Even though I stopped taking commission for the most part I still had a few to finish up from an old client.
Being that they are commissions that are just OOB or repaints I didn’t really have much to post when it came to WIP’s which was the reason for so few updates. Also I really want to redesign the site but too much integrated plugins have kept me from investing the time to try to build a new one. I’m hoping when I am back to posting my own personal builds the incentive to redesign will be strong enough that I will focus more time on it.
For now there will be some commission and figure customizing posts coming up.
Got some stuff to sell.
They are all on eBay but If your interested in shipping internationally or doing a local pickup in the NYC area contact me.
I am selling the 1/100 RE GP04 I entered for the HLJ contest.
I’m still selling the Custom Iron Fist Marvel Legend figure.
I’m selling some extra Gundam Converge figures from the recent Converge 10 set.
As mentioned on the sidebar there was a day or two of downtime but that issue has been resolved and things should be working fine.
I also managed to have a hard drive die so that resulted in some delays to posts on here.
Besides that I wanted to showcase my eBay sales, specifically my Gundam Converge and Gashapon that I recently added to the sales page. Since Bandai has decided to stop distributing Converge to the US I have to order it from Japan and that means I usually have to buy a box set. With the box sets I will have leftovers so I should have a stream of Converge figures added to the sales page every other month or so.
If your interested in Gundam Converge figures check out the sales page every now and then.
Recently mvm3897 uploaded a video about commissions and I really wanted to link to it here. If you don’t know mvm3897 is basically one of the oldest and most respected gunpla/gundam resin builders in the western community and has been doing commissions for some time. Considering the gunpla community in the west is small compared to the east the amount of people doing commissions is so small that I never could get a good understanding of the going rate for most and even more importantly where to find clients willing to pay that amount.
I want people to see this and understand that not only that commissions go for a good amount of money but that you get what you pay for. Too many times have I seen people back out when I gave them VERY low figures for the work they are asking for. As I have started doing commissions more and more I have let this slide less and less and have refused commissions that I would have taken a year or more ago. Right now I will maintain my rate but I have always felt like it is too low and will eventually raise it.
Some money I was counting on to come in evaporated into thin air so now I’m back trying to sell a few things.
I have also started to consider doing commissions again.

The prices don’t include shipping and I am open to shipping internationally or local pickup in the NYC area. I might eventually put some of these on eBay but for now you can contact me at my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or PM me at the gunpla sub reddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/gunpla) where I will also be selling these in the commerce thread.
