THOR V1 and Pre Orders!


24/25 Available

So, while Julie B did an awesome job of bringing THOR V0 to life, due to a lot of undercuts and odd crevices it was difficult to get 1 piece casts, reliably. Therefore the costs were unfortunately high and conversely our price points also reflected that. I am modifying the original THOR and made some changes for our run of blanks. THOR V1 will now be a total of 4 base pieces (body, arms, and hammer) instead of 2. He will also come with his two signature lightning bolt horns for his helmet. If there is significant interest I’d also like to do other objects for him to hold and alternate horn styles.

It’s hard for me to decide just which subject to tackle first but just know that this isn’t the easiest thing to discuss, frankly. Because of our enthusiasm and most likely some newbie mistakes were a bit short on being able to start production of blanks in earnest. Our ability to go forward will rely in a large part on your desire to have your very own THOR to love and hug and cherish and maybe even paint if that’s your kinda thing. We have two options right now:

  1. Unassembled, bagged and tagged Garage Kit style packaging, for $50 I would at least be cleaning up any flashing or other obvious boogers, but it would otherwise be fresh for you.
  2. Dee-lux DIY version with an assembled and cleaned up THOR (with or without horns attached, your choice), packaged in a handmade box with lineart labels so you can fully customize your presentation, for $65

At this time we would humbly request the full amounts for Pre-Orders, so that we can flip your investment right away and get to work on the master mold, and subsequently cast THOR V1 for shipping! You have our guarantee that if we cannot get a sufficient amount of pre orders to begin production in a reasonable amount of time, you will get a full refund!

Pre-Orders will be limited to a maximum of 25 for the first run, and the cut-off will be the beginning of October, although we will begin production as soon as we can.

If you are interested, please send us an email at! We’re working on getting an online store up and running but for now we can only accept PayPal.

I will post some pics of the THOR surgery very soon!
