Alienoid from King of Tokyo. Designed to replace the cardboard cutout that comes with the game. Some assembly required.
Since the transparent bubble helmet that Alienoid is supposed to have does not lend itself well to printing, I decided Alienoid doesn't need one. It can breathe oxygen just fine.
There are three options for printing:
- SINGLE - The full model in a single file. This may be very tricky to print.
- FULL (+COMMON) - The model sliced in to few pieces, easier to print, but must be assembled afterwards
- FLAT (+COMMON) - These files are the easiest to print, as overhangs have been minimized, but there's a lot of assembly to do after printing.
If you print the FULL or the FLAT files, you'll need the COMMON files as well.
As another option, there is a variant file for the "chest-top" part. In "alienoid-chest-top-with-helmet.stl" the Alienoid has a kind of a half-helmet, on which you could possibly glue half a transparent plastic sphere to act as a visor. I haven't tried printing this version, since I haven't been able to find a source for the visor. Leave a comment if you print it!
A few of the parts were sourced from other people's work: The left fist is remixed from Tardis Transformer V2 by Ellindsey, and the ray gun was created with MikeNeame's Customizable Ray Gun. The claws are repurposed T-Rex teeth from sk8nmike's scanned T-rex model.
The parts need to be glued together. I printed my parts in ABS, and used ABS slurry to glue the parts together.
Pay attention to the orientation of the "thigh" parts when gluing them on the "pelvis" part. It's easy enough to glue the legs in a position where the poor Alienoid can't stand on its three legs. The correct orientations are as follows: The left thigh should point forward, the right thigh should point backwards, and the back thigh should point to the left. Once the thighs are solidly glued on, add the shins and adjust their orientation to give Alienoid a stable stance. Take into account that the arms, once attached, will shift the center of gravity forward.
Test fit each part before applying glue; The parts may need minor filing or sanding to fit.
