Yeah, these last days admittedly make me fairly nervous. Just like last time.

That was super cool of him to do. Very humbling.

Can't believe you're only $800 short right now of your $8,800 goal. I had no idea there were seriously that many Mirage fans still lurking around. Sometimes it's easy to forget probably because they don't post much and are in the shadows. And probably a lot more out there who are unaware this project exists.

I've found there are a lot more Mirage fans than one would expect, they just don't use these forums. It can be hard not to gague the fandom though this site's lense sometimes, but yeah, they're out there. Comic/art collecting sites/groups, etc. + they're a generally older crowd who don't wanna wax geek as much as we do.

I'll keep it advertised at the top of my site until the campaign expires, see if that nets a few more interested parties.

Also put a notice for it on the Turtle Flakes FB page to see if that hits any collectors or Mirage fans.

Here's hoping it makes that final stretch!

I'm sad because I can't contribute to the fundraising until the end of this month, which it will be over by then. Will you still take order after the fact Andrew? Poor planning on my part caused me to miss this.

I would think that a lot of those Mirage fans just get tired of the FW junk cluttering the fandom. Lol

Probably will have Rich take pre-orders after the fundraiser, but we're not looking at that yet.

Yeah, I tend to think most of the potential "me"s out there would look at a board called "The Technodrome" and assume it's 100% a Fred Wolf shrine. I guess it was, more or less, at a certain point in time. 10 years ago my general TMNT views around here were considered by most to be...

I think a lot of Mirage fans are also now 30-40+ year old adults. It's not like they're all on forums mostly consisting of people in their 20's or teenagers.

Watch it now... lol. I'm 36. Hahaha

Seriously though... a ton of Mirage fans probably walked away from the fandom as it is now because there isn't much here for us.

I help admin Turtle Power Entertainment and it riles up the fans EVERYTIME I make a "red banada" post.... its kind of fun to do though.

Like MSM, riling people up makes for good content.

Okay, we're only $500 off target now, 3 days to go, hopefully can make it.

Andrew, can you state here for us backers so far, what happens down the line if the target isn't somehow met, given the promise in the campaign it still goes ahead if more than 50% backed (which it is)?

The campaign is 93% funded as of this post, I'm sure he'll accept the loss out of his own pocket for the less than $800 he'd have to pay. He did the same thing with Odyssey where he took an even bigger loss because he miscalculated the printing and shipping fees for the book.

97% funded actually. I had no idea Cubed had deputized authority to speak on behalf of Andrew's financial strategy.

We will be good. But even if we weren't -- and we will -- my plan was wait for my taxes and/or additional pre-orders to make up for any shortfall come January.

Didn't notice it was at $8,578 already. So you're literally there.

Wow, now the extra money will cover some unexpected extra expenses too. Hard to believe fans shelled out nearly $9,000 for this project.
