    Default Re: Toys Works - Spiritual Leader (Morpheus)

    Shape looks great! Would like a little more mirror finish like he said.

    I like them, so far. Definitely needs more polishing on the lenses. The mirrored effect is a must.

    Yeah, they appear to be a black mirror finish too as opposed to an actual mirror finish, if that makes sense. But I have no idea what's possible at the scale.

    Yeah I'm not really a fan of the bright silver either. If a mirror finish isn't possible then I'd prefer just a very shiny and polished black.

    Hey, guys. I am going to update the prototypes. My original mirror finish got dulled pretty badly when I did a clear coat, which I wasn't expecting. I shouldn't have posted the photos.

    From what I can tell in the film they truly are a silver mirror finish. However I will do both a silver mirror and gloss black. Side by side photos will follow. Hang tight and let's decide what works best.

    Here are the updated Morpheus glasses prototypes.

    The first version was too dull. These two prototypes are a plain gloss black and a mirrored black. Thoughts? I think mirrored black looks best.

    They both look great, DoggieDoc!

    I'm leaning towards the mirrored black but would be happy with the glossy black as well.

    Thanks! Waiting to hear other opinions.

    And just fyi on pricing these will be cheaper than normal given the production needs. They don't have nearly the fabrication annoyances that the Neo glasses did...oof.

    Both gloss black and mirror black are very similar in terms of production. I may try one more finish but I'm quite happy with both of these. Im not opposed to doing your choice if you prefer one over the other. It's a little more annoying to keep track of but not a huge bother really.

    And don't worry about them falling off. They're so light that they're actually quite resilient. The magnet in this head is crazy weak though but without actual flesh to grip there's not a practical solution outside of magnetic attachment other than wax or tack or whatever.

    Anyway.... I'm thinking these will only be $45 or so. As always I'll come up with some fun little packaging.

    Great price!

    I'm torn on the glasses myself. There's moments in the movie where the glasses look black and where they look mirrored. Many of the close-ups have a character with a black background so they'll be clear in the lens, like the photo Dukefett posted -- odd background in the lenses considering he's outside.

    The only thing that distracts me with the mirrored black is that they look like fisheyes in that straight-on photo. Not sure if that's a result of the camera taking the picture or what. Decisions...

    I might just go with whatever Doggie thinks looks best in hand. I mean, he's studied these enough that I trust his judgment.

    Wow, really love how smooth you got those looking! Personally the black feels truer to the movie to me, and is how I remember them best. Even if that's only because they were mostly reflecting back darkness in those scenes.
