King of Evil Dragons Update #7
A few bits of miscellanea, first addressing the end of pre-orders and the second addressing the last update and concerns over the legs of the KoED.
Pre-Orders end July 6 at Midnight; then open to the public
We've received about a dozen add-on orders from backers here and at our other Kickstarter projects. Since people have had plenty of time to add-on, we'll be CLOSING discounted pre-orders at $99.95 at Midnight on July 6th. If you want to add a KoED or missed out during the KS, please remit $99.95 (+ $5.95 US Shipping, $15.95 international) and we'll reserve one for you. Funds should be sent via PayPal to email@example.com.
The remaining 98 King of Evil Dragons models will then be available for public pre-order at $119.95 each plus free shipping. Retail price will be $179.95-$199.95 depending on the final size of the model, assuming there are any left once pre-orders to the general public are closed.
All Kickstarter orders will ship first, and the publicly pre-ordered models will then begin shipping shortly thereafter.
Take a good look at the King and the leg size
If you take a good look at the original drawing for the King of Evil Dragons, the legs and feet don't look too far off. Sculptor Drew Williams, aware of backers concerns, offered the following today via email:
"...the compromise was not about size (proportion), but angle; the feet needed to be made and angled forward to support the form. But otherwise (the dragon was designed) with feet the same size as the heads and the chest, and indeed made the thighs quite spindly. In short, (backers will) feel much happier when they see it assembled."
Hope all of our US backers had a Happy 4th of July!
