Based on discussion happening in the KS comments, it sounds like it might be a three-headed troll, with Ron's, Ed's, and... someone else's heads.

 

I only just now noticed the Trebuchet add-on is $8, unlike the first two, which were $6.  I should be more observant.

I'm going to guess the Justin Doll's head

Interesting, someone on Facebook just noticed the standing harpy is basically the sea hag with wings added and new legs...

Wow, look at the change in Hours to Next Goal compared to last hour!  The Greek reveal really had an impact!

Is anyone else hoping for ten or so more columns to round out the entire (mainstream/commonly known) pantheon? I'm really hoping for columns of Athena, Apollo, Hephaestus, Aphrodite, etc...

To be honest, I hope it's just generic heads. I like Ed & Ron, but I really don't want to see them every time I need to use a figure like that. I guess they are just trying to please their fans in all.

If we do wind up with the Ed/Ron/Justin giant, I'm wondering if there don't be a "fan favorites" at the end, as those models are being added as backer goals.

thats what happens with cool content :) 

 

So i was hoping for $200 max, and friend was $150 so i pledged 350 on day #1 (backer #140 or something).  Now. in my tracking sheet i put in some estimated #s for stuff ($50 for expansions since expected that, $14 for other dragons, etc).  So i raised mine to 250. Friend is at $288.  just raised our total to 538. 

 

Bones 4 was $400 for me...$200 for him.  this is gonna be ugly. hehe wife will not be pleased. gotta sell more stuff to cover cost.  heheheh

While a cool idea, I don't envision it happening. They'll probably leave it at these two statues, sadly.

to be fair, i want the underwater one for the eye of the deep.  unless there's a colossal kraken or so, i could see myself selling models from a set like that.  

honestly,  my dragon turtle project has put me off from dealing with underwater stuff for a while hehe.

 

** Assumption is that the Eye of the Deep is part of the underwater expansion

The existing Bones kraken is pretty darned big. I wouldn’t put it past Reaper to put out another one, but I wouldn’t bet heavily on it either.

 

...of course I also wouldn’t mind being wrong on this.

its not kraken sized :P :P :P    sadly, i had that, and i sold it at the time. now, i actually could use it but too expensive to buy it again :( but i may have too.  i need the tentacles for something.  Then, hoping for a larger kraken but even a partial is good. large body, and tentacles sticking out of water.  There are some like this already from other companies.  may end up getting one of those at some pt.

So I saw this expansion and go so excited I decided to throw more money at the KS, then I realized I still haven't gotten up to my initial pledge with this one added.  Is it weird that I was a little sad because I wanted to add money but didn't need to yet? :unsure:


Not at all. I think the Greek expansion is going to be the thing that finally pushes me over my initial pledge, and even then, not by all that much.

      Help a small bakeshop survive these COVID days....
       
      https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sweet-alfas-cookbook/x/10803452#/
       
      Small Town Family Bake Shop at a Critical Point
      Sweet Alfas Bake Shop & Kitchen has been serving the Elizabeth, Parker & Aurora communities for 3 years. Melissa & Luigi Casaretto’s  journey began in 2012 as a fundraiser selling Peruvian Alfajores for their daughter’s dance event. It eventually flourished into a successful online cookie bakery. In 2017 they bought the kitchen they used to rent in Elizabeth, Colorado and Sweet Alfas was finally a brick and mortar shop.

      In 2020, the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic started to take shape and as early as February we started to see our sales dipping. We improvised and started serving curbside and specialty meals to survive. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to save the bake shop and kitchen after all. Our business survives primarily on our wholesale efforts and our biggest accounts had to cut their orders by 50%. After reviewing our options we had no choice but to temporarily close and halt our 5 person operation.

      After mulling over what to do next, we decided we were not giving up without a fight. In order to raise funds we are opening our kitchen publicly to the world in the shape of a bakery and kitchen cookbook(as well as other unique perks we are offering).  All of our secrets, techniques and ideas will now be available in your own home. With your help we can catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through. 
      In 2019 our community stepped up and helped us fund a new mixer when we were struggling. While we appreciated the community effort and love our community we have always wanted to give back. So instead of asking for handouts, we are asking you to help us fund a 100 page cookbook with detailed recipes and photography. 
      What We Need & What You Get
      By purchasing our cookbook you can help us catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through with some expansion of our kitchen, bakery and staff.

      You’ll notice we have some tiered packages. We are not only going to offer our cookbook, we are going to include shirts, hoodies, master class videos and gift cards.

      Our goal is $20,000 which is what we were asking for from the SBA. At this time we’ve received very little confirmation from the SBA about our loan. So instead of asking for forgivable money, we want to fund a cookbook for our most loyal customers and supporters. We would rather earn it and show you some love back.
      The Impact
      We have always wanted to make a cookbook and now this opportunity has forced our hand. So on the positive side, we see a win/win situation. We can provide something special globally and save our local bakery, maintain our wholesale accounts in Parker and Aurora, keep our employees and remain in Elizabeth, CO.
      Many of our customers across the US can not try some of our more traditional baked goods because it’s expensive to ship them. So this gives everyone a chance to try our baked goods.  They say restaurants don’t survive after a year of being in business. We’ve survived 3 years and were finally making the right strides.  We’re gonna be here for a very long time and we may even continue pressing cookbooks in the future. Risks & Challenges
      This will not be a short order(pun intended). We will have a long road ahead of us and we are still not in the clear from everything happening globally during this pandemic.
      We will use the funds to catch up and reinvent ourselves(a 3rd time) in order to adjust to the "new normal" of Covid-19. We are hoping to add a fryer and overhead extinguishing system to provide some fried goods, donuts and churros.  We will need to negotiate with debt collectors, property managers and our accounts. We will need to heavily market this cookbook and our bakery.  Melissa and I both come from extremely competitive marketing and sales backgrounds in the tech industry. We are capable of overcoming these hurdles and getting Sweet Alfas back on the map.  Other Ways You Can Help
      We are all in a crisis, not just businesses. Many people are out of work, struggling to pay their bills. We understand and wish the best for you and your families. There are non-monetary ways to help us out.
      Tell your siblings, parents, best friends and coworkers about this campaign. You can share our campaign on facebook and more using the Indiegogo share tools!

      Also, they've chosen 'Flexible funding', but since they're at 45% already, with 29 days left, they have a decent chance of making it. 
       
      Me?
      I'm in it for $5(no perk pledge) because they make cookies...

      So here's Ettinstone, a tile system that should work with most other 25mm tile systems. It's magnetic, double sided, versatile, and super easy to build with. Also it's roughly about $1.20 per 2x2 tile before shipping at the lowest level, and about $1.00 per tile at the highest level. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215751272/ettinstone/
       

       
      The tiles are made in ABS plastic, so it won't break easily either. :)
       
      The Gallant Goblin made a video that really shows off how quick it is to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble with this set, as well as showing how well it works with both Warlock and Dwarven Forge tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvehn-WzpjU
       
      Stretch goals at $18k and $26k for half walls(2x1") and quarter walls(2x0.5", AKA pillars/wall corners).
