In the latest update from Joel over on the #BringBackMST3K Kickstarter page, he clarifies a few points about the Season 12 Pledge Drive in addition to detailing a few changes. We wanted to share those changes here on the official MST3K blog, but you can read his full post and explanation by clicking here.
1. ALL PLEDGE REWARDS INCLUDE "REVIVAL LEAGUE MEMBERSHIP."
First: we're changing things around so that all rewards now include the basic MST3K Revival League Digital Membership kit, which used to be a $15 pledge by itself. If that's the only thing you want, you can still get it by itself… but we thought it should also be included with every pledge. So yeah, now it is.
For anyone who ALREADY pledged $15 for the DIGITAL MEMBERSHIP KIT, please don't worry: we want to make sure we take care of you! If you want to upgrade your pledge to get something else, you can! Just go make a new pledge, and make sure to use the same email address. Then, once you've made another pledge that includes the MEMBERSHIP KIT – or if you already did – just send an email to email@example.com and let us know. Once the pledge drive ends, on August 17th, we'll start processing refunds for all duplicate pledges!
2. THE "COLLECTOR'S BOX SET" IS NOW REGION-FREE!
We've worked through some details with the manufacturers, and I'm happy to report that the Season 12: Collector's Box Set will now be region-free. For our friends outside of North America, that means that the DVD and Blu-ray discs will be playable in all players, with no region encoding issues to worry about. And, of course, it will still include an exclusive disc of bonus materials and behind-the-scenes content that won't be available anywhere else.
3. WE'VE ADDED "PLEDGE BUNDLES" TO GET MULTIPLE REWARDS!
It also turns out that a lot of you miss the "pledge packages" from the original Kickstarter, which let us give you a little bit more for your pledge. We thought it was better to let you get just the items you wanted this time, but – as a lot of you have pointed out – that also makes the individual items more expensive, because each reward costs less to make if more people get it.
So, starting now, we're adding THREE NEW PLEDGE BUNDLES:
