    You can confirm me for one set!

    I'll keep an eye out for usable pics.

    Just had an email in from Ada:

    If you can find 5 more people. That means 15 people at US25 each, then I can wave the US230 and also US25 will also included shipping to each of you. What do you think?

    Ada.


    So if theres 15 of us then theres no generation fee thats a straight $50 for 2 sculpts including postage !

    So its just about hitting the magic 15 ?? that sound any better to those that dropped out now ?

    Holy Ori Batman! Thats cheap! That sweetens the deal for me and I was already in. I definitely vote for waiting to see if more committment is out there for that price.

    Beckett Re: McKay & Beckett 1/6th Headsculpt signup thread

    This is Thunderbird 2,

    after a quick Q/A to Mooncat, I confirm I am def still IN, for two Dr Beckett heads!

    There is something else I am going to do too....


    (Ten mins later)

    I have posted the following in several threads!


    Many of you may or may not know DST / AA has ground to a halt on their Stargate action figures. They haven't said yes or no, but at present, there is no guarantee that there will be an action figure of Dr Beckett.

    A few of us have decided we want to take matters into our own hands if we can. (Special thanks to Mooncat for this). We are trying to get at least 15 people to commit to the commisioned manufacture of the heads of Dr Beckett and McKay in a 1/6 scale. (I am for Dr Beckett!) full details of this activity can be found in the following thread:

    http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=61692

    Hope to see you there!

    Thunderbird 2.

    Ada will now produce these for $25 a sculpt if we can generate 15 sets (a set is 2 heads)

    If you dont want Beckett and McKay have Beckett and Sheppard. Buy any 1/6th sculpt from Ada and have that with a new SGA sculpt . . We need 15 sets to make this $25 a sculpt the confirmed list so far is :

    Mooncat x 1 set (2 heads Beckett and McKay)
    Roll my Blues x 1 set (2 heads Beckett and McKay)
    Thunderbird 2 x 1 set (2 x Beckett)
    (anonymous) x 3 sets (that's 6 heads)


    http://www.wantedactionfigure.com/shop.asp

    So thats 15 sets needed we have 6 confirmed we need another 9

    Ok guys its the 21st and some developments, its possible that the origination for one of the headsculpts will be put up by one of us. I will be confirming this and as soon as I know I will go to Ada with what we have asking for both sculpts to be created.

    However it maybe that she says no too originating 2 sculpts when weve only got enough to originate 1

    Casts she wanted 30 for free origination weve raised

    14 casts and an origination fee So im hoping she will go for that

    So it maybe that in the next week that I come to you for your $50

    or it maybe that I simply let the anonymous benefactor pay Ada and originate the sculpt on between her and Ada (afterall those that dont pay dont have a say in its development and final look)

    So a big thank you to those that have posted twice that they will be in for this and paying this week. If the benefactor is prepared to pay for the origination then Im hoping that we can get Beckett and McKay.

    Unfortunately due too numbers McKay is not able to be produced, Beckett is now being commisioned, but commisioned privately but I expect casts will become available when its completed.

    High five to whoever is looking after Beckett!

    Too bad about McKay but here's hoping for sometime down the road.

    Thanks for the updates.

    I likes it definitely Beckett in that sculpt, with the right paint and BDU's . . X

    She captured the hair perfectly

    Actually, I emailed her to see if she'd fix it to add Beckett's distinctive dimples, so we'll see. It's good to see she's already put it up on her site to order! Have at 'em, girls and boys. And yeah, didn't she do a great job on the hair? I dare say it looks more accurate than the Sheppard head.

    There is a Scottish Saying "Sufferin for a freen doubleth freenship."

    Ahem, - do Mr McGillion's dimples show when he looks serious though? I thought they stood out only when he smiles?

    Again I have done a quick run around the various Pro Beckett threads to post the link to the webpage. Hopefully that may make more people want to commit?

    Well, he's supposed to be smiling just a little bit... I asked her to keep it a fairly neutral expression, though, because smiling action figures tend to look a bit awkward when you arm them with guns.

    Fair point, and thanks for specifying keep it neutral. DST did the character of Nurse Alyssa Ogawa from Star Trek the Next Generation. Unfortunately, they used a still of Actress Patti Yasutake broadly smiling. - The actress looks lovely. The figure? -

    Besides, Dr B looks best when sublty smiling, as he could be happy, or trying to provide reassurance.

    eep! Yeah, that's definitely awkward. But I do think just a tiny hint of dimples, not overdone, makes Beckett complete. I really like those dimples... *blush*

    So tell me....why is she charging such a high fee to sculpt this, when she is gonna mass sell it on Ebay and her website?
    I could see paying the upfront high cost of the sculpt if it was gonna be just for the handful that she was "contracted" to do.
    Seems like she is getting a little over payed by make you all pay for the initial sculpt then turn around and "mass produce" it for Ebay and her site.

    She charges a lot more ($600 each) if you want to retain exclusive rights to the sculpt. The cost of making a cast is still $25 each, but we just didn't have enough people interested to do both sculpts. Quality has its costs, I guess.
