We had about thirty supporters take advantage of our shipping offer, with a few even coming in this week. We have shipped all of and anyone who has paid for extra shipping at this point. As you can tell by the comments, many have already received their packages over the past weeks.
We also put together a large shipment to the USA yesterday. The line continues to move toward getting everything shipped.
We have about twenty boxes prepared to be shipped with the final thirty packages now typed into invoices and ready to pull. Once these are pulled we will have all the packages ready to go. It will just be a matter of getting them out of here.
We contacted several people who have not finalized their pledges. Most of these were Insanity or Paranoia add-ons that we need specific information to fulfill. If this is you, you should have received a pm from us on this Kickstarter site. Please reply with the items you would like added to your pledges.
We continue to move forward and we thank you for your patience.
We would like to thank all our supporters of this kickstarter.
At this point we have worked through to the point were we have about 125 people left to ship. We have all the product packaged and ready to ship for these orders. We got the final 90 Mother Hydra pieces cast and packaged no problem. However, we have long ago run out of money for this Kickstarter. As you can imagine with the sculpting issues we had, the resin sculpts coming in over priced, the extra metal required and the change in the dollar and shipping prices since we ran this kickstarter the money is long gone.
We are not complaining.
We will certainly ship everyone of you all the parcels you deserve. That is the deal we made and we honor our word. However, at this point in time we are shipping your orders based on the money that we can pull out of our cash flow, or any extra money we have. This makes the process slow and we know you have been waiting a very long time for your goods.
So we wish to propose an offer to those supporters left who have not received there goods.
Basically the cost for shipping a box to the USA is $15. Overseas it is about $25 to Europe and $50 to Australia. We know these numbers because we have already shipped boxes of the same relative size to these locals.
So here is our offer.
Anyone wishing to have their product shipped within the next two weeks can pay for your shipping. If you pay for your own shipping we will send you an extra package of 2922 Deep Ones (which is the three deep ones pictured below). We have this product made and ready to go with your order. We can ship ASAP no problem if you take this deal.
If you wish to take us up on this offer just send the proper amount of money thru Paypal to brock @ rafm.com. Put a note on the payment as to what it is for (The COC Kickstarter Shipping) and your name and address and your KS id or name if it is different.
As stated, you do not have to take us up on this offer and we will definitely ship your package. It may just take some time for us to be able to ship.
We make this offer as a way to get this product to you sooner.
Again thanks for your support and patience.
We are working on putting together a large shipment to the USA supporters that did not order Mother Hydra, total 26 supporters.
We are working thru thirty International supporters to ship that do not have Mother Hydra in their pledges. Ten of these are shipped and twenty are left.
Shipping prices have changed since two years ago when we charged you for shipping. That coupled with the total weight of metal (which we did not have an accurate count when planning this KS). This total weight in your packages makes shipping expensive today. Not complaining, just disclosure. So shipping is an ongoing process.
We just received the Mother Hydra model. This is a great thing. Our plan was to replace the Mother Hydra model in the final shipment, in order to keep people from waiting, as it had not shown up here. We did ship three backers with replacement parts in them. These people will receive their Mother Hydra because now it has shown up. The Mother Hydra model has been mastered and a production mold created, so we need to cast 90 models and package them, so we can ship this piece along with the rest of the package to the people who have ordered them.
This will not interfere with the shipping schedule but we will be shipping anyone who ordered the Mother Hydra piece in the final wave of shipping.
Again thanks for your patience. This has been a long arduous process, filled with bumps along the way, but we will get you your figures, all your figures.
