The Results AND… a Raven Collectible Figurine? Yes, That Can Actually Happen

12 Aug

So the results of the merchandise polls were as follows:

As far as what type of merchandise, T-Shirts and Posters were the clear winners, blowing away everything else. So T-shirt and posters it is.

As far as the winning images, the far and away preferred image was “The Voodoopunk Grave Thing Which I Haven’t Even Seen Yet”.  Yes, the picture of Jasper with “Vote Voodoopunk We Dance With You On Your Grave” despite not even featured, won by a landslide.

2nd place was:

New Albion Steampunk Era

the 3rd place winner was

New Albion Dieselpunk Era

I would offer an atompunk version too, and out of the two this was preferred:

New Albion Atompunk Era

As for other results:

Almost everyone who wrote in, asked for a poster of the Carnival cover. That came up again and again and again.  It was far and away the single most requested item. So i will likely offer a poster of the carnival cover if not a t shirt too. In fact, i MAY start with the steampunk New Albion image and carnival cover.

Here’s also something: i released the Carnival like a month ago. 5 weeks. The response has been insane. The most popular character in new albion has for years been Annabel, followed probably by Jackie and then it branches out. In only 5 weeks, Raven has overtaken just about everyone. If you just count fan porn alone (out there in the dark under reaches of the net there is indeed more new albion fan porn than you ever want to know about) raven is leading by a landslide. Hell, there is a New Albion Cards Against Humanity game, and in it the card Raven’s di** pretty much wins every round it’s ever played. Not that i myself know anything about such things. I… you know, heard this from a friend. (cough)

So, there’s a guy, Lee Joyner, who is able (he’s amazing, frankly) and who has offered to make a figurine of Raven should i ever desire such a thing. I do not imagine such a thing would be cheap, but i’m getting pricing on it shortly. I think this sort of thing is a longshot and i think i should stick with t shirts and posters, BUT, it IS possible and if enough people were interested i could run a kickstarter to make a specific number of limited edition raven figures. If you ARE interested you need to tell me because otherwise i will drop this as being way the hell too insane. If enough people express interest i will post some pricing estimates and we can start talking about a kickstarter campaign.

In the meantime, thank you all for your polls and opinions. I did learn what i need to know. The Mighty Sarah De Buck is working on the Jasper/Voodoopunk thing as we speak and i now know enough to move forward with some basic merchandising. You are all wonderful.

    I know its probably not something on the table right now, but personally I’d love a book/ebook of all the little New Albion stories on here. 🙂 Looking forward to any merch there is though

      I agree with Kat. An ebook would be nice.

        I agree with Kat and Peter!!! Maybe even a collection of your lost hollow stories as well?

    There is a New Albion Cards Against Humanity?! Oh ho. Where can it be found? (Not that I myself want to know anything about such things. I…you know, ask from a friend. *cough*)

    Mr. Shapera, I would give my right leg for a Raven figurine. (But if it doesn’t work out, T-shirts are wonderful, too.)

    It would ultimately depend on the pricing, but I’d certainly be interested in a figurine of Raven (depending also on what it looks like, of course). He is my second favorite character from your music (after the nameless angel from The Fallen). So, I’d say it’s probably worth pursuing the possibility at least to the point of getting a price and general idea of appearance figured out (maybe just through sketches and such) and then gauging interest from that.

    If there’s a KS for Raven figures you bet your a** I’ll back it in a heartbeat.

    I would pay probably literally anything for a Raven figurine, if I’m going to be totally honest. I’m assuming it would be, like, proper-nerd-vinyl-figure costs, and I would be completely game – if it’s at all possible ! <33 This is gonna be radical; I can't wait to be able to advertise these literally on my body. Good lord.

    Paul is your friend named…Paulo Shampou? Because…I think I know him. He is a wild guy. You shouldn’t trust him, Paul.

    Jokes aside, I’m definitely interested in a Raven figurine, but sadly I don’t know if I would be able to actually buy it. But for the posters and the rest? Damn, yeah!!!!

    Yes yes yes! Thank you for continuing to listen to us… I promise to “buy all the things” and would be totally up for backing any Kickstarter with your name on it

    i’m super excited for the chance at getting tshirts, honestly. my friends have listened to me shout theories about your works for a Long Time and having a new albion shirt could maybe even get others to listen to it and shout theories with me 👀

    WAIT. There’s a CAH??? How big is this fan base?? When I joined it was just a bot blog and a paper clip! Blimey Charlie!! I can’t believe there are people. Well, okay Discord. But I don’t mix well with online groups. WOO! FINALLY I can post my art and cosplays and covers and people will actually see them!! Haha! Hahahaha!!
