Is it worth me mass producing these and selling online? If so, what do you think the price per one should be? What should be the price for a unit of 10?

What is it?
The product is a CS:GO keychain (does not have to be a keychain). It is based of the guy holding a gun on the CS:GO logo. The figure is just under 5.5 cm tall and just over 3 cm long.

Also, each one takes me around 6 hours to make.

Pics:
Mine has some wear because I've had it for a few months.





Thanks,
James.

that's a nice thing, done with 3d printer? also what about copyright?

but anyway that looks really nice, not large so can be as a keychain,it will be also very popular because csgo is popular now, and price shouldn't be larger than 3 $ i think, or there would be no buyers

It's an nice gift for the people who know CS:GO. People who don't know the game or don't care about the figure would not buy this. This is for specific group of people maybe good idea to make first 100 pieces of this.

Alright. Thanks for the feedback.

I made a mould on a laser cutter and then pewter casted inside the mould and then make it all smooth and cut off excess pewter and did the keychain. Took me over 6 hours :p
Hm, I never though about copyright.
I think $3 USD is low-balling it, it costs up to £5 GBP to make it and then all the costs to run the equipment like the laser cutter will add some more. I was thinking it'd be worth at least $15 USD + P&P.

Well can be sold maybe at 10dollars each but with a 3d printer would be the right way to go,why dont you try to make the same thing but with bitcoin on it,and you should search for some good place to make them not printing them that will cost you too much.

You could try creating your own soldier icon in a slightly different pose, but whoever owns counterstrike probably does have some sort of copyright claim on that logo and if you start producing in bulk it might draw a lot more attention than selling them on as a single trader. You may also want to have safety assessments, product testing and even business insurance if you don't already have these.

I think both keychain ideas would be quite popular. I know that the CS:GO community would probably like the whole keychain product. I myself would potentially buy that. If you plan on creating a BTC coin keychain, then I would definitely buy that as soon as you release it. If you decide to market that to this community, then I'm sure it would be efficient for you to begin mass producing it.

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

That could be possible or create some different figures so you can spread your market.

100 pieces only? there are lots of people that knows csgo, maybe they don't play it but they know it for sure, so i tink that it would be very, very popular thing in years like this, i think that it is worth mass production for sure, would be interesting to know price for one of this

I'm asking you guys for a suggested price :p

Also, when I made it, it took me roughly 6 hours so 100*6=600 hours….

yeah different figures wouldn't cost you a lot but more people would buy them, personally  i would buy csgo one for me and my friends because they like csgo, everyone likes csgo these days so it will be really popular, also that bitcoin keychain would be nice too

That was a cool keychain! I would totally buy one of those.

However, I would not pay much for it to be honest.
Maybe 4-5 bucks.

If you wanted to pursue this, you will need to find out how much it would cost you to produce (including your time). Then put the price 20% or so higher.

Sorry I will say no to this kind of key chain.
It is not practal to be a key chain, it will either poke a hole in my pocket or bleak itself when I put it in my pocket.
There is a reason most key chain are round and round round.
That being said , I think it make a good collectors item.

You can 2 scenarios - depending on the labor cost, etc, calculations.

1. You can license this out to a bigger company that sells keychains to adopt your design - and get a % of sales.

2. You can just setup shop here with a website w. a template offers ecommerce and start upfront sales now with bitcoin

I kind of agree. I think you make limited number of items, but maybe a few more shapes will make a good collectible.
