The coins are getting shipped
9 days ago – Tue, Jun 28, 2022 at 07:57:17 AM

Hey everyone,

we have news for you today! After a few weeks of discussion and a lot of spreadsheet files getting exchanged between us and the fulfilment houses we are more than happy to report that the first parcels of coins have been shipped. Let us share more information below


USA/ Canada

After several iterations of the new coin lists and explaining thoroughly what we need happening with the Stretch Goals, the Mystery coins and the shipments, we now have sent all the files to Quartermaster Logistics according to how they need in order to ship the coins to you. We also noticed that there were some pouches missing before sending the first coins so we were initially planning to split shipment in 2 waves but since it took the full 6 weeks to fix all the files and the bags are ready now, we are thinking of actually waiting the bags to arrive through plane next week and ship them all together. 

We are waiting for QML's response and according to that (and the airplane cost) we will either start shipping coins early next week, with a second wave 10 days later or ship all the coins 10 days later. 

We will post more on that next week.


UK

We have sent the coins to Shipquest. We are building the files needed for fulfilment according to their latest instructions and we expect them to proceed with them asap.


EU/ Rest of the World

Happyshops have started shipping the coins in EU and will continue to do the next week as well. Next regions will follow too. There might be a chance because of an internal error that you will receive a message from them twice about your order getting prepared. If that's the case ignore one of the two messages. If you have changed your address and you receive a mail stating the wrong address you can contact them directly and resolve this. Shipping these coins was really complicated for them and we did have several calls to work through the details (in one of them they informed us that they now see their coins in their sleep) but it seems that we are now all set to ship everything!


Thank you for your patience while we are completing this process. Here is a small reward, a sneak peek on what we have coming next!

That's all for today, we will post more next week according to the information we receive. Feel free to ask any questions in the comments.

Fulfilment update- the coins are in the fulfilment houses
about 1 month ago – Thu, May 26, 2022 at 01:28:41 AM

Hey everyone,

We have some good news! After a very turbulant few weeks the coins  are finally at the fulfilment houses and deliveries are starting soon.


What a month


EU Shipment

The coins in Happyshops arrived about a week late (on the 28th of April) and since then we've been working with them to build up the sets correctly and clarify what exactly we need shipping. It looks like our project is the most complicated they've done so far but it looks like we are on a good track to start soon. They still have some questions about them and since it is a national holiday in Germany.


UK Backers and UKGE

The coins that are intended for the UK backers have now been shipped to our UKGE booth where they will be delivered to Shipquest to ship to you locally. That also means that if you are in the UK and plan to visit the show you can pick it up from our booth directly (Hall 2-201) but you'll need to e-mail us up beforehand to arrange it. If you are not visiting the show (or simply you prefer it delivered at your home) we will ship it through Shipquest afterwards. 


USA shipment- yet another delay

Thanks to this shipment, we were "lucky" enough to have our first random customs inspection. This really worried us since we have heard of horror stories from other publisher about shipments taking literally 3 months before getting released from customs or costing tens of thousands of dollars. We avoided the worst but the shipment was still stuck in customs for about 2 weeks and we had to pay almost $3,000 for this inspection (that we had no say about- they could literally charge us as much as they wanted).

Having to pay the equivalent of 3 people's wage (in Greece) didn't really help with the shipment of the project and as mentioned we have already lost money shipping the coins (more than $10 per backer) so if anyone can help us it is more than appreciated (check the previous update for more information).


After the shipment cleared the coins were tranferred to Quartermaster Logistics that is now arranging the shipment.  Unfortunately since the coins were delayed and because of the big scope of the project they initially estimated 2-6 weeks to start shipping the coins! We are working towards some solutions to reduce that time for them and it seems they are working.  We'll hopefully have a new update when we return back from the UKGE (June 6th).


That's all the news we have for you. We will be posting more news soon, aiming the week between the 6th and the 10th! 

We have prepared the next campaign (and it's glorious) but we want you to receive your coins before we launch :)

Shipment update- The coins are arriving!
3 months ago – Fri, Apr 22, 2022 at 12:28:58 AM

Hey everyone,

the coins are arriving to the fulfillment centers!

After months of planning, changes and charges, the coins are almost at the fulfillment centers! 

As you know, all the orders are going to be fulfilled either by Quartermaster in Florida, US or Happyshops in Germany. Let's dive into the details below!


Shipment #1- USA: ZIM Rotterdam

The coins heading to North America are currently on ZIM Rotterdam. We're very lucky it left Shanghai before the lockdown which has caused lots of delays and shipping cancelations since then. The situation there is horrible but at least your coins escaped!

It recently went through Panama Canal, and is planned to reach the Jacksonville port on the 27th (initially planned to arrive on the 18th), carrying 6,580kgs of our coins (and games)!

You can track this here.


Shipment #2 to Germany: COSCO Shipping Aries

The second shipment is heading towards Germany, to the Happyshops warehouse who is going to fulfil shipments to EU and Rest of the World.

Currently sailing towards Hamburg, having left Rotterdam. The current ETA is to reach Hamburg on the 23rd (initially planned to arrive on the 14th), carrying 4700kgs of coins (and games)!

