RPG-7

Post by Commander Lukas on Tue Aug 18, 2009 2:04 am

I will cast and sell this, but not now. Razz
It's a Rpg7 I hand made using a action figure rpg and lego.

Woah... very nice! Scale looks good and it looks really awesome (albeit I don't know what the real one looks like).

I think the handle part was very well done, I might buy it if you do cast and sell. Smile

$4-5.99 USD.

Come on, don't be cheap. You worked hard on it! If anyone's stupid enough to buy it at such a high price, let them! Besides, it's a new release. It is very nice, by the way. The coloring is indeed accurate.

I think that's a tab bit to much. Three fifty? Yes that'll do.

I'm asking what you are going to use to cast it. I've been wanting to cast stuff for awhile now...

I know! It's beautiful!

Nah, do 4.49.

In all sincerity Lukas, don't price it at what you think it's worth. That's the mistake all too many amateur custom-makers/sellers make. Add up how much it cost you to make the RPG, and then add on an extra dollar or so. Such is the way of profit.

Plus, you get to add shipping costs. It all adds up. Razz

Although, I would think that $3 minimum would be good to be set at least. Depending on the quantity of what you have such as 4 (random number) then raise the price to $4 or $4.50. Now if you had 20 of these, then lower the price to $3.50. Lets just say this if scarce then sell high if a you have tons then sell at $3.50. That is the way you want to think on demand and such. Wink Although try to get a minimum pricing range set first.

Just remember that when you decide the shipping costs, it should also cover what it cost YOU to buy the shipping material, plus a little extra. Wink

Well, that looks quite nice. The coloration is decent, the shape is admirable, it's flawlessly seamed with the Lego elements.

Bravo! You might just get some customers, with this one Wink . Brickarms has not a thing on that!

Whoa. Very nice, Lukas. For the pricing, I'd have to agree with 80-0. None of those is on the market now, so I'd charge around $3.50-$4.00, and perhaps give a discount when someone buys so many.

BA sells them for only $1 so you'd be crazy to buy this for $4.

BA sells the RPG2 not the RPG7. The RPG7 is much better then the RPG2.

What would prefer?

RPG 2

Yea but still... Even if I need an RPG7 I would still buy a slightly different, way cheaper and better quality (Not saying yours are bad quality, but BA has a professional plastic injection machine) RPG.

I still think mine is a bit better.

If you don't care if you minifigs stand 20 feet(centimeters) away form the enemy tank becuase he can't see any farther with a RPG2, insead of standing much farther back, it's not my problem.

If you don't want too buy one, be my gest. Razz










But do you like it? Razz

I never said I didn't like it, it's very good but isn't it basically an action figure RPG made for minifig-use? Also 20 feet is a lot more than 20 cm. Razz Each foot is about 30 cm, so 30 feet = 20x30=600 cm=6 meters. Wink

Hola Wow! Math...
