Through the Woods




After three solid weeks of hardcore scraping, sanding and packing, the new stuff is finally ready to go. Orders will begin shipping tomorrow (Thursday) and continue to go out into Saturday. Coming right off of SDCC, we knew the task of getting everything solid was going to be rough, and man were we right. Some unforeseen hiccups in production overseas caused an excessive amount of work to be placed on us for this release. I want to personally thank everyone for once again showing great patience and understanding as our small boat navigates the unpredictable ocean of making toys. This was our largest release of stuff yet, and we remain dedicated to bringing something new with each wave. Special thanks as well for making the Armodoc launch a success. The next round of them will have a larger run (with all new colors) and should stick around for a bit. I really appreciate all of you giving that little vinyl meatball a chance. Well, back to the trenches to get the shipping madness started! -Matt

  2. Awesome! It sucks that you get swamped with orders, but it must be SO satisfying once everythings said and done! Great job with this wave!

  3. Y'know, that room scares me a lil' bit. As though I would step in for a minute, only to leave and learn that a year has gone by. Spooky stuff...

    Anyway, good on ya, guys! Will we ever get a hint of how many of each figure (roughly) were produced, though?

  4. Excellent stuff, Matt! Hopefully this means you get to take at least a small breather. I've been worried about you, man. Working hard is a good thing, but you gotta know when to let yourself step back and take a break. Congrats on getting this wave done and in record time, considering the setbacks. You're living the dream all us toy geeks have, warts and all! Thanks for doing all you do, buddy!

  5. No my thanks go to you guys for making new my favorite toys. I easily play with these all the time & always need more parts as I go through them so fast with all the customs I make. I am looking forward to the next batch of Armodocs alot & will have to save up to order more then 1 this time.

  6. I can't wait to get my stuff! Though I'm having reverse buyer's remorse for not picking up a Nemica Gobon... Oh well. There's always CCIII. Right...?

  10. The room & desk pics are scary.
    I hope that you're planning to take a nice "vacation" after this last wave/ SDCC and chill for a couple of months.

    Can we get closer pics of the desk the Tron cycle is sitting on ?

    Thanks again for all the work & cool figures

  12. hey... congrats on the success, I feel bad for all the excess work thrust upon you!

  13. Thanks for all your hard work Matt and crew!! This looks to be the best wave yet and I don't see anything but progress for these toys to come.
    I am blown away by the creativity that gives these pieces of PVC (and vinyl) such life! I agree you guys should take a break after all the orders go out, but with your plans for CC3, King Crayboth, and the Real x Head collab, I know you won't rest for long. :)
    But hey, I know making your ideas into tangible objects must be as satisfying as when we get them in our hands, so keep living the dream!! Can't wait to see what comes next!!!

  18. Came home from an all day shift to find my order waiting for me. So so glad I snatched up a Nemica Gobon, this dude looks bloody awesome when holding him up to a light. Normally I'd say something like "I can't wait until the next wave!", but you guys really need a vacation from all the hard (and muchly appreciated) work you guys do. Can't be expressed enough, so I'll just end with a lame emoticon. :D

  19. I can't think of anything that
    matches the looks, playability,
    and all the cool colors of the
    Onell toys. The wait is definitely
    worth it.

    Thank you so much for bringing
    another wave of Armodocs in the
    future. I'm looking forward to
    them.
