I am curious if there would be any interest in a repro Aquaman vs The Great White Shark set (if it could be done without damage to my original below)? I have often considered reproducing it if it could be done faithfully and at a price that collectors wouldn't mind paying.
Just wondering a couple of things:
1. Would there be any interest among collectors for a repro mego Great White Shark (if it could be done without damage to my original of course)?
2. If so what would be a good price point that collectors wouldn't mind paying that would allow them to have a repro of one of the "Holy Grails" of mego sets and also allow for the project to be worth investing in on my part?
3. Would collectors want a fully functional shark (would be more expensive) or a static model for display purposes only (it would still look the same, just wouldn't be motorized when put in water.....although I wouldn't put one in water anyway.....but that's just me)?
Please feel free to leave your thoughts/ideas here on this thread. Thanks.
BTW.......I know my box is a repro....I had it done by Anthony Durso.....just forgot to mention that and yes, I know this set came with a T2 Aquaman (without the shoulder seams).......my T2 Aquaman is in storage at the moment and when I took these photos I had the T1 (which is original with exception of his belt emblem) within reach so that's what I used for the photos. I am quite knowledgeable about this set.....just wanted to see if there was any interest in reproducing the Shark mainly.
Without further adieu......here's my Mego Great White Shark set:
