Title: Order in the production list
Post by: Mike Tango on April 07, 2016, 06:23:46 PM
Hi fellows friends of Sinthetics !

As yesterday Sinthetics wrote that they presently pour and make some dolls for those you already have completely paid, and as we are few here who are waiting since a long time, I had the idea to make a post about the following informations, just to keep us updated ! I know that we not are the only in the world to have placed an order at Sinthetics, but it will help to try to figure where we are in the list, if someone receive news about his order.

Order date :
Deposit paid :
Final balance paid :
Date that Sinthetics promised you shipping (if told) :
What you have ordered :


You can add anything that you could think or want.


So, for me :


Order date :           2015-Jan-13
Deposit paid :             2015-Jan-14
Final balance paid :    2015-Sep-01 (Exactly when they ask me for the final payment)
Date that Sinthetics promised you shipping (if told) :  Mid-october 2015
What you have ordered :
      1H, tan lines, extra full pubic hair, dolce, heavy freackles, extra larges nipples, etc.... plus 3 heads, Celestine, Yuriko, Eliza.

Holy cow. Those guys a bordering on flat out fraud. Actually, they would likely be found guilty. For anyone buying a Sin, when they request the remaining balance be paid I would demand they execute a contract that xxxx doll be completed and delivered by whatever agreed upon date. At least you would have some legal recourse.

I hate to knock these guys because they do create wonderful works of art but I'm just not that trusting to do business with them. I really hope you get your doll. I would recommend the board management here put up a buyer warning banner regarding their business practices.  Maybe that is exactly what they need to put some fire under them.

I've at least partially documented my experience in my thread (The Wait for Mandy (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=6739.0)), but I might as well add to this.

Order date: August 2, 2013
Deposit paid: August 6, 2013
Final balance paid: December 13, 2014
Date that Sinthetics promised you shipping (if told): Multiple dates over the course of 2015, then an estimate of late May to early June (see Other Info), new estimate of around September 9.
What you have ordered: Body - 2D, Peaches, Scattered Beauty Marks, Soft Inner Thighs. Head - Alicia, 3D Painted Brows, Bunny Teeth, Custom lighter application of Drama Blue
Other Info: I received the demolding pictures on June 27, 2015 and a couple in-progress (no eyebrows or lashes) pics of the head on December 3, 2015. She was technically ready to ship on April 27, 2016, however I opted to wait a month so they could rebuild the body with the new softer silicone. I finally received the demolding pictures of the new body on August 31, 2016.

I knew when I ordered that the wait for a Sin was longer than other dolls, and a 2D would be longer still (however, not quite this long).

Edited August 31, 2016

Let's keep this thread on track and not turn it into another Sinthetics bitchfest.

There are plenty of those threads already.

No need for banners. People need to do their own indepth homework before making their doll investment.

betamkii - that is kinda depressing. :(  I feel badly that it is taking so long for your girl to arrive!  This also makes me feel like my Sin orders must be a REALLY long way off since I didn't order until well over a year after your order was placed.  I hope you are part of the rumored "several" that are ready/almost ready now.

 I'm not going to go into long story here. My initial order was for a head.


Order date :10/16/2014
Deposit paid :
Final balance paid :10/16/2014
The Head (Eliza)  has been  completed. I have wore the pics out in chat.. Ask anyone in the chatroom. :whistle:

The head was finally ready to ship  09/12/2015. Being absolutely floored by the way the head turned out I immediately placed an order for the body and asked that the head be shipped with the body after it was completed to make one doll. Again. Long story. Not going into it.




Order date :09/12/2015
Deposit paid :
Final balance paid :09/26/2015
Date that Sinthetics promised you shipping (if told) :Was no set date. Was told approximate  16-20 week wait for a body 2D as per the website at the time.
What you have ordered : Body 2D

I believe the gabriel's queue is way quicker than the Body2D queue, especially at the time beta did his order. I would think that your gabriel is not too far away.

If you are getting the ears in that picture, I'm 90% sure that they are simply painted versions of YayaHan's Cat Ears.
Now you can get a collection of them in different colors to match different outfits.
All new and available for the low, low price of $16.99.
Hope this saves some strain on your wallet.
She has horns and other fun stuff too.
Good accessories for any doll.

