Prometheum5's collected works
I recently picked up a loose Transformers G1 Hosehead that was missing all of the accessories except for the head. This guy is always crazy expensive for some reason, so I spent a little time and made some 3D printed replacement accessories to complete mine. These are available now from Shapeways in two listings, one is a sprue of all the black parts and the other is the seat/helmet. You can pick them up now from the PRHI Shapeways Store. The pics here are of my home-printed samples. The parts are close copies from reference pictures, but not exact copies so you’ll be able to tell them apart.

Restore is having another painting contest, in collaboration with Pop Soda. I had a great time in the previous contest with my third place entry Gikaku, False Oni. Entries for this contest could use any of Restore’s toys, and I went with Fog because it was pretty much the only way I was going to be able to get one these days. I love the detailed sculpt, so I looked at lots of real life pictures of chameleons for inspiration. Turns out, chameleons are totally rad, so I had a lot to work with. I took key colors from a couple that I liked and tweaked the layout to fit the humanoid shape, and fired up the airbrush. The name “Pardalizard” comes from the species name of some particularly hot looking breeds. The contest is open for a few more months, and then we’ll see how I do!
I took all the photos outside so I could show off my nature-inspired Fog in his home. The photoshoot was a ton of fun and I am really happy with how the photos came out. More after the break, and there are a lot of shots!
The PRHI Micro Moving Mecha is available now from the PRHI Monster Kolor Shop, here: http://www.monsterkolorstore.com/prhi-micro-moving-mecha-debut-production-ver/. Stock is limited so don’t wait!
The newest 3D printed Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries action figure release is finally ready! The PRHI Micro Moving Mecha production release is a project that has been in the works for much longer than I expected. This 3 3/4″ tall, fully posable action figure is designed as a ‘what-if?’, asking what might have happened if Takara had gotten the license for Mobile Suit Gundam instead of the toy company Clover. Based on a sketch by the illustrious Minoru Sashida, the Micro Moving Mecha depicts the Gundam as a Microman line diecast metal figure similar to the Jeeg and Gakeen figures released at the time. The MMM is 3D printed in color, using silver plastic for the limbs and head to represent bare metal, with colored details only for the torso and accessories. The toy features 5 mm peg construction in the major places, with 3 mm diameter hands, meaning that the MMM can hold some vintage Microman accessories, and that authentic Microman figures can wield the MMM’s Clover-inspired Beam Rifle and Beam Sabers.
The PRHI MMM will come in a bag with header and will be available in the PRHI Monster Kolor Shop (http://www.monsterkolorstore.com/prhi/) on April 13th at 8PM EST for $25. I’ll put up a new post on the site with a direct link to the sales page on the night of the drop. For now, enjoy the pics!
