Building a 3D printed Mech

Vintage Kenner Hoth Playset

Phil over at Battlegrip dug up this commercial of the old Hoth Ice Planet playset. I used to have this (and the Sandcrawler playset it was based off of). It was a lot of fun, but the cardboard backdrop was just not durable at all. How much I wish we could get a DVD of all the old star wars commercials in good quality.


Road Wars / Star Wars custom figures

Alpha nerd Patton Oswalt commissioned this set of Road Warriors / Star Wars action figures from customizer Sillof. He’s done previous commissions for Oswalt including Steampunk Star Wars. These are so far removed from actual action figures though, I think they are more like statues at this point. I think “custom” in regard to action figures means you modified an existing figure to build a new one. These seem all original, with slight nods to Star Wars. Still, very cool.

Building a 3D printed Mech

Our friend David White from Mechazone got a 3D printer and decided to turn one of his mecha illustrations into a 3D model. For a first try the result is extremely impressive. It gives hope that someday we will all be building our own mechs. Follow his progress on his new instagram account.
