iMech News 11.12.2016

Hello everyone and sorry for the news hiatus. It’s been a rather busy year for restocking existing designs, but now we’re gonna end 2016 on a high note and show off some of the upcoming products we’ve been working on. I’m trying to not announce items too far away from their actual releases as it causes confusion as to what’s already been produced and what may be out of stock. Everything below should be ready during the 1st qtr of 2017. Unless a master is ruined (like Frankenstein) we’ll always make more of your favorite designs provided there is enough interest to justify the expense. Better to put the funds towards new designs rather than stuff that might sit on our shelves. So if you want to purchase OOS designs, please let us know so we can gauge interest properly. With that being said, now onto the news!

Michael Herm’s Knight »

I know it’s been a while, but the Knight, Michael Herm’s follow up to the Rook and Pawn Brigade, is currently at the caster, photoetch is in production, and print materials will be here tomorrow so that when the resin and PE arrives I can hit the ground running. Preorders will start any day now, just waiting on one more vendor’s costs to finalize the pricing. I’m not sure that it will arrive before Christmas, but at the latest we should be shipping out preorders in January.

Knight Arms

I can’t stress enough that one of the Knight’s coolest features is also one you need to pay attention to when placing your order. There are 7 different arm combinations/load-outs you can select from when ordering the Knight based on its 3 different arm types. (while supplies last) 3 are double of the same weapon, 3 are two different weapons, and 1 is 1x of each arm type (3 total arms) so that you can select your choice later and have a spare for whatever you desire. The 3x option has an additional charge. Please be certain to select the load-out you want before adding to the cart to avoid additional shipping charges.  Each arm will work on the left or right so no need to worry about that.

Knight Preorders

Preorders will start soon. Watch this spot for updated information on when they go live. Order yours as soon as possible so you don’t have to wait on a restock to get the load-out you want. Thanks! Restocks of the Rook and Pawn Brigade (as supplies are currently low) are already in the queue!

Ben Mauro’s Gorilla »

Also at the caster is Ben Mauro’s Gorilla with 3D sculpting by Stefano Bernardi. Preorders for this fantastic posable 1/35 scale mecha drone will begin in December and should start shipping in January 2017. The Gorilla comes with 1 figure and a custom deluxe decal set.

Adrian Smith’s Scrap Goblins »

And now for the first of our new upcoming kit announcements! First up we’ve got the Scrap Goblins: Engineer and Lackey. This pair of tech hunters was conceptualized by Adrian Smith with 3D sculpting by Rishi Nandlaskar. This same pair designed our Mushroom Goblin and Chrononaut kits! This pair will be sold separately with the “Engineer” being the first release with preorders starting in January 2017. Following soon after him will be his “Lackey”. The Engineer has already been printed and is at the caster with the Lackey (of course) following right on his heels. These are considered 1:1 scale, the same as the Mushroom Goblin with a head height each of approximately 175mm (7in) not including the Lackey’s backpack. I’m looking forward to seeing build-ups of this pair together with additional scrap parts. At 1:1 scale, you can go crazy with scenic extras from your own junk drawer!

Ian McQue’s Wasps Set »

The next Ian McQue airship kit is actually a two-ship set! The Wasp Scout Flyers, sculpted by Michael Fichtenmayer with figures sculpted by Rishi Nandlaskar, will come two to a kit with each ship featuring a different pilot and upper engine configuration. The result is a perfect Ian McQue look and feel of cobbling together ships from scrap. Not only will you get 2 ships, but the set also includes an additional standing pilot, deluxe decal sheet, photoetch details, and laser-cut windscreens. Watch out for more details and the Wasps preorders to begin early this winter!

iMech News 6.5.2014

So much going on! SO MUCH!!!! It’s been a crazy couple of months with preparing for Wonderfest and failing to complete 2 out of 4 of the planned new releases in time for the show. BUT… these releases are still coming and soon. So let’s get to the good stuff….

WonderFest USA 2014 Wrap-Up »

2014wfbooth

Wonderfest was a few days ago and it was a total blast… what I got to see of it anyway as most of my time was spent behind the table. But I got to see a lot of you that I met last year and meet a bunch of you for the first time. I’ve already purchased my table for next year (moving from #7 to #80) so will get to see everyone again. There was only one iMech product in the show which was pretty disappointing (discussing it with everyone here) so I’m looking into doing a Best iMech award if only in an unofficial fashion. Stay tuned for that!

JerseyFest Aug 1-3 2014 »

I didn’t make it to Jerseyfest last year for a variety of reasons, but this year it’s going to happen. I already booked the hotel and table so it’s on! The Best iMech award is going to happen at that show for sure so get your build-ups done and on the tables in the contest! I’m not sure what the award will be yet… at least a trophy… probably a gift cert for the shop too, but it should be fun regardless to see a bunch of our build-ups in one place! Hope to see you there!

Online iMech Contest? »

And to not leave our VERY large international contingent in the lurch, we’ll be doing an online contest soon as well. This will likely be an end of the year contest, something like a Best iMech build-up of 2014 and will happen in early January. Start your build-ups now, take GOOD photos of the entire process (because that’s awesome for everyone), and details will come.

The Hopper »

hopper_med

Preorders for the Hopper start in less than 12 hours from now! This large and very cool aircraft by Calum Watt and Stefano Bernardi will retail at $160 each + Shipping.

Bella »

Our 1/35 scale Bella, by Pedram Karimfazli, is now available for orders. There are not too many left from this first batch of 50 so I put in an order for another batch which should be here in about 30 days. She’s only $15 for a limited time so get her here.

Sasha in 1/20! »

sasha20_med
