We could try a reusable plastic container (just pay shipping) and only send it out to "proven" community members--as in people with >500 posts or something. Up to the admins really.

I just have a hard time believing that 34 people are going to pay $10 so that we break even before something happens to it, like people losing interest, or someone breaking/losing it.

Inevitable dog chewage ensues. I'm for it don't get me wrong. I didn't even think of breakages between transit.

With the description--it's nothing some Gorilla Glue can't fix. Anyways--maybe have real-life handoffs? I was thinking if we end up with a number of HLP meets, we can generate enough interest with the older and more responsible members of the community that nothing will happen to it. Or what about 2-3 smaller-scale models? Ordering 2-3 models half the size should be cheaper.

Although I am simply unable to do this due to lack of funds, perhaps we should hand this off to someone who is capable of painting Carl properly, so he doesn't look too silly.

A grey Shivan just doesn't have the fear-factor a colored one possesses.

It's an investment, see.  We talked it over among the admins before we decided to purchase it.  We'll be using it for the HLP Carl exchange -- as mentioned -- as well as for other promotional stuff.  Think of it as the HLP Mascot.  If we ask for a donation whenever somebody wants to use it, then once it's circulated among enough people, it'll be repaid.  And afterward, surplus Carl donations will go to the site fund.

Keep in mind that we have a rather sizable balance remaining in the site fund, even after the model purchase.  Several people mentioned that they'd like to see the money used for something beyond just the routine server bills.  Well, this is one of those things.  None of the money is going into the admins' pockets; it's all going to HLP one way or another.

Meh, I want zod for teh maskot!

Are you willing to spend $278.37 on it?  That's kind of the reason we got it for the board as a whole; we figured people would much rather send it around than buy their own copy.

ho ho ho....

I kind of thought that the USD10 was too cheap...

I am ok up to USD100, but USD278... hmm... well I guess I will need to pass... but I am ok with the kind of forwarding thing... :)

There will only be one (for now) and it will go around and visit various forumites, then be sent on to the next one. It's unpainted by default but if someone has experience in painting figurines (anyone play Warhammer?) it'd be nice.

Must admit, I can't help wondering if those models accept acrylic paints...

Of course, I haven't got room to play Warhammer any more, but the options for expanding the armies would be great (if not cheap). ;)

Sorry if I missed something but I'm just wondering, since you ask that those interested in borrowing HLP Carl donate >$10, how do we inform you that our donation is intended for that purpose, as opposed to those who aren't participating and are instead donating for the server fund?  Or does it not matter?
I just donated $15 for Carl. :)

Yes, please indicate somewhere that your donation is for the HLP Carl Exchange so that we can keep track of things.  There is a "Comments" expandable field in the PayPal donation box; that would be the ideal place to put it. :)

Lol, crazy. If someone ever told me one of my models would be rapid-prototyped, I would have laughted :p
I'd paint it (I happen to play warhammer and i'm not too bad in the painting department), but I don't have any cash to spare to buy one, sadly.
