Rhyme or Reason - Chronoscope Bases
Posted 22 April 2009 - 06:26 AM
We found a new supplier, but the kind they offered that was inside the margin that would mean we wouldn't have to raise prices had a beveled edge. It was prettier, and a lot of us liked it, so we decided to go with that. Then something strange happened - Chronoscope sales and popularity shot through the roof! It has been a popular line from its inception, but suddenly, restock and initial orders of new releases went up. Our 6 month supply of bases became a 4 month supply, and we ran out again! Once again we were forced to use our square bases for a week while an emergency supply of round bases was shipped to us.
Currently, we have the beveled round bases again, but many of you will notice square bases on a lot of figures - dependent entirely on when the figure was made.
On a similar note, at the same time as we ran out of round bases, we ran out of the Grey cards, and were forced to use DHL green cards and write "Chronoscope" really big at the top.
Let me just say, anticipating "supplies required" is one job here I'm glad I don't have!

But he's got none of that.
Left a trail of blood and tears
'Til King of Hell, he sat.

One thing this topic line made me think of was The Phantom Tollbooth. The Princess of sweet rhyme and the Princess of pure reason. I wouldn't mind seeing quite a few of the characters from that book hit the Chronoscope line.
