    I will not:

    Pay for the production

    Blackmail

    Provide the figure

    Pay for the production


    For this custom to be made.

    If anyone does this, it should be metallic orange.
    I wish for it to have Abbey road, Revolver, Sgt Pepper, and Let it Be decals on both sides. Beatles Logo and jumping silhouettes on hood. Will pay 30-40 USD for completed figure thru Ebay "buy it now." Will PM ebay username when figure is completed.

    Yeah, if you are serious, you're really gonna have to bump up that price. $30 - $40 will barely cover the figure and paint....

    Plowking is right. $30 - $40 is for the materials (figure, paint, etc.), you need to offer more for the handy work itself.

    Lets break it down.

    Alt Skids: on average $25 on eBay
    Paint: around the $10 mark or so....according to what paint and how much is required

    That's $35 right there....you're only leaving $15 to $20 for the custom work itself....and that's not even including the custom decal work you want done....that alone will swallow up that $20 that's left over, and then some.

    Bottom line, $20 just isn't enough to cover the labor in making a custom.

    Most people ask $90 minimum for a repaint, $50-55 is an insult.
    Plus no one is going to make a custom "in the hopes your actually going to buy it"

    Come on - you guys can easily do it for the amount stated. Bear in mind, he never said he wanted it to look good.

    Bullshit. If he doesn't care if it looks good or not, then he could do it himself. Remember, you get what you pay for.
