I posted on Asylum's Facebook page back on 11/16 and here was the reply (for folks who don't FB)

quote:
Hi Iggy, Pre press is done Im just waiting on an email back from the printer for them to begin printing. I'll know a more solid date then. I want to have the cards in hand before I release a definitive date. So it's not pushed back any further.

Hey Jim,

Left you a text, voicemail and email in response to winning the promo from philly show but still haven't heard back or seen anything yet.

This is John


THANKS JIM! You da man, and keep up the great sets!



Can't wait for my prize, any updates on this Jim? The show is now over a month ago.



Anyone else having trouble getting the Prize promo (if you won one of course) The show is now two months back and still can't get Jim to respond to anything after he called me to say I won one.

I facebooked him a message, and nothing. I know some members on blowout are anxious as well.

Lesson learned, will never preorder from an artist's set again due to this.

OK, I can understand why you might not pre-order another set from this artist but why lump every other artist into the same category ?

I spotted 1 of the Once bitten blood foil promos from the Philly Raffles on ebay...little pricey , but only 1 I've seen turn up so far

Don't blame all artists sets for what happens with one set. It's just like the people that won't commission any artists anymore because they were taken for a ride by an artist or two several years ago. That is still hurting alot of artists to this day....

I won one at the show and I am trying to get it delivered (since I left before my name was pulled) but I never receive any response or card. I received a phone call back in September that I won one but that was it. PM's were left with my address but no response there either.

In case you missed it this was posted on another forum this morning by Jim:

Hello all... Yes all the art is in and pre production on the set is complete. Going to printer this month. And should have a release date for early January. We want to have everything in hand before we set an actual date so as not to delay the set any longer. We thank you for your patience and hope that you guys are as excited about this set as we are!

This is why we never take in money for any of our sets until we have all the printed cards and sketch cards in hand.

This was already posted above but I want to personally post this...

Hello all... Yes all the art is in and pre production on the set is complete. Going to printer this month. We had an issue with the foil cards for the incentives. We should have a release date for early January. We want to have everything in hand before we set an actual date so as not to delay the set any longer. We thank you for your patience and hope that you guys are as excited about this set as we are!

Also just wanted to take the time and apologize for the delay on the set. I appreciate your patience. We are going to absolutely make this worth the wait.

Thanks,
Jim

As a side note, yes I also did learn a valuable lesson doing the pre orders early for the set. That will never happen again. There have been too many factors that contributed to the delay ranging from delayed art, international shipping issues, and now an issue with the foil cards which we are tryng to sort out. As far as any future sets go, both the printed cards and sketch cards will be in hand before the pre sale goes live. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience.

And all foil cards will ship starting this weekend. I fell behind trying to deal with the set issues.

And just to make things clear, my post was not to insult Jim in any way. It was in response to Cujobyte and Don Pedicini's posts. Some delays are bound to happen for whatever reasons.

Jim, good to hear, does this mean I will still be getting my promo from the philly show I won? You haven't responded to any calls, texts, emails, etc.

Just wanting to know if there are any updates to this set. I'm getting both anxious and nervous.

Jim posted on another forum on the 13th after several members asked about an update:

"Just waiting on cards to get back from the printer. Already got the proofs and such."

That was the extent of the post.
