    Gaming, anime, manga, crafting, reading. I have alot of interests, but they seem to all go along the same vein. My upcoming project is learning to properly paint minis. Wish me luck!
  1. Sophie the Riveter. That was also a suggestion from the KS. And please.... no Miley! Let's keep Sophie classy guys! Although I could use some info on her from the "I wanna cosplay as her" standpoint.
  2. Swingity, swagity, swell and sumptuous swag bags. They are the swagingest! Btw, the quote button isn't working for me....no idea why.
  3. I will go to Reapercon someday....yes someday.... Until then, I'll be getting swag bags when/if they have them each year. I'll even bring my bf with me! He will love the swagness of the swag bags. I got one for him and one for me.
  4. Thank you Reaper! People like me who couldn't go to ReaperCon are grateful for your generosity! And such talented hands have made bags like mine too?! Is it ok to fangirl about that? I wish I could buy some drinks for everyone there!
  5. Hmm...we can post questions on here, right? I was wondering....I had some crazy ideas to suggest to people on the forums for dioramas...things I know I'm not at a level to actually do. I was wondering where was the best place to suggest them? I know there's some areas for contest creation. I didn't want anyone to confuse my suggestions with that though. General Discussion doesn't sound like the appropriate place either. And this isn't something "off-topic" so that's out.
  6. Is there any news of a Bryanzilla figure for Bones 3? Or maybe as a special fig in the future? *stares at you with Hopeful Adorable Shining Eyes of DOOM* I've been away too long in the land of Ree-tayl and I'm behind on the times!
  7. I wouldn't say no to having one Bones LTPK release before my b-day (sept 13th)! Probably too short notice....I second LittleBluberry though! a Christmas release would be perfect! "What'd you get in your stocking?" "Bones!!" "Uh.....isn't coal the traditional thing???" "Oh no, Bones are the best! You can paint them and even play with them!!" "I'm.....going over there..." Now I have this weird image of someone rolling the Bones sprues to tell the future....O.o
  8. I think there were several communication mistakes, but I'd say it's been pretty good. Should they have gone with only the KS for posting? Not sure. There are good reasons to do so, but also not to. I for one cringed when I read an employee agree with an angry backer that pledges were "pre-orders". They aren't and never have been. I think though, that since KS is such a new concept, it's not as firmly defined in some minds as it should be. That would be a wise thing to distinguish in their FAQ for next time. "Question: Is my Pledge a Pre-order? Answer: No. Pre-orders by definition are early orders for items that are already in existance. They can help companies to get a good idea of how many of said item they might need for the main release though. A Pledge to our KS is an investment into the creation of something which doesn't exist yet. Essentially, you are helping us build something by providing the monies to get the raw materials to make them come to life! The rewards given to you are thank you gifts for helping us do this." Taking the mechanic analogy, a pledge is like investing into a young mechanic's education, or a special car that they've only got the blueprints for. You may get estimates, but in no way are you expecting it to be instant. Can you get something from this? Of course! If you help a young mechanic get the education they need to be a pro, you could make them your employee at your own car shop. If you are investing in a concept car, you could get the first shot at owning one, or give imput into its final design. A pre-ordered part however, is already in existance. Maybe it's a brand new type. But the company has already gone through the concept phase, the investment phase, and is simply looking for buyers now. The mechanic may or may not have even been involved with the company's work to bring this part to market. All you really have to worry about at this stage is how long it takes to get to the shop. Laoke, I understand you are frustrated, but I believe there were comments from Reaper explaining how with ROW shipments, you would not get an e-mail from the shipper, right? It shouldn't be that way, but I do know that different shipping companies have their own policies. That being said, if you need to you have Reaper's e-mail and phone number. I believe they should be able to get back to you and hopefully everything can be solved to your satisfaction. I'm glad I got in on this KS. I know it's been a long wait, but I was fully expecting it. Maybe it's my pessimistic side, but I always try to apply Murphy's Law on anything like this. It helps with patience anyway. Am I grateful to Reaper? Yes! I'm grateful to have such cool stuff to enjoy with my bf and our gaming group hopefully in the future! I also am grateful for the way they handled things. I know if it were me, I'd have gone completely crazy!!! Any delay would've brought on waves of guilt and self-loathing, for what I felt I could've done or should have done. I'd be constantly trying to please everyone when we all know you can't. I guess I just have more patience and understanding when other people are in charge. Reaper, please know that I'm very thankful and when I visit PAX, I'll try to find you all to say so. If you won't let me hug you, at least please let me get you guys something to drink! (If not alcohol, I can get water, fruit juice, ect)
  9. It's like I'm babysitting and I'm not getting paid!
  10. To infinity...and BEYOND!!
  11. "You should always raise the curtainnnn...with a bowww..."
  12. "A cling-on, Cap'n, and the engines can't take it."
  13. "A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything."
  14. "Earthman, your Mickey Mouse is one big stupid dope!"
  15. Two: "The line must be drawn HERE!!!" "Assimilate THIS!!"
