I'll be interested when this comes to fruition. Cool project. I don't know which I like more, this or your Glaive project!

I like the idea, but a bronze cast would eliminate the possibility of glass eyes. Ultimately I’m fine with whatever you decide. I have sskunky’s hollow resin version, so I’d welcome a bronze version also.

UPDATE:

So, what do you guys think about this being a metal "Bronze" casting that is "Gold-Plated"?...

If it were bronze it wouldn't have to be solid cast right? I mean a bag of sand only weighs so much. I imagine if it's possible a roto cast in bronze leaving the possibility for eyes?

If RM is considering bronze with glass eyes, then that would be the best of both worlds.

I think that would be amazing! Good weight too! But, don't kill yourself doing it. Your cast/sculpt is spot on with the original! I would buy the resin cast AND the gold plated if I could. (Hero - Resin w/ eyes and gold painted) (Stunt - Bronze (gold plated) w/ no eyes) So, whatever you decide. Just know, these are going to be flying off the shelves.

Old fashioned copper/tin bronze or aluminium/copper bronze? The latter should last a hella lot longer :p
As alreeady asked, would it still come with glass eyes??

So are you saying the previous idea will be replaced with the bronze/gold casting, or will this be available along with the previous version?

Also, how much is the cost?
This sounds much pricier than the previous idea.

I'm just throwing out another possible option, but there's quite a huge demand for the glass eye version, which won't be possible with the metal casting. So, I won't be doing the metal version any time soon.

I'm just going to go ahead and do the resin first, and maybe do a metal one later. Like you guys mentioned, you want the glass eyes, and this won't be possible with the metal version.

I'm working with getting this off the back burner and will keep you guys updated! :cool: (y)
Hi RM,

I'm ok with either. It might be easier to start the bronze cast first. Let everyone see the quality of the first casts and work up to the one with eyes. I imagine the one with eyes will have more assembly labor involved.

Depending on costs I would probably be up for both.

I'd be interested in both a resin and a metal version.
