    I recently got an 80th Thor and decided I wanted one of those hammer effects that makes it look like it’s spinning. I know there are commercially available options out there, but I figured I could come up with something a little different. I’ve made two versions so far. They don’t actually spin...but they kind of look like they are...which is kind of the point. Lol. Anyway. Here they are...comments and suggestions are welcome! Both are 3D printed in clear PLA and painted with Testors acrylics.

    I love them both! I personally like the bending grip of the second with the connected swoosh lines of the first

    Awww shucks. Thanks, guys. And I agree that a combined version with the bent grips and the central swoosh plane might look the best. Gonna have to give that a shot...

    Tis a magnificent work, verily! Befitting of the strongest Avenger.

    "oh thor groping the inner thigh of your person makes me see angels. the moist is strong. You have the power."

    i like it. the effect that is. haha. definitely like shwoosh #1. i think you should make a thrown hammer effect piece too, one that connects to the hand and has it leaving or left his hand with the same kind of effect.

    That is a great idea, actually! I'm working on Thwip/Shwoosh V3 right now and should be able to get it printed today.

    I showed that Sorceress figure to my wife...all she said was, "Who is she? She's kinda thick...". It's the thickness that makes her special. The MOTU designers knew what they were doing!

    LOL, shes not really thick. He-man was thick. for a he-man character i think shes pretty well proportioned for a woman. I mean, they could have easily just taken he-mans body and slapped her head on. that would have been disgustingly funny.

    You could also make clip on pieces that clip to thors legs and/or arms if you do the hammer throw effect to make it look like thor is "blurred" as he flies with "meow meow", cuz the throw hammer effect could double as a flight one if you had the hammer just attached to his hand via the strap.

    Version 3 is finished. I think the central transparent disk needs to be thinner/more transparent. Other than that, I am pretty happy with it.

    Well, I really appreciate you saying so. Do you have access to a 3D printer?
