Question and Answer

From the Comments section.

Anonymous said... No hints on set #3? Is it Non-Civil War?

No hints yet. Still working on the "logistics" and timing of the whole project. And of course, there's always the chance that the entire thing could end up going an entirely different direction. Each project works at it's own pace. It's entirely possible that while working on set #3, set #4 could actually outpace it and be released first. Whether it's because the sculpting gets done quicker, or the factory has more luck prepping the figures for molding, you just never know how it will play out.

Is it non-civil war? Yes, it is. Thought we'd give something else a try, test the waters outside of the 1860's. If it's a success, we may continue with the range for a couple of sets, but after that we'll probably return to the War Between the States.

I'd love to lay out my 5 year plan, let you know what we're planning, but those plans can change at the drop of a hat, and would leave much disappointment. So we'll just saythis; we have a 5 year plan that includes several sets of plastic toy soldiers, and I think you're going to like them.

If you ever have any other questions, feel free to post the in the comments section, and I'll try to answer them.

I'm glad it is not civil war.
I buy them any way because the sculpting is so good.

hey Beau, I wish it were more civil war!!! With the 150th anniversary of the start of the war between the states next year. I kind of hoped we might get some personality figures (Wishful thinking from me) what ever you do I will buy some. Cheers, Bri.

Smart move not to prematurely announce next sets. I think that's where Conte has gotten in trouble. He gets enthusiastic about a possible project and shares it with collectors (I know from talking with him on the phone), word gets out. Then, if something goes wrong with the project and it either gets delayed or has to be dropped altogether folks accuse him of lying or making false promises. Better, I think, to play your cards close to chest and surprise us! Christmas again!

BOY, i'M EXCITED ABOUT THIS SET! I'm really hoping that its World War (one or two, but two would be more profitable). Best of luck with future plans!
