    Quick update to let you know the thread's still active. Sorry for a quiet couple of weeks. I was in a weird mood, and wasn't happy with what I had in motion, so I've been experimenting with some different ideas; taking more time with them. I should have something this week. :)

    Okay, I apologize again for the delay. I did think I'd have these done last week, but discovered I really didn't know what I was getting into despite how simple they appear. I made a few changes, but you can see a rough preview. Ed is in the works! The full-size printables are attached, below.

    I tried to think of something fun and interactive that some of you might like to try. The style was inspired by Scott Pilgrim and River City Ransom. Anyway, I hope you like them! :)

    I often have trouble with colors/brightness shifting a little whenever printing something I've made, so I hope you don't have much problem. If something's way off, let me know, and I'll see what I can do.

    - - - A Few Notes - - -

    You'll want to use thick paper, and remember to be patient/careful, especially when using the hobby knife (the small knife on a Swiss army knife works, too). It's easy to mess up and slip when trying to cut such a small area.

    As well, make sure to put a piece of cardboard underneath where you're cutting, or use a surface you don't care about. Unlike the marks I made in my desk while cutting my first stencil...

    To give you a time estimate, one of these takes me about an hour, or hour and a half to cut and put together. I put on a podcast while working on them.

    That said, I hope you have fun with these. :)

    P.S. When I first thought of this project, I wanted to put one together, first. :)

    O-M-G, you've opened up the collectables can of worms. These could be like POP figures in terms of popularity.
    now start work on gurubani, shark hoodie guy, alan gunderson, pastor will, lily ritter, etc. "Gotta collect 'em all."

  13. Please please...make me some POG slammer tops, @QuarantineRoad. We got a 3D printer recently at the college and I so want to make some slammers now...as I found a couple ladies that still remember POGs and we, unashamedly, have been playing them again during lunch. >.>

    @Cejao: I appreciate you thinking they'd become that popular. You know I like jumping around to different projects to keep things (and myself) from getting burned out, but if there's continued interest, maybe I can make new ones here and there like the cards. :)

    @SwissArmyKnife: Haha, though I never played it, I've thought several times about making some POGs to go with my retro stuff. It's cool to hear you and your friends got new life out of it. As for a slammer, I'll see what I can do. :)

    My big thing as a kid was playing Marbles, and collecting other kids "shooter" marbles as my prize for winning. I would only play for keeps. I have quite a large bag of marbles in storage. :D
     
  16. Similarly, I have a Pog cyclinder of confiscated Pogs from the golden days. Random trivia of the day...you could chip a slammer purposely to get better results in matches. We worked out the science in it back in elementary school...chipping a cheap slammer on the curb until it hit just right to flip the most pogs at once.

  19. @QuarantineRoad Do you still take requests? There's a design I'd love to have on a t-shirt and/or coffee mug if possible.
