The cut-off for the first-day reward was backer #1400. If your backer number is before that, you're guaranteed to get the reward (if you pledged the $12+ tiers).
The reward was meant as a thank you for early supporters- the people who helped us fund in less than three hours, the people who spread the word far and wide and brought more ducks to our flock. I feel it would be unfair to them to allow the duckie minion miniatures to be sold as add ons. In addition, I will be hand-assembling each of these minions. To prevent delaying fulfillment for everyone, we need to keep the number manageable! I only have the two hands <3
As a compromise, I will do a timelapse video showing the assembly of the minions and show you how to make your own!
