Is anyone backing this? I was really excited about it until I saw the prices. The bare minimum for just the (regular edition) book is $125, with the Special Edition $300. I missed out on Volume 1 and the only way to get both is by pledging $650.

Just insane. Dude has overcharged for his stuff for years, which is supremely disappointing. I’d love to back it and I’m a collector of books but this is ridiculous.

I understand people trying to at least cover their costs on a project, but I’d agree that the price is Very high. High res pics of all the original toys To show the detail of the sculpts would be interesting, but even then $300 would be asking an awful lot.

For perspective (to me at least), this is worth what it costs. An outstanding presentation and a fascinating look at the birth of the franchise.

He told me he’s not making any money off of this and that’s been his line for years. I don’t remotely understand how that’s possible.
