I think at $200k you get a digital version of the book as well.

I know I've only got a couple hours left at this point, but I'm still trying to decide if I want to get this...

I decided to go ahead and do it, what the heck...

I've been thinking about downsizing my collection considerably, but the one thing I would keep would be all of the Vintage Collection stuff, starting with the VOTC stuff and forward. Maybe hold on to the 3.75" Black Series carded/boxed items too, but other than that, keep only the opened stuff and then moving forward, only collect openers of any line other than the Vintage Collection which I'll still get MOC/MIP/MIB items to keep. So this book would be a nice companion piece to all of that...

$231,249. Over 4x the initial ask! Congratulations to Blue Milk for coming up with a product that's enthused so many in the community. One stretch goal after another met. Looking forward to the chapter on concepts, the poster, the coins... man, all of it. Can't wait for the book to arrive. Btw, any secret prize for hitting $225k?  :P

They did announce (to backers) that Left Coast Graphics will be producing a bookmark in the same vein as their Classic Kenner Vintage Stickers, but "with a TVC twist" - no pictures yet, and not really tied to the $225k goal either, but still a neat addition IMHO.

Something that made me chuckle this morning, on the activity tab of my kickstarter profile, for this project, it shows the percentage funded as 462%  ;D

Sounds interesting. I'm going to have to scour my email or the kickstart page for that tidbit.

I wonder if they'll offer up the gold coins as a purchase option to US backers. I can just imagine variant hunters going nuts on the secondary market.

I did see that if you backed the book at legendary level or higher ($200 or above I figured) that they would include the gold set of cons as well.

There is nothing to read all the way down here.  If I had something else to say, I'd a said it in my post.  You may proceed to the next post.

A book about TVC is 462% funded, but Hasbro can't seem to get the actual figures in our hands. Hopefully this will be a wake-up call for them to finally fix distribution.

It's been over a decade and distribution just keeps getting worse....I wouldn't hold your breath.
This is the way.

It appears that people are receiving their books at long last!  Looking forward to getting mine.  I took your advice Jeff, and I ordered it through BBTS.  I wonder when they're going to start fulfilling their orders?
