1982 Star Frontiers Ad - 13 April, 2015 - 02:47
A year ago today I posted an ad for TSR’s Star Frontiers roleplaying game ( search*) and mentioned how that wasn’t one of TSR’s better ads of the time.

ThreeA Toys Does DIE ANTWOORD in 1/6

It all started (for me chronologically, anyways) with a sole b/w teaser from H3ADLINES #6 (seen above) … which led to more online peeks for when ThreeA Toys does South African rap-rave group DIE ANTWOORD in 1/6th-scale with both Ninja and Yolandi Visser (Vi$$er) in a yellow Pichaku and pink bear animal "cosplay" outfits (loving her mixed colored sneakers) with a touch of cuddly "zef" … and while

3D Printed M1919 .30 Cal Machine Gun Bale for use with 12″ GI Joe

Prometheum5's collected works - 12 April, 2015 - 13:48

PRHI-MG-Bale copy

This is one of those projects that was something I needed for my collection, and then other collectors expressed interest once they saw it.  I had a loose M1919 .30 caliber machine gun without any of the hardware for the tripod that I got in a parts lot.  Rather than relegate it to the spares bag, I decided to make something that would allow Joe to carry the MG.  I looked online for examples of early MG handles, came up with a design, and sized it to fit in Joe’s hand without putting any stress on his hard hands.  You can buy a bale now from my Shapeways Shop for $6 at:

The bale is available in two plastics, White Strong Flexible Polished, and Metallic Plastic Polished.  The WSF Polished is the default option, and better for painting.  The Metallic plastic is grey with metallic flakes embedded, so it looks decent unpainted.

Check after the cut for pics of each version and Joe holding each.
