    My funds are still quite low I haven't sold any pre-orders so far this year, so I'm using whatever money I can spare. The work is moving along a little faster now that I bought a new CNC mill. I haven't set a firm release date. But I hope to start shipping this quarter.

    For more consistent updates, please follow the Facebook page. I'm trying to do better with updates, and that's where most of them will be first. Also, not everyone who's ordered a Satchel has joined the Cold Constructs Test Program group. Remember if you ordered a Satchel before Christmas last year, you're entitled to some free prototype figures, all you have to do is join the group by confirming your purchase.

    I'd rather you get it done right, than get it done quickly.

    The more MP Unicron Trilogy figures the better. Gonna pre-order this guy once I finally have the money. Looks like my Galaxy Meteor won't have to be lonely anymore lol.

    Is the CNC mill the "official update" discussed earlier or is there more news to be on the lookout for?

    Was planning on more, but sadly that's all I got for the weekend. The milling is taking longer than I expected.

    I'm not touching facebook so unfortunately no test program for me. I do like the look of saber though.

    He said he had one prepped for TFCon back in July, but his computer fucked off so he couldn't. I agree though, I'm dying to know anything more

    I got my money back before my PP coverage expired. Got tired of the "can't produce it yet but heres this mini figure, or this mini figure".

    Seems like this project died before it ever got off the ground. :( 

    considering the character and the line it came from. It's no surprise.

    There's still a crap ton of G1 characters out there that need 3p toys as well that Nobody seems to want to touch so we can finally complete our G1 MP Collections. but... oh well it's cool I guess.

    Good luck on finally getting this out. (whenever it comes) I wish it success. I truly do.

    Then maybe you can move on to far more known and established characters, from far more popular Series? :)

    Never used PP, but I've considered getting my own refund.

    I don't think it's the series that killed it, it's the company. This guy is brand new, has no real base. Let's wait until FansHobby's Armada Prime to decide on the "It isn't G1" verdict

    Fuck this guy. I would get excited every update until they stopped. He updated right before the 6th month mark. I tried to get a refund from PayPal, but it was after that 6 month cutoff. He offered refunds, then said he didn’t have the money. There may have been good intentions initially, but that dwindled over time and expenditures with nothing to show for it.

    A month later, still waiting on a refund.

    I wasn't expecting this to come out in the given timeframe but I also wasn't expecting Nato to just run off with everyone's money. :/

    Hey guys, I'm sorry for all of the delays.

    The honest truth is that I took a lot of time off from my other job as a concept designer/ prop maker to do this project. It didn't pan out. Long story short is I haven't had any money coming in at all (from any source) since December. I've been trying to do what I can to get stuff out, but none of the subsequent projects I've tried have sold anything, and it's very hard to make product if I can't buy materials.

    I've been trying to get work for a some time, but the film group I usually work with hasn't had anything for me to do recently. They are starting a new film project within the next month, and I'm doing some concept and prop work for them now. I hope to start getting paid for that soon. I'll start issuing refunds to people who want them as soon as I am able. I'm going to try my best to get things going again as soon as I can, but I must say things aren't looking good for Satchel.

    I'm very sorry for all of the delays and any hurt feelings I may have caused any of you.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding,
    -Nate
