      I never noticed that the RAHC guide was for SECOND gen Joes. I assumed it was for the original ARAH figures. Got mine in the mail today and it finally clicked, lol. Are you planning to do an RAHC for the original ARAH Joes from the '80s as well? That's actually what I thought I was ordering (my own fault of course). Cheers. :)

      Hi all! I am wrapping up shipping. Some have even reported receiving theirs already! Be on the look out and, in the next week or so, if you haven't received your pledge reward, contact me here. Thanks again all!

      Update: I received the email to pick up the new guides and I will do so, as well as begin shipping, tomorrow. Keep a lookout for your pledges and thanks again!!

    6. James M. Kavanaugh Jr. 2-time creator on May 4

      Hi all! Checking in. The guides have been approved by the printer a few weeks ago and should be ready soon. I am all set on my end to fulfill orders once the books are ready. FYI, guides are printed locally so there is no shipping wait. Stay tuned and thanks again for everything!!

      The Alternate cover! It really was a close race and needed every vote in to make a clear winner. Both are great options, I had to bring both options to finality before submitted it to a test audience and I made my decision. I hope everyone is happy. There are a few outstanding surveys (again, addresses) to fill out, so if you haven't filled them out yet, please do. Thanks again everyone for your pledges!

    8. James M. Kavanaugh Jr. 2-time creator on April 9

      Hello all. Checking in with the results for volume 2. The winner is....

    9. James M. Kavanaugh Jr. 2-time creator on March 27

      More surveys have come in but the vote is still close! There are still some surveys that need to be filled out (again, a survey is providing your address) so once there is no way a survey can change the vote is when I announce the winner! So get your surveys in!!

    10. James M. Kavanaugh Jr. 2-time creator on March 22

      Thanks Mike! But as I always say, the hobby is like the Joe team and this was indeed a team effort!!

    11. James M. Kavanaugh Jr. 2-time creator on March 22

      Hi all! Thanks for paying and thanks for filing out the survey (providing your addresses). If you haven't followed through with your pledge, please do so. I say that because I have tabulated the volume 2.1 results so far and it's too close to call!! I will wait until those who need to pay and/or fill our their surveys to announce the winner but please do so at your earliest convenience! I left the ability to change your address active so, if you change your vote, it might be best to message me indicating you did so, I had to download the spreadsheets to tabulate the winners. Thanks!

      Did my Survey can’t wait to add these to 1.1 very proud of you James and can’t wait for more vol. to come out

    13. James M. Kavanaugh Jr. 2-time creator on March 17

      Ok, survey's are sent out. Again, Kickstarter calls address and comment collecting surveys.
      Comment or message me if you have any questions or the survey doesn't satisfy your needs. See, I am learning from the last Kickstarter. ;D I really can't thank everyone enough for pledging and driving this home! I hope you enjoy your revised guides and stay tuned for a summer release date for volume 4 as well as some surprises... Stay tuned.

      I will keep everyone posted here with any changes to or roadblocks but it's pretty straight forward. Both volumes should ship out end of April. Volumes 1.1 and the original RAHC Guide orders, as well as the One and Only Souvenirs, will be sent all at once with volumes 2 and/or 3. I will tabulate the winning cover once the surveys are sent in. Oh, yeah, the faster you send in your surveys, the faster I can send the files to the printer. If one cover appears to be a landslide, I will call it and move forward. Much like the G.I. Joe team, collecting really is a team hobby, you're pledging is greatly appreciated. Thanks again all!!

    22. Bob, Agent of Hydra on March 9

      Just pledged for volume 2.1 and 1.1
      Let’s get this funded!

    23. James M. Kavanaugh Jr. 2-time creator on March 7

      Hello Flea, Thanks for pledging and that is correct.

      FYI to all, I am now able to read messages directly on Kickstarter (instead of receiving an email notification and not being able to respond). So you may ask any questions you have in the comments or directly in messages. Thanks again!

    24. Flea on March 4

      Hi James,

      I pledged at the "lemon twist" level and added the extra $25 for volume 1.1

      If there's another way I need to contact you please let me know.

      Thanks

    25. James M. Kavanaugh Jr. 2-time creator on March 3

      Flea: You wrote me via message and, unfortunately, Kickstarter's messages are not showing. I receive emails stating someone sent me a message but I cannot respond via the dashboard. I don't know what the problem is, I've tried three browsers, and have a ticket in.

      To answer your question about a The One and Only Souvenir and volumes 1.1, 2.1, and 3,1, you would want to pledge at the "Lemon Twist" level and add $25 with a message to me stating what the additional funds are for.

      To everyone reading this, I will post an update when I can once again read messages.

      Thanks!!

    26. James M. Kavanaugh Jr. 2-time creator on February 27

      Hey Jake, I thought about that after I published and I'm glad you asked. When it is time to pay, there is a space for notes. I will tally the choices then so post your vote. Thanks!

      Mr. K, how to I vote on the covers if I want both volumes 2 and 3?

    28. James M. Kavanaugh Jr. 2-time creator on February 25

      Sorry Mike, I pulled the trigger and KS said it might take a few days to review. It was approved in an hour. They apparently want this thing going! Thanks for your support!!
