I think there's a playset that already exists from a big company that looks just like that. And probably costs way less than a printed item would.

And what exactly is the draw of that Vitruvian man figure? A four-armed monochrome man with his wang out can only be used for so much.

I'm looking at a 1:20 scale APC model from ALIENS to use with my Colonial Marines...but dam I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to drop the coin on it.

It's an action figure of a famous piece of art. It's a novelty, plus it goes with the Michelangelo's David, Venus de Milo and Rodin's The Thinker that already exist.

I'm glad the Japanese do this kind of thing. American companies couldn't think up an original idea to save their lives. Boss Fight and a few other independents excepted.

Without in-depth modification your CM's will be able to just stand around it, at best. Is an under-scaled, largely static APC worth the outlay?

Yeah, I'm aware of the limitations. It's either buy a kit, or build one myself...and I think I've got too much other projects going on to take on something of this complexity.

Fucking BBTS, even with shipping it's still cheaper to buy it from Japan.

Thats often the case. They are a retailer that scalps. They get figures from Asia by the pallet, but instead of dividing up their wholesale bulk shipping cost, they add the shipping cost to each figure as if they had each figure shipped from overseas individually.

Is that a Gundam?

I remember being crazy for Gundam back when it was a regular showing on Cartoon Network, and the 3.75" figures were released. I had a ton of those before I shook that monkey off my back.

I still have my old action figures. Sadly the picture above is not an action figure (the closest to figures Bandai makes is Robot Spirits Damashi stuff). It's a 1/100 model of the MSK-008 Dijeh, from Zeta Gundam, piloted by Amuro Ray.

Been wanting this guy for a while but haven't wanted to cough up the dough. Man the english language is dumb. Those two words spelled nearly identically, yet sound completely different.

Just picked up a kit of this on another board I visit, the pistol from Bladerunner. This shows the assembled gun...what it does not show is the amber colored grips and five bullets. I've loved Bladerunner since I was in Jr. High and I've owned two versions of this same gun but sold them at different points. Hopefully this one will stay with me...barring any financial trouble.

It's obviously 3D printed, so it will need a lot of sanding.

Nice! If you can order in the new acrylic material, do it. It's a MUCH nicer finish.

I don't think it's on Shapeways...at least not this kit. I think the guy is printing them at home, so the way it is is the way it is.

I can hang stuff in my collection/game room, but the walls are already full. Same with my collection shelves. I have to rotate in new things. Sigh. First world problems.
