lol. Exactly one year after this thread is started, what do I get in the mail?!?

My copy of Pandora's Tower. Yay!


Give it another year and you might just get a commemorative box to put it in. :lol:

Lol this was such a scam. I can't wait til they insensitively say the boxes were passing through Oklahoma last week and were destroyed.

I think the already tacky part is they keep updating their website with news and articles by haven't updated information on the boxes since April. They clearly used the "Operation Rainfall" project money to fund the startup of their website. I'd be surprised if any media presentation packets were ever sent out or even produced.

Not sure what country they could be coming from that takes 50+ days to ship a package to the USA (since "the shipment is on its way" as of 4/1/2013). Maybe it got intercepted by Somali pirates.

I think we should start a letter-writing campaign to get OR to release their boxes. We'll call it "Project Tearfall" to represent all the tears we cried while waiting for our boxes.

Eventually, can we take donations to build a press kit to convince OR to release the boxes? We can print out pictures of the boxes and mail them to OR. We can give everyone who donates $10 or more a display case to keep the OR box in.

Would we get the display case before or after we get the collector's box? :D

Update today from website:

 

Sunday, June 9th, 2013: Great news everybody. We fully expect to start shipping the cases to those that ordered them, this month! We will have an update for you sometime shortly after E3 and we will include pictures of the cases before we ship them. We know the long wait is not excusable, and we are truly sorry. We also know we are asking a lot, but wait just a little longer, and you’ll get the cases you donated for a year ago. We’re considering ways to make up for the long wait, such as maybe a raffle for those that donated and have been waiting. We’ll have more on that later, but for now, we’re just going to focus on getting those cases out to you all.

Also as a reminder, if you want a refund on your donation, you can request one at anytime. Just use our “Contact Us” form and include your name and Paypal address so your donated funds will be returned to you.

why do they need people to make a request? why not just return everyone's if they aren't doing what they said they would...

Update:

 

So when will YOU receive them?  Basically I need to go through every single box and match it to every applicable donation that we received.  Don’t worry, there’s enough to go around.

I didn’t donate, is it too late to chip in for one? No, but I’d rather make sure everyone who donated before hand has theirs all set up and ready to go. So hold your horses before donating! PLEASE! (for my sanity)

Do they come with the games? That would bankrupt us, especially considering how much Xenoblade goes for nowadays.

What took so long? A long tale of theft, lies, and betrayal.  I could write a book about it, ask my therapist!  The important part is we have them which means the next step is you’ll receive them!

So now that we finally have them we hope to get them out to you by the end of the week, at most next weekend.  Thank you for being as patient as you possibly can be, hopefully you can still trust us!!

Heh. Can't wait until they're robbed or lost in a fire, or Turns out our delivery service needs 3-6 weeks notice for this size of shipment. You can't just walk it down to the post office

 

This is a good con.

Those giant boxes would pretty much be the same size as the initial shipment, right?

 

The one that some dastardly crooks swept away in the night with?

 

I'm no thief, but if there are four large boxes and I'm trying to be quick and stealthy, I'm probably going to quickly peek inside them before I go through the efforts of loading them in my vehicle.

 

But then, I guess that's why I'm not a thief.

 

*edit* From the original article:

One of the things they also happened to steal was the box full of cases.

What now shipped in four large boxes originally shipped in one, single box?

What, you're trying to say that the contents of those 4 boxes couldn't arrive in one bigger box?  And if thieves checked the content of packages, then I surely wouldn't have had a couple of seasons of Three's Company taken from my doorstep a few months ago.

I'm not saying they *couldn't* have... I'm just saying that if they had, it would have been a *really* big and pretty heavy box.  If I'm a thief who just broke into someone's house and saw all this electronic equipment that I was stealing, I would have taken the 15 seconds to pop open the large, heavy, awkward box before I took the effort to carry it to my car and load it up.

 

But that's just me.

So, people gave up about $10 of their money for a piece of crap box made of super thin cardboard?
