Turning a long-cherished idea into reality: Secure your exclusive Baby Boron Plushie!

Post by Gregory » Mon, 16. Jan 23, 14:43

We've got a somewhat unusual campaign for you this year, which we hope will be to your taste. After several months of collaboration with the plushie professionals at Makeship, we are turning a long-cherished idea into reality.

Introducing… Baby Boron Plushie! We are excited to announce that our crowdfunding campaign, for the cutest, cuddliest plushie you've ever seen, is starting soon. This plushie is the perfect companion for any X4 fan, with its soft, huggable body and adorable features.

Baby Boron will watch your back while you enjoy the long-awaited reunion with the Boron in X4: Kingdom End, the fourth expansion for X4: Foundations, later this year.

Please note that all Makeship plushies are unique editions. This specific Baby Boron Plushie will no longer be available after the end of this campaign.

How can I get one?
The Baby Boron Plushie crowdfunding campaign starts on January 23rd, 2023, at 6pm GMT (10am PST / 1pm EST / 7pm CET) over at makeship.com. Once the campaign goes live, you will be able to purchase your very own limited Baby Boron Plushie at Makeship ($29.99).

The campaign will run for 21 days. If the campaign reaches the minimum order goal, Makeship will start production of the Baby Boron Plushie. If the minimum goal is not met, all customers will be refunded for their orders.

If the campaign is successful and the Baby Boron Plushies are produced, they will be shipped 2-3 months after the campaign end date. Shipping typically takes 7-15 business days depending on the destination country and city. Delivery to some areas may take 10-30 business days.

Visit the Makeship Help Center if you have any further questions about the crowdfunding campaign process.

My 46 years old won't stop me from getting this plushie :eg:

Is it made from child-safe materials? I'm likely to put it in my mouth at some point...it's a habit I've never been able to break... :)

LOL, awesome. This guy is going to be my own personal Boron scientist. Of course, that means I'm going to have to....put him in an aquarium? Hrm. We'll have to figure out another way for him to hang out on my desk. 3D printing a Boron suit? No, still need water. Why do you bring such conundrums into my life Egosoft!?

Hah, would be funny to see something like this ingame, like a little baby boron plushie in the PHQ office room after you meet the Boron for the first time.

You make it sound like the babies are delivered before X4:KE. If they are delivered in May-June (or never) ...

I can't wait to purchase one! OMG so adorable :> Might even try for 2! One for on my bed and another for my office on the bookcase. Hopefully we can get some more opportunities like this to purchase other X series collectables in the future. There's so many things I've love to have to decorate with like posters, statues, lamps, mousepads, coffee cups, ect. Ohhhh maybe an zip up hoodie with different colors/faction logo's so we can represent our favorites? The possibilities!!! Haha. 2023 is shaping up to be an amazing year for this game. Thank you for everything gentle devs. Much love!

According to some comments on the company's subreddit, they ship out of Shenzhen.

:O

Someone please quote me or dm me on release day. I'm likely to forget between now and then but I do check the forum daily!

I plan to buy at least one extra to mod with a little speaker that plays the Kingdoms End song from X3.

Careful, you might not want to know what might be inside them. (Ever wonder where most of the tadpoles from your frogspawn tank disappear to?) :D

I support the developers, but your account and the posts you have made are suspicious. If i were to guess, it's marketing account by Egosoft. You joined in 2020 yet you only ever made five posts, every post of which sponsors or endorses something Egosoft have done/did.

Also the plushie is horribly ugly. Looks like Cthulu cow, it even has tits.

I am pretty sure, that the only PR person here in the office (Greg) has better things to do, than to push with an alternate account his own marketing material.
