JOINING THE DIGITAL
PRINT YOUR COLLECTION !
Product Updates, 3d Printing, Prototypes....
Welcome to mid March - already....
Time flies when you're having fun. Or incredibly busy.
Thankfully, its both !
Here's our updates for this month.
The McMahon Statues have nearly all sold out over on our webshop and manufacturing is underway.
There was a scheduling delay with the factory due to Chinese New Year which will impact on the final arrival date- we are waiting on how this delay may effect the timeline we were originally given.
We will always keep you informed of any further news as soon as it comes in, but in the meantime here's a few shots of the production mould making for the statue. We love this stage....
The first batch of our Judge's helmet sold out within a matter of hours, which beat all our expectations!
Moulds have been made and we are starting to produce stock this week....
The release of the Dredd Lawgiver 3d print files has proven a huge interest in the field of 3d Printing.

We see 3d Printing not as competition but a direct way to engage new customers who want a different approach to building their collections.
We understand not everyone has a 3d printer, or access to one, but we are pretty sure in the next few years this will start to change very quickly. We'd like to embrace this change rather than pretend it won't effect us !
We are trial running this area to see how we can best compliment our ranges, so bare with us as we set this all up.
We already have a HUGE range of never-seen-before 3d files avaialble, as nearly all of our work was started digitally in some way, so who knows what we will release next for you to print!
Although there are plenty of sites offering print files, we think we are the first Prop Replica Company to offer this opportunity - please help support us as we spearhead this project.
We've got a few ideas we are researching which could be of great interest to some of you already involved in this area....
In order to accommodate our Digital Collection we have just completed some updates on our website-
- We've added a Social Media Stream to allow you to keep up to date. What better way to procrastinate on that deadline !! Avoid any blocking of Facebook or Twitter on those work computers - enjoy that extra 20 mins on your break HERE
- We are working to integrate our webshop and website to make browsing and purchasing much smoother
Just a reminder - Facebook are always changing their 'Reach' policy, so remember to always see our Feeds on your home page by selecting the drop down menu from the "Like" button on our cover photo, and make sure the "Get Notifications" option is ticked.
We've been working on the Mars Attacks Raygun recently, perfecting our production process.
We're integrating custom SLS printed parts for some of the details on each casting, as this process will make a stronger final product than if it was all cast in the same material.
The main choice we're facing at the moment is seeing if its worth trying to get the black finish within the cast itself - which would then need a flawless roto-cast - or by post-painting . Gloss black is very unforgiving !
Check out a 360 turntable of the Raygun over on our YOUTUBE CHANNEL
( Yes- this raygun started as a digital sculpt too !)
Next month we should be allowed to share at least three
new products we are working on !
Thats pretty much it for now. Again, thanks for the support and remember-
If you need us we are only an email away !
