i hope cool mini will learn from this , and make sure that all backers get their copy at the same time
one can always hope... but alas,
this is a quote from their latest kickstarter (The World of Smog) "you may not necessarily receive your rewards before the product makes it into distribution in your own country [...] We hope that the special price and exclusive items you will get during the Kickstarter will make up for any such possible lag. However, if this is something that is not acceptable to you, please do not back this project but instead wait for the retail release"
so no, it looks like non us-backers will have the same treatment [ie waiting an extra 2-3 months (or more)] in all upcoming kickstarters from cmon as we got in arcadia quest...