You can track this here.


Next Steps

For both locations all documentation has been prepared and pre-approved from our partners so we expect (and hope) that we will be able to clear customs 1-2 days after they arrive. 

After that it takes some time to get to the fulfillment centers, get inventoried and then dispatched to backers. We have already provided the documents with all the backer addresses to the fulfillment centers so they will ship them out soon. Depending the complexity of the project it can take 2-3 weeks for everything to happen and this campaign, because of the Custom sets, is one of the most complicated so we expect to take at least 2 weeks.


Asking for Support

As we have mentioned before, the freight costs have been increased 7-10 times since we were quoted for the project. Thanks to your help we were able to produce a ton of coins and we are really helpful for your support! Unfortunately, the downside is that we now need to pay a massive amount to ship the coins through the ocean. 

We have already brought the coins and have arranged payments but we would appreciate any help you can provide us! For this purpose, we have created a series of T-shirts, Mugs, Mousepads and other accessories that we are adding now to our website. If you can and want to support us, please consider ordering any of the new products (or any of our games or coins in the website) or supporting our Tip Jar.

Let us emphasize, you don't need to do it and you will get everything that you ordered, but it will be a great help for us if you do!



We will also post more news about Legendary Metal Coins season 7, stay tuned :)

We've got a date!
4 months ago – Fri, Feb 25, 2022 at 08:18:46 PM

Hey everyone,

We are happy to finally be able to confirm that we have an update for the shipping of the coins!


The factory did manage to pack the coins just before the Chinese New Year but it was too late to organize a shipment in time since pretty much everyone was trying to do the same. When the factory reopened we started procedures immediately to book a shipment. It took longer than expected to organize the shipment but we now have arranged that everything is going to be leaving the factory on the 26th of February.

The coins are packed and waiting for the track to pick them up. After that they will be put in a boat and get directed to the fulfilment houses in USA, EU, UK and Asia to reach you.

Here are all the coins packed in all their glory.


It seems the transit time is a bit longer taking the whole March in transit and arriving in the fulfilment houses in early April. 

When they arrive, the orders will be assembled (which will probably take about 3 weeks) and then shipped to you. 

In the meantime we have also completed our part of the production in Greece and have already shipped them to the fulfilment houses where they've already arrived at. 

This is what the current timeline looks like:


EU : Backers will receive their coins May 1st-May 25th

UK: Backers will receive their coins May 10th-May 20th

USA :  Backers will receive their coins between mid April 20th- and mid May 

Rest of the World: Backers will receive their copies during May 


Dates are subject to change, since international shipments are still quite volatile with ongoing changes but we are working with the best to ensure they will arrive without any unexpected problems. 

Expect the next update next week after we have confirmed that the coins are on the boat!

Thank you all for your support and our patience!

Happy 2022- Project status: The coins are ready
6 months ago – Fri, Jan 14, 2022 at 11:14:07 PM

Hello everyone,

Happy 2022 to you all! 

We wanted to post a new update for you, since the coins are now all manufactured and we are now packing the coins.  This is of course no easy task since there are a lot of coins and a lot of different orders as well. To make sure everything is packaged correctly the assembling team is double-checking everything which makes things a bit slower. Here are some footage of the coins in production or assembly:

These are just the cards that we will use for the packaging of the coins for the stores

We are confident that the coins will all be packaged by the 20th of January and then we will ship them to the fulfilment houses around the world. As you may remember, in this campaign we made coins in both Greece and China. The final coins from Greece will be in the fulfilment houses in early February. The main issue now is that shipping coins out of China before the Chinese New Year (February 1st) is tricky because of the high demand. We are trying to make this happen before the 31st of January but if we don't manage to do that, the coins will leave China between February 6th to February 15th. 

Let me break this down per region to see how the Estimated Times of Arrival look like at the moment:


USA: The coins are going to be shipped from China to Quartermaster Logistics in Florida. It will take 25-40 days for the journey and 2 more weeks after arrival for assembling and shipment. If the coins leave China on the 28th, backers will start receiving them in mid March, otherwise at the end of March or early April.

Canada: The coins will take the same journey as the US coins but they will go to Lion Rampant for local fulfilment in Canada (so that you can avoid any import fees and custom delays). This will cause about a week more for you to receive your pledges, so it will be between end of March to mid April. 

EU: Some of the coins are already in Happyshops, Germany and lots of them will be shipped from China to Germany. We expect them to be all shipping in early March. 

UK: After the coins have reached Happyshops we will forward all coins for UK-based backers to Shipquest in the UK. This will probably take another week to arrive so expect to receive your coins in mid-March.

Rest of the World: Depending the cost and the location the coins will either be shipped from Happyshops or from QML. You will probably start receiving your pledges in late March. 


All the above projections are if everything goes according to the plan. We have done our best to ensure everything will sail smoothly from now on but there can always be some surprises when you are shipping tons of metal around the world.  

To finish on a different tone, we have also been busy at work developing the new designs for the 7th season of the Legendary Metal Coins! Of course we don't plan launching that before we have shipped everyone's coins :) 

We can't wait to show you what we have in store, including something very different! Can you guess what's coming?
