      Ah - the universe has a sense of humor. Got my box today - it was mailed one day before my previous post. Thanks guys - it looks amazing.

      Did ANY of the $200 backers get a box? As of Aug 6th, 2012, mine has not arrived. Just wondering if any of the 'customized piece' people received anything.

      Nope. I've been assuming we'd never get the triggers. This has been a very disappointing Kickstarter project.

      Has anyone who also backed the Trebuchet project gotten their triggers from this project? I sent an e-mail but received no response.

    6. Mark Guidarelli on July 14, 2012

      I am still waiting as well, no response to several emails.

    7. Loretta on July 14, 2012

      I guess I'm the only fool still waiting for the blocklets... Gabe and Mark haven't even responded to my multiple messages... Anyone else in my shoes?

    8. Mark Guidarelli on May 30, 2012

      Well the laser cutters are in use, but not for blocklets... Gabe and Mark how about a status update for your remaining backer?

      Finally received mine in the UK £20.47 customs charge. Also.. why does mine smell like bacon?

    10. Ashley Barry on May 16, 2012

      Don't hold you breath, i'm a $100 backer in the UK and still nothing arrived, although they "claim" it was shipped a month ago... nothing from customs and nothing to show for my money. Even eBay has a dispute system.

    11. Mark Guidarelli on May 13, 2012

      Have any of the other $200 pledger receive anything? I have sent message asking status but have heard beck from them...

    12. Martin Rix on May 9, 2012

      Just received mine today! Happy to have it at last!

      A heads up to UK backers: I had to pay a Customs charge of £20.47. I'm not sure when they decide to charge as I've only had to pay it twice in my life. (The charge is VAT @ 20% + an £8 handling fee.)

      Mark and Gabe,

      You know, I feel like I've been extrodinarily patient waiting. I realize these things tale a while to complete - but my good will is really starting to expire here.

      @ozymandias and @mathnut, good idea. A little transparency about where, exactly, things stand in working off the backlog to backers would be really great.

      On the other hand, I'm beginning to have morbid curiosity as to how looooooooong it will take to actually get my blocklets. Like slowing down when you see a car crash on the highway. I feel icky. Gabe, Mark, crickets?

      I'm also curious how many remain to ship. That may be a good topic for an update ;-). I would be *very* interested to see how many have shipped, how many remain, an idea how many ship each week, what a week (or days) load looks like stacked up and waiting to get mailed, etc.

    17. mathnut on February 9, 2012

      Out of curiosity, how many kits are left to ship? I'm still waiting for mine. :(.

      Hi there -- again, have you shipped yet?

    19. Richard Commodore on January 19, 2012

      I haven't recieved a thing. Did you ship yet?

    20. Gabe & Mark Creator on December 28, 2011

      We will send out the trebuchette triggers in a separate mailing. They will be small and light enough to fit in a envelope and shipping should be pretty cheap for us. We need to tweak the trigger design to work with the latest Trebuchette design, but we don't want to spend time doing that until we are done with our main project. It's on the back-burner, but it's not forgotten.

      I almost hate to bring this up, but: Trebuchette triggers?

    22. Gabe & Mark Creator on December 23, 2011

      Thanks for early feedback! We're still working on getting everyone their kits, but our goal of getting everything done by holidays is not going to happen. We've also got a pretty major announcement coming in an update this weekend.

    23. Brice Webster on December 23, 2011

      Mine arrived today. I am very pleased with it as well. The packaging was a lot nicer than I expected which is awesome. None of my pieces were broken or chipped and my box looks amazing. I am actually afraid to play around with it because it is so nice. When you starting selling more to the public I'll just pick up a little kit so I can play with those. Overall I am impressed great job you two.:D

    24. Brian Connelly on December 22, 2011

      Wow. I have to say y'all delivered. Received today and I have to say I am proud to give it as a gift. Congratulations for getting it done and despite setbacks doing it well! Good job.

    25. Gabe & Mark Creator on December 14, 2011

      Thanks for sticking up for us John but Brian has a point we should post more often. My goal is to post an update of accomblishments at least every other day until we are through with all the orders for our Kickstarter backers. See updates for today's post.

      Again thanks John for sticking up for us. Thanks Brian for helping us see clearly, we owe everything to our backers, and we need to keep them informed.

      @Brian, awfully harsh to call this project a failure because they were silent for a few weeks during a holiday time of year.

      Hi M&G, I hope you received note of my new address!

    28. Brian Connelly on December 12, 2011

      From your Oct 18th Message "Sorry if it looked like we dropped off the face of the earth" I'm now thinking you did drop off since that message --- WOW -- what a way help your supporters lose more faith.

    29. Brian Connelly on December 12, 2011

      I think all projects should take note. I believe this project should be considered a major Failure at this point. I understand one is not "Ordering" a product when contributing via kickstarter but rather helping a startup/new venture etc and for the help/funds we are supposed to get a inside view so as to learn from the projects success and failures -- it seems we are getting none of this. Sure it is disappointing if you thought you were going to have X gizmo by X-mas or whatever but -- that's not the problem. The problem is lack and effort of the updates -- Do not say it is because you are too busy -- that is just an excuse for lack of commitment from the team! Not sure what path I should take on this -- but it is quite a let down.

    30. Brian Connelly on December 3, 2011

      Wow ... Feeling like We have been left out in the cold. How about a real update and not a promise for more updates. Would love to learn from your progress or lack there of.

    31. Skyland Games on October 26, 2011

      Thanks guys. Weekly updates are much appreciated. They don't even have to be long, just let us know the latest news.

    32. Gabe & Mark Creator on October 18, 2011

      Sorry if it looked like we dropped off the face of the earth. Though you have been on our minds daily, as we have worked out assorted issues, you would have never know that by our communication. We will do better and post updates weekly.

      Any updates on what has been shipped and whats up next?

    34. Brian Connelly on October 11, 2011

      Not to beat a dead or dying horse --- but the spirit of the kickstarter was to have some Transparency --- however this is not the case. Good or Bad lets have some updates with some details. Show us where the pain is or show us the units.

      Eagerly awaiting information. The guys at the trebuchet have done an amazing job of keeping the information coming regarding the status. It would be nice to see a status update once in a while...

    38. Brian Connelly on August 17, 2011

      Yes--- waiting on an update --- what is the current status?
      Sponsoring minds would like to know....
