Prometheum5's collected works
I posted the PRHI ‘Box’ Mk I 3D printed toy a while back. It was designed as an exercise for me to try out some new joint designs. It’s a bootleg of ThreeA’s Square toy, with some additional detail and accessory bits by me. I had never really planned on using this model for anything more, but I have received a couple requests to share the files. Sort of an ‘open source’ Square bootleg. I’m hosting a .zip folder of the STL files needed to print your own ‘Box’ for personal purposes. The models are intended to be printed in ABS plastic, as I do not believe PLA has the elasticity for the ratchet joints in the legs to work properly. In addition to the Box Mk I, I am posting files for the Box Mk II, which I do not believe I have ever shown off before:
Here are download links for the two sets of files. Each is a .zip folder containing all the parts needed to print a PRHI Box. Parts that need to be printed more than once are labeled as such in the filename. These are provided as-is, with no support. If you print one and do something cool with it, send me an email!

C-3PO has seen better days…

No wonder R5’s motivator was bad after such poor maintenance.

Since Disney took over the Star Wars property, it has been a licensing free-for-all, with a massive influx of products from every manufacturer imaginable. The best toy and model products, of course, are coming from Japan. Bandai has been making some excellent new SW toys and models, including these new 1/12 scale plastic kits of some of some of the franchise’s most famous droids. The kits are masterworks of engineering, just like Bandai’s Gundam plamo lines. They are designed to be built without paint, with most parts molded in color and decals for the rest. In C-3PO’s case, the entire kit came with a vacuum-formed chrome finish. I used the kit colors, but obviously couldn’t leave them so crisp and clean. I applied the kit decals, painted the silver bits with a better metallic color (Monster Kolor!), and then hit everything with a coat of satin varnish. 3PO did not need any additional paint except for the wires, belly bit, and his palms. From there, I went to town with the weathering, showing these three after some hard times trudging through the sands of Tatooine. I’ll be posting full galleries of each this week, so check back!
Here’s an extra pic with a cameo appearance by my PRHI 3D Printed Gonk Droid!
