176 Pages It Is!

After photographing the Matchbox Sea Fury, 1975 Mego Munchkinland, and going over what remains to photograph and include in the book it is time to announce that Action Figure Carrying Cases is coming in as a 176-page hardcover book. I could squeeze and compress photos here and there to keep the page count down, but I'd rather give these carrying cases some room; especially the cases that serve as both transport/storage solutions and playsets.

I still have the Mego Emerald City and Enterprise playset/carrying cases left to photograph, as well as a few other assorted oddities, but at the moment I'm on track to complete the pages before this project closes on Sunday. I'm waiting for a couple of packages which should arrive before Friday, but we'll just have to see how reliable the post office is this week.

Please don't forget to share this project with your friends. At the moment we're at 92% of the goal, and with luck and by raising awareness we should be able to reach 100% by the time the clock reaches zero.
