I was one of their “Super Early Bird” backer and hence I paid US$59 (S$85) for it with an additional US$15 (S$21) for shipping to Singapore. In total, I paid US$74 (S$106) for it.

Shipping was supposed to happen in April 2015 but like any other Kickstarter projects, it was delayed. It started shipping in September 2015 after a 5 months delay and I received it on the 24th September 2015.
