      From this Kickstarter (under FAQ's):

      "How many of the 40th Anniversary Edition will you produce?

      The number of the the Voyager Golden Record: 40th Anniversary Edition vinyl box sets we produce will be based on the final number of pledges for the vinyl box set when the Kickstarter ends. We don't have any firm plans beyond the Kickstarter, but we won't produce any more of this 40th Anniversary Edition that we are offering here after we complete the Kickstarter fulfillment! Thank you!

      Just to highlight:

      Your website is currently offering the EXACT SAME box-set that was released here.

      @TudorAndreiStanciou I guess all the backers who filled their addresses late will go to the end of the queue of the shipments.

      I too am somewhat disappointed that our investment is not truly a "limited edition ". My interest in this project was greatly influenced by the idea that the recordings and graphs would be unique and collectible. Now to find that a "new" edition is available is leaves me with the proverbial "bad taste " in my mouth....

      $70 for shipping and no tracking number? That does not sound right. Can we get some more info on the shipment status and methods, please?

      I thought that this was going to be a limited edition, but now you are saying you are producing a new edition. From the campaign, it was stated: "... this limited edition Voyager Golden Record: 40th Anniversary Edition vinyl box set will only be available through this Kickstarter." Yet, now you have a vinyl box set on your website. I thought I was backing a limited edition but doesn't sound so limited now. Care to explain?

      So they're going to arrive sometime in September? Awesome, I'm glad I backed this. Just in time for my mom's birthday! :D

      Hi guys - I just managed to fill in the delivery address (I had another e-mail connected to the Kickstarter account than thought). What happens for addresses filled in late?

      Can we have a Picture of where exactly the pin is? I don't want to accidentally miss it and throw it out with the packing material.

    10. Kiran on

      USPS, UPS, FedEx or DHL?
      It's a real good question!

      Can you tell us what method is being used to deliver. .. usps,ups or fedex. I too live in a hot climate and the thought of my vinyl i have been waiting for for so long sitting out in the august sun with no tracking number to know if it is troubles me.

      I order a lot of vinyl lps that get damaged with seam splits in shipping. What are you going to do to prevent that? Ship the lps outside the main jacket? Thanks

      @Beh Kok Seng : Yes, of course, I understand there are delays. Many of my backed projects delivered late or are currently late. But as far as I can remember for here, there has never been any indication that this one would be late. They've stuck to the August delivery date this entire time. I don't recall any comment like, "sorry, but delivery might slip into September." Therefore, I think it's reasonable to expect on-time delivery, and this update doesn't really provide the kind of shipping status update I was expecting when shipping was supposed to have started a week ago. I'm not disappointed in the project or anything, but I do think the communication here could be a bit better.

      Hey guys, is it possible to read an excerpt of a chapter of the book ? Just to keep us waiting.
      I read tim's article. It was great :)

    15. Jurriaan Wittenberg on

      A bit sad that we don't get tracking info (specifically for international shipments). Not a clue now when to expect this as shipping can take 1-4 weeks from US to EU ... we don't know what kind of quality shipping or expedited shipping was used. Also 1-4 weeks as they go out so we have to wait 2 months before we start being certain that stuff hasn't arrived. A bit more info on the process and expectations would be welcome. I've been in too many KS projects where everything went right and failed at the delivery stage. So, sorry if I sound a bit salty. Considering 70$ was payed for shipping I really hoped to get that tracking info.

    16. Mart Ryan on

      Pre-order the new edition? How is it new and or different from the original ? I thought these were limited to the project run? Are you now mass producing them ? Thanks.

      Fantastic news! Can't wait!

      Would there be any possibility of those of us in extremely warm climates to request tracking in advance? I am a bit nervous that the vinyl will not fair well out in the sun and heat.

      @James M. Come on. You should understand that Kickstarter projects are usually have some minor or major issues during their manufacturing and thus there may have some delays. I have some long delays on my pledges before. Sometimes some never delivered at all due to the address was never filled in properly by the sender after I've checked that my survey have the proper address to my home.

      I must say this project has been very exciting for me since its beginning. I truly feel like I'm part of a very special collection of individuals... and history too!! I'm not only honored to be a part of this project, I'm also very excited about the arrival of my boxed sets. These will definitely be family heirlooms handed down for many generations.

      That is one great looking box! Can't wait to receive mine!

      "As mentioned, it will take approximately 3 to 4 weeks from now to carefully pack and ship all the boxes." Right, and you said shipping should have started on the 16th, if I'm not mistaken. That was a week ago. Shouldn't something like 25-33% of the shipments have gone out already? If that's not the case, it would appear that you're behind schedule. I thought you'd have a more specific status update than this; in terms of shipping progress, I don't think there's anything really new here, despite being only ~1 week away from delivering late. :/
