Discussion on **Interest** Jeremy Face Cast within the Boba Fett Helmet forum, part of the Star Wars Original Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; bobamaker said: Well, here's how the face stands at the
A couple of reasons why I'm only making 30.
1: Because I'm so busy (as any of my customers will confirm) I'm having to make these in my spare time, and spare time is very limited. This isn't a profit making venture, it's something that I thought I'd share here whilst I had this rare opportunity.
2: Jeremy and his agent have agreed to let 30 copies go ahead, they want to keep the run very small and exclusive to TDH members.
Sorry if you didn't make the list, I hope this makes it clear
DAZ, any news about the costs for material etc ... curious what I have to pay and I bet many others wait for that too ... sorry for the leck of patience ... ;-)
great job you´ve done here!
If someone decides to drop off the list please add me as a replacement, I would like one of the Lifecasts...
The casting's look great! I do agree with the consensus. Eyes closed. I would have said open, but the more I think about it, shut is better.( I will most likely be diplaying cast on my wall.... Imagine having G.B ( Fetts ) eyes follow you around in that poster eyes way...)
Those look the bee's knees way too poor at the moment (as are many others, what with christmas not helping matters..humbug ) to have been able to get one.. they look fantastic though
What a nice guy Mr Bulloch is to have done this
Why is JB first on the list?? I mean he owns the original and can sign it anytime he wishes right????
I keed! Nice work brother!
I've now worked out the cost of these. These prices don't include shipping yet, I will need to make a copy first and get it priced at the Post Office. I estimate that the States will be around £10 ($15) standard airmail and the UK around £5-£7.
- UK: £44 (plus shipping)
- USA: $68 (plus shipping)
- UK: £19 (plus shipping)
- USA: $30 (plus shipping)
This cost includes all of the materials used to get to the final copies:
No need to confirm just yet, let me get the correct shipping costs first.
What a relief! I thought these would be alot more. Thanks Daz. You the man!
daz, i definetely go for signed. could you also please check on the shipping to europe?
Yup, still in Daz... signed!
YYYYEEEESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH DAZ YOU ARE THE MAN>>> NO YOU ARE A GOD AMONG MEN!!!!! I want mine signed, and I am sure we all do. So you'll PM us when your ready right?
Yiekes!!! ONLY 30 bucks for a plain???? You really are a man of your word Daz... Thank you for making these!! You rock! Well, so does Jeremy. Pm sent on this..
I know im first on the back up list,but i cant see anyone else backing out
Anyway,i know some people want a short run and some are wishing for a longer run, and i can understand both points of view from the lucky 30 having a very limited item and also the ones who saw it late missing out on such a great piece.Would it be an option to do a limited number of 81 based on the year TESB was released(1981 being the year it was released IIRC) thus making it more of a tribute to Jeremy and his first appearance as Boba?
I was going to suggest this before but didnt want to sound rude,but i think it could be even better idea for both yourself and Jeremy as it could be a real exclusive that no one else has done,and FWIW i think you should sign the cast too.Im pretty sure all 81 would go,whether they are SE or plain and you could have some sort of online list here on TDH as to which collector owns which number/edition?
And that is fantastic work,you are a genius.
Gutted I didnt see this in time to get one
Would look sweet mounted next to my ROTJ suit your building for me DAZ, but hey ho. I hope you guys enjoy the piece:thumbup
DAZ thank you soooooooo much i too felt these were going to be alot more and i would have paid more... but thank you for the XMAS gift LOL
Just let us know when to send Payment (signed please)
Are you going to be selling the full bust you'll be creating?
I don't know how I missed this thread, but if there is any way to get in on this I want in!
Er,why has my name dissapeared from being number 1 on the back up list???
Hope i havent offended anyone?
count me in brother!! just let me know how/when to pay!
Christmas has come early indeed. Great price for what will be a great collectable. Great work Daz, you are indeed the new Santa!!!
***! ***! ***!
Where do I send money!
I've now started making the silicone mould. The plan is to get this finished before this weekend then I can get a copy boxed up and weighed, this will allow me to work out the correct shipping costs.
I will publish a photo of the finished resin cast together with the coldcast plaque this weekend. At this stage you can then decide whether you want to proceed and I can start taking payments. I would like to get all 30 copies produced over the Christmas break ready to ship in the New Year. All signature payments will be sent to Jeremy's Paypal address, this will help keep things a little easier for me.
looking great. can't wait to see more.
Looking forward to seeing more progress, great job Daz, and nice gesture too.
This is looking great! I plan on keeping my #2 on the list
Those are beautiful (okay that doesn't work), they are truly awesome and hate I missed out on these at such a low price.
I will definately proceed ... This is getting awesome DAZ ... great work!
Thank god i got in.The wife said it scared her,but i told her either i get one or i'll freeze her in carbonite-i wont reply what she said.
Im defiantely in for a signed one Daz.
DAZ, I am in for a signed one! Just to complete my post above ... :-)
I am SO in for this!!! Great work Daz!
i know i'm 5th on the back up list, but now that we have a price idea, i'm very interested
That looks amazing.
It's too bad it's only 30 copies.
I'm still in, Unsigned for me please. can not wait, lookin good
Ive said it before and I will say it again. I am in for the signed version!
Question: DAZ, where would Jeremys signing be placed? On the plaque or somewhere else? Please don´t let him sign them across the face! ;-)
Let us know when we should place our payments.
Pretty sure that JB will sign the plaque rather than the face, this means that they can be displayed together with the plaque if desired. Plaque's been ordered today and will be with me early Jan. The mould is complete (pics later) so I'll get the first copy made today and show pics here.
Just finished Jeremy's copy which he asked to be a Bronze Coldcast version. I've also shown the moulding process here.
IMPORTANT: Our copies will be a light, almost fleshtone polyurethane resin, not coldcast.
All the boxes have arrived so I can now get this one boxed and weighed so I can publish the shipping costs for you.

