To begin, thank you so much for your support of Munchkin Bricks!
Fulfilling this Kickstarter has been a satisfying, challenging, exciting adventure and has forced my to "up my game" as far as my shipping and tracking systems and should result in even easier and more efficient fulfillment for all my future projects at CrazyBricks.
By now, most of you have already gotten your various goodies to share and hoard and play with - and some of you are patiently waiting by your mail boxes.
This week marks the last of the shipment/postage labels printed out, and as you read this 99% of the packages have been labeled, stuffed, inventoried and delivered to the post office for delivery.
There are two small exceptions to this rule...
#1 About 8 of your didn't get your Zombie Gingerbread Men and have a note within your package ( along with a little surprise ) letting you know that your Zombie friend should ship to you next month in a separate shipment.
#2 About 25-30 of you have packages that are fully packed and ready to ship with the exception of one printed item that I came up short on in my production estimate. Not to worry, these items are being printed and should be in my hands by middle of the week and out the door with your shipment.
Sorry for the wait, I didn't catch the shortage until the week before last and I immediately set about getting more for our fulfillment supply.
Can I order more Munchkin Bricks?
The priority has been in fulfillment of Kickstarter supporters to the exception of all other concerns. You guys come first!
There will be a special 'Smokey Translucent' Color edition ( you may have even been one of the lucky folks who got a few examples of these in your freebies.. ) of Munchkin Bricks available at Warehouse23 ( www.warehouse23.com )
Soon some over-run sets of Munchkin Bricks from the Kickstarter campaign will show up at the official CrazyBricks site ( www.crazybricks.com ). I'll contact everyone when this goes live.
I am also pursuing future sales distribution with a number of distribution companies and these should be available towards the 3rd Quarter of 2015.
Hey, How Does that Dragon work?
Our dragon is RIGHT-handed only! Remove your minifig's Right hand, put the cap perfectly flush with the figure's wrist and GENTLY push the dragon's 'cap' on to the forearm of your figure - sometimes it helps to spin the dragon a tiny bit clockwise - and then let your dragon seat fully upon the end of the arm before you replace the hand. Just be patient and non-Incredible Hulk and it will got on just right.
NOTE - Some minifigs appear to have minutely larger forearms than standard, these might take a tad more patience to seat properly.
Hey, these rubber horns don't let me stab myself! One even popped out!
Our stretch-goal Spyke helmet is an very safe and a very awesome thing. You guys voted on it and it won as our stretch goal reward. It is an extreme design that probably no one else would be mad enough to realize at this scale with rubber horns, but that is what makes it special!
I am currenttly describing the helmet as a KIT in that I encourage you to add a very small dash of crazy glue (it doesn't take much) if you want the horns to remain in permanently for high-handling use such as a game pawn accessory. If you are just putting it on display then you needn't worry.
BRICK FIESTA! - Come visit me!
Brick Fiesta 2015 - the premier LEGO® fan event in Texas - is being held in Austin, Texas with public hours on July 25 from 10 AM to 4 PM and July 26 from 10 AM to 3 PM. http://www.brickfiesta.com/
I will be there as the Guest Speaker! We will talk about Steampunk and Iron Builder and CrazyBricks and all kinds of neat stuff!
I'll also have a CrazyBricks table so come by and grab a copy of Steampunk LEGO and I'll be happy to sign it.
LEGO Munchkin Game Board! (work-in-progress...)
Yep, I am making one! It should be ready by the time of BrickFiesta in Austin and I am going to see if we can work out some opportunities for some folks to play on it at the event! It is minifig scale and will be populated with all kinds of fantastic creatures and Munchkin-y details.
I can't say it enough, thank you guys for all of your encouragement, patience and support with this project. Last year was full of some terrible personal losses for me and projects like this one were the little beacons of light that helped shine the way past my challenges. I thank you all for giving me your trust and support and the opportunity to work so hard for you.
You Munchkins are an awesome group, but I wouldn't turn my back on ANY of you with a sharp dagger in your hands..... hey, here's an idea,, why don't you pick up that Duck over there?
Best Wishes Guy
