      @James Once the surveys are complete, we have to provide Jamie with a list of emails for the people who get the .PDF, and he will email you all links to the file. Hope that helps clear things up!

      I don't know if I missed a previous post or not. Has the Met Alpha 5th edition pdf been made available?

      @ James The way things look at the moment is that we are looking to start shipping peoples stuff in the second week in May.

      @Creator What are you looking at for a lock down date?

    5. David Crowell on April 27, 2016

      It is worth clicking on the concept art in the shop on Backer Kit to see the finished minis. A lot of these look even better than the concept art we have all been drooling over.

      @ Glenn Happy to say that everything that was held up, showed up on Wed. last week. I put them into master molds right away, and just have to finish the production molds for 6 pieces. I will have an update later tonight, but I can do a bit more here. The print publications are at the printer, and proofs have been printed. The printer is mailing them out tomorrow, so we should have them by Wed. this week. If all is good there, we will give the greenlight, and should have all of the print stuff in our hands in about a week past that point. I am assembling a 3 of the multi-part pieces so that we can get final weights on them, and get them photographed tonight, and then the surveys should be ready to head out as well. I assure you that know hookers or blow have been purchased with your money and that we are busting our butts to get this done! ;-)

      Sorry for the late reply. Buried in work, but everything is coming out great! Some things have taken a bit more work than anticipated, but still moving along. Planning on sending out surveys when we have the weights to include payment for shipping in the backerkit survey process.

      @Dwight
      Interesting question regarding adding items from our current store to the Backerkit store. Which items or product lines were you interested in? Anyone else interested in this option?

    10. Dwight Fidler on March 28, 2016

      Any more info on whether we'll be able to add minis from your store to the kickstarter backerkit survey? I'd like some of the minis you've previously made but the international shipping makes multiple orders far more expensive.

      @Matthew. That is partly why we are waiting on surveys also. We want everyone to know exactly what the minis will look like, so they can order more through Backerkit if they so desire.

      The new figures look great. When you get all the pieces ready can you put them on one page? People might want to add more to their order if you can fit that into the backerkit.

      @ Eric No surveys have been sent yet, we cannot do that until we have a better idea what some of these pieces will weigh. It will be very soon though, I promise.

    14. Eric Krauss on February 29, 2016

      I did not get the survey yet. Has it gone out? Can you please re-send to me if it did. Thanks.

    15. Jeffrey Runokivi on January 21, 2016

      Not a problem, John...Saw the new sculpts...very nice. Very nice, indeed.

      @Jeffrey no you did not miss it. We have been trying to sort out some of the shipping stuff with Backer Kit. Felipe thinks he has it worked out, so they should be going out tomorrow. Sorry about the delay!

    18. Jeffrey Runokivi on January 18, 2016

      Hey Mr. Popson...did I miss the Backer Survey? Don't wanna miss that!

    24. Jeffrey Olesky on December 26, 2015

      Just to confirm... Since we hit 16k did we unlock the level 10 stretch goal???

      @Kenny, there is some cool minis already, definitely looking forward to seeing the rest once they are sculpted!

      I went in at "EB survival of the fittest" so I should be getting one of each except the James Ward mini, I might get the book add-on too!

      @John/Phillip, Grats on the KS! With all the extra minis we picked up in the last couple of days, I'm going to have to soul searching to decide where my dollars are going. And that's a good thing. :)

      Great last few days! I'm happy
      for you guys. Excited to see what is still to come from this new line of miniatures. I'm glad to hear you will keep working on PC mini's.

      @Ron. We will do some player character stuff now that we will be licensed. The problem with doing PCs is that with the varied amounts of physical mutation combinations that are available in MA, it is tough to make minis that represent them well. Trust me when I say, that we are working on it!

      Merry Christmas! Glad to see so many stretch goals are met!

    35. David Crowell on December 25, 2015

      Merry Christmas everyone!

      Please pass my apreciations on to your artist. For a non-RPGer who knew nothing about MA he has knocked it out of the park.

      Size and painting will differentiate the hyena-oid from its wolfoid cousins.

      on December 25, 2015

      @Matthew, safe travels to you as well sir. It is actually a Hyena-oid. It is much smaller than a wolfoid. When we first presented that artwork to Jim for approval, he said "I like it a lot, but thats not a wolfoid!" :-) Our concept artist has done a great job, considering he does not play roleplaying games, let alone knew anything about Metamorphosis Alpha. He has just ran with the ideas we have given him over the last 6 months.

      @John/Phillip, Nice one, i see you updated the main campaign page!

      Il do one last update, lets see if we can get the "Wolfoid cousin" mini unlocked

      Good luck for the last few hrs

      @Kenny, Looks like "Wyrmipede" has made it to the main paige ;)

    43. Tom aka "Original Timmy"
      Superbacker
      on December 25, 2015

      @John/Phillip, so the $14,500 is a Frogoid!? What is "Wyrmipede" really called?

    44. John Popson 6-time creator
      Superbacker
      on December 24, 2015

      Felipe: @David I agree. That particular piece of concept art was not stage 2 developed towards the direction of creatures we wanted to create for this line. I have a feeling with the chaos of creature genetics on the Warden our Frogoids may have stronger amphibian abilities giving a stronger fish-like appearance. Perhaps a better creature term would be Amphiboids?

      on December 24, 2015

      Felipe: @Kenny We created the names with some thought that every surviving tribe would have their own name for what they see on the Warden, but we are assuming Mr. Ward may have his own ideas on the creature names.

      Felipe: @Scott not sure if I over complicated the text, but the ability to Add-On another pledge level was a "Yes" answer to your question regarding the $400 for 4x miniatures.

    47. David Crowell on December 24, 2015

      And the Frogoid, although it looks more fish than frog to me in the drawing. Kinda cute though. In a mutated "I want to eat your face" sort of way.

      @Tom - Wyrmipede, i like that better then Wurmipede. Hope Jim W likes it and it sticks :)
