No. It?s fan art and a limited edition - expression which is entitled to the full protection of the First Amendment. So I don?t need to.
I'm not being sarcastic or anything here. So what you're saying is it has everything to do with the amount produced. If Redman only made a limited run of 50 or less figures, it'd be *a tad* different..as opposed to mass producing them.
Redman - takes these sculpts that artists have done. Recasts them. Copies everything about the above releases poorly. Mass Produces 1000?s of low end quality toy figures with a price tag to match the quality.
I've been collecting high-end 1/6 figures since the '99 Toys McCoy Indy figure. I have a pile of Hot Toys, Threezero, Blitzway; and even a few Cult King, Rainman, and Lu & Betomatali pieces. As far as Redman, I have four of the Clint Eastwood releases. They're amazing. Nothing low end about those. So I can say for certain that you're getting a high-end figure for a super great price. The only down side is the hats sitting really high on some of the heads, like Josey Wales. But I'm pretty sure that's an original sculpt, same with their Stranger figure (from High Plains Drifter).

So you think $160 is too much for this figure? How much do you think this should be? Honestly curious.

I dont't know exactly the prices which cultking paid for this headsculpt and the clothes. But the price for an average quality headsulpt is $4000-$6000, clothes from professional tailors like iris is at least $300 for one set. Prices for professional painting is at least $100 per set. I can see no big profit here from cultking when considereing the risk in doing a run.
-----
When we speak about Redman we only speak about materials costs and mass production costs (salary) in china. They have to buy a an original headsculpt for $70 which is the most expensive part, but I'm pretty sure they sell it after copying it :) - Well, I would't believe it's more than $100 for a full figure like this. The new Joker figure is under $100 and has a much better quality.

About quality I would recommend to see the latest paints from sinag_portraits at ig, also iris clothes are now much better than 2017 (first figure). They made the latest lost boys figure with thinner material, better waethering and better tailoring, than you see on the youtube video (first version).

@Rzeznikk - Absolutely incredible work... Is there any chance you'd be willing to help someone (read: ME!) who's never modded/customized a figure before as I managed to snag quite literally the last LOST MAN from KGHobby?

I'm not quite as much concerned with the weathering, but the hair work you did is unreal.

Thanks so much!

In your basement next to the Halloween decorations
... man, and I mulled it over for almost three days before I pulled the trigger (thanks to @Rzeznikk 's work, actually!) - my apologies!!
Thanks, actually all I have is those pics of the hairing process I did for this one. You'll want to get some white/blonde tibetan lambs fur off ebay.
And some Green Label Roket Glue. Good luck! 👍

Thanks, @Rzeznikk !

How did you blend the lamb’s fur up into the molded hair to make it transition so well?

And any tips as far as how best/where to Dremel the molded mullet off?
