Female Pilot [Stand-Alone] »

MothPilot

We commissioned Christophe Desse to design this Female Pilot for our Deaths-Head Hawkmoth with the intent that she can also fit the Hornethopter and Dragonfly pilots seats. While two of her come with the moth kit, we are offering her as a stand-alone piece for use with those kits and anything else your imagination comes up with!

Two New Waterslide Decals Sets! »

1-35Warehouse

Two new deluxe waterslide decals sets have been added to the shop for preorders. The first, the Warehouse and Shipping set is designed for use on anything shipping, cargo, or stowage related. Fits perfectly with our Solid, Liquid and Gas container sets!

1-35Flags

The second is our International Nautical Signal Flags set. This is made for 1/35 scale, but can be used for 1/48 through 1/20 if desired. Simply fold the wet decals over string and let set!

1/6 Scale Ninja Blades »

IM24-1-6scaleKunai

I made this Shruiken and Kunai set for use with the TDM Ninja Tortoises I purchased at Wonderfest this spring, but they can be used for any 1/6 scale figure. These photoetched steel throwing stars, knives, and sword blade/guards can be blackened, sharpened and more!

Chompbot #5 Print Materials »

cb5-sample-label

Thought you’d like to see the print works for the upcoming Chompbot #5 release. Still working on the labels/instructions for the figures, but these are done and out the door. (there was corrections made to these prior to print if you can see the errors. 😉 )

cb5-sample-inst

As you can see the cover of the instructions is also a frame-able print of Jake Parkers Chompbot/Trooper art! We’ll roll these instead of folding them to place into the boxes of course.

The master for the bot is at BLAP Models for casting and the figures are at Collapse Industries. When they’re close to all ready, we’ll start the preorder for these. Probably next month (August 2012) as we’re still playing catch-up.

Futuristic Figures Coming Soon! »

You may have seen these posted on the Futuristic Facebook page. These figures have been 3D sculpted by David Richardson based on designs by Walter Pezalli and Vincent Roucher (Of Stan and Vince). They’ll be available initially in 1/20 scale to go with the Futuristic Robots (available here) with the potential for a 1/35 scale release as well. Here are some preliminary shots. Almost done… just tweaking the poses and equipment.

Chompbot Print Master Images

Been promising pics of these for a few days, but had some random stuff to deal with first before I could get to them. I’ve been working on some minor detail-up and clean-up to the mecha reprint as the original had some issues, but the reprint lacked some of the mods of the original. All good now though! Sorry for the excessive use of sticky-tack on the figs, but I can’t glue them otherwise I couldn’t cast them! The canopy will be vacuformed instead of clear resin and there will be photoetch to complete the figures.

These will go to the casters tomorrow I believe which means they’ll be ready in about 6-8 weeks. No plans for a preorder date just yet but of course if you filled out the ‘Notify Me’ form in the sidebar, I’ll let you know in advance of the date.

Jake Parker’s Chompbot No. 5 and Chomp Troopers Sets

Chomp Bot Announcement - Please Share!

Wanted to let everyone know that this project is pretty much done except for the 3D printing and about to go into productions by showing off some colorizations of the 3D renders and announcing the release date of Late June 2012. Still working on the final cost yet however… that usually happens once it goes to the caster for a quote.

Chompbot Color Variations

There will be two sets available. The Chompbot No. 5 w/ Pilots Set & The four-figure Chomp Trooper Set.

chompfigsresin

The figures in both sets are 50mm which makes them the same size as a 1/35 scale figure. We did this so that they can be used with other 1/35 scale accessories and vehicle kits. We’re thoughtful that way!

Chomp Trooper Variations

This is a different, very fun, less serious kind of model-kit release that we think you’ll enjoy. Please help spread the help and share this where you can to help us create some buzz. We hope to be able to bring you more of this sort of thing in the coming months. Thanks!
