Worth asking to get an idea, but ask lots of people in the target groups and don't depend on the answers. I re-released the Garrison 25mm Assyrians because a number of people asked about them – so far, I haven't sold any. Not one. I'll give the range a couple of months, pull it, then wait for the 'why's it gone, I was meaning to/going to/wanted to buy some of them'.

Often, we don't hear about a new miniature or a new line of miniatures until they hit store/website shelves.

If we are lucky, a mini company might give us a sneak peak of some "greens" anywhere from several months to a few days before the figures go public.

With few exceptions (WF's struggling LaUL) will mini-makers actually request the fan base/public's input throughout the process or after "greens" are produced, and actively alter/improve the minis based on public opinion.

My question is - is it in the companies' best interests to actively seek the public's input throughout the creative process? Or, would it be too hard to please everyone, and ultimately only slow down the production process?
