    MotUC Custom Man-E-Faces Staff

    Hey folks,

    I always liked the idea from the 200X cartoon that MEF's weapon has the ability to transform itself to match his current mode (at least I think I remember his pistol transforming into the mace in one episode). IMO his pistol matches the robotform best and the mace I designed some time ago suits the monster form quite well. But I thought that he was lacking a good weapon for his human form. In one episode of the 200X cartoon you can see MEF using a staff which I thought would be quite a cool additional weapon for him.



    Unfortunately you can only see it in a very short moment and they show only the middle of the staff so I had to design the rest of it by myself. I tried to use some elements from my custom mace and his pistol to make a complete staff. I am really happy to have a complete set of weapons for MEF now . So here it is:













    Let me know what you think

    Yes, I loved that idea in the 200X cartoon right away
    And your staff is an AWESOME addition to that concept! Love that mace aswell.
    Weiter so!

    BTW any chance you're selling copies?

    The staff is really good! Good realization.
    I really like also the mace, but in Man-e-Faces's hands the staff is simply perfect!
    How did you do the accessories?

    Thanks to all of you .

    @orsogranito: I created the staff and mace a 3D modelling and had them produced as 3D prints by a company named shapeways (www.shapeways.com). In this thread you can see the 3D images of many of my creation. They come all white and I painted them using citadel colors.

    @Dragonblaster, mick4metal and JoeyCruel: No problem, in the marketplace forum I have a thread where you can find the link to my shapeways shop, where you can order all of my custom weapons. But you can also just write me a PM if you want me to paint them for you and send them to you afterwards.

    I was looking at making a purchase of your weapons from Shapeways, but I noticed the new staff doesn't come up as available in white smooth polished. Is that a glitch, or is not available in that style?

    You are right. It seems shapeways is not able to produce the staff in the polished material. I wasn't able to choose this material, too. So the staff on the pictures you see is the unpolished material. I think this is an issue of the geometry of the model. It is not the first time that shapeways did not give the polished material as an option. But as far as I know there is no possibility to change this without completely altering the model.

    But I made the experience that two or three coats of paint make a nice surface on the unpolished weapons. Actually the staff on the pics has only one coat of paint.

    I love the new weapons- they look great with Man-E! What kind of paint would you recommend for these? I often have trouble with paint chipping off.

    Also, I pimped your weapons on the 'Bring Your Man-e-Faces to Work' Day Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/manefacesday

    Thanks for sharing my weapons!!! That's really appreciated! I use citadel colors and a stain varnish for the weapons and it is really important to give the weapon one or two weeks to dry.

    I have been wanting a mace for MEF for some time. after I seen it as a custom of yours i just had to have it!
    last week I seen the staff & I just had to buy that too.
    well I bought them & they are on there way. But I was planning on equipping Dekker with the mace & staff. I'll paint the mace blue. the staff will be orange. I feel Dekker needs something that is more unique than M@A technomace.