Thanks, Poly. That's my hope too.

The 2D has had by far the longest queue for a long time. As long as you ordered anything else, aside from the 2A or 3C, I don't think your wait will be close to as long as mine.

I find it quite funny not to remember the body type you ordered.

You say you're waiting...do you send them mails or call them to know about when you will have your order started? Looks like you chose a body2D.  Good luck.

Can't remember because I bought it like a year and a half ago. Body 2D sounds right. New about the long wait so just paid the deposit and forgot about it for a long time. I've emailed them, heard nothing back. Maybe they forgot about the order, who knows. Even if I'm asked for the balance now, I'll not proceed.

Hey Funcraft-

I have been getting info from Sinthetics on the 2A. And it is all amazing good. I think I am first in line on the 2A and sounds like it should be soon. Matt even sent a wonderful email about all that has gone into her.

I will totally keep you guys posted from this end ( no pun intended, but oh boy oh boy oh boy she does have quite a lovely one from the pics! )

Best, Balc

Hi balc,

You said you think you are the first on the production list. Yet you paid for the creation of the body2A so doesn't it make you automatically the first in the production line?

Post by: balc on June 02, 2016, 07:04:55 PM
Pardonne moi mon ami!

It has been pretty busty....I mean BUSY (haha!).... here.

It's been a few years now but the folks @ Sinthetics and I talked about this doll back then and they had a similar idea. So it was a co- initiated project.

But Bronwen has been great and she, Ria, should be on her way in just days. How very exciting it is and I will post as soon as she arrives with an initial picture or 2.

Order date :            2016-06-14 (2:41pm)
Deposit paid :          $2000 (sent on June 18; received on June 23rd)
Final balance paid :  Terms of "Summer Sale" specify "Balance must be paid by June, 20, 2016," Sent to them on June 18th, processed on June 23, 2016"
Date that Sinthetics promised you shipping (if told) : none. I did order "expedited service" (I haven't seen any threads about that service yet, but I'll be away for most of July\August so with any luck he'll be waiting for me at the leasing office when I get back  :D)
What you have ordered: Male M1: "Akira" head with everything else being "standard" except the wig which is impossible to see on their "old" order page so I guessed and went with M5 (I can always order another wig if I'm not happy with it)

Note: I'll update this post when the deposit is made and once balance is paid.
Title: Re: Order in the production list
Post by: Poly on June 14, 2016, 04:41:32 PM
Hey, Akira.  Congratulations!  That is very exciting news.   :)

What skin color did you go with?

I'm wondering how expedited orders such as yours are handled or "bumped" to the front of the line (? others in the same queue or even "re-assign" completed bodies to these new expedited orders).  Sam ordered ~ 7 months after I did and you have now ordered ~18 months after my 1st male order. 

Here's a screen shot of the M5 I have in my records.  Hope that helps!  Congrats again!   :thumb:

Title: Re: Order in the production list
Post by: akira-fan on June 14, 2016, 05:52:25 PM
Skin tone was THE hardest choice I made (next to eye color which is deep blue) as Crème (like the one in the official galleries) was too light and dolce from the delivered galleries was way too dark so that left Chai, Peaches, Honey or Sugar. I decided Chai was probably too dark as well so I went with honey (which is what their Asian female dolls are).

Yes, I thought about the "line cutting" thing when I was ordering - particularly Sam (which he's naming his doll "Mark" if I recall, but I don't think hes posted in a while so for all I know he may already gotten it), but IF their website is correct than they'll only do IF they have space in the production line for it (and they wouldn't be holding a special "summer sale" if there wasn't which is really good news to EVERYONE posting here). Yes, I now how it comes off, but I was doing it as an "experiment" more than anything else as the expedited time is 10 weeks and the wait on their website is listed as around "16-20 weeks" (as everything except the wig is "standard" so processing time shouldn't be THAT big of an issue anyway).

Good luck to all of you.

