Very cool Andy!  I'll be using him as a Dusk Realm Warrior, I think.

Will you be having another pose or two sculpted, or will this figure be a one-off?

Nice proxy for Dark Legion partisans or maybe for some ganger types who sold their souls to the Dark Legion and live in the undercity beneath Luna City

I saw this fig on TMP. would make a nice proxy for Sons of Rasputin Bolsheviks. They have a crossed over to the Dark Side and Soviet look all rolled into one bad ass winter trooper. Especially if we could get the guy to make a second pose for variety. The guy who made it is offering it for sale including production rights. I am distribution of figs but if one of our production specialist would pic it up it would rock. I don't have a way to produce it but if one of our experts would check into it I might be able to invest a small amount in  return for a free squad or so when production beigns.

Me? I'm just a guy who buys lots of figs and offers them to my fellow forumites. I am in no way a business like you, Andy, and Josh - no matter how much crap I talk here about being a Trading Company. As for the green, I point it out because it is a nice green that could be used as a proxy and it would be nice to have it in the family. I  don't know enough about it to take point and hoped one of you pros would look it over and make a deal for it and if possible a second pose. If one of you wants to produce it I would like to talk to that guy about maybe helping out with the cost.

You want to see me be a tease Josh just keep it up and I'll show up in my "tease outfit" at Talamania. Think it might ruin the event if I showed up in a leather mni and 5 inch stilletto heels?  :o  ;D

That's part of my prison collection. I could describe the rest but I think I am one of the guys who's supposed to keep it safe for families around here.  :o  8)

I only expect masherking (Steve Garcia) to show up at Talamania dressed as Mr. Jingles from Spinespur.  Upon thinking, I'm'a shut up now.

Let's hope Andy Coleman can steer this thread back to sanity.
