I have been working with friend of Major Spoilers, and artist extraordinaire, Thomas Perkins (Ben 10, Green Lantern, Beware The Batman) on new merchandise based on the Critical Hit: A Dungeons and Dragons Podcast.  Thomas designed all of the characters for the Critical Hit shirts currently being sold through /Loot, and we want to do something more with those designs.  Fortunately, we know some people who do 3D modeling, and have access to a 3D printer.  Do you see where this is going?

VOTE!

What Critical Hit character do you want turned into a statue first?

    I voted Torq – as it would end up being the biggest, and would go nicely on my desk at work.

    Too bad Rodrigo isn’t an option ;)

    Torq for sure! Would he come with his dog that we dare not speak of?

    I voted Randus. Mainly because Randus is bestus.

    I would probably get the whole crew if they were available, but Randus first, then Torq. Then Thunderdome to decide the rest.

    I voted Randy’s but I’d love to have the whole gang on a bookshelf

        only his mother gets to call him randy.

    I voted for Randus. I just think he has the coolest accoutrements, and I want to see how that would look. Next would probably be a tie between Torq and Ket.

    Now, if one of the choices was a statue of Orem AND Pretty Boy…

    Write in vote for Smith.

      Gotta agree, a statue was promised to Smith (or Smif, if we’re going off Moonhold spelling).

    I voted Torq because he is the least human looking of the bunch, and I think that would translate to a really interesting statue. Also, he has a huge axe! It would be cool to see Randus with his assistant, Ket with Gai, Trelle with her new double bladed weapon, and Orem has to have his fireball nearby!

    Who else would *I* vote for but Randus. Although I’d probably have to like flip a coin or something to see who I would get next.

    I’ll definitely want the whole set, but Randus comes first (and maybe everyone else’s statue can look a bit like him).

    Clearly the Largest, and therefore requiring the most materials… Gotta be Torq

    • January 14, 2014 at 1:33 pm — Reply

      And also most expensive…

      • January 14, 2014 at 2:58 pm — Reply

        Well no one has ever accused Torq, or in this case those people supporting him of proper and careful forward thinking.

  14. January 14, 2014 at 3:24 pm — Reply

    Ket is not only the greatest but by far the most interesting member of the party! Everyone should have at least 3 Ket statues! A Ket statue will make you more attractive to other persons, help you lose weight, make your hair grow back, and give you the power to will the lottery at least 3 times a week. At the core of every Ket statue is a 3 wolf moon t-shirt which imbues it with powers far below that of other statues.

    Sure you could get another statue but you know you would just regret it for the rest of your life.

      Yours now for only 3 easy payments of $19.99 (and the tiniest bit of your soul).
      That being said, I’d totally buy one. XD

    Randus has the most unique design, so he gets my vote. (Love all the characters.)

    While I will admit that Smith and Glaa are my favorites, along with Sir Brinson, of those selected, I choose KET. He would make the best sculpt based upon the Perkins designs.

    Assistant and Gai riding Pretty Boy in full gallop–Pretty Boy is being guided by Poke, who is riding between the horse’s ears. Tell me the story doesn’t just write itself….

    One!?! I have to pick one? You know when WotC wanted to put out the PHB, DMG, and MM staggered over three months, they got alot of blow back. They relented and released all three books at the same time. (I think this happened with the release of 3e in 2000.) Anyway, how can you ask us to chose between the characters of the party? I say release them all as a set and individually! Ugh! Well, I voted Trelle in a classic “Last in, first out.” And of course, “Ladies first”.

    I voted Ket, but would have voted Smith, were he an option.

    I voted Randus, but I want them all and it is difficult to choose one for “first”. Also, would love to see QRD and of course Poke and Assistant.

    I really hope you also consider using the same 3d models to do miniatures. Even if they would only be available through a third party site such as Shapeways, I would love to see this happen.

    1st Randus, 2nd Trelle, 3rd Torq, for me.

  22. January 16, 2014 at 2:54 pm — Reply

    I voted for Orem because I felt like it! I like the idea of releasing them in appearance order.

    • January 16, 2014 at 9:24 pm — Reply

      WOOHOO! One more vote for Orem… I mean One more vote for all of them!

    I voted for Randus but to be clear, I’ll buy all five… MAKE THEM!!!

    Torq would be fabulous to sculpt. Action Man kung-fu grip hands would be perfect for interchangeable axe/funnelcake accessories.

      Draw that or get someone to draw it for you. Add it to your portfolio. Watch companies line up to hire you.

    I cannot even express how mighty my need is to have a little Torq on my desk at work. Hopefully he comes with tiny funnel cake accessories, and a little grey dog he never uses.

    Okay just gonna throw this out there. People want a Rodrigo statue, okay well technically he would be in every one as the platform / base for each figure. My reasoning is that Rodrigo built the world and the characters are the ones playing on it. Just my thoughts, because it would be “interesting” verging on horrifying that when all the critical hit statues are put together the bases form Rodrigos face.

  27. January 18, 2014 at 3:24 pm — Reply

    I know that the plan is to make them larger statues, but have you thought about making miniatures of the characters also/instead? I know I would like to paint some up.

      I comment on future plans at this time. The question stands as is.

    *whispering* give it to Torq…

    First? The leader of course! So Ket (he’s the leader of the group for me).
    But let me be clear: I’d like Ket first, but I definitely want them all!
    And maybe it’s too much to ask, but I’d love to have merchandising of the various NPCs Rodrigo has created. Thony, the Queen Rebellious Daughter, the giant crocodile whose name escapes me, Pretty Boy, I want them all!

    Would be nice to see all of the available at some time from a 3d printing company like shapeways so you could choose the material.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
