      Yeah, I never got anything either, despite being advised that it was shipped twice. At this point I've just written it off.

    2. Creator Jay Beavers on October 8, 2014

      Still no posters for me :-(

    3. Creator Rohan on May 18, 2013

      @Alden - Good to hear that some of the posters are making it out :)
      Seems a bit odd that the sponsors page was never updated, would have thought that would be the least work of the project.

    4. Creator Alden Coleman on April 16, 2013

      I received two posters on 17 April 2013, Estimated delivery: May 2012. The extra poster was nice. I still see no sponsors on the http://mech-warfare.com/sponsors.html page.

      Thanks for following through Andrew.

    5. Creator Bill McIntyre on February 24, 2013

      Any word from Andrew since summer?

      I don't think that any of the rewards have been delivered; website links, posters, in-arena signs, etc.

      I contacted the original artist for the commissioned poster, Søren Bendt, and requested a high resolution download of the art file. http://sonobeno.blogspot.com/2012/03/mech-warfare-poster.html

      While the artist is unable to provide a high resolution image of the poster, he has put me in contact with the individual who commissioned the piece from him.

    7. Creator Alden Coleman on February 6, 2013

      69 posters. That was all that was committed, if I'm reading the rewards page correctly.

      I don't even see any sponsors listed at http://mech-warfare.com/sponsors.html

      Have any of the reward levels at all been delivered?

    8. Creator Rohan on December 26, 2012

      @Alden - Sadly looks like it...
      I also had a look at the website for any further info and it looks like it hasn't been updated in a while.

    9. Creator Alden Coleman on December 10, 2012

      I'm guessing the posters have gone vaporware?

    10. Creator Rohan on October 23, 2012

      Any updates?

    11. Creator Alden Coleman on September 7, 2012

      Ah good. I was worried. Cool beans.

    12. Creator Andrew Alter on August 6, 2012

      Hey Lem! We ran into some pretty major budget issues in terms of going way over. Everything is sorted now and I'm getting ready to ship out the goodies very soon. I just finished uploading the huge gallery for this year's Mech Warfare, expect an official update this week with status updates on everything.

    13. Creator Lem Fugitt on August 6, 2012

      Just wondering what the current schedule is for the deliverables, like the website mentions/links, posters, etc. Could you give us an update?

    14. Creator Rohan on April 15, 2012

      Congrats on a successful project :) Is there any update on how things are progressing?

    15. Creator Alexander Dietrich on April 6, 2012

      All systems nominal, congratulations!

    16. Creator Artorios Rex on April 5, 2012

      Agreed with Paul Gentile about street-level bot cameras. If you can add real-time processing to the feeds, adding a bunch of telemetry data to the edges of the feed--as if it were a real mech cockpit--would be keen! E.g. speed, heading, ammo remaining, health status (??), an enemy radar, fuel (power) remaining...

    17. Creator Soren Jensen on April 5, 2012

      Congrats! Well done!

    18. Creator Andrew Alter on March 28, 2012

      Hey Paul-

      We have a competition at Shepherd University which is near DC. Not quite east coast but close!

      We actually had a hexapod robot with a camcorder strapped to it getting a lot of video for us the last two years. I'll probably build a smaller wheeled bot for the purpose though- thanks for reminding me!

    19. Creator Paul Gentile on March 28, 2012

      Love it! We need an east coast league now.

      I love when your videos are from the "street level." It would be awesome if you can record the bots video feeds and display them during the competition. How about having some "News bots" in the arena - small little robots that act like video reporters, just running around getting video of the action from the "street level" point of view.

    20. Creator Robert Lam on March 23, 2012

      Congratulation on your success!

    21. Creator Justin Treon on March 21, 2012

      You may want to add a $5 donation option. I do not think a lot of people know that you can just crank the $1 donation up to $5.

    22. Creator Andrew Alter on March 12, 2012

      r060t, you're in the same boat as most of us involved with Mech Warfare. We all dreamed of giant robots and are doing our best in making it a reality. Thanks for your support!

    23. Creator Joshua Robot on March 12, 2012

      This is the type of thing I used to dream of when skipping English class to work on a robot. I wish you luck and hope to see this at the next games!
