On Vous Explique des Trucs #2

We will explain something… accident! We will explaint something! Again! My chair doesn’t go straight… Today, we’ll mainly talk about the pieces of a statue Stocking and preparation before painting I know you’re eager to learn about painting We’ll make episodes about painting I promise. But all in good time. Last time, we talked about Igneel’s jaw rotocasting Today, I have the neck, which is the statue’s biggest part I was stunned when I saw the guys work on it So I shot a video so you could see them too Touch screen, mate! Well, okay… We won’t… Aaah! It works! So first there is the preparation Since we explained last time, I won’t dwell on it But you will see the mould and its countermould Both parts are clearly identified on the video As you can see, they are preparing The magnets’ position inside the mould They place the magnets, they clean the mould So it’s ready They close it These counter-moulds are made in fiberglass They’re hard-wearing The only part that wears off is the silicon mould inside of it They pour resin inside You need an awful lot of it to fill it They close it, and here we go! Let’s speed up the video, it’s too long… Just so you get it right, this weights 30-35 kg, roughly! As you can see they need a lot of round trips To spread the resin all over the mould Now, they’re about to open it We edited out some because it was too long but As you can see you need 6-7 minutes of rotocasting for such a piece The rotocasting is done, they put it away So that the resin can dry and strengthen Now they can open one they did before They’re opening it They peel off the first part of the silicon mould They check if it’s dry You can see inside the mould all the asperities That will keep all the scultpure’s details These are the parts that wear off inside the mould This is why we need so many moulds when producing resin statues Moulds can be used for about 50-60 drawings usually The more details there are, the more often you need to change it You can see Igneel’s neck Check out how each scale stands out perfectly Let’s zoom in See all the protruding parts the skin’s texture is outstanding As you saw, they placed the magnets inside the mould When only one magnet remains to be placed This is when an inversion can occur Then there’s customer service… That’s it, I just wanted to show you this video Which I find very impressive and appealing You need to understand a statue is made of many parts Each part needs a mould I’m gonna show you the space it uses in factory And why it’s so complex to make figures I’m firsty, so I need to drinkf! Impressive, right? 1,5l… 1,5 Broly! Broly’s statue is made of 54 different parts Each of them needs to be moulded, sanded, painted Assembled, adjusted if needed Resin can warp and joint may need to be adjusted All this work to create the final piece you will receive at home Are crucial prior painting Here are all the big parts being stored There are alternative bases Borly’s torsos, Goku’s legs which are in two parts as you can see The space between both legs Does not allow to mould in one part We have to mould them separately and assemble them Clouds, more bases… None of these parts have been prepared yet They’ll go on a table afterwards Once they’re prepared, they’re being stored aside In the shelves you can see Side-by-side. They’re not bulk stored anymore Because they’ve been prepared for painting There are also nice umbrellas… The day we went, it was raining It was a Monday… Here are all the moulds! Those round and ovale shapes are moulds… You can see an alternative base still inside one of them Here is a batch of Broly’s base, out freshly moulded This step is repairing All bubbles and imperfections Everything is ready to be prepared There’s sanding tools Each part is individually sanded to match The model displayed at the end of the line All parts are prepared before In the blue tray, you can see The most delicate parts: hair, belts… All are stored in trays Those have been prepared And you can see all the torsos, ready to be painted All these parts have already been prepared Everything you see here is parts of the base They are still to be sanded The head-to-tail stored bases you can see are ready to be painted Here’s Jihen! Hello Jihen! Here are other fragile parts Goku’s outfit Split in two Stored in blue trays, ready to be painted You have to leave them to rest after sanding Because we sand them with water, you’ll see that in another video To get rid of the dust more easily So they need to dry The resin needs to draw So we have something ready to be painted This video is a hand-made step: sanding of Broly’s front hair Behind you can see Goku’s torso Being stored All these steps are manual, no machines can be used In that step, they will use a scalpel To scrape the mould lines off Or any prouds, so it can be sanded afterwards The sandpaper needs to be soft enough so it won’t leave any traces This is almost the final step One of the most important The joint between Broly and Goku This is the most sensitive step We have Goku in one hand, and Broly in the other one Once two fit, they’ll stick together until your home This is when we place all the small parts Torn part of the outfit, Goku’s hair That fits inside Broly’s hand Both hair and hand are part of the same element Goku is connected to Broly through his hair That’s how it’s hung up Now, painting… we need some yet Goku’s boots The lining is done by hand, without