    this is a work in progress for now.
    just wanna do some simple stuff to him just like everyone else.

    i do wanna paint his chest and arms and a little on his face mask.

    but my main concern for right now as i do not have access to my parts till in a few weeks are his weapons.

    with the stuff i have now, iv make a new gun out of styrene and the end of the gun that he came with. when i do return home to where my parts are i might want to remake it so it is a lot bulkier

    but here it is so far. and theres no peg in it yet, its just being held on with friction.

    it does look a little plain right now i know. I'm not too great with random details on styrene. but I'm working on it

    I like that you're making his gun out of that craptacular thing he came with. Hope to see more soon, :)

    Looks cool. I think I'm going to try something similar.

    And I hope it is your "parts" that you don't have access to yet and not your pants. You don't want to customize with your "pants" off.

    Do you have any experience with 3D modeling and thus Shapeways? I love this idea But thinking rendering the styrene parts could allow reproduction and loads more detail that would blend better with the blaster parts? Not to mention gives the rest us a chance to do the same thing!

    i wish. but nah. iv got no clue on 3d stuff or shape ways. iv bought from it and love it but never made anything myself.

    thats why i made this. to have a gun for now until someone makes a gun on shape ways. I'm surprised it hasn't been done yet
