Production update for January

Hello everyone

I hope you are doing well.

Thank you again to all the people who came to meet us at the Festival of Angoulême. I will soon make another blog post with the pictures of the event. 

I know you are all waiting for it, so here is this month's prod update. 


XTRA and HQF by TSUME

Kakashi, Madara, Obito, Itachi, Saitama, Grey and Chun-li

Reprints are planned for the second semester 2018.

 

HQS by TSUME

1) Ace

We have approved the electronic engineering while in China and have seen the results of the first molded pieces. All the electronical parts have been received and the production will start at the end of the Chinese New Year. 

Shipments from Luxembourg are planned for the end of the first semester 2018.  


2) Adolf

We have reviewed the painting of the first factory samples and noticed the really high quality of the work done. 

Shipments from Luxembourg are planned for the end of the first semester 2018. 

3) Aiolia 

The last shipments will be made mid-February to mid-March. You will receive your tracking number as soon as your statue is ready. Shops should be delivered from end of February to end of March.  

4) Aiolos 

We have done our best at the factory but we will need some more time in order to finalize Aiolos. The stamps for the eyes are the most critical parts of the statue and we asked the factory to come back on them to get a level that will reach your expectations. 

The shipments from Luxembourg are planned for the first semester 2018.  

5) Deathmask 

Engineering is done. The first casts are very promising. All the improvements and the optimisations we have set in place internally can be clearly felt in the factory. We hope this will allow us to improve the production speed. Thank you to all the team that continuously work to improve our work. It is not easy but quite rewarding! 

Shipments from Luxembourg are planned for the first quarter 2019.  

6) Genos 

The engineering of Genos is 80% done. We were able to check the PVC cast of Genos and improve it, as well as the electronical parts. A last full prototype should reach us in March for a final approval and production will then start immediately in order to have a first batch of shipments for the first semester 2018.  

7) Goku vs Nappa 

The production of Goku vs Nappa is advancing well. We were able to check the production lines in China and do the last adjustments. A first part of the production is done and should arrive mid-March. The rest of the production will go on and a part will be shipped to us every month.  

8) Rei 

The factory just received the master paint after the final approval by the licencors. The work of pre-engineering will start in March, after the Chinese New Year. 

The shipments from Luxembourg are planned for the first semester 2019. 

9) Saitama :

Engineering is done. We have checked the first casts of Saitama and the result is really good. 

The shipments are planned for the first quarter 2019.  

HQS+ By TSUME

1) Broly

The prototype just arrived at the factory. The pre-engineering will start after the Chinese New Year. 

Shipments from Luxembourg are planned for the first semester 2019.

2) Grendizer 

The production is advancing well. The metal plates and the packaging have been approved. A first part of the production is done and will arrive in Luxembourg mid-March. It will continue over the next few months and be shipped little by little. 

3) Madara 

We have made a review of the first cast of the factory. The result is very impressive. We are pondering on the best way to ensure transportation of such a massive and heavy statue. Madara represents a great challenge for the team. We hope to ship the first pieces at the end of 2018. 

4) Vegeta :

As for Grendizer, the production is well advanced. Metal plates and the packaging have been chosen. A first part of the production is done and will arrive mid-March. The rest will be shipped by batch over the next few months.  

And that is it for today. The whole team gave it their all to ensure you get top-notch products from the factory. 

As Cyril announced on our Facebook page, 3 new XTRA are being produced. Laxus is also advancing well.
