Really digging the Blood Spirit ... although went Mongoose for faction pack.

Will the shirts be available when wave 2 PM reopens? If so, I know what I'm getting my brother for birthday/christmas/just-because.  Speaking of, when will the PM reopen after this one closes?

The shirts are looking amazing. I may have to pop open my Pledge Manager and add that Blood Spirit shirt now! Looking forward to seeing the Star Adder and Goliath Scorpion shirts.

Just guessing here. I think it would be after the first wave has shipped (or is about ready to)

buyback is $150 - either credit to the KS or the CGL webstore.

For Galaxy Commanders. $75 for Star Colonels.

Only fair, each player gets to pick their half.

Player2: I choose...Ishiyama.

<sigh> too much, I kind of wish CG wouldn't have offered the option. Now I have to reevaluate this instead of getting chars as drive by collateral damage. ;)
for 20-40$ or so I probably wouldn't have bothered with the manual overhead, but 75$ is a lot as explicit and avoidable costs for a char. perhaps a split <puts on his thinking cap>

To me the Horses' 3rd die graphic did not really change which was supposed to get the eye fixed.  Wish the Scorpion had kept a bit more detail, I understand it needed to be simplified- like the disc got lost- but the body really needed to have SOME segementation.  Its hard to tell the legs are such rather than segments of the exoskeleton.  But I like the color . . . might have to get some Coyote dice too.

$75 for Star Colonels.

Wow, I expected $10-$20.  I guess I could see how each character could take an hour or two of an employee’s time.  That also means that either the costs or the margins of the other stuff in the Star Colonel rewards are lower than I expected.

Do we have to fully fill in the survey before we can select the credit?

No. It comes after you entered your name and email.

interesting question that came up on ks.
For someone with multiple chars, are they handled in the same survey or do you get one survey per char?
perhaps someone has already seen how that is done.

Anyone have an idea if some items will be re-available? ... at that point, my finances will be 'more back in order-ish'.  Nabbing a few extra shirts or dice might be a real option for me.

No. Basically how it works (or it did for me, I took the credit), is that you enter in your name and your email address. Then you have a page of checkbox acknowledgements (basically making sure you understand and accept the legal ramifications of the custom character, that they reserve the right to reject frivolous or offensive names, that you sign away rights to the character, the usual stuff), and then there's a question asking if you want to continue, get a CGL Store credit or a Pledge Manager credit.

How long will it take for the credit to show up on the pledge manager? (just filled in the survey)

Do you get a notification that the credit is available or do you have to reopen the PM to find out?

$75 is kinda in no mans land. Too much to turn down, not enough to get all the stuff I want.  :D

When wave 2 opens up will wave 1 things still be available? Thinking I want dice.

See I find $75 to not even be tempting

Apparently they'll have CGL customer service contact you to finalize it. That's the message I got at the end of the survey.

I can understand it.  For some, the character wasn't important.  They just wanted the most stuff for their pledge dollars.

I am very curious as to how many people will take the cash, but who knows if that info will ever be shared.

I think it mentioned over 3k characters in the survey. Even lightening the load by 500 would be a big win

As much as I would have liked the chat I can get another IS retaliation pack and 2 more lance packs or 1 lance and a star of elementals from it. Wouldn't mind getting another Longbow or Crusader.

I haven't closed out my PM yet. Was debating a few wave 2 choices so maybe if I am lucky I can tack on the extra stuff this time around.

I've been wondering this as well. I've thrown in for two Star Colonel pledges and haven't been sure how exactly the multi character option will work.

The link being sent out allows one submission. Backers with multiple characters to submit will be identified and contacted differently.

do clanners call their own fouls?

Either way, the Trials of Refusal after each one take forever

I can understand it.  For some, the character wasn't important.  They just wanted the most stuff for their pledge dollars.

Yeah, I don't have a beloved character that I want to see in print (or kids to embarrass ;) ) so $75 means a free AGoAC/BMM plus the elemental star I forgot to budget for
