Project Update #8: Modern Army Action Figures, G.I. Joe Newspaper Ad 1982-1989 by Philip Reed

If you were one of the backers of the kickstarter campaign, then get ready to start checking those mailboxes! All of the books are here and ready to ship. Better still, all of the required shipping supplies arrived yesterday, so Philip is all set to take tomorrow to pack all of the books for mailing on Saturday (and Monday for the international packages). This means finished books should start reaching all of you starting next week!

Modern Army Action Figures, G.I. Joe Newspaper Ad 1982-1989 by Philip Reed

There’s a big update to share from Philip Reed’s G.I. Joe Newspaper Ad Kickstarter Campaign before he heads out of town. The printer has completed the books and Philip  should have all of the hardcovers waiting for him on Monday, October 9. He’ll prep the packages throughout the week, and on October 14 start shipping out the books. 

His goal is to ship all books before he leaves for Europe on October 20, but that may not be possible. He’ll post an update next week when he has a better understanding of how the packing/shipping is going.

There are six backers who have not yet completed their surveys. On October 11, one week from today,  Philip will issue refunds to any of those six who have not yet completed surveys. If you’re one of the six, please handle your survey ASAP so that he can ship you your rewards. He’d much rather send you books than send a refund.
