Some interesting bits in this thread for me. (and a lot of waffle )
I'm actually reassured that there has been a reference to two licences being needed as even if the film company had licenced the movie rights this would not include the non-film score music in the soundtrack. So Kevin stating the most expensive bit would be licencing the Little Richard song would make perfect sense.
Pure speculation on my part but possibly the lack of info on the website is due to the length of term on the licence. Once the first machine is "released" they may only have a certain amount of time before it expires. This in turn could mean that there then is an official deadline to get the 250 machines built. By not having info on their site maybe they are buying themselves a little time to go from the prototype to the finished models. As I said this is pure speculation on my part
Kevin and co could kill all this tread pretty easily though with a bit more communication. My gut feeling though is that 99% of the "worried" posts are coming from people who aren't actually still paid up in the deal. I'm 100% paid and would like more communication. However, I'm actually not that stressed about it. If it was $8k then maybe I would be more stressed but for now I'm happy to wait. If I'm still waiting this time next year then I'll probably change my tune.
The one thing that I do think is very wrong though is the couple of posters who haven't had their $250 back yet. Again I suspect this is poor communication/organisation rather than anything more sinister but this simply shouldn't be happening
Hope we all get some communication soon
