I don’t own this one…

The collectible statue business is no joke. This bad boy, for example, will put you back upwards of $700.

It’s big, it’s some kind of resin, it’s beautifully handpainted and it’s in an edition of less than a thousand.

Is this the tippy top of the collectible statue market? No idea. Too rich for my blood. I wonder how much of the price is licensing rights from the intellectual property owners…?

Have a good weekend, y’awl.

72 lbs? OMG.

Here’s a mech model from a Japanese company. I don’t know if there are MORE expensive ones.

$348 roughly depending on the exchange rate Yen/Dollars.

Not in my buying plan.

Whew. I can’t afford that for a hobby.
But I am mildly interested in how many ancient cultures have dragons in their lore, if anyone can recommend a scholarly book on the subject.

I’ve spent over $700 on a bronze frog sculpture so who am I to side-eye what people buy? Hell, it’s not even close to weighing 72 pounds.

Too rich for my blood.

Which is why you shd be making something similar and selling them for big bucks. Doesnt Uncle B deserve to be supported in a style he is not accustomed to?

One of my friends in Singapore has every first edition Transformer in the original packaging.

He’s obviously a discerning and smart guy Mr. Dave.

I’ve never been big into “collecting”. That’s the legacy of 20 moves with my military parents by the time I was 19. My in-laws “collect.” Hoard would be the more appropriate term. The husband’s parents and siblings all live in miserable shacks that are stuffed with stuff. My own siblings quit moving when they got married and are approaching hoarding status. My husband and I have moved 10 times in the 34 years we’ve been married…we run a lean and mean household. We will move to FL in about 2 years and anticipate another 2-3 moves after that.

My husband assigns great value to objects. I do not. It’s frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, I have things that are important to me – I’m still upset that the maid broke my Nike of Samothrace statue that had gone everywhere with me for my entire adult life – but in general, I think less is very definitely more when it comes to “stuff”.

That Geralt statue is pretty cool though 🙂

Pupster – because, this is the first world! We has the money and we wants the stuff!

Now, a nice seasoned Wagner 12 inch cast iron fry pan, or a good sized canvas wall tent….now you’re talking.

Course I doubt this one is seasoned with oinker polish, but you can’t have everything can you.

Sideshow makes some things that cost many thousands of dollars. They look very nice. I’d rather buy a car or house if I had the spare moolah.
