The Owl.
Plus the mystery figure in the hopes it'll be cool enough to make me go for the six pack. Currently, I only want four of them and one more cool figure would probably be enough to make me pull the trigger.

Maybe as it goes on, they'll allow 4 packs.

Day 6 is complete and we are almost half way to our fourth stretch goal. 9 birds in hand and the 10h is close. SDCC opens tonight as a preview. The real convention and news starts in the morning.

Should be a fun 4 days of news and reviews. If you see an article about the Ravens please post a link for the rest of us.

As for the mystery figure, the silhouette is the same the 4H used on the home page for the 4th of guy and the number of ?s under the image can be replaced with The American Eagle. This is just speculation on my part.

WEBBED DUCK FEET?!? THAT'S UP TO YOU!

Update #11 · Jul 18, 2013

Things are going SO much better with our Gothitropolis Ravens Kickstarter campaign than we'd ever imagined they would so we've decided to possibly throw in a little freebie as a little token of our thanks to all the support that action figure fans are showing us.

So, in order to say "thank you" we've decided that if all 6 of the stretch goal characters become "unlocked" (and they're rapidly on their way to becoming just that), we'll throw in a free pair of interchangeable webbed duck feet with every Kickstarter Exclusive Minotaur the Duck purchased.

You asked for it. We wanna do it. So keep pushing this campaign with us and let's make it happen.

I am just getting home so what coverage did we get from day one of SDCC 2013?

Day 8 is complete and we are about $1500.00 from the 5th stretch goal. This is the first day since initial funding that we did not unlock an additional stretch goal. This is not to surprising when you think that many people who would be interested in this project are most likely in San Diego right now. It does appear that the Rooster will unlock on Saturday and the mystery 12th bird will get revealed at the booth at SDCC on Sunday. That big reveal should give us a great push to the 6th stretch goal, a 12th figure, and webbed feet for ol' Minotaur.

Day 9 is complete and we are more than half way to our 12th and last figure. That means when The Screaming American Eagle unlocks the webbed feet upgrade to Minotaur the Duck also unlocks. This last figure will also put us at 75% of our last stretch goal, the Bone Wings.

Day 10 has come and gone and our final bird has unlocked. The Screaming American Eagle has unlocked and with him we unlock webbed feet for each purchased Minotaur the Duck figure. The next stretch goal is $20,000.00 jump so this will take longer but is very much a reachable goal (we are already more than 77% of the way to both sets of wings.

Four Horsemen Studios have said that they would be willing to add additional stretch goals and additional sculpted pieces but that might change shipping times. All backers should post their thoughts about this at the KS page so that the 4H can accurately gage if this is an acceptable option for their backers.

Day 12 is behind us. Another 20 backers joined our flock today and we are still on track to get Feathered Wings around Thursday of this week. Most Kickstarter projects have a slow period during the middle two weeks put will pick up speed again during the last week. With two and half weeks remaining in this project the Bone Wings are still easily within reach. Maybe the guys will announce more stretch goals and prod us backers to dish for more.

Day 13 has lived up to its reputation becoming the slowest day of the project. My guess is people's wallets are in shock from SDCC as exclusives hit the websites. With some luck we will still be able to reach the next stretch goal this week. A little more than a third of the way through this project and 84% of the war to the (currently) final stretch goal.

I wish they'd do a 4-pack or 6-pack where you can pick who you want.
I guess I'll get a 2-pack of Raven/Duck and add the ones I want. :?

Bill, just go and do a pledge for something level 4 and up then go back and "add-on" what you want from the add-on list at the bottom, just $33 per bird after the initial pledge. (Just add the value to your initial pledge, after the project is completed the Horsemen will send out a survey asking what you wanted added to your pledge, that's when you tell them which extra birds you want)

Yeah, I know. It is just more cumbersome that way.

Understand that... Unfortunately, Kickstarter doesn't let them change what's offered after the project is opened so that's the only way they can do that...

Day 14 is past and while that slow middle ground of all Kickstarters has grabbed hold of our flock we have not lost all momentum. Now is the time to use all that social media we participate in. Go to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit, Instagram, any place that people who enjoy pop culture congregate and talk about and mention the Ravens. Give people a link to the Project page then comment those links at the project page and here or any thread about the Ravens. Let us know so we can all go and push this project through and over the top of those last stretch goals.
