      Just got mine today here in Malaysia. So far so good. Lucky I have a international adapter. Will let you guys know if I come across any issues

    2. Henrik C on January 27, 2014

      Oh also... Apparently mine is suffering from ghost coins as well. Left it pugged in over night which turned out to be a bad idea. Either ghost Mario is haunting me or the sensor has some issues.

      Maybe future eventual revisions could have a volume button with a mute mode...?

    3. Henrik C on January 26, 2014

      This could have been so awesome but oooh boy what a disappointment. There's some fundamental design issues with it that I can't believe got through design phase. =/

      * It's yellow and not orange. Even in the videos and material it shows up mostly orange, sometimes yellow.

      * The sound is off pitch and not true to the original coins sound. Not sure, but I think it's a bit long as well?

      * You can't power hit it since there's a fixed non interruptible length of the sound.

      * The question mark is on the inside and it looks all blurry/defocused and odd. Not at all like a question block we've all learned to love.

      * Power adapter shipped to EU is a US one. You could have saved yourself a few bucks and don't ship that one at all since most of us will throw it away.

      I loved the idea but not the final product. =/

      Got mine this morning. The only thing is that I have trouble putting the stand together, the paint is too thick? Will look at it again later. Tested it using my phone charger adapter and works though the sound is a little too sharp. Will comment more once I have it up and together.

      Mine turned on by itself last week. It did it again today, and then it would not turn off. I unplugged it and replugged it and it seemed to be working again. And then when I left the room it started turning itself on and off several times. It now seems to be working normally again.

      @Chris same problem, my lamp arrived today and works on my laptop or even a powerbank (2A).
      It fails to work with any of my 5 USB-Adapters for the wall outlet.

      Hi, my lamp arrived 2 weeks ago. This weekend we tried to hang it up, but it keeps beeping (and going on/off), as if the distance sensor spews out random noise. When pressing a finger to the hole it stopped. Is there any logic to it? I can't use the default USB-adapter (in Europe), is there a minimum amperage it should supply?

      I've had mine for about 2 weeks, and It's truly an amazing thing. I'm a huge Mario fan and a gamer. Everyone is so amazed by it. Its practically the main piece in my room along with my computer, which makes me feel bad about about the lava lamp I received for Christmas (I use both for a big nostalgic effect). It's really just an awesome little gift. I love it, thank you for this fantastic lamp!

    9. Kenneth Eagles on January 20, 2014

      Mine came today, all works but no tracking working once it got to LA.

      Still no answer. I wrote a complain on their fb page, but they've deleted it. So they must be reading all the comments - yet they choose to ignore me. Anyone else experiencing the same problem?

      I've emailed. I've left a comment below. No response what so ever. What the hell? Get your sh** sorted out mate. I'm lodging a complaint. I expect a response from 8-Bit Lit TODAY. GET IT SORTED.

      Im from Australia as well. Havent received the order. Messaged a few days ago but havent got a reply. I just sae below comments and emailed to concerns@8bitlit.com. Hoping this will be resolved soon as my order is way way overdue now.

    15. Evan Schwartz on January 12, 2014

      Just opened my lamp today! It's so cool! I'm still trying to figure out how i'm going to hang it since I can't drill into the walls or ceiling in my dorm, but once I get it hanging it will look very nice. Thanks 8-Bit Lit!

    16. 8-Bit Lit Creator on January 11, 2014

      Hey everyone. I'm so sorry about the delay here, I've been at CES for the week. We had a few orders that fell through the cracks due to a logistics glitch. I've reached out to each of you individually to straighten things out. If you haven't received your order, or a tracking number, please email me at concerns@8bitlit.com.

      Thanks so much,
      Adam

      Hej,
      the ? on my lamp looks somewhat blurry and I can barely see them when the lamp is off..
      is that normal?

    18. Kenneth Eagles on January 9, 2014

      Finally got an email back today informing me that they have just sent it today!

      Great call Evan. I actually hadn't considered crowdfunding it. Seems like the right way to go though...

      pretty insulting actually- they responded to update comments - clearly doesn't care - filing a complaint with Amazon and kickstarter

      BCotten on January 8, 2014

      US backer --multiple emails, multiple posts and nothing. It's pretty clear that we are being deliberately ignored because the holidays are longer an acceptable excuse and the fact they have actually posted an update without actually responding to anything.

    21. Kenneth Eagles on January 8, 2014

      Hi Talissa. I'm in Australia as well. I have emailed twice and messaged them on here twice with no reply, no delivery, no tracking, nothing!

      Lamp still hasn't arrived, no shipment info and no reply to my email. I'm in Australia and getting concerned mine might have got lost in the mail (as do many other items I buy from the US)...Getting impatient

    23. Mat Kuwitzky on January 7, 2014

      We were showing off our awesome ? Block lamp and suddenly we got it to do a invulnerable star music. Is this done Easter egg? Still haven't got it to replicate but it was EPIC!!!!!

    24. Stephen Tang on January 7, 2014

      Hi Adam, I'm checking in to see if you received the email with the photos of the lamp. My lamp looks like it was assembled inside out (the question marks look like they are on the inside). Let me know if my lamp is built incorrectly or not. Thanks.

