    Official Commitment List: Han In Carbonite

    Im sure you have all seen my progres thread, the HIC is ready to start shipping. Located here:

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=33299

    Please read that thread carefully before asking questions, most have been answered there.

    As originally stated it was to be between $300 and $500 shipped.

    As of now, it looks like were looking at:

    Front Flat Pours (No sides or boxes)
    $375 for BLACK SHIPPED US
    $400 for GUNMETAL SHIPPED US

    Outside the us will be calculated by location.

    It is possible to do the sides in the rubber too, but were looking at $200 more plus more shipping. (As of now, I have no electronic boxes to sell, but will work with someone to see if they want to vac form them. FP? You there bud? You want to do a run of vac formed boxes? I can make you an alum filled plug if you want).

    If your going to just hang it on the wall or on a desk, buy the gunmetal, its very acurate. HOWEVER if your going to BUILD A FULL DISPLAY get the BLACK. It is cheaper, and will be much easier to paint. You wont be able to match the color of the gunmetal anyway,; black is better so you can paint the whole thing. Trust me on this.

    Members here with few posts will need to have a verified address on their paypal.

    Hard copies, can be purchased, but they cant be shipped. It will be local pickup only. Frontals at the same price. Full casts, with a foam backing for support around $700

    Moving forward, please post here your interest and in what, and I will contact you with a PM for payment. I will tally the list here, and I will contact you the week your copy will ship. I do not hold money, accept down payments, or pre-payments.

    If someone expresses an interest to buy, and I put them on the list, they should be ready for payment when I send the PM, else the next one on the list gets optioned.

    I expect the mold to last for 10-20 pulls.

    3 are poured/spoken for.

    Thanks,
    SR

    LIST --------------------------------------------
    DP74 GUNMETAL CAN SHIPPED

    That is a VERY reasonable price! I'm sure it will be a very successful run.

    Re: Official Commitment List: Han In Carbonite

    I would like to buy a black one since I would like to eventually do a full build up. Saying that it is easier to paint up the black, what color/s would be needed to finish it up with the side, once those are done up?

    The piece is uniformly a grey/black metallic. But it would be impossible to get the 'finish' uniform if you tried to match the box to the cast. Youll need to primer the entire piece, in order to get the proper finish.

    The color and finish on the gunmetal is going to be next to impossible to match, and more to the point, paint doesnt stick well to it, because it bonds to the outer layer of the rubber, and creates a surface, for lack of a better way to say it, paint just doesnt like!.

    So if I get the black will the paint stick to it? I realize I may have to primer the whole thing after it is all together, but I just want to make sure I'll be able to match the sides/boxes with the front when all is said and done.

    Re: Official Commitment List: Han In Carbonite

    Yes paint sticks to it. I use pactra paints. However, when you paint it, if you roll it up again it will crack. You need to lay it flat. if you want it extremely hard to the touch, youll want to back it with an expandable foam or other substance. Its very firm in places, and softer in others. It will hold its shape perfectly, but is still about the consistency of a rubber car mat in others (or it wouldnt bend to ship).

    Re: Official Commitment List: Han In Carbonite

    Ok,

    Looks like because of the size of this, the postage is gonna suck. But its not as bad as I thought.

    So, on a rough guess:

    Most of europe: + 40
    Most of canada: + 20
    Australia: + 60
    Austria: (looked up specifically) +40

    The box is going to be 36 x 36 x 16 ish. Which most places dont like.

    Itms will ship USPS or FedEx

    That is a big box!

    Shipping companies work to volume and weight which ever makes them most money, and they have a celling on this too.

    Re: Official Commitment List: Han In Carbonite

    Yes, im going to cut them down to 28 x 28 x 12 which fits the smaller shipping. I have 4 pulled, gonna wrap one up tonight, and unwrape it sunday, see how the wrinkles turn out.

    Those prices, are with us splitting the difference on shipping. Some will be a litle more, but ill eat the cost, its easier than charging, checking, mailing, re-billing, refunding.

    Im going to have to start billing and shipping tomorrow/saturday, as im in this thing about 3k now and would like to get out from under it a bit

    Re: Official Commitment List: Han In Carbonite

    Would anyone be interested for about 50-75 more, for me to pour an 'inside the body,face,hands,groin' foam filler piece that would make the piece firm once put in for mounting. I would mold release it so its in parts shipped. But can be lightly glued in, and would make him rock hard. Each one would have to have a custom piece made for it.

    You can of course do this yourself, for around $25 with expandable foam from the hardware store, you just ahve to be careful.

    It will require some trial and error, and materials, an labor, but ive had a lot of mails asking for it.
