PRODUCTION AND SHIPPING UPDATES

Hi all. Hope you are well and safe and had a great weekend. I wanted to update everyone on the various projects and current situation of Kinetiquettes.
I have bad news… due to lockdowns happening again in parts of China, things have become frustratingly slow and hence production and shipping has been hindered. We started shipping Rathalos to some collectors in China in December however due to Chinese New year in February, there was a standstill in everything. But then after the holidays, lockdowns started to happen which is slowing everything down again. We are now waiting for things to return to normal over there before we can continue shipping.
Geese and War Heroes were also affected by all this. As mentioned earlier in the year, last couple of years have been tough for us but we are starting to get into the stride of having faster turnaround times for each of our releases. Having said that, we are definitely looking to release them ASAP as they are our top priority for this year. Estimated release for them currently is start shipping by Q3 of this year.
We have not forgotten about our replacements for Dizzy. They are in process but again, due to delays, this is happening very slowly as well. But rest assured, we will ensure every single person receives their replacement in good condition.
Finally, the good news is that Chunli is going well according to our more efficient production timeline. We are strictly checking every step of the process to make sure she’s the best version of our 1/4 female Fighters line.
Furthermore, big changes are happening internally in terms of projects and partnerships, which the team is very excited about moving forward. We have planned some really cool statue lines and announcements this year that will pave the way for us moving forward as Kinetiquettes looks to be the go-to studio for video game characters designed by some of the very best artists in the industry. Speaking of artists, we have a super exciting announcement regarding that in the coming weeks. Not to mention our next Artist Series launch is almost upon us and our first epic anime pre-order launch is happening next month…finally.
I know…we have been slow in releasing some projects. But we are doing our best for all new projects to have a faster timeline without compromising quality. Despite the tough times, we are doing our best for you and also for ourselves. Moving forward a lot of things will change for the better. No more slow productions, no more taking forever to release pre-orders. As with all ventures, mistakes and mishaps can happen but we will always be upfront and honest with you about what and why they are happening.
I’ll leave you guys with some production samples of Chunli going thru some strict QC. This picture was posted earlier today in our exclusive facebook groups called “Kinetiquettes Kollectors”. In case you wish to receive this kind of updates and esxlcusives deals upfront we strongly recommend that you join us there. You can join the group HERE.
We hope to bring more news soon. Stay tuned and thank you for your time.Adeeb Mynul

Artgerm’s Chun-Li pre-order is now live!

It is with great thrill and excitement that Kinetiquettes presents its new collaboration with the legendary artist Stanley Artgerm Lau!

Zinogre is Shipping Now!

Yes! What a great way to end this year!

The spoils of the Thunder Wolf Wyvern hunt are arriving at the hunters bases all over the world!
All kollectors who managed to snag a Zinogre piece can finally celebrate in joy as all orders started to ship!

But, what exactly does that means you ask? It means all orders are being shipped in batches to our warehouses worldwide. Like always, after our teams receive the statues we’ll sort out all orders in every region and organize our final delivery to your shipping address. When this final delivery phase begins we’ll be providing the tracking info for all owners so they can keep track of their orders.

Please keep in mind that the covid situation have not cooled off by now and we’re struggling with slow shipping services and restrictions in many countries. This will not stop us from shipping the statues but it will surely make the process slower.

Fellow hunters, we thank you for your patience and we also take this opportunity to wish a happy new year for the kollectors community! May 2021 bring better days for everyone!

Kinetiquettes – artists series

Collecting is about appreciating works of art created by the artist. We fall in love with characters that we have never known before just by the sheer artistry involved in creating them. Hence we have come together with some of the best in the industry to create our first wave of unique characters in our all new ARTISTS SERIES. Designed in collaboration with the Kinetiquettes team, they each bring their original ideas, strengths and experience to create some of the most unique pieces of art in the market. Who’s next?

Does size matter in the statues hobby?

We have a new video on our youtube channel! In this episode of the “Victor Asks” series we discuss about how the statue size factors in developing a product. Its an interesting topic with some specific considerations regarding concept, engineering and the collectors’s taste and what they expect in general. Check it out!

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.

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!
