Wow great work. Im sold if and when this add on is avail.
looks great will wait for this to be available
If you folks want this set produced by a third party group, let's help echo by posting and sharing the pictures and videos on social media sites. Show it to your friends and post them on other threads/blogs, etc. Surely, a group would take note of it and pick it up as a project.
hope so cuz I can't paint even if my life depended on it. This is one bad ass set!!!
I can paint some but I'll never be able to get that finish that the Takara set has.
Careful trying to entice other groups into making this. Fakebusker has had several of his designs stolen by shady companies without his consent (which he finds more flattering than agravating).
oh my god, I would so get in on a kickstarter for this!
With our luck it would be crazy devy that made it and cost $300. lol
Indeed. Don't send schematics or even access to get a physical copy of the items... at least not without you getting some sort of compensation well before production.
If he makes it available via Shapeways that will be a bit difficult, don't you think?
THIS IS TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! AND I AGREE this needs to be picked up by a decent third party company hey MMC jump on this guy.
Could I see some comparison pics of Fansproject bruticus and sdcc bruticus with your add on.
I think he compares the two in his YouTube video
Kickstarter is a great idea provided you can get a 3rd party that can provide you with a means to mass manufacture effectively.
Great discussion guys, I do need to answer some questions...will do that this weekend but in the meantime I decided to add a poll.
I hear the requests to go third party and yes I've been considering that really heavily. But it's not as simple as some may think--it actually means more time and investment from me; it's not a sure thing AND it will take a lot longer to get it in your hands.
Are you okay with that?
Will you loose interest in this in the meantime?
Will other, cooling toys be competing for your money?
What if not all 5 versions are released? (obviously we would try and release all colors, but it's extremely unlikely all 5 would be available at the same time...it could be months after the first version ships before you get the version you want--for example, maybe Fruiticus is release 1, and then SDCC is release 2 a couple months later, G2 a couple months after that, etc.)
But on the flipside, you'll get a finished kit--no painting. That's really nice. And the price will likely be less than Shapeways--not insanely less, but a bit less, which will help.
I'm interested in your opinions--poll closes in 4 days. Thanks guys!
I am willing to wait for the 3rd party to make my Bruticus from blah to AWESOME with your kit.
Whatever is easiest for you and gets the product to us as quickly as possible.
With that said, if you would be more profitable by doing it 3rd party, then do what's good for you and your fam. You should profit from your labor and creativity.
Thanks for creating this and hopefully sharing this with us.
Echo: - I'm very happy to see how far this has come already. Whatever you decide to do, do it, you'll have my money.
I guess we now have a poll! I voted for waiting for this to be released by a 3rd party.
