The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

*ahem* 4th of July....

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

I transform in six steps from human to human sitting on my ass at the computer and back again!

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Behold! Night Strike Galvatron!

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

RAMPAGER REX & TERRIFYING TYRANNOSAURUS ARE COMPLETE!
The tyrannosaurus rex is the first complete Combat Creature design, Nick Tyranno tested the design in Shapeways’ Full Color Sandstone material and Strong & Flexible plastic versions are successfully out of the printer. The upper arms have been reinforced based on Nick’s feedback and the figures are ready for general purchase.
 
I have applied a markup, I only make about $5 per figure once they are tested.

 

Rampager Rex is here.

Terrifying Tyrannosaurus is here.

The white polished Rampager Rex that I ordered came in today. I'm really quite impressed with the smoother finish that still keeps all the details.

 

The arms are quite tight and after reading Nick's comments I'm treating them extra carefully. But that's the only "problem" that I'm having as it's otherwise pretty damn awesome!

NV: It should be less of a problem with the polished plastic, since it can bend. I'm glad you like him thus far.

Muty McFly Parody Figure (Beta)
The 80s are back in all their technicolor horror with Muty McFly, a horrifying time-displaced combination of man and insect. Who could have predicted that plutonium, time travel and an untrained teenage test subject could go horribly wrong?
 
Muty comes with two points of articulation and is in full color for Full Color Sandstone and (eventually) Full color plastic. He is roughly the size and style of a 1980s Battle Beast figurine. 
Muty is the latest Combat Creature pending testing in full color sandstone before cost markup is applied to his model. He is the same size as a Battle Beast, with a 3mm grip and two points of articulation at the shoulders, which are 5mm pegs.

I got my first test prints of my Combat Creatures,Titanic Triceratops in colored sandstone, Rampager Rex in Full Color Plastic, the combat creature minis in green polished plastic, and the still-awaiting-SuperFanArt approvals Beastformers Twilight Sparkle.
 
They’re shown with the Battle Beast Hippo in the first shot for scale.
 
What I’ve learned from these prints:
 
Full Color Sandstone’s tolerances are so divergent from the Strong and Flexible Plastics that I’m going to be putting up two files for each creature. The one done for Full Color Sandstone will not have arm articulation, it doesn’t work well even when the pegs are the right size. This means that until Shapeways offers Full Color Plastic for sale the full color versions will only be available as non-articulated figurines. 
 
Full Color plastic is really nice. The shoulder joints fit perfectly and the color is very pretty (better than what shows up in the pics.).
 
That said, full color sandstone is also spiffy. It has a nice heft and isn’t as fragile as feared, but it is meant mainly for display statuettes. I don’t see this as a big deal, since how many of us are smashing our desk toys together anyhow?
 
I’m going to be updating my models accordingly throughout the afternoon/evening. Check them out here.
 
Keep in mind that prices on strong-and-flexible plastic will be changing (mostly dropping) on the 7th. If you want something in sandstone or detail plastic, however, those aren’t changing and you can order immediately.
 
Also, a new creation!

Fetid Fly!
 
I went more TMNT with this one, with dripping ooze, a garbagecan backpack (rusted out bottom revealing trash inside, etc). He, of course, reuses parts of Muty McFly.

Shapeways altered their pricing formulas on the "Strong and Flexible" plastics. While this has required the addition of sprues/runners on some models, the cost to produce most of my models has dropped, in some cases quite substantially. I've gone through and updated the prices accordingly.
 
 
In addition to the Combat Creatures, there are 5mm Transformers-compatible weapons, a pack of Jack-Kirby inspired Masters of the Universe compatible 4mm-grip weapons and some other fun surprises. Check it out!

Shapeways resolution tends towards sandpapery unless you get the more expensive materials and finish.
