This is kind of a colonpipe.com tradition. It started years ago, when I made this and populated it with fake merchandise for my website. Which was amusing for about four seconds. However, I've decided to resurrect the idea, and lo and behold, here they are. I'm working on more, but they take about two hours a piece to render because of the plastic bubble and my ancient computer, so bear with me.
The idea was inspired by this stuff, which is unbelievably cool (if somewhat kitsch).
These are standard figures of...standard people. No accessories, no special modelling, no major changes to the backing cards. There're two figure bodies, make and female. As of the moment, no changes are made to either of these figures to make these characters.
This is me.
This is Miek, from here. He's based on the basic figure with a pretty cool texture map, as they go.
This is Dan, from here. Also based on the original standard figure, but with a less successful texture due to his photo not being a decent front-on shot. Such is life. Possible "Dan with Goth Trenchcoat" figure coming soon.
This is Chris, from here. Standard figure again. Semi-decent texture.
This is Kait, my first attempt at a female figure. This will be superseded shortly, as the dimensions don't look quite right from an isometric angle. Or...something. Also, hair is required. I remember modelling hair being fucking difficult last time I made these things.
This is Sean from here.
These are "special edition" figures that include some kind of modification, be it a hat, a coat, or whatever. Also, this category includes celebrities and in-joke related characters, like Sting. These figures have more elaborate cards.
This is Miek with the coat his sister made (complete with red stitching) and a gnome hat. As you do.
Glenn Bresnahan of Boston University. The hat is lathed and distorted.
Sting naked in the desert. Penis was not modelled.
This category is for figures that'll get me sued, arrested, or proclaimed some kind of hero.
This is Yahtzee from here. His texturing went a little awry on the head, resulting in what appears to be a 1930s pilot's helmet. I kind of like it, so I think I'll leave it there. Note reoccurance of Miek's sister's coat, this time disguised as a trenchcoat.
