ok everybody, first i want to start out by saying that i am very sorry but the pics i took did not do it justice and i was unable to get the close ups i really wanted, i do have a crappy camera which i now realized, and by judging the last photos posted, i could not have done better,, i took a video which i will post , but that too was not as great as i expected, i really do need to invest in a camera, but i think you will get an idea, it kept wanting to focus on the glass and or the reflextion, but anyway , now comes the talk i had with scott and george, which was the fist time i have ever met them, very conflicting stories, george was not there in the morning so i was able to ask scott first , and he seemed to me to be very honest and very open, and george seemed too reserved,, very hard to get info, and i was like hmmm on georges answeres i wrote them in caps, so there is no confusion
keep in mind the questons were done at different times, scott in the morning
(george not there)
and george in the afternoon, ( scott not there)
Raf: What changes will there be for superman if any?
S: there will be some, what you see is about 80 percent done, the base may be smaller, but will have cyrstals, and costume to me is a bit sparkely bue we are still figuring that one out,
G: THIS IS NOT COMPLETE , THERE ARE STILL THINGS TO FIX, THATS ALL I CAN SAY
Raf: What about the 'S' on chest and cape, will they be sewn, on?
S: most likey ironed on, and there is no S on the back of cape
Raf: WHAT! there has to be, superman has an S in back of cape,
S: not the christopher reeves superman, there is not S in any of the movies, and we try to and aim to make movie acurate , which sometimes people dont realize that the originals have more or less things that fans see,
Raf: Damn, i am so possitive he has an S, i will have to check out the movies,,
S: ok please do and emial me, so we can adress that
G: NO 'S' ON CAPE BUT 'S' WILL BE IRONED ON,
Raf: Will there be the name superman instead of the S on the base?
S: no, we all agreed that the S is the way to go,
Raf: When should this be ready to buy,?
S: by spring
Raf: Glass eyes, glued or punched eyelashes?
S: punched eyelashes, done with a custom needle, almost like acupunture kind, and the eyes are silicone, but they were made separate, and put in,
Raf: Same as bruce lee?
S: yes, bruce also has punched in eyelashes, and silicone eyes,
G: EYES ARE SILICONE IT IS TINTED TO MAKE THEM LOOK MORE REAL, SAME WITH BRUCE, NO GLASS, I DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH THAT, IT IS TOO MUCH WORK AND TO HAVE THEM LATER SHIFT AND HAVE THE CUSTOMERS COMPAIN, HEY MY EYES SHIFTED ON MY CM, ,I DON'T WANT THAT SO THERE WILL NOT BE GLASS EYES IN ANY OF THE CMS, IF SOMEONE KNOWS HOW TO DO THIS THEY CAN DO IT THEMSELVES, BUT NOT EVERYONE CAN, I HAVE MANY OF MINE WITH GLASS EYES BUT I KNOW HOW TO DO THAT,
Raf: What measurments does the bruce lee base have?
S: i can't remember
G: DON'T RECALL OFF HAND
Raf: ( TO ALL MY BUDDIES HERE I CALCULATED THAT THE BASE IS NO MORE THEN 12: X 12 )
Raf: One more on superman, who sculpted the face?
S: we had different sculpters, i think mark hil started it and jeff gieger finished it
G: WELL WE HAD DIFFERENT SCULPTERS, BUT I REALLY CAN'T SAY,
Raf: (asking george) was one of them mark hill?
G: WELL YES BUT HE DIDNT FINISH IT, AND THAT HEAD YOU SEE HERE IS NOT THE ONE YOU WILL GET WE ENDED UP RESCULPTING IT AND THE ONE WE ENDED UP WITH IS WAY BETTER THEN THIS ONE, AND LOOK A LOT MORE LIKE CHRISTOPHER,
Raf: ( TO GEORGE) SO WHO ENDED UP SCULPTING THE FINAL PIECE, THAT WE WILL BE GETTING?
G: I PREFER TO NOT SAY,
Raf: WHY NOT?
G: WELL I PREFER NOT TO, THE SCULPTER DOESNT WANT TO BE KNOWN,
Raf: What about darth vader? it the rumor correct that he will be next?
S: in reality there is nothing there, yet, heck we are still trying to finish the superman, so i can't really confirm that one,
G: WE ALREADY HAVE A VILLIAN AND FOR THAT MATTER OTHER HEROES ON THE MAKINGS
Raf: (to george) IS VADER THE ONE?
G: NO, THE VILLIAN IS READY BUT THERE ARE JUST TO MANY TO NAME
Raf: If there is a joker in the future will it be jack or ledger? (forgot to ask george )
S: it will be maybe the shining, for jack if that were to be the case,
Raf: What ? bit jack it the man, and don;t you think most people will want a joker jack than a shining,
S: well i really don't know, where we would go but most likely the shining,
Raf: What about clint eastwood , with his poncho like bad in the westerns,
S OH yeah, that is one we were really thinking about that would be incredible
G: WE MADE A EASTWOOD ONE, , WITH HIS PONCHO AND ALL, BUT CLINT DIDNT APROVE IT BECAUSE HE DOESNT WANT HIMSELF POTRAYED FROM THE SPAGETTI WESTERNS, HE WOULD WANT A MORE UP TO DATE ONE,
Raf: ( to george ) wait you have a clint,?
G: YES BUT IT WILL STAY IN MY COLLECTION, AND REALLY NO ONE WILL EVER SEE THAT IN PRODUCTION, AND I WON;T DO A CLINT WHERE HE IS AT THIS AGE, I HAVE A LOT IN MY COLLECTION, THAT WILL NEVER SEE THE DAY OF LIGHT FOR THE CUSTOMERS, SOMETIMES IT IS NOT EASY TO GET THE APROVAL LKE VADER,
Raf: WAIT! so darth vader is a confirmation
G: NO, IM NOT SAYING THAT, BUT THAT IS ALL I CAN SAY,
Raf: Any woman in the cm line up
S: that is one thing we are talking about down the line, but nothing set yet,
G: THINKING ABOUT IT, NOTHING YET
Raf: Ok forgot , who will be singing the superman certificate?
S: not sure yet,
G: WORKING ON IT, ALL I CAN SAY
Raf: Ok so, my predator order says 6 mo. instead of waiting list, will i get one?
S: oh yeah, no problem,
G: I HAVE TO FIX THAT SITE, PREDATOR IS LONG GONE DON'T THINK YOU WILL GET ONE, YOU WILL PROBABLY GET AN EMAIL SAYING NO,
Raf: Ok i clicked on bruce the day it went up, same as my buddies on cbd , will we get one,
S: oh sure thats no problem, maybe in the next 2 weeks, you will get an email,
G: MAYBE, ITS NEVER A SURE THING EVEN IF YOU CLIKED ON THE SAME DAY
