Jamie madrox in a triple pack worked out for the AIM agents. Three differents facial expressions and 3 poses?

Right idea for the character, but . . . I question whether there will be enough market demand for this character when one sees the price tag for a triple pack (would/should be in the $110-120 range for three busts)

A perfect solution to that would be to do three different busts and sell them separately. One mass market. One website exclusive. One CC Exclusive. 500-750 qty on each. They would sell no prob. Then people could buy ONE or THREE. Their choice.

I would think that since it would be the same character just in relatively different poses he could keep the price in the $90-100 range.

I'd be willing to pay $120+ if they had his various costumes.

Or . . . considering that I can't see ANYONE buying just two (two just falls shy of being "multiple enough") . . . single bust for mass market . . . two pack "expansion set" as an exclusive (I agree with the 500-750 limit, as there WILL be enough die-hard collectors willing to shell out $80 for a two pack).

Hell yeah! I've been asking for this for at least four to five years now. Back when BD website had it's own forum.

Considering some of the old school characters being requested I can't imagine that an X-Man even of Multiple Man's caliber would have a hard time of selling to the collectors. I mean we have people requesting guys like Unicorn and busts of Mangog. And while I really dig the Dragon Man bust at the end of the day...WHO? I'd rather have multiple Multiple Man then some of the guys I see requested, but that's all personal opinion.

I'm also not all about all these requests for "exclusive" and super limited pieces. Bowen does a great job of figuring out accurate production runs. I think a Multiple Man triple pack would set it's own production limit, probably in the 750-1,000 range, but if 1,200 or more were ordered why not produce them?

Same here, but . . . I'd prefer to see exclusives for the "right" reasons. For me, not being "nut-so" about Multiple Man, but would like to have some representation of him in my collection, I'm not crazy about being locked in to having to spend $100+ for a tri-pack to do so. So, again, for me, I'd prefer to at least have the option to add him to the collection for ~$50, while at the same time provide collectors that are more interested in this character the ability to invest their dollars for a "more befitting" addition to their collection (i.e. a tri-pack via a two-pack "expansion" set.)

And the possibility of three busts, one of three different genres/costumes would certainly make NO sense, as that completely defeats the purpose (displaying the characters "power" of making DUPLICATES).

Only if its classic style, 90's costume, and the current Madrox/X-Factor Investigations look. YES!!!

(For some reason, I've always really liked this character.)

couldnt they do 1 bust with a change-o head, and offer 2 variant heads so people can buy more than 1 if they choose, and it would be most cost effective way to produce this bust, just my oppinion

No, I need the ability to display MULTIPLE Multiple Man's. :D

Wouldn't buying mutilple single pack satify this wish?

I am down with this. I don't need a muti pack that's gonna cost me $100 if all I need is one Jamie on my shelf.

Yes, at a HIGHER cost (3 times ~$50=$150) than what a triple pack, or combined cost for a single and a two-pack "expansion" set, would cost.

I feel a mass-market release of a triple-pack, which has got to cost out at $110-120, just won't sell well enough, and buying three singles (even with a change-o-head, which will/may only drive the cost of the single up that much more) won't be cost-effective for those collector's that would want to display this character's "power" (and two just falls woefully shy of doing so!!).

Considering recent news, I guess I/we should debate the matter further if/when we get any whiff that MM makes it into the pipeline this phase; otherwise, we're all blowin' smoke for nothin'.

A triple pack is perfect for this character.

I like the idea of a single bust with 2 "multiples" breaking off on either side. It could be a similar size to the Ka Zar bust, with Madrox (in his 90's costume of course ;)) posed in the middle with a smirk, and the two others in alternate poses...

Just a thought.

I would just say 1 bust with a variant. Classic and Modern costumes. Just IMO.
