This is a bad title (feel free to modify it).
I have 75 unique SKUs, lets think of them as socks. Theres 3 different styles, 4 different heal colors, and 5 different body colors. I could probably pick a better example, but whatever. Everyone wears socks.
As you can see, they're all socks so the material, weight, cost, etc is all the same. Only the image changes. I could create one configurable product and 75 simple products, but that still seems excessive.
If I didn't need an image, custom options would be a no brainer. But since I do, that won't really work. Even if I could attach an image to a custom option, I would still need logic to combine the chosen options into a calculated image.
This is probably a rant, more than anything, but has anyone run into this before? If I should just create the 75 SKUs, let me know if you suggest that.
