Neat videos.
Also through this I learned you can actually get generic bodies you can customize.
Speaking of, ever think we'll get 3d printing to the point that we can get good statues?
I suppose one could print something and then sand it.

Yes absolutely, with a little finishing you can get pretty much anything you want.

Decided against getting hot toys wonder woman justice league version because I don't like the head. I could get a replacement head but no.

So instead I will get Shuri when she comes out in July. Or maybe the comic version of wonder woman that should be out soon. It would have the added bonus of not reminding me of that terrible justice league movie. The comic version head doesn't look much like Gadot but it is better than the justice league head. Of coarse I haven't seen a production model yet so the head could change.

My dremel that's sat mostly unused for more than a decade is intrigued. Oh, but I don't know if I could justify the expense of a 3d printer. Then again, I'd pretty much just have to make three to five statues before the cost would be equivalent.

Also somewhat related, Blender 3D 2.80 Beta #b3d has been released and omg it seems so much better. Although not too many of the changes speak to sculpting.

Hey, I have that, but mine's called "Jetfire".

The history behind Jetfire is interesting, I wish I had kept mine. Evidently, "unused" versions go for a pretty penny. They appear to yellow much like other light-colored plastics from the 80's.

Small update (if anyone cares), I decided to take a chance on an ebay seller, who unfortunately could not procure the item locally in Japan, but thankfully they cancelled and refunded my order. So I went back to searching and found a reasonably priced version on Amazon Japan, which shipped with a speed that rivals Amazon Prime [sic] to the U.S. Thanks for all the suggestions, I hope this does not become a habit.

Quintin, I know you want one of these.

Ha, Devastator. We had the 5 constructicons, but I don't know who in the family ended up with them. But I have Jetfire and Optimus Prime (original), so I'm happy.

he even comes with a cup a' tea...

Fe#kin adorable that.

Oh and I have a question !

I've noticed that the last couple of years has seen a massive improvement in the detail level in some figurines….

that is Peter Cushing !

So has there been some new moulding tech invented, or are these super detailed heads being 3D printed ?.

Yeah a lot of figure companies moved from a stamping process to a printer like inkjet system and the figures are much better for it.

Ooooh, now this is a bit different....

Gwenpool riding Saber's bike. I wasn't able to find black suited Saber that goes with the bike. I could only find a sexy version of Saber that kind of looks like it based on on the suited version. She is in black but wears boy shorts, a mini jacket , and regular black top. I seen her depicted on a black version of the bike but haven't seen a Fate season with that version of Saber. I haven't watch the last three seasons of Fate. The bike scales well with 7 inch figures.

Nice modelling on the face, gives her a petted lip....

Hey All,

I bought my first gunpla kit the other day. It's just a little squished up chibi type thing....I have never experienced anything to do with gundam but the models look so cool, I wanted to give building one a go and maybe it could be new hobby.

Anyone else build these things/have any tips?

Cheers

I never heard gundams referred to as gunpla. Oh just looked it up. So that what they call it japan, interesting.

Nice...

Anyone into Marvel Legends Walmart made a mistake and put the current wave 2 black panther line at $5 each clearance. The wave 1 line is still full price so I'm sure it is a mistake but who knows when they will correct it.

Something a little different again.....

Been a butcher for over 30 years and love the idea of a toy like this teaching kids where meat comes from.

Is that a tiny explosion going off by her shins? That seems dangerous.

Edit: Is uh... is there a Lady Jaye? Asking for a friend.

I'd love to get this Broly figurine
