Custom CRADEL – Jet Vehicon [little roller]

Posted by on July 30, 2013

I know it’s been quite a while since I worked with paper.. in fact, it’s been nearly a year to the day that I released a paper toy. This seems like it would be such an easy thing and I’m surprised it took me this long to get to it. It ended up being a bit harder than I thought but not as bad as creating a new one from scratch. So I guess you’d call this a “remold” as opposed to a “repaint” if it were a plastic toy.

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and I’m trying a new way of presenting the instructions.  Let me know what you think in the comments (or the google doc comments, that’s cool too).

Showing off the front and the back.. and the difference in my two printers...

When I first saw these guys in Transformers Prime I was pretty impressed, they looked like something out of Batman’s bag of tricks.  Then when the Elite ones in silver/chrome came on the scene.. well, I was blown away.  They didn’t fight any harder and didn’t seem to be any tougher though.. just a different color and still went down in a shot or two but they sure did look good. 😀

I’ve made a few changes to the Vehicon Stat card as well if you’re using these guys in game.  They are a lot faster than anything on the board and also have the ability to attack while transformed but at a cost of doing less damage and having lighter armor.  I hope it balances out, I need to play test them.. They also get the same bonuses that the ground based Vehicons get by being close to each other.  So all Vehicons have synergy whether they be land, air, or elete. ^__^

Hopefully this will make things tough on the good guys XD

2 Jets so far and 3 cars.  I'll need to fix that when I get more printer ink.

My latest shapeways project is moving along, it’s a line of non-transforming action figures based off of Transformer characters.  Much like the Action Masters but smaller and more articulated.. and with light piping.  Response to them is good.  Not ready for public release yet but if your interested check out my Facebook page.  All of my current models have reached a point where they need to be test printed again so I’m saving up my money till I can afford another wave of testing.  I’ve put out a call for testers but I’m not getting any bites :/  I think folks are wary after the last round failed and they were left holding some light pipe eyes and no figure.   I can’t say I blame them.

Here's all the vehicons I have so far

So now I’m taking a little break from the plastic world to work in the paper one again.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for different characters from Transformers and I’ve even mostly finished up a design for Soundwave on paper.  But what I really want to work on is some of the Jeagers from Pacific Rim.  What would be more perfect in the standalone game of Little Roller, fighting against Kaiju bent on destroying your city than a chibi Gypsy Danger? 😀

I really need to get a move-on too while the movie is still hot and maybe I can get the official FB page or twitter account to retweet me or pass along the link to my work ^__^

I hope you guys enjoy the fruits of my labors and I’d love to see some pics ^__^

    I love all the Transformers Prime paper crafts you design. I’m working on ‘Bee right now. I’ll have to work on these guys soon.
    Do you think you’ll be doing Knock Out soon. As I’d love to do him.
