  1. Thanks for the kind words about my work. And yes the robot does indeed split apart into two different figures.
  2. Many thanks for making the figures TNI Cool Custom of the week!
  3. Thanks! Those are my among my favorites as well. I always wanted to make charaters that look just really old school heroic. I think I succeded with them. Thank you! That was quite fun. It may take a little while before I make another one but I really want to continue with this. Don't worry. I am not sure I would have had time to work on something like that anyway. But thanks for thinking of me.
  4. I posted some new 3D printed figures in another thread about my Spacemen, Robots and Neanderthals line. http://forums.toynewsi.com/topic/2098256-3d-printed-action-figures-with-stop-motion-animation/?p=16829007
  5. Here are some more figures from that series I have been working on lately. I hope to use some of them in further animations down the line.
  6. Thank you! I hope to have some new stuff ready soon. :-)
  7. Thank you! I have a rough idea for the back story but I am still working on the details. Maybe one day I will make a comic book with them...
  8. Here are some updates. I finished making smooth versions of all the characters now. I also slightly modified some of them. Last but not least I made a new character, the bombing squirrel.
  9. [video=youtube;RUkOH35kp5Q] This is my second stop motion animation using my 3D printed action figures. Ever since I started using acetone to smooth my figures I wanted to make a new one to show the nicer looking figures. I also bought new camera equipment that is less shaky allowing me to keep post processing of the pictures taken to a minimum. I did use Blu Tack on the feet to stabilize the figures and armatures for the flights, jumps and falls but other then that all you see here can actually be performed just with the joints of the figures. Modeling Software: MODO 3D Printer: Strat
  10. I recently started using acetone to smooth my 3D printed figures. Here are some examples from the super hero line. It works quite well for these models.In some caes I used the reprint to slighlty update the designs as well. I also wanted to see how easily I could give my 5 point articulated figure a modern articulation without compromising the original design too much. So I made one of the main hero character. I am quite happy with the result. I especially like that the body segments move as if the owl would move its head and body.
  11. I made a new version of my caveman action figure. This is the first figure that has ball joints only. I am quite happy. The figure is the easiest to assemble and very sturdy. It is also easy to swap parts. I used this figure for a stop motion animation. The parts shown here were used to create different gestures and emotions. Here is the stop motion animation to test the sturdiness and articulation of my 3D printed action figures. The animation is rough and just a series of action sequences but I think it gets the point across. I did have to do quite a bit of touching up in Photoshop
  12. Here is my latest Mechawhales animation based on the new 3D printable figures: After defeating the Overlord of the Alien Invaders, the Mechawhales won a shaky truce. Now they must steer the new Alien Leader to a permanent path of peace. But with an extremist group inside the Alien military planning to ignite the war once more, will their endeavor be successful?
  13. Here are some simple 5 point articulation super hero action figures I recently made. The super hero guys are all owl themed. Then there is a deluxe police figure with two heads, pose able tonfas and a one wheeled scooter. I have two villains so far. The main bad guy is based on a rooster while the other one is a simple goon type figure. Although limited in articulation I still was able to get some fun poses out of them. All figures were 3D printed and painted by me.
  14. Thanks. The Beluga is my second favorite after the regular Mechawhale. I know most people like the Orca better but for some reason I always prefered the Beluga.
  15. I have made some more 3D printable Mechawhales figures and customizing sets. They are available from the Deep Fried Figures 3D printing shop on Sculpteo. www.sculpteo.com/en/s/deepfriedfigures/ This Mechawhales character is called Captain Moby. He was briefly seen in the very first Mechawhales animation He will also have a big part in the upcoming 5th Mechawhales animation coming soon the Mechawhales Youtube Channel. Joining the regular Mechawhales PVC figure is the fearsome Mechawhales Beluga. This print is based on the Beluga Mechawhales animation model. I also made s
  16. Thanks so much for making my figures custom figure of the week. I feel honored to be featured there. Here is one more figure. This is the first villain from the Space Wreck Scavengers figure line. I had a lot of different concepts as how the villains should look but in the end decided they should not look too differently from the heroic Space Wreck Scavengers. They are basically just another gang looking for treasure but for more selfish reasons then the heroes. There fore their equipment and looks are just a little bit more aggressive then the outfits of the heroes. The figure has the sam
  17. The other 3D printing thread is getting kinda long so I decided to give these guys their own. This is a line of alien action figures made via 3D printing using my latest incarnation of ball joints. This not only made the figures a lot sturdier then previous 3D printed ones, it also meant I could reduce their size a little bit bringing them to 6 inch scale. Furthermore since the ball joints can be plugged in I no longer have seams at the side of the figure. The story goes like this: The great interstellar civilizations have perished in the last galactic war. All that is left of them are
  18. Here are the female versions of both the android and the robot. Overall I am happy with them. At this scale the resolution of my printer reaches its limits when it comes to the human faces of the androids though. They are not very smooth. However I explain this in the story by saying that Earth's pollution takes its toll on the artificial skin of the androids. This also gives a reason to why they wear helmets most of the time. :-) With the female robot I prefer the version without the faceguard. She looks cuter that way. Although I kinda like the faceguard as well.
  19. Thanks! The paint is a little bit rough in some places due to the surface not being entirly smooth from the printing process but overall I think she came out pretty nice.
  20. This was a comission for a client. The original character can be seen here: http://twilightkirby...nnamed-Bug-Game The figure is fully articulated though her dress restricts the movement of the legs somewhat. Doing this character was a lot of fun. She has a really nice design and it is always fun to do female action figures. The figure was made in 3D and then printed and hand painted by me.
  21. Really cool. I always liked those old Kenner figures although their execution left something do be desired. Your updates however are perfect. I wish I had them as a kid. :-)
  22. I can do other peoples likenesses but only if I have permission from that person to make a sculpt of them. Thank you. I want to turn that last story into a larger project so I can also learn more about the animation and rendering features of the software I am currently using. So hopefully there well be some additional material based on that story later this year.
  23. These are my latest 3D printed custom figures. Their joints are a little bit different then my previous figures. I rely more on ball joints now that can simply be plugged into the sockets for the figure. The result is a much sturdier figure. I did not go super crazy with the articulation on these two but they can be posed quite well. On the other hand these guys are much more solid and feel a lot more like proper toys then all my previous figures. The story concept is that mankind has given up the polluted Earth to go for the stars but has left most of its mechanical servants behind. Eventua
