Product Release Delay Due to Planned Power Outages: Notice & Apology

2021/09/30

Thank you for your continued support of Good Smile Company products.

We regret to announce it has been determined that the release schedule for certain products from Good Smile Company, Good Smile Arts Shanghai, and Max Factory will be postponed due to the planned power outages currently occuring in China.

Certain factories that manufacture our products are scheduled to have hours of operation limited by the planned power outages in China, and we unfortunately expect a significant delay in the production process of certain products as a result.

We are currently re-adjusting the production schedule, but as the frequency and duration of the power outages is not yet clear, we are not currently able to determine the extent of products that will be affected. As soon as a list of delays can be determined, we will post an additional update.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our customers. We will continue to strive to develop and manufacture the best possible products, and ask for your understanding in this matter.

  • Good Smile Company
  • Good Smile Arts Shanghai
  • Max Factory
