Ah yes, forgot about that. Makes sense. Still an extremely low edition size.As far as I understood, all the higher tiers get them as well, so that'd bring the number up to exactly 40.
Good to know they won't be selling these at the event. Hope I can find a way to get in on the stuff being sold there. I would love an updated art book. I agree the pin set doesn't look that great but I think the frame for them is pretty cool. Man I hate scalpers. Wonder is they contributed to the shikishis selling out.We'll see, but they specifically said the crowdfunding rewards would not be sold at the event. They'll have other goods available there. As for the pin badge set, yes the higher tiers got them as well, but that aside I wouldn't feel bad if I were you. The reason so few people went for it is that it just doesn't look that good. In fact I suspect that a few of those who backed that tier only did so because they figured they could resell it as a "rare item" a year from now.
Like I said when the campaign started, the best tiers outside of Miura's autograph were clearly the ¥18,000 and ¥35,000 ones, which is why most people went for them.
