    I'm thinking I am going to ask to cancel. I ordered these back when they first put them up for pre-order (1/19) and I think they were supposed to be due in May. I already got the Renderform parts, not sure if this is worth it to doubledip.

    Huh, when did they post that? I'm following them on Facebook but have never see any of their posts in my news feed. I'd like to take advantage of that, but I don't know where to find my order number. Unless it's in my paypal receipt, which is the only thing I ever received to confirm my order with them. My account with the order info doesn't even exist on their site anymore since they performed some update that wiped out all the old account info...

    Glad to see this project finally moving along. I understand they've been struck by misfortune of the greater kind, but I can't deny that the long silence was getting to me. Blast Off's head turned out pretty darn fantastic IMO, and it was the main reason why I ordered the set. So pretty happy there!

    The order ID will be in the email you should've received when you placed your pre-order. Searching your inbox for "GCI" should bring it up fairly quickly. The ID will be in both the subject (in parenthesis) and in the body itself. Should say something like: "Your order has been received, and any items to be shipped will be processed as soon as possible. Please refer to your Order ID (12a3bc4defg5) whenever contacting us."

    Interesting, I only ever received the paypal confirmation. Nothing beyond that. Oh well.

    Edit: Got it sorted out. Thanks Dr. Killinger.

    Hey folks sorry about this, forgot to update here, I took for granted that Daimchoc usually took care of it like clockwork.

    Anyway, thanks to everyone for their patience and yes indeed we are giving out free glow swords for those that stuck it out. Lots of you have already emailed me and we should have all the swords ready within the next two weeks.

    If you haven't already, simply drop me an email at [email protected] with your order number, Paypal receipt or name and address and we can find the order for you and get the sword of your choice out to you soon.

    Things are now moving ahead, slowly, but progress is being made every day!

    Again, I can't stress enough how sorry I am about the delays. I do believe I got all the refunds out to those that requested it, but if I missed you please send me an email and I will get you taken care of.

    I'm not really sweating the delays. I waited over a year for my nonnef cw upgrades, I can wait for this stuff. That being said, I'll happily take a free glow sword. Email sent.

    Eagerly awaiting this set, but I'm wondering if anyone knows when the consolation gift swords are meant to ship out.

    Got some production samples today, measuring all the samples to ensure the pegs and holes are 5mm, we are off on a couple by .1 to .4 of a mm, so some need to be remade while others are good to go. Its still looking like we should have some orders ready to go by the end of Jan.

    No worries! I totally get how life happens to the best of plans and people. I was just unsure if the offer had come and gone and I had been forgotten.
