    Little sad that shipping won't begin till the 8th but the schedule they gave makes sense as to why it is still a bit off. Also it is only a week and a half till that begins and things from Reaper usually take 2-3 days to get to me and I am Wave 1 so there is a chance I will get it on the week of the 8th (if they don't run out of Frost Giants ). It was a good update though it feels like they finally laid everything out and now we are all on the same page.

    Someone posted in the KS comment page that they talked to Reaper today and were told that their Wave One package should be to them in 2 weeks. I am guessing that Reaper is giving themselves a bit of a cushion on that so hopefully it will be sooner than that but at least it will be within a couple weeks at worst.
  5. Received shipping notification!

    It was easy making mistakes with large furniture so you are correct that little items would be really easy to mess up on. Plus when you work that amount of hours with people you get grumpy and tensions can run high which can cause lots and lots of stuff to go wrong. Hopefully they have some nice weather and can relax this weekend. Though I wouldn't hate them if they started back at it Monday

    Before I became an accountant about 3 years ago I spent many years working in warehouses. The one I worked in the most was at the University here in town, we handled all the furniture for student housing both apartments and dorms. Now during the summer we would set and prepare dorm rooms for visiting conference and then at the end of summer setting them back for the students. It may not sound like a lot but the dorms house around 18000 freshman each year so there are a LOT of rooms. Anyways I can remember 3 summers where we worked 90 hour weeks for the entire summer break (about 3 months in the US). We worked everyday including Sundays. It was nothing but hauling furniture and was back breaking. Around the 4th of July we would go back to 40 your weeks for 2 weeks then back to 90s. It was grueling but I made great money! Eventually we stopped doing so much OT and would do 90 hour weeks for about 4 or 5 weeks of tge summer. So the human body could easily package all those orders for a couple weeks straight. In fact if they put in overtime they could easily get it all done in a couple weeks max. All that being said I missed out on a lot of fun those summers (they were my college years) and I was miserable and I wouldn't want anyone to have to work like that. The people of Reaper are way ahead of where we were thinking they would be. They shouldn't have to put their lives on hold because we ordered a bunch of toys. Plus after a little break hopefully they'll come back energized ready to really get the orders flowing!

    Looks like Canada will only take 2 days if they keep on pace.

    Not really sure what to do with myself without any activity from the tracker... Guess I could see if my job needs any attention... but that's boring

    @Crowley has one in his signature I believe but Reaperbryan left Reaper over a year ago.

    Hmmm... I read that comment from Matt very differently. I read it as tomorrow and Saturday will be getting EU and AU palleted and into shipping containers and set up for Canadian shipping. Then maybe even a couple days next week finishing EU/AU with Canadian shipping beginning once thats done. The whole "we probably won't begin shipping again until sometime next week" I think would include packing and shipping Canadian orders so I think we are in a bit of a holding pattern. I'm a pessimist but from that comment and with Canadian shipping not starting till "sometime next week" I am guessing US orders won't start until after the 1st. I hope I am wrong though.

    Well that's disappointing! But I guess it is stuff that needs to be done. Don't they know that this is by far the hardest part of a KS (at least for backers) and any delay is just dangling a carrot in front of us?!

    Looks like they will start back up in the morning. I am really looking forward to Reaper Live.

    Yes we are close! Should Hopefully they have time for a restock and maybe knock out a few Canadian orders. EDIT

    I was hoping they would finish AU by lunch.

    Kilsyth, Australia? Seems a little on the nose don't you think?

    Me too! I wouldn't mind if the Reaper Live tonight was just video footage of them packing. I hope we get at least another small video.

    @ladystorm retiring has something to do with it I suspect.

    What time is quitting time for the Reaper people? I thought 4 pm their time but they appear to still be working. Maybe staying a little late to get a few more out? Or there is a chance I am wrong about their closing time and they could just be working their regular hours.

    Wait, isn't Western Australia the Outback? Like dangerous and scary part?! Good on you for surviving!

    I am I am wave 1 and locked in pretty early so I am hoping I will get my package next week regardless of whether they get to US shipping this week or not.

    Seems like they tracker is moving a little slower today. I wonder if that means they have had less PM add ons and the number of orders is actually closer to the number of backers.

    I don't have any idea. My belief is based on faith and has no basis on any facts There can't be that many orders to Australia it's like 85% sand, 10% spiders and snakes that want to kill you, 4% kangaroos, and 1% people. Even further Canada can't have many either because it's 87% snow and ice, 6% moose, 5% hockey/curling rinks, 1.8% Tim Hortons, and .2% people.

    I am keeping faith in the warehouse people and I think they can get AU and Canada done by tomorrow!
