Bob Bukoski was looking into making Reproduction car seats, but he said it won't be easy, You probably need to make a BIG, HUGE rotocasting machine to replicate it. I would gladly pay an arm and a leg to build Gypsy. 

Bob told me that his guess is that her head will cost $150-$195 per copy and that it requires 5-7 times as much resin as a Money Lover Barrel and 3-4 hours of labor per seat. It's Great that he's thinking of us. I guess I'll become an amputee then. (kidding of course)  ;)

Maximum hype. Way cheaper than what I was expecting too.

I was thinking it would be more too. Definitely a good price point.

When will then be now?  :)

My kids & I just finished our Cambot build (with a working camera in it) and are ready for our next build.  Just need that stinkin' love seat!

I just joined the community.  Mostly because I want to build Gypsy next.

That price point ($150 - $195) is much better than I'd expected to pay as well.  I'd LOVE to get a reproduction if / when they become available.

Back to the garage to see if Crow's wonderful lime / gold is setting up without runs.

Cheers!

Ted.

On ebay earlier today, someone bought a nearly complete Gypsy head for almost $350.  There were 42 bids.  Clearly, there is an eager market for seats.

Just sayin'.

It's all on hold at the moment.  It's a huge project.

I contacted Bob. In case you're wondering, He hasn't had much time to work on it he was so busy with the new season.
