L’Estafette Renders »

Christophe Desse has posted some fantastic renders of his upcoming 1/35 scale L’Estafette. I love these because they look like finished plastic figures. Cool stuff coming in May 2013!

FichtenFoo’s Orb Ship Build-up »

[singlepic id=1065 w=420 h= float=]

I finished up my Orb Ship build-up last week after putting it aside for several months while working on other masters and product launches. It’s a really fun build and if you haven’t had a chance to get one, you can preorder the next edition on Friday. Here’s the pics of my build-up and more detailed info/tutorials on the build can be found on my blog at FichtenFoo.com.

Greetings from beyond the… something… something! Time for another iMech news update.

Slight Red Star 47 Delay »

[singlepic id=974 w=420 h= float=]

Terribly sorry as I just found out yesterday… I was expecting Red Star 47 resin around February 5th, but the delivery has been pushed a week or two back to around the 10th-15th of February. You can thank the flu for this one unfortunately. But I’ll have the boxes labeled, prefilled with etch, decals, instructions and wire and ready to go as soon as the resin is in-hand.

The Ground Crew and Pilot sets are still on-time and non-bundled orders of those will go out as planned.

Kallamity’s Kastor (on-time!) »

[singlepic id=973 w=420 h= float=]

Just an update that the resin is on-time and the Kastor preorders will be shipping on February 6th!

Preorder your Kastor Hovertank here!

Christophe Desse Submariners PLUS »

[singlepic id=972 w=420 h= float=]

Here’s a photo I received yesterday from the 3D printer of the Submariner prints. Looking cool! And what’s that seated guy on the left-hand side for? Why that’s a pilot for the original Fish-Shaped Submersible! He’ll be sold separately for those of you that want a pilot for your prior and future Fantastical Fish Sub orders. All will be available for preorder in February along with the new Implausible Long-Nosed Fish-Shaped Submersible.

Rook and Pawn Brigade Figure Prints »

[singlepic id=971 w=420 h= float=]

Last but not least, here’s another photo I received from the printer yesterday of the Rook pilot (2/kit) and the Pawn Brigade masters.

iMech 2013 Flyer #1 »

And a look at our next printed flyer for shows and packages. This is the back, but the front… the front is a secret unannounced product!

iMech News 1.14.2013

Hi everyone. So it’s been about 1 year now since our first official Industria Mechanika product, Ian McQue’s Remora started shipping out. Since then we’ve done two more editions of it and a LOT of other products. Thank you all again for your support. I know the economy is crap right now, but our collaborators, vendors and I appreciate your business and loyalty as many of you are repeat customers, some of whom have bought every kit we’ve released. I know our release schedule is… random at best. I really try to keep the schedule on track, but with different collaborators (with full-time jobs aside from this), casters and vendors all contributing to the same products, plus with 30+ different products in production at any given time, that can be difficult. The holiday season has wreaked havok on it as well, but we adapt and carry on! So without further adieu, the news…

Michael Herm’s Rook »

Sorry, sorry, sorry!!!! This has been pushed back a little more, so for those of your emailing me, concerned that you missed it (about 50 of you so far, LOL!) no worries! I reset the preorder start date to 2.15.2013 (Be sure to click the notify link on the order page to get an email when it’s ready and add our sales@ address to your NOT SPAM filter.) and that should be the last reset.

[singlepic id=966 w=420 h= float=]

There was a few items that needed last minute tweaks noticed by the 3D printer… parts that were too thin to cast properly. I love that they check our work to help ensure a great end product! We’re also working on finalizing the box art and I should be able to start on the instructions this week as well. What I don’t want to do is start a preorder-period that ends up extended with production delays. That’s happened a few times and it’s a hassle for you guys. Better we have a good idea on the actual release date and do the preorder start a few weeks (not months) before that. Again, sorry for the delays, but this will be an amazing kit. So to summarize:

Rook/Pawn Preorder Start Date: No later than 2.15.2013
Rook/Pawn Shipping Date: No later than 3.15.2013
Rook Price: TBD (depends on casting/print costs)
Pawn Price: TBD (depends on casting/print costs)

Ian McQue’s Waldo First Look »

I’ve been hinting at this one for a while now and finally you can see what’s coming up!

