Thanks @redmoon
Iv got a couple resin printers and was just gonna do a limited number, like 10 or something, the statue would not be too big, they are fleas after all.

Sure thing, that is excellent to hear. You sound ready to go then. One thing I have done in the past is to print a shapeways "master print" (choose smoothest fine detail) then do I simple silicon box mold that resin can be poured in. Then you will have a fast way to cast high resolution casts at lower cost and you have material options. You can tint to any color, add glow in the dark powders, metal powders, flexible agents so they wont break (good for shipping)...all kinds of options.

Had this other idea of a clear resin thing with flea figures inside it that occupies space where the polystyrene usually is.
Iv began to run out of space for chunkey special editions but thought this would be cool. What's everyone else think?

Hmm, let me think about it. Well, you asked so I'll give you my honest opinion. I think it's [explicit]ing brilliant! I love it! What an incredibly great idea!

I really like it. To be honest I'm blown away by your idea. ~35 years of polystyrene inlays and nobody came up with this idea.
I love how this wasted space gets new value. When I saw it, it clicked in my brain, I could feel my neurons re-wiring and all my life up to this moment got reevaluated.
My second thought was "I have to steal this!" XD I won't though.
