This is gonna be a really slow project, and I'm an impatient guy so I'll just make a thread about it so I can balance out my time as well as make sure I actually finish.

I'm working on a mindchamber figure. Once I'm done it should hopefully be able to stand on its own, and even pose using ball joints. I also plan to add LEDs for the eyes, chest and hands.

I got a long road ahead but I think Im off to a decent start.

It looks alil wobby now, but once I bake the pieces I will be able to use a drill to carve and sand parts straight. I Also plan to get washers and small bolts for the finer details.

ehh.. wish me luck.

Nice. Can't wait!

Response to Building MindChamber 2008-02-15 19:14:24


Yup, looks like you have a good start there, alright.
What color(s) are you thinking for it (for the surface & the LEDs)?


Sure, we all share one thing. We will all die sooner or later. Thank god.

thanks he will have slashes of blue, a really dark navy blue. yeah LEDs for the light and chest

and red for the hands.

most the of the other parts will be black with a gunmetal brushover.

Im assuming with all the stuff already on my plate he should be done by summer.

Response to Building MindChamber 2008-02-15 19:27:30


That looks amazing. Good luck with this project man, thats gonna be one unique figure. Keep us posted :)

Response to Building MindChamber 2008-02-15 19:30:16


Summer, wow. Still a good start. If the figure is as good as you describe it, Id say NG has found a new product to market: The offical Mindchamber Figurine! Awesome. Well, as said previously, good luck in this, hope nothing goes wrong!

Nice. I used to do a lot of sculpting and all, but then I mostly stopped. Drawing is easier.

MC, you should look in to Super Sculpey FIRM Gray. I had a period of intense sculpting interest myself and started frequenting a forum, http://www.shiflettbrothers.com/forum/in dex.cfm, those guys make some stellar stuff.

Anyways, point in case, the reason you should use gray clay is because it catches/shows imperfections in the clay a lot better then the pink stuff, because the pink stuff tends to catch light more.

Also, if you want to smooth stuff, what you do is get a bit of rubbing alcohol, and use a paintbrush or something. The alcohol will smooth the clay. Only use a little though or it will get over saturated.

I'm sure you're more than capable though, just some stuff I learned along the way.

they use a firmer clay which I might switch to. but for now this is what Ive been accustomed to.

once its hard its sands down really sharp.

Wowzers! That looks cool! So what are your reasons for making this? Money or Just for the hell of it?


This where I'd put something clever in. Instead I'm going to comment on how I should have made a comment about where the something clever should be inserted...

I'm kinda making him for fun, but mainly. for reference. I plan to make an episodic flash based on mindchamber, and it helps to have a model to look at when I draw him.

these guys are beyond awesome. orginally I was gonna save up and ask them to do the model for me.

but I decided that even if mine comes out lopsided I would be prouder if I made it myself first, or at least try too.

but yeah, those dudes are a total inspiration.

Response to Building MindChamber 2008-02-16 11:31:58


So would this be considered an "action-figure" or just a "model with some articulation"?

I'd love to see an action figure of your character. In your blue prints, how many points of articulation are you planning for? Would they only be jointed, like just having an arm go up and down, or would you have like a base setup...? I mean, for example, would your model be able to twist left or right from the hips?

Most advanced action figures have about 18 points of articulation I believe. You going to go all out or just start with some basic points of articulation (arms, legs, head)?
