    Custom Recasts of Rare MOTU Rubber figures

    Hello, my name is Eric and I have been casting my own figures for many years. I recently was able to come across some very rare and hard to find Masters of the Universe keshi (Rubber figures) from japan. My initial post talking about them you can see HERE. They are the same scale as M.U.S.C.L.E.s and most rubber figures from the 80s, 1.75"-2" tall.

    I have 7 of the 12 and will be recasting them and selling them in my Online Store. I will be releasing two at a time, starting with Battle Armor He-Man and Man-at-Arms. They are $30 for both, and I will be adding singles later on for $15 each.

    They are in my store now, but only available for Pre-Order. The first run will consist of 25 Flesh, 15 Green, and 15 Light Blue of each. They will start shipping in 2 weeks.

    No, I am located in Southern California.

    Domestic Shipping for one set will be $2.50 + $.50 for each additional item (Regular mail) or $6 (Priority) flate rate (+ $0 each additional item).

    International shipping is $6.75 + $.75 for each additional item.

    Pre-order is now open in my store.

    Awesome! I just bought a Green set

    When will Wave 2 go up for Pre-Order? I don't want to miss out.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Not sure what happened there, did you accidentally add multiple sets? My order came out to 32.50

    Is it possible to get them in different colors? I mean like He-Man in the flesh, but Man-At-Arms in the green?

    It'd be super cool to see a set of these painted up...

    I was planning ahead for the other figures. Isn't it $30 for the first two?

    I went ahead and paid for a flesh colored set. Looking forward to these and the rest!

    Now to decide whether to detach their weapons and put them in their hands or not...I'm thinking yes.

    Wave-2 will come out this time next month, so around the 25th-27th. I cast up other figures as well during the month so I have to leave time to cast my normal figures.

    haha yeah if you put it that way it comes out to that over the next couple months. The $30 is for the first 2.

    No sorry, just doing both figures at the moment. I will be releasing single figures next month, so at that time you can pick up these guys in different colors each.

    Cool! Alrighty, I think I may wait. I like the idea of some of them being different from the others, like Man-At-Arms being green. Thanks again for doing this!

    Yesterday I preordered a set in flesh!

    A few questions my friend:

    Have you worked out a deal with your friend for the remaining figures (you don't have) to be cast at some point? Just curious!

    If not will the 7th figure be available by itself one month or will one month have 3 figures available (as you are offering 2 at a time currently)

    Also will the colors of flesh, blue, & green be the color waves on all of the recasts going forward for the reminder of the line?

    Thanks!

    Will you be updating this thread and/or the marketplace thread when new sets/singles become available?

    I have talked to my friend but he is skeptical/ scared to to mail them for me to use. He doesnt want to lose them in the mail. Im still working on him so hopefully I can work something out.

    Since i have 7 I will be releasing the last 3 together instead of just the one alone. Unless I can get some of the figures i need, then i will be continuing with 2 figures a month.

    Each release will have specific colors available at first for the pairs. Most colors will be available for each figure as singles though. Since I am casting these months apart, when i release the same colors later on, they might now match exactly with the earlier releases since I am custom mixing each color each time I cast these up. So an original green might not match exactly on a later released green.

    The next figures to be released are Fisto and Jitsu, so the colors are gonna be Flesh, Gold, and Silver.

    and yeah I will be updating this thread when I start doing singles. Once I start doing singles the colors they will be all assorted colors, not just the original released colors as singles.

    I'd like to hear if other buyers are going to separate the weapons or not. I think I will.

    No problem. I was just wondering.

    Also, will you be doing any more of the Muscles of the Universe? I would be very interested in them also.

    Sorry I didn't clarify...I was wondering if you will be re-casting the Muscles of the Universe He-Man, Fisto, Skeletor, and Beast Man (that you are sold out of) because I am very interested in getting a set?

    As far as future Muscles of the Universe, I would love anything, but especially Ram Man, Whiplash, Buzz-Off, Mer-Man, Sy-Klone, Man-At-Arms, Trap Jaw, and Mekaneck.
