This MOC is nothing special, but I really wanted to use a color scheme with those dark red/ orange flame pieces once.
I really like the idea for the torso I had to imitate the Rahkshi body.
Thought I will probably take him apart again, I will need his pieces soon, I think.
When I was a kid, I was mostly upset by the difference between the film and the "toy" versions. The film-version has these flames on it's back, it's arms and legs are a bit longer and stronger than those of the "toy"-version and none of the rakshi have the snake-head the "toy" versions have.
Including that your MOC is more complex than the regular hero/villian-builds are: this one is the best (Turakh)Rakshi MOC I 've ever seen (for me at least).
P.S: I like the colour combination
One could say the only same thing was the posture xD
If you could sell it, we could negotiate prices on your terms, and if not I reeeeaaaaaally hope you could write a list or post/email a set of pics where you build it, w/ worded instructions. You seem to know your english quite well so language barriers shouldn't be a problem. Write and take pics of what you can and I should be able to work out the rest.
He fell from my shelf and is now half-way taken apart xD
But the important part; the torso is still complete and some parts of the limbs. I could recreate him.
I'd sell him as well, I don't really have need for his parts anymore and it would be cool to sell one of my models for the first time
Please, could you give me an idea of how much you'd be willing to pay? Normally I'd try to create a list of the parts I used and look how much they're worth to get the base value of the MOC (so the money I'd get for just selling the parts), then I'd add a little percentage for the work I've done to create the model.
Another problem would be the shipping costs; from Germany to Australia; one travel around the world, I've no idea how much that would be xD
If you're still seriously interested in buying the molten rahkshi after reading this; I'd be willing to do the work to find out the price, otherwise it'd be just a whole lot of work for nothing. But please consider it; I'd really love to sell a MOC for my first time x3
At $125-$180 AUD for the entire model, could we work something out? I'd also be willing to pay extra (say bump it to $200 AUD for the lot) if you could send the model along with some instructions on how to make it (in case my bro pulls it apart or breaks it apart, he's not like that but I have to make sure) if that's a possibility.
I'm not so sure of the AUD - Germany Dollars rate, but I'm sure you can look it up or something.
Sorry, I had to ask; a lot of people don't really have a realistic idea of how much such a figure is worth, just the parts value is a lot alone.
By the way; Germany is in Europe, so we use the Euro as our money.
According to this site www.finanzen.net/waehrungsrech… 35 AUD would be 23,84 Euro for example.
I think the price you estimated is still a bit high (wrong way to be a seller, but whatsoever), but it's nice to know that you have an idea about the price.
This weekend, I'm gonna go back to my home and thus my MOCs (I'm studying in another city). There I'm gonna recreate the MOC and find out about which parts it uses and then try to find out about their value through bricklink.
Then I can give you the exact price ^^
Also, I might be persuaded hit you up for more of your works in the future (wink, wink) if this all works out.
So, would you want to have the exact same Molten Rahkshi as in the picture or would it be fine if I'd improve him a little bit? I was never satisfied with the legs, so that would be the only thing I'd work on.
In that case, I'd then post the new version of the Molten Rahkshi and mark it as (SOLD) within the title, I just would like to show that I was able to sell one of my figures, but if you have any objections to that, I'm also fine with leaving everything as it is.
I saw the original modell for this, and I love how it started black and slowly progressed to a bursting and warm yellow. If you could implement that old colour scheme into this new model, that'd be brilliant.
At the end of the day, do what you do and wwe'll see what comes of it ^_^
Yeah, I know that the feet are terrible xD I'm already working on it ^^
Sorry, I've noticed that I missing some parts so i'm gonna have to rebuy them, but changing the feet/legs are gonna take some time anyways, in case a little waiting is okay for you
TAKE IT ALL
They were made more quick than good xD
Maybe I'm gonna rework him ... let's if I can find the time.
