The year is 1926. The continent is ravaged by war. All hope for peace was dashed by a cataclysmic disaster.
The Royal Colossus Corps and their “tin-cans” broke the stalemate on the battlefield. But a year on, struggling to keeping the Boudicca-Class Heavy Siege Colossus supplied and repaired, the War Office issued a request for a new Colossus design.
A smaller, more nimble Colossus was needed. Simpler in design and easier to manufacture, the Infantry Support Colossus Mk.I “Cyclops” is rolling off the factory floor.
Available in three versions:
- The Mechanic – Unpainted and unassembled bare resin cast kit and electronics. For those who want to experience putting it together and painting it to their own taste.
- The Front Line – Fully painted, assembled and weathered. Unique tactical markings and weathering marks for each piece. Photos and videos of the finishing and assembly process will be shared with the collector or publicly.
- The War Hero – Colours and markings can be chosen by the collector. A true one of a kind piece. Photos and videos of the finishing and assembly process will be shared with the collector or publicly, in a live stream, if desired.
Open source hardware for the electronics.
Arduino sketch will be available for download.
I have decided to launch the Kickstarter campaign in November 2016.
Hi, my name is Michael Sng, owner of Machination Studio. I was the former Chief Product Designer for the cult STIKFAS action figure toy and in the last two years, I have made it my personal goal to learn everything I needed to create what I considered to be The Ultimate Toy. I brought it on show at the New York Comic Con 2015, and was invited to share my Dream on the main stage at the TED Conference 2016.
This year, my new goal is to create a product that can be manufactured so I can share my journey with more of you. I will soon be unleashing this new crazy idea on the world.
Codename: Colossus is my brand of mechanized dieselpunk walking tank scale models that are made in limited production runs in polyurethane resin or 3D printing. They are not just beautiful to look at, they can get up and walk on their own six legs.
