Do you know the old story about the Inuit, who cut some fabulous figurines out of bone ?
A businessman and his wife saw them, and the wife bought one for 10 dollars.
The husband saw great business there, and asked what the price would be, if he ordered 100, expecting to get a rebate.
But the Inuit thought about it and said, - if you want 100 I must have 50 dollars each !

But why Shocked The businessman said, I must get them cheaper if I buy so many !

No, no, the Inuit ansvered, - if I have to make 100 it will be work, and very booring, so I must have a lot more for them Wink

Balti: The problem is, that making moulds is a very expensive business, in any trade...
not even talking about the research before that...
But i agree totally with you!

Susanne: Now that was a clever Inuit-man, maybe he could have made moulds indeed, from sealskin or so, haha... geek

W,
I'm not familiar with the mold making process. Even though it may be difficult(As you said), if one really wanted to make some money, and if you have a nice product that collectors will buy, it could be very rewarding financially!

Yes, that is true, but the collectors are not the main market as you know, that is still children... Laughing

Things are so expensive these days, you would have to have a good amount of money to set something like this up.

I still go back to the Hasbro Star Wars figures/vehicles/play sets. Intended for kids, but adults really collect them.
So they cater to kids, but they know the adult collector fan base is huge(That's why they charge more for the vehicles and play sets. Figures are reasonably priced), and thats where they will make their money!

We always enjoyed the mass produced figures! As the years are going our levels of exigence are growing but I'll continue with my mass produced figures and seeing that some brands are in the right way. and as always as I can and want to pay more to have a higher quality I know where to find it! flower flower

Glad someone brought this thread up again, since I seemed to have missed it while I was gone. These big cats are amazing. I would love to have some. Maybe he can work with Mojo and these cats be part of their 2013 or 2014 line. I know Anna worked with them making the gorgeous horses. With her work and these beautiful cats that would put Mojo extremely high on the collector's wish lists.

Despite the fact they're gorgeous, one can't expect someone making 20 of them with such a detiled paintwork as a mass product.
Toooooooo sad. i still need them Wink
