Hit the shelves won't do, as they may never be sold through retail at all. We need 100 mail orders to launch the project.

Steve, just curious but is that 100 booster sales in total or per individual booster number (like 100 93s, 100 94s, 100 95s).

Thanks.

100 each.

Note that this is a two-step process. Step 1 is for 100 people (through this forum, the BBS, and Facebook) to say they will order the item(s). Step 2 is for those same 100 people to then actually place orders for them. And step 2 will have a hard time limit.

Well depending on the actual composition of the packs, I might feel compelled to order more than one. I might need more than one Fed LTT or something for example.

Especially when Fed Admiral comes out. I'm a big fan of big convoys. Now I don't know how many other people feel this way, but it is a consideration.

Well, if you "vote" for "2 Booster 94s", then that counts 2 towards the needed 100. It is 100 orders, not necessarily 100 people. (I mention 94, as it would have the majority of the LTTs.)

Also, I cannot stress enough: This "verbal" vote is only the first step. Once the orders are opened, the real vote will be orders. So, if 150 people say they will buy Booster 93, and the orders are opened, but only 75 actual orders are placed, then it is a no-go. The boosters cannot be printed without actual monetary commitment.

So, if you are just joining the discussion on the second or third page of the thread, please go back and read the first point.

Then put me down "officially" for 2 94 and 95. I might do 93 as well, but since they are "leaders" you won't usually have more than one of them in a group.

But I never run a scenario with just one tug.

I would certainly purchase all three of the proposed boosters. If you put the item up in the store as a pre-order, I would happily put my money down to get the process moving along.
