FOTD: BMOG Toys Action Hunter Ursenal vs. Mantax http://www.16bit.com/fotd/140917-bmog-orange.asp
What’s particularly interesting is they work with a bunch of other toys - the “hammer” makes a great periscope/megaphone for the Battle Beasts Shocking Shark playset.
Another little preview! Press release coming next week!
Happy birthday, G1 cartoon!
Another second-wave Dinosaur in Power Armor printable figure. As with Atomic Allosaurus, I’m not 100% sure on the colors and the final spit-and-polish will have to wait until Muppet Wish Day 2014 is done.
I sculpted him at the same time I was working up Titanic Triceratops. He is smaller than TT, (by about 5%), so he doesn’t threaten Titanic Triceratops’s… titanicness?
Update: Based on feedback, I’ve made some modifications to the face, which are only visible in the last two images.
The Crubbs Handbook of Antique Wooden Cussin’ Bears
I’ve never wanted anything from Liartown to be real as much as this book.
I won’t ever trust anyone again..
OK, I see the first time being kinda evil… but all I see is a BEAUTIFUL pot of candy bliss!
I sometimes put Skittles on a pepperoni pizza.
This does nothing for me. [nom]
Are… are you a ninja turtle?
The Doctor is a time traveller who goes round defeating monsters HE DOESNT FUCKING ROB BANKS
Have you even watched Doctor Who?
He stole a time machine and he’s stole hundreds of other things
The Doctor steals people with surprising frequency. Bank robbery doesn’t even reach the top 10% of things he’s stolen.
Graysharp/Rocky Rhino, Battle Beasts, Series 1, 1987, Takara Tomy/Hasbro
At one time in my fledgling days, I owned every single Battle Beasts figure from series 1 to 3. It’s with regret and sadness that I can only report I have half of that collection left at this point. Some damaged, some lost, some stolen by less than fantastic childhood friends. Amazing toys though.
oh how i’ve longed to get some battle beasts of my own. namely one sly fox, although i do believe that the original name is b-fox. regardless, this is a toy that couldn’t exist anywhere but the 80’s, and i bet he’d fit right in with a certain team of turtles..
To answer your questions, yes, he’s based on Rampager Rex. But 3d printing gives us flexibility that a steel-mold remold couldn’t. Differences:
- Reshaped head. Added the bone crests, reshaped the head to be more Allosaurus-like, smaller but more numerous fangs, two eyes (no cyborg eyepiece.
- Shorter, slighter build, more erect posture.
- Modified upper body armor
- Tail swoops the other way.
- New Arms.
AA won’t be going to print immediately, since I want to nail down a good colorscheme (unsure on this one). Also these guys are my insomnia-project and that’s going to be taken up in the short term by Muppet Wish Day 2014.
Titanic Triceratops is up for test ordering.
Like Rampager Rex, Titanic Triceratops is being offered at no markup until test prints can be made.
MONA LISA IS SUCH A CUTIE WHO COULD KICK SO MUCH BUTT AUGHHHHH I WISH THEY WOULD HAVE USED HER MORE ; M ;
LIKE NOT EVEN AS A LOVE INTEREST FOR RAPH. I MEAN SHE WAS A COLLEGE STUDENT WITH MAJORS IN PHYSICS. SHE AND DONNIE COULD HAVE DONE EXPERIMENTS TOGETHER AND SHE COULD HAVE TRAINED WITH THE OTHERS AND AND AND JUST IMAGINE HER SIPPING TEA WITH SPLINTER, LISTENING TO HIS STORIES.
ok sorry. but she is probably the only character in any fandom that i wish there was more of. I MEAN UGH SHE’S SO ADORABLE.
also drawing belongs to me, Cara Reed 2014
I like the way you think!
I dislike when they give reptile/amphibian mutants hair (I know, it doesn’t make any less sense than anything else the mutagen does, like giving turtles teeth or reducing them to three fingers, its just a thing) but Mona Lisa was still neat and still woefully underused.
I hold out hope she’ll show up in the 2012 series, or at least someone inspired by her.
The second dinosaur in power armor design (click here to check out Rampager Rex). He continues the theme of being a Battle Beast homage.
Titanic Triceratops is mostly finished. I’m open for suggestions based on these renders. Once he’s done and tested, I’ve got three other ceratopsians to join him.
Once completed, TT will be available through my shapeways store. First with zero markup as a beta, then at normal cost once tested.
