I can advertise them on my eBay auctions if you wish. I'd be more than willing to order like 10 or 20 of them. So if anyone might want them in the future, they'd be around.
Very sexy hero, omg

I'll make a news on DC-France.
Can you add to the pre-order page a link to Paypal with the price with europe shipping ?

Should be easier to just click on a button to pre-order.

Thanks.
OK. Since it seems the cost for shipping is generally the same to all parts of Europe, the preorder page has been updated with a Europe preorder button.

Meta, can you give us an estimate of how many have already been preordered? Full paid off ones only. If you don't mind telling us.

Somehow I'd like to increase the orders from the Netherlands with my order, but my P.O. box in Amsterdam got lost. ;)

You're soon getting a new Paypal payment.

This is cool. I just sent my money to you. I'm assuming you'll just use the addy paypal gives you. Which is fine, but I just want to make sure.

In a few days right? So in a few weeks this could be 120 .. especially if you can send some bulks to local retailers

Yeah. Technically it had only been 2 days when I made the count, as it was late on the 29th I made the announcement, and no one preordered until the 1st of October. If it stays this steady, it'll reach 120 in no time.

If you sent it by Paypal, and the transaction is marked complete, then yes. :wink:

I went against my better judgement and posted this at the Sega boards and as news at Retrogames.

My fears seem to have come true. I was afraid that the preorders might be strong for the first couple of days and then drop to nothing after that.

The total preorders I recieved today so far is 1, so it seems like my fears about the lack of interest in this project might just be founded. :(

Everyone who wants a magazine, please preorder. I really want to see the magazine come out as high quality as possible. If you just wait for the magazine to go retail, it's quite possible you won't recieve as high quality of a product as it could have been.

Guilty. Sorry about that. Even though, it was in a Dreamcast channel.

More misunderstandings have popped up, so I'm just going to post the post I made at Dreamcast-scene about it, instead of writing up a new one:

No. I have 27 preorders in total. There was only 1 preorder today, and it wasn't you.

It will be nice quality no matter what. It's not going to be "fanzine quality" even if I don't get 120 preorders. It's still going to be professionally printed.

What are your future plans? I'm assuming this is currently a one issue deal, but will you be doing more in the future? Maybe I missed a previous thread on this. Someone give me a link if I did.
