Faster Shipping On Select Products
We listened and we’re innovating. ANOVOS began in 2009 with a dream of bringing high-quality costumes, props and accessories from our favorite sci-fi franchises to fellow fans. Thanks to your support and continued patience, we’ve identified our strengths and weaknesses. We are now at a point where we can combine technologies to optimize not only a quicker made replica, but also a quicker shipped product. Through the combined technologies of 3D scanning, printing, and integrative manufacturing steps, we have pioneered a new system which has drastically impacted our production speed for the better. Now you will have the opportunity to hold your new purchase in just a matter of days rather than months.
Our long-term plan is to have this system implemented for our best-selling pieces, with pre-orders reserved for just a minority of our products. Unfortunately, this does not affect the timelines of previously released items, as their production has already been set in motion.
With this new initiative, we are taking a conservative approach one item at a time, and there seems no better product to bring to life than the new Death Trooper helmet accessory from Rogue One: A Star Wars™ Story
. In record time, this helmet was scanned on set, remastered by our CG sculpting team, 3D printed in California, and finally realized in sturdy fiberglass at our manufacturing facility. It is now being shipped via air direct from manufacturer in waves to allow for quicker fulfillment without passing through our distribution center. We are genuinely excited about this new process and hope you’ll enjoy a shorter wait with each new item we introduce with this production method.
