Less than $1000 left to go for the bone wings and raven skull (yep, the Horsemen have added a skull to the wing set) and there's a new goal at $175,000 (less than $11,000 at this time) to unlock the flamingo...

I backed a Black Raven Battle Pack and added on one extra figure (can't decide which yet!) plus both set of wings. It's pretty pricey for the extra stuff, but I think I'll enjoy these a lot.

With several retailers picking up exclusive figures the number of birds could break 20 by the time they ship in the spring. All the currently announced birds will be available next spring at Store Horsemen EXCEPT Minotaur the Duck. If you want MtD you must pledge for him during the KS. You will get a second crack at everyone else in the spring.

Day 22 and the Bone Wings and Skull are now unlocked. We are also already half way to unlocking the Pink Flamingo. The Bone Raven Skull was just announced this morning along with setting a stretch goal for the Pink Flamingo and like the first week of this project we backers jumped in with both feet. With the Pink Flamingo a go we can assume (yes, I know) that additional birds, exclusive to different retailers, will be announced this winter. So, how baby birds will make up this flock? What retailers have asked to get on board? What will the next stretch goal be?

Here is a big question - With 9 Days and 23 hours as I write this, Could we backers take this project to $250,000.00? Can the first Kickstarter project by Four Horsemen Studios raise One Quarter of a Million dollars?

Day 24 and we now have a little more than 7 days left in the pledge phase of this project. The Pink Flamingo was unlocked today and a new $185,000.00 stretch goal announced - Figure Stands! Not only that, figure stands that will work with any figure released by Four Horsemen Studios to date. we also got to see the sculpt for the webbed feet that will come with MtD and Pinky and an in progress shot if the Flamingo head. The guys were not kidding when they said they keep us up to date now that they were back from SDCC.

So much happening in this final count down to the close of the funding phase that I still see $260.000.00 as a possibility. There is actually a contest at SourceHorsmen to guess the final pledge amount with a Queen Alluxandra (in package) and Xetheus (in opened package) as the prizes. Check it out.

See-- once again-- figure stands-- those should be a freebie stretch goal-- but needing to buy them -- and for 3.00 a piece.. that is insane..

Agreed. Stretch goals work best when they're freebies.

If I wasn't in at the beginning because I liked the concept, there's nothing in the stretch goals that really changed my mind.

That being said, I'll be getting my pair and probably another couple this week. Ah, if only they offered a "you pick it four pack" at a discount! Then I'd probably have picked up another one or two at the $33 price. But the lack of a greater discount at intermediate sizes like 4, 6, or 8 will cost them a couple birds from me.

Right now I'm thinking Raven, Duck, the lizard guy, and American eagle.

A Kickstarter for a no-name property has raised over $180,000, almost 3 times the initial goal, with a week remaining.

I'd guess the 4H are probably ok with how things have worked out regarding stretch goals.

Day 25 and the final week to pledge. The stands are almost unlocked, an 'all-in' add on has been set up for the hard core completest. This lat week should be an amazing roller coster ride as we push on to the end. Where does everyone think this ride will end?

Day 26 and look at those numbers! 1000 backers, 300% to original goal and 106% to all stretch goals and still 5 more days to go. The pictures of the rough wings are gorgeous and the clarifications to the add-ons is very helpful. Now to guess just where this will top out. Can we hit $200,000.00? What about $250,000.00?

Day 27 blows us right past $200,000.00. New backers are still finding their way to Four Horsemen Studios and the boys from Jersey have stepped up with better pictures of the Battle Pack items and their ideas for a flag cape for the Screaming Eagle. Any one who set the Kickstarter reminder for this project will be getting a notification tomorrow so expect some more big jumps in the numbers.

Day 28 and the dash to finish line starts with a more than $10,000.00 surge in the last 24 hours. Is there anything left to do? All the birds are unlocked. All the stretch goals have been hit. And yet the backers keep on coming to the party. So what will the top end be come Monday?

I'll finally be pledging this weekend, and I'm sure I won't be alone. 8)

Those members of Kickstarter who have not pledged but asked for a reminder will get those eMails overnight and will be swinging by to place their bids this weekend. Should the guys at the studio through out one more stretch goal at $250,000.00?

No thanks to more stretch goals unless it's some sort of freebie for people who pledge.
