Round 1 2015 Fan Finance Poll
« on: 24 January 2015, 20:26:20 »
This is the 1st Quarter 2015 Fan Finance Poll based on the suggestion thread, top six will be eligible to be Fan Financed. Due to how long the list was, I limited the poll to 35 options and thanks to Draco for compiling the list from the suggestion thread.

Since we have a large poll and thanks to the suggestion below, you can vote on up three different items.

A little disappointed the Hel isn't on that list.  I know I saw it nominated at least a few times.

The Hel was one of the more popular suggestions, so yeah, safe bet there's already plans to release it. Which isn't really a surprise given it's potential to be a main line of battle unit for two clans.

Kinda wish the Chaffee was on there, because Doug Chaffee, and because cool, but the Patron probably makes more sense from the standpoint of tabletop.

I'm going to assume that whatever I don't see on the list from the nomination thread is being considered for regular production. This looks to be a great poll; it's so hard to pick just one.

Not necessarily, there where over 90 suggestions. Some where excluded since they might be coming down the road. Other where excluded so that the poll was not even more massive then it is. But what is included are suggestions that several people had on there lists.

It may be too late, but might I suggest to allow us to vote for up to three options?  This would give a better indication of what people really want, and are most likely to buy.

Good idea, made the change. Should have thought of that since the poll was 35 options.

I already cast my single vote (for the Dragoon. Recognize). Any way for me to get the other two in?

This is not the thread for suggestions. That was locked a couple days ago. You will have to make that suggestion in March when the next round starts.

I'm hoping that the reason the Cyllaros and Harpagos are not in the poll, either. 

Given how much enthusiasm it seemed to generate during initial discussions, I'm surprised the Black Knight “Red Reaper” isn't polling higher.   ???

My logic, both in voting and in the earlier idea thread, was to not choose something that IWM is likely to produce on their own.  This project should be for the more obscure, rare things, not the extremely popular stuff.  Wouldn't you rather see stuff like that Red Reaper in standard distribution?  All the people yelling out for 3145 'Mechs dumbfounded me.  Those are the things IWM is absolutely most likely to do!

Yeah, I wouldn't have thought there'd be so much demand for a generic vehicle. Especially with the Goblin on the list.

Completely agree. The Dragoon got my vote simply because I'm not sure it'd enter production otherwise.

While I see a lot of use for the APC in combined arms forces, there are already generic minis available for the hover, wheeled and tracked APC from IWM (albeit all archived).  Its also a generic enough unit that stand ins from other 6mm scifi lines are easy enough to find.

My logic, both in voting and in the earlier idea thread, was to not choose something that IWM is likely to produce on their own.  This project should be for the more obscure, rare things, not the extremely popular stuff.  Wouldn't you rather see stuff like that Red Reaper in standard distribution?  All the people yelling out for 3145 'Mechs dumbfounded me.  Those are the things IWM is absolutely most likely to do! 
This makes sense to me too, I tended to focus on things not in the mainline TROs (ex. 3067, 3085, 3145)and stuck with the less likely stuff from XTROs like Prototypes, Most Wanted, etc.  Popular as the "Red Reaper" is, being its a one-off varient of a mech already in standard distrivution, I was not sure it was ever going to see standard distribution itself.  Limited edition or online exclusive seemed more likely.

Yep, my thought exactly. We have multiple Black Knight variants already in general distribution. I don't think the Red Reaper would see any kind of release without Fan Financing. Not because it's not a great looking 'Mech, but because it simply makes no sense to add yet another Black Knight to the stores.

So only units that aren't in traditional paper Technical Readouts? I have no objection with such a rule when it concerns Mechs or Vehicles, but Aerotech units are also going to need Fan Financing (I believe).

You can vote for whatever you want. But my assumption is, that 'Mechs that already have multiple minis will probably not see a general release if yet another variant comes around, while new units probably will.
That's why I voted for the Red Reaper, but wouldn't vote for the Templar III, because I assume that one will see general release.
As far as Aerospace and other "non standard" stuff is concerned: Yes, they have had their release via fan funding in the past and usually don't see general release. BAs have solely been made through fan funding for a long time now. Since the old FF died we haven't had a new BA sculpt. I hope we will get them in the second run at the new fan financing. I want BAs. Lots of them. ;)
