I don't have cost specifics yet (I'll be asking more after I see how this thread goes), but I may be able to get a custom chrome run done for the board. That is, a zoid vacuum metalized in colors we pick out frame by frame, like in the bygone Leoshop days...and quite possibly with a custom box.
Which one will be decided by group poll if I think there's enough people interested, and then we'll pick colors after that. It has to be a Zoid that's readily available (things like, say, the Zero CAS are a no), and I want to make it a windup/other smallish kit so as to keep costs/shipping affordable for most people.
If you think you'd be in for that sort of thing, please post here. I'm not counting it as a commitment, but if you're sure you won't be able to pay (parents hate online ordering, squirrels ate your wallet, etc), please don't say yes now.
(If you're only interested in one SPECIFIC Zoid/something larger, poke me via PM and I'll pass on the same info I have.)
