Ok i have to ask....does anyone at Paizo even look at the kickstarter? do you even see what your "partner" is posting to your customer base.
1. Is paizo ok with this?
Note: i wish no ill will on Paizo or Archon but you guys are only as good as the company you keep as they say...and let you tell you one group in your little trinity is dragging you way down and trashing your reps.
- If you are a Kickstarter backer, all you have to do is purchase any one of these minis and we will send you all of the original Starfinder ones. For example: order Zo! And you will get the other 6 minis for free. More info about Kickstarter fulfilment can be found.....
All I have to say is WTF...now I have pay more to get my order...
Can someone confirm this....
As per a post from ninja division on super dungeon kickstarter.
- Starfinder is now fully moved over to Archon and no longer pulling attention and resources
If this is true are we getting our shipping fees back as they seem to be done with this project...cause if not that's frad strait up...
Great product piazo...crap licencing partners....and will the love of God someone give us a non smoke screen answer about wtfbbqsauce is going on with this project and where my money has gone.
Yep...same post as on the kickstarter, but nothing new from anyone in over a month. Also it was pointed out that 2 weeks ago paizo poked them to post an update...so far goose egg...maybe I should go back to posting daily updates on the lack of communications again.
I agree...it feels like all parties involved want this PR nightmare to just disappear...with how ND on the reg continues to ghost us at ever turn and seems ignore "requests" from paizo to speak to us im reaching max bs limits here.
But hey if we hold out long enuff, we can buy all new clone copies of smiliar mins from wiz of the coast in blind boxes...just cost you double the current buy in price we already shelled out..
Have you guys seen the latest update? Not only are we getting plastic instead or resin, now they don't even come assembled!. This is not what we paid for in any way whatsoever.
Now now...remember what paizo has told us.. we should be greatful as Archon doesn't owe us anything... we should be happy we are getting anything at this point.
Or in better words from Lord vader himself said in ep8..pray I don't alter they deal any futher...
Good will yes it does earn....but after this train wreck...im very much in the lane of I'll believe it when I see minis in my box...as this is now the 2nd time I have seen paizo post they have seen minis and they look good just wait till you have them...
And for ruff math..im 45+ minis deep...so at 6 ever 6 months comes to about 3 years before I get everything I should have had by this point...5 years plus is a hell of a time to wait...
'Archon Studio didn't owe you anything' - they make it sound like we should be happy to get something if and when we get it; after all the issues with this KS that is pretty insensitive. (as posted on the kickstarter page....)
have to say i feel the same way, Its kinda messed to see a post like that from a employee from Paizo.
after all the ups and downs....(mostly down), last i checked Paizo is the one who helped push alot of us to sign up for this Kickstarter... or did the post from Erik Mona want to be forgotten
"We are aware of some of the issues with some of the earlier campaigns, but we are confident in the work that Ninja Division has shown us so far, in the Starfinder miniatures they have already produced and sold at Gen Con, and in their ability to deliver this project in the time-frame they have promised."
at this rate it will be years before i get what i payed and you will be on 2nd ed Starfinder at this rate.
I'm still in the show me camp before i get on this hype train...and if I have read this correct I have to wait 6 months before I get my first wave if minis...so that means if I'm lucky January 2020..and all of 2020 before I get all my mins which have been paid for years ago...i have words but non are child safe or pc for this board.

Courage.....its spineless is what that is...
I know what courage looks like...20 year active military now retired..
and oh if i was criticizing ND you would know it. all i am doing is putting information up front and center for all to see how crappy of a job they are doing in BASIC COMMUNICATION on what is going on.
so here are your stats....
Last OFFICIAL UPDATE April 15 - 94 days ago

Things are continuing to progress, and my confidence that Ninja Division will have positive and specific news to share with you in the near future is high.
No offence, but how many times are you going to reword the same phrase. At this point it seems like alot of hot air and bs...
if any of that is true why is only paizo speaking...i would think Ninja Division would be taking the lead on saying they got this....not ghosting for what...2months or are they trying to break their own record for radio silence..
Well I figured paizo should know how crappy of a job thier partner is doing under the brand name of starfinder...plus we could start a betting pool and see if they break how long they went dark last time...

I am still unable go into specifics (and still can't estimate when we will be able to do so), but we have seen a lot of progress in the last two weeks.
Can anyone with some kind if authority step up and tell us what is going on...or will this drag out till wiz kids releases the new line and all this will be ignored.

All I can tell you is that I have seen further progress this week. I get that you don't want to be told "give it time," but that is the only answer I can offer.
I think we all can say we have given it time.. I mean we endured 5+ months of nothing from ninja division while they went radio dark...multiple events of someone over at ninja division throwing insults at us when we ask what the hell is going on...
I for one am tired...makes me never want to buy anything ever again from paizo if this is who you partner with...
At some point someone needs to say something concrete about what is going on...either from paizo or ninja division...not this string us along junk
Well in light of the toxic garbage from the ninja division owners posting in response to people asking questions. I would like to say thank you to the CSR here for doing an amazing job in maintaining professionalism when dealing with us as a community. I feel for paizo for having to be in business with people like this who treat their customer base with insults and condescending attitude.
Ok well this should be an easy question Someone from the paizo staff or through a CSR can answer.
1. Will the models made by Ninja Division which are owned by paizo as per the ninja division rep stated, be used by wiz kids to make the new line of minis?
2. If this will be a totally new line of minis from wiz kids...will it include star ships as part of the blind bag loot table?
It seems to me that someone touched a nerve. The fact that 3 CSR types dropped in here leads me to believe this. Might have something to do with the fact some store owners might not want to push the new 2nd ed pathfinder or any more starfinder stuff till this issue gets resolved. But hey it's just something I would like to talk about...not that I would ever accuse anyone in a negative way or doubt what the CSR types are doing in their busy time. I'm sure they wouldn't attack their own fan base due to our lack of knowledge or communication of what is going on due to radio silence.
I hope they have some kind of answer for us...i am finding it harder and harder to support anything Star finder...i have yet to buy anymore adventure paths...hell i see they are already showing an alien archive 3 book...
From where I stand, why should spend anymore of my money on a company that isn't helping making something right with a product they pushed.
Well...i guess this means I'm out about $200 dollars...but it's nice to see paizo is still getting there slice of the pie...nothing like getting fully painted figs for resale in your market while telling your base...oh you didn't get yours...well we can't fix that...but come buy ours at a higher price...
Thank you both for the quick response. I only asked cause the dm we have for PFS is kinda ruff on pet classes as he never has played one and fights us on rules when it comes to them.
So if there is a reference in PFS that says that, I need it to stand on and rules lawyer the critters to safety. If not it's going to be a long line of pets going into the blender.
Well at the moment I can't exchange the book as it was purchased from Amazon and they are sold out to an unknown date. And even if they did I would be cautious on doing an exchange as there would still be a high change of the same issue happening over and over based on what I have read in your own boards.
I have tried to get in touch with paizo Customer service over the last month with no luck.
I sent an email almost a month ago with no response and a phone call a week ago...
Kinda getting tired of waiting for any responce while my starfinder book continues to fall apart more and more over just general use.
