    Hi Everyone,

    I'm happy to introduce you to Lord Valen, another character I chose to incorporate into my Viacon Universe. He's an homage to one of my favorite characters. As you can see, I've taken a few liberties with regards to the design he's based, so as to make him my own. I wanted to incorporate an east asian vibe to the design, in order to give him the appearance of wearing a samurai's head dress, while still maintaining the character's overall feel. I hope you like it.

    If you so choose, the model may be used with the TF Voyager "Cyberton" Vector Prime, TF Voyager "Galaxy Force" Vector Prime, TF Voyager "Universe" Vector Prime, TF Voyager "Botcon 2007" Alpha Trion or any other figure you can fit it on. The model "does not require" a screw or glue and has a "tight fit" on the neck joint of said figures, if printed in the "Frosted Ultra Detail Material" pictured below. If you purchase the "FUD" material, please remove any excess material that may be present in the neck cavity (my print had some print residue) and take extra care when attaching the head, due to the tight fit. The "FUD" material is a bit more fragile than the White Strong Flexable "WSF" material. Please note that I have only printed the design in the "Frosted Ultra Detail" material so as to retain as much detail as possible from the digital model.

    If you're interested in viewing a 3D turnaround of the design and want to pick up a print, please click on the link below.

    Questions and comments on the design or bio are welcome.

    If you're unfamiliar with my threads, my goal is to create a new Universe called "THE VIACONS." Here's the log line.

    “The VIACONS are a long lived race of techno-organic beings that reside on the sentient world of VIACON 1. Recently emerging from a millennia long war that decimated much of their population and leveled their once great cities-the Viacons seek to rebuild their Empire and restore it to its former glory. During the Great Viaconian Wars, much of their population were scattered across the quadrant, existing in small pockets of lawless outposts throughout the system. In the new order, the Viacon Republic and its Senate, have sought to reunite all Viaconians back into the fold. However, an ancient enemy, long thought extinct and only spoken of in myth, has made a silent return. Cloaked in secrecy, the Tecrom have infiltrated parts of the Senate and have begun undermining the foundation of its rule. The few who are aware of the threat have formed a clandestine resistance-systematically recruiting into their ranks, those who posses unique qualities that will aid them in their struggle to expose and ultimately drive out the Tecrom."


    NAME: Lord Valen
    AFFILIATION: Viacon Senate
    POSITION: Super Scientist
    [​IMG]

    Lord Valen was many things; a humanitarian, an ambassador, a war hero, a respected Senator and most notably, a super scientist. Historians credited him as the creator of the “Pulse,” a device that put an end to the Great Viaconian Wars. When activated, the device all but extinguished every spark of Titan 7, Viacon 1’s outermost moon and the impregnable stronghold of Lord Volcrom, the malevolent warlord of the Tecrom Empire whose power lust ignited the Great Wars that engulfed the entire quadrant for nearly a thousand years. Valen was hailed as a hero, an interplanetary treasure and was bestowed the title of Lordship and granted a life long seat in the newly formed Viacon Senate. However, it was also known that Lord Valen was deeply troubled by his decision to deploy such as weapon. For a time, he withdrew from the public eye and became a recluse. The once ambitious scientist saw the destructive power of his brilliance and vowed never to use his gifts to take another spark. Many sought to acquire the device, but the weapon was believed to be dismantle and its components melted to scrap. Seeing the danger such knowledge possessed, he maintained a security detail for those seeking to recruit his genius for such a purpose. As a Senator, he sought redemption for his part in the termination of so many lives. On the floor, Lord Valen was single minded in his desire to unify the outer worlds that splintered during the Great Wars. In his resolve, he never strayed from the cause and was the driving force in the early days of the Senate, urging them to reach out to the outer worlds that declined the invitation to join the Planetary Coalition the Senate represented at war's end. He had hoped the Senate would do as the Oracles* did and establish a dialogue with the factions that held power in the lawless sectors beyond the coalition. He was tireless in his efforts, and traveled to many worlds to fulfill his vision. However, it was on one such peace keeping mission, that he and his entourage went missing. Set to mediate a non-aggression pact between two warring factions, Lord Valen and the shuttle carrying his entourage lost contact and disappeared. In his absence, tensions between the factions reached a boil and erupted in a short war that decimated the entire sector. Each faction blamed the other for Lord Valen’s disappearance. At the onset of the conflict, the Senate formed the VSU, an elite Viaconian Special Units group of highly trained soldiers, charged with the forceful extraction of key personnel from volatile situations. Headed by the VSU field commander, Lt. Ironside, the unit was unable to determine the cause, or parties involved in the Senator’s disappearance. Only a few fragments of the envoy’s shuttle were retrieved, as a detailed investigation was impossible due to the fighting. Lord Valen was declared officially offline and through a unanimous vote of the Senate, the Planetary Coalition ordered its borders closed to the outer worlds and withdrew its invitation to join the coalition. A millennia has past, the Viacon Republic has replaced the Planetary Coalition. Viacon 1 and its Senate is the seat of power of the Republic and oversees all worlds under its banner. Under its rule, these planets have advanced and prospered through mutual cooperation. However, the outer worlds, now known as the Separatist Colonies, have gone without a central government. They operate as independent city states, whose borders and laws do not extend outside its walled cities and lawlessness remains unchecked between the worlds.

    Thanks for the compliment man.

    With regards to Metal Head, I had to make an adjustment on him. He'll be back up in a few days when the print comes in. I'll make sure to PM you when it arrives. So no worries he'll be back.

    Any chance this can be scaled down for Deluxe Generations Scourge? I find that figure to be a better fit.

    I didn't even know about the botcon version till now, never thought of using that mold, but it works. Going to redo the shoulders and the chest panel too, but it wont be hard

    Whatever you want to use the model with.

    I've always liked that mold, very regal. I'm sure Hasbro/Takara dug the design too since it was produced four different times. Yeah, that botcon A3 was very cool but I'm not sure a lot of fans have it due to its exclusivity and cost. BTW, please post pics of your work when done. I'd love to see what you do with the toy and design.

    Thanks!!

    Always appreciate the support.

    Very cool!!

    Thanks. With regards to the original design, it would have looked kind of plain in this scale if I didn't add more detail. I'm glad the adjustments work for you guys. I like it much more than the other one. So...can I count on you to paint this guy up for me?

    Thanks man. I recently saw that Botcon exclusive and was taken aback by how well that character works for that mold. I wish they made a deluxe scale that would fit the classics line. Whatever the case, I would think that this version of the character would look amazing displayed next to MP-10. Now if I can just get Xaviercal to paint it up...

    Will do man! & just as a fan, you should try to make an"armour" for RID ARCEE that turns her into the g1version. Some of that parts on animated Arcee actually can swap, loosely with the RID, version
