2020 SOUNDTRACK NEWS: UPDATE: Tele 80's flat out lied to me. They told me in an email that my second Jayce Collector's Box set was packaged with the two additional soundtracks I ordered thru them outside of Ulule. My additional soundtracks arrived but no second Collector's set. I am beyond upset. Have any of you had problems with Tele 80's and the Ulule soundtrack campaign?
ORIGINAL: If you were a backer of the Jayce and the Conqueror's of Light soundtrack and have received the collector's set, leave your comments about it below. I am less than thrilled with how the campaign was handled and I just want to vent about it. We know it was delayed by 3 months due to Covid. That's completely understandable. Personally, someone from Tele 80 commented on this video alerting me to the fundraiser. I was thrilled and immediately ordered two of the Collector's boxed sets. I was the fifth person to pledge towards the project according to Ulule. We were supposed to received these late September but like I mentioned before the pandemic pushed it back. As I write this, I have finally received one of the two sets that I ordered. I have sent an email to Tele80 regarding my second set. One of the three added trading cards came torn and messed up. It was shipped in a Tyvek mailer with minimal packaging support. That resulted in every single corner on the collector's box set being smashed. Also, the number is 290 of 300. Why didn't they go in order? I was the fifth person to pledge and you would think they wouldn't go backwards? Minor gripe, but c'mon.
I was also contacted outside of Ulule by members of Tele80's offering me other soundtracks, which I bought two (Mysterious Cities of Gold/Ulysses 31). Those didn't even ship with my order, which I have email from Tele80 confirming that everything would ship together. I sent them an email asking for an update on the shipping (really no word about it on the campaign page) and inquired about the additional soundtracks. I was sent a picture of my package (obviously hadn't shipped with my pledge order) and it didn't get postmarked until Dec. 15th, which was a week after I sent them my email. Tele80's is a very small operation and I congratulate them on their work, but there were several shortcomings with me.
In the end, I only received 1 of the 2 collectors sets that I paid for back in July. Delivery became New Years Eve instead of September (understandable). One of the trading cards was damaged including the corners of the boxed set. The additional soundtracks shipped separately (sitting in New York since Christmas Eve) when I was told everything would ship together. Also, fifth to pledge and received #290 of 300. Am I wrong in thinking this should've been handled much better? If you have a similar story, please share it in the comments. Also, the guy from Tele80's that originally commented on this video notifying me about the soundtrack campaign has appeared to have deleted his comments or account. What does that tell me?
VIDEO DESCRIPTION: If or until the official score/soundtrack miraculously gets released someday, this will be the closest we will get to having the full theme song. (Old words. New update. The theme songs and official soundtrack are on the way. Now, you can forget about my mix because the real deal is upon us.)
My intentions of creating this extended mix was to finally give fans a chance to enjoy the full unreleased Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors opening and closing themes.
