Where o' where can it be?
When it comes to tracking my Kickstarters, I pretty much focus on the RPGs, so I really haven't touched on two of the other long overdue Kickstarters that I supported. I'm in a pissed off mood for other reasons today, so I figured this would be a good outlet ;)
Reaper Bones Kickstarter
Goal: $30,000 Total: $3,429,235 Funded: August 25, 2012
Estimated Ship Date: March, 2013 Actual Ship Date: Not Yet Shipped / Shipped / Go Figure
If all you asked for was the basic "Vampire" level, you probably already have your stuff. If you did any sort of add-ons, the "slow boat from China" literally left 2 weeks ago, 3 more weeks before it arrives, and then thousands and thousands of orders to sort and ship. I guess shipping will resume sometime in July. At this rate, I suspect both of my scheduled vacations will have passed before I see my order.
There have also been complaints on the retail level that the Kickstarter tied up production and shipping of other minis from Reaper. I'm not sure if this will be a be a boon or a hinderance for Reaper in the long run and frankly I just don't care - I want my shit!
Ogre Designer's Edition
Goal: $20,000 Total: $923,680 Funded: May 11, 2012
Estimated Ship Date: November 2012 Actual Ship Date: Aiming for October 2013
Apparently box design could be it's own college major, as the box and box tays seem to have been the biggest delay in the oversized and delayed project.
Sure, Steve Jackson Games has kept us updated with photos and photos of all of the shit they are cramming into the already oversized Ogre box, so none of this is a huge surprise, but the nearly 5 months from last update (June 3) to projected shipping (October 21) is more than a minoir annoyance.
I need to dig out my Pocket Ogre and GEV games and relive old times. Just need to keep away from any breezes and fans and not bump the table, as the original game was easy to upset.
I will not be supporting the upcoming Car Wars Kickstarter - I'll buy that when it hits retail.
Wow, much less obnoxious then I expected when starting this post. I must be calming down or something ;)
