So I had originally planned to have these two out in October. Let me tell you a story.
It’s a story about how the best laid plans can go all wrong. And oh how wrong they went.
The short story is that we had a lot of trouble getting these guys through production. The normal turn around time is one month, however, there were mold problems, a head melted on the way to the casting studio, and all kinds of other shenanigans that I hope never happen again. Meanwhile back stateside, the lid to my pressure pot broke(the handle actually) and had to go in for repairs. :/ And some internet harassment, recasting emergencies, and classes I’m taking for my day job(that I had committed to before all this happened).
If I knew it was going to take this long, I’d have scheduled all this very differently!
As is, I’m going to still HOPE to have these two ready for pre-order by Christmas.
The next mini-machina release, however, is going to be pushed back to February. Besides the reasoning that I can’t handle doing two orders at once, I am still working on a new head! I have two I’ve done and are in non-pressurized molds now to do test casts and test face-ups. I’ve also got the cat ears, which will replace the helmet, curing on my desk right now!
So that’s where things stand now! The next Mini will be either pink or gray and she’ll run the same $325 as the previous run.
I’ll update here when I get the samples of the boys in! I am so sorry for how long this has taken and I hope there’s still interest in them when they come out!
