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.

We will also be working on releasing some unsigned Remora prints so watch for those. These are the same prints, will be the same price, but unsigned.

 

More Remora Goodies

I got an image of the Captain figure’s 3D print today. Looks really nice and I can’t wait to see it in person. The model was done by Fin McGechie based on Ian’s sketches. We’ll have more Ian McQue figures available later this year that’ll be perfect for the Remora and future airship releases.

I also wanted to show what the final print will look like for those of you that have ordered the version with the signed print. Obviously this hasn’t been signed yet, but shows the format. The size is 11″ x 20″ to allow it and it’s tube to fit within the box.
