JPG Productions 1/12 Probe Droid
« on: January 09, 2018, 06:36:34 am »
Been talking with Jimi at JPG and had permission to show these photos of his next kit.

1/12 Probe Droid from Star Wars Ep V Empire Strikes Back.  Resin kit will come with a Hoth inspired base/stand.





Likely to be about $50 and available end Feb/early March once initial run of 1/350 SW Medical Frigates has been cast.

If you are in the UK or Europe I am talking with Jimi about adding these to my growing inventory of his kits on my webstore.

Interesting! The 1:12 scale would make it match Bandai's 1:12 figures I am thinking.

Yes Decoman, it is scaled to go with the Bandai 1/12 range along with the Gonk and Chopper kits that JPG already produce.

Hi Iain,

Not sure what happened there but most of the thread disappeared when I posted it!

Anyway here are a few picks of the masters by Nicholas Sagan for the kit which has over 100 3D printed parts then all resin cast, 36" long, 7" wide and 15" high, designed to take a 1/2" rod or tube for the weight which is 8lb (3.6kg).  Cost is $650 plus shipping.











There are a lot more photos on JPG's Facebook page search JPG Productions or the link below if it works!

Looks amazing Warren.

Just a wee bit out of my price range though. :(

That looks like a very sweet kit....   if it was half the price I would put it in the stash.

Where's the little Falcon?
Just think of what my life might be.....   In a world like I have seen!

Imwolf, the Bandai Box Series Falcon is the right size for this.

I have to check, but I am sure I've seen a 1:350 scale Milennium Falcon kit from Bandai that would complement this medical frigate. :)

In any case I am referring to the following kit below. These are non-scale, but given that they are half the size of the 1:144 Millennium Falcon, it seems this would be 1:350 scale.

That is the 1/350 scale Falcon from Bandai.
