Production Updates

Hello folks! In this early November we are happy to inform that we have some major production updates to share with you. We are sure that Capcom and Street Fighter fans are up for a treat!

War Heroes… yes, those two have taken their time. We have informed in a few occasions in the past that this project got pushed back due to some factory changes that impact in its schedule but the project is back on track and production has evolved a lot. We take this chance to apologize for the delay and to assure that its completion is closer than it has ever been.

And while we are on the Street Fighter page, Chun Li has finished her quality rounds check and she is almost ready to go! We are super satisfied with the results achieved and we cannot wait to start sending her out!

Last but not least, our last batch of Rathalos pieces is almost done and shipping should be happening right after. Our first batch has already been sent to our warehouses. Since transport is done by ship this can take a few months but rest assured hunters, The King of the Skies is on its way. Here are some “army” pics for your enjoyment:

To wrap this up, we really value everyone’s patience. We know the waiting game is hard and sometimes takes its toll on us kollectors but we must say that those last couple of years were extremely challenging regarding production and factory availability. And although things certainly haven’t come back to normal yet, we are definitely walking torward better days. Expect Geese Howard news soon. Thanks!!

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! Featuring one of the most beloved characters from Capcom’s prestigious franchise and the first female fighter ever to be featured in a fighting game, Chun Li is recognized by many generations of video game enthusiasts.
 
Being introduced in the Street Fighter II game, she has been present in all the other eras and medias related to it, becoming a true flag character from CAPCOM. To honor her story throughout the series, this Chun Li piece features elements from different games which fans will surely recognize.
 
“The strongest woman in the world” 1/4 diorama captures the elegance and beauty during one of her lighting speed kicks. The sculpt is both static and dynamic, with a strong sense of movement with precision while she maintain balance amidst her strike. Its effects can easily be seen in her surroundings with tables, pottery and nearby animals all caught up in her attack!
