Prototype Micro City Set
Wow, over two years since I updated this page. I plan on working on producing the Proto City and Bug-Base sets in earnest this summer. Starting next week my access to the laser cutter will go way up so I can tackle these larger projects. Thanks for your continued interest and patience.
So, back in October 2009, we were putting the final touches on the Proto City designs and getting ready to announce them available to order. And the laser cutter at the Portland Techshop was removed. So the plan was put on hold. Then at the end of the year, the Techshop received a new laser cutter. We had gotten behind with our existing products so we put the Proto City on the back-burner. Now, we were just caught up and were planning to redo the Proto City design to work with the new laser cutter. Then the Techshop closed its door. So we will have to wait again. Hopefully the Techshop will open again or a new venture with access to a laser cutter will start.
In the mean time, we had sent one complete set to Mark C. for all his help and so he could take pictures with all the vintages figures and accessories. I was holding on to these photos for the launch, but just to keep you interested, here they are! (Click on them for a larger view.)
I had to dremel the 5mm pegs on the girders to get them to fit correctly, but now I can try them out for the first time. They fit well as I able to support a hex piece with just two girders (all that I have so far).