Post by: akira-fan on August 19, 2016, 09:11:11 PM
This coming week will be "10 weeks" since they received my money and theoretically started my production :thumb: (the "confirmation" message I got back in June was the first and thus far only e-mail I ever got from them), BUT considering the 4 week "Bereavement closure" (not mentioned at all on ODC :o) it pushes it back to late September to early October at the absolute earliest (I'm not completely sure he's on the "10 week shipping" list, but haven't heard otherwise so I'll just assume he is  :thumb:).

I was supposed to be away in California all THIS week to be here if it arrived, but there was a screw up on the travel website so I'm leaving for vacation on Monday (not that I post enough for you to "miss" me  :laugh:). I will hopefully have plenty of photos, but most of them won't have dolls in them (equally expensive audio-animatronic figures? Yes... but they'll all their clothes on. :laugh:)

Hi Folks-

Just a quick update for y'all.

We got very close on the new doll, my Ria, making her way out here a bit ago. Matt & Bronwen have been so good- anyone else would have gone ahead and I would have been overjoyed as the new 2A pics on their website show. Definitely worth taking a look at if you haven't yet- she is drop dead gorgeous!

But they contacted me numerous times, and we decided to wait a bit longer for an even more perfect level of perfection. There is a new, 3rd generation of breast design that is even more super soft. Evidently amazing. And a few other tweaks that will be more than worth it. I personally think that Matt is the most unprecedented blend of genius, talent and devoted craftsman.

They have kept in touch even with a personal family loss and are continuing with my order and others. I will let you know as things progress as I know others are waiting on this doll also- it will be worth it, as a set of pics will prove when she arrives!

Best, Balc

 Would like to know what the third generation breast design involves. Are they completely redoing the the breast or are they just working on getting them softer? Anyhow Matt is a master and I can't wait to see the finished product....

Quick update-

Just got an email from Bronwen @ Sinthetics. My little sweetheart 2A is out of the mold and as close to perfect as can be. The pics are amazing even at this early stage in production. The word is that the newest breast design is the absolute best ever- they are sooooo realistic!

Man, these guys just keep getting better and better.....

UPDATE:I know it's been a while since I posted on this thread, but I wanted to say this is the 14th week (Thursday to be precise, not that I'm counting or anything :P) since Sinthetics said they started "construction" on my order so hopefully I should hear from them within the next few days.  :D

I am not going to dwell on the e-mails they haven't responded to yet and just hope they send me a "shipping notice" this week. I sort of doubt it given their 4 week closure, but I'm bound and determined to stay positive. If Sam could get his "Mark," :thumb: then I can get my "Akira."  :D
Title: Re: Order in the production list
Post by: akira-fan on December 11, 2016, 09:53:49 PM
It's been exactly two months since I heard from Sinthetics. I was promised my doll on October 26-28, and... I'm still waiting. Yes, I know about Matt's illness that's why I'm not more upset.

I said elsewhere on this forum if they didn't send me pics of the demolding on October 4th, I would've cancelled it and ordered the male TPE doll (lighter, easier to carry and a lot cheaper to buy).

I remain optimistic, but I am not holding out hope for a "Christmas miracle."  :( :(

I'm not going to be here for most of Christmas week, but this graphic is still distressing.

(https://scontent.ftpa1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/15590048_10154172423495667_7825990496963048802_n.png?oh=ed619e810508692c4a8a9b43df52ac47&oe=58EB9D1F)

I keep wondering if I should just cancel and order something smaller and lighter from another company ("Lorenzo" from Passion Dolls, "William" from Unique-Dolls, or even "Leo" from Doll Studio). However, they say they are making changes to how they do business going forward so maybe that'll be a good sign.

Mine is a body 2A which is currently in the production phase.  I did received word  back in October that my lady was out of the mold and in the finishing stages.  Unfortunately there has not been any recent news as to her current progress... Hopefully I'll receive an update and she will be with me soon...  :)

Hello !

Last news I had from Bronwen was in the end of December.
In January I ordered one more head (total of 4, the new one is the Eliza head).

Everything (except the last head ordered) is fully paid since Sept. 2015, at which moment my order was putted in production phase since then. My order was done in January 2015.

I wrote an email to Bronwen today (I not write her often, maybe an email at 3 months).

Wait always for some news since January 17th. It's an automatic replying message.

