Exciting News and Changes

2012 saw the beginning of the IroNilla collaboration, as well as the introduction of the Universe of Violence and Gorewad Monsters toylines. We feel that we did some good in our freshman year, producing toys, but we also felt that we could have achieved more. We'd like to offer a wide variety of custom figures, and offer them as efficiently as we can. In order to do this, things have to change in some ways.

Universe of Violence figures are now going to be released as single figures. There will be opportunities to buy them as combo packs, but each figure will be released as a single figure with accessories. These accessories can be anything from companion figures, to helmets/armor, or even environmental details. We'll release one new figure a month, and we'll make as many figures as demand calls for... But when that month is over, the figure goes in the figurative vault to make way for the new figure. 2012 saw the release of six Universe of Violence figures... Under the new structure, 2012 will see the rise of twelve new figures, and a host of new accessories.  Hell Turtle was the beginning, and in February Eric Nilla's UoV boss figure will be available. Stay tuned.

Gorewad Monsters first reared their ugly little heads in 2012, and in 2013 Ironhaus will be handling most of the load in concerns to the Gorewads. We have listened to the feedback on them, and future Gorewads will be more along the lines of disgusting and irreverent (GPK, Mini Boglins, etc). The micro wrestlers will still be produced, but they will be tied in with the Universe of Violence line. 

As for all of what we have done in 2012, in order for us to charge forward with the new, we have to make room. Starting with the release of Eric Nilla's Boss UoV figure, the 2012 offerings from IroNilla will be pulled from the stores, and put into the "vault". If you wanted UoV or Gorewads from 2012, get them now. Starting next month, they will not be offered. Not to say that those figures will never see the light of day again, but we'll be more focused on progressing forward. 

Also, the new structure will allow us to take part in other interesting collaborations with other great artists. Stay tuned for news on future collaborations, as well as more special release figures from Eric Nilla and Ironhaus, respectively. There will be something for everybody in 2013, and it will come fast. Be prepared. 

Finally, we do take all feedback into consideration, so absolutely feel free to drop us a line, and let us know what you think. Hopefully, you all will be as excited about the new direction of things as we are.

Eric Nilla and Jimmy Rommel
