Molded parts ship from China, Angel proto pics, 3d printed color kits

Posted by Go Go Dynamo (Creator)

Mo is on the move!

This is a HUGE day for ModiBot and YOU helped make it happen! 

All the figures and molded Venture accessory sets were loaded onto a truck from our vendor in China today! They will be making the trip via air and landing on US soil some time in the next few days and delivering directly to Providence. We'll be sorting the parts and begin shipping items starting October 5th.

We'll be shipping in 3 waves starting with people who ordered mostly molded kits. This includes, those of you in the $15, $20 and $50 levels. Second will be backers with mostly white accessories. This will include $35, and $500 packages. And last, but certainly not least, is the largest chunk of you who ordered a variety of 3d printed accessory kits in all the various color options. We expect to be finished shipping all the items by Halloween.

We're planning a ModiBot Preview Party for anyone who can make it to the Providence area in mid-October. You'll be able to hang with other backers and supporters, see all the kits in person, and (if we haven't shipped them already) have the opportunity to grab your goodies along with some libations. More details to come about the date and venue.

Angelic reception at NY Maker Faire

We had a great show at NY maker Faire. It was great to talk to those of you who made it out. Kids were building with all the demo parts, we sold through the small batch of kits that we brought, and got to get the word out about what is to come.

One big highlight was people's reception of the new Angel prototype that we had on display. Everyone wanted it, but will have to wait until you've all got your kits in-hand.

Here are a couple shots of the model. He's really huge and the wing poseability is great.

Upcoming color kit order

I just started building Anubis this morning, so you should see pics of the model in the next update. I'll be ordering a set of prelim parts to check his fit and finish by friday. Once I review those parts, I'll be putting in the final order for all the 3d printed accessory sets (this'll be the final 1/3 of the total items). Mo is also working on his own small surprise token of appreciation that will be included in all orders.

Tick, Tock.....

Nearly all of you have gotten your surveys in, but there are 5 of you left that still need to let me know your color choices. I can't ship you something, if I don't know what you want, so I'll be contacting you directly this week with a reminder and a new link to your various surveys. Please keep and eye for it.

Thanks again for helping to make this happen. We can't thank you enough.

      I'm excited.

      My Stikfas and Xevoz figures are apprehensive about the competition.
