Camp Weedonwantcha: Volume 1 Kickstarter! - Pinny Involved

edited February 2015 in Pinny Arcade
Hello and good morning!
I just woke up to find that Katie has put up a new kickstarter!
This is for her first volume of her comic "Camp Weedonwantcha". If you want to back it for $75 you also get an official pinny of Brian (shown below)

Idk about you guys but I love her comic, and I am excited to back her project!
Have a great day!

    Love Katie's work as well. Finding the Kitty in every strip takes me back to Primary School and an artist named Jeff Hook who used to hide fishing hooks in all his comics strips. I backed the $125 tier to grab the CWKS2015 Tshirt as well, wish I had enough spare change for the Cameo in a strip one though. :?

    Oh sweet! I'll be backing this (mostly to support Katie, but a pin certainly doesn't hurt).

    If it's anything like Table Titans it will be a while before any of that stuff ships.

    Did 75 dollars as well because I don't want to miss out on another pin that I will never own.

    Edit: actually changed it to $100. Comic is very good and I just can't pass up a signed hardcover copy.

    There's a fair chance the leftover pins will just go on the PA shop or PAXs at some point in the future. Table Titans had plenty leftover for sale at PAX from their KS, I actually got my bard way quicker from PAX, still waiting on the one from KS :P

    The pin will be the least problematic thing for Katie to get made, so I'm sure she'll put the order through in 29days or so and she'll know how many to put aside for KS. You can also just tally up the total backers in the last few hours who get pins and subtract from 1000 or so.

    Take this statement as you will, but she tweeted this earlier:
    Another definite is that the pin will never be sold on its own. We'll probably do an FAQ regarding the pin soon. Thanks!

    Now, based on that statement, I would wonder if she means to imply that any future sale of the pin would be tied to another purchase (say, buy the book and the pin together). But hey, the FAQ will hopefully clear that up.

    Yeah I don't really agree with every change he has made. I only read the strip once, and thought it was at ton of fun but if I was the guy who originally colored it I would be upset. It will be interesting to see what stretch goals she does. It should be a pretty book.

    Well then... this is a dark future we're entering you guys. Already backed it anyway at the $75 level, but there's a possibility for me to jump up to that $100 one.

    Eeeep.

    This will be interesting, there is likely going to be left over pins. What will be their fate if not sold? Competitions, destroyed, left to rot in a warehouse till the end of times?

    Hey everybody! This is Adam, I'm running the Weedonwantcha Kickstarter with Katie.

    I've added a FAQ on the Kickstarter page regarding the pin. We definitely want to come up with a solution that honors our backers AND the Pinny Arcade community. We would love to avoid creating a dark future!

    Don't forget the various Childs Play outlets such as Desert Bus would love to have a couple of sought after Pins to give away / auction off.

    Thanks Adam. Love your work on the comic and I chipped in for the $100 pledge. I'm thinking of moving in the next month, so how do i inform you of that before the rewards come out? And is it just Katie, or are you both signing the books?

    Much appreciated.

  • AdamRWAdamRW Registered User regular
    Thanks so much for your pledge!

    Don't worry about moving. When we get close to shipping the rewards, we'll send out a Kickstarter survey where everyone can provide their preferred shipping address.

    I would guess most people just want Katie's signature, but I still might sign the book too... I'll just make sure to sign it real small so nobody will notice.

    Is there a chance of putting in an add on section and being able to get an extra
    Pin? For example pledge at the $75 level and add on an additional $15 to get an extra pin. I would like both my son and I to have pins.

    My favorite thing about this is we're one, maybe two PAXen away from me being able to make a whole Camp Weedonwantcha frame. Because this makes 4 CW pins, I think: the stacked campers, the box of cats, Purdy, and now gloomy Brian.

    Pins! Pins everywhere!

    I am on the fence about this.
    90AUD is a lot for a pin, and while I know the pin is not the point of the kickstarter. That is why i'm interested in it.
    I don't have a DLC, so its not like i'm trying to keep my set complete.
    arrrrrrghhh I don't know......

    This is where being Hardcore starts to thin the herd. It helps to be a fan of pretty much everything coming out of PA, and Camp Weedonwantcha is fantastic. Katie is just super nice too, so I like getting to back this.

    I know it is a lot for a pin. I will have a hard time parting with 75 bucks, but you get two prints (one by Gabe) the book and stuff so for me it's a good amount for your money. If you are not interested in that stuff in the least then it would be a lot just for the pin. At least it goes to a good cause.

  • dmosineedmosinee Davenport, IARegistered User regular
    I like the idea mentioned above of an option to add a second pin for an additional $10 or $15 with these types of drives, as it would get some of them actually circulating through trades.

    It's nice to think that the hardcore X fan could get a second of a rare X pin, which they could trade with the hardcore Y fan for a rare Y-related pin.

  • SennoSenno AustraliaRegistered User regular
    I would definitely add more to the pledge for a second pin.

    But I think you might be able to trade for them at future PAX, or purchase the book and get the pin at a future pax, as she wont be selling it on its own.

    Apart from that, there will likely be competitions, maybe some fukubukoro bags, and some staff may have some for trade. There will be options. This is just the only one known so far, and it's a definite. You might be able to sell on the book and get some of the cash back, if you're worried about finances.

    /poke @AdamRW :) Please do consider this. Lots of Kickstarters offer "add-ons" at certain pledge levels. This being the only way to obtain this pin puts it in the "Collectible" category, and I would like to get more to trade with. It's an awesome design!

    I already up'd mine to an even $100 from the $85 I had originally backed so if I could add a note saying that id like that to go for another pin. That would be awesome!

  • SolelronSolelron Wandering Gamer Cornelius, ORRegistered User regular
    tbf, I'd allow it as an add on but only if you purchased the 75 level. that stops people from buying a lower level and just doing a bunch of pins (happens in a lot of KS's)

    I think it's fair to assume only 1000 of these guys are being made, so if something like this happens it probably wouldn't be until later, because if 600 people are getting the pin and they let everyone get an extra... there's chances for going overboard and screwing up.

    Personally I don't see it being an add on, but I'd sure love an extra!

    Hey, guys!

    Sorry that I've been quiet on the subject for a little bit. Things have been busy with the Kickstarter, but know that we are actively considering our options when it comes to doing the pin as an add-on.

    We've talked to the people in charge of doing our fulfillment to make sure that doing the add-ons wouldn't make life too difficult. Our #1 priority is making sure everything goes smoothly with the Kickstarter, and that includes making the fulfillment process as quick and painless as possible.

    I will say that if we were to do a pin as an add-on, it would definitely be limited to people who had already pledged at a pin level (which starts at $75). We would also limit it to ONE additional pin per order.

    All that said, nothing has been officially decided, and nothing probably will be until next week at the earliest. I promise that I'll update everybody in this thread when we move forward one way or the other... I'm sorry if I'm being annoyingly difficult or wishy-washy. This is the first Kickstarter we've done, and we're trying to be careful with our decisions!

    Thanks for all of your feedback (and pledges!) and I'll talk to you all soon!
