Finished painting up the first Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries 1/6 scale Star Wars Gonk Droid 3D printed action figure. I decided my 1/6 scale figure collection needed some more droid representation, and the simply, goofy Gonk Droid make an excellent project to start with. Printed in ABS plastic with printed ball joints at the hips and ankles. Metal wire on the feet. Painted with acrylics and Monster Kolor. Read about the development and see a whole spread of photos at http://prometheusrising.net/2013/09/28/star-wars-16-scale-gonk-droid-3d-printed/

Here’s one of those projects that kinda comes out of nowhere and takes over your mind until it’s out. I’ve been on a Star Wars kick lately and decided I wanted some 1/6 scale droids, but the selection is limited and what toys are out there are mostly dumb expensive. Medicom wants $200 for their Astromech droids, which is highway robbery, so I decided to make my own. first up in my quest is the venerable Gonk droid. The nice thing about Gonks is that a number of different styles appear throughout the series, so you can play it a bit loose with the details. They also usually look like they’ve been hit by a bus and left to rot for a few hundred years, so they’ll be fun to paint. I just finished assembling the first one, based on the body style of the Gonk seen in the sandcrawler in A New Hope. I’ll paint this guy up this weekend and put a post on my site about the design and build process, then it’s back to Blockmen. #starwars #toys #actionfigures #anewhope #droid #gonk #gonkdroid #3dprint #3dprinter #3dprinting #hasbro #mecha #robot #robots #powerdroid #astromech
