STAR WARS 2019 Q2 Update

2019 Q2 Brand Update

This second quarter update for 2019 will bring all of our outstanding product delivery dates in line with our newly revised production schedule. This year has been about opening new avenues of production, with a focus on smaller runs to get older items produced and delivered. While this meant many products had to re-enter production stateside, we are happy to share that a few products are coming much sooner than anticipated because of this.

Our production schedule projected through Q1 2020 is prioritizing items according to: how long an item has been on our shipping calendar, if the item was already nearly completed, and how readily available the raw goods were for production. Organizing all of these variables has been a complicated task and we are thankful you gave us the time to address these issues properly.

Finally, to  simplify delivery dates, we are moving back to a quarterly system as noted below.

Q1 — January to March
Q2 — April to June
Q3 — July to September
Q4 — October to December
