There is no way anyone is going to pay 1000 bucks for a figure like this. If they really wanted to sell this, the just need to work on a mechanical process themselves. Having done sculpting molds, once you make the first imprint, you can make a lot more enmasse much faster. And as a second thing, a company liek Mattel has the means to produce this product, all the linens, etc and sell it to a consumer for m100 dollars easy. 1000 dollars? I'll pass

Ok first off, READ it carefully next time, he says, and i quote, "Abotu guesses it might cost over $1000 to make selling these worth it." He's not saying he's going to sell it for 1k, he says for it to be worth making them, he would would prolly sell for around that much. And about your rather pathetic attempt at comparing him to Mattel, i mean come on dude, a good portion of this figure was made from COMPLETE scratch, not asian kids scratching around a 20x50 ft sweatshop in the middle of some country getting paid 50cents a day. And considering there's collector that Star Trek(i know not the same, but stay with me)hand made items go for several thousands, a hardcore player wouldn't mind paying it if he ad the money.

If I had the cash, I would. If nothing else I'd do it just to prove your fail.

He isn't Mattel. He's one dude, with no major manufacturing anything, who painstakingly put together this thing bit by bit, by hand, sculping the bits that needed to be sculped, and did it all over an existing action figure which means he had constraints to work with as far as what could go where.The hair is all hand-braided from the looks of it, and the armor is a custom fit too. This isn't a mass-produced product, this is less of an action figure and more of a poseable statue of sorts, and by all means for the amount of time and effort that went into designing it and putting the thing together, $1k is -not- too much to ask. You may not pay it, you make think it's excessive, but it's not a toy, it's a work of art.And trust me when I say there are people out there that would easily drop that much on having something like that. This blows a figureprint right out of the water.