Have a nice day !

Mike

Between then and now, I sent two short emails on the subject....No replies.

I received news of my namesake being "demolded" on October 4th with her saying I should get it "in 3-4 weeks depending on our scheduling as we have a lot of new people." That was the last I heard from her, but the pictures she posted back in December look remarkably similar (blonde hair, fair - almost too fair - skin, deep blue eyes and a surfer boy look to him). But it wasn't him (I wish we had a more dramatic "crying" emoji).

He is paid in full. Cost EVERY penny in my bank account - plus 2.5K from a joint account with my parents (they were a tad suspicious, but I told my mom it was "Art" as she's always castizing me about "bare walls and no furniture"). If I thought I had enough for a lawyer, I would have contacted them months ago as my contract with them was for "delivery within 10 weeks of last payment" unfortunately, since it is already "in production," it is supposedly impossible to get a refund.

I'm doing my best to stay positive here, but I strongly suspect that neither I nor anyone on this thread is seeing a red cent back from them. Heck, when I was at the store this afternoon I found myself saying "that's a cute shirt for 'Ethan'[/color]" and "I bet 'Aaron' would look awesome in that outfit[/color]" ...but NOT "I should buy that for 'Akira.'[/color" I blog about abuse of the disabled, but THAT is probably the saddest thing I've written all week.  :(

It's difficult reading what you all are going through.  I went through a similar timeline before receiving my doll and sure most everyone else will agree they did as well.  As I vented frequently on this website,  I remember a number of replies stating "the wait will be worth it... you will be blown away when she arrives," etc.  None of this eased the anxiety as I waited a total of 18 months for what was advertised as a 16-18 week start to finish order.

The delays were painful and no way will I ever give excuses for a company with such a disparity in actual delivery times...

BUT!!!!!

Just wait until the day your doll arrives - it will arrive at some point even though it seems like an eternity.  But just wait until that day when that big box arrives at your door.  Just wait until you open it up and see what's inside.

I received my doll December 2015 and can assure you the day I opened that box is something I'll never forget.  She looked so real, I was just waiting for her to take a deep breath and climb out of the box!

Again - the anxiety being expressed takes me back to that excruciating wait and hope you all see a delivery come your way soon.  When you receive delivery, I look forward to reading your reactions to a truly memorable box opening!

Hang in there!

I can confirm that the visual quality of the product/art piece (depends how you view it) is amazing.

It seems incredible that it can take so long to make a doll/mannikin, the lack of communication is also unforgivable.
If Im able to get another doll new this saga and my own experiences of ordering from Sins would make me look elsewhere sadly.

I just need a realistic sex doll to f**k and take photos of , not a delicate art piece !

Hope you all get your orders filled soon.

     Mike Tango's original post was on April 07, 2016 in which he stated that he made final payment for his doll on 2015-Sep-01.

     Matt Krivicke bumped Polaroid's topic (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=8867.0) (January 18, 2017) on February 27, 2017 - about a month later to state that those two dolls had not yet been sold.

     On March 8, 2017, I posted my observation (on Polaroid's topic) that many customers have complained about slow response or no response from Sinthetics concerning their paid orders. I ribbed MattK by saying that "the shoe is on the other foot", meaning that it was his turn to wait impatiently for a response.

     Many great artists fail because they have almost no business sense. Sinthetics is a prime example of what not to do to grow a business and keep repeat customers. Perfection is an ideal for which many strive, but few can afford. Many of history's best artists, wordsmiths, and craftsmen died penniless. It is a shame that they never learned from the failures of other great artists.

Well I'm now in the same boat as Ceej as I ordered a 3C around the same time as he did.  I also know first hand about the wait for a Sinthetics Doll. It is long....Painful and the only contact you will receive from them is when they need information from you.Is there an excuse for the communication issue? Absolutely not. It is Sinthetics  S.O.P. like it or not.


Now. Here comes another but.  ;D


I did receive my order . My EJ is proof of that and she is the reason I plunked down another 5 large US for a 3C.

