    Hi guys, Was wondering on the realease of the officer Doberman figure its been aggggggges, Mick

    Hi Mick and all,
    My apologies, please let me confirm it will be released this year.
    I sculpt for a company full time and also run CGS on my own doing all moulding and casting etc.
    I appreciate it has been since Sept last year when I took ownership of the piece and thank you all for your patience and especially Kaz, I hope he is still patient with me :)

    I really pride myself on quality rather than quantity and want to do it justice.
    It takes a long time to sprue and mould correctly and then the multiple casts, this kit has a lot of parts and extremely detailed.
    I have many masters for release and work on them alongside my sculpting work, when I release a kit I also need to meet demand with castings so I am conscious of not releasing too many kits at once.
    Again my apologies for those that are looking forward to this, I too am and can assure you it will be worth the wait :)
    It is sort of the double edged sword of showing it prior to a release date and gaining interest or showing only when ready, both of which have benefits
    Best wishes and thanks again
    Graham

    Hi.
    It was aimed for Euro at the latest, however I am planning on releasing before then so watch this space around August.
    It is the next release by CGS, thank you for your interest, it will be worth it.
    If you facebook cgs military figures you will see the base has been cast already and hollowed .
    Best wishes

    Whats the latest on this figure?
  20. Gra30 PlanetFigure Supporter

    I promise he is coming, I know it has been a long time and my only excuse is that I have been busy with my full time sculpting, that is my main work and the reason I release few figures in a year.
    I also reworked some areas, nothing at all wrong with the initial sculpt but there was some symmetry work to do on the dog and also to hide the join at the collar rather than the head, this required a mould of the dog before I could start cutting.
    The base also has had to be cut down as it was one piece and the mould would not survive many casts. This too had to be moulded and then cut down so the wall is seperate. I hope this shows I am trying to give the best piece I can as it would be easy just to stick in the rubber and to get out, a quick job but I wouldn't be happy.
    Please believe I won't be sitting on him for much longer as it is a great piece and obviously I have invested in the master so it will be coming to market.
    As said, I can only apologise and it has taught me not to show masters too soon before release :)
    All the best
