      Urbio is by far not the longest lead time I've had, and I can tell you one thing: the longer lead times have given me greater products.

      I got a few things a few weeks after funding was done, but they were usually slapdash at best. My Dungeon Dice, which took almost a year, however, were awesome. Same with my Trebuchette.

      @Brian I bet a lot of people are frustrated but having backed a lot I can say this is not (yet) the longest lead time I've had for a project. If you think about it, it really isn't that unrealistic. It takes money to get manufacturers to work with you, so all of the manufacturing had to wait until after the money was received. How long did you think it would take...just cause you can go to the store and buy stuff whenever you want does not mean that products are made just am immediately. Urbio has been transparent with the timeline and I have zero complaints.

      Out of your actual 818 contributers how many do you think are happy with how you have completed or represented your project thus far and how many would like to retract their support...dare you to do a real poll...

      Um, guys - I will have moved out of the country by the time this is shipping - while I love this project, the timeline is ridiculous. Honestly, if I could get my money back - I would,
