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

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!
