Digital Extremes Prepares Warframe TennoCon Museum Featuring Life-Size MOA
Volpin Studios’ Creation Is Part of a Bigger Life-Like Exhibit
LONDON, ON – July 2,
2019 – Digital Extremes has partnered with Volpin Studios to create incredible life-like
Warframe statues, props, and surprises for this year’s fourth annual Warframe
This year, the collection of real-life items are collected in a “museum” highlighted by the life-like, five-foot tall MOA, a two-legged, Corpus-built robot. This year’s TennoCon sees the return of the giant Rhino statue, the MOA, a Lotus Helmet, a Relic, and more.
In addition to Digital Extremes, Volpin Studios has worked with numerous other industry-leading game studio, including Blizzard Entertainment, Riot Games and more, to create an incredible array of stunning work. For this MOA, seven artists put in a combined 800 labor hours and used 11 3D printers to create it. The 3D printers were at work for more than 1,000 combined 3D printer hours and used more than 1200m/1.2km of 3D Printer filament to create the one, remarkable MOA.
“Partnering with Digital Extremes to create the MOA from Warframe has been an exhilarating experience; not only is the MOA our largest high-detail replica to date, it’s easily the most intricate! It took the expertise of everyone here at Volpin Props to bring this piece to life, and we can’t wait to share it with fans at this year’s TennoCon!”
