Eljay's new Miru

Right so now that Eljay has revealed the mask, I am free to say that I am the one that made it. I know one person was actually able to guess that I had made Eljay a new mask. So props to @Hafynx for getting that right.


To avoid stealing thunder from the finished product I will upload a WIP image now, and for each day of brickfair. As some of you know I am a 3D model maker. While listening to the podcast 2 months ago, they mentioned 3D printing. At that time I was working on modelling a Kanohi Miru. I mentioned this and that I could print Eljay a new mask in the comments. He got back to me and I went to work.

Here is the the 3D model ready to be printed.


And the and the assembled raw print.

If Toa and Matoran were real, they'd be asking for that mask.

@Cyber-Hand Is there any chance that the models will be made available, possibly via shapeways or whatnot? I've wanted a Miru for myself long before TTV even was a thing, and this thing is the embodiment of that dream. Great work!

It would be very expensive to purchase one of these from shapeways at full scale. The raw print would probably cost as much as Eljay paid me for the complete mask. I am currently making another for myself, and here is that part yo might be interested in. I am planning to make a mold of the mask and create a fiberglass versions using the mold; it should be a bit cheaper than using shapeways. Only problem is the mold it self is quite expensive so enough people need to be interested and willing to pay for one for me to justify making it.If I can get 15 people willing to buy one then I can sell each mask from $75-$100.
The $75 would just be the fiberglass cast, which I will post to you in the mail.
For $90 I will add a Visor and for $100 I will line the mold with gold dust so that the surface of the mask looks and feels like metal.
