EXTRA FUNDING CAMPAIGN


Pledge Total: $48,039.00 CAD (updated on May 22nd, 2019)

 

DP9's Extra Funding Campaign for our Peace River & NuCoal Core Plastic Miniatures is now live on the DP9 Pledge Manager website. Our Kickstarter raised over $40K CAD, unlocking our initial funding goal and numerous stretch goals, but not the $50K CAD goal we really wanted to reach. Hence our Extra Funding Campaign, please support Dream Pod 9 as an Outside Backer and pickup a new plastic miniatures army for Peace River, NuCoal, and/or Utopia at $70 CAD each, or one of our other great Backer reward level deals and maybe a few Add-Ons as well.

Login and create your pledge manager account, select your reward level and any add-ons and then checkout paying your pledge and fixed shipping cost. Backer reward packages are expected to start shipping in Summer 2019.

HGB Kickstarters Update: Utopia, Peace River & NuCoal Molds Plastic Test Pops Preview!

The Utopia, Peace River & NuCoal plastic injection molds have been assembled and are now in testing by the manufacturer. They did the test pops of the plastic robot sprues this week and took photos, which we are sharing with this update. They have shipped off the samples of all the test pop robot sprues to Montreal and we expect them here the end of this week. We'll then check them out, noting all the issues we spot, put them together to test the parts fit and do some test painting as well. Its important to note that these are test pops of the plastic sprues made by the injection mold manufacturer to find issues and get them fixed before delivery of the molds. You will see some parts (arms, legs, etc.) have dimpling on the sides as not enough plastic made it into the parts cavity and the gates to these parts will need to be enlarged and new test pops done. This is all part of the manufacturing process, once they have our comments on these test pops they will make fixes to the molds and then do more test pops to send us for our eventual approval and shipping of the molds to Canada. Where a local plastics manufacturer will pop all the plastic spures for us this summer.