any mask This is the moment to be very careful and thorough This is done in two stages First the upper part of the boot, then the lower part You’re about to see the whole production line Before painting… at least a part of it, because it’s massive We start from the moulding zone up to the sanding zone So the moulding zone, with rotocasting A torso is passing by The torso’s moulds. One is being closed They use rubber band to shut it tight So the mould can be rotated Some moulded parts Being prepared for sanding The sanding zone For the smaller parts With a lot of workers So that parts are the cleanest possible You probably realise these parts take up a lot of space All these different elements: big ones, small ones… It takes up place and it needs lots of people That’s why we can’t make a statue’s whole run in one go We have to split production in smaller batches So we use the factory’s available space No can do! There’s too many pieces… Don’t push! So, I showed you some of Broly’s… not everything I have more up my sleeve, but as I said, all in good time Now, let’s go for Madara I was supposed to bring Madara with me but He wouldn’t come… I think he’s got a date or something… So I brought only his dog! He’s my good boy! Yeah, a good boy! Right?! Who’s a good boy? You are! You are! This good boy is 28 kg roughly! You won’t have exactly 28kg but about that mass Because it depends on the quantity of the resin used inside, during the rotocasting But you already know that, now. 28 kg And if you consider the whole statue, there are 64 parts! 64 parts to build a whole Madara HQS+ You’ll see it takes a lot of space And Kurama is especially bulky Same as before, you can see the parts stored for drying Before the sanding step You can see all the parts, Kyubi’s tongue Madara’s legs Some Ace’s parts are still in production Flaming parts are drying You might also spot some of Saitama’s parts In the back, you can see how much space Natsu’s parts take Igneel’s necks part casted, was well as bases In which you can spot holes for the LEDs So, we were in the middle of testing Mould’s outputs, checking for potential flaws And you can see Kurama’s head behind but… Who the hell is this guy?! Incredible! Such power! This, my friend, is a handsome man! I only say that because that’s my boss! So, Madara’s base Is casted in one part: base and clouds And you can see it is being sanded So the finish is neat On the black part And the ribbon During all these steps, we use wet sanding So they use sandpaper, and water to make The sanding smoother Then, parts are stored until the next step Here you can see heads and base being stored Isn’t all this very impressive? Can you see all the space it takes There are 5 pieces stored on each palette This is a buffer zone They come here to fetch a part And prepare it before it goes for painting You can see how big is the head Each piece out from a mould is sanded on every needed part to get the required level of finish We scratch all the chop’s joints We carve the base of the hair Because these parts are really dirty When freshly casted You have to carve it again by hand This means each and everyone of you has a unique piece You can’t have the same one as your neighbour Considering all the work done by hand, it’s impossible! The teeth are being sanded too And you can see that when needed They might add some material to complete the sculpt And it’s being sanded again So, this is the teeth’s sanding and as you can see Sanding and… this one is put aside It needs to be worked on later. That one is good The small flaw is corrected Material is put, and it’s being sanded… It’s ready to be painted It’s ready to be painted! Yeah.. There’s a restaurant chain named Kung Fu! Now, they’re preparing the pegs On this base, on this very spot This is Madara’s placeholder So the hole is being cleaned out So it fits with the shape of the peg under Madara’s foot A quick use of the tool to get rid of the annoying part Last video: Still during the preparation, the… The hair is being slightly sculpted again Because they lost some details during the casting This is a very delicate step where you have to Work on all the joints I hope you found this video interesting See you in the next one. I promise next time we might probably see some painting

  1. Super vidéo. Par contre c'est trop perturban de mettre des visages qui bouge partout, on arrive pas à se concentrer et écouter. La prochaine fois c'est mieux de floutter je pense

  2. Superbe vidéo mais je pense qu'il serait plus utile de vous assurez de la qualité de vos produits. J'ai fait récemment l'acquisition d'une hqs et pour le prix je suis déçu. Pleins de petits défauts.

  3. Ce madare est sublime. J'ai hate de voir mon kurama et naruto.
    J'adore ces vidéos, je vais la regarder encore une fois ce soir tellement il y avait d'informations tres sympa

  4. J'aime ces vidéos : c'est instructif et intéressant. Voir le déroulement et les étapes de construction c'est énorme. Maintenant, je comprends vraiment mieux la difficulté et les délais.
    Oh purée la Broly 😛 !! Ça me rend fou d'attendre, vite svp, envoyez moi mon exemplaire, je n'en peux plus 🤯
    Mec (je me répète à chaque vidéo), tu représentes à la perfection l'image de Tsume. La direction, Monsieur le Boss gardez cet élément indispensable selon moi🤘

  5. Oh myyy 😱😱 All the hard work that a statue has behind is just unbelievable. Nice vid, love that you can show this to the fans 😊😋
