This is also one of my concerns considering that it *is* UPS cross-border shipping we're talking about (they're notorious for their customs clearance fees). Worsened by the fact my shipping address is the post office itself.

 

Next week will be "One of those days." :wacko:

Just to confirm (or not?) there was no Duty or Import charges for you guys?

Seriously that is my biggest scare right now. My bones are apparently on their way (ETA May 30th), and the thought of having to pay Duties on top of the nearly $800 CAD I've already paid is getting to me.

But if there's even a slim chance that Canadians are getting their Bones without Duties... that'd be massive to me! :D

 

No duties or anything. And I spent ~$700 US ($940 CAD according to google), so I am very happy to confirm no costs at the door.

I'm not sure if I missed something, but is there no way to remove the roof of the mausoleum if the sides are glued together?

I dry assembled Shub... No tack, the legs and base provide stability. The tentacles have to go in a certain order, you will probably want the legs glued first, and I couldn't figure out where the spiked one goes.

I can't remember, did @Reaperbryan or anyone else put out a parts spreadsheet for Bones III?  It might be nice to have when I have to inventory my rewards.

 

There is this forum list:

Anyone else get their Bones 3 package faster than a regular order?

 

A regular order typically takes three to four days to reach me IIRC, but my Bones 3 package arrived in two days from when it went out Reaper's doors on Wednesday evening.  UPS for the KS was faster than USPS for regular orders.

 

Thank you, Reaper, that's quite a difference.  I thought my order was filled too late in the day to go out Wednesday, but it made it in.  ::):

Thinking back, I'm going to say I did get things faster than normal. But for me, I think that's just the difference between USPS and UPS. Plus, the mass shipment is more a direct injection into the shipping system rather than waiting for the normal pickup during normal times.

 

And Erk, I'll try to get a picture for you.

I tried to dry fit mine, but his wings are so heavy that his legs pop back out. He is enormous. I'm not sure how he stacks up against a certain colossal red dragon mini by that other company of coastal mages (I haven't compared yet), but he is real big.

 

I saw someone dry fit T'Raukzul on Facebook using a bunch of rubber bands. I'll try to find it again unless someone posts theirs up first.

 

Edit: photo found!

It's taxes, not duties.  I don't know what Reaper's shipping method is this time, but I do know that way back for Bones I we explained the weirdness of getting them to Canada via UPS and the brokerage fees.  I know that for previous ones they did their best to mitigate additional fees for us, particularly the brokerage fee, but with years between Bones shipments things may have changed.  In any case, should there be taxes, it ought to only be GST if you want to calculate that and prepare for your worst case.  Note that taxes, if applied, may not apply to the full amount depending on how much you have ordered from abroad in the fiscal year.  It can be a bit byzantine, I'm not sure how it all works, but if there are taxes that will almost certainly be case-by-case.  So some may get none, some may owe some, or maybe nobody gets any.

 

As an example, this year from Reaper as regular orders I have ordered about $700 worth of stuff.  I paid taxes on the first order, nothing since.  Does it make sense?  Not really.  It is the Eternal Mystery of Customs.

Yeah. I mean, Ma'al is still bigger, but T'Raukzul is still a force to be reckoned with. I'm a bit daunted by the thought of painting mine. I don't have access to an airbrush.

 

I guess I gotta power through a tiny brush challenge sometime, right?

I don't have an airbrush either. Nor will I buy one.

 

I do have some big brushes though.

 

So much goodies coming!!!!

Thanks!  I just finished slinging some paint and thought, "you know, I bet I should check the first post to see if Bryan pinned anything there. . . ." ::P:

      From the Facebook announcement:
       
      "The ritual has started, and there’s no stopping it now. The only hope for the Investigators…and the rest of the world for that matter, is to disrupt it just enough so that when the Elder One arrives, it will be vulnerable for a split second. Just long enough to kill it!
      They’ll get their chance when Cthulhu: Death May Die comes to Kickstarter on July 10 at 3 PM EST. The new game from CMON and Guillotine Games combines the creative talents of Eric M. Lang and Rob Daviau. Stay tuned as we reveal more about the Investigators risking their lives and the unspeakable horrors they will face off against."

