Chasing 88

And we’re through - that’s clear plastic hex bases going to tooling! Thanks to everyone who has made this funding possible.

We really do appreciate all of your help so to say thank you we’ve doubled up and included two sprues of bases into Striker! instead of the one we promised initially. In addition, we’ve also now included one sprue in Keeper and Jack.

In addition, you can now add Hex Base packs to your pledge as we’ve now added individual sprues and a multi-buy option to our list of extras that already include paints, teams, individual MVPs and the awesome Hex-Board.

Right then, more figures ahoy!

$155,000 - Number 88

If we pass this goal we will create the Number 88 MVP – read more about him/her/it on the DreadBall Website!

He or she (nobody is quite sure) appeared from nowhere, disappears entirely between matches and never gives interviews. This, of course, only makes the fans want to know about Number 88 even more, and the speculation has reached conspiracy theory proportions about where he/ she comes from and what they actually are. Robots, aliens and vat-bred super soldiers all feature heavily among the tabloid sports channels. Nobody knows for sure.

Number 88 will play for any team so if you help us produce him, we will include him into Jack and Striker! (and don’t forget you’ll get multiples of the rewards in Cheerleader, Showboater and League Sponsor!)

Thanks again for your support - please keep spreading the word!

      Two sprues is indeed very cool and definitely worth a thanks! Good show Mantic!

      Thanks for including these in guard and up! I thought these should have been in the basic game and now they effectively are, for us kick-starters anyway.

      You guys totally missed a trick; you should have done the other MVPs first and saved 88 for $188,000. :D

      I'm going to order an extra two, to account for everything and have spares :P

    5. Creator Mike de Jong on September 3, 2012

      Hooray! Two sprues are definitely better than one!

      (I'm still going to order an extra one, though, to account for the Ref, all the MVPs, and whatever other extras come our way!)

      Thanks for listening! Hopefully these babies will be the norm for all dreadball teams.
