Progress and Possible Setbacks
Good news first: the designs for the Dr Wily, Gutsman, Met Octopus Battery, Tackle Fire and Yellow Devil miniatures have now been delivered to the printer! This is a very important step in the process to get the miniatures created, and that means we're one step closer! There are a few more things that will need to be done after we get the first run of miniatures created, but we're very excited to share this news with everyone.
Now, the possible bad news: when we launched this product, we gave ourselves a ton of cushion to get everything approved because we knew it would be a difficult process. However, it seems that even the generous amount of time we set aside may not be enough. There is a chance that we might not have the game ready in time for our intended October release date. A few of our miniatures (WE'RE LOOKING AT YOU, MEGA MAN) have been revised more times than we can count; each time it's just a little tweak, but it's still a tweak, which means it takes longer time.
What that means, of course, is that these products are meticulously detailed and 100% meet Capcom's standards, which, for you as fans, means you'll get some of the best Mega Man miniatures ever created (if you don't mind us saying so ourselves). While it might mean more time is needed, the final product is going to be exceedingly faithful to the Mega Man series, and we think that our fans will appreciate that.
We will keep everyone updated, but we wanted to remain open and honest about the development process.
Thanks for your patience, and we'll be sharing with you all more updates as they come! In the mean time, feel free to post comments on Kickstarter, join the conversation on Twitter, or like us on Facebook.
