Growing up with Gi Joe in the 70's was great as a kid. Then after my kids started in the 90's with the 3 3/4 Joes I got hooked on collecting them. Fast forward to 2010 when the Club released the 3 3/4 Adventurers, I bought them all and customized more. I just couldn'nt get enough of the fuzzy head bearded Adventurers that I grew up with. But one major piece was missing, the cool vehicles.
Being a design engineer I thought hey just redesign the vehicles I grew up with using 3D cad then print the pieces out on a 3D printer. I also vacuum formed the bubble from the 3d printed bubble. I've also made the 6x6 ATV complete with working winch.

Man wish my "pops" was less into making beer pyramids & into fabricating Joe vehicles for me when I was a lad, those are Ahhhhhmazing, great job, I did take CAD classes but had to take leave when economics at home forced me to work & I couldn't work the night classes angle either, I can always go back but this is one the reasons I was interested in the field. One of my final projects was to do an technical drawing of one of my guitars, it was fun but rough...Great Work & Even cooler that you made them from a 3D Printer, that invention will change our collecting world in the years to come. I can't wait till the cost of printing our own designs becomes cheaper & easier for the layman....while I wouldn't take the pirating road I would definitely make my own stuff....once again Fricken Awesome work man

That is fantastic. I knew this 3D stuff is going to change the future of toys. I wish I could do it.
