Risks and challenges

The risks of this project are limited by the prior implementation of a publication commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Action Force. The 30th Anniversary special addressed the same subject matter as this Collectors Guide with a similar format, content and publisher. All these factors will contribute to the successful implementation of this follow-up project.

Additionally, the expanded content of this Guide has already been largely already developed by the same team due to the depth of the material developed for the BFTB website itself. For this larger volume, special quotes from the publisher and for distribution have already been secured, costed and factored into the price per unit.

Market research has also been factored in to accommodate the likely distribution costs to North America, Europe and Australasia.

Most importantly, regular progress updates will be posted on the BFTB forum itself.
