Figuarts/Figma Scaled 3D Printed Sharon Apple Virturoid

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, don't know how much of an interest there'd be in here but I thought i'd post it up anyway just in case -

I recently finished up a 3D modeling project to make a Sharon Apple Virturoid that would be in scale with Bandai's figuarts figures (Sheryl Nome, Freyja, etc...), since I figured they'd never make one themselves (after all, she's "just a box"). It's a fun little display piece that can sit with figuarts figures or be a part of a Macross Plus display. If anyone wants one I've got it up on my Shapeways store.

(If this is the wrong place to put this I'll move it, wasn't sure if the scratchbuild or sales section was more appropriate since I'm not selling any of these directly. I'm not looking to make mad $$ on these things, just wanted to share the fruits of my labors :) )

That looks great,  I nearly made a Pc case the same as Sharon a few years ago.

I always thought a Pittie Cola machine would be cool.

That's a nice idea and that scale really brings her details up.

I always wanted to make a fully detailed and case-opening Sharon in 1/6 scale but couldn’t justify it because of the lack of macros figures at this scale...

I dunno, I feel like my Alexa is just a few rogue upgrades from locking my doors and cooking me in the night with my thermostat.

We are all one step away from it all getting way to much like eaither the matrix or mega zone 23. AI idols are only round the corner.

I don't really know the scale range of Figma/Figuarts figures. How tall are they on average, and how tall is this?

Figmas are technically "non-scale" but they're roughly in the 1:12 size range (so around 5-6" tall). Sharon here is just shy of 2.5" tall.
