Hasbro & Shapeways Enable 3D Printing Fan Art with SuperFanArt

http://www.shapeways.com/blog/archives/16759-hasbro-shapeways-enable-3d-printing-fan-art-with-superfanart.html

Hasbro is starting with the the Little Poney. Next could be GI Joe, Transformers, etc. Imagine creating legally your own pieces, vehicles or figs with Hasbro blessing. Not sure how it will work... do you have to make your own design? Do people at Shapeways can provide expertise, support and/or advice?

What do you think?

Customs / Crimson Stinger jeep (LBC)
« on: November 20, 2014, 09:20:40 PM »
I'm not the first one doing this, but it took me a while to find the good parts:
















Making my Black and Crimson Stinger jeep, what I used:
  • Funskool upper body (red racing jeep)
  • 1998 Rattler wheels, top, doors and front bumper for the Black look
  • 1984 Stinger missile rack (because the 1998 missile rack pin is too large to fit the Funskool jeep body)
  • No paint :-)

What do you think?

General Joe Talk / GI Joe poster on Kickstarter
« on: August 22, 2014, 07:09:43 AM »
Hey guys,

I saw this on Kickstarter...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/791497728/3djoes-posters-featuring-beautiful-figure-and-vehi/posts/957391

Looks cool!  With barely nothing new on the shelves from Hasbro, anything that can be made to keep the brand alive is a good news to me.

General Joe Talk / What is the future for o-ring collectors?
« on: May 31, 2014, 04:18:03 PM »
We can see it on every GI Joe boards, there is less and less activities these days. From one side, Hasbro is not helping by not providing toys that people want/like and suppliers (like TRU) are not ordering enough (like for Kre-o). I'm an o-ring collector and never jump into the 25th line/Modern era except for vehicles. So, I feel a little bit ignored.

Few o-rings initiatives were interesting:

1- SK Omega: Original, futurist and o-ring characters.  This line was also including (large) vehicles. But this project never showed up (http://www.joecanuck.com/jc/index.php?topic=4344.0).

2- OSC project was supposed to make original o-ring characters and filling some hole in the GI joe toy line (shooter, Pythona, etc.), but someone stole the money... leaving the supporters with empty hands (http://arah-old-school.forumsmotion.com/).

3- Legion XIV Productions (by Falcone) made few years ago some great o-ring female trooper. While pretty well done, these were 4 inches high, not 3.75... so they were not made for the original o-ring collector (https://www.facebook.com/LegionXivProductions)

4- The.Black.Major "custom": Made a lot of troopers, Crimson guard, BAT and now female trooper with colour variations (Blue, White, Black, Urban camo, Crimson, etc.). There were sometimes few issues like smaller foot hole or smaller back hole, but the fans jump on these. Selling from $7 to $15 by the Black Major, on the second hand market they were going as high as $30. These are half legit. While the characters use the same Hasbro mold (and logo), some variation were totally original (colours never made by Hasbro for these mold) (http://www.ebay.ca/sch/the_black_major/m.html).


So, most of these initiatives were fans initiatives. What's the future for o-ring collectors? The Club and Hasbro are no more interested by o-ring... with website like kickstarter, are the fans will take the lead this time?

If there were more o-ring offers (convention exclusive, club exclusive, fans initiative, etc.), would you be more "board" active, more "collector" enthusiast, still a buyer?

General Joe Talk / What makes a convention figure?
« on: April 03, 2014, 08:46:42 PM »
As seen on YoJoe:

Quote
I'll chime in on this.
 
 The CanJoeCon figures are as official as any of the pre-factory produced figures starting in the late 90s. That is to say, as legitimate as the DeSimone figures.
 
 The CanJoeCon figures had Hasbro Canada endorsement as mass assembled customs. These were not dedicated or shared production figures, nor were they made in a factory. They are, for all intents and purposes, customs.
 
 Really, super-duper customs, but customs. Legit customs. But customs.
 
 So, they will go into the convention figure section OR the international section as what they are, right along side the DeSimone figures. They're Canadian so...likely the international archives.
 
 They're official, but with an asterisk.
