Many of our customers are keen to know what has become of our line of Penny Dreadful 1:6 Scale Collectors Figures. Like so many fans it came as much of a surprise to us when season three came to somewhat of an abrupt end. Penny Dreadful was one of the most original and exciting shows on TV and so when it was announced that there would be no more seasons, we were forced to re-think our plans for our proposed products. With so many great TV shows to choose from, when one comes to an end so too does the rabid fandom that follows and surrounds it.
The design, development and manufacture of sixth scale figures in particular is an expensive undertaking for any company, even more so if the production run is reduced to a low volume. For a line to be viable there must be enough interest to even consider it a possibility. With the lack of any new seasons of Penny Dreadful, we were simply not convinced that there would be sufficient interest for us to proceed.
It was particularly frustrating for us as we had developed six stunning costumes for the main characters from the show, with more or less completed prototypes of the principle characters Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) and Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett).
We have discussed the situation with CBS who have kindly agreed to allow us to run a sign up for the first two figures. Should there prove to be sufficient interest from fans, then we can proceed to pre-order. Please note that we are looking for genuine interest from customers who would intend to pre-order. We would kindly ask those who only have a passing interest not to sign up when the page goes live. This will help us to determine whether or not we will proceed.
We thank you for your interest in Penny Dreadful and we truly hope that our figures will see their way into fans’ hands.
