Candy store selection? Why choose if you get it all?!?!

Quick update here before I head off to work after a long night of designing some nice future kits as well as packing, packing and more packing for today and tomorrows shipping after work each day.

The main update is the sold out TS7-B robot. It does not look like it will be making a come back unless it gets some serious design changes by the designer. Needless to say it was brought to my attention the use of certain bits, that while I didn't notice, others were upset over. As such, when it sold out, and quickly I might add, I did not order anymore.

The set itself was going to have choice of helmet and shoulder pads. Because of the short time frame of sale, everyone who ordered one, gets all the options included. I'm also was able to toss in a small extra into some of the random orders.

There will be more updates later tonight on future projects, new designers and even more!

Branching out, shipping orders and bringing new Designers onto the Team!!

I need to make this short as I'm on the train home from work.

TSS has been working hard to get caught up on all orders that were set back due to super high demand, a run out of resin due to it with a10 day wait between getting more and the death of my mother right after.

*beep beep* News Update *beep beep*


I have been going over all the orders that have been received and due to a system crash (i.e my own stupid mistake) I lost the list of names to match with orders, which also shows me whats shipped and not shipped yet. I need anyone that has orders a set and has not received it yet, please email me direct at: ThreeStageStudios at gmail dot com. I need your full name, address the order is going to and the exact contents of the orders.

I plan to have the system restored but before I start that process, I just wanted to get the readers here, if any that are still waiting to contact me so I can get the orders shipped first thing Tuesday. Today is Memorial day, so no mailings.

On a good note, the 8 inch tall, multi part robot kit is nearing final production as well as a number of other items. Be prepared to surprised!

Another update! Completed casting 35 sets last night!

As some of you may be aware my mother passed away a little over a week ago. During that time i hardly slept, spent what little free time I had taking care of the memorial arrangements and also still having to go to my regular day job. I took the time on mothers day and yesterday to get back to casting and get caught up on all current orders as it seemed better then mopping around.

They say pictures are worth a thousand words, so here goes.

Thats right, 35 complete 5 man true scale sets. I will spend the next hour or so cleaning them up, removing the resin plugs and other parts associated with the casting process.

After cleaning, they are always shipped like this:

Now to the annoying news. The system still is not updating shipped orders properly. For now, until I can get it sorted out, you need to email me directly, via either the email address listed to the right of this post, or use the contact me button on the webstore. I simply have had to many orders to update each person individually right now.

If you need an update, please do email me and I will get back to you, usually within the hour.

I also have the final sets from this design ready to be pulled. In total there are 9 full sets remaining and a hand full of random parts for conversions if people choose. The molds themselves are at the end. While they can still make a few more casts, the quality wouldn't be to the standard I would want to sell to the public. If demand is high enough I will remake the molds one final time, but as I said, only if the demand warrants it.

More shipping and Resin updates!

 (for some odd reason, I love this picture)

I think I am getting the glitches worked out in the system so that when your order is shipped, its an automatic email instead of the current method that seems to work randomly at best. In the mean time, if anyone has not gotten your order, or a notification that it was shipped, feel free to email me for an update.

Please be aware that current time from order place until order shipped is 7 days on average and sometimes as many as 10. If you placed an order before that time frame has passed, it most likely means your order has not be cast yet.

Onto resin updates and the resuming of casting. The order was to arrive yesterday but didn't Its new scheduled delivery is for tomorrow. All orders placed in the last 12 or so days will be fully cast by the end of the week.

The TS7-A "Robot" will be complete and ready for casting by next friday. I am going to wait until then to do a mass release of the pictures of it (and there will be many) as I will be limiting the entire release of them to 25 kits. That's right, only 25, 8 inch tall "Robots" that will work very well as a certain hard to find kit(s).

The true scale kits are nearing the last few. I know it has been said before, but to make a long story short, there are 2 full kits left and a hand full of torso/leg combo kits left. I do not plan to remake the molds unless demand was high enough. Frankly, they are tough on molds as they are not as "plain" as they appear in some pictures.

More updates soon.

40k True Scale - Tired of wondering how big they are?

This all started over several forums where people keep claiming marines are 7 feet tall and how terminator armor is only slightly bigger.

It all boils down to, when people use plastic terminators to convert into true scale power armor marines, they then need to upscale the terminators. Ive been told by a few mine are to big. Well, here is more then enough GW picture evidence to prove otherwise.

Most Recent Art showing scale.(not even 3 years old at most)

Then this, from about 5 years ago.

And finally the picture (from the early 90's when GW models were tiny) that people fail to see, that was drawn when marines were tiny. 15 years of size expansion shows a lot. Look at the most recent art above. That power armor marine is at least 8-9 feet. And he isnt even in heavy armor.

Read the new fluff people, and not just BL stuff.

Also down to the last kits for them. So if you want them, act now.  

If by chance there are enough requests worth making another mold for a few more sets, email me direct. If we get enough people together, ill go ahead and do it. I however would need at least a handful of people to make it worth considering.

Shipping Updates and Resin Orders

The demand has actually out weighed over 2 gallons of resin. I have ordered more and it should be arriving this week. All remaining orders will need this batch of resin as the jugs are literally empty. I simply did not expect such a high demand in such a short time frame.

There is a plus side.

All orders that are delayed until the weekend when the resin arrives, will receive a free sample from the next, and as of yet, un-announced kit. (more news on that in a future post)

If anyone has any direct questions regarding their order, future orders or just want to shoot the breeze, I can always be reached via email, located to the right of this post (or the top right of the website once this post moves down)
