    Default McKay & Beckett 1/6th Headsculpt signup thread

    Starting this as weve had some interest in commisioning some headsculpts for 1/6th scale figures (12 inch action figures).

    Currently theres 4 sets of McKay and Beckett signed up, we need 10 sets,

    We would need 10 people to signup to get them sculpted at $40 each

    They can eventually be made into 1/6th scale figures (see below)

    Here are 2 Stargate figures already sculpted by Chan Ada and then clothed and geared by Myself and Roll my Blues.

    So far the following people have said they would be prepared to purchase them:

    Earthgate Ricky x 2 sets
    Mooncat x 1 set
    Roll my Blues x 1 set (provisional)


    So that makes 4 of the 10 required, if anyone is willing to buy a set please leave a post stating how many sets. (If your interested in just 1 of McKay or Beckett please post also)

    You can make it official and sign me up for one set.

    Great job on getting the ball rolling Mooncat.
    Rope climbing's the reason I got bronze instead of silver in the ParticipACTION programme.

    On the subject of 1/6th sculpts a friend of mine over at the Sideshow Freaks boards posted these (they arent Ada's I think their done by Jim Maddox):







    Im gonna try and get all 3 and get them painted by a pro, as my O'Neill looks a little George W for my liking !

    EDIT: Turns out these are from Lonnie at H2creative, he was commisioned by a client to produce them, however his agreement procluded making casts, he is asking the client if it is now possible to do so on my behalf

    For 40 USD the head would be unpainted and without a body. Just the head. Painted would cost 10 to 15 USD more per head.
    You need to get the body somewhere else. I would recommend ebay. But the prices vary from 10 USD to 40 USD depending on the body you choose. You could use a Hot Toys, a Dragon or a Sideshow body. They have the right neck joints to fit the head. Hot Toys are by far the most expensive bodies, but it always depends on what you want to do.

    I understand so clear. Send few links for shopping for headless bodies.

    (look out for hands, feet and heads, included heads can be swapped out remember, each body type is different and commands different prices on the bay) I personally recommend the Hot toys truetype (you can get caucasian,asian,black), as a new one in the box comes with spare hands, 2 neck posts and feet

    but searching for :

    did nude (cheapest an by far the easiest to come by - the image below doesnt show the standard DiD but its similar to the 10" Sideshow)

    hot toys nude

    sideshow nude or Art S buck

    bbi nude

    1/6 nude

    1/6 body

    and variations on all of the above

    This may also come in handy a thread discussing body types includes the following useful image for comparing scales and body builds, if you have any questions then Ill try to answer them, if I cant Ill post it in the SSF boards someone there will :

    Thanks, Mooncat.

    I think that "ACE Workshop" bodies are better for Doctors McKay and Beckett, beacuse they have beefs in their bodies than slim or superhero muscle body.

    Posted this PM "Private" (I know will take the post down if Thunderbird objects)

    post to me as I felt it relevant to the thread.

    I may consider putting my name down for a Beckett depending on the info, and or, the practical costs, and the quality of the likeness in the sculpt.

    Thanks,

    Thunderbird 2.


    OK an O'Neill recipe to give you a flavour

    first

    Contact Lonnie at http://www.h2creative.com/ tell him what your after headsculpt wise

    He has done alot - O'Neill, Tealc, (both been re-casted btw by a guy on ebay you look hard enough youll find him) and Carter (talks of a Jackson abound)

    Anyway rather than buy the recasts as I mistakenly did when I created mine (didnt realise these were re-casts from his originals) Ive since contacted Lonnie about this issue btw ask him for a 1st generation original cast

    Clothes can all be sourced online anything from £10 for a Jacket to £30

    Boots £3 - £15

    Pants £4 to £30 (pants or whole BDU's e.g pants and jacket)

    P90 - £5.00 - £20

    Staff weapon see Lonnie

    Zats see jwringo1 he is a member here:



    Unfortunately Lonnie isnt going to be able to quote for Beckett and McKay as he is bogged down with current commisions, so Im looking at other sculptors,

    He is available for castings and Sunohc with some provisos and work permitting might be up to the task.

    Or Chan Ada work schedule permitting and she can be a tad expensive for originated commisions, the more people signup the less the initial burden.

    mark at patches of pride for insignia £2 - £5 not much more

    The decision is do you get it painted or do you have a go yourself

    Well casts are relatively cheap about £10 - £15

    So you could buy a second and send it away for paint

    Or ask someones whose been posted on here Rollmyblues for instance who would probably do it for 3 beers and you pay postage

    Buy a stand - £5 - £10 or dont

    Buy a body £5 - £30 (I like Hot Toys narrow shouldered and slim 1/6 figures as they are well proportioned come with their own stand and 2 necks, 4 hands and you end up with a spare head which is a great sculpt and great paint.

    Or you can go for DiD (Dragon in Dreams) etc slightly cheaper

    Key word or ebay 1/6

    Theres gonna be some glueing and painting etc but thats half the fun of doing this stuff for me !

    So Beckett McKay etc, the more signup the less the initial burden so when we have a figure we can split it up . . think longterm 6 months to 12 months once you pay, sculpts done.

    By which time youve just finished piecing together 2 members of your SG1 team with all the parts for the other 2 waiting to be assembled.

    They arent cheap when you figure in all the elements, but these are long term take your time look on ebay get the right pants, find them at the right price

    Ebays great for this and if you use Auction Sniper its cheap enough to do

    Hell Ive got four sets of black tactical vests here you can have for next to nothing (ive posted them for sale on here)

    However you want screen accurate tactical vests you gotta fight customs and try and get the Version 2 Black Omega Tactical vests which when you factor in customs charges can get to like £35 per vest

    But you might be able to find em cheaper

    Its a long term project, but fun, find the best parts and theres gizillions of 1/6th from Hot Toys to G.I. Joe (old school and cheap parts) not Sideshows latest releases, this is G.I Joe today :

    http://www.sideshowtoy.com/



    I will post the reply on the thread as this stuff probably needs explaining for those thinking about it !

