iMech News 8.28.2012

Been a few weeks (okay, 5 weeks) since the last update. I’ve been crazy busy getting the Fall wave of models ready for production and preorders. This update isn’t showing off any unannounced products, but will give you a better idea of what’s almost ready to go!

1/24 Sasha/Barrio Sale!

The introductory PREORDER SALE on the 1/24 scale Sasha and Barrio Guy will be ending on 8/31 2012. Preorder them now before the price jumps to the MSRP. I saw some samples before they went to my UK dist for painting and they look amazing. Collapse did a fine job on the casting. Preorder them here »

Prof. FichtenFoo’s Implausible Long-Nosed Submersible

The master for my new Fish Sub design is just about ready for production. The 3D pilot/seat designed by Christophe Desse was completed last night so as soon as I get thew print back, this goes to the caster. The photoetch and laser-cut windows are already done and in production. Here’s some images of the box art and master.

Scott Robertson’s Orbship

The Orbship is in production as we speak so I should be able to start preorders in next week. I recieved a sample batch of the laser-cut windows and they turned out really nice. Below is a pic of the windows as they come. They have a thin semi-clear plastic film on both sides that needs to be removed, but after you remove that film (which makes for a great mask!) the windows are super clear acrylic! I completed the box art and instructions are 99% done, just need to add the figure details to them.

Jake Parker’s Chompbot #5/Figures

The Chompbot is still in production. I should have a sample of the resin next week. The figures are also in production but those might take a little longer. Meanwhile, I completed the wrap-around labels for the figure boxes. Set A is the 4 Chomp Troopers and set B is both Chomp Pilots. Only the seated pilot comes with the Chompbot. The standing can be purchased separately and comes with an additional seated pilot perfect for using in cars, tanks, planes, etc!
