Well, since I finally have moved into my new house, I thought I'd start this thread off, as I'll slowly be getting all of my items from my collection out an on display. For now, this big boy came in and man.. is he a showstopper.
I'm in love.
He's over 6 feet tall with his spikey hair. Very lightweight, as he's made of resin, but also incredibly sturdy. I also commissioned a 1/1 Bardock from the same artist which is now underway. They say they think it can be done by Christmas!
Damn that's awesome! I'm jealous, I can only imagine having a 17 or 18 that size!!
Thanks!!! I think he's awesome! I posted all the unboxing videos on the FB Group - DBZ Collectors United. So far, the response has been like mine, just WOW. He's so much better in person even. Only had one person so far say "He doesn't look like much." Lol.
If I could have a Goku, Vegeta, Trunks, and Bardock... and Kid Goku, I'd be happy.
I'm debating getting that large scale Kid Gohan resin that was floating around! But he's not in scale with this Goku. SaveSaveSaveSave
How much exactly did you end up paying for it? I know you didn't say on Facebook, but not sure why. I assume around $2000?
If I was to have a lifesize DBZ character, I think I'd probably choose Puar.
Haha, he is huge!
Yeah, I didn't want to say on there because I feel it's doing a disservice to the artist. They have a best offer price of $5000 for him, and if I announce my offer that they accepted publicly, then they could lose out on potential offers much higher than mine. As an artist myself, I understand how hard it is to get people to appreciate and pay for your work, so I wanted to try to keep my accepted best offer private. BUT... even though this is "public," it's as public as the Facebook group, sooooo.. I offered $1500 plus shipping for this Goku, and he accepted my offer. In total, I paid $2100 for him. I think it's a great deal compared to the prices of most resins these days.
That was a wonderful deal then!! Will your Bardock be the same price, or is he charging more since it is a commission?
Bardock is much more because it's a commission. I'm saving a bit because he can reuse potentially the hair, and maybe the face to a point. But yeah, Bardock is twice the price.. BUT, I'm SO excited and I know it will be worth it because this Goku is just amazing. I wish I could do him justice with my photos / videos.
I've been out of the loop for a while didn't know you joined fourm! What's the story behind the customs?
Not much of a story other than... once you get one custom, you can't stop!! My favorite customizer is Ferrytale Customs. I wish I could just put him on a retainer. He made the main custom Bardock for me (my version of Bardock), the Time Breaker Bardock, and that Saiyajin OC character with the battle damaged armor and blue pants (which I turned into a Bardock with a spare head he made for me). The Time Breaker Vegeta and the God of Destruction Goku were both made by a friend of mine on Instagram. I didn't commission them, he just was selling them so I snatched them up.
great collection, I love seeing every ones customs.
Thanks!!! Yes.. customs seriously make a collection, I think. My wishlist customs right now are Yardrat Goku, Raditz, Turles, Gine, Toma, Seripa, Future Trunks from the Broly Movie.. I think, the one with his long hair and ripped jacket
