Bill has shared an Eagle Force Returns Kickstarter Update alongside the update shared for the Larry Hama action figure. The verbiage noted here is similar to what was shared earlier. Here’s the scoop –
Factory challenges update
Sadly I don’t have much to report as it’s Chinese New Year and the factories in China go dark for most of late Jan – late Feb.
I breaks me to write these monthly updates, will little news of progress. The factory in China we chose to do business with has not held up their end nor been able to commit to a realistic schedule. They continue to make empty promises to us on delivery timelines for all of our current projects including Eagle Force, Larry Hama and Amazing Heroes. This is not only effecting our business but Spero toys as well, who produce the “Animal Warriors of the Kingdom” line. Although this factory was able to produce their initial wave, they has fallen behind with subsequent waves.
There is some light at the end of this tunnel, a few industry veterans who are currently working in China have generously offered to help us get our projects back on track after Chinese New Year. They and their team will be visiting the factory and help project manage our projects to completion. I am very confident with their help, we can turn a corner and get these figures in your hands with the quality you expect. We’ll of course keep you updated as the factory returns from Chinese New Year next month, as well be communicating with them daily.
Many of you have asked about future waves and other projects, please understand that those need to be on “pause” for now until we get these figures in your hands.
Thanks again sticking with us as we continue to work though these challenges. As always please feel free to reach out to us directly with any questions, as you know we are here and not going anywhere.
I know that Bill is doing all possible to ensure that we get a quality product for our investment. Godspeed to the team in achieving their objective.
I’ll be sure to bring you more details as they’re received.
