    Hey All, I got some exciting info from the team today. Earlier this week another shipment of 50 top and bottom cases arrived via air. So now a total of 100 Cases (Top and bottom) are either in the hands of the RoBo team, or in the hands of Backers as full printers. Also, I got word that on July 7Th the larger shipment via sea was shipped! Parts should be arriving shortly and be in the hands of the RoBo 3D team within the next 2 weeks! Just wanted to give you guys a quick update on everything!
    - Harry

    An estimate of the number of cases coming would be appreciated. I'm hoping it'll be over 500, and all 1000 would be fantastic.

    Now to start praying no Godzilla related setbacks happen while at sea… I hope they fly through customs and the crew is ready to start building them…. Also an estimate of how many are on the ship would be nice to hear. Is it all of what is needed for backers, or is it half? Did they have more made for future orders, or are those on hold until all kickstarter printers have been built? I know a few people that are interested in picking up a printer depending on my review… Can’t wait to give them a favorable thumbs up.

    Na.. It will be the big inter-dimensional monsters coming out of the pacific that will do us in before we can use the 3d printers to build us large robots to defeat them. =)

    If this was 20 years (maybe) in the future, China could have sent them an .stl file and they could have printed our cases and we'd all have them by now!

    My two week old order number is close to 1400. If they started at 1, and only shipped 50 and have cases for another 50, then I hope there are more then a 1000 cases on board. In any event, I have a long wait, September or later. They say time goes faster when you are having fun, I guess I will design a few parts, play a lot of golf, maybe even take a vacation, and watch the time fly by.

    Keep in mind orders could also be only shirts or stickers.

    That's order number from the store? Wow if they started at 1, they sold a decent amount of stuff already. They are also selling filament too.

    Harry, did they ship yours with any tracking or was it "Surprise you've got box!" ?

    I had to leave town for work, so I hope it isn't sitting on my front step while I'm away.

    They're sending tracking numbers when they ship.

    Maybe they just forgot on yours? I have a tracking number. No printer yet, but at least I know where it is :)

    Well that would be unfortunate. I have a contact that wants to order 500 printers. No printer, no demo.

    why would they order from you and not directly from robo3d. That's assuming they are ordering through you.

    If they want to order 500 printers, smart thing to do is order one, use it. then determine if its meets there needs.

    seriously.. just contact harry and or the robo team ask for your tracking number..making excuses isn't gonna speed up your delivery.
