Final pack out: Over 3/4 shipped!, delay for some red prints, Bravest Chris issues, countdown to holidays

Posted by Go Go Dynamo (Creator)

Lot's happening the last few weeks. We are coming down to the home stretch! The last round of or ding and shipment has been B-U-M-P-Y. For those of you who frequent Kickstarter, you know that things get messy sometimes during the shipping process. Now I see why/how it happens.

The awesome news! More than 3/4 of backer packs have shipped at this point. The majority of folks with color accessory sets (about 90-ish) went out on friday, so many of you will get packages in the mail early this week. There are about 62 kits still waiting to ship for reasons I discuss below.

The not-so-awesome news- I'm really trying to be sure we get everything else out asap, but we've also had some mishaps that are slowing things down. This past weekend, I pre-packed every envelope to understand exactly what I have and don't' have. Here's a quick status/plan to get the last grouping out to you-

  • White angels/viking pick-up parts- White angels, white vikings had some misplaced parts which I caught somewhat early. There are about 8 packages that will ship next week when I get the replacement part in hand.
  • Blue and purple Spyborgs- After packout, I realized that some of the color spyborg kits were missing visors. Most have shipped, but I'll be sending the part in a secondary mailing to complete your sets. This will happen next week, as well. 
  • Curse of Red Anubis- Red kits have had some tough luck, I completely misordered a full batch of red items and a second red batch was missing some parts. So, I needed to reorder parts to complete each set (in some cases, I'm holding a full order because of one missing part). Judging from current timing, I'd say that we're on track for mid-Decemeber shipment of the very last batch of items. I know some of you have intended your items as a holiday gifts. If so, please let me know and I will send what I have and follow-up with the missing parts. Contact me directly at mo@modibot.com

**Bravest Chris figure backers**- For a lack of foresight on my part, its not possible for me to ship the Bravest Chris accessory sets. I've sent all of you an email directly to explain the situation and possible solutions. Please check your email/spam boxes for the email. In most cases, I can ship you an alternate solution immediately. 

Friends and Family holiday gifting- ModiBot.com is finally up-and-running. In the last batch of backer shipments, I provided a coupon code for 20% off your entire purchase. I wanted to be sure that all backers were able to get the same benefit. Feel free to share this code with friends and family. COUPON CODE is- kickback  The offer is good until Dec 20th.

Ordering accessory sets- For now, the ModiBot shop mostly sells Mo figure packs, the blue/black venture accessory sets and a few select printed accessory sets. If you'd like to order accessory sets, you can get them made-to-order at our Shapeways store. Many of the larger creature, armor and character sets offered during the campaign are available there, as well. 

As always, thank you all for helping to bring Mo to life. I've been getting a lot of tweets, FB posts, and emails showing your figure builds. Please keep sending them along, I'd like to feature them in a special page on the site.

Best,

Wayne
