Custom Manny Figure

thanks to Iain Reeke for making this! I decided I needed badly and bought his creation off him as soon as I saw it, check out the pics!

Where to buy? How expensive? Shipping? Or did you get the only existing piece?

Can he make his head wobbly?

Those are definitely FTW.

Owning some of that would certainly make me happy. You're lucky!

Wow, that's a real masterpiece! It would be awesome to have the entire main cast as figures like that, but Manny alone is a real treat. You're so lucky.

How much did you pay for that, if you don't mind me asking?

A true collectable, though. You're not likely to get anything as fine as that even if it were official.

If I had a spare $300 I'd probably go for it.

The guy's a true artist. Incredible.

They would look so cool standing next to each other.
I would like to see a figure made of both of them in their tuxedos.

I paid $75 for this, the most I'm really willing to spend at this point.

That's cool... I didn't know a 'clean' version of that had ever been released. Do you have any more info about it?
