    I've been working on a batch of 3d printable "Combat Creatures" through my Shapeways store. I really dig Battle Beasts and decided to make some homage figures.

    I have two currently released designs Rampager Rex/Terrifying Tyrannosaurus, a cyborg Tyrannosaurus Rex (of course) and Titanic Triceratops. Two upcoming releases "Stalwart Styracosaur" and "Atomic Allosaur" are shown in rough renders, though I'm still working out details and colors.

    A print of Rampager Rex in Shapeways colored sandstone is shown in the last two pics. Color 3d printing was one of the major inspirations for this project.

    Thoughts?

    These are great!! Will definitely willing to try out a few of these when I have the budget to spare. Would love to see an Ankylosaur/Pterosaur, among others...the possibilities are fantastic. Excellent work!

    This is the stuff of legends. Who here votes that they should make a Battle Beasts tv series?

    Definitely, but only if it was in 80's anime style :)

    It isn't a dinosaur, but I've been working on another figure in this play style I think kids of the 80s will like.

    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.
    Click here to see Muty on Shapeways.

    About 2 inches tall, the size of a Battle Beast.

    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.

    Under a new pricing scheme by Shapeways this material is now less expensive than it was just a few days ago, at least on most items.

    Prices have been updated accordingly, some dropping by as much as $7 per print.

    The Octavirate Forge Store is, as always, here. The Combat Creatures section is here.

    I purchased the Titanic Triceratops, and it is pretty cool. Would love to see more.

    I'd love to see some G1 Dinobot-themed repaints. That would be cool.

    I'm actually working on some new combat creatures right now. First new one should be out in about a week.
