Have a question?
The deluxe Series is now funded! Hop on over and get in on the action if you haven't done so already. 38 figures guaranteed with the All in backing level! Thane is Freed!
Hey everyone, if you haven't already done so, check out the deluxe AWOK going on right now. It is so close to funding and the Tribe needs your help!
I'm sorry did I read that right? You're not doing critters and weapon packs from here on out? So if we get the ones we initially paid for we won't be able to buy more in the future?
@Justin please message us your address so we can send you a replacement
Just opened my Pale figure and he has 2 left hands. What can be done?
@Evan - we totally understand, and are always trying to learn and improve which is why will not be offering items like Crittera and weapons sets after those items have been fufilment.
I really want to pledge on the new KS but I won't with open items still not delivered on this one.
Hi Paul... Cruelor didn't get funded until the backerkit.
I may have missed something BUT why is Cruelor on your website but not here?
@Jason - Thanks for the update. Just to clarify, any other figures we may be missing will also be sent out once the shipment comes in and all the details are worked out? It's just, seeing the figures on your webstore go from available to sold out one by one certainly brings a smile to my face, but also has me feeling a little bit... antsy.
@Dwalin - I think an official update would be very helpful. Most backers have these in hand now and a reminder of what the schedule is for the critters, swag, playsets and weapon racks would be greatly appreciated :) Would be very cool have that all wrapped up and nailed down before Series 2 drops on the 15th.
@Zylo - They are due late summer early fall. Would an official update be helpful?
Jason, Any updates on the rest of our shipments/missing items?
Awesome! Thanks so much for giving life to such an interesting and original property, and then sharing it! These figures are the best!
The weapons and heads will arrive late summer early fall (-:
Has it been posted when we should expect delivery of the missing heads and armor/weapons sets?
@Lamar, our goal is to have volume 2 ready to ship out with the deluxe figures when those arrive ;)
@jason when can we expect volume 2 of the AWOK comic?
Graphic is really good. I hope to see more with some of the other figure characters in
Received my package here in the UK. Just a couple of missing items, one damaged case and a Horrid Assassin with the wrong card (but both are duplicates). Is it just me or does your Saharan Tan Critter look more green?
Overall these guys are way cool.
Apes have made landfall in the Philippines! Yay! I won't be able to get a closer look at them 'til the weekend, but so far, in package they're looking sweet. A couple minor paint quibbles here and there, but I was expecting that with a mass-produced item, and I'm mostly okay with them. The only thing I felt off about was the eyes on one of the two Pale figures I ordered, BUT the eyes on the second were perfect, and I was planning of turning one of them into the wolf variant anyway, so it all worked out. Now I'm just waiting for the go-ahead to ask about the details of my remaining items that haven't shipped out yet. And again, I won't be able to take a closer look at the stuff I have now until the weekend, but no complaints from me so far, and I think everyone at Spero have done a great job with the figures. Overall, I'm very pleased and satisfied with how things turned out.
To quote The Collector: "Magnificent! Magnificent!!! MAAAGNIFICEEEEENNT!!!" :D
Anyway, thank you so much for all the hard work, guys. And I'm really looking forward to the next Kickstarter. Cheers!
23 days and counting!
@Jason Hi ,Today arrived the first part of the delivery , I have a question, only arrived 25 basic figures, but the deluxe figure or 2 additional basic figures additional are pending for the next shipment ?
Jason Great Work, the figures are great
@Ray Excellent we hope they arrived safe and sounds,and ready to battle to...
Hello everyone, today I get a notification to pick up the package, I will pick it up on Saturday. Greetings from Peru
@Jim if its a QC issue please message me or send an email and we'll get you fixed up! If its a missing item please refer the to latest update ;)
@Dwalin Happy Mothers day to all you mothers!!!
@Grosse - Thats fantastic we hope youre enjoying your giant collection and dont worry we'll get you all fixed up ;)
All in all my AWOK collection came out looking good I do have a couple missing things and a few other issues but considering the size of the order I'm ok with it and will send out an email once we get the go ahead
Good job Spero!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of our tribe members and their family members!
I sent a message via Kickstarter with the minor problems I had with my order.
Is that the best way to go about it?
Cool. Thanks, Dwalin.
Huh. I know it's a Tolkien thing, but typing it just now made me feel like I was saying "darlin'" with my mouth full.
@Jason, thanks for the update and I have my coupon ready to go. Free Thane.....and Mala!
@Phil Yes Absolutely :) what will happen is once we are ready to ship we will post an update asking everyone to email me with their list follow up or missing items and we will mail those bad boys out!
