Those awaiting the shipping for the April/May 1/6 Bruce Busts will be happy to know ALL are on the bench[es] and being built in order of order dates and paid-in-full status. Basically everything is right on schedule as usual. That's over 200-feet of work-tables crammed with sharks and parts!
On behalf of my family I thank the Jaws and shark fan communities for their OVERWHELMING support in the last 4 weeks. We have seen people BRAGGING over our quality and workmanship all over social media! Thank you for circulating good words about us. Our family depends on happy customers spreading a good report.
Also it was no secret I got pretty sick there for about 3 weeks. It was a domino effect we believe that I caused myself for working too hard all the time. Up to 14 hours a day with no days off in recent memory. Having been perfectly healthy for over 2 ½ years I was really caught off guard to get sick at all. But I am almost back to where I was. And I am back in the shop working 8 to 9 hours a day. As it should be.
We decided to not release any photos this week of our All New 2015 1/12 scale, 25-inch long Ultimate Bruce and Ultimate Scarface Brucette Collector's Set Sharks. We were going to yesterday but in light of recent events we want to hold back.
We decided to let the amateur-crook that has so poorly copied our products, right down to the wood style display-bases that we created ourselves and have been providing all decade, to run his course like the human Flu-Virus that he is.
For those that missed this oddness, a copy-catter from the UK sent Jim Beller the 'Jaws Collector' a free shark several weeks back and they both seemed to spend every waking moment promoting the daylights out of it. There's no accounting for taste or ethics I guess.
I believe that they still maintain what Jim posted which I read as - since I don't own sharks and never patented my products/[stands] that his artist is free to express himself creatively on his wall; or some such double-talk. Because copy-catting is so original, and so ethical right? Some people....
So, the last BIG THANK YOU of today goes out to all our customers and friends that have encouraged us and stood up for us all over the place [ 188 so far ]. And from the forwards being sent to us for also proclaiming in all four corners of the Nurn [Facebook] that our sharks & service are truly superior!
THANK YOU ALL for such Encouragement!
This is why we try so hard to do the right things by you all.
My family and I are truly Blessed to know you. Thank you for being such good and solid friends and customers.
