THE BIRDS ARE ON THE BOAT!!!

Unfortunately there was another small production hiccup that delayed shipping of the Gothitropolis: Ravens figures by another two weeks, but everything is back on track now and they’ve been shipped from the factory and are on their way across the ocean to our warehouse in New Jersey as we’re posting this update. The issue seems like a small one but it was one that couldn’t be quickly taken care of. The capes for the Eagalus figure had been assembled backwards and were inside out. Since the clasp has to be glued into place, all of those capes had to be re-done.

BUT the good news is that, barring any issues with the shipment overseas or with US customs, we should have them here in a few short weeks and we should be able to begin shipping out to all of our Kickstarter backers immediately.

Today and over the next few days we’re going to post updates with shipping and production pics that we thought you all might like to see. Thanks once again for all of your patience. You’ve all been so wonderful and supportive to us through all of this and we really appreciate it. The end is nigh! :)

RAVENSheadshots

 

We put the Gothitropolis: Ravens up for pre-order on Monday, and even though they’re selling rapidly there are still some in stock on Store Horsemen right now if you haven’t pre-ordered yours yet!

Not only can you choose from 13 different variants of the original Black Raven character (Decimus Hrabban) including the wildly popular Eagalus the screaming eagle, but there are also cool accessories to choose from like interchangeable wings, a battle pack, an interchangeable bone wings & raven skull set, and a base/stand that was created for 6″ scaled action figures but also works well on other scaled figures too!

Just go to Store Horsemen to pre-order yours today!

THE FACTORY HAS FINALLY GIVEN US A SCHEDULED SHIP DATE FOR THE GOTHITROPOLIS RAVENS!!

LAYOUT1 LAYOUT2

Well, although we thought it was going to be smooth sailing with the production on the Gothitropolis: Ravens figures after solving the issues with the snags with the tooling and the paint, we ran into a couple more snags when it came to the packaging.

As you can see from the images shown over in the updates section of our Gothitropolis: Ravens Kickstarter page, the blisters that the factory had made for the packaging weren’t quite the size we wanted, and the coloring of the card-backs were slightly darker than the original Scarabus releases, so we needed to have them correct both of those problems before moving forward on production. Guess what that meant? Yep. The ship date got pushed back a little more. We just don’t feel comfortable shipping a product out to the people who’ve put their own time and their own hard earned money into supporting us on this project until every aspect of it is correct.

Everything now looks great and is now in full production and the factory has told us that everything will be able to ship from their Hong Kong warehouse no later than September 26th (hopefully sooner). We’re assuming that shipping by boat will be 6 to 8 weeks to get to our warehouse in New Jersey, and we’ll begin shipping rewards to Kickstarter backers immediately and before any other pre-orders ship.

We also wanted to let everyone know that we’re planning to begin doing pre-orders on Monday, September 15th at 3:00pm est. for all of the Gothitropolis Ravens items that weren’t Kickstarter exclusives. They’ll be available through our online retail outlet Store Horsemen

As we’ve mentioned before, Eagalus the Screaming Eagle will come in the normal Gothitropolis packaging to all of the Kickstarter backed packages, and when they go on sale at Store Horsemen, they’ll be available for purchase both in the regular packaging and a special patriotic packaging.

But as a thank you to all of our Kickstarter backers for your support and patience, for the first 24 hours – beginning at 3:00pm est on Sunday, September 14th that figure in his special patriotic packaging will also be available for pre-order to all of our KICKSTARTER BACKERS ONLY for 10% off, and will go back to the regular price the next day when the regular sale begins. If anyone who didn’t back us on the Kickstarter Gothitropolis Ravens project attempts to order that figure before 3:00pm est on Monday Sept. 15th, their order will be cancelled without notice.

Once again, thanks SO MUCH to all of you for your continued support and patience. We really do appreciate it!

2015 MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE CLASSICS SUBSCRIPTIONS!

newClubEternia1

Hey all of you Masters of the Universe Classics fans out there! Well, as I’m sure you’re well aware of by now, we got some pretty unsettling news this week. Even though during the San Diego Comic Con it looked like the 2015 Club Eternia subscriptions were selling really well and it looked as if we were going to sail really easily right through the end. We were all amazed at the huge amount of support fans were showing for the line. The 2015 Club Eternia looked like such an early success at that point that we’d even already been discussing with Mattel what we were possibly going to do with 2016 MotU Classics line-ups.

Unfortunately, things seemed to have stalled out just before the end of the original end date for the subscriptions, and we ended up about 10% short of the goal needed to make the 2015 line a reality. We’ve seen people speculating that this might be some sort of ploy by Mattel to boost sales even farther over the percentage needed, but that’s simply not true. We discussed the actual numbers with Scott Neitlich (Mattel’s own ToyGuru) yesterday, and we can assure you that we are indeed just a small amount short of hitting the goal needed to make the 2015 Club Eternia subscription happen.

We’re about 90% there and we just need one little extra bump to get us over the edge. Obviously that’s where you come in, He-Fans and She-Ravers! If you’ve already bought a 2015 Club Eternia subscription – thank you! But your work here isn’t done. Please help to spread the word and let other people know that it’s not to late to jump onboard and help to make MotU Classics one of the most spectacular action figure lines in toy history.

The 2015 MotU Classics: Club Eternia subscriptions are going to re-open tomorrow, Friday, 8/22 at 9:00 am pst, and close on Monday, 8/25 at 11:59pm pst

I mean c’mon… Did you ever think you’d get a Madame Razz or Broom figure in MotU Classics? What about Lizard Man? Gwildor? A New Adventures She-Ra? That awesome Tung Lashor? Mermista? The fan-chosen Huntara? If we don’t make that subscription happen some of those figures may never see the light of day, and we might have to shave O-Dawg’s head just to make us all feel better.

So please, if you can, go over to Matty Collector tomorrow and sign up for your MotU Classics: Club Eternia subscription! Let’s wrap this thing up with a bang, not a whimper. Thanks a TON!!

Jim, Eric, Cornboy, Shane, Sherri and O-Dawg
