    Edit - 6/15 Orders have been taken, and sent to the factory. Run's closed ladies and gents!

    Edit - 6/8 Paying deposit on run later today

    Edit - 6/4 Added a cut off date for the run.



    [​IMG]

    I've finally heard back from the factory and gotten everything worked out. A few prices have changed, but it's nothing major so we are now officially looking at a crystal run!

    Here's the various types (using an amazing pic from a previous thread)
    [​IMG]

    And here's where they came from :
    [​IMG]

    So, who's up for some crystals? Should be available in any color, but I might need to check on red. Green, clear, light blue, blue, black are all color options you can choose from.

    Prices!
    Jor El - 70$
    Fortress - 65$
    Brando - 60$
    Donner - 50$
    Returns - 70$

    OMG 1/6th SCALE RETURNS CRYSTALS!!!!! MADE OF CRYSTAL!!! HOLY CRAP!!!
    Yes, we are going to have the option to order HAND CUT 1/6th scale Returns crystals! Also, we are going to be able to order RANDOMLY FACETED Returns sized designs so you can have a lot of display crystals WITHOUT having em all look the same!

    Mini Returns - 20$
    Mini Returns (random) - 18$
    If you want a color (like green or red or blue or something) IN THE MINI RETURNS DESIGN please add 2$ to that. We get a price break if we go over 20 pieces, so the more you order the cheaper it gets for em!


    Orders!
    1: Stieller - 1 brando , 1 Jor el - Both clear! (paid)
    2: Kryptoknight - 1 Jor-El, 1 Returns, and 1 Fortress, all clear; and 1 Brando, green (paid)
    3: HowMuch - 1 donner (green), 1 Jor El (clear) (paid)
    4: bullitt - 1 fortress (clear), 1 donner (green) (paid)
    5: jason - 1 brando (green), 1 Donner, 1 Returns, 1 Brando, 2 Fortress, 1 Jor-El (all in clear) (paid <owed order>)
    6: Zalaian 1 Fortress, 1 X Returns (both clear) (paid)
    7: ALLEY - 1 brando (green), 1 fortress (clear) (paid)
    8: Stoney - 1 returns (clear) (paid)

    18: jay1138 - 1 brando (green) (paid)
    19: Duaneo - 1 fortress (clear), 1 returns (clear), 1 donner (green) (paid)
    20: J. Johnson (email) - 1 brando (green) (paid)

    Ready to take payments, probably gonna keep the run open for a week or two, maybe longer if there's enough interest. Next run is going to be near Christmas time.

    I take paypal, and google wallet, cash, money orders, gold bullion, souls, but I draw the line at first borns cause I really hate changing diapers.

    If you send the payment via paypal, please send it as a regular payment with an address attached, and that way I can easily get your shipping figured out when they come in. Only the crystal payment is due now, shipping won't be needed until it's in a box and ready to head out!

    Paypal is rpfer@cox.net and PLEASE PUT THE CRYSTAL DESIGNS YOU WANT AND COLORS IN THE NOTES AREA. I can always edit the order, but once it's been placed I can't alter it, so let's get it right the first time :)

    Any questions, feel free to ask!

    Thanks!
    Chris

    Chris, Can you please post the largest width of each crystal? I'd like to get some clear acrylic tubing for mine, but don't know what tube ID will fit each crystal with a minimum of slop. I'm sure others would love to have this info as well for their crystal displays.

    Thanks!

    I don't have any of the replicas at the moment actually, except for a returns and a donner. I'll get those measurements later today though.

    I am planning on ordering a "complete set" for myself, so worst case I'll be able to tell you as soon as I get em in hand :)

    Gotta track down where I put the blueprints on whatever backup I did a while back :lol

    Re: Superman Crystal run! YAY!!!! Who's up for something shiny? INCLUDING 1/6TH SCALE

    Nah, we can do random designs on the facets so they can look different, and even do colors for some variation, but frankly the issue is the overall size. The other designs are way too thin/tiny to be safely made at that scale. The brando would snap like a twig under the slightest pressure. Same goes for the donner.

    Can do :)

    Yup, ordering is open until it's not, by which I mean you can order till the thread's closed. I'll give plenty of heads up about the upcoming deadline. Basically it'll be probably either a few weeks or a month before I stop taking orders. Once I send the order off, that's when it's officially too late to place an order.

    You have a while :)

    Thanks!

    Hi there, I have tubes with inner diamiter of 43mm for the Jor-El and Returns crystals, theres a small amount of wiggle room. I find that size is perfect for these two larger crystals.

    Nah, it's a popular design :)

    REALLY surprised no one's gone for the 1/6th scale stuff.

    Nah, 50$ is fine.

    The 2$ extra fee is for the 1/6th scale returns designs (which, again, I am stunned has no takers).

    Can you put me down for a fortress in green and would that be $67 or $65?

    Can do :)

    It'd be 65. Again the 2$ fee is only for the mini returns designs. If you guys wanted a 1/6th scale crystal for your 1/6th scale figures to use, I'd have to charge you more for a colored one, but as far as the 1:1 scale stuff it's all the same price.

    With the flash on.

    It's a pretty dark blue color, but the light blue is more of a grey color where you can see sort of a neon color on the facets. Check out my video on youtube about the rupees I had done. Here's a link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noHQKklp68k or my arrowheads I did - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-h0yEhxIWL8

    Both videos show off the color of the light blue pretty well.

    I've emailed the factory about the crystals back when the episode aired. I'm hoping to hear back from their design guy soon. With luck it's something they can do by hand instead of by a mold.

    Re: Superman Crystal run! Payments due by 6/15! Get your shiny on!

    HOPEFULLY, about a month to get em in, boxed and out the door, total. This is best case scenario planning.

    REALISTICALLY, the factory is about to be crazy busy but I just threw down a 2000$ deposit to hold my place in line (as to not get shunted to the side when a 500000 piece order come in), so probably a month to have em finished up and then shipped to me. It'll take me a couple of days to pack and get the quotes ready to go.

    Depending on the shipping you choose, I'd say it's a very safe bet to have everyone have the orders in hand by the end of August, even the overseas guys.
