      I have not forgotten- it's just turned out to be much, much more work than planned and I've had other commitments and difficulties that have gotten in the way. I'm not pulling any nonsense and appreciate no one sending thugs to my house.

      Hi Richard, with the second anniversary of the projects funding coming up do you have any plans to ever ship the outstanding rewards?

      Richard,

      what is up... at least report on the status of what is going on.

      Almost 4 months since the last promise to deliver the Legos. Are the remaining items to be delivered from this kickstarter even on your radar at this point?

      Hi,

      Just checking if the prints have shipped yet? My address detaisl in Aus haven't changed, but I'm still waiting on mine. Any update would be appreciated, thanks!

      I have a backup on Dropbox that should work as long as a million people don't use the link:

      Back in May you said you were going to make it possible to re-download the books for people that had lost their copies. Is this still happening?

      Creator Heisjustauser on September 3, 2013

      Dude,

      its not really having to wait, which may slightly annoy some of us... it is the lack of updates. Even a monthly list of things which need still to be done would be nice to know whether one missed a shipment...

    9. Selfportrait175.small

      Creator Richard Stevens on September 1, 2013

      I promise, you will get those Legos. I made the mistake of really, really, really stupidly overscheduling myself last year and am finally almost out from under it. There will be no hat-eating required, just apologies on my part for the delay.

      Creator baldnate on September 1, 2013

      ... Lego update?

      In reality, I'm just assuming that I'm not going to get my Lego sculpture, and that makes me sad. Given that you seem to be a workaholic with regards to everything else, I've only got a couple guesses on what is holding things up:

      1. Legal issues involving the use of Star Wars material.
      2. No interest in fulfilling the remaining rewards.

      But hey, I'll eat my electronic hat... if I ever get my Lego sculpture in the mail.

      Creator Michael Ward on June 20, 2013

      Some sort of update on outstanding items would be really nice, especially the Legos.

      Dude, some heads up about the progress with posters and stuff really would be appreciated... it has been more than a year now since the end of the kickstarter. Maybe you should consider doing some progress bar like OOTS ;)

      Creator Richard Stevens on March 15, 2013

      Yup! I have really underestimated what it takes to do a couple hundred mostly different prints.

      Hoping to get back into all the prints and Lego bits next week. I started before Christmas but Christmas got completely out of hand. I think the recession ended and nobody warned me. ;)

      @baldnate Fingers crossed, I can start on Legos and prints in about a week. I only just barely managed to get all the books done before Comicon/moving/wedding armageddon blew a hole in my summer. Haven't forgotten, though!

      @John Fiala You should have had it in your Kickstarter inbox back in July. Message me if it's not there and I'll relink.

      Creator Tarwin Stroh-Spijer on April 11, 2012

      Yeah, sorry about pointing it out - my eagle eyes always make looking at not-quite-perfect images a bad experience. I'm sure for 99% of people it would be fine. (I have trouble watching Netflix sometimes if that gives you an idea)

    30. Selfportrait175.small

      Creator Richard Stevens on April 11, 2012

      Argh. I'm seeing it now. More bugs to fix!

    31. Selfportrait175.small

      Creator Richard Stevens on April 11, 2012

      The iBooks software fights to use jpgs for some insane reason unless you trick it with transparent images. My older iBooks were done before the current update. Not sure which book you're looking at. Any mush is unintentional.

    32. Avatar.small

      Creator Tarwin Stroh-Spijer on April 11, 2012

      Sweet - tried the iBook download on my brand spanking new iPad 3. Looks amazing ...

      except ...

      Is there any reason you're using JPG compression instead of PNG? It's not very noticeable (even to my eagle eyes) but, when you get red, it starts to look all horrid murky.

      Loved the last question on the survey.
      For some reason using "n/a" didn't come to mind, just "There is no other, only Zuul". O_O
