The Light Medallion
Dimensioner @FuzzyDragon Awesome! thank you!
Dimensioner @FuzzyDragon Are these medallions solid or hollow? Also, would it be possible to make them available in more materials--or at least add White Natural or Processed plastic so buyers could then paint them? Thanks

Prop- Everlasting Gobstopper
Dimensioner @KSND I wanted to double check before I ordered this: are the photos of the glossy sandstone or natural? The natural sandstone items I've bought before weren't shiny like that, but the photos are labeled as natural sandstone. Also curious--what's the difference between this one and the one that's not for sale anymore in your store?

Kualsi Nuva
Dimensioner @Red_Star_Forge I got this mask some time ago, and I think it's an excellent Nuva evolution of the original mask. However, I feel like it's a little light weight compared to the official Nuva masks and how your Metru Nuva masks appear. It's lacking in "girth" a bit and isn't quite as deep as the original Kualsi. See picture. I'm not sure if scaling it up a bit would fix it, or maybe if it should be stretched out depth-wise a bit. No matter what, this is just a suggestion for improvement.

Huna Nuva
Dimensioner @Red_Star_Forge You might want to collaborate with the people who worked on your Great Mutuku or Inorganic Iden (other masks I purchased at the same time) to improve its axle. The Iden's axle is pretty much perfect in processed versatile plastic, and the Mutuku fits nice although the axle is a bit long. This mask's axle is pretty spindly and tapers down a bit which makes a for wobbly loose fit. On the customer's end, the solution to this kind of issue has been to layer on some nail polish, but it could also be improved on the designer's end. On the plus side, I really like the aesthetic of this mask and how it blends the noble and great versions! I plan to buy the others in its class if I know their axles will be better--might even buy this one again if someone can tweak it.

[Titan] Kanohi Avohkii
Dimensioner @Onuku You might want to tweak the axle on this one a bit to make it thinner. I ended up cramming it onto a Metru head, with the hopes that the mouth hole might shave down the plastic a bit but what happened instead was the Metru head got warped and now official masks fit in it a bit loose. It's a perfect, enlarged replica of the Avohkii, though, aside from the difference you pointed out, which is neat!

Articulated Mata Foot kit
Dimensioner @meliug_ocan Well, like I said, I've made the sword and I feel it's pretty accurate, as are my handcrafted versions of at least the masks we have high quality images of. And even if we don't know exactly all the components used (seemed to be mostly Bionicle parts existing at that time) or how they were fitted together, we aren't limited by that with 3D modeling. We can make whatever we want. Let me know if you'd like to work together on any of the prototype Inika stuff.
Dimensioner @meliug_ocan I've noticed you design a lot of "vanilla" Bionicle pieces--things that look like they could be official parts or altercations of existing parts. Have you ever considered doing any of the prototype Toa Inika weapons or masks? I've always wanted Hahli's flippers, Matoro's snowboard, or Jaller's sword. I handcrafted the sword and pretty much all of their masks from existing pieces and could provide you with reference pictures. This isn't like a commission or anything; I'm curious if it's something you have considered doing.
Mata Nui's Sword - Movie Edition
Dimensioner @AArami I just received this sword today. It's a neat idea but it needs some work. The blade is a bit long and the axle could be a bit larger around. As it is right now, it will stick in the Glatorian hand if you push it all the way in, but it doesn't stay in the Hero Factory/Bionicle Gen 2 hand. I also think some parts of it could be made to look less blocky and maybe a bit sharper (more like a sword.

Bionicle Articulate Mata Torso (Lower)
Dimensioner @CeeZee Have you had these parts or any of jointed limbs printed? I am curious if the friction between the ball and socket lasts or if it wears out. Seems like frosted ultra detail would be more ideal for parts like these.

Davy Jones's Key
Dimensioner @edrice I've been buying stuff from Shapeways for about two years now, and I just got this key (in stainless steel) yesterday. Most of the other stuff I've bought is Lego pieces. This may be one of my favorite items! The texture isn't quite as smooth as it is in the 3D render--I can still see some of the print layers (can't even really feel them). But the weight and the feel of the item are just so right! As far as I could see, any official movie replicas that are out there are made of plastic or some kind of cast metal--this one feels authentic! And it's a nice price too!