      Overview Earthworm Jim has been a beloved character in video games since his launch in 1994, but due to the limitations of cartridge space, his epic story was never properly told. I'm not only the creator of Earthworm Jim, but I've spent the last 20 years making 18 graphic novels! EARTHWORM JIM is about the world's most unlikely hero... a worm! The evil Queen of Insectica has a super-suit invented that is capable of altering the universe when it is stolen by her ugly sister, Princess What's-Her-Name... Earthworm Jim... from the creator of Earthworm Jim!
      My name is Doug TenNapel and I created Earthworm Jim 26 years ago. Though "EWJ" appeared in award winning video games, an animated series and a toy line, his epic story has yet to be told! We all know the character, but none of us know the story. This deficit in the universe ends NOW!
      (P.S. Do sign up for the Earthworm Jim Comic mailing list! http://earthwormjimcomic.com/ )

      For the first time in 27 years I am crafting an epic graphic novel worthy of the true fans of Earthworm Jim in a multi-book set! Let's launch the cow!
                        

      My last Indiegogo campaign was for a comic book called Bigfoot Bill and my backers blew me away by providing $196k in funding! Together, we were able to make a hard bound, giant book with over-the-top gold-leafing and embossing on the cover. With your help, we can make Earthworm Jim: LAUNCH THE COW a beautiful volume that is a work of art unto itself. It goes on the coffee table, not some box of wrinkled, floppy comics in the basement. This story will be a sprawling love letter to the fans of Earthworm Jim!


      YOU are my Plan A. There is no other plan!
      Making a big, beautiful book requires a lot of funding. Paper costs go up every year, and I only use top quality end sheets, cover stock and print work. It's made in America in my state so I can oversee every step of production. 

      The book will start as a handsome hardbound edition, oversized at 9" x 12" and 160 pages long! It documents the origins of the super suit and how it got to earth to make our favorite hero. You'll see some familiar characters ripped straight out of the video game like: Peter Puppy, Princess What's-Her-Name, Psycrow, the hideous Professor Monkey for a Head, Queen Slug-for-a-Butt and Evil the Cat!

      The Making Of EARTHWORM JIM Book!
      Your Earthworm Jim: Launch the Cow comic is lonely and needs a companion...

      The "Making Of The Earthworm Jim Book" is a perfect companion to the comic bookk. It will also be hardbound, 9" x 12" and starts at 64 pages (But I KNOW we can do a lot better than that!). It has a comprehensive backstory on all of the main characters and villains. I think it's tacky to have too much expository dialogue on everyone's past, so it's better to unfurl that in this book. I give you the why behind the entire Earthworm Jim universe... and yes, I'm building a universe!

      I recently had a reunion with the whole Earthworm Jim game team and I got to interview everyone. We talked about how Earthworm Jim came to be and I will document that many close calls and freak accidents that had to fall into place for it to happen. There will be team bios, and a catch up on what everyone has been doing over the last 25 years since we got together.

      The Shiny Team section of the book has portraits of the talented artists, programmers and musician and the photos were even taken by David Perry the Earthworm Jim programmer!

      I'll show every step of the comic book's production, from raw ideas on the white board to printing every notecard I used in breaking down the story. You'll see the raw pencilled pages, inked pages with washes applied and I even scan my script pages that are covered in pencil re-writes!

      Who remembers this cartridge and packaging art by Mike Koelsch...?



      I've asked Mike Koelsch to paint a new "90s-style EWJ cover" for the Making Of book! Koelsch will give a step-by-step story on how he illustrated EWJ including a sneak peek into his studio madness. (Check out Koelsch's website here: http://www.sporkunltd.com/) He has also allowed me to make prints of the cover and the original is available on our highest backer tier. I'll put it in a beautiful frame with matting so it's ready to hang in your home!
      Here's Mike giving step by step progress on the cover:



      I've got perks where you can own the original comic pages, the book covers and enjoy frame-worthy prints plus a perk where I will draw you an original signed Earthworm Jim head-sketch in your book!




