Great news about the consideration for the COA's. I definitely don't mind having one shipped out later on for Sagat as long as there's a chance to get one and hopefully have it be a regular thing for the rest.

I personally don't care about artwork on the COA if that's going to be yet another approval nightmare. Any 'official' COA that you guys package with each statue would be good enough in my opinion and doesn't NEED to have a picture or artwork on it. Hell, you could just incorporate a picture of an assembled but unpainted kit for each COA that corresponded to each character. That way, if the character meets final approval, then the COA design would too.

Not sure I like this decal business, but I guess it needs to be that way since these are kits. But okay sweet, if everything goes as planned I imagine these will ship out Friday or Saturday and we should have our tracking numbers over the weekend. Cool!

You guys may also wanna update the website, the time for this has long passed: http://www.prototypezstudios.com/comingsoonryu.htm

initially, we got quotes for preprinted boxes, but at a smaller scale, like 150, it was running up to $10+ dollars per box, and the idea of tossing out $10 when the kit is assembled doesn't help us keep the cost down. We'd rather save the collectors as much as possible and keep the cost in the actual product itself, i.e. high quality resin and solid. Hence, there won't be fancy foamy packaging either, that ran about $30 per kit since the foam had to be custom cut and we can only use them for one character. So we decided to keep it simple but secure. The packaging boxes are extremely durable, and so is the shipping box to go with it.

a definite possiblity on the ship dates, pending no delays on the engraved tags. i'll check on those today and update you guys as well as the website for the non-forum fans.

Done, but we all wanted to be Namor, so green speedos might not really work too well.

Great idea!

1. The decals I mailed to J last week and he should be getting it tomorrow or Wednesday. This is the cover to the boxes.
2. Next is the 2"x2" engraved tag (black with silver text), that says "Sculpted by Erick Sosa" and "___ of ____". We will add the numbers by hand. You can add these to the base of the sculpt after its painted. This is scheduled to arrive shipped direct to Fenix also on Wednesday. He'll add this to the package and bingo, our first ever product finally ships.
Thank God!

Hey you know what I misunderstood. I thought the decals were what we were going to be sticking to the bottom of the kits, I missed the part about the engraved tags that we'll be attaching. Thanks for the update.

Just a quick update, Fenix has received the decals and the engraved tags. I just have to send him the list of all the orders so he can number them based on time of order.

Also, we are starting this run at #1 of 150. No vaults here. But the company will have an AP set that will be in reserve for our private collections.
