BOC and VOP 3d printed minifigs

I had a wild bur in my bonnet last weekend and decided the world needed a BOC-mimic minifig. You know, as a mcguffin, treasure, or a fun side quest. After sketching a few ideas down I fired up my 3d modeling program of choice, and hopped to it.

Of course a BOC is not just a BOC without a Vestibule of Patience. Though, in this case, it is more of a metaphorical VOP in respects that people put BOCs on pedestals and would gladly cut each other down for one.

That led to a fat pillar, a thin pillar, and rounding out the set a regular BOC. All printed on my woot sold 3d printer!

A few more angled shots.

Much like the TT Avatar from April - be creative, try something new, and let the world see it.

Quokka believes in you!

In what sense?

Easy.

You’re making me jealous of all the pointless things I could print, but I’m not about to throw money down on an endless pointless thing printer.

:laughing:

Hahaha… well you don’t know the half of it. On my BiL’s recommendation I started dinking with d&d terrain for him to replicate, paint, and use when covid blows out. So there’s that… and bear claws, zenomorphs, 3d terrain maps, etc.

The printer was a good investment even if I am slowing down on using it now a days.

This is flat out incredible. I am in awe.

Thanks! Seems my mini painting skills are slowly returning. Been an age since last doing those in high school.

Which would be the pawn?

Pieces representing “I miss the old Woot” people, or “I’m never shopping at Woot again”?

Your BOC is obviously a Mimic, right? That is great.
Because all of us get excited to possibly get one, then it turns on us about 3 minutes after opening…
It’s the closest thing most of us will get to a childhood Christmas morning experience in our adult lives.

I would like to think there would be two chess sets.

The corporate one where the rooks, knights, and bishops would be woot categories.
Mortimer and Monte would be king and queen, and the woot exclamation would be pawns.

The flip side would be Letters/BOC as king/queen on one side, Woot/Old-Woot king queen on the other.

Back row ideas:

  • Blackish/Agents of shield dvds ,
  • leakfrogs as bishops,
  • Michael Jackson statues
  • ‘contact customer service for returns’
  • price check

Definitely ‘i miss the old woot’ tshirts as pawns.

Hahaha

The xenomorph wasn’t my design, found it on ‘myminifactory’ and just printed/painted it. It was one from back in May to get the swing of layering paints again.

Clearly @davejlives, even though he probably thinks he’d rank higher; he’s just a pawn sent forward to the masses to be sacrificed.

Woot Chess you say?

UPS drivers? BOC? Monkeys? Us users are pawns, of course (maybe computer screens)? WootBot?
T-shirt? Happy Hour (martini glass)?
