Hate to be negative, but the lack of updates both here and on Facebook has me a bit concerned about this project.
i bet they just have a lot to do, this is there side job after all
Just posted more photos on fb. If someone wants to post them here, by all means. Can't do it from my phone.
I'm also interested to hear about:
-Will the final piece be including the awesome ladder?
-What about/what happened to the chains on the jawbridge?
-How are the magnetic cover pieces working out on the final product?
Keep up the great work fellas! We are all thrilled with the way this is shaping up, and can't wait to support your next creation!
As for the questions above:
1. We were thinking the ladder would be a limited piece at first, but we're not sure now. I'm thinking we'll include it.
2. We forgot about the chains when prepping the Fortress for the comic store, lol. By the time I remembered them it was too late, but yeah, the chains are still a part of it.
3. The magnetic wall covers are working, but not as well as I had hoped. We are using really small rare earth magnets, and it's not easy to get them to come into contact with each other. We are switching magnets, I have some others that should work great.
By the way, much of my last message was in response to a specific post that has been deleted, and was not meant to address the whole .org community, which has been very supportive by and large!
PM sent with Questions about the fortress.
hey guys, here are some of the photos we posted on fb that never made their way here! enjoy!
This is beyond words... PERFECTION!
I love how well the playset works with both vintage and new figures. 200x also I'm sure. :hmgrin:
it really does seem to be coming along fantastically! as for the chains... yay! (love the look of those on this.)
as for the ladder... absolutely an enthusiastic resounding YES! include it!! *smile*
as for the magnetic pieces... i was wondering if that might be an issue... sounds like you have a "plan b" in effect to improve it though...
you guys are making something truly special here, and while it is hard NOT to be impatient, i do hope we're all being supportive and not too much of a bother!
you've been busy casting you say... are you casting several at once, then going back and assembling/cleaning/painting, OR, are you working on one in full at a time? just curious, and as to how many you've turned out thus far. :)
thanks again. keep up the awesome work!
I'm so glad I wasn't there. It would have been so hard to obey that :do not touch" sign! :hmlol:
Heya bud, been trying to contact you for some time......
Bishart: I have tried to realch you on 2-3 different ways now. The fact that you keep not answering makes me really worried a bit. PLEASE get back to me!
According to the solicitation email I received from Ben in April 2011 "we can begin actually casting this thing, as early as next week". This item is over a YEAR late, with no schedule update.
I haven't received a reply to my email messages either, I agree that this is becoming very worrisome.
So, as number 4 I loose the ladder as a perk?
But I am still 4th, so that is good. :)
its hard to work on it, and everything else when were checking in on the thread and replying to the many many ( you cant even imagine) Pm's.
that being said. here i am! sorry about the lack of updates here. its hard to come by and just say the same thing all the time. which basically is, YES we are casting, its as exciting as that really. its a TON of work, and were on it. there is not much were even ALLOWED to say on here, but trust me, when there is something to tell you i will email you. those of you emailing me about purchasing this piece, im sorry, they are not for sale. so please stop emailing me.
you have to try to realize how many of the same emails i get from people, many times from the same people over and over again. we cant reply to them all and still get this work done. this is a HUGE custom project that is taking much longer than even we anticipated. trust me, we didnt want it to last this long, or be this much work either. we are working. and when there is something to report, we will report it.
i dont know what you would like me to say, sorry if i come off as short, or frustrated, were just busy at work on this, its that simple, we cant be expected to stop and say hello multiple times a month. sorry. theres not much i can even say here, on he-man.org, without breaking their rules. you will be personally notified when there is news. i dont think anyone wants these finished more than us. we are working on it. i dont know what else to say. sorry.
ps: i really dont mean to come off nasty. hope i dont. just please continue to do your best to be patient. we are working really hard.
