Good News: The reason for the bad news is that we are expanding! It's mostly internal, but we have outgrown our current setup. In order to better serve our customers, we need to really overhaul our storage and organization, and that just takes time. But the end result will be more PC pieces, more complete races, and hopefully the beginnings of our terrain offerings as well!
More Good News: we have OVER 500 new items that are already inventoried and photographed. I just need to get them added to the site after the internal reorganization is done.
So even if it looks like the site site is a bit stagnant... NOPE. And pretty soon we'll be rolling right along again. Hang in there AB fans!
OK, so the giants are still being worked on. I actually have 10 different fire giants and 6 frost giants, but they are only 95% done - they need finishing touches and I am creating special clothing for them to make them look better. So I'm super disappointed that they aren't done yet, but I'm also super excited because I have the parts and pieces for all of them and they are looking good.
Also I have 3 new creations that are done and are just waiting on photography: Giant Seahorses, Giant Venus Flytraps, and Yellow Musk Creepers with Yellow Musk Zombies. So that's a good thing.
And of course I have the ever-present monster pile to complete: giant bats, starspawn, all new myconids, alternate races, carts and carriages and wagons (oh my), Zombie Unicorns, Quicklings, Sprites, Flying Snakes, Pixies (so tiny!), Shambling Mounds... etc.
And coming much sooner than expected, we will have amazing new cloaks with hoods, and possibly some coats as well.
THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN A DAY!
In June we added 150+ new torso, legs, and heads, so we're headed back to monster territory now.
We have officially started the creation process for giants, and by the end of July we expect to have Fire, Storm, Frost, Cloud, and Stone giants, in both 5e and Pathfinder sizes, including the variations in Volo's Guide to Monsters.
So Jul 4th - 18th should be pretty quiet in terms of new releases (although we have some), and then we'll reveal them all at once. :)
I am finally working on the body pile. In the next few days I will be adding at least 50 new torsos, 30 new legs, and 50 new heads. There will be a few monsters thrown into the mix as well, as always.
And of course I have the ever-growing monster pile to complete: giant bats, yellow musk creepers and zombies, starspawn, all new myconids, alternate races, carts and carriages and wagons (oh my), Zombie Unicorns!, Quicklings, Sprites, Flying Snakes, Pixies (so tiny!), Shambling Mounds, Giant Venus Flytraps, more weapons and armor (really cool stuff!), and maybe, just maybe, we'll get to the pile of giants that we've been designing since around September... although the requests for a bulette are leading me astray.
If there is anything you are looking for, please make a request! We are always happy to take a pause from our piles, and get sidetracked for a while. :)
So last week we dedicated a very large portion of time to our new custom capes. This week we are dedicating most of our time to restocking items that we have run out of, and additionally we are making some minor design updates to our figures and custom creations in order to keep costs down or to make them more structurally stable.
And as always I have a huge list of things that we just need to get photographed and added to the site - there's always something new coming. I smell the spores of a yellow musk creeper....
OK, so I haven't exactly been cranking out the new monster designs lately, although I managed to get 3-4 crossed off of the list. Also, we have restocked some Brick Warriors pieces, but are still not completely there yet. And we almost doubled the number of heads avilable on the site, so that's no small feat either. But the real reason for our apparent inactivity is our 1 major update - custom capes!
We have been secretly working very hard to produce a full line of custom capes for your minifigures. We offer colors and textures that are simply not available anywhere else, to bring your minifigs to life in a way that simply isn't possible with traditional LEGO capes. We have already produces 24 different cape materials, and in the future we even hope to start producing our own designs.
OK, now back to that list of monsters that I've been promising for the past 2 months...
To anyone who is shopping but has not purchased yet, you may have noticed that most of our Brick Warriors items have suddenly disappeared. We are currently having trouble receiving pieces from Brick Warriors, and we have had no choice but to remove a large portion of our pieces from the site until the issue has been resolved.
We are wholly sorry and we will return the pieces to the site when we can. Some items from Brick Warriors are still on the site and can be purchased as we still have them in stock, but when they are gone we will need to remove those as well unless something changes for us in the near future.
OK, so I forgot about tax season and it totally blew up my plans, plus I got a number of custom requests, but I did get up about half of what I wanted to. The rest is still on the table just waiting to get listed.
So, coming very soon: giant bats, yellow musk creepers and zombies, starspawn, all new myconids, alternate races, carts and carriages and wagons (oh my), Zombie Unicorns!, Quicklings, Sprites, Flying Snakes, Pixies (so tiny!), Shambling Mounds, Giant Venus Flytraps, over 150 MORE heads, over 50 more torsos, over 20 more legs, juvenile rocs, more weapons and armor (really cool stuff!), and maybe, just maybe, we'll get to the pile of giants that we've been designing since around September... I'll just keep posting this until September of 2019 when I'll probably get around to it, lol.
We also are doing a massive restock/expansion of both Brick Forge and Brick Warriors parts, and we will be opening up the 'General Store' for items like backpacks, bottles and flasks, money, gems, and anything that just doesn't fit under 'weapons and armor'
Oh, yeah, and we have these guys too that just need a few finishing touches:
So much stuff is coming! So. Much. Stuff. I have already started listing dragons and even more PC Parts, but this is just the tip of the iceberg!
It is all assembled on the photography table, I just need to get it photographed and listed in the coming month, so there will be updates literally every single day for the next month or so - that's just how much is coming!
Off the top of my head... Dragons, Grick, Grell, new Zombies, MEGALODON!, Iron Golems, Wood Golems, Wyvern, LOTS OF DROW, Tabaxi, Tortles, Bearkin, Ratfolk, Half-orc, Half-ogre, Eladrin, Halflings, Tieflings, Dragonborn, GITH, jesters, giant (rideable!) bats, at least 20 variations on existing monsters. *pause to catch my breath* Zombie Unicorns!, Quicklings, Sprites, Flying Snakes, Pixies (so tiny!), Shambling Mounds, Giant Venus Flytraps, Blights, over 150 MORE heads, over 50 more torsos, over 20 more legs, OVER 60 more complete outfits, giant goats, giant eagles, giant vultures, juvenile rocs, more weapons and armor (really cool stuff!), and maybe, just maybe, we'll get to the pile of giants that we've been designing since around September...
OK, now take the list above and pretty much double it. Yep. This is by far the biggest addition to the site since we opened for business last year and we are uber-excited. It took a while for us to work out the kinks on the site, and to learn to organize and manage our inventory, and to gather our ideas together, but now we are expanding and then some, so hang in there and keep checking back - we can pretty much guarantee that there will be new stuff when you do!
Now if only I had time to redesign the homepage...
I'll be honest... 'Coming Soon' could mean 2 weeks or 9 months at this point. But I have decided that it would be cool to have a basic tutorial on setting up D&D scenarios with LEGO, and it would also be cool to have an idea gallery for inspiration.
I think the idea gallery will be more practical than fantastical. I think the internet is filled with awesome LEGO creations for D&D - if you have $1000 budget and 80 hours of time for building. I'm going to try to focus more on practical approached to making affordable scenes that still make for great LEGO D&D experiences.
I'm not going to say 'Keep Checking Back!', instead I'm going to say 'Keep bugging me about it!'. :)
