Hello hello everyone.

I know a lot of you have been awaiting some info from us, so low and behold here it is.

None of our intentions have changed for our upcoming releases (Billy Bananas, Thundermutts etc.), it's just taken a long long time. We've always followed through on our word and always will - but when things take a long time, I know it makes people angry, impatient and all of that. So I formally and sincerely apologize for the inconveniences our delays have caused. We love all of you guys and love making toys and don't ever want that to change. Plus, we're not going anywhere so don't expect us to fall off the face of the earth or not come through on our end of the bargain.

That being said, we have had some pretty hard luck with our toy production over the last 1.5 years - delays, factory errors etc. and it's taken some time to recover, regroup and re-energize. Last year basically SUCKED for us on many accounts. But things have been kick *ss internally for Tdog this year and our ducks are auspiciously in a row and we're psyched to finally come through with the goods.

First: BILLY BANANAS

I'm sooo happy to hear all the great feedback, I love this little guy and can't wait to get him here.
Our factory is shooting to deliver them for SDCC (fingers crossed). There will also be a New York release.
And, they are NOT blind boxed. There are 5 colorways, 300 pcs of each - yet there are BLIND accessories.
There are 3 accessories (40oz, Dice and Anvil). 300 pcs of each accessory, randomly assorted through out the total run of 1500pcs.

There will be another Glow edition exclusive to ToyQube (and yes it will glow!). The details of which are being worked out now and will hopefully be available at the same time as the rest. For those of you who bought the original 'psyche' glow, Toyqube and I will announce the terms soon. It will be discounted for you with extra goodies and well worth your wait. Please stay tuned for the final info on this. (Also, to clarify - the original factory error was not ToyQube's responsibility, and fingers shouldn't be pointed at them. They've been awesome in this process and we're working together to make everyone happy campers.)

Second: THUNDERMUTT & THE MUTT CLUB!

Lots of goodness to report here. Thanks again to all the MUTT CLUBBERS who have been so patient, I know it's been a long while. The next batch of MUTTS (Black and Silver 14.5 and the MUTT CLUB EXCLUSIVE Black & Silver FILTH MUTT) - is scheduled to arrive mid-May.

This whole series will have some awesome, chase, hand made artworks hidden in the heads. Yet MUTT CLUBBERS will bet getting full sets with all hidden items, Plus an extra item only found inside the FILTH MUTT.

And, for your amazing patience Thunderdog will be giving all MUTT CLUB members this whole set of 5 - Free of Charge - plus the bonus goodies. Including shipping god damn it. This is the least we can do and again, my sincere apologies for the delay.

THUNDERMUTT 3.0 is also in queue for production, I assume we'll have our hands on it end of summer, which would be great. Each one comes with a numbered, metal silk screen print.

All I ask, is that you keep your eyes on your mail boxes and 'believe it when you see it'.

Anyway, that's the majority of the info I have for now. I can't help the fact that some of you are pissed off at the delays, but we're coming through on our promises as best as possible and doing the best we can! Thanks to all of you who have been so kind and patient with us.

I'll be on line for the next few hours to answer any questions...and for all the haters out there...flame on!

Big up!

BIG TRIS.

Thanks. We are guilty of being a little too quite on the radio frequency from time to time for sure...small team = work overload = communication delays. We're working on it!

i have been faithful to the mutts since day 1!!!

once i saw the reason the mutts were delayed, i was ok with waiting. PLUS, our membership was extended, so i always figured, tristan was going to come thru.

and then they hit the HOMERUN with this news!

its gonna be awesome. i LOVE the mutts.

and i will be joining again, if they have another round of memberships.

Hmmm.

The only MUTT party I've thought about was maybe doing something in Portland with FILTH (who just moved there).

Could be cool!
