Default Benchwarmers Dreamgirls....another late release.

Sponsored this program in good faith about 7/8 months ago, with the approximate release by the end of December. Almost April now and it feels like I put money in the bank with no interest on my investment. Sorry for the little rant but Brian has too many irons in the fire.

Looking at his Twitter feed it seems he is spending all his time watching election news and not working. We may not see anything until the election is over... although some Dreamgirls cards are starting to show up on Ebay.

BW... bored waiting. He put a lot of time into this 2016 Election product. there hasn't been a release date for any benchwarmer product since we last broke DD Update 2. bored out of my mind right now. Trying to break basketball to pass the time. Anyone have a product they dont' see people busting that they think will fill and be fun, let me know and i'll post.

Original release date was November & he said the book was being made at that time.

Then in December it was being expanded but by February it was going to a different publisher??

It would alleviate aggravation if they'd just simply actually post updates on the Kickstarter page. Seriously - the only time anyone gets anything is when they finally question why yet another supposed release date comes and goes for weeks.

Yep.. the cards have been made. Michelle Baena is selling one of her Dream Dates cards on her Ebay page.



Maybe they will come out fairly soon?

You want bad... I participated in a kickstarted project to raise funds for the Fukushima disaster that is still pending and no funds donated after 5 years.

They took the money and it has vanished into a black hole.

Kickstarter basically says not our problem

Yep seeing on some of the models Instagrams (as well as BW's) pictures of them signing for the Dreamgirls product. Sucks that we have to keep waiting but this set looks well worth it. The autographed booklets look like the best items I have seen from a BW product

Perhaps we should go big and do multiple cases?

bw just got really defensive on FB about someone's post about Decision 2016. lots of swearing.

Seen a Shelby Chesnes on ebay a week ago like the Baena above. Don't know what it sold for though.

That's the reason why Blowout doesn't want any political talk. No conversation ends peacefully when you give representatives from both parties a voice

Aaaaan for whenever Dreamgirls comes out multi case should be a good idea. Everyone is going to be interested especially with all new photos of their girls

I do wish he'd stop with his political ranting and back to his livelihood. Honestly I think I might be done with the BW product based on the delays from every product, and from having to filter out all his political ranting from his feeds just to get a legitimate product update. He needs to hire some staff and get back to work.

I remember Jessica Kinni talking about Dreamgirls last Jan-Feb when she and Lisa Gleave were breaking BW Group Breaks on breakers and they pulled a few of these promo cards.



It still hasn't been released?

i have really lost interest in BW. have been collecting them since the early 2000's when there was only 2-4 releases per year. that is a good number of sets per year.

I agree with glen. I've been turned off by these stupid archive sets that I'm just finishing up the last of my Candace kita PC then calling it quits. Plus the secondary market just isn't the same with too many of similar autograph cards and recycled pictures of the models. BW had a good run though probably up to the beginning of 2014 IMO.

Just pick and choose which products actually look good to you. I usually avoid the Daisy Dukez and Vegas ones since I really don't like their look at all. Willing to wait for Dreamgirls as it is very different from most other releases they've had

i used to work on the auto sets. now, the problem is, i will get close to a complete set.

then the vault version will come out with autos not inserted into the initial release

then the archives version will release a few more previously unreleased ones

then the update will come out with even more unreleased ones

very difficult to "complete" sets anymore. that was the hook for me until about 2013.

... so to break Pink Archive or to not break pink archive final edition?

I agree with those above in saying that I really do not enjoy the re-stamping of cards. thus I will not collect them. I have barely any re-stamped Angela Fong cards because i chose not to pursue them.

I say pass. It's kinda insulting to the collectors to announce this product why still leaving us in the lurch about Dreamgirls. And by starting to tease us with Gold. He's been alternating an archive/vault set in between each new set, and that's too much. This is essentially an archive product of an archive product.
