I do too.  But I'm staying strong.

Those are nice, but I'm hoping they aren't going to start pulling a confrontation move.

The scale may be the dealbreaker for me. The sculpts are great, but if the humans tower over 32mm scale stuff, most if it becomes unusable for me out of the board game. And my motivation to paint or pay for the plastic drastically decreases.

I don't believe that ... but I'm having other misgivings, especially the fact that I find watching those game play videos extremely tedious, partially because the game play does not grab me.

One thing that they've said about the game play videos is that you have to liken this more to something like a role playing game. Watching videos of people playing D&D can be a downright snoozefest, whereas playing the game yourself is obviously much more engaging.

It's been a really odd campaign. They're still gaining backers, but so many people seem to have jumped on that early bird "just because" and are now leaving that it's grinding to a standstill. Hopefully they can get it moving forward again.

I'm still in.... but am like 99% out... The value thing is not a big concern for me.  The question about scale does and they haven't really addressed it or shown any scale shot that I am aware of. 14 more days though so I am still waiting and watching.

      BACKERS 1,371 Quick Facts

      Cosmo runs Android 9 (Pie) and also supports Linux OS, such as Sailfish OS and Debian, with a multi-boot option
      Built to be the only device you need to carry, and small enough to fit in your pocket, it’s a true all-in-one replacement for both your mobile phone and your laptop.
       
      Media Coverage

      Slashgear  "This is just the latest and greatest of the machines the company’s made to fill the gaps between smartphone and laptop“
      ZD NET  "Tiny Android, Linux laptop: Cosmo Communicator is also dual-screen phone”
      The Verge “tiny Android laptop …doubles as a phone”
      The Register  "Planet brought the clamshell QWERTY back to the market 17 years after Psion made its last PDA”
      Engadget  “intended to serve as a phone, not just a pocketable productivity machine”

      The Planet Story continues...
      At Planet Computers innovation is at the heart of our company.  Earlier this year,  we successfully delivered our Gemini PDA product to more than 7000 Indiegogo backers who supported our mission to kick start a new mobile computing revolution. 
      Now, we are ready to push our vision even further and you can be part of it.
      In the process of developing our new device we asked our Indiegogo backers, users and followers what features they wanted to have.
      We are excited to announce that we are extending the range of Planet devices with the Cosmo Communicator, our new flagship device.
      The Cosmo Communicator is a modern dual-screen clamshell-based mobile communicator with an integrated keyboard. It is built to be a great pocket computer, a superb mobile phone and an excellent high resolution camera.

      The Cosmo features dual colour displays: it features an external colour touchscreen display for easy phone call control and notifications.  Tucked away inside the beautiful and sleek award winning clamshell design is an ultra-wide 6” colour touchscreen display providing ample space to create on the move with a fully functioning  keyboard integrated into the device. When open, the innovative clamshell also acts as a support of the device, allowing you to type comfortably.

      Cosmo’s newly designed backlit keyboard, allows you to comfortably work at night or in dark spaces such as on long plane journeys without the need of external lighting.
       
       
       
      Disclaimer; I own the Gemini, their previous communicator. 
      Yes, the keyboard works and you can write on it at a decent speed. 
      Unfortunately, on the Gemini, Libreoffice on Debian really lags... like my painting... 
      (Yeah, struggling to catch up.)
      They're promising a faster CPU with more cores on the Cosmo, but so far I don't know how much faster. 
      MUltiboot OS is possible (I have Debian as default, Android as second and Sailfish as the third on my Gemini), but currently it requires a fiddly process where you download OS images, erase the internal storage on the device, then use a PC SW package to flash it with the images. And multibooted devices don't support the usual Android update system.   
      (I expect the process will be improved later)
       
      I'm currently undecided and have about a week left to decide...

      This is a small campaign that features a set of Michael Anderson Models. Only one honest pledge level, that's it.

      Tre manor is at it again...   
      Another well-designed warband.    
       
      Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures.
