After much thought we have come to the decision...if you can't beat 'em...join 'em! In an effort to make a customizable version of the Alavaka Bodhisattva sculpt we have put in an order for an huge run of blank white pieces. This will hopefully stop the stripping of painted editions and widen the possibilities for those people so inclined to customize toys. This unpainted white version will include both heads (the Bodhisattva head has never been released in white before) and will be priced much cheaper than a standard release. More info in this thread as it becomes available. The image below has been photoshoped for promo purposes only.
UPDATE: October 22nd 2016
These are in hand and ready to ship. Look for them to go on sale in the webshop on October 31st. Grab as many as you like!
