Nice toys! If you need prototypes gimme a shout. One of the studios I work for specializes in resin prototypes. Bezoar5000 at g mail.
- yeah man! shooting you an email nowMiguex
- this is good know, thanks bezutopian
- ur welcome. this is the place I'm at https://www.facebook…bezoar

- Yes, but the studio is going through some rennovations. The building owners took away half the studio so all the cool shit is in storage. Still neat tho.bezoar

There really isn't a 'cheap' option. It's just 'fucking expensive', and 'really fucking expensive'. I just sculpted a monster for some company. The guy said the molds alone cost him 25 K and to manufacture 100 figures will cost an additional 60K. They look great tho. Just released his Kickstarter today.
You might look into TPE; large durometer range, very affordable material.
The molds are probably going to cost you though, that's usually the investment.
I saw a range of $2,300 - $6,300 this week just for the single release mold for a 100mm x 100mm x 34mm part
Prototype printing will not be cheap. Sculpting originals may be a more cost effective route?
It appears those examples are multi-piece then assembled, increasing manufacturing costs.
- they are actually a solid single piece, no movable parts. They are just good resolution. At least it's what I'm aiming for (the one w the cat could be 2 parts)Miguex
- Yeah prototyping is pricey, I was quoted about $600 for resin, one for testing one for molding so it would be $1200 just on protoMiguex
- I think resin might be more in my price range, but will look into TPE thanks!Miguex
Put them into some sorta creative small container / package where a kid would have to remove it strategically and they'd sell like hotcakes. Like an egg that breaks apart (think hatchables). Kids go nutz for that kind of shit.
