Risks and challenges

While we have taken great lengths to ensure a smooth production process, it is possible that there may be delays. Typical board game production may face delays due to manufacturing, holidays, weather, shipping and customs. With this ambitious project we have the additional challenge of producing a high quality collectible figure that warrants display space on your shelf. These challenges may include mold/tooling issues, paint application errors, safety testing and others. To limit this risk we have met with manufacturers in person in China and the US to verify their capabilities and quality. However, the final look, contents and materials may differ from what is presented during the campaign in order to deliver the final product to backers.

As avid Kickstarter backers ourselves, we appreciate transparency and communication above all else. As such, we will ensure that you are informed of our progress and challenges every step of the way.

Please note that in offering backers the ability to choose their characters we need your cooperation in confirming your pledge and selections in a timely manner to build appropriately. If you do not confirm your pledge within 6 weeks of email notification, we may not be able to deliver your first selection. After the 6 week window has past we will try to fulfill your pledge as best we can but may need to substitute with available inventory.

Thank you very much for your support!
