  1. This is not a campaign to get help to release the Box but one to give fans a chance to jump the line and make sure they get a copy, so often these boxes come out and get snapped up by collectors. Also by Pledging fans can get loads of extras and bundles.
    The box will get a be out in stores whatever happens on the 24th of September. 

  2. Thanks for the clarification!
