Sixteen bucks sounds pretty reasonable.

Those do look very impressive and a great price to. Are you thinking of a Mego/DD style custom possibly Anton?

This could easily be done with some slight modification to the Frankenstein. The Tor would be too little. I was actually thinking of doing the Moebius kit and making use of the Frankie head. But I am all out of room. So I dunno if I will do anything,lol. But wanted to share the news nonetheless.

Impressive, sculpts. Both are quite awesome. Love to see a Plan 9, Tor.

Ah, the age old issue of display shelf space. It gets to us all and it's like musical chairs in my cabinet with the figure rotating that goes on monthly to fit new things in. I have to bring new things in and take others out at times but it does get hard to do when you've sent months getting a display to look just right (when I say just right I mean more that you can see each figures face lol!).

Still, great to see these impressive sculpts and it's amazing how many things you can cram together if needs must.  :D

Those heads are incredible! Jeff Gather is one master-class sculptor.
