The new 'Alien Abduction' pledge level, at $300, gives you less choice but still a heap of add-ons.

 

Almost as good a deal as the BotB level.

It's confusing, but I think that you still have choice. I think that this is the game plus $300 credit, the same way that BotB is the game plus $325 credit.

 

(In the middle of their latest long and confusing update Mantic says: "Of course youre free to spend your credit on whatever you want from the core add-ons and you can further add to this too if you want more of everything or are looking for things like extra scenery or miniatures like the Burning Cattle.")

Yes; it says:

 

To help you choose which Core Add-ons to pick, we’ve put together our Recommended Choice below

 

You don't have to have those ones, it's just a pointer for what gives you a good spread of everything.

Good isn't it

 

I'm a bit sad they've decided not to cast the 'missing' (either lost in transit, or the factory didn't send enough) season 2 stuff in metal too

 

My nameless team is all metal (best bit ever), and I've got a bunch of metal teratons too

 

as for Mars Attacks it does look very spendy, but so was KoW and Dreadball if you wanted everything, but $150 will give you plenty to play the game with (and a lot more than a 'store' buyer would get)

I'm sticking to my BotB +$50 for whatever that $350 pledge goal was. I'm sure I will be able to spend my $325 somewhere. ^_^

The $350 pledge bonus was an alternate sculpt for one of the things they are giving to (almost) everyone as the $500K stretch. I think that the $500 bonus was the flag thing and the $350 was a general.

 

Considering the timing of the drop, I think that $500K stretch announcement was a key part of the problem. I can't sort out how much was yet another "bugs later" statement and how much was removing the uniqueness of the $350 and $500 bonuses, though. For me personally, it removed the pressure to try to figure out my pledge yesterday, so I'm still sitting at a simple BotB and waiting for Mantic to either clean up their add-ons or for the pledge manager.

$350 to get one single limited edition mini?

I think I'll be in the $310 corner over there.

Update #43, near the end, has these two bonuses:

If anyone pledges $350 or more during the campaign (pre-survey), including shipping and add-ons, well include a Kickstarter Exclusive Martian Supreme Regent that will ONLY be available on this Kickstarter.

 

If anyone pledges $500 or more during the campaign (pre-survey), including shipping and add-ons, well include a Kickstarter Exclusive diorama based on the two Martians Raising a Flag artwork! This fancy diorama will ONLY be available on this Kickstarter.

Update #58 described the $500,000 goal as being these figures:

 

If we hit this goal, we will tool an alternate version of the limited-run Supreme Regent figure, and give away one to every backer with a pledge of The Will of Man ($100 and Early Birds) or up. We will also make this figure available to buy as a Core Add-on for $8.

 

...

But!

Thats not all. Well also tool an alternate version of the limited-run diorama to create a Martian Army Standard Bearer ...

The Banner Bearer offers a Capture the Flag type scenario for the game and when we hit this goal, well make him available for $8 as a Core Add-on and throw him in FREE into pledges of Alien Abduction and BLOODSHED ON THE BATTLEFIELD (or a pledge of $300) and up.

Mantic seems to be scrambling today to stem the slide, adding stuff to the $300 levels, but I'm just not seeing anything that will encourage me to struggle with the complex add-ons and pledge now (as opposed to waiting for the post-KS pledge manager).
