Now the pieces are inspected one last time and placed inside a protective plastic bag. The last step is to put the pieces inside the box as shown here.
They are now completed after the long journey through the studio. They are now shipped to the dealers and hopefully find a nice home in your collection. If you have read all the blog entries about the production of these two pieces, you will understand why they cost what they do and why they are so rare. I hope you have enjoyed this studio tour.
Here is the production total for these pieces:
"Blast-Off" 48 pieces, Issue price $75.00, Retired.
"Ice Cream" 50 pieces, Issue price $75.00, Retired.
This was a low production run of 50 pieces and less. Normally I produce 75 pieces. That is why it is a Special Edition. If you are interested in these, you can try and contact these two dealers and see if they have any left:
Thanks for reading.