2006 prototype Kanohi Ignika
Dimensioner @meliug_ocan I just received this mask in yellow strong and flexible and frosted ultra detail. It looks very nice in hand but I'm confused about one aspect of the design that I didn't notice in the 3D preview. If it doesn't fit on 2001 Mata heads, why does it use the Mata mouthpiece connection instead of an axle?
Dimensioner @ultimo01 Weird. I'm the one who helped design that other version using that exact gif as a source.
Dimensioner @ultimo01 this one fits both head types https://www.shapeways.com/product/RUXNFLBNK/bionicle-heroes-style-kanohi-ignika?optionId=60801619 and I believe it to me more accurate in some aspects

Toa Hagah Masks Combo Pack
Dimensioner @00dude00 As a follow-up to my last comment, I guess painting the ultra detail worked for you. Would you happen to still know what paints you used for the silver and dark (flat) gold? Also, do you plan on doing your custom staffs and chest armor used in your old models as well?
Dimensioner @00dude00 Oh yeah. That's a good point. I guess I'm not sure on the difference between polished and not polished. I think I've ordered both in one order and I couldn't distinguish different textures or appearances. As for Frosted Ultra Detail: for the price I'm paying, it doesn't feel right to paint stuff in that material--but that's just me. It also doesn't seem like paint would stick to it the same way it does to the porous plastics, but looks like it worked for you. I like the idea of buying everything in one pack since it's cheaper so I don't think you need to add the polished option just for me.
Dimensioner @00dude00 I just followed the BZPower link and now everything makes sense! The inspiration for these is what I though it was, but I didn't know you were the one that designed the originals. Is there a reason they are not available in white strong and flexible polished? That's typically the material I like to buy masks in.
Dimensioner @00dude00 Hey, these look awesome! I recognize where you got the inspiration for them but I also love your take on them! Definitely something I'll be buying soon.
Bionicle Heroes style Kanohi Ignika
Dimensioner @tom_rule95 I just noticed that it looked you have some of my pics associated with the wrong material. The transparent one is acrylic not frosted ultra detail. Or maybe that's just a default setting and Shapeways is being silly
Dimensioner @tom_rule95 Is there a chance you could make this available in polished yellow again? I was considering purchasing another one to actually spray paint gold sometime soon and I'm thinking it will work better if I start with a base plastic that's already close-ish to my target. I have my current yellow one fitted on one of my favorite sets (2001 Tahu) right next to my computer so I can look at it and admire it all the time! You did an EXCELLENT job on it, and I see you've been working on masks for other people that look pretty interesting as well. Keep up the great work!

Kanohi Mask of Healing
Dimensioner @tom_rule95 more or less my finished painted product. It could maybe use a bit more fine detailing but it can be hard to paint with a cat sitting on your lap!
Dimensioner @tom_rule95 hey, I ended up doing both (used silver but also got creative)! I'm not quite done painting but I'll post a picture when I am.
Dimensioner @tom_rule95 Did the creator of this one say what color(s) it's supposed to be? I purchased it because I always like seeing your designs, but I'm not sure what color to paint it.
Completed Mask Of Time For Gen One
Dimensioner @Mate397 the existing G1 Vahi would not be compatible with this model, as it uses the 2001/2002 mask to head connector instead of the axle piece seen here and used from 2003 to 2009

Dimensioner @tom_rule95 My god. I never expected to see this one! Actually, maybe the picture I'm thinking of also had the masks of light and shadow mixed in. Still: definitely going to buy this! Are you available to take another commission?
Mask Of Ultimate Power Titan Scale
Dimensioner @thetacigma Based on what I've seen in the past (and it looks to be the same for this mask), I'd say this is Citadel's "Auric Gold" paint.
Dimensioner @AArami No, that means it's a prototype piece, not that it's fake. That's what they've done a lot in the past: model a new piece, and 3D print it before deciding whether to make molds to mass produce it.

Dimensioner @Atreides42 What is the difference between this Nuva cube and the other two that were on here before it, as far as you know? It's the cheapest one but I was wondering why, considering they're all the same size.
Mask Adapter - Round Hole (no ejection feature)
Dimensioner @Leewan Which type of material would you recommend for this? Is the connection a snug fit with strong and flexible plastics? I was thinking I ought to try it in metallic plastic.

Mask Of Conjuring
Dimensioner @tom_rule95 You might consider thickening the walls on this a little bit. I don't know if the person who had it commissioned has commented on it at all; I ordered one in black and it came yesterday. It's really cool, but the back edges of it are a bit too thin for my comfort. I'm surprised it didn't get rejected by the printers but maybe it would just be an actual problem if polished plastic was an option. Besides that, it's a great design and it looks pretty much just like the source image!

Kanohi Mask of Avidity
Dimensioner I'm curious to know what the origin or inspiration for this mask is. It looks familiar but I just can't place it; the best i can come up with is it kind of looks like Breez's helmet from Hero Factory combined with the Rocketeer's helmet, and maybe something else.

Proportional Millennium Puzzle - Yu-Gi-Oh!
Dimensioner @vaguelygenius Thanks for the speedy response. I'd already looked at all your stuff before and I was somehow forgetting that this model is larger than life. I've been after life size replicas of these ever since I got into the show and your stuff is pretty much the only decent models I've come across! I don't know which to buy first.
