The below list is of RPG Related Kickstarters that were estimated to ship (I am using the ship date for the physical item, not the PDF if there is one) October 2012 or earlier. I was going to add Indiegogo projects to the list, but they are so few (and this list got so long) I'll summarize as follows: LotFP stuff that I supported was late but has shipped. Barrowmaze II shipped on time!
Colors for Actual Ship Date are as follows:
Red: Hasn't shipped and is (or will be based on new estimates) significantly overdue. This includes projects that have been shipping in dribs and drabs for months. If all backers dont have what they pledged for, it's in red.
Orange: Late but shipped, or recently missed a shipping date and hasn't shipped
Green: Shipped on time. Holy Shit!

Adventurer Conqueror King System
Goal: $4,000 Total: $11,648 Funded: August 6, 2011
Estimated Ship Date: November, 2011 Actual Ship Date: April, 2012
Goal: $5,000 Total: $49,324 Funded: August 25, 2011
Estimated Ship Date: December, 2011 Actual Ship Date: Not Shipped (and has missed interim ship dates)
Far West - last update 10/19 - updates approximately monthly - First the main / lead artist flaked out in the middle of the job (and claimed to have finished work he hadn't completed), then Gareth got sick, "Far West" as a title will now be cropping up in unrelated media, making marketing a pain I suspect - and no new ship date.
C&C Classic Monsters
Goal: $4,000 Total: $9,108 Funded: December 2, 2011
Estimated Ship Date: January, 2012 Actual Ship Date: May, 2012
Quantum Roleplaying Game
Goal: $13,000 Total: $47,747 Funded: December 30, 2011
Estimated Ship Date: April, 2012 Actual Ship Date: Not Yet Shipped
Quantum RPG - last update 9/27 - recent updates have been for the new setting book for the as yet unreleased RPG - I don't care how you spin it, but kicking off a new Kickstarter without releasing the final product of the first annoys me. Invest more into something I don't yet have? Boggles the mind. Even better, the second Kickstarter failed ($7,751 out of $30,000 raised - it failed on 10/18). Gee, think it failed because no one has the first Kickstarter in hand yet?

ACKS Player's Companion - last Update 10/9 - Updates approximately monthly. No ship date, but feedback from early release PDF has been applied and the contents revised - Updates average one per month at this stage.
Goal: $12,000 Total: $21,736 Funded: March 20, 2012
Estimated Ship Date: July, 2012 Actual Ship Date: July, 2012

Estimated Ship Date: August 2012 Actual Ship Date: Not Yet Shipped (New Estimate Spring / Fall 2013)
Dwimmermount - Last Update 10/19 - Updates Weekly. Absolutely the best thing Travis (and James) have done is give weekly updates. In the Way Way Back, where updates were few and rumors were many, folks were getting might uppity, and with good reason. There was certainly a loss of some goodwill during the Way Way Back Times, and Travis is putting the effort in now, but things would have been so much simpler if updates had been weekly from the start, especially with the wide margin the ship date is being missed by.
King For a Day
Goal: $800 Total: $4,844 Funded: May 1, 2012
Estimated Ship Date: September 2012 Actual Ship Date: Not Yet Shipped (new estimate - December 2012)
King For a Day - Updates Approximately twice a month. I'm somewhat doubtful of the December 12 ship date, but I'm willing to be surprised
Goal: $300 Total: $91,542 Funded: April 7, 2012
Estimated Ship Date: April, 2012 Actual Ship date: May, 2012
Adventures Dark & Deep
Goal: $2,500 Total: $7,459 Funded: April 15, 2012
Estimated Ship Date: July, 2012 Actual Ship Date: Shipped September, 2012 - I was only in at the PDF level, but congrats for hitting the ship date ;)
Myth & Magic Player's Guide
Goal: $5,000 Total: $24,076 Funded: May 7, 2012
Estimated Ship Date: August 2012 Actual Ship Date: Not Yet Shipped
Myth & Magic Player's Guide - Last update related to this Kickstarter and not it's sister project - 9/21. PDF released to the wild, no hard copies yet
Goal: $1,000 Total: $18,893 Funded: July2, 2012
Estimated Ship Date: July, 2012 Actual Ship Date: Not Yet Shipped (New Estimate Late
Appendix N - Last Update 10/22 - Updates more than once a week - Brave Halfling is like your cousin who is always late to appointments - whether it's a Kickstarter or a pre-order, the quality has so far been excellent, the timeliness has been poor. PDF versions of the releases look to be on time or close to it going forward - physical products is going to be a wait n see in my opinion.
Nystul's Infinite Dungeon
Goal: $2,000 Total: $16,017 Funded: June 3, 2012
Estimated Ship Date: September 2012 (New Estimate October 2012 for PDF)
Nystul's Infinite Dungeon - Weekly updates - Estimate for physical delivery is November 2012. greatly expanded offering from initial description.
Not RPGs, but Game Related
Dwarven Adventurers Boxed Set
Goal: $1,250 Total: $136,487 Funded: July 25, 2012
Estimated Ship Date: September 2012
Dwarven Adventurers blew away it's goal and added so many miniatures to the set that missing the estimated ship goal was a given before the funding even completed. If you are going to ship late, this is the reason. Weekly Updates
There are some other Board Games and such, which I will update later
