Hourly update, 13 orders were processed between 2PM-3PM CDT. A total of 1820 wave 2 orders have been shipped/processed so far. A total of 78 orders have been processed today; there will likely not be any more.

High-end estimates of 1965 total Wave 2 orders leaves about 145 orders left to process.

Per @ladystorm additional orders and restocks may be run throughout the weekend, but are not required. We thank these dedicated Reaper Staff for all their hard work.

We're in Vancouver, Canada, and we haven't received any tracking emails at all yet. Should we be concerned?

 

You might be one of the 60 or so canadian orders that were missed for some unknown reason. I am in the same boat. Bryan said we'd be sent in our wave order but I was in wave one and nothing has been sent yet (or at least no notices) - I sent in a formal email a couple days ago and they have said they are looking into it, but haven't heard anything back yet about when I can expect my stuff to be sent.

 

On the bright side, I think they are pretty aware of our messed up orders. On the sad side, we might be waiting awhile for our goodies. The other fellow I saw on here was also from BC (me too - Victoria!) - I wonder if there was some glitch about processing BC orders...

I was fairly conservative during the Kickstarter, but I am so glad that during my second and third orders I had decided that I needed ALL the dragons.^_^

He's a great dragon. I am waaaay less regretful this Kickstarter than last as while I think he's a great figure, I still have so many dragons still to paint from KS2 that I don't feel regretful about not buying every single one this go. I still bought at least 4... but yeah... feel pretty good on dragons for the moment... which I never thought I'd say. Really so far the only really true regret I have is not buying 2 froghemoths like I originally planned to. And really, out of everything I was regretful about not loading up on last time... I barely bought any at retail so I clearly didn't want them

THAT much. So, that's a nice lesson in FOMO learned.

 

Really I bought waaaaaay more than I should have as is so I am just going to "suffer" with that.

That makes sense. Just didn't know if it was strictly "Biggest KS" piece or "Really big pieces"

 

Yeah, the "biggest in the KS" is his thing; my shtick is more "very big but still doable in 5 days while also providing a challenge."  I haven't confirmed any beyond Cthulhu and Mashaaf yet, since I want to try the others I have in mind first to see if they're too impossible or super easy. ^_^

 

I'm considering Nethyrmaul, Wyrmgear, the Kracken, Kyra and Lavarath, and T'rauk. Possibly Shub Niggurath. 

 

Huzzah!

I finally took the time to put together my checklist... I'd saved it until I knew my minis were almost here. Just under 500 of them. It's interested to realize how much my miniature needs/wants changed over the time since I started locking in my pledges. I kinda wish I hadn't gotten a second graveyard now, and instead got a few more of the add-ons or duplicates of some of the giants. Ah well, I'm still gonna love having extra fences and wraiths and stuff.

 

I'm pretty glad I didn't get ma'al. I have no idea what I'd do with that much draconic plastic.

Mine have arrived and everything is here except... (drumroll) T'raukzul's lower jaw. It was the very last piece I was going to check and dry fit out of the whole order and it just wasn't there. ::(:  Off to e-mail the fine folks at Reaper support.

 

Everything else looks fantastic.

@Joe Wells remember. while they do read all the emails, there is going to be a final update concerning what to do with missing/broken/wrong orders. I think they mostly want us to wait for that.

Looking at the kickstarter I see that there was no figure placed near T'rock for scale. He was $20 though which was more than the other dragons (except for Ma'al). I didn't just miss Stormwing, I decided not to get him at the time. Shoulda, woulda, coulda, but he is a regret.

That's exactly why I didn't get him!

 

He looked cool, but seemed overpriced compared to the other dragons (I figured he was about the same size),

 

Ah, well...

I'm glad I got t'rauk, but I keep looking at Viridius, who I didn't get, and wondering what the hell I was thinking.

 

Pretty sure if I'd got everything in the entire KS I'd still be regretting the ones I didn't get doubles of though. There's no satisfying the monkey on our backs.

The UPS truck showed up, we opened the door and he handed us the package (23lbs) and walked away. No import charges. I felt silly holding my credit card waiting for the import duties. I wasn't charged anything.

I had no duty. A "small" box, though. I confirmed by confirmed by phone. The key is the origin on the label

It's taxes, not duties.

 

Thank you for all of the Canadians chiming in in response! If this keeps true it'll be a huge load off my mind (and my wallet). Although I will point out that I have had an instance where UPS did not charge me at the door, but sent me an invoice 2 weeks later.

 

And yes, I apologize, myself and many others have taken to calling all Taxes, Duties, Brokerages and Import fees as simply "Duties" out of simplistic sake, which is indeed not the case (not always anyway). When I had been estimating mine, I had indeed been taking Manitoba taxes into account, plus the UPS $10 Brokerage fee, plus the occasional $5 processing fee, plus the random $12 "Because UPS can charge you whatever they like" fee, all of which I've seen in random combinations before when having packages delivered by UPS.


I think my biggest issue is how inconsistent they are. I get it, rules and laws change, but I cant believe they flip flop every year. Through a program I have through work, I've ordered a discounted Intel CPU every year or two years for the past 8 years or so, and every time I do, even though its also been the same classification of item, and roughly the same price (exchange rates excluded...) I've been charged such wildly different charges every time UPS has delivered. Sometimes $12, sometimes (usually? Or at least the most often) around $32, randomly once $50, randomly once $0. Yes there can be differing reasons, but that seems like a bit much.

 

At any rate, that paragraph rant got a bit off topic.

 

The important thing is that Reaper has been doing a fantastic job these past two weeks, and that people are getting their products! :D

I'm personally still on the side of people that has no issue these are "late" compared to when they had been initially advertised. There are still so many Kickstarters that never even get anything, or get something much less in quality that they thought they would get. I know by now that I can trust Reaper to deliver in the end, so I had no worries.

 

:D

      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
