    Hey Im bored and found someone willing to produce a gold big convoy but you have to buy a certain amt and I cant afford the amt......anyone on here want to fund it and sell the remaining or w/e and I buy one off of you. Below is what he wrote to me.

    1000 Peices is 350 RMB each.
    1 USD = 7.0 RMB

    IF you need less quantity like 500.
    The price may higher, around 450-500.

    Basically, we need make the pattern for that. Which cost lot.
    Then is the material for each one


    I know this is probably dumb as hell but I am extremely bored and figured Id throw it out there

    Sell off your big blue convoy to help pay for it then, once they have the mold they can make you whatever color convoy you want

    I would but noone has been interested in the figure for the price I paid for it and I dont want to cut the amt down as the figure is sure to increas in value and because I like it alot. Even if I did sell it, it wouldnt be enough to fund the gold copy big convoy. Its like what $4000 for the 1000

    I wish the guy would produce it and I buy one as thats all I want

    economies of scope

    increase returns to scale

    the more produce the more efficient

    he has to make a profit. to make one would be a loss

    are you saying $40 for all 1000 pieces or $40 each???

    I think its $40 each and times by 1000 pieces would be $4000 + shipping

    I could be wrong...Im not soo good at converting other currency's to U.S. dollars

    anyone else know?

    So what, he needs the figure and then he'll make a mold, or does he have the mold ready but wants see if someone wants it before casting them, also would it be chromed like the real version, or just gold plastic? Would he be able to do big blue convoy too? Also it's $50000 for the lot of them(7 goes into 350 50 times).

    Well, 40 times 1000 does not require any sort of conversion. As stated up there before, yes, it would be $40,000 (if your numbers are correct).

    However, in your first post, 350 RMB is about $50. Then it would be $50,000 for him to make the figures.

    yea sry for the abd math been running on like no sleep with 2 jobs and school.... but yea its about 5000 for the 1000 quantity or if I want 500 quantity it would be a little more a piece but probably around 3000 only for the 500 pieces. He said it will be chromed and have the clear gold parts like the lucky draw and he said he could do it in other colors as well.

    I honestly dont have the cash for that amt...and I dont plan on selling ko's but if anyone was interested in doing it and making a profit but letting me buy one or 2 off them, thatd be cool. If I had the $5000 or w/e I would but I dont hence why I posted this thread.

    You're math is confusing me. So according to your math above $5000 for 1000 pieces then each piece is $5? I'll fork the money out for that if it's that cheap but I think you have the math wrong. $50,000 for 1000 pieces which is $50 each sounds more like it.

    for the amount of cash its going to cost, you should just offer tf@themoon a good offer for their real one, or pay the guy the amount he wants to make just one.

    haha thats all i want is one but he is only produce in quantities of 500 or 1000. If you pay for 500 is a little bit more money each one. But you still have to buy a minimum of 500...so i was seeing if anyone was interested in buying the other amount and me just buying one. They can do w/e with the amt they buy. I would by the 500 amt but I dont plan to sell ko's and I dont have enough money to cover it as it is.
