Thanks for all of the info. Let's see what the end product is like.
So I stumbled on to this article before actually tripping over myself and subsequently free falling through this thread. I contacted Mile High a little while ago, essentially just asking basic questions regarding production capabilities and time frames. No response as of right now. I did just message 3P on the 'Book and they were quick to respond with: "...we are just now getting the building built. I don’t expect to have it up and running till November. We’ll be posting constantly as we go. Thanks for your interest."
Needless to say, as a fledgling toy designer based on the east coast of the United States who's constantly seeking means of production, this whole development is extremely interesting and I look forward to seeing where it goes!
Any news on this stuff?
I'm still chatting with MHS at the moment. He's asked for a 3D scan of my sculpt as well as a resin copy so far. At this point I think it'd be less of a hassle to just send it straight to a factory
These got posted today.
So far it sounds like the FyreFest of vinyl production, will wait to see what happens.
Yeah there was no actual information in that video besides a lot of fluff about hopes and ideas
Does anyone remember the American outfit that pulled Plaseebo’s Molezilla? What happened to them? It has been done.
That was Bullshark out of Texas. The EPA shut them down.
From what I was told, it was over them trying to make molds stateside. Which I can totally see why, the electroplating shit’s dangerous AF.
Chance posted a few photos of the site where they are building the factory, and it looks like they’re literally building it - from the foundation up. My question is: Is there a good reason to do this state-side? Is it a creative control thing?
Everybody seems to be saying it would be more authentic to contract this with Japanese factories, for those who find that really important, and it seems like it would be cheaper to do it anywhere in Asia.
Mile High is showing off what they are calling a "production casting" and will be at Designer-Con:
Chance Priest posted a status last week regarding the 3P facility:
I got to meet Paul Schiola at Designer-Con and handle his figures, they are impressive. Paul is very friendly and super enthusiastic about the project. He is already selling the Frankenstein figure and the Space Monster test shot is on display, it's very large and imposing (bottom figure in this pic):
I'm really looking forward to seeing what he's going to do next.
So I looked up the Kickstarter and it was actually Veracious Vinyl, who seemed to also make a buff monster and kozik toy too in their brief run. I think bull shark was actually a few boardies in Florida who posted a few test pulls, but I don’t think they ever moved forward with manufacturing.
Haters will say it’s photoshopped.
