Shipping Update April 2020

For those waiting on their shipment of the UV Explorer Newsletter One, we have been informed that international shipments are experiencing delays and in some cases have halted shipments until further notice for most major countries due to the virus.

We will be keeping an eye on the situation as things progress and will resend any returned shipments and/or replacements if necessary when things open back up.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

第一期 UV Explorer 物流进度更新
2020年 4月

非常感谢大家对UV Explore的热情支持,因疫情影响,导致了国际物流运输延误,并出现部分国家的物流服务被迫暂停的情况,我们深表歉意。恢复时间需等待收件国家另行通知,我们也会密切关注物流进展。对部分退回期刊,我们将在物流恢复后为您重新派送。再次感谢您的耐心和理解!

UV MARCH UPDATE

For the safety and well-being of our team and to help prevent any possible risk of infection to others and ourselves, we will be canceling our planned appearance at the upcoming Thailand Toy Expo. We have nothing but love for Jeep and his crew that put on such an excellent show and we’re sad we won’t be able to make it out this time. 

COVID-19 is a real bastard and we, like many others, are experiencing delays and will be adapting to the situation as things progress and change on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this too has affected our planned pre-orders and production estimates. We will have our first sale of 10” Ashtro Lad and Rocket Ashtro in April! 

To all our fans – please stay healthy, stay inside unless it’s an emergency, and stay tuned for more UV updates! 
– Team UV 

出于健康安全考虑,为了减少人群聚集活动,避免新型冠状病毒的传播,我们将正式取消原TTE泰国玩具展的品牌亮相计划。在此感谢JEEP及其团队举办了如此精彩的活动,我们对此次未能出席深表遗憾。

COVID-19是一次全人类的灾难。跟大家一样,我们的计划不断被延迟,并针对这些突发情况不得不做出新的调整,这也影响了我们的新品发售计划和生产周期。

同时,在这里也为大家带来了一则好消息,UNDERVERSE首款产品 10” Ashtro Lad 和火箭版 Ashtro预计将在4月开启预售!大家准备好了吗?!

致所有UV玩家朋友们,疫情期间,请大家注重健康,尽量减少外出,保护好自己。

此致,
UV团队

UV Explorer One is Sold Out! Newsletter Q+A

The first UV EXPLORER officially launched yesterday. Thank you so much for all your support! Up to now, we have sold out of the 200 limited print editions of the newsletter. To answer some of the questions that popped up:

Q: How to confirm whether the order has been placed successfully?
A: The order has been successfully processed if you reached the following page. Only one copy provided for each member. The repeated orders will be canceled automatically.

Q: Why is there no payment options available? / Why the order shows up under my account, but just says pay later?
A: The payment system is still under construction and payment options like Paypal will be available in the future. Chinese fans, we are still looking for solutions to include Alipay. Please give us some time and thanks for your patience. 

Q: Why it shows “order received” but I haven’t received any email?
A: Confirmation emails will be sent out shortly. Please check your mailbox and spam box later this week.

Q: Will there be a bilingual system in the future?
A: The website is still under construction and yes, we will support the bilingual system (English and Chinese). Please stay tuned.

Q:When will the next newsletter be launched?
A:Any time within the next month (Haven’t got a specific date yet). Registered members can look forward to some new teasers in the second issue.

We want to apologize here officially for any inconvenience caused during the newsletter launch. An overwhelming amount of fans placing placing orders at the same time, caused congestion to our servers and many experienced errors and slow loading time. In response to this we will be covering the cost of the global freight for all the fans who placed their orders for the newsletter successfully. 

The pre-order for the first product is planned to be launched this month! Please stay tuned and feel free to contact us with any inquiries you may have via info@underverse.com

Thank you again for your love and support of UV!

WELCOME TO UV

Hi,

Welcome to the first, of which I hope to be many Underverse chats, where I’ll speak on things coming up and things from the past (3A and other ventures when applicable)!

I would like to announce UNDERVERSE! I know it’s already out there, but it seems fitting to say here, my new Home for Toys, and much more! But I’ll focus on the toys for this entry!

So, UV will be making and releasing all my toys from now on, and when I say toys, I mean 1/6th, 1/12th, Vinyl, poseable figures, resin statues and everything in-between. I have many paths I want to take and really hope you all will join me. 

I’ll be bringing back all my IP such as WWR, Adventure Kartel, Popbot with the Tomorrow Kings and so on, but also new worlds and lines.

I’ll be doing what I have done for nearly 30 years – designing them, painting art, drawing decals, being directly involved on the front line, this isn’t a phoned-in job just slapping my name on stuff. I’m very lucky to have been joined for this battle  by my friends from 3A; Siuyin, Gregory Prout, and Jacky Chu are all here at my side covering my ass 🙂 On the flip side I’m joined by new friends at UV, who bring unique and wonderful talents to the stable, you will meet them all soon!

Today I’m working on two WWR2 1/6th figures, Neu Square2 and the Nomad Nom, and some TK comics. Oh yea, and the first Dinner Guest – Gentleman V…. You guys will see all this very soon.

I’ll see you guys soon

Swimming around in the Underverse

朋友们,

这是我们第一次对话。相信未来在Underverse,会有更多这样的机会聊天。我会在这里分享最新的发布,也会讲述过去的故事(合适的时候也会讲讲3A还有一些其他的冒险故事)!

在这里,我宣布 —  UNDERVERSE诞生了!虽然品牌已经有所露出,但在这里正式公布似乎是最适当的方式。这是我的新家。我会在这里创造玩具和更多的作品!但这里的重心还是——玩具!

所以从现在起,将由UV生产和发布我所有的玩具,包括1/6、1/12、搪胶、雕塑及其他综合型玩具。这是一条漫漫长路,期待与你们并肩。

我带回了WWR、AK、POPBOT,TK等我所有的IP,同时也会有新的世界和新的产品线推出。

这些玩具作品是我全心投入了近30年的成果。亲自做设计,绘制贴纸标签,直接参与到生产线。这些事情不是靠电话沟通就能完成的,这些心血也不是只打上了我的名字的商品。而我深感荣幸的是,在这场战斗中,有来自前3A的朋友们跟我一起并肩作战,他们是Siuyin, Gregory Prout和Jacky Chu。这些同伴都在身边一直支持我:)同时,也有新的朋友加入了UV。他们的到来为UV增添了更多精彩。你们很快就会见到他们的!

此时此刻,我正忙于两个1/6的 WWR2 人偶,Neu Square2和Nomad Nom,还有一些TK的漫画。

哦对了,还有我们第一位盛宴的客人- V先生… 这所有的一切都将很快面世。

回见。

DIFFERENT LABEL, SAME BAND!

I remember years ago when I first wrote of the Underverse in Popbot – I thought I want to play there; a milky space where Warhol is doing time… that’s a cool place.

And here I am, about to set off into the milky depth – to see what we can find, what adventure we can spank!

The label might be different, but the band is the same, we hope you can join us on this new outing; to make some fun toys, to publish some fun books and comics, to make a fun film – that’s our Underverse!
