Yeah, I have had bad shipping from Wallos before. a Stacked Deck card sent PWE that either tore open in transit or got swiped(would you send a 180pt card PWE with BW Cards stamped on the front?)

The replacement set of cards came PWE as well.

One of mine that was damaged was the Sara card as well.

They sent them in a 9 pocket page but the cards that got damaged were partially sticking out of the pockets.

I sent an email to Malorie and she said they would send replacements for the damaged cards.

Looks like the Dreamgirls preview boxes are coming out this week.



Creator Bench Warmer International about 2 hours ago

I don't have an exact date yet, but the books are being processed with the publisher and will be shipped very soon. The Dream Girls Preview Boxes and special cards go out this week.

Is this like the third time the book has been at a printer

I don't know how they didn't have a printer all set by the time the Kickstarter ended, plus they raised what, 3x the original goal...

They still owe a bunch of stuff. A signed 8x10, the oversized auto/kiss card (?) I forget which it is, and the book. Ridiculous for getting 3x what you were trying to get in funds raised and it's nearly a year from when it started.

Clearly Wallos has made the wrong "decision" in promoting cards of trump and Hillary with three plastic gems than hot models with the same three stupid plastic gems. Anyway I hope that douchebag comes through with this product you guys are waiting way too long for. I'm rooting for you guys and I hope the books are really nice.

Well, he already had the basic designs for Dreamgirls completed. Nothing that came in the "preview" boxes was anything notable, and I mean high-end and/or new design type. Seems like he just took half a year off after raising an extra $40k.

Back when the Kickstarter campaign first launched I was still a pretty rabid BW collector. I went over to the Kickstarter page and almost pulled the trigger 3 or 4 times, but something kept me from doing it every time. For some reason I just couldn't do it. Glad I didn't.

When this finally sees the light of day, I'm sure t will be nice, but I think the response at that point will be less "yes!!! awesome!!!" and more "well, it's about time."

Other than "America The Beautiful", is there any other BW product in the works?

Saw some Gold Edition Previews pop up online over the weekend.
Same photo sets as the 2012/2013 series.
Getting kinda tired of looking at the same pics with just different background designs.

A printer for the book is set but it won't be done for several months until the regular Dreamgirls cards are released..

What is this, "new" printer #5 at this point? I sent them a note asking where the 8x10 auto/extra 'gold' autos/octokiss card and whatever else was part of those certain pledges. The response was that those will all be produced around the same time as the regular Dreamgirls release, and will be received before the book.

I figure we'll get the book, in some form, in about 2018 and Dreamgirls sometime late next year at the current rate of absolutely nothing in the production pipeline.

Looks like they don't even reply to comments on the Kickstarter page anymore.

I think I'm asking for a refund on this..

If you supported anything other than JUST the book, you cannot get credit/refunded. Believe me, I asked months ago.

As for the other stuff, who knows? I was told it's all just waiting to be signed, other than the book, which is in eternal limbo due to (make up your own absurd reason #6), or whatever we're up to.

Here's the listing for the minimum ($500) support level that got you one of the actual boxes of cards. Highlighted are items not even received in a YEAR after the campaign...

---------
Reward:

**For a $500 pledge, you will receive a thank you in the actual Bench Warmer Dream Girls Premium Photo Book memorializing your name in Bench Warmer history for all future collectors to see.
**You will receive a Bench Warmer Dream Girls ELITE PREVIEW Trading Card Box! The box will commemorated with a special stamp. It will contain 20 Dream Girls Preview Cards inside all numbered 5 or less. At least 12 of these cards will be autograph cards. Also, as an added bonus, the box will be signed by our Host, Lisa Gleave.
**A LIMITED EDITION Bench Warmer Dream Girls Premium Photo Book signed by at least 10 Dream Girls Models! **You will also receive the ENTIRE Special Edition Bench Warmer Dream Girls Kickstarter Promo Card Set (18 Card Set)!
**You will receive a signed 8x10 Dream Girls Photo from one of the models in the book.
**You will receive a Special Edition Octokiss 8x10 Jumbo Bench Warmer Card.
**You will receive a Sweet 16 Special Edition Bench Warmer card signed by 16 models.
**You will also receive 10 random gold foil Bench Warmer autograph cards.
**Plus, you will get three special exclusive never-before seen Dream Girls PDFs emailed to you, as well!

So, basically, they've gotten out some cards in about a year. The cards weren't even anything really exceptional or new, either. Even more messed up, is the announcement of a new set that's supposed to release early next year, but none of the highlighted items that have been paid for over a year (above) have been fulfilled to backers.

As long as your pledge didn't included a Dream Girls box you can get a refund I believe. I did the $99 pledge, I mean loan..

WOW..


"As an apology, for those who have not already received compensation or a substitute of product, we hope you will accept this in place of the book: We are giving everyone who ordered only the book (at the $60 Level) a box of Dream Girls cards (valuing $109.95 on our site).

Anyone who ordered the signed book (at the $99 Level) will get a signed box of Dream Girls cards (Still signed by 10 of our models). We will also send you a bunch of free autographs, as well .

We may do the book in the future, and, if we do, you will all receive a free book. However, it is not a guarantee the book will be created. For now, we can guarantee the delivery of the cards by the end of February. "

What an epic mess. Hopefully all the remaining rewards are sent out next month, too.

Wow, an epic fail for Wallos.

What did he do, spend all the money on Decisions cards?

The plastic diamond market is cutthroat.
