      Hi Jon, can you please provide another update on the shipped items? It's been weeks since your April 8 update, and I still haven't received anything. I'm going to be moving in a month and a half, and I'd like to make sure they get to my new address. I'm sure other backers are concerned just the same, especially since this is the start of the "moving season." Thanks.

      Anyone receive yet?

    3. Creator Jon Schnepp on April 8

      I have got everything ready to ship, just getting the final elements (tubes, mailers), and will put in the mail next week. Thanks again for the patience, this is a two person crew, and we are doing our best. We are shipping the posters, patches, and figures next week. The T-Shirts are being priced out and will be made and shipped in a month or so.

      Just noticed you're after funding for another documentary. I backed this project more than 3 years ago and I'm still waiting for the rewards to be fulfilled. I can't say that I'm filled with confidence to back anymore of your work right now. I might have a change of heart if my stuff ever turns up.

      Hey Schnepp, I completely forgot about the additional items I pledged for until now. You mentioned shipping them out first week of February, but I haven't seen anything come through yet. There are probably a lot of people that provided addresses a while back that have since moved; I'll be moving soon as well. Please provide another update to your backers on this. Thanks!

      Hi, there is also a "limited edition soundtrack CD" in my pledge, is this still supposed to happen? Thanks for any info on the subject.

    11. Creator Jon Schnepp on January 20

      All Movie Posters, Embroidered Patches, Super-Robot Figures, and Art Prints will be getting put in the mail this coming first week of February. It's taken some time, but all the rewards are being fullfilled. Thank you all for your patience and support, as we've been getting the movie out to the world, we could not have done this without your help!

      sorry Jon, looks like my brother's blu ray player is crap. Works fine on mine. Sorry to scare you. Amazing documentary by the way!! Thanks!

    17. Jimi Nguyen on September 10, 2015

      Hey haven't got anything, please let me know status. I haven't check in a while, but it said that the disc shipped in july/august and it is september. thanx in advance

    18. Adam Smith on September 2, 2015

      Hey Jon,
      I never received the download link for the digital copy. It's possible it went into Junk and got deleted or something. Could you send/resend it? I backed at the $25 level.


    19. Creator Jon Schnepp on August 28, 2015

      @ David Macdonald: that's odd. Please send it back to me and I'll replace it for you.

    20. Andy Molloy on August 28, 2015

      Blu ray showed up. While I'm not a fan of the kickstarter overall, it was a very good documentary.

      Sorry, Jake, like I mentioned, a few people slipped through the over 2000 kickstarters. I just sent your digital copy to your email, and all the blu-ray/DVD combo packs are shipping to all kickstarters next week. Thanks for your patience.

      Hi, my name is Jake Cohn and I still have not received a digital copy/link. Am I even getting one of the blu ray copies? I've been eagerly awaiting to see this film, and being a backer, I would've loved to see it before the masses get email is Please send a digital copy and also let me know if I'm actually going to receive a blu Ray copy. Thanks!

      Hey I wanted to tell you I still haven't got my blu-ray in the mail yet.

    37. Jeff Jacobs on August 4, 2015

      Thanks for the quick reply. Just go it! Cant wait to watch this!

    38. Creator Jon Schnepp on August 4, 2015

      just sent yours off, Jeff, some people out of the thousands did not get a digital download. Doing my best to get them out.

    39. Jeff Jacobs on August 4, 2015

      Still haven't gotten my download of the movie. I gave my info in the "blurays and DVDs shipping this week!" post 2 weeks ago. I understand you have a lot of work but sending a link shouldn't be this hard.

      Jeff on August 2, 2015

      So first the dvd/blu rays were going to ship the week after Comicon, then it was by week's end the next week, then it was going to be shipped last week, now it's being manufactured now. Is there a REAL time frame we can expect them? Such a joke.

    41. Creator Jon Schnepp on August 2, 2015

      A few people have slipped throught the cracks, but I'm getting them sealed up! Dale, Jackie, sent off your downloads, sorry about the wait. All the kickstarter combo pack dvd/Blu-ray are being nmanufactured right now, with an all new cover!

      Thank you very much! I just saw your response. My email is I look forward to seeing the digital download, and my kid is really excited about the blu-ray/DVD combo. Best wishes and congrats! We have heard very nice comments on your film.

    46. DIRK on July 21, 2015

      Watched last night. Well done, really enjoyed it. How do we get to view the extra content?

    47. Creator Jon Schnepp on July 19, 2015

      People who contributed for the digital Download reward at $25 should have gotten their download, those who less and want to see the film can go to to get the download or bluray. We are currently getting the special edition kickstarter made up and ready to ship at weeks end. Thanks again for your patience, these are all combo blu/dvds, so they are taking a bit longer. I have sent out digital downloads to all those who who somehow did not get it. Thanks again everybody

    48. jay reason on July 19, 2015

      I still have not gotten the email, I emailed you

    49. Robert E on July 18, 2015

      I gave you my name an email. Still no digital download.

    50. David Spear on July 18, 2015

      Finally got around to watching this tonight. I can't imagine the Superman film actually being good, but it was pretty interesting to see all the people involved and get their thoughts and memories on what could have been. Awesome job, thanks for making it happen.
