Alright... now, does this project still exist?
I'd love to see it happen, but if it does it probably deserves its own 'Shapeways version' thread, with lots of credit to MasterBlaster for all his CAD work (and of course Macraptron for the head!)
I'm useless at CAD stuff so I can't do much more
Considering the original post for Hench were those colours....yeah, pretty damn annoying.
But yeah. Still on the go! I'm just entrapped in heavy uni work right now, having started my masters year. But I've got all the stuff and I just need to put a neck in the head in theory. Certainly hope that's all that needs doing; Hench was part of my final classics cull so no longer have him to measure against.
No worries my good man
Getting shut of Hench might make fine-tuning a bit tricky though!
This is awesome dude, great job, I want to try this badly
OptimusTimelord, I hope your next project is modifying iGear Bushwacker.
Thanks man, glad you like!
I've thought about it! There probably wouldn't be as much work involved. Outback isn't exactly a favourite character though, so he's not a priority. Maybe one day...!
I'm not much of a fan of the G1 cartoon look, but I have to say that I love this thread and all the ingenuity and teamwork that you guys have put into making this the figure you want, and that many others do as well. Amazing work. Bravo!
Cheers bud It's definitely been very nice to have the contributions and see the project develop in a bigger way than my customs normally do!
Don't have a massive amount of time right now with job applications and whatnot, but I've upgraded the hands as they were fairly quick and easy to do. This design I'll also be putting out separately for the MP Autocars- one area I think that lets them down right now!
I imagine Mac is keeping himself well busy right now, but I have an older version of the scaled head that, when I get a free moment, I'l cut and chop to fit. I'm no where near as good as Mac though, so nothing fancy I'm afraid; pretty much a prettified version of OpT's original head workaround. Maybe some day something better'll be possible, but til then it'll definitely look the part!
Head, hands....think I need to make one or two edits to the torso besides those two things and the kit is actually ready for a test.
Head proportion looks much, much better..
I'm not sure how I missed this thread, I'm kinda glad I did though it's been a great Sunday afternoon read. The best part is my timing, this looks close to reality now. I never bought hench because of these issues you've both masterfully fixed. Kudos. I can't wait to get this. Now I just need a Hench.
Brawn is one of my favorites, here's my pathetic version, glad to have a replacement!
Ya know, that's not such a bad choice!
That actually looks pretty good!
Did this kit ever get finished?
It's in limbo I'm afraid... Master Blaster is no longer on the boards (though I have his email) but last I heard he was still hoping to finish the CG stuff one day. If anything comes of it, I'll be sure to let you guys know.
Really need to learn me some 3D software...
Ok. Thank you for keeping us posted.
My sig is my custom Eradicator made from one of those M.A.R.S. Converters.
Did the shapeways kit ever get finished?
I think it's a pretty safe bet that OPTL has moved on at this point, judging by the thread date.
Thats unfortunate and sorry about responding to such an old thread i didn't really pay attention to the dates
Ha ha yes this is ancient history now (I think Badcube Brawny was the final nail in the coffin). The 3rd party scene has really exploded since those days, so I don't have much call to customise anymore...