And after I received her. Well. I can't put it any better then Olee  did. To those of you that have ordered a Sinthetics . Hang in there. And to those of you that haven't ordered but would like one. Just make sure it's not your first doll.And be prepared to wait longer then you anticipated.Way longer. :whistle:

Some customers are still waiting for their male dolls after 3 years Akira, so don't expect to have yours any time soon. You may be disapointed. The average wait at the moment is about 3 years for a Sinthetics doll and certainly not a few weeks. I know customers who got photos of their doll demolded 2 years ago and are still waiting for the doll. It can be even longer since they recently changed their Policy for a lower production system to focus more on the Artistry of the dolls. It's best to relax and wait patiently because otherwise the wait will be tough for you.

You bought an akira doll but you don't seem very exited about its look.

The whole Sin production line and wait time reminds me of some business system called "snowball system".

It seams they nead more and more customers to fullfill there past and long overdue orders.

And when the new money didnt come there way more and more time goes by till we see new dolls.

It's a pitty since Sin's are one of the best looking dolls in the doll world imho.

I have ordered one myself if there arent such things as long waiting time, delivery issues and lately some quality and durability things....

Hope they can improve there business and will go in the "right" direction.

@grenouille
I’m aware of that, thanks (as I was the one who started that thread). I also know that a former member (who’s name I can’t remember offhand) who ordered his “off-the-shelf” “Gabriel” AFTER I did got his doll months ago. He even has a comment on their website complimenting them on their quick service.

I didn’t say he was ugly by any stretch of the imagination. I did say that I thought the color of the demolded doll was too fair and while I know he’ll be darker when he’s shipped. The surfer boy pics I posted back in December were Spice which is darker than the honey I ordered and it still looked too fair for my tastes. I probably won’t know until I see him in person…IF[/color] I see him in person.

Also, remember that neither “William” (Unique-Dolls) or “Herman\Leo” were released yet when I ordered my doll back in June so he was really the ONLY Asian male doll on the market at the time. The newer models while taller than previous models are considerably lighter than the one I ordered, except for DS line which is only a few inches shorter with a neglible difference in weight (though I dare say that if “Leo” was available at that time I would have easily ordered him – and if I have “three years” to wait, I might do so anyway just for the company :P).

It already feels like it’s not my doll anymore. I can see myself more with “William” (UD) or “Leo” lately than I do with the “Akira” that came within $300 of bankrupting me (forcing me to beg my parents for the remaining thousand for rent which was due a few days after my check was sent).

As of a blog post in January, they claim they are doing just that which is commendable. However, they have not posted any new doll photos or news about upcoming shipping dates so it is tough to judge from this point.

Do you mean this thread ? Because if yes, last time I remember, it was me. But maybe I missed a part of your message.

Anyway it could be interesting maybe to keep this thread focus on the information about the order and production list. Enough threads talk about the problems of Sinthetics and desagrements for the buyer. It was not my goal when I started this thread.

I have some news from Bronwen that I will post in few minutes.

The average wait for a sinthetics doll is 4 years or more. I am sure you will get your doll in a year or two.

I can guess, but it is not a pic of my doll. I do not know whether I can upload pics here. There are lots of bodies and heads close to completion. Maybe yours too?

If they sent you pictures at you only, keep them private to you only. The bottom of their emails have a warning concerning their communications. If it not your doll...you cannot. Or if they dont gave you authorization, you cannot diffuse the content of their emails.

I received the same email. I think my doll's replacement head is on the bottom shelf on the left (black wig). That's definitely her picture in the center of the bulletin board.

For those wondering, a large part of the email also explained how both Matt and Bronwen have been dealing with multiple bouts of illness.

They really need to do more bulk emails like that; letting all customers know what's going on so we don't flood them with individual emails asking the same question.

By the way, you have a treasure run on the website of Sinthetics, since yesterday (Dec. 31 2017), with some discount if you find the images on their website. And they have an announcement too....new head is coming !

They have an issue with the mold making. They don't know how to make them, nor have a person to do them anymore. They haven't converted a finished sculpted clay creation into a mold for YEARS. Many heads have been finished for years too and sleep on a shelf unfortunatly. That's why they are slow with the sculpting process on the body3. Even if they finish it, they can't convert it into a mold and thus a doll.

