In order to help Roman’s family as much as possible Coarse have decided to not limit this release. The preorder will remain open for 72 hours. Coarse Toys sure know how to operate. As previously reported, proceeds from the Omen Fade sale will be donated to Roman’s wife & family, which is a great gesture from Coarse and they should be highly commened for this.
Orders will ship late 2015.
We have previously covered the Omen Fade HERE, if you’d like to read. The Toy Chronicle met with Roman whilst he was in the UK for ToyCon UK. Roman was one of the most genuine guys we have ever met. A real solid guy. We thank Coarse for producing this great memorial for Roman. Something that Roman would have definitely loved himself.
We personally wrote a article months before Roman’s left us if you would like to remember how much of an awesome person he was and a pleasure to meet, please have a read HERE