      3 ART PRINTS!
      I hope to make three collectable prints with each Earthworm Jim book by guest artists, and these are the first three. Note: They will only be offered on this campaign and won't be offered on any future campaigns. The first is by Mike Koelsch, the artist who did all of the cartridge and packaging illustrations for Earthworm Jim 1 and 2. The next two are from the CreatureBox boys Greg and Dave!

      FUND THE TEAM:
      The funds will go to a costly print run, my letterer Eric Weathers, flatter Radka Kavalcova, my colorist Katherine Garner, book designer Joe Potter and shipping fees. Here's a sampling of the team's test pages so far:



      The Art of Bookmaking
      I've spent years making graphic novels and Earthworm Jim is probably my most well-known creation, yet his story hasn't been told. This is my chance to do the best job I can to entertain you and your backing will make this book a fantastic work of art.



      I don't see comics as disposable rags made to read once then toss aside. I spend a lot of time writing and story and crafting every page and merely reading some thin floppy or a PDF isn't the experience I'm going for. This book will be something you can enjoy for a lifetime, it's literature, not pop-garbage and I want to stand on the tip-toes of my ability to reach for the highest possible craft I can accomplish! 

      My track record in this arena has few peers. I Kickstarted two sketchbook archives where we managed leather covers, gold gilded edges and the best printing money can buy. These are one-of-a-kind collector's items that are not available in stores. The book honors the backers who made them happen. I write for the most diverse audience imaginable, and the backers constantly tell me, "I got more than I paid for!" 

      If you look at my books that are made outside of Indiegogo, you'll see that they don't have the over-the-top printing production I can pull off through crowd funding. Only through Indiegogo will you find foil-stamped gold cover art, UV gloss coatings, embossing and de-bossing! I hope to explore new printing techniques that make these hard bound books the kind of items you show off to your friends with a durability that ensures a great re-read for the rest of your life!


      For more on the Bigfoot Bill campaign click here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/doug-tennapel-s-bigfoot-bill-graphic-novel/x/838702#/
      I spend a lot of time putting these books together, it's time away from my family and I've dedicated my art philosophy and have the highest commitment to being transparent to my backers, include them in every step of the process and take the moral contract between backer & creator seriously.

      Why Beale Air Force Base?
      When Crew Chief Matt Konar was allowed to choose any artist to paint the nose art on his KC135 refueling plane he wanted something like his favorite character Earthworm Jim! A friend put us in contact, and I designed the artwork for the plane and attended the commissioning ceremony on May 5th. The whole base came out and I felt so humbled to get to help America's finest that I wanted to do something special for those folks and give YOU that same feeling. 



      By backing the Beale Air Force tier, I hope to send one copy of the Earthworm Jim comic to all 800 people on that base just in time for Christmas! As a thank you, I will send you a signed book!

      Here's a sample page from the comic:

      About
      Hello everyone,
      A warm welcome to our latest Kickstarter called Cyber Belles!
      These fairies have survived the eons and have adapted to modern times. We've placed them in an apocalyptic setting where mankind has all but destroyed the world and... itself! The fairies have evolved and have adjusted to the needs necessary to survive in this dangerous place! 
      The campaign will help us fund the production of three 75mm miniatures and maybe something else... which is small... and cute... ;) 
      The campaign is about three 75mm scale miniatures. Red Belle, Blue Belle and Yellow Belle.
      The artwork
      Red Belle Blue Belle Yellow Belle Note: the sculpts are a little bit different from the artwork shown. We mostly chose to do this to make them a little bit more realistic and also to make sure that the casting were strong enough in the end.
      The artwork
      Red Belle 
       Blue Belle 
       Yellow Belle  
       (see more angles at the bottom!)
