Well, looks like Hasbro is doing their own version of a kickstarter for a new release of one of the all-time classics. I don't know if their site for the crowdfunding would be considered as a commercial site, but I'm sure it will be easy enough to find. I'm in!
is not your typical 3D printable figurine campaign. It is a fundraiser to help the evacuees whose home was destroyed by the volcano. 100% of the profits will go to the Town Hall of Los Llanos de Aridane. And as a thank you for your help, you will get the 3D printable of the Fire Giant Epic Boss Hefesto, made just for this occasion, and his exclusive bust for this campaign. ----- This bust is exclusive to this campaign, but there's also a full statue that may end up for regular sale later. It's crowdfunded on a popular wbsite for buying .STL files, so I can't link there. 3 pledge levels, $15, $50, and $100. And there's way too many of the $15 pledges right now... (I'm in for $50)
http://venturebeat.com/2016/03/13/how-my-kickstarter-blew-up-my-life/ I thought it might be interesting and relevant to link this here. Hope it doesn't break any rules. The article is by the project creator and discusses in what seems frank terms his serious mistakes and how he has been fixing them. I am fascinated by the phenomenon of crowdfunding and I am particularly interested in how what appear to be really organized, well-planned projects by intelligent people can go wrong. Well, this article explains one way it can go wrong, and it reminds me of some problem projects which we have seen in this forum in the past, even if it isn't about miniatures.
