Or just call it a day. I think that people sometimes stares themselves blind on the process of accumulating more money.
If you've reached the goal maybe it's time to move on to the next idea and do a new crowdfunding project later.
I think the idea of always introducing new stretchgoals has become a little to big and it becomes a situation where you kinda can't see the forest for all the trees.

Don't get me wrong, if you have more stretchgoals already lined up and ready to distribute then by all means do them. But if it's becoming somewhat of a hassle of coming up with new stuff maybe it's better to stop with this project. Sit back and enjoy a very succesfull crowdfunding campaign.

I have a few things in the bag, including both stand alone sets and complementary add-on sets that work with the plastic set.

Why call it a day now when some more profit now means extra sculpts on the sprue?

I think what could really get it going again is to show the next step in improving the sprue...

This happened to me. I just chipped in for an army box, but when payday comes, I'll contribute much more.

I think we caught E&C by surprise. It is funded, (which I'm very glad about) and everyone here is just starting to edge into a little burnt out on it (which is inevitable).
BUT once the sprue is cut, it's cut, and will probably stay cut like that for years (since there's a ton of other projects we all follow). I'd really like to get some variant poses on it in the first place.

Sample expanded Alien sprue. >:D

The Gobbler would need a little bulking up in the legs to be able to cast correctly in plastic.
I'll be sculpting a basic "rifleman" type sculpt for the aliens shortly too.

This would be close to the "ideal" version of the Alien part of the sprue.

That is much better, and if I'm reading the above correctly, one more pose (rifleman) to add on?

I really hope we can reach this target!

The gun looks odd (big one). Smaller would be better imo. That looks like its hard to even use. Other wise good add ons
