OK, so this summer has been a bit of a hot mess. But in the next 2 days I will be reorganizing my universe, and then new parts and new creations will be back. I'm not even going to waste my time listing all of the things, but if my life will just stay somewhat normal the number should be in the 500-750 range. I have soooo much to do, and I can't wait to get started.
OK, so for those of you have been following this site over the past few months, you probably noticed that my new creations and additions came to a screeching halt in July. There many reasons for this, but one of the main ones is Star Wars. Over the past few years I have been building up quite a pile of Star Wars sets and figures, since they often come in the large batches of LEGO that I find and I generally have no use for them.. They are now in the way and I need space. So I have spent days and days and days sorting through it all and getting it organized so I can clear it out. I am quite tired of it at this point, and it has really hindered my RPG creations. It is almost done though, and then I'll be super-focused on creations - I have over 50 new custom ideas and designs that are already started. I am loooooong overdue for some big releases and I'll try to not disappoint!
I should also mention that if you are interested in Star Wars ships or minifigures, you can send me an email. I have TONS.
Welp, so much for those plans. 10-per-day came to a crashing halt when my son got sick in early July (not COVID). And we had a heat wave - and my AC broke. And my car's transmission went bad. And orders got delayed, and giants are delayed - AGAIN. Seriously, I have been trying to finish giants for 2.5 years. Unbelievable. (Inconceivable!)
But all is not lost. I figured out something new for giants which should make them way way better, and new capes are still very very very close, and I have over 50 new monsters just waiting to be added. And I have all kinds of Mega Bloks to be added. And I am working on some amazing custom boats. I am down, but I am far from out.
Most importantly, I took this opportunity to reorganize the universe. Shelves, boxes, bins, drawers... and a new camera (finally!). We will be better, we will be faster, and we will have more time to create and add new things because of it. July is just a speed bump, but we'll get over it. Thanks for the support during this crud-tacular month!
10 new pieces. Every day. It's going well so far and it shows no sign of slowing down. My main focus now is to start adding more monsters while still adding 10 parts per day. Giants are soooooooo close. Grell also. And a Yugoloth too. And a few more skeletons. And some new liches (Acererak!), Other than that I don't have any major amazing new announcements - but every time you come back you are guaranteed to see something new. Oh yeah, and I'll try to get the Mega Bloks weapons up, now that I have added all of the shields. :)
OK, so I've changed my mind. 5 new items per day is not enough! I'm going to make it 10!
10 new items on the site every day from now until September 1st. And were also reviewing and upgrading all of our current creatures, especially those like bullywugs, goblins, bugbears, skeletons, etc.
Now I just need to get those pesky giants done!
OK, first of all we just restocked all of our Brick Warriors inventory, and we also put over 200 LEGO pieces back in stock. So that's no small thing, and we will continue to try and restock items that are currently out. Bullywugs should be up by Monday, if not sooner, and Bugbears too.
Now, more importantly, we are making a new pledge to our fans and customers, and it is a BIG one. Starting June 1st, we promise to add at least 5 new pieces to the site every single day from now until at least September 1st! Really! If you come back to the site every single day, we guarantee that you will see some new pieces from the last time you were here. It will be all kinds of things - heads, torsos, legs, boats, monsters of all kinds, Mega Bloks weapons and armor, animals... but it will all be new to the site and it won't stop for months. Some days we may add even more than 5. It's going to be a great summer!
I'm still years behind in getting everything updated and listed, but I have completed the bearkin and tortles sections. There are 30-40 pieces in each section to choose from, and we will add to them any time we find new pieces that work for those.
Tabaxi are up next, but not until I finish some really really really really overdue giants. If I can just get my camera to work properly, they should be here very soon. I actually have Frost Giants and Fire Giants completed, I just have not been able to get the photography done due to some camera issues.
Just a quick update from the trenches: I have just finished restocking well over 200 parts. I had them hanging around my workshop for the longest time and I just couldn't find the time to count them and get the site updated. But no more! The site is now updated. We will always have some items out of stock, but at least that number has been drastically reduced, and I will continue to reduce it even more as time allows.
But for right now I am shifting my focus towards capes! Not only have I found a dozen new fabrics to use, I have also started drawing up designs for at least 6 new patterns, including loincloths and possibly even togas! I am very excited to begin producing these. My initial 'standard' capes had a very good response and I am long overdue in producing new shapes and colors/fabrics. Stay tuned! I am aiming for April 18th, now that I finally got my taxes done. ;)
Hello Everyone! I have gone full hermit-mode! I will continue to remain open and fulfilling orders.
I want to let everyone know that as of right now there is no possible COVID contamination in our orders. It is highly highly unlikely that the virus would survive in the mail anyway, but even if it could, we are currently isolated and healthy.
My wife has been working at home for a while, and I haven't even left the house in well over a week. I homeschool my children, so they are also not going to be bringing this into my household.
All orders are picked up by my rural mail carrier from my mailbox, so that is also not a contamination risk.
If for any reason I suspect that there is any chance of my becoming infected, I will quarantine myself at that point in time and I will voluntarily shut down Adventure Bricks until the coast is 100% clear.
Your continued support at this time is appreciated. There are a lot of people hurting right now from these mandatory shutdowns - support them in any safe way that you can. I believe there are tougher times ahead.
