A Closer Look at Hauke Scheer's Preatobots in "Robots vs Androids"

A photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on


With the Silent Auction for "PREATOBOT.0" coming to a close tomorrow at 12noon Singapore time), let's take another look at this creation from Hauke Scheer, who is known for his MechaWhale collectible [Reviewed Here] - seen chillin' alongside Preatobot in the image above :)

The toyline where this character resides in is called "Robots vs. Androids". The heroic robots are called Preatobots (for which the item up for bid is the one of the first painted samples of), who has since seen some updates to it's design, namely a wider pelvis "which makes it look less like a skeleton" mentioned Hauke, and a "brighter" color scheme. The figure possesses 13 joints - most of them being ball joints that allow for a wide range of motion, and as well each 5.5" tall (14cm) figure come with two heads and an alternate right hand holding a gun.

Check out some images featured below for comparisons, and as well see the figure in articulated action!

"Here are the painted versions of the Robots. I went with a weathered paint since that always works nice for the rough surface of my 3D printed objects." -added Hauke Scheer.
And mind you, PREATOBOT is not just a singular character created, as there is as well a FEMALE version, and their Android Slavers! Seen below are images of the figures, where a robot is captured by the androids when trying to escape a work camp.

"My robot figure now has an android to fight against. The android was the last figure I printed in 2014 and the first paintjob in 2015. Originally I wanted the robot to fight against aliens who enslaved him but I think it is cooler if he is oppressed by a more advanced version of his own kind." - mentioned Hauke Scheer.

I am thoroughly enchanted and impressed by the world building in this concept, much unlike most "Art / Designer Toy(s)" which populate this humble blog which you are reading now (and Bless You for your kind considerations!), and as well it is a wholly creator owned and non-media related product (although with Hauke's MechaWhales animationMechaWhales animation and his plans, this might blow big real quick and nicely too ;p). All of which is not to mention the notion of "articulation" in a 3D-printed product, which frankly fascinates me to no end LOL … And when I mentioned "toyline" near the beginning of this post, it was not meant as just an attempt at word-smithing, you know?

Check out Hauke's online Facebook album for more images and characters from his 3D-printing - for which he had even printed a self-portrait character (an articulated "mini-me"? How awesome is that? hahahaha), and if one day he starts producing "vehicles" and added accessories, you know the word "toyline" was not used in vain :)

"ROBOTS VS ANDROIDS" STORY: "Mankind has abandoned earth but left its robot and android servants behind. The Androids thought of themselves to be the true heirs to humanity since they look more like them. So they enslaved the robots to do their bidding. But some robots feel that all of men's creations should be treated equally and start to rebel against the androids."