[singlepic id=964 w=420 h= float=]

The 1/35 scale Waldo is a smaller airship than the Remora with a hull length of about 14cm/5.5in and width of 5.5cm/3in. It’s more of a tug/maintenance craft than a hauler, but will feature a cargo rack on the transom that you can fill up with all manner of storage. This kit will be a truly multimedia experience with a laser-cut wood deck (prototype seen below), photoetch wheelhouse/roof and details, resin parts, decals, and various threads and wires.

I (FichtenFoo) am working on the master currently which is why I haven’t done a paint-up of many of our recent releases yet. The Waldo is about 60% done I think. I had the hull 3D-printed without details so that I can add those myself. I’m doing it this way mainly because it’s a difficult hull shape and I wanted the laser-cut deck to fit nicely. I also needed the hull to be hollow so that I can add a full engine inside of it since you should be able to see through deck grating, all the way through the ship creating a really nice layered effect.

[singlepic id=965 w=420 h= float=]

I expect to be finished with the master in February at which time it’ll go immediately into production. Not sure of the final price yet as there’s a lot of components to price as you can imagine. Hopefully the Waldo will be shipping some time in May. Watch for it to be added to the store for notifications soon!

Red Star 47 Print Materials »

The Red Star’s print materials are going to the printer today and will be back early next week in plenty of time for the release. Here’s a preview and be sure to preorder yours here »

iMech News 12.26.12

Happy Holidays to all of our fantastic customers! Hope you enjoyed Xmas and if the fat guy in the red suit didn’t bring you what you wanted, we got you covered! Speaking of RED…

[singlepic id=946 w=420 h= float=]

The Red Star 47, Ground Crew, and Flight Ready (Pilots) are now available for PREorder in the Industria Mechanika Shop! These kits are one of our most requested in the notification system so won’t last long. Save up to $10 by ordering the two figure sets together with the Red Star 47 flyer.

This PREORDER ships around February 10, 2013!

[singlepic id=945 w=420 h= float=]

Just like the T-Zero, we’re offering the extra Red Star 47 decals as a separate product as well. These are the same cool soviet inspired decals that come with the Red Star 47 kit. Use them for related projects, in case you mess up those included with the kit, or for whatever you imagination desires! In stock now!

iMech News 11.18.2012

Hi Everyone! I’m not even sure where to begin this time as so much has been happening. I’ll start off with an upcoming product announcement, detail some changes/additions to the store, touch on the upcoming changes to the “notify me” system, talk about sales, and finally the usual housekeeping in regards to preorders, restockes, etc…

Christophe Desse’s ‘Estafette’ »

If you follow Industria Mechanika or Christophe Desse on Facebook, you may already be aware of this one. For those not in the loop, we present “Her Majesty’s Estafette” by Christophe Desse! Christophe Desse is the same artist that’s bringing us the Red Star 47, Flight Ready, Ground Crew, Aviators and Submariners! In other words, he’s doing a LOT of stuff for iMech and there’s lot’s more to come! Look for this to be available in April 2013.

New iMech Release Schedule »

Speaking of April 2013, I’ve been checking over everything we’ve got in production currently and making a more structured release schedule. This first year of our business has been hit and miss with the release schedule due to various things, but one can either learn from the mistakes or keep repeating them. I’ve always valued the mistakes as they help us evolve. I feel like we’re finally at a point where we can reliably meet our schedule thanks to our now utilizing 4-5 different casting firms and having a backlog of completed projects to pull from. Now we can with some degree of certainty hit our scheduled preorder/release dates. We’ve got 40+ different pieces current;y in production, most of which we’ve not announced! So stay tuned (and start saving) for an amazing 2013!

