Our Hero

I'm going to be adding a Ron Paul hero character to my game, and I'd love to get some opinions on

This Sample Figure

I'm open to any feedback, but two specific questions I have are:

- I'm not sure I like his mouth being open. The image in the lower left corner is of an expression that might be better?

- All the armor makes him look kinda stocky. Maybe we eliminate the gauntlets, shoulder pieces, and/or shin guards? (Would someone who declines Secret Service protection wear all that armor?)

(Yes, this is the game Dungeoneers where you can Slay a Dragon for Ron Paul to raise $5 in Super Brochures. I guess when we add this character, Dr. Paul can slay a dragon for himself!)

RONBO, from the last election? That would make a great piece.

Wow, that's small work.

Will you be making more. How long does it take to make one. I assume it's molded.

If he were smiling it would look more like Dr. Paul.

It's scuplted, then molded.

I only really need one for the game, but I may make a bunch of them to sell or give away as prizes. Kinda depends if anyone wants them.

Since you asked, here's the process by which these mini's are made:

Spin casting

The investment includes a sculptor to produce artwork. Copies of the sculpture are created in epoxy. The epoxy clones are use to create a multiple cavity rubber mold.

12up mold makes an estimated 1200 standard characters.

What'ts the retail range for standard 1-piece figures?

Dr. Paul talked about Protecting property rights and privacy and studying history I understood the proper use of the Deathly Hallows.
Are you familiar with that story?

Retail for a single figure is

Retail for a single figure is about $6.

The only Deathly Hallows story I know of is from Harry Potter. You have me intrigued!

Smiles

Turn Gaunt's Ring three and spend the afternoon with Issac Newton or Benjamin Franklin.

1200 units x $6 = $7200

Subtract production costs and sales commissions.

You can't see the shield, but it has a peace sign design.
