Get Wave One Items for your Wave Two Rewards – but you need to do it fast

10 likes

If you missed the previous Update, read this first!

You can get Wave One rewards in exchange for the unrealized Wave Two rewards – but you will have to pay for shipping. We estimate shipping to all 5,000+ backers around the world will cost $120,000-$160,000. We’re sorry, but Palladium Books just does not have the resources to cover that expense, so if you would like to get Wave One rewards in exchange for the Wave Two rewards, we must ask you to pay for the shipping.

We will do our best to ship as inexpensively as possible, and we will only pass along our actual costs – with Palladium covering the cost of labor – but Palladium does not enjoy the steep shipping discounts of mega-corps like Amazon. Moreover, our overseas backers will have to contend with Customs fees, taxes and other costs.

Individual costs may vary substantially depending on the volume you are receiving and where it is shipping to. The size or weight of the package will also have an impact on cost. Shipping costs should not be too bad for most backers in the USA, probably averaging around $20-$35, but shipping to Canada is easily double that amount, and triple or more for overseas thanks to the nightmare that is dimensional weight.

$18-$35 in the USA is our rough estimate for most typical packages shipping within the contiguous United States of America. More to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Of course, some will be much less and some much more depending on how much you are receiving. We will pack up your rewards, weigh it all, and let you know the shipping cost BEFORE we charge your credit card and ship.

$40-$70 to Canada is our very rough estimate.

$60-$100 or more to overseas/EU/Australia is our very rough estimate.

Note: The lower numbers above are based on a 9 pound (4 kg) package consisting of one core game and one of each of the six add-on packages. The second, higher price is based on 2 core box games and one of each expansion pack; 13 pounds (just under 6 kg). We think most backers should fall in this range. Obviously, fewer items will mean a lower shipping cost. More will increase the cost.

We know this isn’t what you hoped for. And again, we are very sorry, but it is all we can offer.

Reward Exchange Details

If you want to receive Wave One rewards for Wave Two – and pay the shipping cost – this is what to do:

1. Send us a Kickstarter Message to request reward exchange.

Your absolute best method for contacting Palladium to request Wave One rewards for your Wave Two Remaining Rewards Value (RRV) is via Kickstarter Message. This not only makes it easier for us to keep track of your specific reward selections, it also lets us easily verify your identity as a backer of this project. Once we receive your message, we will provide you with your Remaining Rewards Value so that you can select the Wave One items of your choice at the RRT Kickstarter campaign values, not their current retail prices.

If for some reason you cannot send us a message through Kickstarter itself, you can email us at kickstarter@palladiumbooks.com, but it will take us extra time to verify that you are a backer, and you might need to provide additional information (e.g. your Backer Number, BackerKit Pledge Number, pledge amount, etc.) to help us do so.

If you cannot send us a Kickstarter Message or an email, you can call the office order line, 734-721-2903. However, to help eliminate confusion and ensure that we send you the correct rewards, please refrain from calling unnecessarily, except to send us your credit card information to cover shipping.

To save yourself time and to get put at the front of the line for selecting rewards that are very limited in quantity, include your reward exchange selections in your first Kickstarter Message. Calculate your own Remaining Rewards Value as follows:

Blitzkrieg Wave Two components: $23.78
Battle Cry Wave Two components: $31.76
Showdown Wave Two components: $52.94
Reckless Wave Two components: $105.88

Rick Hunter: $15.00
Roy Fokker: $15.00
Armored Valkyries: $20.00
Experimental Battloid: $20.00
SF-3A Lancer II: $20.00
QF-3000 Ghost Drone: $20.00
YF-4 Veritechs: $30.00
VEF-1/VF-1D Valkyrie Pack: $30.00
Super Valkyrie Wing: $35.00
Mk.II Monster: $40.00
Daedalus Attack Wave Two components: $112.50

Khyron Glaug Battlepod: $15.00
Miriya Queadluun-Rau Female Power Armor: $15.00
Gnerl Fighters: $15.00
Zentraedi Male Power Armor Pack: $20.00
Zentraedi Infantry: $30.00
Queadluun-Rau: $30.00
Glaug Eldare: $30.00
Glaug Eldare Squadron: $80.00

Objective Pack 1: $15.00
Objective Pack 2: $15.00
SDF-1 Resin Bases: $20.00
SDF-1: $20.00

2. Consult the list of reward exchange items below to select a number of Wave One rewards worth your Remaining Rewards Value. Any RRV left unused will be lost.

3. Send us a Kickstarter Message with your reward exchange selections. Please also include your current shipping address, just to make sure we have your correct, current address. Make sure to include your Apartment Number.

4. We will pull your reward exchange selections, pack them in a shipping carton, weigh it, and calculate the exact shipping cost. We will then send you a Kickstarter Message to let you know what that cost is.

5. Send us your credit card info (via Kickstarter Message, or by phone at 734-721-2903) and we will charge you for the shipping cost, or send a PayPal payment to paypal@palladiumbooks.com, then let us know you have sent payment.

