Bad News About The Bluebox Elves v. Orcs Set

I recently got some bad news about the Bluebox Elves v. Orcs set that I have been eagerly anticipating for the last several months.  My friend Joseph Svec got in touch with someone at the company and learned that it is not going to be produced.   Joseph sent me the email blow about a week ago, but I have been so busy that I just read it today.


Greetings Shaun,

I looked up the contact information of Blue Box USA to inquire regarding the status of the 54mm Orcs & Elves figure set shown at Toy Fair last year, and the response was,  "the Orc / Elves set did not go into production for 2016 and we have no plans to produce this in the future."

I asked if one could purchase test samples or prototype figures and mentioned that I had heard that some sets had been produced, and received the below reply.

"Sorry - proto types are not for sale.  We'll show them again at future
events.
We definitely did not produce any live product."

That is disappointing, as I think based on the photos I saw, they were the best new fantasy figures I have seen in ages in ages.

I thought you would want to know.

I hope all else is well,
Joseph



So, it is still possible that it will be produced someday, but don't hold your breath.
