Wow...these are good, but $150? That seems pretty steep...and way over my budget.

$150 for 1 head??? ummmm...no thanks. they look pretty good though.

carbo-fation
05-15-2011, 12:45 PM
Guys, it's $150 for a painted head. I'm sure they may offer unpainted heads as well, which would be close to $45.

FlyAndFight
05-15-2011, 08:04 PM
The sculpts do look pretty nice but the painted version is way too expensive for me. I'll wait to see how much the unpainted version is.

Geb
05-16-2011, 04:21 AM
If these are 'mass produced', I can't imagine why it would cost even $45 for a head...$20-$25 I can see, but nearly $50...oh well...i won't be buying regardless...so i will shut up now.

lerath666
05-16-2011, 10:15 AM
as nice as they are, that's outta my range as well. for both the painted and unpainted heads.

Snyder-man
05-16-2011, 07:24 PM
Rather than having these types of conversations publically, I would greatly appreciate it if anyone interested in these portraits would send me a PRIVATE MESSAGE.

If you would like to discuss how much you feel custom heads should be worth, please do so in a seperate thread.

No offense to anyone that has previously posted on this.

Got these in the mail today (unpainted) and the scuplts are amazing. I just hope I don't screw them up by attempting to paint them myself. Couldn't afford the asking price on the painted ones.

If any of you are confident in your painting abilities I can't receommend the sculpts enough, they are really dead on likenesses as seen in the pictures.

The Merry sculpt is excellent, but the paint for the hair is a tad too dark - Merry's should be noticeably lighter than Pippin's...

pixletwin

Both are really excellent likenesses. The only thing I can critique is that Pippin's head looks a wee bit too large.

Jason, are you going to get their necks painted too? Or is it really that noticeable without a flash?

It isnt quite as noticeable but it would be good if they could be painted. I almost wish there was a way to paint them more closely to Frodo and Sam with there skin tone. It needs to be a matte finish for a lack of better term.

BTW thanks again Pix for all the hard work you put into these guys they are great and if you ever decide to do another run of the clothes let me know because I would love to have second set of these using the other heads.

Well, you need the clothes of Frodo and Sam anyway,
so, you could get both and sell the extras...
That's what I'm doing anyway!

I think you won't hear anything until they ship, and then you'll get a PayPal-generated shipping notice with your details. Don't worry!

The Snyders' heads were waiting for me when I returned from a trip yesterday, and they're great. I haven't emailed Erick yet, but I'm thinking I'll mix-and-match to have both sculptors in my set. So crazy after all this time to have two excellent interpretations to choose between.

Yeah thats what I wanted to do as well ,
but the bodies down under are very expensive and hard to come by
I am looking at about 120 + and then I still have to buy the head !

so as much i would love to get this , I dont think its a feasible option right now

Just thought I would bump Snyder-man's thread to show off his excellent sculpt, as painted by Skiman!

http://i332.photobucket.com/albums/m340/ski31man/Customs/DSCN1430.jpg

Again, thank you so much for being willing to take these two sculpts on and doing such a great job on them. If anyone is still on the fence about whether to complete their Fellowship with your sculpts, I hope they consider your excellent sculpt!

Man, those look great! I wish I could paint; I've had unpainted heads that I bought a few years back, and I customized the bodies and clothing over a year ago, but I don't have the skill to paint the heads. I really need to look into commissioning the work.