    This threads been running a while now . . numbers are picking up, this may help to explain whats involved and what you will get at the end !

    and get a few more signing up to split this burden, Ill contact sculptors anyone else familiar with this figure making process who knows a sculptor with past works on 1/6th heads feel free to throw them out there.




    and rest fingers . . . .





    Back to your original question about Sheppard

    My recipe

    Contact Chan Ada
    http://www.wantedactionfigure.com/shop.asp?p=8

    Get your BDU's from
    mazojedi (a new 1/6th costumer, unproven but working hard at it on some Season 1 BDU's) 35 - 40 Euros (working the 2nd prototype as we speak)

    If you want me to keep you in on the development process please PM me for pics

    P90 as I said above ebay £5 - £15

    Paint it yourself its great fun take your time and have multiple goes £10 - £15 for brushes and paint

    Or send it away for 3 - 12 months for 'professional paints' £30 - £50 (my advice ask Roll my Blues )

    Pair of boots £5

    Hot Toys narrow shouldered Truetype body - Stand, Figure, four sets of hands and 2 necks £30

    Tactical Vests

    I got my Omegas from

    http://www.vikingplayground.com/prod...?idCategory=65

    Combine your postage (well factor it in against buying it seperate)

    Then youll have what Ive got on my display cabinet shelf

    An email back from Ada (Chan Ada):

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi, original sculpt is US230 each to custom made.

    But if you can buy 25 copies, that means, either:
    Unpaint: US25 x25 = US625
    or
    Painted: US35x25 = US875
    then, there is no need to pay US230.

    If you have more question, pls let me know. Of course, if you are looking for much more copies, the price can be much much better than the above. Thanks!

    Ada.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So Im reading that as :

    Earthgate Ricky x 2 sets (4 heads)
    Mooncat x 1 set (2 heads)
    Roll my Blues x 1 set (2 heads)
    ifrack x 1 set (2 heads)
    mnfatz (OSW) x 1 set (2 heads)
    ironman1188 (OSW) x 1 set (2 heads)
    Thunderbird2 x 1 set (2 heads)
    Mazojedi x 1 set (2 heads)

    $230 origination and $25 a cast giving us the cost for 1 head split 9 ways :

    $50.55 per head

    So for 2 . . . Beckett and McKay $101.10

    I think we could get shipping in with that also !

    So whats everyone's thoughts on this ? afford one and not the other ? then a show of hands for which one you want produced if its still on the cards and we can still get a show of hands for 9 casts instead of 18 then so be it !!

    Ive not asked timeframes etc. will do that once we have a new show of hands

    Ok just had a 10th interested party in buying 11 Becketts and 9 Mckays

    Making the order:

    (Anonymous) x 1 set (2 Heads)
    Earthgate Ricky x 2 sets (4 heads Beckett and McKay)
    Mooncat x 1 set (2 heads Beckett and McKay)
    Roll my Blues x 1 set (2 heads Beckett and McKay)
    ifrack x 1 set (2 heads Beckett and McKay)
    mnfatz (OSW) x 1 set (2 heads Beckett and McKay)
    ironman1188 (OSW) x 1 set (2 heads Beckett and McKay)
    Thunderbird2 x 1 set (2 heads Beckett and McKay)
    Mazojedi x 1 set (2 heads Beckett and McKay)

    Theres a mix of McKay and Beckett so those that want both thats what Ive put down

    So heres the latest headcount the 20th December 2009 will be the last headcount for this project before we spend some monies.

    The deal is this

    Chan Ada will be commissioned to produce 2 x 1/6th scale headsculpts
    We will supply reference imagery to Ada for her to produce the headsculpts over a 6 month period (to be confirmed). She will produce the headsculpts giving us the opportunity to have our say on the likeness and any features we want changed throughout the process with weekly updates. Using this thread. (duration and periodical updates to be confirmed)

    We will give a deposit (to Ada for this work) and the outstanding amount on completion.

    I will hold all monies if we dont hit the magical figure of 2 heads paid for then I will refund any monies paid to me (within 12 days) of their original payment date (less any paypal transaction fees)

    To generate the heads we need $460 so Im asking for everyone to pay

    $46 dollars deposit for 2 heads (thats for the generation of the head only) you then would pay $50 for 2 casts, thats 2 Becketts, 2 Mckays or a mix thats down to you at the end of the commission process) after 6 months

    So to generate something that's not been produced before in the history of Mankind a piece of Stargate Fandom Lore . . .

    for just the meagre amount of $96 you can have 2 bespoke custom



    heads, The BDU's are being developed




    These are pictures of the first prototype, the latest prototype is color matched to Sheppards BDU from Season 1, with alterations to the 'inside cut' of the front panels, rather than outside, and tweaks to the diameter of the sleeves.

    Im coming looking for payments from the 10 people listed above. Between 21st December 2009 and 3rd January 2010. If anyone else wants to join their names to that list leave a post under this one, the deadline for this will be the 21st December, if we can make it cheaper per head for everyone then on the 20th of December I will post the new figure required on this thread. But atm the head count is $46 !! on the 21st !!

    Expect PM's this week !! For those worried please ask some of the members on these boards for their experience of me. Im Genuine and a 1/6th Collector:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/bluesta...7619159777439/

    For those who simply cant afford to get on board and have already signed up

    can you post your withdrawl, so that your names not counted in the final figure request on the 20th

    Also please check the lists to show the information for you, quantities, which heads, etc are correct.
