I think timing was also a factor - it was Oct 31, with parents getting
ready to take kids trick or treating, and the young adults/teens still
recovering from last night's wild parties, you'd be lucky if people showed
up at all. I think the advance word on the promotion could have also been
announced a bit earlier so people'd be prepared for it.

Depending on who the target is. If we are selling this to pre-teens who are
beginners, professional looking displays will either impress them so much
that they want to become just as good with their own creations, or turn them
off completely because they cannot make their own kits look even half as good.
The instant gratification mentality so prevalent today tells me the latter is
more likely to happen.
