    DOTM Evil Soldier's Sidearm "Scolex Spiker"
    Update Feb 24, 2012


    [​IMG]

    Among the models I recieved in my last delivery, the Scolex Spiker was the biggest
    surprise. I'd must say it looks really good! in a model kit kind of quality. I found the
    spikes are a little thin. Very movie accurate, but as a figure accessory I had to
    thicken it somewhat. Hence all the subsequent orders of the Spiker will have the
    thicker spikes.

    For those who have already ordered their Spikers (Thank you!) don't worry too much
    about it. The Strong Flexible material is sturdy enough for the spikes to survive
    regular handling. Don't stab anyone, please.

    Notice that there is a hole above the handle on both sides of the blaster. Those holes
    are 3mm in diameter so feel free to accessorize the blaster with your cyberverse trinkets.

    And yes, the handle is a 5mm peg. It should fit most of your welkeresque voiced evil henchmen.

    All in all I'm very happy with this guy. It looks really phenomenal when printed out;
    imagine how it looks in black, silver and all beat up!

    Comments and critique appreciated!

    You can order the cannons here at
    Evil soldier sidearm "Scolex Spiker" on Shapeways.

    Printing in Strong Flexible or Detailed material are both possible.
    I would recommend the former for best durability.

    Can't wait to get a few of these, any chance you can enlarge this one too, to human alliance scale? I'd like one for Barricade, and $oundwave

    RotF Sideways with Scolex Spiker

    Just posted a thread with my Scolex Spiker painted: RotF Sideways with fakebuske83 Scolex Spiker

    The detail on this gun is truly breathtaking. All those little tubes and wires... And I'd also be interested in a Human Alliance sized one!

    Ew...no! It wasn't that!
    The name was inspired by Barricade's voice actor in DOTM, who is also famous for voicing many other famous villians...
    It was supposed to reference Dr Claw from Inspector Gadget: Dr Sanford Scolex.

    But when I think about it...yeah, the tapeworm anatomy kinda fits.

    Ew.

    That's hilarious... because that nasty, toothy, jagged appendage really does thematically match the hooked and barbed anchor-head of a tapeworm. Amazing little coincidence! :lol
