Monster Hunter Updates

Zinogre Production Pics!

Welcome everyone to another Kinetiquettes newsletter. This time we have special news and info for our Monter Hunter fans as Zinogre’s production is going full speed ahead!

As you already know, the Thunder Wolf Wyvern is probably Kinetiquettes’ most ambitious and challenging project, with more than one hundred pieces that had to be individually sculpted and painted. Nevertheless, the team managed to keep a steady pace with its production while maintaining the concern with quality, and Zinogre’s shipping is expected to happen later this year, on Q4 2020.

If you cannot wait anymore for updates on your beloved monster, we strongly encourage you to join our secret facebook group called “Kinetiquettes Kollectors“. We recently shared some production pictures of Zinogre there and we are now sharing here with you. Can you spot your Zinogre there?

And while we are talking about Zinogre’s production we recently had one of our production samples unboxed by our friends from Kamui Cosplay! Click on the link below to watch their unboxing video and get a glimpse of what you’ll be receiving!

Zinogre’s unboxing video

Wait, there is more!

While we were checking our Zinogre on the wild we also caught an eye on a different Palico there.. not only he is in a different pose but… that armor… red, with black spikes? What could that be? 😉

Kinetiquettes x Artgerm Collaboration update!

So… we heard you like Capcom and SNK characters?

Hey there! Today is an exciting day as we have more details to share about our collaboration with the legendary artist Stanley “Artgerm” Lau!

We are very happy to announce that Stanley will be working with us not only with the “King of Fighters” and “Street Fighter” videogame franchises, but we’ll also be doing characters from the “Darkstalkers” videogames! He will not only be providing the artistic concept for all the produced pieces but he’ll also follow every step of the production to make sure every piece match his vision standards!

As kollectors and players ourselves we are excited to work with him to bring characters like Morrigan, Hsien-Ko, Felicia, Lilith and others into 1/4 scale statue form. So keep following us for more news as they are sure to be shared in the near future!

Here are the words from Kinetiquettes’ creative director and co-founder Adeeb for the announcement:

Trust me when I say that I am as excited as you all about what we have in the works. I promise we will do our best to keep delivering and pushing ourselves as we are always humbled by your support and feedback. Thanks Stanley for this opportunity and taking us to new heights. We are in it for the long haul!

Please join us in our social media channel and let us know which characters are you looking for!

Check the reveal below. We also have a quick tease of the first character here…Can you guess who it is? 🙂

 

 

Very Low RESTOCK on Terry and Mai statues!

Hi there! We’d like to inform that a new opportunity has presented to order these already SOLD OUT pieces. We have oppened a LAST CHANCE ordering window for two of our most sought after statues we ever released. Our two SNK’s flagship characters are available for order … yes, we’re talking about Terry Bogard and Mai Shiranui! The statues have begun shipping and the orders are slowly and surely reaching collectors worldwide.

Unfortunately, one of our retailer surrendered their stock and we are making it available for kollectors who looked for them after the Pre Orders were closed. This will be a “first come first served” based event with less than 20 PIECES available to order for both.

To make it even better, since this will be a Kinetiquettes website event, all orders will come with the exclusive art print for each statue! Head to the link below to guarantee your piece before they are gone forever:

Victor asks – Episode 002 – The most challenging aspect of statue production!

Hey guys! Did you hear about our series of weekly casual videos where we discuss about the statues industry and the business related to it? Well, in case you didn’t know, our community manager Victor and our creative director Adeeb are gathering once a week (sort of) for a very informal and casual talk about producing official licensed products.

We think its important to create a space where people can talk about the many aspects that surrounds this industry. Please, join us and let us know if there’s anything you would like to know on the next episodes. The link for the episode 002 is right below. Here we tell what we think its the most challenging aspect of statue production!

Cheers!

Kinetiquettes new series of weekly videos – “Victor asks”

Yep, you read that right. Victor, our community manager, will be having a chat with Adeed Md, Kinetiquette’s Creative Director and co-founder, about the collectibles industry in general. The idea is to have a quick chat, every week, to talk about various aspects of the statue and figures business. The first video (which acted as a pilot project) is on. Take a look at the link below! Any feedback is appreciated here!

Zinogre Preview and Full gallery available!

2019 marks the 15th anniversary for the Monster Hunter franchise. The last entry for the game series became Capcom’s best selling videogame in the company’s history. Facing such a tremendously beloved legacy, how do you make it justice?

We are excited to be finally presenting our first Monster Hunter set of collectibles. Zinogre, the Thunder Wolf Wyvern, is one of the fiercest creatures of this fantastic universe and hunting him has always put even the most powerful Hunters on edge. To bring all the details necessary to recreate a batlle against this legendary creature, the sculpture was divided on more than one hundred tiny parts, each individually sculpted and painted. As for the sets, the female Hunter is equipped with a Zinogre Switchaxe while the male Hunter engaged the hunt using a Zinogre Sword & Shield. To tip the scales even better, both are also wearing a set of Zinogre armor.

Since this is one of our largest projects, we created a number of exclusives for the orders placed in our website. The Hunter and the Palico figures will accompany a special metal PIN and the Zinogre will bring a special Art Print to be displayed with the diorama. But if you purchase the complete bundle featuring all the four components, along with all the mentioned exclusives, the Palico figure will also have its own weapon!

To check the full gallery, please, head to our facebook page clicking HERE. Pre-orders will open this Friday, December 6th 11 PM Singapore time. This is a made to order Project, meaning that on December 22nd Pre Orders will close for good. Happy hunting!
