      I can't believe how long ago this was and we still don't have, and will never receive, rewards. What a fraud.

      Are the people involved in this film (Kevin Smith,Tim Burton,etc) aware that the fans that funded it have been ripped off. Been over 4 years now since you got our money. In your campaign you came across a fan who would appreciate support from other fans. You seemed trustworthy and you were being promoted by some well known websites which gave you some credibility. I'm shocked at the way we've been treated and I can't believe you asked for money for 2 other projects before completing the pledges for this one. I'm not convinced the pledge rewards you promised even exist.

      ??????? They were ready to ship in August. It's about to be February. At least start shipping some of it out even if its one at a friggin time! geez.

    4. Uri Levanon on January 26

      I've never received ANYTHING! either update asap or we should just all contact Kickstarter's support to handle this.

      Take care of your customers, or face a storm...

    5. Jon Schnepp 3-time creator on December 11

      All Backers,

      I'm getting some help to ship out the posters, patches, and figures. I will send out an update as soon as they are in the mail. Thanks for the patience.

      Hi are we still getting the score CD's, posters and patches? I received my BD/DVD combo but not the other stuff that was under my pledge level.

    7. Uri Levanon on December 7

      Hi Jon,
      I've never received any of the deliverables. Can you please check?

    8. David Hilton on August 7, 2016

      Hi Jon, how do we send you a message with our new addresses? I actually changed/updated mine using the "View Pledge" updater on the backer page. Are you pulling them from that as well?

    9. Jon Schnepp 3-time creator on August 7, 2016

      @ Adam Zaner: i will look into that, please send your shipping address here, and i will get you a copy sent out this week

    10. Adam Zaner on August 7, 2016

      I've never received any DBD/Blu-ray combo, or any link to a Digital Download. Perhaps I was inadvertently skipped. Please do send those items along. Thanks.

    11. Jon Schnepp 3-time creator on August 6, 2016

      My apologies for the longer delay in shipping out your final items. I have them all ready to ship, just got bogged down with delays, and other money people turning out to not be able to deliver, so I'm forced to wait until I can ship the items to you. I was hoping I could get everything shipped but the months flew by, and here we are three more months later. I will be shipping to all the people who backed this kickstarter, as soon as I can. Thanks again for your support and patience.

      I noticed on Twitter your doing a "What happened:The series". I'm wondering if there will be a "Kickstarter rewards: What Happened!"

      I will be contacting Kickstarter to see if anything can be done. This guy is a complete joke. Last login was March 1st.

      I hate to say it but this seems to be a con. He insults the backers of this film by not replying to us while attempting to kickstart another movie. I will never use Kickstarter again nor back anything Schnepp does. WHERE IS OUR STUFF?!?!?!?!?!?

    15. Calvin W. on July 19, 2016

      You originally said February, then April, but it's July and you abandoned this kickstarter. Where are you??!!!! I see you on collider videos all the about you take a day off?

    16. Calvin W. on July 19, 2016

      Hey, sent you messages and didn't see any reply. I'm with everyone else here wondering when the last set of rewards are going to be shipped. An update would have been nice if they were delayed.

    17. David Hilton on July 10, 2016

      John, it's been 3 and a half years now since I funded your project. When you pleaded for more backing, I decided to up my pledge from $25 to $65. I stood by your documentary. You delayed, I stayed. I was patient. And now my patience is wearing a bit thin. This is the last comment I'm leaving. You owe it to your backers to reach out and let them know about their missing pledge gifts. You given two dates now for shipment of said gifts - February and April - and still we haven't seen anything or an update.

      I don't care if you have the gifts or not. You owe an answer to the thousands that made this happen. Please provide an update.

      Schnepp needs to get our stuff to us. Last update was on April 8th. NO EXCUSES! Where's our stuff?

      @Blake. Nothing else has shipped. On Twitter he said he would be shipping before the summer. He didn't specify this summer, or next summer, or maybe summer 2020 though. So who knows.

    20. Blake Fertig on June 2, 2016

      So far I've gotten the Blu-ray and that's it. Still waiting on everything else. Has anyone else gotten anything other than the Blu-ray?

    21. David Hilton on May 15, 2016

      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?

    23. Jon Schnepp 3-time creator on April 8, 2016

      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.

      I still haven't received my digital download link. Please send me the link again, Mr. Schnepp! THANK YOU!!

    28. David Hilton on February 27, 2016

      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!

    29. Simon ESBÉ Bergeron on January 21, 2016

      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.

    30. Jon Schnepp 3-time creator on January 20, 2016

      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!

    36. 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

    37. 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.


    38. Jon Schnepp 3-time creator on August 28, 2015

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

    39. Andy Molloy on August 28, 2015

      got the blu ray (not signed) just waiting on the rest of the stuff, i guess that's being shipped separate? up dates please!
