Classic Snowtrooper Helmet - Updates
Current Shipping Estimate: Spring 2018 (March 20 - June 20)
Latest Update: June 19th, 2018
- We have been receiving these iconic helmets in waves and shipping to customers as they were received. However after reassessing timelines and other projects with the production team responsible for these helmets, we had to reschedule the future delivery projection of the current run to Summer 2018.
- March 19th, 2018: A reorder is of this accessory is in production. Our manufacturer experienced a slight delay in completing the current production due to a traditional celebration in their area. These helmet accessories have been shipping to customers and will continue to ship throughout the remainder of the Spring season. We have adjusted the shipping calendar to reflect Spring 2018 to reflect this.
- November 15th, 2017: As noted in our September update, our manufacturers are producing this product in waves and we will be shipping to customers as product becomes available from our manufacturer. Although some helmets have completed production, far fewer have completed production this season than previously anticipated. Additionally, due to the upcoming holidays, any shipment departing from our manufacturer during the remaining days of the Fall season is not anticipated to arrive at our fulfillment center in time for delivery to customers this season. While some helmets have completed production, they unfortunately did not complete production in time to beat the holiday shipping delays. Sadly, due to these facts, we must update our shipping estimate to Winter 2017.
- September 13th, 2017: This helmet remains in production with our manufacturer. As with many projects, our manufacturers are producing this product in waves. We anticipate the first wave to complete production at the end of September and be available for shipment in early fall. This wave is expected to cover all orders placed prior to March 26th, 2016. The remaining outstanding orders are estimated to complete production and be available for shipment during Fall 2017. As such, we must update our shipping estimate to Fall 2017 for all orders and will deliver to customers as product becomes available from our manufacturer.
- June 20th, 2017: This helmet is currently in production with our manufacturer. 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 this helmet 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 to Summer 2017, with an anticipation that it will be available for shipment in early Summer.
June 6th, 2016: This update is to provide notification of the weathered variant discontinuation for this helmet. Affected customers will be notified via direct email and be given options regarding their order.
