I'll try to keep this as brief as possible as there is a lot to fit in. We hope you and your family are keeping well and staying sane - can't believe we are entering week 5 of the lockdown!
We are still super busy and in the middle of moving premises, but thankfully only next door, so thank you for understanding if we can't respond to calls and emails as fast as usual. Orders continue to be shipped as normal.
GRAF ZEPPLIN LIMITED EDITION SETS
Congratulations if you were one of the lucky people to have their name picked to reserve one of ten sets. They are due for release at the end of April, so I will invoice you once we know they are on their way from Poland. The standard version will be in plentiful supply and will be released in May:
Thanks to customer feedback, we are now using a bright red 'Pre-order Me' button to make it clearer when you are pre-ordering a set - please also check the product description to find out when a set is due in stock - I update these as soon as COBI informs us of a change. There were some teething issues with the new buttons last week, but hopefully we've resolved them now. So sorry, if you thought you had ordered a set only to find out it was actually a pre-order, and not due in stock for a while. If in doubt, please email email@example.com and we can check the status of your order for you.
DELAYED SET RELEASES
COBI informed us this week that unfortunately the following sets will be released later than expected:
PLEASE NOTE: If you are unsure of when a pre-ordered set is due for release, please check individual product pages for updates.
SPARE PARTS & WEAPONS
Feel free to check out our new COBI Spare Parts and Weapons collections! Believe me, when all the bits and pieces arrived last week along with three pallets of COBI sets, Neil was cursing my name! So huge thanks to him for the sterling effort of sorting, organising and listing all the items on the website.
Supplying spares is an experiment for us so please let us know any feedback and if we can, we will continue to order spare parts from COBI for you so you don't have to pay the high shipping costs.
If you requested parts from us a few weeks ago, hopefully we now have them in stock (if they were available on the COBI website) so please feel free to order what you need.
ARRIVING NEXT WEEK:
SOLD OUT BUT BACK IN STOCK BY THIS WEDNESDAY
'NEW TO US' YOUNGTIMER SETS
On customer request, we are expanding our selection of Youngtimers brick car sets also due in stock by this Wednesday:
Phew - that was a long update so thank you for sticking with me if you got this far!
Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07875587998 and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Take care and thank you for your support
Zoë & the team
