RABIDPEEP AND I HAVE A 3D PRINTER. WE CAN MAKE TOYS OF ANYTHING. Want a figure of that one pony in that crazy pose from that one episode? WE CAN MAKE IT. ANYPONY. ANY POSE.
What the Heck?! How is this possible?
Okay, okay no. First I model the pony up in 3DS Max. That's right, no lifting free models off the internet—we custom-model these toys to order. I export the model, and then it gets converted into code for the printer. About eight hours later, we've got an unruly mess of plastic that has to be trimmed, at which point I usually slice all my fingers open with the X-acto knife. Twice. Then we throw it in a chamber with boiled acetone vapor to give it a quick smooth down before sanding the ever-living crap out of it for an hour. After that, it's a spray coat of primer followed by several coats of acrylic. Yes, it involves a huge amount of work, which is why you won't see many people even attempting something like this, and if they do, it generally doesn't involve custom models.
By the way, our print process has improved about a hundredfold throughout the course of our working on these! We've made improvements that surprise even the 3D-printing community, and we have literally not sat still until we've gotten our figures' quality to a level comparable to sculptures.
Tell Me More About These Figures!
Will do! For starters they're made of ABS plastic, making them really durable and lightweight. We're clumsy and tend to drop them on the floor all the time, but they haven't broken on us yet (note: you still probably shouldn't routinely drop any toy you get from us, as the ears and tails are still capable of snapping off if it lands on them.) Want to know how heavy they are, on average? About 70 grams, or 2.5 ounces. THAT'S REALLY LIGHT. They tend to be about 5 inches tall, or 12cm, though obviously this is dependent on the pose. We can do larger things as a special order, but the price will be have to be marked up on a case-by-case basis.
This section will list the base prices for different sizes of figures offered. Base prices apply to figures using models that I have already created. Scroll down to see our policy regarding custom orders!

This is important! If you order a figure that I have already modeled and posted on DA, the turnaround time will be a whole heck of a lot quicker! We can begin printing and painting your model IMMEDIATELY, without any time spent modeling!
Larger Ponies: $90
Alicorn princesses fall under this category, as well as Sombra, since he takes more work than a normal pony.
Biggest Ponies: $120
Special Editions: $160
These are the large specialty prints that we do for raffles and fundraisers or other special cases. They are 7" - 8" tall.
Now for the part you all really care about. Customs. We do custom orders, and this includes OCs. Custom models naturally require more work, however, as this can involve anywhere from 4-12 extra hours spent in 3Ds Max. Accessories bump this up even further. Therefore--
Custom Modeling Fee: Up to +$20 base price (depending on complexity) Note me for a price quote!
Pretty much any pose is possible, though you should probably limit it to things that can actually stand up on their own without help (but we can create bases for things that wouldn't.) Overly elaborate accessories that are too small and detailed might have to be omitted, but I'll let you know beforehand if your commission request is printable or not. Also, it's really helpful if you have a reference image for us.
We only accept Paypal as payment. And come on...how many of you seriously have 6,000 points lying around, anyway? Where did you even get them, if you don't have money to buy them with?!
Send all request details to me in a note, and we can finalize all the details. As soon as I receive payment, you'll be added to the list!