The last doll creation to be officially converted into a mold was the body 2A several years ago back in early 2015. I thought you knew that already. Many people who go to dollapallooza every year do see some finished heads who are still yet to be made into a mold. As for the mold guy he's not working at sinthetics anymore ZDr told me about a year ago. I don't know if they have a new mold person at the moment, but several people have been waiting years for they custom project (smiling alicia is one of them for instance). It's still not converted into a mold. It's been several years customers have been waiting for the 3C to be converted into a mold too. It's very painful for these people to wait, and wait and wait. I do care for them and I don't like to witness that painful wait they are living when they were promised a delay of 8 months to get their doll.

I think Grenouille has humiliated themselves enough here for the moment. ::) Moving on…

I had a dream a few nights ago in which I saw the mythical “production list” :o with all of my specifications listed there and various photos of mine and other dolls supposedly in production (though they looked like more like Chinese knock-offs, but, to be fair, those probably weren’t the finished products). Note: I saw what I thought was a male doll, but I don’t think it was my “Akira” (as he looked like more like a blow-up doll with a cheap wig than a gorgeous Sin).

As for non-dream version of him… I’ve pretty much given hope on ever seeing him.  :-[ :(

Hi, Mike. I'm about a month or so in front of you I believe and have no news. Sorry!

Hello Poly !
Thank you for the feedback.
Yeah, me too, I don't have any news. I wrote to Bronwen maybe one month ago to ask her to upgrade my finger and toe nails to the 3D Japanese art like on my current 1H that I have home. But no news. I have made an little order too, for a butt plug, ready to pay, but no email for telling me to pay since 1 month. I am a little bit worried that even for a new order, I don't have an answer.
4 years in 2 months...  :(

They have an issue with the mold making. They don't know how to make them, nor have a person to do them anymore. They haven't converted a finished sculpted clay creation into a mold for YEARS. Many heads have been finished for years too and sleep on a shelf unfortunatly. That's why they are slow with the sculpting process on the body3. Even if they finish it, they can't convert it into a mold and thus a doll.

I know your rooting for us Gren, and you want us to have our dolls soon, but not all your facts are right.....They DO know how to make molds. In fact way back in the early days, it was Matt K who taught Matt M how to make molds for full size silicone dolls.

Hello! I ordered my Gabriel doll from Sinthetics in October 2015 and it has been fully paid for since 2016.  It is a beautiful doll that I hope to receive someday soon!  I am curious if anyone else has waited almost 5 years for their doll?  Last I heard directly from the company was November 2019.  I know this year is especially challenging, but I am hopeful and I really appreciate this forum!

Hey there,

Just to give you a idea, I have ordered my first Sinthetics in Jan 2015. Fully paid in 2015 too. I have traveled from Canada to collect my Sinthetics in May 2019.

I know that other peoples waiting for their dolls actually, and one of them is waiting since around the same ordering time  than me. So you are not alone.

I can say that they trying hard to have the dolls on their back log completed.

It's a fact that this year is crazy. They cannot have employees actually, and the California State seems to be really strict on conditions. So they don't have anybody to help Matt.

The only thing that I am sure, it's that you can have confidence to have your doll. I know it's a pain to wait years and years. But you will have your doll.

I have 2 other doll orders with Sinthetics since 2019, and a custom project. Maybe paid at 80-90%. Just to show you how I have confidence in them.

I contacted them via Facebook/messenger. I asked the question if production time was 2-5 years. A person replied and said that was the old company. Is there a separate company? He basically told me wait times was 8-10 months.

I was told the waiting time for the "old company" was "9 weeks"....that was in 2016. In 2018, I contacted them and someone named Bronwen told me that "our business manager disappeared with all of our money and client data, so if you want your doll we're going to have to ask you to repay-"

FUCK YOU, >:( I paid in full and narrowly avoided bankruptcy in the process (we're talking by cents here). I know that they accepted my payment because a) it appeared as "paid in full" on the account page (which I was conveniently locked out of at the 9wk mark) and b) they sent me a picture of the demolded doll a few weeks later.

