Cathy & I really thank you all for the oodles of prayer, kind words and well wishing over the last week on our various personal walls. Thank you all very much for your encouragements. It REALLY helps!
You are all VERY kind.
Cathy is doing much better from her cardiac episode that honestly was my fault. Being brought on by the stress of my latest heart surgery Friday. Not to mention its failure to correct anything once again.
Another kind of heart surgery is the latest best guess they have for me this time which will be scheduled soon.
It is good that I am so strong and healthy regardless of the physical discomfort. I just have to man up a bit more is all.
And thank goodness we have maintained a lead of several weeks on our coming due orders for all this!

Thursday I asked my friend Greg Nicotero who is not on any social media whatsoever [so who's behind those pages anyway?] about the Beller/UK copycatter's shark and those odd comments they posted. Greg told me that he was sent a FREE COPY of their shark and as a courtesy return-complimented with a photo of himself and it. That's what he does for all fan-gifts as a courtesy. He simply does not endorse their product as they appear to me to be posting.
We appreciate that Greg is a long time paying customer of our work since 2011. We earned that. And he owns through purchase his appreciation and inclusion of several of our shark products in his main office, and in many of his video and magazine interviews as well.
Why anyone tries to mimic that, or our products really amazes me?

The return of our 25 inch Ultimate Bruce Sharks has met with tremendous approval and a huge increase in order volume. We are VERY pleased with this. Since we are receiving so many repeat questions here they are briefly with matching brief answers:
1.The Ultimate Sharks will begin shipping in the Fall just as we have advertised, in order of order # and paid in full status. A more specific date to be listed when we know for sure.
2. The 25 inch Ultimate Revenge Bruce and the 1/6 ScarFace Brucette Bust will be released in the Fall as well.
3. We still have plans of also releasing the FULL SCALE Great White Shark Headmount in FULL ATTACK pose, soon. When we know for sure we'll post it. It is STUNNING!☺
4. Yes, everything we make can be customized as far as paint and gore. There are some limitations, but simply please communicate with us what you want, even to matching photos and screengrabs and I am sure we can accommodate almost everyone.
5. Yes, the 1/6 Bruce Busts will be a complete set with one shark from each film.
6. No we cannot release a full schedule of all our planned products as that would open us up to being ripped off even more than we already have been.
7. Yes, we are still considering making a Bruce shark available for a kit-build but are still fearful of being recast and run out of business by unscrupulous types that do wrong and then are so shocked when we defend ourselves from being abused by them. Some people, right?
So no kits for the foreseeable future. Just another freedom squelched by bad people I guess.
Other than that this UPDATE got LOT's longer than it is FUN to read so we’ll be merciful and end it right here. Thank you again my friends for your kindness[es], encouragements and friendships!
