Between season 1 and 2, I've got 100 hero figures, counting zombivores. It's pretty crazy.
@Dafe Yep. Oh God Yep.
@rod he doesn't look anything like Sam Winchester and If they were to be brought to this game (cmon why not bring supernatural cast to Zombicide) I will insta buy em!
Could we get that spelling of "Kris" to be a little more normalized to "Chris"? Its just a cringe to look at, and I'm sure other Chris's will agree..
dice tower? DICE TOWER!!!
I have wanted a dice tower so badly. Thank you guys!
Now we need a box to carry all the extra survivor we get from every season
At first sight I just thought it was Sam Winchester, but you guys are talking a about Travolta, I can see some resemblance with both
@Micah, I think you're probably correct! Lol
I'm glad we got the BB characters. I'll most likely get all of the exclusive optional characters just to be a completionist, but I'm not really thrilled by the Val character. I do like the dice tower. People complaining about it would be even louder if it was listed as an optional buy instead with no additional stretch goal mentioned after Val's zombivore. Geeks like nothing more than having something to complain about.
I didn't realize Val's character in heat was actually named Chris. It's been a while. . .OK. I think I'm convinced. I don't like it, but I think I'm convinced. :)
Looks like this one is going to go the way of Claudia. :) We'll always have two sets of believers. :P
Also his zombivor is using and assault rifle indicative of the films climax.
It just seems odd that they would bring in a supporting character from a movie from which we've seen no other character spoofs yet at this late stage. I'm still of the belief that it's Vincent Vega recolorized for legal reasons. It makes the most sense given the previous character releases. Or maybe they're setting us up for a Heat crew next year. . . ?
The photoshop looks like Val with dyed hair. I just can't see Travolta in it.
I'm almost certain it's Kilmer from Heat (pic). While it's not his iconic outfit for the film, it's still the same collar. Vincent vega would have a bolo or skinny tie anyway.
The photoshop off Kris with dark hair is an awful lot like Travolta as well.
I'm astounded at the whining about the dice tower, the community had been doing so well but it might turn in the last day. We saw other things like Raj for this campaign....don't get your panties in a bunch, this isn't the definitive end. Take a breath and pledge for what you want to buy. We've already gathered a huge extra value if you pledged a base set.
Or should I say more than 2:1
There seems to be a distinct lack of female survivors this time round, I'd say it's about 2:1 male to female.
Now I really wish I had the Jules figure!! Love the dice tower too as I don't have one yet. Here's to hoping Raj comes soon as an optional or a Bill Murray.
Hmmm I was thinking our next stretch might be Arnie, but if they're doing the crew from Heat we might end up with Deniro or Voight, maybe even meth head Sizemore to go with Walter White!
Travolta from Pulp Fiction. NICE! (yes a little photoshop colorization gives it away.)
Yap, that Val Kilmer.
I'm definitely with the folks who say Travolta as Vincent Vega, which means all four of the lead actors from Pulp Fiction have figures (not all from the movie, of course). Too bad Tarantino or Miramax are so crappy about letting the colours/outfits stand.
@Eli Butcher If this were Owen Wilson, he would not have a perfect nose.
I like the dice tower. And "chris" is Emilio Estevez in Repo Man.
Kris looks more like Owen Wilson to me. Which would make sense since we got Ben Stiller in Zoolander.
Yay stuff! Also I don't know where all the confusion is coming from. It's Vincent vega. The initial season 1 kickstarter for their design of Jules had to be changed due to tarintinos lawers so I can't be too identical or they would have the same issue
I was immediately on the fence about this character. First impression was Val Kilmer from Heat, but the face looked like Travolta. So I dropped him into photoshop. Does this help or hurt the debate? :)
Not really my thing, don't mind though. If $2.5M is the last stretch goal I won't feel bad saving cash for the pledge manager.
@Craig I think the same. But I'm pretty sure with a bit of DIY, we can stick them on a piece of cardboard and glue it on the tower (in a removable way).
I'm a little disappointed that the box covers for the Dice Tower are stickers. It basically means that you choose one and it's there for good (obviously you can choose another, but that means you'll probably lose the previous one you had on there). When I first saw the picture, I thought that they would be thin cardboard inserts that could be swapped out.
@Richard: in a previous season they said it was because they felt having the stretch goal for a paid add on between free ones was preferable to having an extended gap.
So if the goals were 50K apart then without the add on for a paid extra one they would be spaced at 100K.
It just costs too much to have a totally free extra every goal with the current spacing.
Val Kilmer was my first impression upon seeing the picture.
And @Richard, if you're not spending more on the optional buys, then you're not one of the people who are helping to achieve the stretch goals. I'm also not spending more than the base (I have on previous ones, but lack of a full time job at the moment prevents me from spending more), and as such I don't have an issue with these "missing" Stretch Goals.
I can see the resemblance to Val Kilmer in the movie Heat, much closer than Nolte.
He looks like Nick Nolte from 48 Hours, a movie from 1982.
For those of us that won't be getting some of the stretch goals because we opted not to spend more on the optional buys, why not replace those with some extra dice or something? Those stretch goals don't benefit us in any way without the buy-in for the extra figures like Nikki Human, etc. Just a thought as there are quite a few of these now.
While I'm thrilled about the Kris survivor and zombivore, I'm less enthused about the dice tower, particularly because I have towers from other KS campaigns. For such a large gap, I would have much preferred a different SG meh.
One thing I can't help but wonder... where have all the female survivors gone?
Wait, where's the Raj they specifically promo'd in Ravage, I'm confused
He looks a little to me like Clay Matthews from the Green Bay Packers
I like the dice tower, would have preferred a dice cup, but I will see if I like to use a dice tower.
Yey for all the awesome, FREE swag. Very cool! Can't wait for this to all arrive! Albeit in the distant future
What about skinner and seeker box of zombies?
@Andy C - I'm sure there was a minimum production run quantity they had to order. Given the lower expected demand for dice towers, it would take a lot longer to actually sell them all than by "gifting" over 10,000 of them in a Stretch Goal to make a serious dent in their minimum order.
Would the dice tower be better as an add-on?
Pretty disappointing. The coolest thing is the stickers for the dice tower that I would use for the figure cases. I had a couple of hundred lined up in case we all had to push a little extra. Not for this guy though - whom ever he is ;)
Hope there is a surprise for the last 24 hours.....
Why does everyone assume this is the last stretch goal?
The last day of both previous Zombicide kickstarters were the second highest grossing days of their campaigns.
Tomorrow is going to be massive, lots of stretch goals will be presented and broken.
Learn from the past people :)
oh man, what a BS SG...
I like the sentence:
but you folks have been so amazing throughout all these weeks that we decided to just throw it in as a gift
@André , not everyone seems to think so.
We are definitely still missing add-ons so they might put them up later today or on the 24hour mark.
Meh, I really hoped the dice tower would have been an optional buy.
Those things are utterly useless. I like rolling my dice, not just dropping them in a container :(
Oh well, congratulations to the vocal minority, I gues...
why not offering the dice tower as an addon?
Also some zombie boxes are still not available!
