Welcome at FreeTime Toys

Hello everybody and welcome here. This blog will be dedicated to the few toys projects I will do during my free time. You can expect some toys rehab, some design adaptation and some brand new design.

If you are here you probably know my taste for Jumbo Machinder, so most of my projects are related to those big guys. Hope you will enjoy it.

RokuronQ9 Final Model

So, after long hours of adjustments and tweaking, here's the final model of the revised version of Rokuron Q9. I have to say that I'm pretty happy with this version as I've had some frustrations with the first replica like I've explain before.

The first one was a good opportunity to test the technique and see how I can work with that. It actually opened lots of perspectives and ideas so it's cool. But I wanted to have something more close. Like for Garada, trying to capture the soul of the original toy and what is fascinating about it was a good challenge.

There's maybe a few things here and there that I will improve and of course I will have to make all the usual technical modeling before launching any 3D print. And all this will probably wait a bit as it's time to go back on Lenzari and finish that part for him.

So here's the images of the Rokuron. I will probably try some more because it seems that the lens I use distort the one on the side a bit too much, so might have to adjust that. They look a bit weird to me for the moment.


  1. These are great.You work is amazing Mike. What a sight that would be 3 mint Q9s....drool

  2. Hi Mike,
    amazing Q9s...an army of Q9s is a superb sight.
    well i still regret i never buy the 2 headed Q9
    i saw in japan...biggest regret....


  3. Thanks a lot guys. I'm trying to get as close as possible to the original as I'm more and more convince that this is probably the closest thing I will ever be able to get when I see how hard it is to get the real one. For this version I will not make any compromise and send it to the 3D printer only when I'm 100% happy.
    Thanks again for your kind words.



  4. a beautiful job

  5. AWESOME!!! Mike I imagine you are the only person on Earth that has attempted to re-create the Q9, it seems you have done it !!!
    Please email me if and when it is possible to purchase a Q9.
    Best of Luck! Eldorado eldorado666kaiju@yahoo.com

    1. Thanks a lot Eldorado. Well I think that there's other replicas out there, but made using a real one and sold as real one.
      Mine is purely digital build.
      But I'm not planning on selling any, just tempted to upgrade my first replica with another one more accurate but it's not for tomorrow. Still a lot of things to do before.
      Thanks again for your kind words and enthusiasm.
