Re: Hasbro crowd funding - could Heroscape be reprinted?

To be fair,
1) Hasbro allows this website to create group custom cards/figures. From the beginning they actually encouraged customs. They ARE allowing us to expand the game as much as we want.

2) They haven't said anything about the 3d models for terrain and figures that have been posted. Files are available for almost every item they have produced for Heroscape, so you can make your own sets and figures at home ad-infinitum. The resolution is getting such that at tabletop distance you can barely tell the difference.

The three things Hasbro could give us are:
1) Injection molded parts (which would be cheaper than 3D prints)
2) Painted figures (but figure painting costs have probably skyrocketed as China's economy has improved, so the prices would jump)
3) Bigger fan base to expand the hobby (although with Toys R Us out of business they would have to promote it through Walmart)

A kickstarter might get #1, but probably not #2 or #3.
