    i'm interested in the Jupiter, but will probably skip as well.


    I only want a large plate resin printer because I'm no longer satisfied with FDM for large pieces and have no need for mass printing.  I'm still going to use my small plate for individual models.


    I think I'm really more interested in the Phrozen Sonic Mega 8k

  2. I never really cared for MMF's requirement to pre-pay for projects on their crowdfunding platform.   The only thing it really prevented was removing the ability to back out if something goes sideways.  I rarely backed out of Kickstarters, so it is what it is.


    The only downside I see to tribes right now is just the proliferation of platforms that provide these services.  I think I'd prefer a single mediocre platform than having to remember/track all the subs and payments that I'll have as everything spreads out.  With Tribes, this will be the 4th platform (Patreon, Tribes, Loot and Infinite Heroes stand-alone)


    My biggest beef with MMF is all the elfing pop-up adds.  Oh my God!!  Has anyone subscribed to their MMF+ offering?  Would it be worth it just to remove the adds?

    My example may be a bit extreme, but yeah, emergency supplies should be stored as securely as possible.    

    Waterproof packaging just makes sense.


    I'm looking at this as more of a convenience case for this I could need in my car.  Not a true emergency kit.

    • The new Reaper bucks / Brinewind Trading post setup.  Even though it was popular, I was never really a fan of the auction so really liked having this option.
    • The new MSP open setup and the Pre-registration option.
    • The pre-order of swag


    • Food options for Meet-N-Greet were okay, but also kinda meh.

    But,  in the realm of "that's different," I use one of my extras for an emergency kit. It sits nicely in the spare tire well and holds a number of useful things.


    I like the thought of this.  I get Gadgetman's concerns, but that's not an issue for me.

  6. So, I've spent the better part of the day cleaning and reorganizing my hobby storage closet.  In doing so, I've discovered that I have no less that a dozen of the Reaper paint cases.  Both the old rounded style and the newer square style.  Since I have different solutions for both paint storage and model storage, all of these are currently empty.


    My question - Has anyone else amassed a significant number of these cases?  If so, are you using them for anything other than paint or model storage?


    Right now these are just sitting around collecting dust and I'm trying to decide if there is anything inventive I could be using them for, or if they should just be donated somewhere.

    Does patreon have a way to follow creators so you can easily see their public posts, but not becoming a patron? 


    There is a "Follow" button on the creator page, but I have not used it so not sure how well it works or what content it shows you.


    I just clicked it on a couple, so we shall see.
