    2. Creator Torment- The Enduring Exile on June 27, 2013

      Got mine today.

      Mine had Joke #90

      What did Paul Seaman say to Art Garbarnacle?

      You can call me Albatross.

      Anyway. Thanks Ari. I'm going to man the harpoons.

      Just got my wife's whale stapler today. Great stuff. The joke was a good one!

    4. Creator Lee Nilsson on June 18, 2013

      Just got our whale stapler. Love it. Where are the "sounds of the whale stapler?"

    5. Creator JK on April 17, 2013

      Since you had to chop up the whale to make the stapler you could probably make a tap despensor from the tail section. :)

    6. Creator Dustin Schwartz on February 25, 2013

      Gratz on successful funding!

    7. Creator John Omally on February 23, 2013

      Congratulations dude! Whale staplers~!

    8. Creator Backercamp on February 20, 2013

      Just backed!

    9. Creator Ari Glogower on February 19, 2013

      Thanks everyone, I'm really excited about the new species. The whales are evolving. I will post any new FAQs as questions arise ...

    10. Creator sara hoffman on February 19, 2013

      Dude! I saw the whale stapler on https://www.kickstarter.com/mobile!
      *high five*

      Will you be adding more to the FAQ about the new whale species?

    11. Creator Lee Nilsson on February 18, 2013

      The new designs are great. North Atlantic Grey for us. Like that classic look.

    12. Creator Ari Glogower on February 10, 2013

      Hi Keith & Greg, Thanks for the important question. See the FAQ for an answer.

    13. Creator Ari Glogower on February 10, 2013

      Thanks Lee! This is also the first Kickstarter I've felt compelled to launch. Can't wait to to send you your whale stapler!

    14. Creator Lee Nilsson on February 10, 2013

      This is the first Kickstarter we've ever felt compelled to support. We cant wait for our whale stapler.

    15. Creator Keith London & Greg Petan (deleted) on February 9, 2013

      Hi Ari -

      What does the Whale Stapler eat? Is it a filter feeder or does it need a steady diet of giant squid? Thanks!

    16. Creator Keith London & Greg Petan (deleted) on February 9, 2013

      Great work, fighting to save the whale staplers! Thank you!

    17. Creator John Omally on February 9, 2013

      Whalpler

    18. Creator JK on February 8, 2013

      I meant 1 and a half foot wide. Like a huge one!

    19. Creator JK on February 8, 2013

      You should make a whale sized version that is like 1 and a half long! I would buy that.

    20. Creator Andreas Liebschner on February 6, 2013

      You had me at "Unfortunately, normal lego bricks barely exist anymore, just this crap, so I didn't have time to find some for this project.".

    21. Creator JK on February 6, 2013

      Thanks for the update! Looking forward to my whale stapler.

    22. Creator Ari Glogower on February 6, 2013

      JJ: See the FAQS section for a prior question on blow-holes. I know this is an important issue, so I want to set the record straight.

    23. Creator Ari Glogower on February 6, 2013

      Hi JJ,

      Thanks for your question. All the whale staplers will be made by hand, which takes time. But then again, I am prepared to get them all done, I just won't have much of a life outside of "sleep-work-staplers" until they're finished. I've started production already based on the incredibly positive response, and hope to post a production update soon. Friends have also offered to help out in meeting the demand.

      Short answer then is I plan to have all the staplers ready April, if not sooner.

      I ordered LOTS of internal stapler parts from china, since that is the only way they let you do business there. If for some reason I need to order more stapler mechanisms, there might be a slight delay, but the manufacturer is on notice and will ship quickly if it looks like I'm getting to the point where I need more (not likely, but you never know!)

      Thanks again and can't wait to send you your stapler!

      Ari

    24. Creator JK on February 6, 2013

      Love the project!

      Will you be making these based on backer order? Just curious in can you project gets super popular in the end.

      Last question: no blow hole?

    25. Creator Thomas Gregory on February 5, 2013

      He had me at thieving children.

    26. Creator Dustin Schwartz on February 5, 2013

      Very cool idea you have going here.

    27. Creator Tyler Tinsley on February 5, 2013

      I came for the whale and stayed because it stapled me here

    28. Creator Torment- The Enduring Exile on February 5, 2013

      I had to back this because it's quite a big project you got going here.

    29. Creator Alexandre Peralta on February 5, 2013

      Also-- If you need a mailing address can you please contact me alexis.morrell@gmail.com so it's not sent to Alexandre Peralta... He's my director, but he's not getting my stapler!

    30. Creator Alexandre Peralta on February 5, 2013

      Totally excited about your Whale Stapler! I can't wait to get mine! I just friended you on FB -- My name is Alexis Morrell .. I backed you under my friend's name because we are "Looking at the Stars" on Kickstarter. Good luck and so glad I found your project!!

    31. Creator Ari Glogower on February 3, 2013

      Offering multiple rewards for product design is complicated under Kickstarter policy. Drop me a line and I'll explain ...

    32. Creator tal gluck on February 3, 2013

      Hi Ari,

      If I donate twice as much money, can I have twice as many whale staplers?

      I hope so.

    33. Creator Ari Glogower on January 24, 2013

      I hope to work on producing some of the other carve the whales projects in the future, but it's all whale stapler for now!

    34. Creator Ari Glogower on January 24, 2013

      Most of the Sounds of the Whale Stapler made it into the video, but I will try to post the previous cut that has even more whale stapler sounds!

    35. Creator Andrew Cornett on January 24, 2013

      Do you have any samples of the sounds of the whale stapler?

    36. Creator Becky on January 24, 2013

      I'm so excited to receive my whale stapler! Do you plan to put any other Carve the Whales creations on Kickstarter?
