MCNStore Update - Silver Items Now Availableby armothe (MCN News)
Silver is in this season!
As we continue to run out of dark-gray items we thought it would be a nice treat to forge some new weapons for all the warlords and warladies out there looking to equip their masses (okay, okay - maybe this was just an excuse for the artisans to play around with colors a bit). Never-the-less silver stockpiles have been uncovered and are shipping now through the MCNStore. We are quite pleased at how the silver turned out, but did notice that silver-flake tends to accentuate inherent flaws in the mold - more commonly known as "flashes". Still, we don't think you will be disappointed!

Because we've finalized the transition from RedBean Studio to MCNStore you'll note that our stock of items has greatly increased. This has allowed us to reduce some prices on certain items. With Dark Gray quantities diminishing - now is the time to pick them up. Keep in mind that once an item (color) sells out, it is for all intents and purposes; discontinued.
We continue to work for a more customer-friendly shopping cart with the hopes of integrating it into the MCN community website. Please bear with us as this venture is fairly new and for now - remains purely a part-time hobby. Rest assured that most (99.9%) of the sales collected over the past three months we've been in business has and is currently going to the development of some new ground-breaking minifig accessories. Check back here for further monthly updates and announcements.

Minimates X-men: Darktideby Redbean (Contruction Bricks)
Ok, they're not exactly minifig compatible, but mini-mates are neat and this DVD movie happens to be something which is very well-done and interesting. So do check out the trailer by clicking on the image if you have time:
Updateby Redbean (MCN News)
First of all, I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize for having been absent from this community for so long, as well as to assure those with a sensitive soul that I am indeed well and have no intention of forsaking the customization world in the foreseeable future.
The truth, however, is that I have been away for too long and I don't deny that... but at least I have good reasons for doing so. Firstly, my real life job had lately been taking a great toll on me, which unfortunately translates to having less time to spend online. Until this sorts itself out probably in two months or so, my presence will likely continue to be limited.
Secondly, and this may be good news to most of you, in order to provide better services in regards to the sales of my custom accessories, I have been working closely with armothe to relocate my distribution hub to the US. I am happy to annouce that Red Bean Studio has now finally and officially arrived in America. This means shipping rates will be much cheaper and US checks will be accepted from now on. The URL of the new shop is located here, but visiting us at the old address will re-direct you there also. Please continue to support us in the future.
So as you can see, my absence is not totally inexcusable. However, just to show that I haven't at all forsaked the art of customization, I have just uploaded my latest Sabertooth figure (with an all-new custom hairpiece) to show that I still enjoy doing what I do best. Comments, as usual, are welcomed.
And lastly, a big round of applaud should go to Ramus for updating our server and fixing the speed issue which had been troubling us for so long. Thank you for not forsaking us during that difficult period of time. As I understand, more changes (positive ones) are going to come for MCN in the future, I hope we will all stick around to enjoy the future of MCN as well as the art of customization.
See you all around!!
