What about a link on the Car Wars web page, something like Uncle Al's Hall of Fame with backers names, backer level, and maybe their backer number? An actual physical product would be a waste of time and money.

+1 on the add-on box.
It wouldn't even have to have art.
Just be the same size as the core box so that they stack easily.

With the size of the components as I saw them at Fnordcon, and the announced size of the Core set box [more than double the thickness of the Ogre Battlefields box, if memory serves...7" high!], the box seems ripe for "It's going to hold everything but duplicates and a truckload of playmats".

Which not accounting for the mats makes sense, because only monsters fold playmats. ;)

Remember that the figures for final release are 50% bigger than the ones at FnordCon.

The Ogre Sixth Edition Box is 3 x 11.8 x 11.8 inches, while the Ogre Battle Box is 11.6 x 3 x 9 inches. The latter has all the minis, so a comparable size for Car Wars might hold the core set plus the expansion mini sets as well. Will depend on the final dimensions of both the box and the minis, and the count of the latter, plus any further extras added to the campaign.

I'd still like a second box whether the initial is large enough or not, as both the dachshund and the cat are going to want to sleep in it. ^_^

Oo, nice, from the latest update on KS:

There's a good chance that we will turn the Double Ace rewards into a larger storage box; we'll sketch out the rough plan tomorrow and Wednesday, and then finalize the details the week of January 20th.

That would be superb, especially given all the physical items that have been added at that tier.

Having the _OGRE_ Designer's Edition, plus *every* add-on: Yes, it might be a good idea to break the DA into a separate box, if for no other reason than I get *really* tired of folks singing "Living With A Hernia" every time I drag out that box; I haven't actually weighed it, but I could swear that sucker weighs at least 70 lbs. right now. And plastic, while light... well, it adds up.

Can the upcoming Vehicle Guide at least emcompass all of the "classic" named vehicles (i.e. Hammer, Joseph Special, Superflash, etc.)?

It's a nice idea, but it does constrain the naming scheme a bit -- for ex.: What about the Mystic Motors "Zodiac Line" from _VG1_? Or My First Duelcar, _Iron Horse_? Someone's ox is going to get gored on this -- it's just a question of whose.

I think they should do some of the classics and some to showcase the things we can do with the new rules.

If they don't do the classics, I'm certain some of us will convert the classics anyway.
