If you think about it, thats not that bad

Nope, sorry.

 

$100, maybe. $150, hells no. There's no way I'd be willing to spend that much money on a figure, sight unseen, that doesn't do anything but sit there. 20th OP was over 70 when I was able to pick him up. He's bigger, heavier, and he does a hell of a lot more. Sure, he's got a massive company backing him, but we're talking about pre-made molds here. How much work really has to go into that? How much is sculpy really?

 

If you can't justify the cost, I'm not spending my money. In this case, I'm not spending my money anyway.

I'll ask you one thing about Prime, was he customed made and in extremely limited quantity? If this was official and some sort of lucky draw, you guys would be all over it

For 300 dollars? I wouldn't care if God himself painstakingly painted each and every little crevasse to be movie accurate, I'm not laying down 300 dollars for a statue. It's not going to happen.

 

And the guy has molds, how much work are we really talking about here? You can't charge people 300 bucks for paint aps.

Hey that's cool.

You don't have to buy one. :tfgrin

Don't get mad.

 

I just thought that some of you guys would want one.

I'm not pushing one on you. I even said I would trade.

 

It did take a lot of work to make one.

You try sculpting those faces that clean.

It's very hard to take something organic like clay and turn it

into something that looks mechanical.

 

The casts were another project by itself.

Look at the faces, those faces have some

really fine and intricate detail.

The molds are very complicated especially because they have

A lot of pointy angles, air bubbles are killers.

 

You know much resin is the egg alone?

Plus the clear resin with a touch of color.

I have to spend several hours casting, cleaning and assembling.

Not to mention painting.

 

You can’t compare me to Hasbro. They build thousands and spread the cost over each one. I’m only making two or three for my friends.

 

That’s the great thing about this country, you have a choice.

But please do not insult me or my ability, simply say:

 

“No thank you�

 

Instead give me some constructive criticism… tell me how I can make my sculpt better, did you like the colors, is it true to the character stuff like that. I didn’t post here to sell it, that’s why I said e-mail and we’ll talk. I posted it here for some feedback.

 

 

Thanks,

Joe

    • Yeah he's a pretty chunky monkey! I'm hoping his bulk lends itself well to some of my future builds! 😄
    • Uh did I miss something? Where does it say that it's a partial of Huffer? It's not stated in the quote here or in the livestream. In this quote it even says that it's "ALL NEW in three molds!!!". I mean it's standing right there next to Huffer and nothing looks to be shared. Nothing can be shared either as there's nothing in common with their transformations and all their parts work differently from their hands to their knees to their ankles to their waists, arms and torsos. Cosmos' transformation looks most similar to Warpath which would explain the leakers saying that it was a retool. Even then however, they share no parts. Warpath also has what looks to be like twice the parts count from all the flaps compared to Cosmos. I take this full quote as it's completely new as he states that there's a certain budget for new molds and that Takara managed to work within that budget to get all the parts needed while only using three mold sprues. It looks it as there's not a lot of individual parts. It looks like there's one mold in green, one mold in yellow and one unpaintable mold also in yellow. Two of the three shades of green are paint, the yellow on the arms and face is paint, both shades of blue are paint, the red is paint, the silver is paint. Which makes me wonder where the flag came from. If it came from one of the molds for Cosmos then it's not white. Meaning that they also used black and white paint. That's a shit ton of colors used on just one figure. There's also quite a bit of paint on him in general.  This guy is just showing him next to one of the other "Minibots" to better get a feel for his overall size. Not to show that Cosmos is a partial of Huffer.
