iMech News 2.25.2014

This month we talk about delays, more delays and some more delays… eventually. For whatever reason, for things out of my control, seemingly everything has been suffering from some manner of delay recently. This will change shortly however as I have 4 new products printed and ready for the caster. Plus more news….

The Walrus and Porpoise Assault Troopers »

It’s only been up in the store for a week or two now for preorders, but I just got word that the Walrus and Porpoise kits are either already in the mail to me or will be in the next few days. Regardless, they’re done so we’re ahead of schedule!

Preorder the Walrus APC ($130) and the accompanying Porpoise Assault Troops ($35) together and save $5!

Black Moth Preorder Date »

Since the Walrus is done, the caster is moving on to the Black Moth [Heavy] next. I asked them to delay casting a few weeks so everything doesn’t come to me (and you) at once (been there, done that, everyone hated it) so I’ll begin preorders for the Black Moth [Heavy] 1:8 scale figure on March 7th 2014.

1/35 Sea Birds »

Sea Birds are being cast as we speak. They will be $15 for a set of 8 birds, 2 Pelicans and 2x each of the gulls, and most will have photoetch feet and/or legs. Click here to preorder!

Her Majesty’s Estafette »

Always something delaying the Her Majesty’s Estafette kit, but we’re finally in the home stretch. The caster will have the last of the parts today (was missing the headlamp lens) and production will begin in a few weeks if it hasn’t already. Stay tuned for the final price and preorder date some time in March.

Restocks »

I’ll have some Chrononauts and Rooks back in-stock in a few weeks for those that have preordered and are waiting for the next batch, or for those that are waiting for it to be here. Will have the pilots for the last of the current Red Star 47 batch soon as well and will be able to ship those to everyone who’s been waiting.

Remora, Frankenstein, and Other Delays »

The caster for the Remora and Frankenstein has been having some random issues and set-backs. The Remoras should be in-hand this weekend however and he’ll start Frankenstein’s next batch right after it. He’s been working alone and with a new rubber (which he says will mean better castings) which has been the main cause of the delays. So it’s for a good reason I think. Better is always… better… even if it’s a little late.

Also been waiting on the valve wheels for the Gasses set so I can start shipping those sets out. They were not added to the original fret so it’s caused some delays. I’ll have them in 2 weeks. Thanks for your patience!

Amazing Figure Modeler #56 »

And ending on a high note, check out Amazing Figure Modeler #56 not only for their typically awesome build-ups and articles, (seriously… every issue is gold!) but because there’s a 7-page interview with me about Industria Mechanika and our way of doing things.

Thanks for your support!
