And they are only for the larger parts, the smaller assemblys like shoulders etc are done by eye, no plans.
Rolling Thunder hit the nail on the head, making these for someone else would be no fun, i'd be freaking out about the time it took and the quality of the finished product, and if i were to factor in cost of materiel and time, i'd be worried i was charging way too much for a wooden toy.
Even if i were to say charge 100 US for one, thats an insane amount of money to pay for a wooden toy, but at the same time would translate out to about a dollar an hour for my time.
Its a real pity because i would love to be able to cheaply mass produce these for others to enjoy.
If a toy company were to ever approach me and say you build the prototypes, we'll mass produce them, I would say yes without hesitation
I understand the reason, the same goes with me for writing or doing anything in a game (such as building in minecraft) even if its not something paid for. I always worry about the outcome quality, if I spent enough time on it, or in the case of getting paid, if I charged too much or too little (ingame currency mod for minecraft or such).
If you really wanted to though, I would suggest contacting Smith & Tinker and see what they think. Who knows, maybe next time we talk to you we'll be talking to the lead model designer? xD
Even if the commercial models were unpainted, I would still gladly buy them because I would either get them commissioned to be painted, or try my hand at it myself anyways. In the meantime...I'm gonna see if there's a Madcat or a Vulture MKII model anywhere that I can put on my desk, I've had a serious craving for one of those two in a good sized model to put on my desk. Miniatures are cool and I really like a lot of them, but I would rather buy a single mech model for somewhat more to sit next to my monitor on my desk.
