Well here we are just 2 weeks after releasing our second new shark this year, can you believe it?
And that is between 29 private commissions and FX for one Indy film to boot!
We have been getting a TON of emails asking us about putting out other sharks. Hey, thank you before I continue on. Thank you for seeing that we love what we do and apparently have something absolutely awesome going here, so thank you for asking.
The top five sharks asked for are the Revenge Bruce in both Ultimate Collector's set scale as well as 3 foot, the Bruce 3D in 3 foot, the Brucette 2 in 3 foot and 1/6 Bust, as well as 1/6 busts for the rest of the sequel sharks.
The letters all ask something like, 'Will you market X-Shark?"
The answer is that we have prototypes for a lot more than just these posted here, believe me.
But who knows what the future holds? Right now we are waiting to see if we are picked up for a Major shark film Q1 to Q2 of 2015.
If this happens then we won't be making any sharks privately for anyone not currently on our books save for this major motion picture for all of 2015 at least. We can only do so much honestly.
I ask my friends to walk a minute in my shoes. Would you continue to work 10 to 14 hours each day for 7 days a week just as we have since May of 2010 if you did not have to do it?
A major motion picture released in theaters would mean more than just hitting the bigtime for us. We could slow down and finally do some things for ourselves for once. Pretty dang day-dreamy-tempting ain't it? Who wouldn't want to ease up if they could?
So my advice is honest, if you see a few sharks that we currently offer that you want then act now before it is too late. No bull. My gosh, we even offer Interest-Free payment plans for Pete's sake, everything shy of some ministry to be a little funny about how easy we make things. Write us and just see what we can do with you if you will stick to some simple payment plan.
And after talking to a great many happy customers I have found that ALL found that they had more than enough expendable cash sitting around that they were throwing away weekly at eating out every day and at sports every week. No Bull, many have told me that they found the cash for their shark when they realized that limited runs really meant 'limited runs'.That's not too good an idea for us to post it up either, we only eat out maybe once every 2 or 3 months ourselves! Those that want the real thing enough end up with one on their shelves. By the hundreds!
And I remind again that we are already working to decide which sharks we are discontinuing at the end of this year in a few months.
And as you know once we discontinue something we have to honor that. We can only do so much like anyone else. Every time we discontinue a shark we get waves of pleading emails for months begging us to release to them just one more because they wished that they would have acted when they could.
Look, I have more work than I can accomplish everyday so this is no attempt at pressuring anyone into buying any shark. No bull. What this is, is our kind attempt to remind that we don't gimmick and we don't bluff. No subliminal messages or gags here either.
This is what we are doing and this is what we may have come to pass in 2015. Hey, I could even drop dead again like in Oct of 2009 for all anyone knows, right? Nobody knows what the future holds, but we are sharing what we are looking forward to next year.
If this motion picture survives Hollywood's funding roller-coaster then we will be deactivating our
"Buy Now" buttons on our sales site. If the film is postponed than maybe we will release another shark if we have time between commissions. Which shark I cannot truthfully tell you yet. We just want everyone we call friend or customer to be in the loop is all. And this is as in-the-loop as we can be for everyone.
Thank you all for your care concerns and for writing us. Of course we'll share more as we figure things out and as things come to pass.
For now the All New Ultimate Bruce 3D is a HUGE success and we are still working daily to fill orders WAaaayyy ahead of target dates.
Have a good day friends!