It's 2020. I'm sure they've found a new manager by now, but they've likely had to halt production (assuming they recouped enough money to tackle their backlog). Of course, their shipped products photos has been sparse well before the pandemic, so who knows. Good luck.

Has anyone recently toured the Sinthetics offices? I have a hard time believing they are still in existence.

I dunno. :-\

Their last blog post was in June, :( but the lockdowns are a boom in business for them. However, many of their current customers probably don't have steady jobs anymore so their ability to pay the most expensive sex dolls in the industry is a lot tougher :( (so expect a LOT more posts on this thread in the coming weeks). Their second problem is, assuming customers CAN somehow pay them, sex doll manufacturing isn't considered an "essential business" in California, so they've probably been sidelined work wise since March. That's an awful lot of backlog, :o but, to my knowledge, they are still taking orders - closed businesses don't answer social media questions.

The test will be next Friday when we see if they announce a "Black Friday Sale" or not. :laugh:

And I thought Sinthetics had a horrible turnaround time in 2015 when I bought my 1H.  At that time they gave an estimated 16 weeks and mine turned into 18 months.  The end result was awesome beyond words but it was the waiting and continuous deception from them that really got to me.  I'm not into all the sugar coating shit - just tell me what's happening and when I can expect to receive my doll.  The end product is beautiful but can't even imagine a multi-year wait time.  In my opinion the dolls are NOT worth the wait.  Sinthetics is not the only game in town.

Dollguy, if you have proof you paid, get a lawyer. This goes beyond 'delayed' delivery'  It's theft.

I think you are referring to MY comment.  ::)

I totally agree, it is "theft" (though I think that is too generous of a word). Not sure if a lawyer would take the case as the contract with Sin says "no refunds after production is started" and they sent photos of the doll being "demolded" (though there is no evidence that it is MY doll, other than the email being addressed to me).

Even 18 months is stretching it, but I'm impatient like that. I was not impressed with their excuses "our manager left" or "we can't find anyone willing to work on sex dolls" (I find hard to believe as there are hundreds of artists waiting tables in LA area). Just tell me, am I getting it or not. At this point, I'm guessing not.

Unfortunately, if you want an AMERICAN MADE doll (like I did), then Sin or Real Doll ARE the "only game in town." I have nothing against RD, I just don't trust duopolies.

So are sinthetics still open? I am interested in ordering a gabriel from them soon. I am not not so sure. How have others found them?

Hello Wildflowerhoney.  Sinthetics is supposedly still open, but keep in mind that they no longer consider themselves a "Production"
type business. They consider themselves as an art studio type business which means you could be in for a long wait for your doll,
especially if it's a special request or a new product being created like the Body B3C that is way overdue for release (6 years and
still waiting...).

The best way to get a hold of them is by social media. They especially use Twitter, Instagram, & Facebook. They basically do
everything by smartphone which could be the reason why their online website(s) don't get updated very often.

Good luck with your order and hope all goes well.

Take care. litlluvr with his dolls Yoshe, Amiko, Marla, Michiko, & Yuna.

Thank you for the replies. I will give them a message. Want to order a few skin samples and a dildo before I take the plunge. They produce amazing work. :)

Oh, Akira-fan. You needn't worry about me. I've done my research and soon Aaron will have a brother to compete for my affections. One thing for sure. I have chosen a company that delivers real product over false hopes and long waits.

I'm not even that interested in getting a new housemate and "might" keep this new guy in storage, but the money fell into my lap and as they say, "A fool and his money are soon parted."

Wait ... I guess that makes me the fool.

Seriously .. I actually had 3 Cadillacs , a Corvette, and a Ferrari maintained by one of those "Artists
mechanics". Wound up selling everything and getting an eyeturner of a convertible cause I was sick of begging to have a car ready for exhibition. I wound up having that car featured in a couple of independent films. It's better to drive than walk,

Boy oh boy. Sorry to hear of all your troubles. Getting screwed online is not as fun as it sounds.
   And the prospect of hiring a lawyer? He will want 30% of what you already haven’t gotten. If not 50%.
    I wish I had answers for you, maybe a suggestion? There are domestic (USA) retailers that sell quality TPE, if you are not dead set on silicone.
    18 months is a long time to wait for anything. Good luck.
