Updates: 2015 Sets

It’s been a tricky year so far and Cult-Stuff have without doubt had more than a few setbacks. We have had some major problems with our release schedule and our offices/equipment/technology and art. With the flooding and the need to recommission artwork we were left in a major hole. After restructuring our plans for the next few years we have been slowly building up to getting on a schedule and getting caught up. It seems we have missed several orders for 1914, and having just this weekend gone over all our records I can see now that we have 6 retail customers with missing sets, and several dealers and customers waiting for redemption sketch cards and artifacts. The good news is we now know where all of these items are as they have been unpacked back into some sort of order, and we are processing these now. They may be very late but they are coming folks.

Civil War Chronicles Vol. II is also now complete. We made the conscious decision not to offer this for presale until we had everything back and in hand. This was in order to guarantee the product would be ready to ship as it was ordered. I am pleased we did this, it has cost us a lot in lost revenue but we don’t like taking money from people and then delaying the product.  We have had to recommission a lot of the art from this set for a number of reasons and we have now cut it to less than 100 cases available. This has now all but sold out to dealers and we have kept a small amount back for retail sales. You will find a lot more about this set later today as the product is going to be added to the website and the limited stock we have available will be available to order.

The good news is we are now on course to have a great second half to 2015. You will see in some of the photos below we have been putting in a lot of work to get good cards put together and ready to ship. We will be shipping Civil War Chronicles Volume II from next week, these cards are done, the inserts are complete and the cases are being packed into boxes now.

The new Adventures into the Unknown is also printed and will be out as soon as the final inserts are back, we expect that to be out for September or sooner. Sherlock Holmes the Long Stories Volume 1 is going to be out in August and we will be taking orders for that in July. This will be one of the best Sherlock sets yet and we will for the first time be offering a very limited edition Sherlock binder to keep your growing collection in. The War Illustrated 1915 will be out this year and follows on directly from the 1914 set. We are still planning to release Fell’s Belles be the end of the year but that is very dependant on Aly’s workload once the set is printed and approved.

Let me say once again to those with missing cards or sets, we are sorry about the delays and problems in getting your products out to you, but we will make sure you get everything, and thanks so much to all the folks who have emailed and sent good wishes, thanks for sticking with us and I hope you enjoy the sets coming out, they have taken a lot more time and work than we anticipated but things are looking up for the rest of the year! We are cutting print runs and increasing the quality so stay tuned for more announcements soon and the big Civil War update later today!

Update

Fans and collectors will be aware that The War Illustrated: 1914 (which has some fantastic sketch cards in it) has been trickling out to customers over the last month. It has been slower than we would have liked due to a flood in the office which involved a lot of floors being taken up and other work. We lost some computer equipment but we are catching up. If you have an outstanding order then rest assured that it is on it’s way. If you have been in touch and not had a response from us then hold on we are working back through the backlog. If you’re waiting on products they are shipping, and we still have a limited number of 5th anniversary boxes left along with the new War Illustrated sets. Look for an update on new products soon!

2013 Mystery Boxes, 1914 Preview Sets & Updates:

2013 Mystery Boxes, 1914 Preview Sets & Updates:

It has been a tumultuous and very busy year for all those involved with Cult Stuff. We have released more sets this year than ever before, and made a massive (and still incomplete) move into a new and much larger premises that offers more than three times the space and lot of other practical advantages.  This has coincided with a home move for the full time staff as well, which has of course added to the workload! We are pleased to say we have met 99% of our obligations in relation to orders, however we do have 5 customers with missing or incorrect orders, these mostly relate to our Summer Sale Boxes. For some reason a small number of our US customers failed to receive these however I can say now that replacements for missing orders/items have shipped to everyone affected! Our internet connection was only fully restored yesterday but we are making up for lost time!

Over the last year we managed to release more products than ever before, including The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Art of Burlesque, Vintage Erotica, War of the Worlds Book 1, Civil War Chronicles Vol. 1, the new Summer Sale Box, and Beyond Stokers Dracula. I know it’s late in the year but we have two left and they start shipping from this week! We will of course be doing our end of year Mystery Boxes! Limited to just 70 these will be very sought after, as they include some fantastic content. We had to delay the release of our second Sherlock Holmes set until January 2014, so we decided to focus a little more on the great detective for our end of year special, and we are pleased to announce that you will find a Sherlock sketch in every Mystery box, along with some other Holmes related goodies! Of course thats not all, as with every year we will be adding in a product from our archive, and a host of other goodies, including some of the exclusive show & limited edition promos/sets and variants that appeared this year, along with some new items. These will be shipping in the next few days but they are very very limited. Check the product information page for more details.

 

1914 Preview Sets:

1914PS

This limited edition preview set will show you what we have in store for 2014 and the centenary of WWI. This is our most ambitious history product yet, we will be aiming to detail aspects of WWI in a number of sets over the coming years. Next year will see the first of these to mark the beginning of what H.G. Wells idealistically referred to as “The War That Will End War”.

In advance of this we have a 9 card preview set, along with an exclusive P1 promo card (while stocks last) shipping next week. Many of the sets will include a premium insert (more than 50%) including fold outs, artifacts and more than 150 sketch cards from illustrators including Patrick Hamill, Laura Inglis, Marcya Dye, Scott Fellows, Dan Gorman, Eric Van Elslande, Terry Pavlet, and Reid Fisher.  Check out the product information page for more details!

Beyond Stokers Dracula

Set Info

This fantastic follow up set to last years sell out is about to be released and it’s full of brilliant art. We have cut the production numbers to just 50 cases and to give extra value we are putting two sketch cards in every pack! The art is outstanding and you can see some samples (with more to follow) on the Product Page. Every case will have at least 21 sketch cards (yes the case cards are also sketches) from some of the best illustrators in the business. We waited until the last moment to put up the information on this set as we wanted to make sure we could make the shipping deadline, and we can say now this set is shipping in the next 2 weeks!