    25. Kevin Daniels on January 6, 2014

      I received my lamp but two of the sides are upside down. Is there an easy way to open the lamp as I am afraid of cracking a side?

      I wonder if the podcast update will inform me when I will receive my reward or even get a response from the creators.

      Recieved mine 2 days before Christmas. In NY, UPS was beyond backed up cluster f$&@;?d. But side note, every 56 hits gives you a Star song with blinking lights!

    28. Steve Hallwirth on January 6, 2014

      I have not received a tracking number or the lamp... What should I do? (international shipping to Austria)

      BCotten on January 5, 2014

      "If you're in the US, everything should be arriving before Christmas. We're really sorry if UPS takes longer than expected. There are often issues with weather that cause minor delays.

      Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding as we got the lamps out to you. Our main concern is that you're happy with the product, so if there's anything amiss, please email us at concerns@8bitlit.com."

      P.S. Running out of patience

      still nothing here either - emailed the person I was told to email and still nothing - seems odd that people received them weeks ago --even international backers - yet I still get to look like a boob with Christmas gifts that still aren't here

    33. Kenneth Eagles on January 2, 2014

      Hi I still have not heard back from my 2 emails and my previous post on here. I still have not received any notification or tracking number that my lamp has been sent. Any help?

    34. Evan Schwartz on January 1, 2014

      Happy New Year 8-Bit Lit! Can't wait to get my lamp after break!

    35. 8-Bit Lit Creator on December 30, 2013

      Hey everyone! So excited to hear that people are happy with the lamps : )

      @Yogfei - the international shipping should take a couple weeks. It likely shipped out on the 16th or 17th of Dec, so you may still have a few days to go.

      @Gary Moe - Concern understood. This is determined by the paint transparency on the inside of the lamp. For the next round we'll take this into consideration.

      - Adam

    36. Joe Huttlin III on December 29, 2013

      Got mine a few days ago. Love it guys, really. The hardest thing about it is deciding where to hand it. I also love the the other sounds!! Including 1Up & invincible mario sounds was genius. Looks and feel goods, works as expected.

      Well done!

    37. Yogfei on December 28, 2013

      Hi, anyone French here ? My lamp says delivered on stamps.com but never received it... So if another French can help me could be cool ? :)

      Salut, si un Francais pouvait me dire s'il a recu sa lampe la mienne est indiqué comme livré sur stamps.com mais je ne l'ai pas recu :( Merci d'avance

    38. Ira Roth on December 24, 2013

      Gently headbutting the lamp to turn it on and off is so emotionally fulfilling!

      Gary Moe on December 24, 2013

      Is it just me or am I the only one that wish it was easier to tell what the block is with the light off? I mean with the light off I don't really see it as Mario Question Mark Block but more a yellow block with some dark squiggles on the sides. With the light on you can make out the question mark a lot better but even than the image of the question mark looks blurry / out of focus / faded.

      Got my lamp and I love it. Also got mine to go into power star mode once, but I can figure out how I did it.

      And I just found star mode!

    43. Ira Roth on December 23, 2013

      Forget being here in time for christmas.... This arrived just in time for Festivus! Im seriously happy and am so proud to have helped back this project. Next step.... Lets figure out something for Zelda... Maybe some kind of Triforce Lamp that in 3 triangles and three different colors then activated as one, become a white light.... Good Job to all those involved!

      Mark me down as one happy customer. It's better than the video shows. It came with a ridiculously long cord which is exactly what something like this needs, that was a nice surprise. The question mark is a little hard to see when the lamp is off, but it looks perfect when the lamp is on. I don't know if I missed this in all the update videos but after its been on a while, maybe 30 second and you go to turn it off, it makes a different noise. I think it's the one up sound. Nice surprise. I was also under the impression you actually had to hit the bottom. Not the case it's motion activated but only from directly underneith and very close. I purchased the stand in case I didn't have a place to hang it, and although I'm not using it, it is really nicely made.

      A+ job I seriously could not be happier with it!

    45. 8-Bit Lit Creator on December 23, 2013

      Hey everyone!!! I'm so sorry for being away from this chain. We've been handling customer service emails from all sides, so I've been a bit scattered.

      If you received a lamp but there's a problem with it, please email: concerns@8bitlit.com

      If you do not yet have your tracking number, and would like it, please email: erik@8bitlit.com

      Thanks so much and happy holidays!

      My lamp just turned up in the UK. There is a crack in the bottom along the line of where the electronics are housed. It doesn't activate by touch at all, when it hangs it just goes off whenever it wants. I think I got a 'dud'.

    47. Kenneth Eagles on December 23, 2013

      I still haven't received a shipping notice. Any idea what the go is? I was hoping to have this by Christmas but guess that's not happening.

    48. Dale Higgs on December 22, 2013

      Well worth the wait! Once these are available in bulk, I could see myself buying a ton of these. Possibly the best invention of the year. Who has received theirs and made it go into Star Power mode?!

    49. Cameron Gibbs on December 22, 2013

      Got mine the other day. I was going to give it to my boys for Christmas but after playing with it, I may just keep it for myself. Too fun! :) Ok. I guess, I'll give it to them.
