Webdiver Skullrider kitbash

on Thursday, April 26, 2012.

5mm Skullrider thumbnailDiscriminating Acroyears travel on crawling translucent skulls or what I made out of a trashed Takara Webdiver Gradion. This toyhack is one of the most technically insane I've done thus far. That it holds together is a small miracle as it is made up of many unrelated pieces and like all my other hacks uses no screws just 5mm pegs. I started it back last year and put it down. I recently picked it up again and was determined to resolve it.

The process is documented here

Micromaster Microtron Kitbash

5mm microtron thumbnailMicrotron is an iconic Micronauts figure. The assignment was to wrestle something new from something so recognizable. The big question really was: what am I going to do with his curiously placed drill?

The whole story is here. The forum discussion thread is here.

Here is some fresh robot candy for the eye.  In typical Japanese robot fashon, somehow even the least expensive toys manage to capture the soul.  Bring us your beat up, bring us your downtrodden, we will capture you on photos.

The White Bike: Gobots Power Suit Kitbash

on Thursday, March 22, 2012.

5mm white bike thumbnailThe initial idea for this vehicle was a bike that wasn't sleek but purposefully from the junkyard. It would be at home on Junkion. This piece came together rather easily, needing very little work to hold it together. For those who don't know my work I drill 5mm holes and connect them with 5mm pegs, making them Micronauts/Microman compatible.

The process is documented here. The forum discussion thread is here.
