Last chance for new Siege Toys Kickstarter

Comment

Hi Trebuchette backers, 

We've been busy over here making new siege engines, as well as some more original Trebuchettes, and some Skallops to boot. We're less than 24 hours a way from completing the new Siege Toys Kickstarter project, so if you're thinking about increasing your arsenal, now's your best chance!

Some new Siege Toys parts, and some others, too!

Also, if you happen to be thinking about some creative toy gifts for Christmas, we're running a sale on the E&M Labs online store: free shipping on all US orders until Monday night! Just make sure you select the "FREE USPS Shipping" option.

Thank you again for all your support!

Evan and Mike at E&M Labs


Update #48

At Long Last: New Siege Engines!

Hi all,

It's been a little more than two years since the Trebuchette launched on Kickstarter, and a whole lot of things have changed! We've grown a lot, and turned into a full-fledged toy company.

One thing that hasn't changed is our love for siege engines. We've just started a new Kickstarter project for two more classic machines, a catapult and a ballista. designed for the desktop out of the same laser cut wood as the Trebuchette:

The new catapult and ballista, now on Kickstarter!

One thing we learned from the long process of building your Trebuchettes is to pay extra close attention to our production timing. For that reason, we've limited the number of catapults and ballistas that we can guarantee are shipping by Christmas. We wanted to give all of you, our very first backers, the first chance to check these out.

Thank you for your support, back in 2011 and now. We wouldn't be here without you!

Mike and Evan.

60 Hours Left for the Skallops, and a Video!

1 comment

In case any of you were on the fence about our second product, Skallops, you should make up your mind soon, because there's only 60 hours left in the Kickstarter funding period!

Also, we made a really cool stop-motion (omgIcan'tbelievewespentthatmuchtimetakingphotos) video for the Skallops project yesterday.