6. Once we have received payment for shipping, we will ship your rewards, and you will receive an email with a tracking number for the package.

DEADLINE: March 20, 2018

Time is of the essence. We must hear from you as soon as possible and start shipping rewards out. In addition, we have limited inventory, so the sooner you tell us what you want and pay for shipping, the more likely you are to get the exact Wave One rewards you want. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

All Robotech® products are to be liquidated

Palladium’s license for RRT and the Robotech® RPG book series has ended. That means we will be liquidating ALL Robotech® products, starting with RRT backers who want to receive Wave One items for their Wave Two rewards.

As part of our license agreement, Palladium has a short window (from now until the end of March) to liquidate our stock of Robotech® RPG Tactics (RRT) products, Robotech® Shadow Chronicles® Role-Playing Game books, and the PDFs of the original Robotech® RPG series currently available on DriveThruRPG.com. So you must act quickly.

We will announce specific sales in the days ahead.

      For those looking to either figure out their exchange value, what they want as a refund, or the value to go after in court, you should be able to recover the full information of your final purchase in the backer kit at www.backerkit.com.

      Please note, RRT is the only Kickstarter I've ever done. So, I hadn't touched the backer kit page since back in May/June of 2012 when my paycheck came in shortly after the Kickstarter ended and I up'd my initial investment by a couple hundred dollars. So, I didn't have a clue what all I was owed until I recovered my account/password today.

      So, you can find out what you're owed, then decide what you wish to do about it.

      Okay... This is a tad disheartening... I went in big for this KS. I pledged for Double Reckless (the irony of that name now is not lost on me...) AND a lot of extras equaling total of $3,000 towards this game. By that metrics you posted, I have approximately $1,339.26 worth of credit.

      I honestly don't need over a thousand dollars worth of battlepods, Valkyries and Battloids. ESPECIALLY if I have to pay for shipping and handling considering I left military a few months ago and am currently unemployed.

      If it is true that Kickstarter Terms and Conditions require refunds, that is the route I would like to pursue.

      if anyone is opting for the wave 1 replacement options do not forget you have already paid for shipping, the decision to split it into waves was at no cost to the backers so they can not ask for shipping again. PB can ask ND to help them with the costs in their commitment to you & Robotech :/ It is worth asking PB to honor this not that they have any honor.

      31/01/14 January update
      Splitting the Kickstarter shipments into two waves will cost us more money, but Palladium Books and Ninja Division are willing to eat those extra costs to get this great product into your hands. We are committed to Robotech® and you.

      Andrew Gil on

      I would like a refund, as required by the Kickstarter Terms and Conditions for unfulfilled projects. Since you are losing the license to Robotech IP, you cannot legally fulfill your promises to backers, and you have already admitted you're not going to try. Also, you cannot make us pay to access an alternative for something you already owe us, shipping included. Prepare for a bankruptcy-inducing class-action lawsuit from your backers if you don't offer refunds.

      You’re collection looks rather splendid. Love the Cat’s Eye Recons and the Lancers. It’s a shame you wouldn’t want to keep putting out your Shapeways stuff, as it looks marvelous. I don’t have nearly as much of my Robotech pile painted, but being retired, I’ve got all the time in the world (except when my wife issues honey-do lists). Cheers. And thanks again for sharing.

      John Harrison on

      Ok so first - International backer, why the hell should I pay more than you are offering me for my Showdown remainder (plus my add ons). By my rough math you're offering just over $120 for what i've got remaining and are saying I could pay $100 for shipping plus still be on the line to pay customs duty (which could easily run over $50). Seems a bit - bullshit to me.

      Secondly my Showdown pledge was advertised as 2x a Battlecry, but whatever messed up method you have put together to determine the value of the remainder means it's worth less than double a battlecry???

      Do these numbers include the 2 Ricks and Roys that are part of my Showdown? Because i'd rather have them valued individually as a single Rick and Roy is worth almost as much as a Battlecry (just over a dollar difference? Really? They are really undervaluing the remaining models arent they?)

      I have kept quiet on this whole fiasco for years, hoping that after getting the shaft when wave 1 came out that perhaps palladium would do right by the international backer and treat us as human beings not funny foreign money (it all spends the same just ours it turns out costs us even more for the same stuff).

      Why are they trying to screw us so hard, if they have to liquidate and empty the warehouse by the end of March then they should at least give us as good of an offer as the original KS if not better to burn away some of the Wave 1 stock they overproduced on killing any chance of wave 2!

      This is a god damn joke!

    44. TwoGunBob on

      @Mario Mora Well, kind of. You have to work through Kevin's fuzzy math of how items he didn't produce are worth like 10% of retail but the stuff he did produce is valued at 100% retail value and then figure your shipping. If your head hurts, it's because this whackadoodle offer is garbage.

    45. Mario Mora on

      I just pledged for ONE Rick Hunter model... that was it. This all makes Brexit look like afternoon tea on a sunny day. So, because I have read the above multiple times, does this mean that those on the initial wave, that got moved to the second wave, can now pick the reward from the first wave to replace whatever reward was on the second wave?
