This thread gets better every time you post. Love those shields.
Omigod these are amazing!!
nice work love the details on the treads
Thanks for the kind words. While waiting for revised 3dprints of the shields to finish I was inspired to do a mashup with my Rivet Wars figures.
Up-armored mechs and quad stugs escort the Griffin's Hammer artillery piece into range.
Work on the shields. I only have photos to go from but this is good because I didn't want an exact copy of the DA-27 shield. I have no idea what's happening in the back
I'm going to try making a silicone mold of these. Then I can cast them in all kinds of colors. Fingers crossed.
Those should be pretty easy to put in an envelope mold.
Casting some shields! Need to get those mechs armored up before the Waruder arrive
Are you going to sell these on ebay!? Or an STL link?? Theyre so amazing!
Let us know when they are up on your Etsy.
There's 3D-printed custom toy accessories on Etsy?!? Holy crap
ohh my friend you have no idea.
Cripes. Well, looks like I have some window shopping to do!
Any favorite stores or sellers to recommend?
Because of the interest in the project I have put some Diaclone compatible shields up for sale in the Etsy shop.
Diaclone Garnet Shield elite forces. This is the most dangerous part of the mission. The great weight of the power suits makes balancing the transport more difficult for the pilot.
Some of the shields are still up for sale in the store - Etsy Store - Shields
Just getting into the Diaclone Reboot stuff, and loving your work!
a) awesome work! Thanks for posting
b) have you ever looked at the Starcom toys? I had some when I was a kid and - like the Diaclone reboot powered suits - the vehicles would compact into transportation sized, cargo pod shaped boxes that would then store in larger vehicles. And... the pilots had magnets on the feet (it took me tying that out to realize how Diaclone like that line was....). Just putting it out there because I figured it might, at best, be inspiration, and at worst be interesting
c) do you have a 3D printer you recommend? Feel free to pm me if you don't want to advertise to the world what you are using.
a - it's fun to post and get feedback on things. Though I've been too busy to work on any diaclone stuff. But I think I'll get back into it sometime.
b - Yes! I never had them as a kid but love the spring action "opening" the vehicles have. I've thought of buying pieces on ebay but don't need another toyline in my life
c - I started with a printrbot. Also used shapeways. This past year I bought an anycubic photon. If you don't mind messing around with resin I'd highly recommend this printer because it's super high detail and under $500.
This is some really great work!
I think what I like about your work is that, unlike other non-Diaclone stuff, it actually looks great with actual Diaclone figures. It doesn't stand out as being out of place next to them. Aside from the printing striations, which can be easily rectified with filler, they look beautiful.
One day, I would love to paint one of these up and add it to the shelf if you ever make them available.
