      Ben, after a few months of repeated messages, Devin contacted me May 8 to say that he would just refund me my money because he had tried shipping me my posters twice and that they had somehow gotten lost in the mail both times (and my address is correct). A little fishy, but at least he offered the refund. However, I wrote him four messages since with my Paypal information, and no response at all.

      Devin, if you truly have good intentions--then please respond to both Ben and I. This project was funded over half a year ago and I've yet to see either my money or a product. I've done my best to understand any logistical issues you might have--but this is simply absurd. The printing process was perfected in like the 1400s and does not require months to be accomplished. What I don't understand is that I've trolled your personal website--and it looks like you are pretty well established in your career Devin. I can't even fathom how someone like you could bungle something like this so spectacularly. Some people got posters months ago, others like me haven't gotten anything--and we've heard virtually nothing from you in the meantime. Please respond immediately.

      He contacted me 2 months ago when I left a comment about unprofessionalism. I've now not heard back after repeatedly trying to contact him and am demanding a refund. Will kick starter step in or am I alone and out $150?!

      Hi Devin, any update on shipping for those of us in backerland?

      M. Egmond on

      Still nothing here (Netherlands). Einstein and Darwin. Was originally targetting this as a gift in December, and realized we might not quite make it, so have been telling people that it will be soon. Of course nobody believes me anymore (including myself) :(

      There doesn't really seem to be any connection between where people are or what they ordered, for those still waiting. Is the shipping process completely random? Is it ever going to happen?

      Last update two months ago "we're almost there". Yeah right... UPDATE PLEASE! (Or rather: SHIPPING PLEASE!)

      I ordered three (two Einstein and 1 Curie). I received the Einstein ones around Christmas time, but have had no communication since then, and no Curie.

    6. Sam AlMulla on

      Yeah, I haven't received anything either.
      Has he actually been shipping the posters out?

    7. Bae Meservey on

      It's been so long, I'm trying to remember which two posters I ordered. I think it was Einstein and Curie. I haven't received either, nor have I received any communication from Devin.

    8. Brit Masters on

      Devin, seriously. Please take the time to answer us.

    9. Brit Masters on

      Devin? Please respond with an update. How many people still haven't gotten their posters? What's the issue? When can I expect mine?

    10. Tanja Williams Hancock on

      Still haven't received my poster and my address is in the same state, CA! Waiting, Wondering & Reading that I'm in the 25% that will get what we pledged.

    11. Nic Hayes on

      Just got mine today! They did come out pretty cool! Thanks Devin!

    12. Nic Hayes on

      Just curious how many people have received their posters if they ordered more than one? These are really cool and I wish we could get a public update.

    13. Brit Masters on

      Please update Devin.

    14. Nic Hayes on

      Any update for us Devin? I Have not received anything either...

    15. David Blake on

      Still haven't received my posters! Frustrated

    16. William Karavites on

      Still haven't received anything. I know stuff can happen but, communication is key. Can't wait.

      Ben Goldberg on

      Update. Communicate. 6 months and I've received nothing. Unbelievably unprofessional

    18. Peter Dosh on

      Please an official update Devin... Whats so hard about it?
      462 backers is not impossible to handle and some of us already received their stuff..
      Im backing stuff with thousands of backers and international shippings and its done by one guy/his family as well.
      Brit Masters wrote you tried to print Curie already? --> Why dont you upload it as preview, as all the other posters?
      Communication Devin.. Please. nearly half a year over the expected delivery date is not a joke anymore.

      Answer/Update appreciated
      Still: We love what you do and pay you for this. --> so dont get frustrated and keep your head up! ;)

      That's a convenient excuse. However, I only ordered the Einstein and Tesla posters which were designed before funding finished and have yet to receive anything. I am in the US. I was told via PM on Jan 24 that shipping issues were to blame and asking me to confirm my address (seems odd to ask me to confirm if you have the questionnaire results). We're definitely to the 'somethings fishy' point.

    20. Brit Masters on

      Hey y'all, just fyi, a couple of weeks ago--Devin told me that there had been a misprint of the Curie posters, so all of them had to be redone. It sounds like for most of us that haven't received them, it's because of the Curie poster.

      Devin, please provide an update on this situation though. I have to think that you would have been able to get the Curie posters re-printed by now.

    21. Lura Lacy on

      Must say for a project that met it's goal September 28, 2012, it is taking a long time not to get our posters that we in good faith helped you print. I am very disappointed and will now contact Kickstarter with my grievances since I am not getting any response from the email I have mailed to you.

    22. Ivy Fortmeyer on

      Is Curie not done yet or something?

      Are these happening? I haven't heard anything in a long time.

    24. Harm Donkers on

      Received my Einstein poster today (Netherlands )and it looks great! Thanks!

    25. Peter Dosh on

      Small update would be nice..
      and Curie as preview maybe too.

      Thanks Devin

    26. popkhorne on

      Received my poster today, looking great!

    28. Gabriel Meunier on

      Just received mine yesterday (Einstein, Canada) and it looks gorgeous!

      Donna Gresh on

      I haven't been personally contacted since just after the New Year. I'm STILL waiting for Curie.

    30. popkhorne on

      Thanks for the update Devin, looking forward to get my hands on Darwin.

    31. Devin Creator on

      A big batch just went out again in the mail last week so everyone stay tuned. We're almost there, thanks guys for hanging in there!

    32. Sam AlMulla on

      Hey Devin, I still haven't gotten my posters yet.
      Can I get an update as to their shipping status?

    33. Nic Hayes on

      Thanks for the update Devin, Looking forward to getting mine!

    34. Devin Creator on

      Hey guys, more posters go out everyday, I'm trying to contact everyone individually who hasn't received yet...don't worry, I intend to make sure everyone gets their shipment! Thanks for hanging tough with me!

      "I will definitely keep you guys more in the loop moving forward."

      I guess this isn't happening. Almost another 2 months without an update. It's good to see some people are still receiving posters (well, at least two), but without updates, without tracking information it's impossible for the rest of us to trust anything is still going to happen. Why is it so difficult to post a short message, or to get these things out the door? If there are (more) problems, at least let us know!

    36. Brit Masters on

      Seriously Devin, update and ship me my posters or my money back. This is several months overdue now with almost zero communication from you. I love your designs and think they would look so cool on my walls, but I have to actually get them for that to happen. Please get on top this immediately.

    37. Louka Parry on

      Hi Devin, I echo others here in wanting to find out when final delivery can be expected. Looking forward to them all.

      I received the Einstein posters, but am still waiting for my third, of Marie Curie.

    43. William Karavites on

      Same. Still waiting. Can't wait to hang them up though!

    44. Brit Masters on

      Still haven't received my posters. Devin, please update on the shipping process.

    45. Joel on

      Also just leaving a comment to say that I haven't received any posters either. My decor is really hurting without these :)

    46. popkhorne on

      Anything happening on the poster front?

    47. Christopher Krüger on

      Hey, any updates? I completed the survey when the turing picture was made available and have not heared anything since then.