Hi Daz, wow they look great! Can you please check the postage cost to New Zealand also?

Wau man!!!!!!!!awesome !!!!!!!!!!!
Oh wow, I cant wait to have mine in my greedy little hands (rubbing hands like a mad man)
This will be my first piece of Daz's work, and more than likely not the last
Sheesh! This gets better by the minute... Just cannot, I JUST CANNOT wait..
Your mould (matrix style?) is awesome, thank you very much for your pics!
FACE CAST (including Shipping)
I'm now taking payments for the JB Face Casts. My PayPal is firstname.lastname@example.org These prices include the shipping cost which is for a ‘signed for’ service.
USA $46 (US Dollars)
UK: £23 (GBP)
Northern Ireland: £23 (GBP)
Finland: £27 (GBP)
New Zealand £30 (GBP)
Argentina £28 (GBP)
Germany £28 (GBP)
Canada £30 (GBP)
Norway £28 (GBP)
Spain £28 (GBP)
- If you would like your copy signed by Jeremy Bulloch (it can be personalised too), then you will need to send the £25 ($37) to his PayPal address, NOT TO ME. His address is email@example.com and the Title should read “FACE CAST” and include your “TDH NAME”.
- When making payments to me or Jeremy please include your TDH NAME so we know who you are.
I will be making the 30 copies over the Christmas break, ready to ship in January. So you can now make the payments to me for the facecasts and Jeremy for the signatures. I will update page 1 of this thread showing who has paid, who wants signatures and when they are shipped.
I understand that this has landed at a difficult time, with Christmas almost upon us, so payments can be made over the next few weeks. If you want to remove your name from the list, no problem, just PM me as soon as possible and I’ll move other members up the list.
Have a great Christmas,
paypal sent also to jeremy thanks
Thanks again for this opportunity.
PP sent to you and Jeremy
PP sent to you and to Jeremy!
Thanks a lot for this!
Paypal sent. Will PM you with the details. Thank you.
Paypal sent to yourself and Jeremy Daz.
Guess you could make a Boba Fett in Carbonite with this.
Nate... I hate you.. That is JUST what I was about to do with mine...
OK, I've now updated the list with all the payments up to this point.
When paying, please let me know if you have paid Jeremy for a signature so I can put a note on the list, thanks.

Aww, shucks!!! When Daz posted about this, a friend of mine, with whom I have been building proton packs mentioned that he is running Finncon come next year, and asked if we could do a HIC in the front lobby. After reading about this, I phoned to him, and asked, how about BIC instead... Well, after I get my cast from Daz, I'll start working on on my version of this...
part 1 of a 2 part payment made
first of two payments made.... just paid Jeremy, now how much for you Daz? (USA) $37 to Jeremy, and $46 for you correct?
Second payment made
Oh my...Just made a huge investment... I will have to pay in a couple weeks. Is that fine Daz?
Paid for mine, I am number 19 on the list. I am also # 30 for some reason, so you can bump Combatbaby up in to my #30 spot.
Sending payment for signature to Mr Bulloch right now.
EDIT: BOTH payments are complete

Well, it's a fantastic price and looks great, but I had to pass!
I hope this makes another TDH'er happy!
Payment sent DAZ! Thanks man!
Thank you Daz!!!
Just sent payment to both you and Jeremy - also picked up a copy of Flying Solo
Thanks for doing this mate!
Daz, as much as I would like one, I think I have to step off the list.
Both payments made. Thanks Daz and Jeremy!:thumbup
I almost passed this up myself, but I very glad that I stuck with it. Cheers for sharing this with us!
What will happen with the mold when you are finished with it? Will you destroy it? or keep it? maybe Jeremy has asked for it?
I cant wait for mine.
Here are the first four copies, trimmed out and ready. The inside of each cast has a small Coldcast BM plaque embedded within it and I've numbered each one together with my signature. Jeremy will then number the main display plaque (not shown) and sign it if you have paid for the signature. The numbered plaque will then correspond to the numbered face cast.
I spoke to Jeremy today and the plan is for me to finish all the casts and plaques for the end of Jan/early Feb. I'll then drive to Jeremy's house for him to sign the plaques, I'll take some photos of this for the thread.
Hey DAZ, great idea with the photos of Jeremy signing the casts!
Is it possible to get a printed copy of one or two signing-photos so I can put them on the wall next to the cast?
Would be a great deal. Maybe you take some money for this extra. I would pay for it if it´s an option.
What do you think of it?
Looking forward to getting this!
Is the number on the cast going to correspond with the number each kept in the orderlist? :-)
Daz, PM sent
Daz is there anyway I can get #27 from Bubba Fett, instead of #26.
