That is my goal this time, buy the biggest stretch goal pledge I can and let the add-ons come come retail.

Blue Prophet I sympathize with you wanting more time between Kickstarters but I really doubt they are having an issue moving product. They still manage to sell out of many things even around the time of the KS projects.

I was in the same boat when this last KS happened I could not afford to buy everything I wanted and even now I am having to stop myself from buying more product to save for KS4. I know for me I just need to be more realistic about my budget and what I really feel is necessary in terms of builds versus what would just be nice to have extra of.

I keep making the mistake of buying most of the add ons and not just getting the 10 set pledge levels where the real value is.

We went over the price thing before (small bummer) and I agree Pusher Pokorny :P has his addicted (I'm one) and the Chinese New Year schedule, so unless it is stretched to two years between, I don't see the time-line changing. 18 months would be better than 12 to help us fixed incomers (old people).

Wow, those open waters are expensive. $32 for 16 unpainted. That's $2 per tile, the most basic 2x2 possible. A regular unpainted water set has 28 pieces plus 2 arches, which is $1.40 per tile not counting those arches.

I understand that this order of open water tiles is a new set, probably a smaller run, so probably cost them more than the initial Kickstarter run of items. But there was no picking and packing, so it is simple to package up. I'm disappointed a bit with the price. Still going to buy some if they are available well after KS4.

The timing of this restock (and stocking of KS3) could not come at a worse time. I reiterate that I would vastly prefer a Kickstarter every 18 months. Having stuff delivered from the last one right before the starter of the next one means there are a bunch of new things in stock right when they want to raise money. I sincerely think the Kickstarters would be larger if spaced apart more. Plus more inventory would move if people knew they had another 6 months before then next one after stock arrives from the last one.

Thanks for the heads up, I just picked up three unpainted Open Water Sets and two paints. I think less than 20 are left of the unpainted Open Water. Please save me a few more for a month or two from now after the KS. Ha ha, ya that's going to happen. ;)

DF Suzy - I have an older (new paint) order along with the (new new paints) and 3 Open Water Sets, you have my O.K. to combine the orders to save boxes. :P
