One of my favourite toy franchises as a kid was the Masters of the Universe, and my favourite toys has to be the He-Man and Battle Cat figures. I reccomend you check out the show The Toys That Made Us – Ep 3.
I had since lost my MOTU Toys growing up. The toyline can still purchase those figurines in mint condition today on auction sites (for a hefty price), but I was looking for something new, fresh and modern.
So I was pretty so stoked when I found a guy on Facebook that sold me a collection of 3D Models of MOTU to print, namely: Battle cat, He-Man, Skelletor and She-Ra.
The head was easy to print. I printed it at 100 micorons since I wanted it to have the highest quality of the model. All the parts took just over 7 days to print …that’s right about 168 hours. (Yeah 3D Printing takes a lot of patience)
The only probel was the teeth, it was very thin, and removing the supports (Which there was a lot of) meant breaking 1 or 2 of the 4 long teeth. Lucklily I have a very talented girlfriend that used woodfiller,sanding paper and glue to make it perfect again. (FYI She also did the fine paintword such as the mouth,eyes and teeth)