The New iMech Store »

I don’t know about you guys, but the new store is making things a LOT easier and more organized. One of the new features for those that register with the store is the ability to sign-up for an upcoming newsletter as well as recieve real-time notifications to changed made on the individual products. This means we’ll be phasing out the old “Notify Me” system and start using the built-in store one. You’ll have to register, but it’ll be worth the trouble. This also means that any new product we announce will also be entered into the store system. It’ll say out of stock, but you’ll be able to see the expected release date so you can plan ahead. The main list is at the bottom of the store home page. Here’s what’s listed so far:

Item Name Date Expected
Her Majesty’s Estafette 04/01/2013

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!

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.

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.

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!

New Hornethopter Pilots Set »

First I must apologize to Christophe Desse for not posting these sooner! He redesigned the Hornethopter pilots based loosely on my original hand-sculpts for the first few editions. The seated pilot will be available with the next release of the Hornethopter, while all four will be available as a separate set. No idea on price yet, but expect them in the store within 6-8 weeks.

Fish Sub Pilot Beginnings »

Christophe Desse is also busy designing a pilots set for the original and upcoming MkII Fish-Shaped submersibles. The next edition (6th) of the Mk I may not come with the figure, (as it won’t be ready in time for the next edition) but the first edition of the Mk II will and a sub pilots set including the seated pilots (for those that purchased the first 5 editions of the Mk I sub) will be available for everyone around the time of the Mk II release. Below you can see the base figure. Other pilot versions will have an old-timey tank-top swim suit style, hats, breathers, etc…

[singlepic id=799 w=420 float=]

 

Derek Stenning’s Dystopic Update »

Not much new to show here, but I wanted to let everyone know that Dystopic is coming soon! The print will be done in 4-5 days I’m told, then clean-up, then onto production. We’re still looking at October for a preorder/release. Below you can see how the parts-breakup will look. Each color is a separate printed kit part.

[singlepic id=800 w=420 float=]

 

Futuristic Loader Update »

A few new images of the Futuristic loader. I brought up that there was no leg support for this heavy lifter so the team collaborated and came up with this great-looking result. I’ve added it to the calendar as a tentative November preorder/release.

Hi everyone! I’ve been on a family vacation to the beach this past week so haven’t been as in-touch as usual. Hotel had great wi-fi of course, but the netbook I took is crap! Got back yesterday after a 9-hour drive home with kids in the car (Fun!) and am getting to your emails and questions as fast as possible. Hopefully this post will help.

Today I’ve got preorder updates for Sasha and Deckhands, images of many master prints including the Red Star 47, Sasha and Barrio 1/24, and Dustbuster pilot, and probably a few more informational tidbits.

First up is the preorder info. I have several casters working diligently on getting these done so that I can get them out the door and into your hands.
Sasha 1/35:
I am told I’ll have her casts by 6.14.2012. Otherwise the boxes are filled with wire and ready to go.
Sasha 1/32:
Replacement casts should be shipping next week as well to those of you that filled out the replacement form.
Deckhands 1/35: Different caster from Sasha, he’s aiming to ship the rest of the 1/35’s I need to cover preorders to me on Monday 6.11.2012 So by the end of next week they should be boxed and out the door.
Deckhands 1/24:
Same caster as 1/35’s, aiming to ship those to me by Wednesday 6.13.2012 so they’ll start shipping the week of the 18th.
Other upcoming preorder items:

Restocks! »

We’ve sold out of a LOT of items this past month and will be casting new editions of some of your favorites.
Remora:
We’re still aiming for a July restock of these. Fifty of the 3rd Edition kits will be available for preorder next month.
Sasha 1/35:
We’ve not got the first 100 out the door, but there’s been a lot of interest in her. As soon as I can get the first ones done I’ll start a preorder for the next batch.
Hornethopter: Lots of interest in this little beastie after we sold the last 10 at Wonderfest. I’ll attempt to restock these in August or September…. need to get some of our new scheduled releases out the door first.
Kastor: Same as the Hornethopter… planning to restock this one early Fall 2012.

Red Star 47 »

Here’s the first images of the master print taken by Ownage prior to shipping. As soon as I receive it I’ll snap more images, create the photoetch parts (since I need to do measurements) then send it off to David Guertin for casting.

Here’s the first shot of the driver print taken by Ownage.  Like the Red Star, as soon as I get it, more pics, PE design, then off to production at Collapse Industries.
