15 missing figures project
Posted 26 March 2011 - 07:09 AM
Just wonder someone could be interested in order 15 missing figures set I'm going to order to the same creator of figures like Kali, Windigo, RedCap, Triton, Cyclops and Hydra? The figures will be created and sculpted in same way and same style of the original figures we all know. Will be also possible to choose the casting with hard rubber or soft rubber (this one almost same hardness of original MIMPs)
Please let me know if someone interested.
P.S. also Bash Tchelik will be avalaible together with 15 missing figures from 82 to 96.

I' m really proud to advice you that the quality probably will be Exact and figures will come surely in same style of original figures because the sculptor is the same that sculpted figures like Cyclops Hydra and so on, under commission by MEG company.
He's the owner of many different prototypes from 90's project.
The same person sold the large 2:1 protos to me when I found the picture on the web.
This is the link of that topic: http://www.littlerub...showtopic=32129
Obviously, more people we're and better will be for all because will be less expensive dividing expenditure.

Hey, this is good news, was he involved with the monster quest line? and are these new monsters going to be similar to the 1st 2nd 3rd series or are they more like the later series?
No no he's not involved with later Quest line but he has worked on the sculpt project of 90's figures.
So figures from 1st serie only.

I would be interested as well. But have you discussed price? That may be the make it or break it for alot of people.
probably the price will be a little bit high but (this is my personal thinking) for me it's important to have those figures... sure it'll be not crazy price but also if I have to pay 100$ for each figures I can definitely confirm my order. Some 3rd serie from Shreddies or BB have also high cost on Ebay, in this case the figures are more and more rare than them.
I talked with him alot and seems that he's able to put on points value on the back in the same style with circle and also writings on the bottom feet.

Big difference. I'd own a Snowman by now if I could every afford even $50 to $100 a figure.

yeah... is the initial fee to sculpt them $100 each~? then have someone mold them and sell them for cheaper~? or will they be $100 a piece to buy them~?
Hi guys I've some news,
As you said last message Eric, you correct, the price to create the sculpts at first is high.
The price for one set will be 1,500$ and it will include:
-15 missing figures in hard or soft rubber (the choice to the buyer) cast in same colours of 1st, 2nd or 3rd series colours including Big Boy's special colours; Really large Choice
Points and writing under foot and edge steps around the base of the figures (the same of original figures!!!)
They'll have the same style and same size the original MIMPs based on the Argentinian Stickers pictures that I already sent to him (not Quest line style or aspect)
-Bash Tchelik just if interested in (I'll order it too for sure) in special limited edition with some different writings as it's an extra figure also looking to the Stickers from Arg. Album
-Certificates of autenticity from the artists that's the same sculptor of 90's MIMPs with a lot of info about figures, about him, about the limited edition of this work and about his own brand mark
-Shipping included to you if you want or to me and then I ship to you... I don't know how it's better for all this is to decide yet..
I'm going to order the set for me (I'm not sure to take both soft and hard rubber) anyway you can decide if you prefer hard plastic or soft rubber (this last one so close to the original MIMPs rubber)
He wants to make this project in Very limited edition, he told me about 20 or 24 will be the maximum number of orders.
He will accept Paypal and he also told me will do a very good work of packaging and handling for each one with covers for Certificates and so on..
If someone interested in this AMAZING PROJECT please let me know here or contact me at: email@example.com

$1500 could buy a decent used car or cover 2 mortgage payments for me. I'll be curious to see what these look like but the price is way too high. Thanks for keeping LRG in the loop though.
Don't worry man, no one is obliged to take them. I know the price is high but this is the only way to have them, cause I have contracted a lot with him to have this price.
Looking at his 2:1 prototypes I bought from him, I think if the result is the same I'll be happy to have paid that price as well. The protos Job it's just Amazing!!! Take a look!!

This is the last message I've received by the Artist:
OK. I understand and we can approach this another way.
10 sets of 16 figures in lots of 1 - 5 is currently $1,500
First, we can make them cheaper if you get all your orders in at one time, so:
10 sets of 16 figures in 1 lot for $1,000 per set or $62.50 each.
But his means we need to have all 16 figs done and in molds to produce efficiently.
Therefore you would need to get all 16 figs carved first. And of course your 2 copies.
Anything above our rate is yours.
Option 2 - Order 15-20 sets for $800 per set ($50 per fig) $12K
Option 3 - Order 100 sets for $640 per set ($40 per fig) $64K
I wouldn't produce more than that.
Your thoughts guys?

Otherwise, maybe there are other options?
-A bunch of us could buy a set together, if we wanted different models from the set?
-Maybe we could vote on which figure we would most like to see sculpted? The most popular one(s) could then be cast and sold?
Personally, I'd love to see Grendel, Jabalius and Talos.
