I need to learn it's pointless having an opinion of what they'll do as they'll do it before you even finish your sentence:

I think the lack of chest pockets here versus the Nurse means the shirt will be an overlay like the ladies' suit jacket instead of a whole sculpted torso. Lemme strap in ready to be wrong...

This is up to $368,806 now. Crazy amount of stretch goals reached with 60 hours to get the last few.

Just a few hours left folks. Someone on Hisstank earlier today said the Kickstarter's been pulling in an average of $2,488 an hour for the past day. Crazy.

The many great stretch goals are making for some tough decisions for those of us who didn't go all in. Speaking of which, the expired early all-in pledge level at $419 is just a crazy value. $499 is still a pretty good deal but I just can't drop $500 on this.

I'm trying to hold to 12 but it's very tough.

I backed for a single unlocked item so I can get the sailor to display with my father's memorial display.

I just convinced myself to go all in at $500.

Comes to about $16 a figure, and Im rationalizing it with the fact that I can sell any I don't want to recoup some cash if needed. As if that’ll actually happen lol

Same lol, i was in for six figures before this but you can't beat that deal. This are 35 dollar figures at the minimum.

Yeah, that last stretch goal tonight literally pushed me over the edge to all in.

It really is the best way to go. I'd probably end up buying 18 figures, which is $420 at the 12-figure reward. ($269 + $150). For $80 more, you get 12 more figures.

And you'll definitely be able to get a decent return for any unwanted figures when these eventually land.

Anyone else get the invitation to the backer kit for this yet? The emails were supposed to go out starting yesterday, and Im dying to see what they have to add to this campaign. Hopefully it wont be too $$$ to add some stuff. I dont have any experience with backer kits, so this is new to me.

The email notification I got said that not everyone would get them all at once, but everyone should have them withing 24 hours, so we're still good.

I'm likely just sticking with my sailor figure.

Yep, they said it should show up anytime within 24 hours. I know it's a smaller operation, not worried about getting the invite. Just more ansty about figuring out how much I'm going to be dropping more than anything!

Got my BK email; but I sadly can only afford about 2 extra figures than the 1 I Pledged for. We can't make a series of payments to BK for each payday between now and closure, can we?

I wish I could’ve gotten in on this. So many great new parts. Definitely going to be able to make definitive versions of so many characters when these finally hit.

I feel like there was talk of a tank top torso early on, but I haven’t seen any pictures of it. Is there one, or just the shirtless torso?

I'm tempted to get the 4 pack of tan flight suit bodies and a head set to create some new "Ghostbusters" for my 1/18th scale Plasma Series Ecto-1.

Edit: And I did end up getting the tan flight suit set and extra head set #1. I can worry about possible 1/18th proton packs next year.
