We are writing to update all outstanding orders for our 1/6 Bruce shark Bust with an incredible offer! As you know the sales have been so incredible on the 1/6 Bruce Busts that we responded to the great amount of pressure early last month to not yet close the sales edition of the busts as planned.
Also, since then Cathy consolidated for me all of the customer feedback and I have been working on a highly updated Bruce Bust to pick up where the initial Bruce Bust leaves off.
The reason for this is that we very much passed our goals for the Bruce Bust early last month-- prompting us to close the run -- YET the sales have been increasing at an astounding rate!
So, what we have done is to remaster the bust based on the massive amount of customer-feedback then release the updated bust allowing us to retire the first edition. This limits the first run and also allows more people to get in on the action-bust as well.
Now the updated version is the same basic shark proper at first glance. It is the same pose and same basic silhouette. However what I have done is greatly increase the detail resolution adding many new screen accurate features. MANY many..I have also improved the tongue and mouth detail mesh.
In addition, many customers expressed they had no previous knowledge that the location used Bruce Shark skin’s often twisted on their frames and bloated from water damage at various stages of shooting causing many features to not mirror correctly from one side to the other.
The real Bruce sharks often had the eyes, nostrils and mouth corners ever so slightly misaligned with their opposite side due to this. Our first edition Bruce of course mirrored this extreme accuracy. However; as a wise friend told me once, if you have to explain a feature then the intent was not communicated as best it could in the model.
So for the updated version I have remodeled the head to have the left to right balance-of-features indicative of a brand new Bruce Shark skin yet to suffer those water damages and repairs.
Thus the ‘slight misaligned features have been corrected to a newer shark whose left features more properly mirror their right side. A newer Bruce skin as opposed to one at the end of a rough day's shoot. Both still 100% historical Bruce, and now both different enough and limited in numbers enough to increase in value more rapidly over time for their collector's☺.
Also I have greatly increased the resolution of detail and increased the depth of many of the wounds and skin repairs while also spending an entire day just re-modeling in the scale-grit [under magnification] of the actual sand-grit used in the painting of the original Bruce Shark skins over 40 years ago! Never before has there been a 1/6 scale Bruce shark Bust with this much detail per square inch, even greater than the mechanical shark that we built and operated for SyFy’s film GhostShark back in 2012!
So, with all this information in hand I have been writing current paid in full customers presenting the option to upgrade to this newer and more detailed Bruce shark Bust for FREE. No additional charge or shipping or anything of the sort. ☺ I just thought to myself that if I were awaiting my Bruce Shark Bust then I would want the newest and most detailed one available.
Of course whatever customization's previously chosen also apply to the newer shark orders.
* This of course in no way hinders or detracts from the 1/6 Scale All New Closed-Mouth-Pose Bruce Shark Bust about to release or any of the other sequel shark busts that we are releasing quite soon.
We just wanted to share our most unique solution to the problem of limiting run numbers while also providing for an ever greater collector audience. CHEER'S, and have an Incredible day!☺
