Just got the wax master of the Buzz toy completed. Man, those guys over at Metago Toys are awesome, they're doing a great job. These are a couple of the pictures they recently sent me for approval. The wax master is the gold one to the left & the other "painted" Buzz is the original resin cast. I'm learning a lot about the toy process along the way. There are a few minor adjustments to the wax master that are not on the original toy. They flattened out the feet to ensure Buzz stands on his own. They also beefed up his feet a tad where the foot meets the leg to prevent breakage. There will be a seam at the waist & possibly at the arms, but the design of Buzz is cool cuz his "raised" tatoos will conceal all. The last image is for logo placement, it will be engraved right on Buzz's ass-butt. Anyways... hope you guys enjoy the pics. I'm really excited to get this guy out there. Buzz is right on schedule & will be availible late December-early January. We're working on the display box now & I should have that to post in the next day or two.

looks sweet jared. The only thing that bothers me is that he's looking down. I guess i wish his pupils were centered or more up and away. there's something kinda weird about him looking at the ground in front of him. No biggie though, thanks for sharing.
