Ever wanted an action figure with so many articulation points that it made all other action figures crawl back into their cardstock container?
Well, I present the open source action figure! This model offers hours of fun to assemble with your son or daughter. Imagine the parent that could print out an action figure, you would be a kids hero!!
I made him pretty universal so he could be painted easy enough to be anyone. The head is joined so that maybe other heads could be made in the future. The whole thing is held together with a little super glue and PLA spikes.
I have included the obj incase you wanted to mod him and I also made some breakdowns in stl format for you see how the joints are assembled.
Don’t let the picture fool you, he stands 18 inches tall! Which somehow allows the wife to label it a “doll” because of that fact. I have to quickly correct her with “action figure” … uggg…. anyway.
