Vitruvian Hacks Delivery Update
Boss Fight Studio just released an announcement about the delivery dates for their Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. line! It looks like it could be a great winter this year.
Boss Fight Studio sent out this announcement today:
When we started Boss Fight Studio almost two and a half years ago, we knew we wanted to do more than freelance development for other companies – our main goal was to develop our own product. Something without compromise, that we could stand behind, that would be among the best collectible toys out there. Thanks to all of you, the Kickstarter campaign was successful beyond all expectations. Since this was our first crowd funding campaign, the flip side of this success was that we ended up adding far more items than we had initially planned on, and development on those additional items took time.
As many of you already know, we’ve also been dealing with some manufacturing hiccups on the product for our friends at Marauder “Gun-Runners”. We’ve been intimately involved with the entire process, and Marauder is using the same factory that we’d already sourced for HACKS. We wanted to make sure that the Marauder Task Force figures were dead-on, primarily to follow through with our friend Marauder John, but also because, if the factory that we’re partnered with couldn’t get these right, it wasn’t going to be the right place for Vitruvian HACKS.
Well, we’re happy to report that the factory went above and beyond to meet the high quality expectations of MGR and BFS. Including completely re-running the entire production run of MTF figures, and hiring new employees to do exacting quality-control checks. On our recent trip to China, we were able to witness these changes first hand and reaffirm that we are partnered with the right people, who care about delivering top-notch products. Partners who are 100% committed to forging long lasting relationships, with both BFS and MGR, for years to come. The delay to our original manufacturing window was significant, but in the end, it will be worth it.
We have been told to expect our first test-shots for review in the middle of August. This represents a significant milestone in the process and we cant wait to share photos with you all! We have also been informed that, due to the large number of items, production of our order will be split into two groups shipping approximately one month apart. If all goes relatively smoothly, we are looking at a 4th quarter delivery window. We wish it was sooner, but the complexity of the figures and sheer number of items will take time to manufacture. We can’t thank you guys enough for your support and patience. When we have more info, pics, whatever, they’ll be passed on to you without delay.
Andrew, Fred, Dave, Erik and Catrina.
