Cool Custom Armature

Just finished building this cool custom armature for a customer.  I always love seeing the cool stuff people come up with when using our “build it” page.

If you don’t know where this is, simply click here and select whether you want to build armatures at the 1/6 or 1/12 scale.  The one featured here is 1/12 and uses all ivory plastic pieces.

 

Unveiling new Rider

Really thrilled to unveil what will soon become the future of A9. Introducing the 2017.7 version of Rider. I expect this to be available before the end of the month and for our entire website to change once again.

The hands couldn’t get smaller than this because of the space needed to fit the magnet.  I hope people will be forgiving of the slightly oversized hands.  If not, I may look into a more proportional hand but without a magnet.  Feel free to post your thoughts via comment.

 

Incredible News!

Well, I’m party excited and distraught because of the amount of work I just created for myself.

But it turns out, that as of today I was able to produce an exact replica of Ranger at the 1:12 scale (Rider). Articulated hands, curvy legs, everything (and in the wooden material).   I’ll be showing you a video of this beautiful creation in action soon.  I mean it’s truly amazing to behold. Works even better than the simpler Rider did. I’m partly thrilled  and partly terrified because of what this means.  Because this is likely going to revolutionize our entire product line and probably be the nail in the coffin for our 1/6 scale items.

So I’m not sure exactly what’s going to happen but for sure the 1/6 items will be taken off our website and possibly reserved exclusively for those subscribed as “collectors” or those placing custom orders.

Just keeping you all in the loop as things develop. A9 never ceases to surprise me and how it seems to have a life of its own sometimes.

cheers,

Paul
