Thank you. Yeah, unfortunately, that's how KickStarter works.
Mind you, it's not over yet. Not by a long shot. Right now, I'm still adding a few things to the book. I added the recently released Super7 'ALIENS' Warrior, Classic Toy Edition to it recently. That item has at least 6 pages devoted to it now.
The book is set up to go to the next phase, though. The editing, and type setting is all organised. Printing is organised. Distribution... It's all ready to go. I still have about 6 months worth of work no matter what and KickStarter would have made it all easier, but it's definitely still happening. It's just going at the same pace prior to the campaign. In this regard nothing has changed. That's a good thing. The only difference is it won't be released by Christmas, 2017, that's all.
I may have another crack at KickStarter at a later date. Until then, I'll put some savings behind the Project to reduce the necessary Target Goal and use the crowd funding service to close the reduced gap
rather than fund it entirely. That will take time for me to save up, that's all.
In the meantime, I'm keeping the website ticking over with various News items and reviews of various 'ALIEN' action figures. I'm hoping to post a review once a week - well that's the target, anyway. Keeping the website live and maintaining traffic is important now. It's a kind of awkward time for me - a failed KickStarter campaign can be mistaken perceived as a failed Project. That's just not the case but I've got to maintain an online presence with regular updates.
I'll be posting a review of the older 2004 SEGA figure sometime soon. It's an older item I've owned for a long time and worth posting about. ...plus I have a couple of other items I want to review. ...and then there's all the new 'Covenant' stuff coming out very soon. Content wise, the site is good.
