I’m a big enough geek to dress up as a Jedi at the premier of StarWars III and have anime costumes in my closet, but not a big enough geek to play Klingon Boggle. I love HeroScape and my friend Bill is trying to pull me into D&D. I don’t think it will take much… I also enjoy playing LARP (Live Action Role Playing) where we run around in the woods dressed like RenFaire rejects and smack the crap out of each other with padded weapons. I’m geek enough to admit that I do LARP, but not enough to have ever done “lightning bolt! lightning bolt! lightning bolt!” Hmmn… I guess I’m the Metro sexual equivalent of a geek… That realization is kind of scary…

Aside from all that I’m currently working for Advance Digital as a Front End Developer on sites like nj.com, mlive.com, nola.com, etc. I’m one of those rare animals that can design as well as code so that means I never have an empty plate and I often put in too many hours… I also have some pretty decent Google-Fu so I can get done most things that they need from me.

I have a love of digital art, in particular "painting" with photoshop as well as paper craft so I often try to merge the two.

Hi! :wave:

Righto, big question: If you please, where and when will you have the minibots for sale?
:worship: :worship: :worship:
I remember you were working on the little blue and white one, and a few companions, but haven't seen them for sale.
Please (PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE  :worship: ) do let me know if it will be this year, or if they are exclusives for a convention. They look awesome and I'd love to have them in my collection :)

Stay awesome!
:wave:

The ones I was working on last year were "ActionFormers" and they had really high detail, light piping, and proper proportions crammed into a 2" minifigure.  Unfortunately I was never able to get the joints to a point where I was comfortable releasing the sets publicly :(

Since I was never able to get them to work I shelved the project.  That said though, I did release the white/blue one (Disposal aka Tailgate) at a blown up size of 3.5" on my shop and you can find him here: www.shapeways.com/model/131574…

I didn't optimize the others for the larger size though since Hasbro is releasing a most excellent Legends Swerve and X-Transbots is doing a really great Pipes figure.

Still, I'm now working on the "MiniBots" line of figures that are originally based off of Kreon parts and tend to have a slightly more SD/Chibi looking quality. (I include smaller heads that look more proportional too)
The MiniBots actually end up being better figures than the ActionFormers were with much better joints and better articulation.  No light piping though, but I think that's a small sacrifice. ^__^

The first MiniBot was LoadBearer (aka Minimus Ambus) and he is publicly available on the shop along w/ his upgrade armor Uber Magnum: www.shapeways.com/shops/wulong…

I've taken the models I made for the ActionFormers and grafted their details onto the new MiniBot bodies and am now in the process of testing MiniBots of Disposal (Tailgate) and Explorer (Pipes) and am working on porting over Bartender (Swerve).  If you check out my Facebook page I give regular updates of the different models I'm working on.  I've also got a Note on there w/ links to all the MiniBots in the shop (even the secret still in testing ones ;) )
