 Serpentorslair Kickstarter Project YOU PICK!
Okay guys here is what i am thinking. We did a really good thing this year with our Sneak Peek Figure project, and it looks like the figures are going to be really nice. That said, it ended up being way to much work on my end. In 2015 what i would like to see us do is raise the money to hire out an item that all of you would all like to see us make. At the same time i don't want to be in in charge of raising and organizing the funds by myself. I was thinking what if we did a serpentorslair kickstarter project next year for some G.I.Joe item that we would all like to have. Here is where you come in. What would you like to see us do? Whatever you suggest make sure it would be within your personal budget to contribute to seeing it happen. Please post all of your suggestions below!

I'm thinking a Maskless Jinx or perhaps a blue snake eyes with bare hands(like he was in "A real American hero" Big lob would be fun too.

Running a kickstarter is a lot of work too FYI. A lot of work.

The incentives have to be enticing.
Bossfight was an exception to the rule, they had good cred already and a ton of people who knew about them from con and personally.

We are also talking a lot of scratch. Even one figure is going to cost a fortune to tool let alone a vehicle.

I will certainly promote and back a lair kickstarter project as best I can.

I would suggest something new. Not a character we all want because then you get into licensing and Hasbro lawyer speak.

Marauder John circumvented all of that by making a generic "gaming piece".

Perhaps make some sort of accessory for a figure in 1:18th scale that no one has thought of.

You could make a Drone, one solid piece, that way no extra tools no extra molds.

You could commission an artist to do prints of a Lair themed art piece.

How about a comic book?

The most important thing is to do your research and figure out your exact budget for all things involved.

but You can't just start a kickstarter, sit back and wait. It takes up a lot of time and a lot of marketing.

The difference is it will be done through kickstarter, rather than me collecting the money, commissioning the castor, card producer, and customizer, then collecting all the figures and cards once they are completed and mailing them all out myself, and paying for a ton of it out of my own pocket. Whatever we pick to make through kickstarter, it would have to be fully funded by the participants to make it happen, rather than me picking up the difference.

i am not sure how great a consultant I would be I have a 50 percent success rate. I can try to answer any questions you may have.

My first advice would be to look at successful kickstarter campaigns and how and why they were funded. Try to copy that model.

I know the give away art for the joecon backdrop kickstarter was an awesome incentive. Having the right incentive seems to be really important.
