I had an idea for the upcoming Botcon Gigatron/Overlord. What if, instead of samurai accessories, he could be made to look more Roman? Two parts to this: I put together some quick papercraft coverings for his chest and loincloth area that look more like Roman Lorica Segmentata armor. Second, I quickly prototyped up a galdius to replace the wakizashi, and a pilum (spear) to replace the Katana. The pilum consists of a spear base, a handle that slides up and down the base, and an end-cap to stop the handle from coming off. By sliding the handle all the way down the base, the spear fits in just like the Katana would. At this point, either the handle could be resculpted to look like a tank barrel end, or a cover piece (a la HeadRobots Blood) could be slipped over it. And, all together now: Because I'm spending all my time available for these kind of projects on a Shapeways printed Kranix, I don't have any more time to put into this, nor do I have the talent to make the armor in anything other than papercraft. So, if anyone wants to the the idea and run with it, especially if you can have pieces to sell at Botcon, I'll be first in line to buy.
