ROTJ Hero Run 2 Update Video

LUKE HERO UPDATE! Some good news and not-so-good news.Let’s start with the not-so-good news so you can have your spirits lifted with the good news LOL! Okay; feel free to watch the video below instead if you don’t want to read somewhat of a lengthy update. Shipping of the hilts is going to be delayed until the end of October. Reason being is that after buffing and completing the surface finishing on all of the parts 500+ emitters and lower bodies, it has revealed more small dings and dents than anticipated. It seems the engineers did not package the parts appropriately and the couriers decided to play football with the boxes. I will certainly not be shipping any parts, which have damage like this. Even if it is a 1mm scratch or ding; it’s just not going to happen. No way jose! Also the laser cut arrow panels arrived earlier this week that are the pieces mounted to the side of the control box and all 300 had, only what I can describe as, heat scorch from the laser. So I had to box those back up and ship them to a metal finishers so they can use their higher end equipment to polish these thin pieces of metal. So, many of the emitters and lower sections need re machined then individually packaged rather than being assembled with the other parts during shipping. This is going to take a few weeks and the laser cut panels need to come back from the metal finishers. So far we are around 1 or 2 days overdue the 6-8 week estimated time frame from the pre order window. That’s pretty good me thinks and I can only assume we will be at the 11 or 12 week mark once the hilts start to ship. If I had more assistance I would be able to package them quicker but I estimate packaging will start around the 3rd week of October so shipping notifications will be sent out then and hilts should start arriving early November. Now, for the good news!Because of this delay, all of those people who are on the pre-order list will receive the control box PCB kit (PCB, 2 tactile switches and rectangular LED’s) free of charge. So no need to worry about ordering those anymore; if you’re on the pre-order, you will get them free –simple as that. I’ll also make a full tutorial video on how to install them too should you want to convert yours using the awesome GOTH3D chassis systems that will be available. So with that, I am going to get back to work! I have just become an uncle also which has taken up a lot of my time recently. I tried to convince my sister to name her Leia but no luck! Nothing seems to be going right these last few weeks! ARGH! ☹
