One year after launching the Ikigai by Tsume range, we are happy to see that it has met its audience and is already embellishing the collections of many enthusiasts.
If we learned a lot of positive things from these first releases, we also questioned ourselves. To help us in this process, we have taken into consideration the collectors’ opinions and feedback on the first products in the Ikigai range. This has allowed us to work on areas for improvement to positively develop the range and optimize its concept so that it best meets your expectations.
Indeed, we were able to observe that offering two different versions of the same product, Regular and Ultimate, distributed randomly did not suit all collectors, many also deploring not being able to discover the design of their statue until they received it. To rectify this, we have decided that from the release of Natsu-Ikigai, the statues will be offered in a single version that is the most complete and the best possible in our eyes. There will therefore no longer be an Ultimate or Regular distinction in the Ikigai range. The certificates of authenticity will now have an iridescent finish while the numbered tokens will have a silvery colour. All customers will thus benefit from an identical offer guaranteeing them to acquire the best existing product, so that all collectors are sure to receive a statue that meets their expectations, requirements and hopes.
Regarding the print run announcement, it will now take place when pre-orders open. Thus, by pre-ordering your statue, you will immediately know the print of the latter, without having to wait for the sold out. In addition, the print runs will now be more limited, these two criteria being of significant importance for collectors.
As indicated, the changes cited above will be applicable from the release of Natsu – Ikigai and those to come, and therefore do not affect the Ikigai statues released for pre-order before that.
