Here's how it works... Once every other month or so, I'll pick five figures/vehicles/props/etc. that I think will be challenging, but I'm fairly confident I can pull off. Then, all patrons who have donated that month will get one vote for each $ donated to decide which one I work on next. As of right now, I have exactly one patron, which means one guy is going to get to choose the next figure all on his own, if nobody else jumps in!
Here are the five choices you'll have to vote on for May:
- Yeti Mk. II from The Web of Fear. While it seems simple now that I've finished the Mk. I, 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. Will come with a removable control sphere and web gun accessory.
- Kroton from The Krotons. Another build that's time consuming, but definitely possible. Will come with a spinning head and oversized acid gun accessory.
- The Wirrn from Ark in Space. This will be a very difficult build but I've got a wonderful starter model designed by Hastran (the same guy who designed the Servo Robot) that has the proportions right but lots of little spindly bits that are going to take some creative tinkering to turn into something that's printable quality. The finished version will also double as a finger puppet!
- Mandrel from Nightmare of Eden. With the fur and scale textures I used on the Taran Wood Beast, I'm pretty sure I can pull this one off. I may also make it a light-up figure with glowing green eyes, if I can figure out a way to insert a light brick into the head.
- Terileptil Android from The Visitation. I'm not even sure why I'm putting this on here, since it's a stupidly complex design with a ton of fiddly detail work. Just know that if you decide to vote for this one, you are a terrible monster who only wants to see me suffer. I *may* possibly try to give this one a removable "Death" mask and cloak, but given the stiff nature of filament, it may not be possible, even with TPU.
