Are you KIDDING!?!? Wow... that's just... wow.Blacklist these people for life. Seriously.
There's a reason I used screen shots and not just copy paste - as this shit has to be seen to be beleived
Well, I guess they believe if they are going to screw their customers they need to really screw their customers and give it that 110% kind of commitment.
This looks like a perfect case for a lawsuit. Which would have the beneficial effect of encouraging other Kickstarters to stay honest.
"This looks like a perfect case for a lawsuit.

The rewards are just that: Rewards. Not purchases. Yes, it sucks and is lame if you pitch in and the reward never shows. But that's not grounds for a lawsuit. You didn't purchase anything.
That is incorrect, hans. According to Kickstarter's terms of service, project creators are legally obligated to either fulfill the promised rewards or refund the money if they are unable or unwilling to fulfill their backer's rewards. This business that you "aren't really buying anything" is a myth.
Oddly enough, this creator had another kickstarter that was an even bigger success in Sept. 2012. I feel sorry for those backers.