@Barry yes the store www.sperotoys.com is now processing and shipping out orders. Please make sure to email me if you did not receive the coupon code flyer (we ran out at some point towards the end of packing) But use it wisely its only good for one use per customer ;)
@Grosse Do you have the link to the store?
@Barry I placed an order in the store this morning if that helps answer your question.
Apes landed in NS, Canada.They look great. I do have an issue. Pale was checked to say he was in my box but he went AWOL.(Wasn't in the box) Can you ship him with weapons pack and stuff?
One more question. Now that all KS orders have shipped, is the Sphero store up and running, ready to fulfill orders? I totally spaced on adding Cruelor and I need him to round out Wave 1.
The update did the trick and cleared everything up for me. Thanks for posting it and my list of missing things in my shipment was spot. I haven't dug into the figures yet but I did start reading the book and getting the background for all the characters. Plus Jason personalized it for me with a quick doodle inside and that surprise was a great touch.
This is great that everyone is getting their stuff now. I know I enjoy mine.
@Dwalin, you part of spero now? Just curious. It would be neat to be part of a creative toy making company I think.
@ Eric - we have you down for 2 of size XL now
@ Barry - we have a solid plan to take care of all the sold out or incorrect items and are about to post a detailed update devoted specifically for this topic
I'm away on vacation right now but I just got word that the apes have landed! This flight home can't go fast enough now. I only hope that there aren't too many issues like everyone is commenting about. I know Jason and crew will make everything right if there is though. I would only ask of the guys to have Series One locked in with a set plan in place to rectify any issues before tackling another KS for Series Two. It sounds like they have something in place for that and hopefully the next update will clearly lay out the way forward to tie things up. Some tribe members like myself have taken too many falls off the banana tree and I need all the help I can get. Free Thane(and Chatsworth too)!
Apes in NY! Apes in NY!! I gotta wait until the weekend to really dive in but they do look fantastic! @Grosse - glad to hear there were no customs. I grew up in NL and building a collection from various online venders was rough since you never knew when you'd get hit.
Free Thane! (and the rest of series two!)
Anyone curious Ottawa Canada has been invaded by apes!!!! and no custom fees!!!!! But sadly I won't have time to go over everything until Sunday at the earliest but at first glance they look amazing we did get minor damage on the graphic novel but it's ok. I read it while running codes at work this morning and now I really want to see a lot of those characters make it to figure form especially Reekey!!!!
Free Thane and bring on Reekey!
Jason - I have an issue that isn't with the 1st shipment but with the next one. When I did the BackerKit, I was able to select the size (XL) for one t-shirt but the 2nd one pre-set as M and I couldn't find a way to change it. I submitted the issue to BackerKit and they said they'd note it in my order and contact you about it, but the handwritten notes on the packing slip I received this weekend shows one XL and one M rather than two XL. Is this something that can still be fixed or is it too late?
@Grosse no problem at all, like you pointed out with Jason hard at work on the next step there's no reason for us not to help if we can right.
@Jason On the above note, I'm not overstepping am I? Also when is the right time (and place for that matter) to send that photograph and any feedback? I don't want to hit you before you're ready but I also don't want to be the last guy on the list y'know. Thanks in advance!
Thank you for further clarification and we know you're working on the next campaign so I don't mind waiting for your replies. I know that when I can answer someone's questions I do my best to do so and we all help each other that being said
Good Morning Tribe! @ Grosse we ran out of the following items as we were packing (critters, and armor sets) We are tallying up everything so that we have a slight surplus after fufulling the items owed. For Tribe Members missing Figures that arent "back ordered" we have a duplicate of the same list if you could take a photo highlighting the missing figures we will be able to make a note on your new pack slip and either send them right out (or for those who are affected by Critters, weapons, and armor set back orders) send them out with that package. Thanks again guys you are all awesome sorry I haven't been keeping up on the comments I will do my best to stay more active.
@zylo I agree with you completely, mistakes happen and thanks for helping to clarify.
@Grosse I hate to say it but there's a chance yes. I can't speak as to the why of it, but as Jason mentioned you'll have notes on your packing slip but I was short 2 in addition to the note. I have no doubts every thing'll be taken care of ultimately and while it is a bummer, I'm happy the figures arrived, I'd rather wait for 5 critters heads, a few weapons backs and a pair of Kahlees than on my entire order y'know. I don't want to make it sound like you order is "going to be wrong", just y'know, the world isn't perfect and sometimes these things happen.
