I’ve wanted to try this on my Holotech Spinosapper’s saws forever, but was afraid of messing up. Then I found a backup. I think I did ok, even though it doesn’t look so hot up close. At least the effect was as cool looking as I had hoped. To add some contrast to the Hammer Rock, I borrowed part of a red clamshell cockpit.
For the longest time I wondered if this limited version’s grey matched the weird grey of NJR Hammer Rock. It didn’t help that there were no good pictures anywhere. Well, now I know! The answer: close, but NO. This grey is very neutral, with no weird lavender cast to it.
Another YJ bargain. It’s missing the original rockets, and there was shoulder repair done, but otherwise it’s lookin’ good. Since he’s missing the rockets, I thought I’d see how many other weapons could fit. Turns out a lot of weapons fit, and some even look good!
When I was taking pics of all the possible weapon variations, I also took a few that took advantage of Hammer Rock’s “serving tray”. Somehow I forgot to post most of them, though. The tiny food in pics 1–4 came from a co-worker, and the one in pic 5 is from one of my mom’s Re-Ment sets.
This was a reissue that brought much joy, since the OER Zore and OJR Hammer Rock have always been hard to come by. These are almost the Zore colors, except that the grey bits here actually have a faint tint to them, and the caps and canopy are different. I decided to go buck wild with the panel lining and detailing on this one. I also made a “head light”, like the larger Kongs all have, using a piece of a spare canopy.
So I’m probably the last person on earth to post pics of this guy. I took most of these a month and a half ago, when my special lady was doing some tiny gardening. I also wanted to test the camera on my new
pocket computer phone.
Quick review, because I’m, like, busy and stuff: Nice details (painted parts are done well), but a little fiddly.
