Would you be interested (for your Sci-Fi, Pulp, Fantasy and Prehistoric goals)?

Best case scenario would be brand new poses. But would you be interested even if they are winter-dressed but in the same exact poses as his more scantily clad packs (as in his existing C25, C26, C29)?

I thought you were going to say would you have Hitler or Stalin as the leader ;0)

I suppose you mean by putting them in skins etc? I would prefer that rather than the Raquel Welch look though you are NOT getting me interested in another period!!!

Cacique Caribe16 Feb 2006 2:27 a.m. PST

Yes!!! Plenty of furs to survive the Ice Age:

They would work for frozen Lost World scenarios, odd encounters in Mongolia/Siberia, prehistoric planets, etc. Don't you think?

I would buy them in winter skins etc.

Either the same figures or new poses!

Roberto Cofresi16 Feb 2006 3:48 a.m. PST

Absolutely. But only if "winter-dressed". There is no other way to do proper cavemen.

Chupacabras16 Feb 2006 3:53 a.m. PST

That is why I have not gone into cavemen (yet). Gotta have plenty of furs and leggings.

If Copplestone made them, I would certainly buy them and start yet a new period.

Patules16 Feb 2006 4:09 a.m. PST

Epoxy Putty? Sculpting fur is very basic stuff.

Steve Pugh16 Feb 2006 5:34 a.m. PST

I'll buy any more cavemen that Copplestone sculpts. Whether dressed for the arctic or the tropics or all points in between.

Ferrous Lands16 Feb 2006 6:05 a.m. PST

Yes, it has seemed odd to me that although several manufacturers produce cave men, none are in ice-age attire.

You mean, fur bikinis?

Personal logo Inari7 Supporting Member of TMP16 Feb 2006 6:35 a.m. PST

No one would buy them, because everyone knows it was very hot back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth.

Centurio Andy,

I have been wondering the same thing for a while. But, I guess, the demands for tropical attire won out with the first packs made.

I think there is now a demand for attire for the frozen wastes. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Some cavegirls can look nice in winter furs too! Remember this Star Trek episode on that ice planet ("All Our Yesterdays"):

Time would reverse itself and the universe would end.

So don't do it Mark.

jpattern216 Feb 2006 10:01 a.m. PST

I'd buy at least two of each pack.

Norscaman16 Feb 2006 10:44 a.m. PST

I'd buy one pack of the fur-clad guys. I use them as primitives for my barbarians to fight.

CooperSteveatWork16 Feb 2006 11:21 a.m. PST

Er… Copplestone inuit with a weapon change?

Hundvig Fezian16 Feb 2006 2:04 p.m. PST

I misread the thread title as "well-dressed cavemen" and had visions of Neanderthals in tuxedos and evening gowns. Now those I'd buy…

Highland Guerilla16 Feb 2006 4:46 p.m. PST

Thesecretalias is spot on.

rnorton2316 Feb 2006 5:49 p.m. PST

I'd buy 'em! Mark needs to have a Caveman special deal of the month!

Ferrous Lands16 Feb 2006 7:44 p.m. PST

I think using inuits would require head swaps, not just weapon changes to be convincing cavemen.

Cacique Caribe17 Feb 2006 1:39 p.m. PST

I agree Centurio Andy. It is not just a matter of "what if Copplestone made long-haired Inuits".

The dress of the Copplestone Inuits is a bit too sophisticated to pass as winter-dressed cavemen:

Sci-Fi gamers can have the winter-dressed cavemen attack their settlements:

Chupacabras18 Feb 2006 1:38 p.m. PST

The moment they are made, I will order a couple of packs of each.

Cacique Caribe16 Jul 2007 3:22 p.m. PST

Imagine if Copplestone made a 3-4 packs of these . . .

Would it sell???

evilcartoonist17 Jul 2007 3:19 p.m. PST

What?! Mark is making winter-dressed cavemen?! *writes out check for hundreds of dollars to Copplestone Castings*

Oh- what IF.

Mark, the check is waiting to be sent! :-)

Cacique Caribe18 Jul 2007 11:26 p.m. PST

LOL.

If Copplestone has already done Cavemen, and he has already done Inuit, why not meet half-way, right?

CC
PS. I just sent him another email to see if this is part of his short or long-term plans. Fingers crossed.

Cacique Caribe18 Jul 2007 11:43 p.m. PST

I'd REALLY like these guys:

The less adorned, the better.

At least I now have their winter huts!

DAWGIE30 Jul 2007 6:45 a.m. PST

YES, I WOULD BUY SEVERAL PACKS OF THEM!


HOWEVER, it is extremely easy to make fur leggings, boots, cloaks, etc, out of epoxy ribbon.

ditto for hairstyles or fur caps.


DAWGIE

Cacique Caribe24 Aug 2007 2:07 a.m. PST

Slowly working on a few conversions, until Mark makes his next packs:

Try Vendels Hillmen they fit the bill and would seem to work nicely

Cacique Caribe24 Aug 2007 1:25 p.m. PST

Two down . . . and a bunch more to go:

Superb work CC! Ready for Mammoth hunting. Is there a way to get them handling atlatl (spearthrowers) rather than just spears?

Mysterioso

Cacique Caribe24 Aug 2007 2:18 p.m. PST

Atlatls? Brilliant!!!
