    I'm terribad at CAD, and 3D Drawing programs in particular...

    I was going through my junkbin looking for some GI Joe parts and stumbled over this old Power Ranger hammer. with the right paint, it would make a halfdecent stand-in for the Forge...

    I had to cut the handle down to fit 5mm hands, and I'll paint it up soon. but in my head, it's only that "slightly different" enough for the translation from show to toy.

    What do you guys think? I'd love some opinions...

    I like the idea, though I'll reserve judgement for the final product. The only downside I see so far is the small size. After all, I don't think that'll work for this:

    Then again, it might work for cyberverse figures :inquisiti

    It's a nice touch, but too small...

    I know Shapeways can do it. I can design one, but at that size it's going to cost $50 to $80. Hardly anyone will spend that coin on a hammer...would they???

    I tend to agree. Unless Hasbro comes out with the 13 Primes (haha) and the hammer they provide is a horid representation (undoubtedly it would be then I dont see this selling well on SW.

    Still and awesome use of recycled accessories. Cant wait to see the final product.
