Classic Snowtrooper Ensemble - Updates
Current Shipping Estimate: Summer 2017 (June 21 - September 21)
Latest Update: June 20th, 2017
- This ensemble is in its final stages of production with many of its components completed. However, some components are still in production, including the helmet. While we had originally anticipated production for this item to be complete in time for a Spring 2017 delivery, after a recent review of our production schedule, it has been determined that this is unfortunately not the case. During pre-production of the helmet included in this ensemble, we discovered that our original mold was not able to produce helmets that consistently met our high quality and standards. Our production team decided that a steel mold was necessary to ensure the same level of perfection in accuracy and shape for every helmet. This necessary but unexpected change has shifted our production timeline into the next season. As such, we have updated the shipping estimate for the ensemble into Summer 2017, with an anticipation that it will be available for shipment in early Summer.
October 20th, 2016: This update is to provide notification of a feature change to this ensemble. As noted in our January update, all our products at ANOVOS go through multiple stages of development, licensing, and safety testing before they are released. When we originally launched this item on our website, we requested glove size when customers placed their pre-order. During development of this ensemble the production team determined that these gloves will be provided in one size only. This is not anticipated to affect the wearability or function of this ensemble for our customers.
June 6th, 2016: This update is to provide notification of a feature change to this ensemble. As noted in our January update, all our products at ANOVOS go through multiple stages of development, licensing, and safety testing before they are released. During development of this ensemble our production team determined that this ensemble would provide its greatest overall value to our customers if it was provided clean as opposed to weathered. This allows our customers to wear it as if they were just issued the uniform by the Empire while also giving them the option to customize the weathering themselves if they so desire. We are excited about providing our customers with this flexibility and look forward to getting this ensemble into our customers’ hands.
January 16th, 2016: This update is to provide notification of a feature change to this ensemble. All of our products at ANOVOS go through multiple stages of development, licensing, and safety testing before they can be released. When we proposed this item to our community, we desired to provide "Environmental Systems" within the helmets as a premium perk, with fans and a power supply to help keep the wearer comfortable while wearing their costume. After much trial and error, and with our production timeline in mind, it was determined that this was not feasible for this product. This is a decision that did not come lightly, but ultimately was one that needed to be made.
