Defiance Games: German Walker Konzept
Nach einer längeren Stille kommt mal wieder ein neues Konzept von Deviance Games.
Darüber hinaus liefert Tony auch eine Erklärung für die Verzögerungen der letzten Wochen:
Our first set for this new plastic process – Hudson’s Bugs – was in many ways both a great choice and a poor one. The Bug box consists of 30 Bugs each made with 10 parts – 4 legs, 2 body parts, 2 arms, a head, and a 30mm round base. There are LOADS of parts in the box and they take a LONG time to produce. It was great to start with these as it was the perfect test of the system and helped Ed iron out a lot of issues and go from experiment to full-on production. It was bad though because they’re just a tough set to produce in quantity – a lot of man-hours go into them. For example we can get about 6 German boxes for every Bug box!
The Bugs were creating a HUGE bottleneck and holding up all the other releases so we decided that they would have to be sidelined for general distribution for the time being and we would just focus on getting the pre-orders out and then catch up on them for distribution release later.
At the same time that all this was going on, we bought new plastic equipment and moved into our new production/warehouse space here in Boston. We had to get the whole team up to speed on the process – and in doing so we ended up changing some things along the way including how Ed was doing molds so that the process could go faster.
Every time we thought we had a handle on things – something would creep up to knock us back. Well – knock on wood – we’ve finally got it all figured out and we’ve been producing steadily and consistently for the last few weeks and building up and shipping German sets.
