Our posted goal of also releasing the final Sequel Shark in the 25 Inch Ultimate line, The Revenge Bruce is still set before the end of the year, time permitting.
Also we may be limiting the number of sharks that we sell each month. We are working through the Pro's and Con's now as to should we only advertise selling a limited number of sharks per quarter or not. This way we could advertise that we are selling Edition numbers 'X through X' of the 'X' shark for this quarter and first come first serve...
We are not quite sure which is the wisest way to proceed as yet. The problem that we are trying to solve is that every single time without fail that I fill all Paid in Full orders and get caught up, another large amount gets paid off super-early and instead of being able to finish prototypes and release other sharks all I ever get to do is fill orders.
Not a bad problem to have for sure. And I am grateful for the orders and the sooner I can get friends their sharks the better. But I have so many things that could be added to our Online Catalog right now if I just had the time to add them.
I have a ½ Scale Bruce Shark Dorsal that is INCREDIBLE, and an all NEW Life-Sized Great White Shark Head in a Full Attack pose that includes the gills that is one of the best sculpts I have ever made, and it is AWESOME.... So Friggen Awesome that it doesn't even need a laser-beam strapped on...baby!
So, as it stands we are also trying to get so far ahead of things as to have sharks fully completed before people Pay in Full with the goal of which being that we can publish our wait times for shipping a shark down to 3 weeks maximum.
Also in other news, this month is the month to pay your shark off in full if you seriously want to beat the Christmas frenzy and get your shark shipped for sure well before the New Year.
Every year we have people beg to be included in getting their shark shipped early, well in time before Christmas; but all the way up to just one week before Christmas! No, I cannot make from scratch 22 of the 3 foot long sharks and get them shipped in time for Christmas just a few weeks before Christmas...
So if you want it before the big day then PLEASE do us all a huge favor and start working with us clearly to get your shark paid in full including its shipping and handling for us to have plenty of time to build it along with dozens of other last minute rush sharks.
I think that is all the news so far with the exception of releasing that one of our goals is to have the first 10 Bruce 3D Sharks already made before we go live with their Pre-Order in 2 weeks. That is a goal. Some have taken our goals as posted promises, but a goal is something that we want for our customers and are working very hard towards making happen. We don't always meet a goal but we like people to know what we are trying to do for them.
Yes, as with all our sharks they will be numbered in order of paid in Full status and yes they will ship with our Family Signed Certificates of Authenticity and a free stand of which we are working to decide on.
Did I mention that this Bruce 3D shark is posed in an action-pose very much like you might see it on film?
And did I mention that just like the screen used shark that the fins are all modeled on and blended to the body, making this shark we hope more affordable?
And did I mention that yes of course we would love to customize your paint, details and gore level for your shark so please communicate clearly with us what you have in mind so we can work towards your dream shark!
And did I mention that this Bruce 3D shark is modeled more after the full sized shark used in the final scenes rather than the many other miniature, or sea World Display, or cable-controlled, or animation or partial sharks that looked nothing like each other?
* For more details on some of these items look back a few posts for a taste of what we will be releasing in just a few short weeks!
