This Kickstarter is designed to let YOU, the fans, bring Rank & File's first volume back to print. Within this Kickstarter are some options to purchase the volume 1 reprint as well as the volumes 2 and 3 that are currently available as well as the R.A.H.C. guide that started it all! Not only are you able to pledge to pay for these guides, there are some additional options to enjoy the Rank & File experience.
Strike a Pose
Above is a sample of the 8x10" print you would be receiving if you chose this wonderful option.
Above is a sample of the Action Shot pledge. You may pick your favorite 25th Anniversary action figure in the very pose used in the Rank & File guide's backgrounds.
One and Only Souvenir
I will updating this portion regularly to help illustrate the final piece. To continue with the notion of open and transparent, this is an option that was heavily researched to get fair pricing as well as get a great looking piece together. I have talked to all the required vendors and they are ready to go the moment I give them the word. To be quite honest, I wasn't sure how well this would go over and didn't want to invest too much into something beforehand that I didn't necessarily have to.
Below is the sample of the certificate of authenticity that will be included in the the "One and Only Souvenir" option.
Below is an image of the "One and Only Souvenir" options. Your generosity so far has helped me open my collection to all. I think there is something for everyone!
Thank you for your time and your contribution and let's make the Rank & File guides remain available for all fans, collectors, and enthusiasts.
Risks and challenges
To be up front, this is my first Kickstarter and I ask that any hangup that may occur during the time the Kickstarter is running be shown patience. I have been self-publishing these guides for six years and production runs smoothly. If you ordered a volume 1 option, you will have your order in hand within two months (provided money collection goes smoothly). Clear communication will be in order to convey any issues. All guides will be shipped media mail within the United States and First Class International for foreign orders. Special situations will be addressed after the Kickstarter has ended. As of 8/3/2017, volume 1 is pretty much ready to go to the printer now.
Any purchased prints should be out within two weeks of money collection. If you order the action figure package, you will convey to me your action figure of choice via the payment portion of the Kickstarter.
As it stands, the portion I foresee being a challenge (though not much of one), is the "One and Only Souvenir" option that is action figures displayed in the Rank & File volume 1 guide. This portion is being written before the Kickstarter was published and I intend to create one option that will require the winners to give me a list of their top ten choices (within the confines of what I specify) and they will be honored within a first paid basis. If this is a popular option that becomes too tedious, modifications will be made.
**It is important to note that the images in the Rank & File guides are cleaned up in post production to remove dust and major inconsistent factory errors on the sample. I want to be fully transparent when I offer these one of a kind action figures and say they might not match 100% with the image in the reference guide (for those who like to track the minutia).
