Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

Yeah, the worldwide pandemic has really started to annoy us as well.

We are working hard to get these done as quickly as we can. With such a low production number (around 150) combined with massive backlogs at the factory this production run has been bumped countless times for other larger companies productions. It's unfortunate, but until the backlog at the factory is cleared we are against the ropes.

As far as future Frazetta statues go at this moment we are not planning on any further releases. It's becoming more and more difficult to produce runs of less than 150 statues. Our factory's current MOQ is 300 and this run was grandfathered in but they won't do that any more for us.
We will be sending out a detailed message next week regarding our expected timelines. Sorry everyone, we are trying to get this done as quickly as possible.

Don't take it personally. Every statue collector gets annoyed at delays. An earthquake could destroy the factory and we would still be annoyed.

Quarantine just posted some painted samples on Facebook.

Sadly Gabriel Marquez the sculptor who did Egyptian Queen for Reelart passed away. I donít know from what but he was pretty young like maybe around 50 I think? Anybody know what he died of? He was posting on FB pretty close to the end so I think may have been sudden?

He also sculpted the base and panthers for our CatGirl. He was a wonderful person to work with and i am sad i never got to meet him in person. But he was always a pleasure to talk to.

I know he was suffering was thyroid cancer but we had thought he beat it. Dont know much beyond that. Its a tragedy.
