I hope you get it soon. Your all the way on the other coast plus customs so I can understand that. Damn mail service!

It just arrived this eve. I dunno who was delivering packages on a Saturday but I'm glad they did. I'll get some pics up once I have a chance to take some. Got a 5 year old in the house and tomorrow is Valentines so it might take a day or two. It is gorgeous! I can't wait to see it in the sunlight, unfortunately I live in Vancouver... we don't get a lot of that here at this time of year. Heh.

Love the little guy you packed in too! I would have totally missed it if you hadn't told me you packed it in there. I've already rearranged one of my detolf shelves to get it in. They are pretty tightly packed these days. :D

Weird comment but I really like the heft of the resin figure. Makes it feel a bit more upscale if you know what I mean.

Congrats man, you really did an amazing job on this!

If for some reason you've been waiting to pull the trigger on one (or both) of these, what are you waiting for? These are well-executed and will do nothing but elevate your collection to the next level! Great work, Mikey!

I don't usually do the internet forum thing - but I created an account here just to say how awesome I think these designs are.

If you ever get around to producing the Bishop, I will be first in line, stuffing wads of (admittedly weak) New Zealand Dollars into your hand. Especially if there's a Black & Purple variant.

Keep up the good work!

Wow thank you! And don't worry the bishops will be made. And since purple is my favorite color there will be purple variants. I'm starting work on some custom colors very soon. So I'll keep everyone posted here and Instagram (name in my signature).

ok guys im going to let some of my test prints go. they are not perfect but i need some money for some supplies. i was thinking 20 bucks including shipping. 25 for the pink since its the best one. the blue is really nice also but has a chunk of mold stuck in it so it not worth selling at full price. they all glow except the clear version.

[What do you think of the blue and pink? Are the colors keepers?]

I tend to like deeper blue's personally.... but the pale glitter is lovely.
I'm glad you got needed supplies.
As for That Pink.....?

He is Bad Candy Man...

He talked the Blue into following him to a local bar for beer and chat of politics. (I think blue's depressed now)

I hope you make the Bishop next.
Keep up the great work!

I want to make that bishop tomorrow but it's actually really tough to mold. I might need some professional help for that one and its gonna be expensive. But I'm saving little by little for it. It's going to be a big piece also so it'll be a little time.

Although it's difficult, these are so worth the wait! Whether it's another Rook, or the Bishop, I'm confident it'll be another great product.

Agreed. Even those "rough" test molds looked good IMO.
