    I have been watching episodes on Netflix that has brought back so many childhood memories! I was surprised that there isn't a whole lot of Beetleborg love here

    Other than the pictures in the other thread, I've never seen anything. Beetle Borgs and Power Rangers were my childhood, so it would be amazing to see something come to life!

    I am not triying yet, but if i find a model, will make main of them: blue, green and red. there was a BEETLEBORGS METALLIC also, but i dont realy like their helmets.

    Whole suit? for now its too much for me - i have - "Iron man suit, predator bike, and many helmets" Projects. so, i want just helmets. Lets try together, if Wondersquid will give us some info, or we will find models.
    What Borg suit do you want?

    I'd probably go with the green since he's slightly taller(not that it makes much difference since we can rescale as needed) but I've always been partial to that suit and helmet

    Good news!....3d models of Blue and SHADOWBORG!:

    http://wewvic.deviantart.com/

    Wewvic's also has some great Power Megazords models that could become full suits.

    - (except for parts of his/her really early Dragonzord. That, or I just sucked at hot gluing cardboard. Look like a giant robot chicken when I finally accepted I didnt know what I was doing 1/2 through. Head came out pretty good :p )

    Holy moly poly.... YOU ARE GENIUS! how i didnt see it?! amazing news!!! :thumbsup
    In the meadle of next week i will start to make Blue Helmet. i downloaded models and think, that its almost perfect))) almost that, what i search. if someone want to build it too, i think we need to build main structure, and then make our own mini details. for details we can see pictures and oroginal movie video.

    Well I would love to take credit but wewvic on devianart is the one who made the models (though it did force me to learn how to disessamble models for pepakura finally. I did that much of the dragonzord building right. Still have the head n chest piece lying around for almost 2 years :p)

    Basically drop wewvic a line. He/she made them free to the public for Mikumiku dance fanvids, so wewvic might get a kick out of them becoming physically real.

    Frankly if I get the time I would love to do a Power Rangers/Beetleborg sketch. Crap, Shadowborg was used as a Power Ranger villian "Venjix" in "Forever Red", the 10th anniversary episode where 10 red rangers duke it out with the "Machine Empire", the minions being reused Astralborg suits (with one being the body of either Fireborg or Lightningborg, with the body being the other :p )

    Not only you could have 2 "Shadowborgs" fighting rangers and borgs, a later villian in Power Rangers RPM was also called Venjix (but was a virus like Skynet) You could have the rangers & borgs vs. Venjixes in a 2 vs. 3 fight :p

    Looking sweet. Which leads to the inevitable question: When are the unfolded files released? DUN DUN DUNNNN!!!

    But seriously, take whatever time you need. Hobbys a hobby, and properly unfolded files are better than rushed ones anyway.

    Now we just need files of red & green....

    ive always had mad respect for the propmakers that have built beetleborgs/kamenrider/powerrangers. top quality costumes and the attention to detail! its almost upsetting everything can just be 3D printed nowadays. this is the kind of stuff i want to do with my life.

    Thanks a million! This has been a dream project for me since I was young. Always wanted to be a Beetleborg and now I may be able to!
