Really surprised at how few parts there are, I honestly thought the pieces would have been broken down into smaller bits.

If all goes well, then next payday I should be able to pay at least 100 towards one of these little beauties.

Edit...  Thinking on it, would it be possible to break it down any further?  

If you could make it into smaller pieces it might help with the casting.

And lets face it... There's no way in hell it's a figure for a novice to put together, so I wouldn't have thought that a large number of bits would be a problem for most of the people buying one.

But, as you're not stupid, you've probably already put thought into that, so just ignore my ramblings.

Why!??!  :crazy:  For the love of God Andy, don't chuck in more stuff with the dragon, it's only adding to your loss. The dragon is more than enough.  Trust me! Its already unique!!!  If people choose to pay more, then leave it at that. It defeats the object of people trying to help you  :roll:

I would much rather you spend any spare cash/time (stuff you don't seem to have anyway) on getting more figures out so I can buy more things off of you then you wasting time giving me something extra with the dragon.

EDIT: How about a fantasy fighter, which whilst standing on it's own right might just happen to look the dogs danglies with the dragon....  :whistle:

Right. Just looked at the bank account and it is not good.   :blub:

However, I fixed a laptop for a mate and they are going to pay me 25 for the time and effort, so I can say that by the end of the month, I should have at least another 25 to add towards the 100 I paid. Not much, I know but it's the best i can do at present. I am simply not prepared to buy something off of Andy where he is making a loss, so will do what I can.

This dragon is simply amazing and is definitely worth 200, so anything I can do to try and make it up towards that, I will.

Andy, don't give anything away to people who give you extra money. It kinda defeats the object of giving you more doesn't it? Just like Toosh and others have said. We want you to make some money out of this damn lizard!   :silly

Agreed! I'll add my voice to those saying no extras, the Dragon is already amazing enough as it is. I'll be kicking some more pounds towards my 100pound dragon. With the current exchange rate, it would be a crime not to. :) (personal opinion expressed, not meant as a criticism of anyone in any way shape or form)

Thanks to everybody who is chipping in with some extra cash, you have no idea how touched I feel. In a good touchy way, not a Bad Touch way. :tears:  :notworthy:

Going to have to do a bit of chopping on the dragon parts for the next set of moulds in order to get the rubber costs down, particularly on the tail. At the minute there's a couple of grands worth of rubber and labour in them, and if I only get 30 or 40 castings per mould, that's waaaay too much extra cost per dragon. Ian is going to mark one of the sets of test castings with suggested cut lines for me to make things faster, easier and cheaper for next set.

Will post pics of the castings as they are now, when they arrive tomorrow. And the first fully assembled resin one! Exciting!


God I hope it fits together...
