Ready yourselves

The time is here. According to the information I have, the factory is most likely going to schedule pickup of our shipment around Wednesday of next week. They expect to be done with packaging on Tuesday.

This means that we are about to lock in the addresses, so you will need to log into Backerkit and update your shipping information if you need to. It's a good idea to double check anyway.  We will be locking those in place in about a week.

Due to the impending tariffs scheduled for the end of the month, we opted to pay for Air Freight shipping from China, so the up side of that is that fulfillment should begin in about 3 to 4 weeks instead of 8 weeks. The down side is the additional $7,000 it's going to cost (above our original shipping budget) to keep out from under the potential 25% tariff. It's a crappy situation, but it was spend the additional $7K to avoid potentially $50K+.

I'll be ordering the t-shirts/stickers in the next few days so that hopefully we'll have them on hand to ship out with the orders once they arrive. If not, we'll let you know and make other arrangements.  You can always find all recent updates and photos on the Facebook page.

Added about 85 new images

Just added 85 new images to the Facebook KS page album of production stills.  The factory is packing up and will be prepping for shipment the Boot Hill Loot Gear & Accessory sets, along with the Buck-A-Roos blanks this week.  They are finalizing a couple of paint details before finishing up on the figures and then will be assembling and packaging those items for shipment.  We expect at least 2 to 3 more weeks before the shipment will be ready to board a freighter and head this way. 

Once in transit, shipment can take anywhere from 45 to 60 days, and we expect another 30 on top of that to inventory and start fulfilling all Kickstarter, and then Backerkit orders.  Orders will be combined wherever possible and shipping credits (and in some extreme cases refunds) will be issued at that time.  Coordinating that operation will be difficult, but we are committed to it.

Thank you for the support you have shown, and keep an eye open for a shipping address update in your email to be coming as soon as we know the shipment is headed this way from China.  Look for our Kickstarter 1.5 later this year around mid-late September for the horses, 5 remaining figures from KS 1, 3 new figures, a new KS exclusive figure, two 2 packs, several new Buck-A-Roos & Boot Hill Loot sets, and the Stagecoach again!  Start saving your pennies now. 

New promotional image(s)

A big shout out to the very talented Stephen Hayford - Plastics for his stellar work on a couple of new promotional images for the CFT-DNL lineup. I've used the low-res image of one photo for the page header and we will roll out the hi-res versions this weekend.

These will be available as prints later this year, and depending on how well those move along, we will have more shots done and perhaps a calendar, playing cards, or other other fun stuff. Keep your eyes peeled on the Facebook page.

Here are some of the recent images from the Facebook group that are coming in during the production run for the figures.  These are all random recent shots, and a more detailed explanation is available on Facebook for those who need some words with their pics.  Not much longer now.  We will have an official date ready once these are about to go on the water shortly, and new pre-orders will be opened back up for those who missed out on the KS.

Our factory rep was kind enough to send us some images of early production on many accessories and secondaries from the factory floor in China.  You can see those photos and my comments by following this link:

The factory is back to work, and we expect to see more images of fully painted and assembled figures shortly.  I have samples of 3 in hand from last month, that I will add here when I can get some good representative photos taken ASAP.
