Can u imagine the old gen 2 assembly line. The various conveyor belts going by with different pieces of modular segmented synth body plating on them, and there's the one belt that whizzes along full of nothing but row after row of tummy plates with cute little bellybutton dimples in the middle of them.
Thanks to you, 2014 was a great year for Volante Design! Over the course of the year we have built a solid foundation, and now we’re focusing on broadening our design portfolio. We’ve been hinting over the last few weeks at big plans for the upcoming year, so we are excited to finally give you more insight into our 2015 program.
In 2014 we released 10 new products. We intend to release more than double that number this year. We will be developing new garment types such as shirts, vests, pants, and gear. We are also going to offer entire outfits as well as designs with modular elements. These pieces will compliment a Volante Design jacket you already own. We’re also working hard on getting new apparel licenses by the end of the year so that we can bring to life more awesome characters like last year’s MegaJacket. Some of the designs on our agenda were sketched long before Volante Design was even dreamt of, while others only exist as concepts and ideas.
As we want to increase the selection of our products, while continuing to maintain and improve the quality we strive to deliver in our products and in our service to you, we need to make some changes. We will be streamlining the multitude of color options we’ve offered for each product in the past and begin to offer a smaller selection of more refined colorways based on what we feel best compliments each design. This will help us to focus our efforts on creating unique new designs. We feel that this choice will offer expanded and practical ways of fulfilling our promise to you– to create a world of fashion where ordinary people can feel extraordinary.
Without further ado, we are pleased to present a first look at what the year will bring:

PAXEast - TBD
C2E2 - TBD
OttowaCC - TBD
BaltimoreCC - TBD
MontrealCC - TBD
TD;DR Version: Hold onto your socks because that’s one of the few things we won’t be adding to our selection. 2015 is going to be awesome.
