Thread: Creepy Classics available now!

  1. #1

    Creepy Classics available now!



    Finally ready for you the true Cast-a-Way Fans! These classic styled monsters with that crazy 70's flair! From our basement to your greedy hands!Tim Baron's artwork just solidifies the whole thing and we couldn't be prouder. These are limited to complete sets (4 figures individualy clammed). There are 20 sets and that's it. These may not be sold individually, that will depend on sales. With only 20 available that's gonna be tough, so the only way to gaurantee you get them is the set.

    They are available now and are $100 plus shipping and handling.

    I thought I begged you guys in an earlier thread not to release these until after Christmas? lol

    Oh well, I don't have $100 to spare right now, but they sure do look nice. Enjoy them, people who get them.

    I placed my order for a Zombie Santa last night and for the Creepy Classics set this morning, paid for shipping twice, but can they be combined? And maybe a refund given? No problem if it's not possible, just asking.
    Either way, more monsters headed towards Belgium

    This is a bit naughty, I thought these would be a regular release, and not some quick Xmas money for u lot, Ill be missing out as well.

    Hardly a day goes by that we aren't asked when these will be back... , so you produce 20 sets

    Alex, I understand why you might think that, but let me add some information for perspective, and let me say I am not saying this out of anger or frustration. We appreciate your business and we would never ask you to blindly defend us or not ask questions. So thanks for bringing this up.

    1. Money! It's always the goal. But for us timing is crucial, having time to do small projects is very hard for us. We had planned to do these next year and Tim's artwork came much faster(and better) than we anticipated... so we thought we'd get them out for the holidays (turns out we were right, more on that in a bit).

    2. 20 sets?! why so few? Well these are hand made figures, like the originals 6 years ago. So when you add the Zombie Claus to the 20 sets we are talking about 100 figures we have to make... yes Jason and I make these by hand. Getting 100 figures made in China is nothing (they won't do less than 1000 anyway), but for two guys it's a big deal. Remember we still have to run the site, work day jobs, have families, celebrate the holidays (eat and sleep if we get a chance)

    3. Why not make them in China? You mean besides the $14,000 it would cost to start up? That's before we would see one red cent, and after making thousands of figures. While we love the enthusiasm folks have for our stuff and the passion they bring. The Chinese are not big on making figures for "passion" and "enthusiasm", they want cold hard $USD$ cash!

    So in wrapping up... two guys making all these figures, can't spend loads of money and not see return, had an opportunity to speed up the timetable and took it, and finally we have a good idea of how many to make and how many we'll sell... over half are gone as of right now.

    We hate that some folks will miss out, and if we could we'd sell these forever, but that's just not feasible so we do the best we can... And as always THANK YOU for your support and business!

    -Dave
