Seems like theres a few IV members itching for foamwinians and stuff so decided to start a poll to see actually how many ppl are willing to purchase them and if it will be profitable to IV to produce.

The Darwinia posters are rather sexy, I bought one of those. And how come yellow foamwinians don't get to be written in ALL CAPS? Are they not special enough?

Where is "multiple choices" and "Cowboy Neal" and "Trout are smashed" options?

I'd get the keyring, and various merchandise. Like an IV branded glass for example. Or a frosted coffee cup with the IV logo on it.

I have a (small) collection of frosted mugs. I'd buy one of those for sure.

Let's see:

Patriots Point
Ripley's Aquarium (TN and SC)
Memphis Zoo (panda exibit too, very nice one)
Kennedy Space Center (was disappointed with their selection)

Not very many, but I just started a couple of years ago and plan on going till I die. An IV mug wouldn't fit very well, but it'd be special nonetheless. :D

I'm sorry you had to visit Memphis :P

I would pick misc items, Foamwinians, and probably more stuff if IV does release it.

I would really like to get a hold of a CD with tons of IV stuff on their, Special content from all the games they have made. Clips from interviews and whatever else they could fit in there.

Heh, well I've got a couple of Memphis in May stories. :P I used to live within 2 hours of it. The zoo was always nice, better than some others I've been to... (good shade, decent exhibits, and decent food)

This poll needs less radio buttons and more nuking of w[h]ales!
Also, I would probably buy foamwinians, a t-shirt and poster with my next game purchase.

I suppose, they're the only kind I still don't have, and also the only kind I didn't see at the release party. They are somehow connected. ;)

I have both Darwinia posters but am not sure I'd buy any other merchandise that fast. My room is already so small that the poster, the five Foamwinians and my Fluffwinian already make the thing feel like an Introversion shrine. :P While I don't consider that in itself to be a bad thing, I'm unlikely to buy any awkward stuff to add to the collection and am not one to go around praising Introversion openly - that pretty much puts T-Shirts and related stuff out of the way. (I'll admit that I carried Foamwinians to school on some occasions though...) A keychain would be nice, but I think I'll try to create one of those myself once.

That does remind me that I'm rather envious of NeoThermic and Rkiver when they showed me the Introversion glasses they had 'nicked' from the Flying Hamster's kitchen with Mark's permission - I really wish I'd followed them back then and had gotten one of them myself instead of going up and meeting all the other cool guys (even though that doesn't sound right ;)).

Oh well, I guess that's something I have planned for my next Londonite trip. :D

PS: I voted the misc option, I'm pretty sure there's some really obscure kinds of goodies Introversion can invent which I will like. :P

Voted misc, because of the t-shirts, although more foamwinians would be cool.

Voted Foamwinians: The number one Collectable of IV :)

And when the little key-winian finally starts to loose his limbs, I'd love to buy a replacement for him to guard my keys.

And other stuff too. Hey, Megatokyo did it, why not IV?

Agreed. But, uh, 'Which of these would you be most likely to buy?' would make more sense as a question, given none of these are actually chances and we're only able to choose one. /pedantry
