Hello everyone, sorry for my sudden lack of postings. I’ve been busy with an upcoming dragon armature design, the ballerina project (3d scanning my ten year old daughter), and a verity of other little things.
But I wanted to take a moment to remind you all that much has been learned from the recent 2017 release of Ranger. In particular with the springs in the feet. If anyone has been experiencing any problems, please don’t hesitate to reach out by emailing store-at-armaturenine-com. I’m happy to send out replacements. It’s important to me that everyone be having a positive experience with their armatures. The new and smaller hands are also getting better. In fact, despite the addition of the magnets, they’re now easier to make than the older larger hands so Ranger has come down in price another $5 today. Fundamentally what used to happen is there was a massive failure rate and I’d build three pairs of hands before I’d get one that worked. Now my failure rate is close to zero which feels amazing. Now that the design has stabilized I intend to start offering hand customization soon. But first I’m going to be releasing the claws again in anticipation of the upcoming dragon/beast release.
In other news, the buy-back program we had in February went really well. And I want you all to know that this offer will remain open for anyone wishing to return either a Rider or Ranger armature from 2012 or 2013. This is back when they only cost $15-$30 per armature. You’d get a 100% refund in the form of a store credit for the same product. Just email a photo of your armature and your mailing address and I can send you a return stamp.
Oh and finally, remember each month we have an art contest for a chance to win a free Ranger and Rider (we give out 3-4 armatures each month). Contest details are here: http://armaturenine.com/contest.html
And again, sorry for the absence. I suspect I’ll be bombarding you guys with updates soon once all these things I’m working on are ready to be shown.
stay in touch 🙂
