Yeah I know Shapeways can get pretty expensive as you get bigger.
I was talked with some contacts in hong kong about getting resin copies made. It would make a set of arms much much cheaper but I would need to make an order of 30-50 units. I can also contact a local guy I know that does resin 3d prints for a set of arms for around $70us.
About the Hong Kong manufacturer - is it 30-50 pieces, or 30-50 sets ?
If its just pieces, as every SS needs one set (2 pieces) you need about 15 people, which is not impossible seeing as there was rather big interest invested into this project. If its 30+ sets of pieces, well that might be harder, not sure if we can find 30 people for that.
However if you make a list to see how many people would be in on this, you can add me on it as well.
The second option - while still quite expensive, sounds much reasonable. Personally 50 bucks is the max I am seeing myself be willing to pay for it :/
