Robots: Deploy!

7 comments

Hopefully you've got your USB Red Robots by now. I have a few stragglers to ship because of address problems, but otherwise they are all working their way around the globe. International orders may be a couple more weeks depending on overzealous customs inspectors.

If you need a hand with anything, please drop me a line via the Kickstarter messaging system or at dieselsweeties@mac.com. I have some spare robots put aside for packages that got lost in the mail. I haven't finished prints, Legos, or any of the other big rewards yet. I just barely got through all the ebook stuff before Comicon. (ow, my brain)

I'm collecting photos of the robots in the wild if you'd like to share one! See you with more ebooks soon!

PS: If you wish to take pity on a friend who missed this Kickstarter, they can get a robot for more than you paid here. (wink emoticon of supreme smugness)

HUGS FOREVER
