OK, so I have been looking around for a pewter Atlantis City. I just found out that Langston Pewter (http://www.langstonpewter.com/index.php) is like 30 min away from where I live. I am going to commission them for a pewter Atlantis - DOES anyone else want one if I succeed? I am sure that they will be more affordable if more people want one. I am thinking of making a 3" diameter model of Atlantis out of clay or lexan or something and sending it to them. It would not be very detailed though. OR I may commission someone else to do one for me... they might do the destiny too... please respond in this thread if you are interested.

Not sure. The most expensive item on their website that they have made already is $22. Custom is determined by the difficulty I am sure. I volunteer to pay most of the initial expense, but I am sure once the mold is done it will be less costly. Its just if multiple people want them, it is more likely that they would do it.

Doesn't sound like a bad idea, but don't you need permission from MGM before making anything? Hate to see you do something real nice, just to have them come down on you for copyright stuff. :o

An excellent point. However, they DO have items that are similarly copyrighted:

If they sell it as a private exclusive exchange to ME and I "gift" them to others I dont think it will be a problem.
