Matt Scone and sculptor Sanden Henning offer this splendid Forever Alone sculpture. Despite there being only 30 in the limited edition run, they're only $79 each: "We learned a bunch on the whole process of making a toy and shipping it to the US from overseas. We invested about 2.5k into the project, in fact we're still losing money selling them. But we had fun working on the project so it's not all a lost."
Scone describes the development and manufacturing process:
1) We had a 3D render of the statue made
2) 3D printed it, which is really expensive but getting cheaper by the day
3) Cast a mould around the figure
4) Had 30 of them made in resin
5) Hand paint them
6) Custom packaging
7) Ship from China to the States

Unlike traditional lighters, the SaberLight features an electronic plasma beam that’s both rechargeable and butane-free. This sleek lighter is even approved by TSA, so you’ll never be stuck buying lighters you’ll just have to throw away partially used. For some people, like me, this is a pretty big game-changer. The SaberLight’s beam is actually both hotter and cleaner […]
