3D-printable Mask of Ultimate Power

Recommended Posts

Yes, you read that right. Mask of Ultimate Power.

TLG's way of ending BIONICLE without releasing the MoUP felt wrong, so I decided to fix that. Consider this my way of giving BIONICLE a proper send-off.

This looks absolutely amazing, but I would like to know how well it fits on the head before I try to order a couple (black and gold if that second ones an option otherwise I have spray paint).

 

Do you have any plans to make the g2 mask of time?  I think that is the only other thing we are missing.

Thank you so much.

Thank you so much.

Eyy, thanks! I don't think shapeways offers golden models (unless it's actual 14k gold) so you'll probs have to spraypaint. I'd recommend getting the one you plan to modify in white, since that's the cheapest option.

 

Honestly I completely forgot the mask of time made a canon appearance in G2, so I was planning to do a completely custom version based off the other legendary G2 masks. I might whip up a model of the canon version as well sometime soon.

Sounds good, thanks.

 

tourmalinex is also making the MOUP, but isn't making a version with a g2 connection because he says the material isn't flexible enough for the connection.  Have you encountered this problem with your mask?

It is flexible however there is an issue with the pieces that clip on when trying to make a gen 2 masks and testing it, without reinforcing the clip on parts they might crack and reinforcing it too much might also make it crack. I also just fond this a working clip system , so it seems possible to make them. 


If your clip system works I would be open to sharing my gen 1 models with you so that they could be converted into gen 2 masks!

I can't really confirm nor deny whether my design works since it has just been released. I'm not expecting a perfect fit right off the bat, but I'm hoping that it'll at least be able to stay on the g2 heads without problems. The "strong and flexible" materials from shapeways are incredibly durable. Only thing I've tested personally is my custom CCBS torso shell, and even though the version I have is a bit of a tight fit, it works fine and hasn't cracked even a bit. I'll probably have to make some adjustments to the mask later on when the first versions have been printed, but for now I'm optimistic.

Pretty good, Certainly could've used a lot more polygons, but I get that you wanted to put this out there quickly ;)

Ehh, I wouldn't exactly say the model is low-poly. It might appear that way because shapeways tends to simplify models in previews for easier processing (the printing process is done without simplification though). I can't deny the fact I rushed this a bit, but that's mostly since I'm going on a short vacation and wanted to get the mask done before I leave. I've also purposely made the edges as sharp as they are, since they turn out much rounder than the render during the print process, so I figured there was no need to smooth the really sharp ones (like the spikes). Here's a wireframe view if you'd like to look at the polygons on the original file: https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8772/28671137605_6c7085d16a_o.png

 

Thanks though, and I do have plans to release a v2 once I've received feedback from the community about improvements that can be made (and hopefully TLG will give us some better views of the MoUP by then).

Here are some more pictures of the mask I found on tumblr, hope these help for v2.

Many thanks! Any pictures of the mask that people send me are of great help, since that means I have more material to work with, so I truly appreciate all the help!

Turns out the mask of shadows in the video is a fake, they 3d print it themselves.

I don't think lego would make it look like an airplane

I wouldn't necessarily call it a fake, since it's alresdy been used in the JtO videos. Considering it's already been 3D-printed, it's most likely a prototype which would've changed a bit with the set release. The decision to cancel Bionicle didn't come overnight, so that's probably why they decided to use the prototype mask along with a combiner model for the JtO videos.

You, my friend, are a life-saver, and I mean that almost literally.

Any chance of having v2 ready in time for that free shipping deal Shapeways is doing this weekend?
