My P2 SuperEdge gets a “Here Be Monsters” Treatment!

November 20th, 2006

Earlier in the year I went on a rampage and picked up the complete series of Predator kits produced by Super Edge, which are pretty much the best in the biz! They re-issued their Elder and P2 kits, so it was a perfect time to pick up these kits at normal sub $200 prices. I decided I’d have someone I’ve never used before to build up my P2 kit, and I had a couple of people in mind from the Clubhouse forums that showed some awesome talent! One of these guys was John Allred, owner of Here Be Monsters, and ladies and gents he did NOT disappoint! The photos speak for themselves…

Now I would like to tell you about the “HBM Experience”. John runs his studio as a business full-time, and it shows because it feels like a professional business from A to Z but still very friendly. It was absolutely amazing and here’s what I mean… John will start off by outlining his build-up process, show you his terms, provide a quote and payment methods. Once he receives your kit, he will actually book a time slot for your build up so you know exactly when he’s working on it and when he’ll be finished it. The beauty of it is that he sticks to these scheduled appointments TO THE DAY! John also provides work-in-progress photos throughout the build up process so you can see where things stand and make any suggestions along the way if there’s something you think needs adjusting.

Once your kit is done and you’re happy with the final photos, John carefully wraps everything in tons of bubble wrap and packing peanuts to provide as much protection as possible and ships it out with as per your prearranged shipping wishes.

The “Here Be Monsters” experience was one of the most pleasant and quickest model build up transactions I have ever completed and the final product is among the best buildups in my collection, so you really can’t ask for anything better than this. Click the icon photo icon below to check out all the photos of this build-up that literally looks like it just walked off the big-screen! (The first 9 photos in the series)

On top of all this praise, John’s pricing is right on par with the average cost of an experienced model builder, so you’re not getting hit with an insane price just because he does this fulltime. So in summary, you get awesome and friendly service, fast turn around times, excellent progress updates, great prices, and kick ass work! Want to book a build up of your own with John? Give him a buzz from his contact page!
