    That one made me laugh. I've received a bunch more names in PMs too, so I'm going to have to comb through everything.

    Pre-order is live!

    Thanks for ordering. Glad you're excited.
    The pre-order has been going really well. I am happy and relieved that there has been such a positive initial reaction. It can be a nerve wracking experience taking the vinyl plunge. My sincere gratitude goes out to everyone who has ordered one so far. I really love this little dude and I hope all of you will as well.

    Re: Splurrt Vinyl (Pre-order Details)

    Had another think about names and going off the past names Joe has given his other figures (Diggler,Hiya) I was thinking something like

    Fugsley or Fugles (comes from the shortened version of F&%(# Ugly, with a touch of cuteness)

    On another note woohoo i got the green!!

    Re: Splurrt Vinyl (Pre-order Details)

    My thanks to all you guys who ordered. The pre-order was very successful and I couldn't be happier with the premiere. There are so many cool toys these days, I'm really honored that the people who ordered, felt this guy was worth spending their money on.

    I'll be updating the site as I get production news, I'm hoping it moves along quickly.

    I last talked with my Japanese producer on Wednesday. He said the wax casting was about done. And that things have been going smoothly.
    Thanks for the patience guys. I'm pretty anxious. The wax is the most expensive and timely part from my understanding. So I hope things move quickly after.

    Just got word the wax casting is finished up and going to the factory today!
    The wax is tough to photograph but here are some previews.
    Next- putting in the joints.

    Thanks guys.

    I've got some stuff in the running, but haven't narrowed it down yet, been busy working on resin stuff so haven't given much though. I'll have a decision before they ship out.

    Test pulls will be done by mid week. :twisted: Needless to say it's going to be a very anxious week for me.

    And the pre-order vinyls will be finished up by mid-July latest, I've been told - I'm hoping earlier but can't guarantee...
    Thanks for hanging in there everyone, just chalk it up to my inexperience, I didn't think about the SDCC slam at the factory causing a delay. I hope you find the little boogers worth the wait.
