TOPIC: Updates on Restocking
#51529
Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
Hey there Forgies,
I'm yet another person that has jumped on the KS bandwagon and am already looking at other DF stuff I can buy. I had a question about restocking:
Will everything that is currently sold out become restocked at the next restocking?
Eg all the wicked addition sets etc or should I start staking out eBay?

Looking forward to becoming a full on DF addict

Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
I am also interested in learning what will be restocked. Specifically, I am curious about the Limited Edition sets. The only thing that is marked as "sold out forever" is the Ruins of the Ancients entrance. Will any of the limited edition sets be restocked? If their runs are finished, could there be perhaps an archive section of the site created to move those products to? I'm another person who is starting my collection due to the Kick Starter and the out of stock on the Limited Edition Sets confuses me a bit.

A few Sets are no longer produced and it would indeed be nice if DF had them in a special "in memoriam" section. For now, you can see them upon the web site of a french DF enthusiast: www.lessouterrainsoublies.fr/DecorsDwarvenForge.html

I would love an update as to what will be restocked next and when they will be back. I'm looking to put in a couple of orders but stuff I want is not in. Seems alot of the basic cavern and dungeon sets are out.

I believe they have said it would be sometime this summer and that we should click the button to have an email sent to let us know once it happens.

Its almost like their factory hasnt commited to specific sets being completed this summer for shipment. I would imagine every time someone checks the website these days that sales are lost since so much stock is missing.

Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
I have to say -- I love DF and I understand that it's a small company with limited resources, and I imagine right now that all those resources are dedicated to making sure the KS runs smoothly and all those orders get shipped out on time. It's a huge enterprise.

THAT SAID -- come on, DF. The radio silence on restocking is beyond the pale at this point. I asked several times about a restock of the Catacombs set back when that sold out in, what, February? Something like that? I asked nearly four months ago about restocking and NEVER GOT AN ANSWER! And there have been a lot of people asking since then. Plus, you've got all these potential new customers brought over to the website by the KS, and they're seeing "sold out" and there's NO indication of when anything will be back, and the forums allow us to ask but nobody has answered! "Summer" could mean almost anything -- could have meant two weeks ago, could mean late August or even early September ("we were aiming for mid-August but a slight delay caused it to be the second week of September!") Frankly, it's almost a non-answer.

We understand that DF doesn't have total control over these things, and we understand that maybe "summer" (meaning some time between May and October) is the best approximate guess you can make. But just show up and SAY that, guys! This is the equivalent of having people drive by your store day after day and seeing a "CLOSED" sign. The wait and the imprecision of any guesses about how long the wait will be are BOTH a lot easier to take if we hear from the DF folks every now and then letting us know they're paying attention and have something to say.

Remember, too, that this is an expensive product and people have budgets. Is EVERYTHING going to be re-stocked? Or just some sets? Will there be new stuff? Having Hellscape 2 show up as a neat little surprise was fun and all, but what about someone who waited for months for Catacombs 2 and then splurged on getting eight sets and had no budget left for DF? We need to know when things are coming so we can plan our spending, save up for the sets we want, or at least know that nothing is coming out until time X so we can go ahead and buy product X, Y or Z that we also might want, but would pass up if we knew a DF restock was around the corner.

OK, rant over.

Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
Its the budget that is the issue for me as well. Since limited efition restocks are suprises I hesitate to purchase non-limited editions since I might miss out on sets that may never be producef again.

Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
really sorry guys...believe it or not, i just overlooked this question and I guess Jeff did as well, or else he didn't want to give any wrong answers....when we are not sure yet of things, it is hard to commit to saying something....

as most of you know restocking is one of the hardest parts of this whole business...it takes anywhere from 4-7 months from the time we say we want something to when it's available in the warehouse...it's really tough to time it properly, especially when you don't know how much money you might have at the time you gotta pay...there are all sorts of unknown factors that come in to this...

we will be getting some restocks along with the Catacomb 2 Set but honestly, we have not even figured out yet what that set will be comprised of...

the folks we work with have been completely burdened with all the Kickstarter work and so, development of the Catacombs 2 Set has taken longer than usual...good news is that all the pieces are done...i just have to paint some final pieces and we will place an order for a container...probably by the end of the week...

bad news is, from that point it will take from 4-7 months to get here...hopefully, it can arrive at the same time as all the Kickstarter stuff in late October...that is what we are pushing for....

I am really sorry we have so little in stock...believe me, I really wish we did, we could have made a ton of sales......before the Kickstarter we just didn't have enough money to keep everything in stock...now going forward things should be better...we are still making some tough decisions on what we should restock and what doesn't make sense anymore...for instance, are room sets needed? We are getting in a lot of Game Tile pieces and are not sure how well if at all the Room sets will do now....what do you guys think? Do you see yourselves ever buying anymore room sets when PVC room pieces are in stock at half the cost? It is a question we are struggling with...probably we will get in the bare minimum and see what happens...but even getting on the bare minimum of certain sets will not allow us to restock everything...we could use some feedback here on this issue....

we are also trying to figure out some issues we had with the Cavernous Rivers and Lake Sets...if you remember, a small number of the sets had the water detaching and causing de-coloration...we are resolving that because I still want to carry these beautiful sets, but i don't want this issue to happen anymore, it really hurts me...it may be that we can only produce these sets at certain times of the year when the weather conditions in the factory are best for the drying factors...if this is actually the reason why we have this issue at all.....speaking of the Cavern Line: since we are most likely doing a Cavern Set in PVC we are wondering how many regular Cavern Sets we should order....i want to order them at least one last time...but I still don't know what is possible in PVC...will it be less detailed than Resin? I just don't know yet until we do some samples...I was incredibly impressed with the PVC walls...will the PVC Caverns also be so great? Once again, a minimum would be prudent...

Passages: we are going to do some in PVC, do we restock the R&P Set? probably a minimum...

Up till now we have been completely busy sculpting all the add on's for the Kickstarter and so all our attention was focused there....they are all sculpted now, and i have to paint one last batch of masters...

Please have patience, we are working as fast as we can on all these issues...sorry for the lack of response, it's hard to keep up to date on all these threads but we will try to do better:)

some sort of reply is better than no reply...yes, it's true i think...

So this means that there won't be anything at GenCon that isn't already showing as in stock right now on the web site? I was really hoping for RotA 2.
