What you see is what you get. The $100 deal adds 37 more pieces, plus all of the stretch goals. I have a feeling that its going to turn into a massive deal.

As I mentioned in previous posts in this thread, I'd like to use it to feel out the market for big kits that would cause me to lose a pantload if I invested in them and no one bought them.
But those items to not seem to be the type that fuel the excitement of a kickstarter. You get people to invest a relatively modest amount, then keep enticing them to order more and more with gradual add-ons. That's not really the case with a kickstarter to invest in a $100 monster tank. Maybe the add-ons could be things like additional drives (my Siler tank can be upgraded as a low-rider grav tank) or weapons swaps (maybe a railgun instead of the plasma gun) but the big initial investment would I think put a lot of people off.
On the other hand I have a new 15mm multi-species alien army coming up that will have a full range of support weapons and vehicles, and I don't really feel the need to sell them at a discount and give over a % to Kickstarter -- I think they will sell extremely well, so why bother? I guess the feeding frenzy effect of Kickstarter would sell more of them, but I can't really quantify if the additional sales would compensate for the discount you need to sell them at, and the fee to kickstarter (and perhaps other fees -- amazon too, I think?).
Still back and forth on whether to kickstart my big tank in 28mm though.

They can provide figures and goodies to the end user at what looks like a large discount but which actually works out more than they would receive by selling the same items into the retail chain.
As you aren't priced to use retailers it is going to be a problem for you.

However they are always 28s, and the markup on 28s is vastly higher than on 15s.
