There's quite a lot of interest in the old toy. I've been doing my own investigation into whether the book is actually viable and if there is a demand for such an item. Much of my findings are interesting and not all that concrete but my gut feeling says it's there.
The best figures I can go by, though, is the number of views for the thread I have had running on MegoMuseum
. At this stage, over 13,000 views since January, 2016. I'd say that's a reasonable amount of interest in the old Big Chap.
KickStarter is definitely in the works. I need to build up interest in the Project first. Ensure I have the support and launch the campaign sometime next year. Around March... or something like that. Word needs to get around first.
