5 days ago – Mon, Sep 26, 2022 at 10:24:42 PM

Greetings, backers!

September is nearly over, but we have one more livestream event for you this month.

 Join us this Friday at 8:00pm ET / 5:00pm PT for the premiere of Episode 1310, as Emily and the bots must endure THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME! 

In next week’s premiere, post-apocalyptic space colonists fight a villain bent on destroying their home, featuring the imposing Jack Palance! Join Emily and the bots as they suffer through episode 1310: THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME.

Want a quick first look at the episode? Here's your official trailer:

Plus, stick around after the show for a LIVE DISCUSSION featuring writers and cast from the episode.

SECRET AGENT SUPER DRAGON TRIBUTE RAP

If you caught last Friday’s Tribute to Secret Agent Super Dragon, you saw our update to the iconic “Secret Agent Super Dragon Theme Song.” We wanted to make sure those of you who missed the livestream event would still get to experience this marvel, so we’re making it available as a FREE standalone video in the Gizmoplex.

This tribute rap is the work of MST3K writer Ross Bryant, whom you might already recognize as the mind behind the “Mother Crabber” song in Beyond Atlantis.

Enjoy!

THE TURKEY DAY TOURNAMENT RETURNS!

That’s right, it’s time to VOTE your picks for the episodes to be featured in our 2022 Turkey Day Marathon! THE TURKEY DAY TOURNAMENT is your path to make your opinions known.

In keeping with tradition of the last few years, your votes will be deciding four of the episodes we show in this year’s Turkey Day Marathon, in a single-elimination episode battle to the death! Two experiments enter each battle, but only one experiment moves on to the next round.

New votes will go up on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays by noon ET, and close out 36 hours later. And even when we get to your top four choices, we’ll keep voting to declare the 2022 tournament winner (purely a ceremonial title).

You can also discuss your votes in the forum threads for each battle, if you feel compelled to make a case for your pick!

Enter our first MST3K HALLOWEEN CONTEST!

Waverly and Growler would like to formally invite your participation in our first ever Halloween contest, to go with our first Halloween special (in 3D)!

Enter your best MST3K cosplay for the chance to win exclusive prizes. Dress up as your favorite host or bot, or as a character from one of MST3K's many featured movies! You can submit photo entries in the individual, group, or pet categories by heading to our HALLOWEEN CONTEST entry form. Entries must be received October 16. 

Then, you'll be able to vote on the best costumes between October 20 and 26. 

Winners will be announced during our livestream premiere of THE MASK on Oct 28. So don your giant hands muumuu and your most menacing look, and enter today!

UPDATE: Rewards, Shipping, and 3D Glasses

It's been a couple of months since we last reported on the status of Kickstarter rewards, so we want to take a moment to share a few updates. But first, our standard reminder:

You can always find an up-to-date schedule for all Kickstarter rewards, along with answers to reward-related questions, at the MST3K HELP DESK. 

But, for those of you who want more specifics about what's happening, and what to expect, here's our most current plan and timeline for sending out your rewards:

  •  REWARD PRODUCTION: We're still waiting for our manufacturing partners to complete and deliver the last two rewards we need for this year's shipment: the CHALLENGE COINS and the CONCESSION KIT. We're told that we'll receive both rewards no later than mid-October, which would let us ship out most of your rewards in November, so that you have everything before the holidays. Of course, the first step is still…
  •  CALCULATING SHIPPING COSTS: As we explained in previous updates, we're doing our best to ship almost all of the rewards in a single shipment, which should keep your individual shipping costs as low as possible.

     While we had hoped to start collecting shipping fees in August, our shipping partner concluded that upcoming USPS price increases could make the prices unpredictable, and has been working with UPS to get more competitive rates.

     We're now told that we might not get reliable numbers until mid-October. As a result, we're not able to start collecting your shipping fees just yet, because we don't know how much we need to charge.
     
  •  COLLECTING SHIPPING COSTS: If the current schedule holds, we're hoping to finally charge you for reward shipping in late October. Then, as soon as we receive your shipping costs, we'll process the order and aim to send it out within 1-2 weeks at most. That means that if you pay your shipping by the beginning of November, you should receive your rewards by the beginning of December – in time for the holidays.

"But wait," you're thinking. "What about our 3D glasses? We need those sooner!"

  •  SHIPPING 3D GLASSES: In order to make sure you have your KINGAVISION 3D GLASSES in time for the premiere of THE MASK in 3D on October 28, we've decided that we will need to send them out ahead of your other rewards. So, here's the plan:
     
    •  If KINGAVISION 3D GLASSES are your ONLY physical reward – and that's true for about 6100 backers – we'll send instructions on how to pay for shipping in the next two weeks. As soon as we receive your shipping fee, we'll send out your 3D glasses within 1-2 business days, and you'll be all set.
       
    •  If KINGAVISION 3D GLASSES are NOT your only physical reward – which is most of you – we will not charge you for shipping before sending out your 3D glasses, so you should receive them no later than OCTOBER 15. We'll include the shipping cost for the 3D glasses when we calculate your full shipping fee.
       
    •  If you DIDN'T ORDER KINGAVISION 3D GLASSES, or just want to make sure you've got a backup plan, good news: you'll be able to watch our 3D episode using any pair of anaglyphic 3D glasses, which means you can order a generic pair for less than $1, and they'll work just fine.

So, that's where we stand right now. If you're frustrated or disappointed by the ongoing reward delays, please know that we share your feelings, and are working as hard as we can to get your rewards packed and shipped out as soon as we possibly can.

In the meantime, we're incredibly grateful for your patience and understanding as we continue to deal with COVID-related delays and unpredictable shipping rates.

That’s all for now, friends! We hope you’ll join us this Friday for A Tribute to Secret Agent Super Dragon, and we will #SeeYouInTheGizmoplex!

Your Friends,

Team MST3K
