Just doing our part to keep the USPS in business.

      That would be a good project to make with Blocklets... if they ever ship.

      Marshal - next product - how about a castle, built in the same style, that has smaller parts - thus less "strong" - that we can use the trebuchet against. Would need laser-engraved letter/numbers to facilitate construction, as all parts would be stowed together, transported, and built at a fair.

      Hi dimitrios,

      When we've finished with the backlog of Trebuchettes we'll start working on our next product! We were able to buy our own laser cutter using the Kickstarter proceeds, so we should be able to go into production on a bunch of other cool things.

      I think we've shared the funniest moments along the way in our weekly backer updates. I'll have to ask Evan and Mike if there were any funny outtakes from the original video; they filmed that before I got here.

      Thnx for the comment!

      What will you do when the major part of the Trebuchette project is over? I wonder if you had time to record more activity than just the updates. For instance, outtakes, deleted scenes, director's commentary like on dvd movies. Have there been any slapstick moments along the way? Candidates for the Darwin Award?
