So the Pike that everyone gnashed their teeth about is selling for TWICE what it retailed for?
I guess that means that, even with the imperfect size of the head, people still want it.
The future of Star Trek retro cloth is in the hands of Diamond Select Toys as it has been since
they first agreed to do these in 2006. I want to make more, but it's their money on the table,
not mine, so they get to call the shots.
I don't think he'll ever sell at this price...
Now at the $11 mentioned above, I'd take it.
I love most of the EMCE Treks (very grateful for Sulu, Chekov, Salt Vampire, etc), but the Gorn and Pike are just for completion's sake.
"Everything has an end.
Except sausages, which have two..."
I passed on Pike at half price thanks to that gigantic painted melon. Got the Salt Vampire instead.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
But hey, I helped the cause...I bought one, threw the head away and made a Kirk Custom from "Where No Man Has Gone Before".

After seeing the Star Trek Select Spock prototype at SDCC it's my guess DST wil be focusing thier attention on the new ST Select line. I was hoping that DST would someday release the 7 inch Rand, Chapel and Salt Vampire that got cancelled and also the Retro Cloth Vina and Chapel. I don't know about you guys but I collect several of the Trek lines that have come out through the years and doubt I will take on another with the Select line.
Amazon where they are $19.99...I was just having fun with him. But that aside, I still plan to buy two more Pikes for my "WNMHGB" collection...one for Spock and one for the custom Gary Mitchell head I've been holding onto for a long time because I couldn't make the shirt.

As for the over-sized head, we purposely went larger anticipating shrinkage.
The problem was the factory was also thinking about shrinkage and assumed
we sent them the head at 100%.
This is a problem with dealing with a factory on the other side of the world and
that speaks another language AND it was the first retro cloth they made.
When we got to Universal Monsters, we got the signals straight.
