Rabble Rouser (3/8)



  1. One of the things that I thought was fun with Bones IV was seeing how many pounds everyone’s shipments weighed. When I got my notice today it said 24 pounds, and I thought that seemed rather small for what I ordered. Then I saw the next email with another 32 pounds for a total just over 56 pounds between the two packages. When I told my wife she said that my bones order weighed about as much as our seven-year-old! 😆 I was looking forward to two hopeful deliveries this month one came two weeks earlier than expected (My wife had our third child last week - mom and baby are both doing well)! My Bones V should be here next week. For what it’s worth for anyone trying to keep track of how things are moving, I was wave 1, two ships (1 reg 1 gitd), fairly large order - only a couple items I didn’t order and a few duplicates, first locked-in at order 259. Very excited that they are adding cannons to the 5.5 PM.
  2. Justin just announced on stream. Everything is in, unloaded, and staged. They are going to start pulling orders in about 10 minutes. He said they will be going “full octane”!!!
  3. The stream has started on Twitch for anyone who would like to watch. They have updated the status on the container tracker:
  4. Yay!!! I hope it is the right one, has everything, and that they are able to start on it soon (hopefully not soon tm - hahaha).
  5. It does. I’m hesitant to post it as I don’t want to mislead the causal viewer of the forums. However, this is the name of the article and, for me, when googling it, it shows the days in the summary on Google: Long Beach terminals step up to clear clogging rail containers. I will say that we are long past the average mentioned in the article. Granted the article was written 11 June 2021, so things may have changed. Also, this is a third party writing about the situation, there could be many factors leading to specific delays for Reaper. @AussieAusborn, I agree awesome pictures. Also thanks to @Chris Palmer for your pictures as well. Thanks to any others who have posted pictures that I may be forgetting.
  6. You are correct. Kickstarter update 122 stated that the container has been in Long Beach since May 10th. Update 123 said that the last container is just waiting to be put on a rail car. I read some really interesting articles from JOC dot COM (Journal of Commerce) talking about what created the Long Beach terminal backlog, why it is causing massive delays, and what they are doing about it. (They have had to add acres of land to store all of these containers, can one imagine the cost of California Real Estate just to house shipping containers awaiting transport - ouch!) I am waiting and hoping. I am also really excited for a Ghost Pirate ship. 🙂
  7. They mentioned in Update 123 that the second container is in Long Beach awaiting shipment to DFW. I too am anxiously awaiting word on the final container. Very excited to finally have the figures! Edit: meant to include the quote for the update
  8. If the link @TGP sent doesn’t work for some reason, this is the one that I have: https://discord.gg/reapermini
  9. I’m hoping that I’m helping @Reaper_Jon by posting his comments here as well. Jon mentioned that UPS didn’t like how they were doing the regular ships and that is what is causing the delay.
  10. @Reaper_Jon mentioned over on discord that they have been skipping the orders with the regular pirate ship. That could be why some people have not yet received notice for shipments. Edit: here are a couple more of his comments I found helpful/interesting. I hope this helps others!
  11. Just in case anyone missed it, they mentioned on Reaper Live last night that they do not plan to begin processing fulfillment before June 1st. So, at a minimum it looks like there are a couple more weeks of waiting. I’m starting to get excited. I have begun 3D printing some docks/boardwalk/catwalk (wasn’t sure the correct term and the internet is giving me a lot of different answers) to build a little port/harbor/pier(similar problem as the first term) for the pirate ship and the city of Brinewind.
  12. Here’s a picture from the pre-launch thread that was taken from one of the Reaper Live shows. link: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86871-pre-launch-bones-5-excitement-thread/ I think combine with what @Maledrakh shared it should hopefully give you an idea of size.
  13. I backed another Kickstarter that ended the day before Bones V ended. They got the information back last Friday (and it was a much smaller Kickstarter), so I imagine that Reaper may not yet have the information, or could be getting it soon(tm). Plus on Reaper Live last week they said that after they do get the information that Kit has to work his magic before the pledge manager will go live for us.
