Poll Results, Goodie Ranking and The Return of Bean

Dear Backers,

Three quick things in this update.

Stretch Goal Prioritization

The results of the stretch goal prioritization poll in the last update are in! Upgrade Packaging and More Dojinishi ended up in a virtual tie for top priority, so we're going to explore both of these options. If you have particular ideas of how you would like the packaging upgraded, please let us know.

Goodie Ranking

We've also created a new poll to let you rank how much you covet the various goodies -- both the ones we've already promised and two new ones that have been suggested. This will help with our planning, so please take a couple of minutes to complete the poll.

Bean Bounces Back

Just in case you haven't heard, Mr. Sonoda has launched a kickstarter to support his new Bean Bandit project. I recommend you check it out!

      large artbook and packaging please. Not too interested in everything else. I'd right have it look good in the shelf than all kinds of separate bits and pieces I'm bound to misplace somewhere.

      Also if I'm not mistaken, isn't Return of Bean Bandit only going to be 5 mins long?

      Super hoping we vote up the Grenade Stress Toy, which is a brilliant idea. Mirroring people's concerns about t-shirts wearing out.

      Also just a general question: why doesn't Sonoda keep Rally consistent between the two series? Is it a licensing concern? The manga establishes a consistent universe of all these characters, and I'd love to believe Misty and the others are somewhere in Chicago with them.

      I really like the idea of the grenade stress toy

      For me, it has to be the artbook, and packaging. I'm not too fussed with things like keyrings, stickers and other similar ephemera. A t-shirt is nice, but they tend to wear-out! :( So, for me, the Artbook is my number one choice!

      And whilst I'd love to back Kenichi Sonoda's return of BEAN BANDIT, to get the artbook in a physical form, is about £335!!!! That's insane, even by Kickstarter funding standards! I'm all for funding stuff by Kickstarter, but to have pledges jump from £74, to over £250, with nothing in between, is crazy! Sadly, I simply can't afford to invest at the level I'd like, and thus, this will be one crowdfunder I won't be backing. I really wish I could, but the prices will need to come down hugely!

      Just noticed I forgot the rubber grenade stress toy. I've added it to the poll. No need to go back and update your answers unless you want to as we are definitely doing that one.

      I'm more of a fan of upgraded packaging. Foil logos on the chipboard box, and maybe foil on the bluray case slip. Maybe the box can be Metallic printed to look shinier? Or what about instead of doing a standard chipboard box, you upgrade to a gatefold box that can have interior and exterior artwork?

      Steelbooks are always cool, not sure how much those costs though. :P
