It is rare that I agree so completely with every point made in a comment but here we have it. I am fine with InArt's decision not to crank out dozens of figures every year in an attempt to keep up with HT's output; I'll take high quality and a measured pace every time (and my wallet will be all the happier for it). And I'm glad to see them working with licenses that are not SW and Marvel.They’re almost 4 months into the slow roll out of the Joker so all order must nearly every fulfilled.
InArt are still a pretty small operation from what I’ve heard so they wont be giving us a dozen+ figures a year for a long time if ever.
I couldn’t hope to keep up with InArt if they were announcing figures at the pace of HT but one new deluxe set PO every 3 months would be financially tolerable and help keep the hype alive. I just don’t think they have the production side of things figured out- especially with the hairing of heads- to meet that thpe of schedule.
I believe they massively overestimated their capabilities at the start and the reality of mass production has hit them hard and altered their plans. I expect that teased Wringwraith to be off the table for a while because it’s simply not interesting enough to be worthy of taking up months of production time.
I also wouldn’t call Harry Potter a weird announcement; HP is a huge global franchise with a ton of adult fans and characters to mine and no decent competition in the figure realm.
They’ll be looking to show a variety of licenses/properties and a range of characters in their early days- and, by God, they should. Aren’t we all bored of HT’s endless cycle of Trooper, Mandalorian, Iron Man, Spider-Man, something 2.0, repeat at this point?
