New dolls, armor, and heads on Etsy!

Hey guys!

Updates are here:

Like I said before, I'm going to be casting my latest doll, Lagoon.  In order to bankroll her production, I'm having a fire sale.  I've rounded up all the junk parts I can and made a few casts from my ruined resin stash.  All proceeds are going to Lagoon.

In turn, i have a few questions for you guys.

Would you rather I continue to list my dolls on Etsy as a first come first serve basis, or switch to auctions on ebay?  I've had a few complaints that people are getting frustrated trying to grab the dolls before they sell out.  The weather is warming up and drying out and hopefully I can start doing some good quality casts soon.  These will run probably around $300 base price.


After Lagoon is cast, I will use the money from her to pay for the molding and casting of Gamma.  He will finally, fingers crossed here, get pro-cast.  I still worry that he's jinxed and can't be cast!  So "Lord willing and the creek don't rise," in about 4-6 months there will hopefully be a pre-order where you can get the doll.  Unfortunately, since they will be a custom color(Probably white, grey or blue depending on what the company can do), they will cost a little more than my personal casts, probably around $350-400... at that point I will stop producing the boys myself and they will only be available through ordering periods.

Give me your opinions, please.  Just send me an email to batchix at gmail dot com or leave a message here.  It's important to me to know what you think!

still trying to release some machina girls and the mini-machinas sometime!  Still working on the little goobers!

Three Machina Gammas up for sale on Etsy!

I've got three imperfect casts up for sale on my etsy! :D  Man, it took me forever to get these guys together.  i kept stringing them wrong.  I'd only gotten a few hours of sleep the other night so I blame that.  Anyway, thanks so much!

In other exciting news... I'm looking into getting Lagoon pro-cast!  She'll be the guinea pig and depending on how that goes i may get the machinas done as well. :D

the reason she's going first is many fold.

First off she's a more traditional doll, just a girl not a robot.  She's also got the least amount of work required for me to get her ready to be cast, just some basic cleaning.  Third is she hasn't been cast by anyone but me before.  I had so much trouble trying to get Gamma done that I decided to hold on to him for a bit before I send him out into the world again.  I guess it feels like he got a bit jinxed.  Last is that I feel like a machina  with a lot of imperfections still has potential to be a finished since you can dye, paint or play with a dinged up robot.  Not so for a little girl!

At any rate, I'll keep everyone posted about how it goes!  I'm extremely excited!
