What happend to the Harry Haddock revival? I seem to remember the original design / company wasn't available anymore?

About a year or more ago, a few people had contacted places about another design, but it all went quiet...

The Trust worked extensively on this and the financial risk was too high and there was something like a 3 month turnaround for the type of numbers we wanted. A new design was drawn up that was a haddock and not a rainbow trout as the first one was. (I do have the drawn up design if people are interested in seeing it).

Sounds great, I would love to see it.

Also how about gathering interest, see how many people would pre-order, then it won't be as much risk

How many would you need to order, are we talking thousands

Erm not sure on the numbers but the idea was floated about using Kickstarter or Indiegogo or a crowdfunder of that ilk.

That was done well over 18 months ago.

Kickstarter would be a good idea, for the mininum donation of what it's worth you get the Harry Haddock, then if you give more you get some sort of bonus.

You could have 1 x signed by all the Town players for some sort of (£) figure as an example.

A lot of remade PC games have been funded this way, some into the millions of dollars.  Obviously the main aim would be to aquire the amount required to purchase the actual inflatables.

The thing is, if we reached Wembley, chances are they would sell a few thousand no problem.
