Only 3,700 supporters out of 70,000 views for LEGO set?

I gotta ask, who are the 95% of people who do NOT want to see a LEGO set for FTL? It seems like the # of supporters hasn't gone up more than a few dozen in the past couple of weeks. I just checked and it is only 3,702 out of the 10,000 required. And yet it says there have been over 70,000 page views? Who are you 67,000 people who have looked at that CUUSOO site and said "nah, we don't need that, and I'm not spending a whole minute of my time just to let anyone else have that".

This would be the first LEGO set I have bought in over a decade! Come on, guys!

I'm part of the 95%.

Lego's too expensive for what you get. This is a personal opinion and your opinion may differ.

I am on the dole, if I could afford real meat, I would eat it, if I could afford real cheese, I would eat it as well.

Honestly, I have to agree with 5th there, it's too expensive for me to go for a lego set of FTL, as much as I want it, I cannot afford it.

You didn't put a link. I didn't even know about this until you posted it.

If "support" means "I would buy it" then no, I won't do it. I try to not be blatantly dishonest. If it means "I like this! Thumbs up!" then sure I'll click a button for you :)

It's not just as simple as clicking a "support" button, it requires an account and i guess some of use have enough useless accounts.

The chances of this actually happening are quite minimal as well. I think the low number of supporters is realistic.

I still have an account from when Eve Online asked for support from its members to get Rifters made. I'd happily vote for FTL goodness, even if I don't actually buy the end product. Plus registration of the account took a minute or two tops, so no biggie.

Actually, there was a really informative post awhile back regarding this same topic. The legos are actually no more expensive than they used to be, really. If I recall right, they've actually gotten cheaper per brick.

But yeah, I don't care to see this in lego form. Would be cool for some, but not my slice of pie.
