OK wasteland warriors
FINALLY got the permission to release info on the creator and the resin kit of Furiosa. ( funny how money works)


FROM ME:
Hello
Rich here.
I had e-mailed you a few times about using your pix but never heard from you.

SO I'm sending this PM as a final contact and will figure if there is no reply you just don't want bothered.
I understand that and won't further bother you if you do not reply to this.

I had one more question?
Since you had mentioned you were done making these to move on.
Would you be interested in selling me the molds so I can cast a few more to sell?

If so please let me know and let me know price.
Have a good day.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The stranded robots reply:
SO here is the release info
hey- sorry i could have sworn i emailed you. you can link my website photos-no problem. I think I'm going to hold onto my molds for now. i just forwarded my email .
Kevin
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

OK so now that I have permission and he is willing to cast more to sell.
HAVE AT IT GUYS..................................
Pix of a paint up on his site and he has offed in a E-mail to get more pix if needed.

****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Sorry for all the secrecy and delay but rest assured I was working on getting contact info for public consumption or purchasing the molds/sculpt. Since I resell for and live really really close to GEOmetrics getting the molds would have been doable and perfect.

Just remember this: I never sell out anyone and that means I don't steal others work/content or use photo's/content without permission.

Thanks!

Direct link for anyone who wants to skip scrolling through ;)

Also, totally understand respecting people's wishes - so many people don't respect that these days!

EDIT: Looks good painted, some bits could do with matt laquer and / or an ink wash to show the detail or add depth ... but it's been a long time since I did any model painting so it's streets ahead of what I could actually achieve, lol

I know I Know.
Didn't I mention somewhere that I bought the last one and he did't have any interest in doing more.
He took all that down when he stopped production of the kits.

I think I can talk him into it with three (3) pre-orders for the kit.

In other words I'm trying to talk him into it and make it worth his time so stall/stop another project to do some casting.

When your business is a one person act it becomes NO FUN to do the same thing over and over.

It's cool, man!
found him on Facebook, he's under Kevin jones and he replied to my message immediately.

He had these replies to some of my questions -

"Hey - thank you for asking. 100 for an unassembled unpainted kit. Plus shipping. I currently don't have a complete kit but can certainly get some more resin.

If anyone asks they can find me via Facebook or by km79jones@gmail.com. also on instagram as kjonesthemighty

Also for what it's worth on my Etsy store thestrandedrobot , I have a painted and assembled one for 300. I only painted two and sold one

I'll try to have this cast by the end of the weekend. I will probably need to make a run to smooth on to get some more resin but hopefully I can do that tomorrow"

Yes he is.
Anyone on the fence with this should jump down on the side of "order one"

These won't be cast forever like some kits, and with the extreme low numbers once it's gone good luck, I don't see anyone that bought this selling any time soon.

You will be left dull and tarnished instead of shiny & chrome.

Can't wait to see your build up Rockatansky since I'm sure you will be done with yours before I even start mine.

I have like 5 kit's on the bench now and just scored another few grail kits, ( Mad Max and aliens stuff) so as it stands I've got more unbuilt, NIB on the shelf, and started kits, then I do complete at the moment.

Took me over 10 weeks to do my last GK kit and I haven't touched a model since last Sunday the 14th. So I'm slow on the progress.

I'm really glad the guys that want these are able to get them. I put alot of time into getting a hold of thestrandedrobot. Not jut for myself but for others.

And don't forget, guys, if you're not a builder like me and Root, you can buy them all assembled and painted for $300.

I think it'll take a while to get mine sorted, i've got a couple of Interceptors to get through yet.
A ton of Non - Mad Max kits too, though this one will be special and will go well with the Japanese Fury Road Max figure i ordered last week.
