TOPIC: Updates on Restocking
#66884
Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Month, 1 Week ago  
The plus side to resin sets never being in stock is the positive affect on our wallets of spending a lot less on df throughout the year. If this stuff was in stock all the time I think I would be putting in monthly orders. Whew so glad there's no stock for years at a time ;). The only negative is that it sells out before my budget allows me to order but I guess that is also good on my wallet so I can't buy df sets for a few more years. That's what happened with the chasm resin set. I was going to order six of them and now we have no idea if it will ever be stocked again along with any resin cavern sets like rivers and lakes.


Honestly I wish we could kickstart helping DF keep the resin sets in stock year round somehow. Help them expand storage facilities, help them put in larger resin orders so we aren't all saying that it will sell out before all the fans have a chance to collect. There has to be someway to help fix the problem. We all love df and want to support them. Can't we put in bulk orders in advance by preordering the resin sets? I would rather buy these from df directly rather than paying inflated ebay prices. Even if I had a six month preorder window where I could preorder a year in advance to insure that I would be able to snag the restock sets would be better than how fast restocks sell out now.

I am trying to be as patent as I can. But this thread was started a year and 5 months ago. This is how long people have been waiting for resin restocks. Since then there have been not 1 but 2 kick starters. All the time with DF saying "soon soon soon" on the resin. It seems every time someone asks or a date that they estimated got close, the resin gets pushed back. Really frustrating.

I think this thread is a testament to how great your product is. If people didnt love this stuff I doubt they would get so testy. I'm sure its just as frustrating for DF to read this thread knowing customers are ready to buy. When the product comes in I shall voice my approval with my visa and all the waiting will be forgotten !

It should be great for us to know if the restock and catacomb set II will be available this month or next one or in october.
It would allow us to plan things better since we're in summer and some of us are in holidays or will go for it !

Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Month, 1 Week ago  
So now that Gen Con has started, any firm word on when the re stocks are going to finally be here, or do we need to bear with it for another year and 5 months? I am very frustrated and getting very tired of waiting.

Put your big boy pants on Ken. Europe has their restocks and these are due in the states any time. I'm guessing it was delayed or was held up in customs
becuase Jeff said he expected them two weeks ago.

I dropped 1400.00 in gift cards and havent use any snarky sarcastic remarks yet. Well maybe to my coworkers but that was a separate issue.

Unfortunately, DF likely doesn't have a good option for stateside resin production that wouldn't increase costs. The reality of overseas business means customs, weather, and other fun stuff that larger companies can afford solutions to. Honestly though, even Dell Computers and Kirby vacuum have problems getting their power cords shipped over on time even when they're only coming from Mexico (personal knowledge on this). The main method is overstocking the local warehouse to keep ahead of demand, which doesn't work economically for a company DF's size.

Long story short, the delays are a reality of this kind of business. MBA's stuff is now about a year and a couple months late compared to the original date for just the prototypes! This problem isn't unique to DF, it's part of the reality of doing business with China. That is unavoidable unless you want a big price hike on product costs. It would be awesome if someone could find a way to affordably produce hand painted resin stateside at these scales, but so far no successful takers to my knowledge.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

I've brought up Mexico a couple of times, but I don't have access to the kind of info necessary for a meaningful cost-benefit comparison.

Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Month, 1 Week ago  
I don't know enough about the specifics to make a call on that portion, but I can tell you that they have a much more flexible idea of timeliness than most of us USians. I have family that has to work extensively with staff in Mexico and they have a hard time meeting the second time table and almost never make the first. They have a much more fluid concept of time, I guess it's a cultural thing. They literally missed a ship's launch date from port by three days because they just took too long and they didn't understand why the American customer (a large corporation) was upset that the power cords wouldn't arrive for another three weeks. It also resulted in an increased shipping cost.

I wonder if unpainted resin sets might ever be offered so we can save on the paint costs and customize them.
