science fiction photos section & question 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
Hello Jeff/Stefan

I just checked the photo section about science fiction sets.
My point of view : most of the photos are mixed with classic dunjeon and we don't see really well science fiction sets & contains.
More, some photos have nothing to do with it like the medieval ones.
(100% fantasy in science fiction ?!)

When I comeback to "products" it's clear that your products aren't in evidence, I mean there is just a picture of the box (not for the last) and few detailed images of the contains.
Hard to see for instance that there are 2 computers into the first sets which can be combined to the last limited expansion. By the way the last accessories expansion (sf 005) presents all pieces but not at all some photos... I think about (if my memories are good) of the promo photos we got when you have released it which were better...

Now here is my question about science fiction sets :

I checked all sets... the room set contains few pieces same for the passage/cross/angle corridors one.
Why you never thought about releasing a big box like the "DOE room & passage set" for instance with 2 T cross, one X cross, 2 angles, 2 short passages on the first part & the room pieces for the second part all this into a same box ?

Yes I'm starting to be interested in it for some space crusade/hulk/doom adventures but excepted the last expansion set, I still won't make the step.
I'm affraid that ordering one of each 5 sets can't enter a same box for the postage/package...

A teleporter & generator/engine room are missing.
Space boxes & accessories are needed too (pipelines, a sas, iron doors, destroyed walls etc)

I think part of the issue with the sci-fi line and boxes is when they came out.
Not sure if you were around when they had switched over to the smaller (even for Fantasy) sets, and there was an almost completly analogous pair of Classic Dungeon/Fantasy sets as well as the special floor set, those Fantasy sets are gone.

When they switched the business model to selling themselves and not through stores, distrubuters they went back to the old style boxes/amount for the classic line as they could cut the prices and sell directly to the consumer. However for Sci-Fi there was no old style and i don't think it is good enough a seller for them to go through and change the packagaing etc to make it match up with the other stlye.
Also yeah just ordering 1set wont do it, but if you go by price it is cheaper for the Sci-fi. If you ordered the same amount of product in cost you could get very close and get a much more specific to your needs order, ie scew it more toward passage or rooms depending on your likes.

the Dungeon line
Rooms = $99
Rooms & Pasags = 119
so for 1 each 218

Sci-Fi
Room = 49
Passage = 49
To get the same cost it's almost 4 and half sets of Sci Fi.

Which will give you about the same number of parts as 1 each of the classic dungon sets. The biggest thing short changed is the basic 2 inch wall section. Something i ran across recently. There really needs to be a set of the basic Sci-Fi walls, floors in the individual section like there is for the Duneon floors (ok thought there were walls as well but don't see any...)
I' love to see the long walls as an indiviual item come back as they are Sooooo usefull. I can't justify the purchase of the Beta just to get them.

As to the pictures i think some of the "out of place" are to show that you can use them for what ever you want the classic sets work for sci fi ect.

I had posted this big post the other day but it gotten eaten when i forgot the code (not used to it).

I would say if you are interested in the Sci-Fi line also Check out Tony C of Griffon Studios on E-bay. He has done some nice add on bits that do some of the fill in bits for like the Advanced builder sets but for Sci-Fi.

I had more to say but can't remember any more what it was.

I just bought a science fi alpha set expansion set for my birthday : 99$ usd + 42$ of postage & package it costs around 110 €uros just for one set.
I still don't know how much I will pay for the douane tax ... all the money I receive is gone in smoke... hope to get it soon and be satifised with it.
