    Actually they are put together very well.
    We also weld in gussets in all the angles now.
    And I really wish you would have emailed this to me when it happened. It helps us make constant improvements to our products. And that is the only way we can help you.
    Which you know we always do.

    40 psi is the proper operating procedure.

    Did you make any adjustments to the flow control exhaust valves?
    We set them at the proper operating speed. But somehow they adjust themselves in or out sometimes and other times the customer readjusts them.
    So, please check the others. They do not need to move fast to look good. And this puts unneeded stress on the armatures.
    Do you need us to send you any gussets or anything to make the repairs?

    Awesome,
    OUr business is not built on selling you something. It is built on servicing what we sell.
    SO if you ever need anything please do not hesitate to ask.
    We are ALL over this.

    I would love to see some pics of your install of our beasts sometime

    man i am soo sorry for this but...please dont go edit that..cause

    seriously...your business is not built on sellin but servicing what u sell ???

    heres a thought...

    maybe all haunt vendors should build their business on selling product that doesn't need serviced....

    LOL
    I know what you are saying. BUT
    What is sad is I try to be supportive and help you solve a problem, and here you are trying to twist my words and intent.

    So no thanks.
    Im out.

    But again, if you need anything, please just let us know.

    Kevin..

    i knew thats how u would feel..sorry...some conversations aren't for a forum..
    and are easily misinterpreted...and i am a sarcastic ass..me admitting that doesn't solve it..
    but to me... what u said was funny
    i know u are an upstanding member of this community and dont run from problems..
    like some other vendors do..
    the thing about building animatronics
    is its a learning curve..hence gussets have been added..i am not sore in the slightest..
    i have spent 35 grand on animations and welded on them every single weekend all season long..
    and even in that situation..i understand that some things just cant be figured out til its in operation and taking on abuse..
    i looked at those heads before they were installed and looked built like brick out houses...
    i hope no hard feelings.....i know u stand behind your product...just like all passionate people do..
    again sorry for the sarcasm
    on another note..this post has 10,666 views...must be a sign

    Thank you!
    I so very much appreciate you seeing that we do build animatronics and giant costumes to take a beating, and knowing I and my company are here for the long haul.
    thank you for basically posting for me, what I was going to respond with.
    But I decided to take the high road and not respond with hurt feelings and say something I would regret.
    Sadly, it is just so hard to see the intent or humor in writing.
    But like I said, I do get where you are coming from.
    I can't speak for vendors in general, but we build everything the best we think they can be built.
    And like you said, we also improve as we go, so we now add gussets at all the joints.

    thanks again,

    I just have to say I went to the Hoochie on Sat. And I was blown away.
    There queueline is huge because it has to be. I bet there were an easy 500 people in line. We hung out and talked with the crew till about 1am, and the line stayed that way all night long
    So they had to have run 2000 that night alone.

    The level of detail is over the top. Tim and his crew do not build things like a theatrical set so it "LOOKS" real.
    They build them and they are real. what I mean is if you see a rock wall, it is not vacuform. It is a REAL rock wall. And that is how they do everything.
    And the sets were very cohesive.

    You can tell the actor's love it. Lots of high energy. and they read the customer. And would respond based on that read.

    Of course it is all very over the top.

    If you get a chance, you should check it out. You won't be disappointed.

    Thanks TIM,
    I really appreciate the hoochie treatment.
