That Sonic Fin looks very oversized. Looks like the figure would have trouble holding it, lr keeping balanced when holding it.

Is dino blue shield not on site?
Still working on that one. It looks like a simple design but it's so organic a shape that it's time consuming. Though I am almost done. The handle is almost there and then it's ready for evaluation.. DT Yellows are pretty close too. But I'm weary on that one because I do not know what kind of hands she will have. I got lucky with Zeo Pink/Yellow.

Yeah the Sonic Fin is longer then it should be. So here's the core problem. Ninjastorm blue is proportionally wrong. The main body of it should be as big as the helmet but then she has these tiny little hands and skinny arms.. This then opens up issues where all that detail doesn't show up if I scale it down. The ninjastorm figures I think in general have the weakest arms but they have these larger weapons built around a center mass.

Yeah generally I need to use both arms to hold that thing. The hands are just so terrible. With a little more tweaking I could probably adjust it but I've grown to hate the Ninjastorm blue figure. Maybe I'll toss a tweaked one in with the Samurai Saber. Now the one in the pictures is not exactly the one people would get. I went back and slimmed down the handle. The one in the picture is actually too big and I took a sander to it. After that made adjustments to the model.

For every Lunar Lance and Tonfa you get a Sonic Fin.......

Also in general keeping the female figures balanced is a mess. MMPR Yellow is probably the best because of the free legs but NS Blue is like the epitome of what's wrong with the female figures...........in terms of standing.

Tricera Shield Prototypes. I really wanted to do the bigger shield but that was getting too expensive. Can't tell you how happy I am to be done with this thing. Projecting $14.80 for this guy. I don't get enough orders to justify making molds(and bypassing 3D printing for the consumer) or else these prices really could come down.






Some people wondering about what I use to paint.

Tricera Shield and Ptera Grips







Up now

$15 for the Shield

$4 for the grips. I might have to redo those if DT Yellow hands are different from the Zeo girls.

Finally got around to painting these. Again paint jobs are not for sale. I still get this question.

Me too. I just finished my Psycho Pink custom this weekend and am looking for an extra figure to begin work on Yellow as well.

Anything is possible is all I will say. That is not a definitive yes but also not a no.


Anyway video of the NS and DT accessories.

Wow, these look fantastic. I look forward to arming my rangers.

For anyone who has purchased both the colored plastic and the fine detail versions how much of a difference is there? Either in regards to detailing or paint adhesion.

I'd like to save myself as much tiny paintwork as I can with a good end result. They don't need to be perfect, especially at a distance, but I'd sure like them to look good and last reasonably well.

Hoping for weapons for the Legacy Build A Figure Megazords. Specifically MMPR. Any chance of that happening?

These are renders of the next set of prints. I'm looking for a mid April release.
I still need to finalize forms but I can give a rough estimate of costs with these current designs.

All in the versatile Plastic and Shapeways I think raised their prices in 2019.
I try to do what I can to get the price down but I'm going through a 3rd party who also covers shipping and packaging.

Psycho Yellow : $6 to $6.50
Psycho Pink: $6 to $6.50
Savage Sword: $9 to $10

I was just about to ask about the Psychos and Savage Sword! I'll definitely be ordering a set.

They look so good. I'll force myself to paint them just as good.

These are FDM prints, not the final designs but close enough for form and scale.

EDIT: Sent designs off to the printers so later this month I should see how they come out.

Price will be as follows once that happens

Versatile Plastic: These are the ones I buy and can vouch for. For some of the models I enable the different colors and the fine plastic option. The price also jumps up quite a bit.

Savage Sword: $10
SIlver Silverizer: $11 but you get both
Psycho Pink: $6.50
Psycho Yellow: $6.45
Star Slinger Revised: $6.35

I was honestly expecting a higher price so the 6 and change is a relief. I just cant spend 20 on a single weapon that some are charging.

I think Shapeways must have changed their prices so the cheapest option seems to have a consistent price point at a minimum size.
Bigger things like the Tricera shield are ones I really try to get down but at some point the scale is way too off.
The only reason the powerblaster isn't up is that it would be $30. I might revisit the design when I get a hold of the lightning figures.

Look what just arrived!
I always feel like Frodo when this happens.
They should be available by the end of Friday.




Also this is the fine detailed plastic in case folks want to know the difference.
Higher detail quality but ridgid. So thinner prints should be treated with care. Though the thickness of the Zeo Power Pod Sword isn't in danger of snapping on sight. Still not much flex. Less sanding needed as well.
