a. No. Or yes. Maybe. Always in motion, the future is. Better to ask if DF will continue looking for a European distributor -- to which I believe the answer is yes.
b. What was the amount of time between releasing the original ABS and ABS2?
c. Waiting for Stefan to finish it according to his own exacting standards.
d. If he wants to share his thoughts.
e. What was the amount of time between releasing the original DoE and DoE2? (Possibly because Caverns is already a huge line, and HellScape is thematically linked to DoE like caverns are thematically linked to the fantasy line.)

1. 2"x3"? Do you mean 2"x4", or maybe 4"x6"?
2. I think 1500 is probably about as small as production runs get.
3. The RotA intersection is a signature piece that deserves to be exclusive to RotA; DoE already has a few signature pieces: the 6" walls with the amazing perspective, the two-demon arch, and the raised platform with lid.

a 4x6

Regarding the Rota intersecton, It's your opinion that it should remain excusive to Rota. It's my opinion it is a good design and would work well replacing any
new intersection for any up comming sets. Obviously it would look different than the ROTA one. You wouldnt say that ROTA shouldn't have their 6 inch wall because
DOE had one. I do like the standard intersections but the ROTA 4 way is just so versatile it's a shame not to make more of them.

Well I'll toss in my request, would love a Sci-Fi passage end cap, I would have loved it in a Advanced builder type set, but got to admit Tony hase been doing a very good job of plugging a lot of those gaps. Still use the funky wall floor combos, and thinner door style.

I wouldn't say that RotA shouldn't have the 6" wall because DoE has one, but I might say that RotA shouldn't have a 6" wall with the amazing perspective that the DoE 6" wall has. IMO, part of what makes the coolest pieces so cool is that they are unique to particular lines. I think it would be boring if every line was a clone of the others, with only the textures changed.

I must admit, however, that the details of the DoE walls make it very well suited to the four-way intersection -- much more so than the fantasy line.

These are all very good questions. Unfortunately, I don't have any good answers. With the state of the economy and the nature of Stefan's unique genius and exacting standards, we can only keep the faith and patiently wait. We have several projects in the works, but nothing is near a certainty. I am sorry I can't be more specific, but I have learned that posting anything as a "maybe" is sometimes remembered as a "certainty".

I realize that this is very frustrating for collectors who want to plan purchases. I apologize for the inconvenience and frustation, and I can only offer our continued pledge that Stefan's art comes before profit (or a schedule). I will post any info as soon as I have anything concrete. We hope to have 3-4 sets available this year, but again that is only a hope. The European shipping center is still a maybe,

Thanks for your patience and great support.

3-4 sets this year? At once a dream and a nightmare! I love DF but I don't have enough money to pick up every item I want.

Without giving too much away, can you let us know how many of these sets will be limited edition as opposed to your regular line (tentative as your plans may be)? I can always wait awhile to pick up something like the much-discussed AB3 but would obviously want to snatch up an expansion to limited sets like Hellscape as quickly as I could.

I've got an expensive year coming up (my wedding, my sister's wedding, and at least one other) and I need to plan! I've got to figure out how much to save, under what potted plant to hide the money and where to ship the sets so my fiance` doesn't see them! ;)

Make something idiot-proof and someone will just turn around and make a better idiot.

My problem isn't the money but I will have to wait for the last set release of the year to order the 3/4 sets planed to save money on the postage & package & douane.
So if it's a limited edition I'll probably missed it.

DoE was the first limited edition. How long did it take to sell out?

I think you'll be fine.

I bought the second arrival one year or 2 later don't remember but it was all sold out.
(And I got one more set hehe ^^)
I hope you're right jack.
