      @Marcos - this has been sent already. I seem to have a LOT of stuff go missing in Brazil at the moment :(

      Hi, still waiting my t-shirt with the Crash Logo +s 112 page full colour annual. Can you send me a track number?

      @Helicon - yes, you can peel that off :)

      @Paul - sent some replacements out - hopefully you got one :)

      Hi Chris, I've a stupid question, the clear plastic front screen of my Oli bug is covered in 04 PE-LD recycling symbols. Is that a layer that can be peeled off? Rather spoils the bug as it is. Thanks

      That's fair enough Chris. I can't remember whether I knew this from the beginning and forgot or just got thrown by later comments about sizes. Either way, it's been a great campaign and thanks for all your effort.

      T-shirts : If you look at the campaign I said that I would only be getting XL t-shirts. I actually got some L and M as well as I read quite a few of the posts where people were discussing - so I did flex a little. I have now received some more XL and L T-shirts - so those who want to replace what they have for an XL, then I will get in touch.

      I received a M-sized T-shirt last monday, need XXL og XXXL. Didn't get any survey or request asking for size.
      Tried Emailing Chris from 2 seperate mail accounts (to avoid spam), but he doesn't answer any more (but puts lot of requests on Facebook for Zzap annual Kickstarter)

      I also got the t-shirt yesterday, but it is a M sized one, and I need a XL. Can I get a replacement?

    10. Paul Watson on February 19

      Hi Chris, my t-shirt has arrived, thanks.'s XL. Was there a survey for t-shirt sizes? I remember a comment relating to the shirt sizes late last year: "I will sort the rest, including asking for sizes etc probably in the New Year then." I don't remember being asked what size I wanted (which would have been L). Thanks, Paul

      I have now received the remaining T-shirts - will pack this weekend and send out on Monday. That should be all the perks sent out then.

      Hi Chris,
      Will all of us also get the PDFs? The campaign only listed the PDF at the lowest tier and no PDF option for other tiers.

      Thanks for the reply and I understand. I had lost hope but 5 minutes ago the postman played and the magazine with the calendar and the pins are arrived. Thank you, great job!

      Hi there to those who have not received their annual yet - I have sent them all, the last batch going out a week or so before Christmas. I guess this is a busy time of year and there is a backlog in the postal system. If your book does not arrive in the next 2-3 weeks, I WILL send you another. I do not want to send you another book now, and then 2 arrive! :)

      Got my Annual in on Tuesday (Austin, TX, USA), badges, poster all look great. Every page is a work of art and cannot just be read, but has to be taken in slowly. I am amazed at the amount of artwork on every page. Got my 'little book' and Egghead cassette in well before the holiday, so I am good for the next ice storm with plenty to read and play. Thank you for the excellent job.

      Received in uk. Fantastic. Definitely a crash smash

    42. Karl Savage on December 25

      Oh, one thing...unless I'm missing something, when one visits the URL mentioned at the end of the book, in order to view the list of backers, one is simply met with the message "To be completed..." Just from the way Roger has written the outro, it sounds as though the list should be up there already...?

    43. Iestyn Davies on December 25

      Hey Chris. Finally read my Annual this morning, and I couldn't be happier! I even had my letter printed in the forum, happy days! One tiny problem, the calendar had something sticky on the January page and as a consequence the January image has been slightly damaged due to the page above it being stuck to it when I turned the page. Do you have any spare calendars? Is there any way I could swap it for a different one if so please? Again, thanks for an amazing annual, I'm heading back to JSW now! ;-p

      Opened mine this morning ... absolutely brilliant job ... and I am a teenager again.

      Savoured a few pages whilst moderating small children, absolutely wonderful.

      Thank you again!

    45. Karl Savage on December 25

      Merry Christmas Crash backers one & all!

      Despite being up since 6.15 this morning (kids eh...?) the annual is, so far, the only "gift" I've opened - but then, it's the only thing I could say I was truly excited for. And, man, was it worth the wait. The book is such a thing of beauty, I'm turning each page with the kind of care normally reserved for handling a newborn baby. A credit to all involved in it's creation, you guys have done a bang-up job and I absolutely second the calls to make this an annual event! Thankyou for winding back the clock 30+ years for us, the original Crash readership who made the magazine the legendary force it's still considered today :)
