Having visited a local (greek) comics convention today, I stumbled on a small workshop that specialises in (mostly) Sword & Sorcery themed custom creations.
Have a look at their version of the Michael Whelan-inspired Elric the Stormbringer statue:

...and more creations (like Frazetta-insired Conan and the Silver Warrior) on their Facebook Page.

I'm not a serious collector myself but, every now and then, I'd purchase something like the Conan AF line from NECA.

Any similar suggestions and/or collectors out there?
Feel free to embed photos or links!

Great link Seth! Kostas is actually the artist behind Elric, also.
Ashe, true I wish I could afford a few myself...

You are getting me hooked, Periklis. I recently read Adrian Smith's Chronicles of Hate... and he had teamed up with sculptor Cyril Roquelaine,challenging himto make 7 sculptures in 7 days:
