I have been trying to sell that Emperor Palpatine for a while now on another forum... It's still available if you want it... I was going for $80 shipped for the figure, stand, lightsaber, holocron and extra hands.It's a badass figure too, he was FUN to paintup too... anything evil is...

Thanks guys, I'm surprised that I am able to do what I can... it's only be 2 years nce my first paintjob!

And Dren... it depends.

If there is a head available on the market that suits my purpose, I use that one.

But if it's something that cannot be found at all... such as Myers or Jason, or any other for that matter... I will modify an existing head or do one from scratch.Every item is attacked on a case by case bas.

In the planning stages, I will pick a character and start researching the stores I know for parts that could be used.

If it's a figure from a movie or something, I will check to see if there are any heads out there that have the actors likeness or at least resemble them.

If I can't find all the parts, like a coat that is unique or something along those lines.. I have to either fabricate it or have it made by a tailor.

This can make a figure more expenve, but also more unique and beautiful.So once I have all of that sorted out, I will build up a prototype and figure out if it's something I want to recreate or whether I actually COULD recreate it.

I calculate the costs of the parts, plus my painting and building fee and that is how I come up with the prices.

It's a complicated process, but fun when you finish a prototype and do it well.
