First time posting my work on here. I started this project in March as a fun test. I decided to do something that I liked and since I grew up playing Megaman and falling in love with the characters I decided to make my own Megaman toy. I randomly found this awesome artist on deviant art who happened to redesign the characters. Instantly I knew I wanted to model these characters. Here is the link to his site. http://ultimatemaverickx.deviantart.com/
While creating Megaman I already had in mind that I was going to model Protoman also. Luckily the designs were very similar. The difference being the waist (Protoman just has a red belt), head, scarf, and shield.
I also made it so the parts could be interchangeable. Both models can have dual buster cannons, dual hands (open or fist). Protoman can have his shield attached to his back and he is supposed to be able to hold the shield, but since Ninjaflex is too flexible for this project the model can’t hold on to the shield to well. I’m hoping Semiflex can help with that problem.
Zbrush, 3DS Max, Netfabb, Simplify 3D ( Best 3D Slicing software I’ve come across).

Material: Ninjaflex, ABS, I will be experimenting with Semiflex next. Ninjaflex is awesome but it’s a little to flexible for this type of design.
Here are images of my printed models. I apologize if I spammed too many pics.
