The last email said 

As there are hundreds of sets, we will be shipping out by waves while concurrently manufacturing in China starting mid-February and onward. A two month pause will occur due to Chinese New Year”

I never did understand why the Chinese New Year celebrations (which last for 23 days) would cause a TWO MONTH delay in shipping....

I work with a lot of vendors in China and Vietnam for work. Realistically, they only take 3-4 weeks of vacation. Two months is kinda BS. Only the super rich take two months off for Chinese New Year.

It’s anovos attempting to pad the timeline.

I have been using the chat quite a bit lately and it sounds like the customer service department is very limited and they don’t get much information at all. As we know Anovos in general has a horrible communication problem with customers and apparently within too. The CSR’s always say they are asking for the information and can only give what the production department is giving to them.

 

In my opinion it’s the production department and their lack of communication with everyone that is driving Anovos down.

 

 

It sure would be nice if upper management would address customers and fans at a Con or something.

 

I wonder if a small group of customers went to an Anovos booth at an event with posters listing our first hand experiences with Anovos, wait times and lack of communication. Something civil and factual like “Hello I am an Anovos customer and am still waiting on my order/refund for 2 years now and still no hard shipping dates”. Maybe that would get their attention.

I just posted asking about the not screen accurate shoulder seam. We’ll see if it gets approved but I doubt it.

Such a misguided marketing piece. Can’t believe they degraded the Alpha kits as “large and clunky”.

Given their access to scans I’m perplexed that so much is still so inaccurate.

This is par for the course with Anovos, I'm dumbfounded why anyone sees it differently.

I've asked in multiple emails and kept getting the same answer to how the yoke/back join method differs from the Alpha/Beta kits, "these kits will not need painting" well no they wouldn't if you just put them together how you made them but if put together correctly they will need gluing, filling and paint.

 

Also looks like the same will have to be modified on the sides of the ab section which should also be seamless ;) 

CRL:

Abdomen Section

  • The abdomen section must wrap around the wearer's body without a visible seam.

Apart from a rushed assembly and test-fitting I think it looks great:)

I suspect the 501st probably doesn't even cover 50% of orders.  You can't always assume that we (the 501st or similar groups for other costumes) are the primary market for stuff like this. They are making a product for a market that doesn't want to have to muck about with Bondo and paint so they can look cool 2-3 times a year at costume parties/Halloween and conventions.

Both Alpha and Beta kits were considerably inaccurate and required a lot of extra work to make them right. This latest version is no different. What's new? Despite Anovos's obvious shortcomings I'm not aware of a single FOTK armor supplier that has an "out of the box ready" product that only needs assembly without painting. Is there something new on the market?
