013 - War Machine
Status: Untested, may need work.

This is it. The crown jewel of my 3D printed figure collection! WARNING: There is A LOT of assembly required, and almost every piece will have to be printed separately! While still untested, this figure is designed to be fully playable without any bells and whistles. The addition of a simple rubber band will allow the radar dish on top to spin if wound the opposite direction. However, if you don't mind dropping $60 for two sets of GoBrix (available from Think Geek at this link: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/ipns/) you can pimp out your War Machine with full remote control support!!!! A standard set of two motors can be used to add steering. Three motors will give you steering and remote control of the arms. Four motors will allow remote control of steering, the arms, and the radar dish on top!

Here's the latest:

014 - Rutan
Status: Printable on a standard definition printer, but a little lumpy. May still need finishing work.

Like the Keller Machine, this design also incorporates a LED brick. I plan to print it out of semi-transparent glow-in-the-dark filament, and the brick will be completely hidden inside with the light turned on and off by a tentacle! I had to flub the tentacles a little bit. In a perfect world, the outer edge of the figure should look like a sprangly ropy misprint, but there's no way to do that deliberately.

Interesting. I'm *really* curious to see how this one turns out.
Life's too short to engage with chuckleheads.

015 - Hand of Omega
Status: Printable, but needs minor finishing work.

Another LED brick compatible design. I don't expect this one will require much tinkering since the only movable part is the lid. You will need a natural or transparent colored filament to make the fog layer. I'm not 100% sure if the feet (which also turn on the light bricks) will be printable, but you can use Lego axles as well. Ideally, they should also be printed out of transparent filament so you can pretend it's floating.

016 - The 12th Doctor's Guitar
Status: Will ONLY print on a 20 micron printer! Will self-destruct on standard resolution.
3-D Printer template: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/9my9WPJJ3w4

As we bid a fond farewell to Peter Capaldi, I've broken both my rule of "no accessories" and "no modern Who" to make this-- the 12th Doctor's Yamaha SGV 800 guitar.
I do not expect this to print with any level of detail on a standard resolution 3D printer. But, as I just purchased a brand new super-fancy .2 micron resolution printer, I'm curious to see what my new baby can do. If by some miracle it prints, It even has individual strings and a movable .7mm wide whammy bar!

017 - Ogri
Status: TESTED COMPLETE. READY FOR PRINTING.

The last of my light-up brick figures, this Ogri comes in two flavors, a boring solid lump, and one that will light up when you spin the wheel on the base. Assuming it works as intended, I will likely use this technique when the time comes to build my Emperor Dalek, so you can make his lights flash by twisting the top part of the head.

018 - Yeti Mk. I
Status: TESTED COMPLETE. READY FOR PRINTING!

Without a doubt, the most detailed figure I've created so far. The Yeti has movable arms and legs, and a lifting flap in the chest so you can remove the control sphere. It also comes with an optional control sphere pyramid accessory (that you can remove the top sphere from) similar to the one seen in episode 2. Once I get the Mk. I version finalized, I'll go back and make a Mk. II variant as well, with a web gun accessory. While it seems simple, this is actually going to be a pain in the ass, because the face sculpt is completely different, as are the hands, which were the two parts that took me the longest on the Mk. I.

My second round Yeti printing is painted and complete. I think it works better without the visible eyes and slightly greyer fur. So, with a few extra licks of paint I've converted my first printing into a one-off Terrance Dicks Target novelization book cover variant!
Before I get back to work on the War Machine, I am making one final Yeti printing on my HD machine that has a teensy bit more cut away around the arm joints to allow a few extra degrees of rotation and a few extra mm of fur built up around the chest flap hinge that will hopefully make it less prone to popping out when opened.

Here's the revised Alpha Centauri. Everything should be a lot cleaner and more professional looking compared to the old design, which got pretty natty after multiple tweaks and revisions. The new arms should fit smoothly into the body (no more weird brackets left over from the original ball joints), the cape and collar textures are vastly improved, the claws actually line up with the wrists, the eye is closer in proportion to the head of the original costume, and overall, the whole thing just looks loads better. I have no idea if the veins will actually print on a regular resolution printer, but I'm printing the new head now, and they're definitely showing up on my 20 micron machine.

The great eBay sell-off is officially on! Time to reclaim some of my shelf space to make room for the next round of figures.

I'm putting up 25 of my prototype figures for auction! 13 were listed tonight and I'll put the rest up tomorrow when I get home from work. These are the only versions of these figures I will ever sell (and all money earned will be recycled into the development of more free templates), so if you don't have a 3D printer, and like my work, you might want to consider nabbing them. (Though they are all prototypes, meaning there's usually at least one thing I changed on them for the final version) Bidding on most figures start at $15, though there will be a few bargains thrown in.


EDIT: Removed the direct links since we're not supposed to sell stuff on here, however, anyone searching for Doctor Who Custom Figure should be able to find them pretty easily!
