Thread: Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries 3D Printed 1/6 Scale Gonk Droid

    Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries 3D Printed 1/6 Scale Gonk Droid




    There's no good 1/6 scale Gonk Droid available besides the vintage styled GG one, so I decided to make my own. The whole figure (basides the wires on the feet) is 3D printed ABS plastic, including the ball jointed hips and ankles. I wrote up a whole thing about the process on my site, but I'll post some highlights below:

    That is really damn cool! I know that some people are complaining about the scoring from 3D printed items, but I don't think you even notice at this scale.
    The paint apps you applied hide the imperfections from the printing process: this little droid looks fantastic!

    Now we'll have to see how well the scoring shows up at a 3.75" scale...

    Thanks! I actually have a process for smoothing over the surfaces on my 3D printed parts that works pretty well. The only problem I ran into here is that the Gonk did not fit in the jar I use, so once I buy a few supplies any more Gonks I make will be just as smooth as my other printed figures. Plus, you are right, all the weathering and abuse helps hide that last little bit of surface imperfection I did not clean up. I'm thinking about making a second body with the multiple tiers like seen in the Prequels to get some more variety, and then maybe I'll pick up GG's jumbo vintage Power Droid to start a whole family

    Incredibly cool. Love me some power droids, and this is the king of them.
