Not the end of the world.... BUT....

I woke up this morning and the world is still here but the forum and shopping cart databases seemed to have come to an Apocalypse of their own :)

We are working on getting that fixed.

Unboxing of the beast

This is a HUGE kit, the box is 12"X10"X10"!

You can see by the use of stacking trays, foam and a vacuum formed insert, we have taken great care to protect your investment.

Enjoy!














The screws are used on ball joints and other components that need tension to work properly.
You can quite literally leave this kit poseable for months or years of play if you choose, the tension created by the ball joints is more than enough to have the kit retain its pose. At any point a drop or two of model cement will lock everything into a fixed pose, but until you decide exactly what pose you would like… you are free to play.

Watching the legs and torso move with working hydraulics is a pretty fun experience ;)

Stage 1 ship date

As of today we estimate stage one will arrive in the WGF Utah warehouse the last week of January.

I will have more pics to post as they come in from WGF China.

Here are a few shots of Ada, a Kickstarter special mini and the first of the female Stormtroopers to see plastic.

Cheers!

Some shots of the plastic and the current release schedule.


I am currently elbow deep in prepping stage three models for the Kickstarter, I must apologize for not being on top of my emails, as this aspect takes me away from the day to day operations.

I thought it would be best to give an expected release date here so that you have some frame of reference when these kits will be available for general purchase. The Kickstarter backers are my main priority but all the kits will hit the supply chain shortly after the backer’s items have been shipped.

I do not have retail pricing yet, and will likely not have them until each phase is ready to head out the door.

Guess what landed on my doorstep!


Here is a look at some of the sprues and an assembled trooper. It’s a bit dark out so I needed to use my desk magnifier lamp to get some shots. I will try to get some larger clearer images when I can get some decent lighting.

I am quite frankly amazed at the level of crisp detail they were able to reproduce while dealing with the direction of pull from the mold halves. WGF did an amazing job…. My hat is off to them.





 
 
A few spru shots before I tore into them ;)
