Hey everyone, I have a commission I'm trying to do for a Greedo mask/bust and hands set, and I've got 9 openings on the first run list to fill! A friend and professional mask maker, Erich Lubatti, recently was commissioned to make an Admiral Ackbar mask and hands set which came out just incredible! Seeing it had me thinking about talking to him about a Greedo mask, something I've been wanting a LONG time, but there really isn't much out there other then the Don Post mask. Erich was excited and eager to work on a Greedo set, so we worked out the details!
Here is the rundown of the deal, there's going to be a limited run of 10 sets made to start, each will be numbered, signed and come with a matching signed certificate from Erich. The mask and hands will be poured in top grade latex, hand detailed intricate paint job, and see through tinted acrylic bubble eyes are included. The set will be completely wearable, designed to be so, but will also make an excellent display of course. The price on the first 10 will be $200 plus exact shipping to you. $100 will be put down for Erich to get supplies and materials to start the project, and then upon completion, the remaining $100 and shipping will be sent to him. After the first 10 are finished, he will be selling more himself, but at a considerably higher price, and no certificate or signatures.
Erich is a fantastic artist and person who I've worked with a number of times all with excellent success, quick turn around time, and absolutely solid top notch work! Here's a few pics of the Admiral Ackbar set he did to show his work, and how capable he is of the Greedo set. (the Ackbar set is available to buy from him as well)
Also, here's his site with a lot more of his work and masks, and custom pieces and commissions he's done over the years
How this run will work is first come first served, in the order of messages/emails I receive will be your number (starting with 2) Once all 10 spots are filled you'll be asked to send the first half of the payment to Erich, at which time he'll start working on the set. Hard to pin an exact time frame on something like this, but I'd say approximately 3 to 4 weeks for the sculpting, then another week or 2 for the finished sets to be made start going out. Either message me on here, or send an email to email@example.com with your name, board name, and that you want a spot in this run. I'll compile the list and let Erich know when we have 10!
*All 10 spots are filled now, so this will get underway! Sets will be available to buy later, once these 10 are finished, but will be a higher cost, and not be signed or numbered*

Everyone is in, Erich has started the sculpt and said he's near progress pic time! He's going to do a mass email to the 10 in the run with all the pictures, then I'll pick a few to update this thread with for anyone who's watching, and wanting to see how this goes, and/or is interested in buying a set from Erich once the run is complete!
