Attention Modelers, Readers and Subscribers of Amazing Figure Modeler magazine-
As you are well aware, COVID-19 is currently wreaking havoc with our lives, our economy and businesses. Unfortunately, Amazing Figure Modeler magazine is not immune to the troubles caused by the pandemic. As we were going to press, we received notice that all newsstand distribution would be halted for the foreseeable future. Luckily, we could adjust our numbers and avoid catastrophe. While we feel that AFM is essential, the Federal Government does not! This leads us to say something we never expected to say, and that is, for the first time since Issue Two, AFM will not appear on the newsstand or in bookstore chains such as Barnes and Noble. We’re not going to lie, it’s an unfortunate blow for our business, but we are so grateful for the loyalty of our subscribers and readership; we will weather this together.
What does this mean for you?
If you subscribe, your issue is on its way! Our trusty printer is mailing them as you read this. If you purchase AFM at your local comic shop, there will be a delay in shipping. Diamond Comics has temporarily stopped distribution of new comics and magazines until it is safe for warehouse workers to rejoin the workforce. Our Diamond order will ship at some point, we just do not know when. If you purchase AFM at a bookstore chain or newsstand, Issue 69 will not be on the shelves.
Now here is the much needed good news…you can purchase AFM directly from our website! No need to stand six feet away as you hit “Buy Now” on your computer--you’re safe with us! Just visit amazingfiguremodeler.com and order the new issue of AFM, it’s as simple as that; no gloves or hand sanitizer required!
What does all this mean for us?
It means we’re going to make many trips to the post office! With the virus being such a problem, we’ll probably only go once or twice a week to handle the mailing, so please bear with us as we deal with online orders.
Please help us get the word out that AFM is open and ready to ship our latest issue; feel free to share this message on model forums and social media so that everyone who wants AFM can get it!
These are uncertain and troubling times… we at AFM hope that you and your families and loved ones stay safe and healthy. We’re all in this together, and together we’ll overcome this. If you’re stuck inside with little to do, why not get creative and build or paint something? We happen to know a magazine that can help you out with that!
Thank you for your years of support; we’ll see you later this summer for a very special issue of AFM- our Reader’s Choice contest winners!
A Special Note:
The first batch of online orders will not ship until approximately April 10th; we are trying to batch the orders and keep traveling to the post office to a minimum.
