MacDev BCA Cyborg 6's

As some of you are probably aware, the breast cancer cause is something near and dear to my heart. My wife's mother lost a long and arduous battle with the disease and shortly after I did the initial project of the MacDev Clone GT's (now GTi'd) as seen below.





The original GT project was a labor of love in which I bought 6 markers from MacDev directly which were then anodized and assembled by the late Aggressive Sports Distribution and then lasered by Kohn Sports. Those markers were sold to 5 individual members in the MacDev Militia as well as one marker I kept for myself. The money form those markers was then donated to a local charity founded by a local doctor (Dr. Barbara Bowers Oncology Fund of the Fairview Foundation). This foundation was chosen as the doctor was my late mother-in-law's doctor throughout her treatment and the foundation was one that helped women afford treatment and/or medication that they needed but may not be able to completely afford on their own.

Following the success and popularity of the GT project and the announcement of the soon coming Cyborg 6 project I began coming up with ideas for a Cyborg 6 to do. Chris of Hebiki Design Works helped with the great mockup seen below as a great starting off point for the anodizing process.




I spoke with James and Bourke at MacDev Australia and they were on board to allow me to do another set of markers. I bought 3 brand new silver on silver ("Pure") Cyborg 6's as they would be the best candidates for anodization. Once I got the markers I disassembled them and sent them in to Bomber Anodizing to do the job.







Upon receiving the markers back from anno I immediately set to reassemble the markers, partly for those that bought them and mostly from sheer excitement . Overall I am very happy with the end result, but I am more happy that my wife likes how they turned out and that we are able to donate more money to a worthy cause.

I would like to personally thank the following people for helping with the process. Without them I could not have done this type of project again.

James and Bourke Grundy - Thank you for allowing me to continue to do these types of projects. Your continued support and cooperation is greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten.

Bomber Anodizing - Thank you for the work on the markers. The end result turned out great and will be sure to be a real eye catcher!

Juston Taul and Robby Deyo - Thank you for buying the other 2 markers and helping me to donate a significant amount of money to a great cause. I am certain that these markers will go to a great home where they will be cherished and appreciated both for the quality markers they are and the purpose they represent.

As with the previous project the money went to the same cause and my wife will be delivering the check to the doctor herself. My wife was completely in the dark with this project and it was a complete to surprise to here (until yesterday). She loves the end result and loved the thought behind the project as a whole again.

Below are a plethora of images of the end result. Thanks for looking at the thread and I hope you all enjoy it!

Love it! I understand your connection to breast cancer but it'd be sweet to make a more general cancer one too (or different colors for the different types).

Thanks man! I get the thought, the hard part (at least in my eyes) is how do you handle it? Do you just go "here's the design, now picture it with ____ cancer color instead."? Maybe I'm over thinking or missing something so glaringly obvious I just can't see it? lol

No I get it. I think the only real distinction between the types is the color of the ribbon anyway, and it's ultimately for the same cause. And it's hard to cater to all the different colors anyways ("well I wan't a lung cancer one" , "I want a ___ cancer one"). But you're local too which is

It's worth thinking about no doubt. I'm thinking a mid range next time to do more markers and a (hopefully) larger donation.
