Jilliop seems like Kickstarter directs you amazon and amazon holds on to your card info and charges it $1 to make sure its real or something then charges the rest of the amount after kickstarter reports that the minimum amount Draconis set has been reached.

At least thats what I just went through.

In for the $25 package. Thank you Draconis, I really hope this succeeds.



That is the process pretty much exactly. I hope it succeeds too!

So I'm still slightly confused and please enlighten me if this information has been presented already.

Why do you need nearly $600 to make nerf ammo?


Are you trying to 'arm' the NIC with oversized ammo or are you trying to turn a profit? I'm having a hard time seeing how each one of these would cost approximately the $4.00 in materials that you're selling them for.

The sleeves and noses for this design require bulk orders. Seriously, I will end up storing a crap load of tubing forever.

This cost also reflects the fees instituted by Amazon and Kickstarter, to the tune of about 10%. And my time, which even without the work I will be required to put in if this funds, is already worth very little. Lastly, this cost reflects the shipping costs for each batch of rockets to each participant. Mostly. I may still end up in the hole.

How much do you plan on selling the darts for after the kickstarter is finished?

More, undoubtedly. Keep in mind that the rewards are including shipping within the US. One thing I would like to point out is that if this Kickstarter campaign doesn't get funded, then there will not be sales of the rockets later. The startup costs are too great for me to justify taking that kind of money away from my family. If you are interested in rockets, then now is the time to become involved.

That's interesting. Someone matching your name added a $100 pledge, then increased it to $500, then cancelled it altogether.

There is no such thing as overkill. There is only cost efficiency.

Okay, so it turns out that my account on NREV has never been validated. Whatever. Would one of you fine gentlemen go ahead and post this information to all of the suggested forums? Even Facebook because my wife makes fun of me when I post nerf stuff in public... :-/

Ok, I put a link to this topic on Nerfrevolution, Home of Foam, Hvz forums, and sent it to Jerm on Nerf mods and reviews. Taerkitty has it on Facebook, already.

Edit: Got it on Nerf Mods and reviews: http://www.nerfmodsr...rt-rockets.html

I just pledged $15. I'm looking forward to some more Titan ammo. Good luck raising the rest of the funding!

How much will the Titan screw on barrels be? And may I give you a cyber high five? I have wanted Stefan rockets all my life, since I am a bazooka man (headshot on coop from 120 feet away)

Eraser is correct. There is also a another option with more rockets. I haven't exactly decided the individual cost of the Titan barrels, partially because I haven't finished them, and it will depend upon whether my really snazzy idea pans out. Stay tuned. They will probably end up around $5 each, plus shipping.

Good news everyone!

The kickstarter campaign has reached 70% of the require pledges! We are doing great! The surprising part is that there are only eighteen people who have pledged support so far. Please help! If you are at all interested (as many of you indicated you were), then now is the time to help! We only need another ten or so people pledging in the very manageable $15 range to make this happen! If you are interested, but don't see a reward you like, let me know and maybe we can put together another level.

Also, one more announcement: Anyone who pledges their support during this campaign (assuming it funds, of course) will also receive free shipping on any and all future rocket and related equipment orders.
