Sorry I've been out of the loop, I haven't read all the recent updates on this thread but as far as I know, I should be distributing them within the US. I think the boxes will arrive at my mailbox soon and then I'll get them up on my products page (which will be updated and improved soon) so everyone in the US can order with pretty cheap shipping and fast delivery.

I look forward to seeing the final product too!

HEY!

I have 160 copies here which are going to be send to Robert for distribution tomorrow.

We did a LOT of advertsing here in Germany, i think we can sell quite a few. I think we'll sell at least 3 times the number Robert is going to sell in the USA ;) And i hope it! :shock:

The biggest vegetarian magazine (the official magazine of Germany's vegetarian society) will have the calendar on their next cover! They asked me if they could put it as title story and use one of the pictures. I said "No way!" :lol: Of course i didn't say that, more like "Sure thing mister!"
So probably Topher's abs are going to decorate the next issue :D

I'm sorry to say that Topher's fantastic abs are (almost) the only abs in the calendar...
I made many pics and it was hard to choose, but you won't find my abs in there. I thought when choosing the pictures that Tophers abs are enough for any calendar :D so i decided to show my back instead ;)

Hey Boys and Girls!

I got the calendar today and it is really great! I liked especially the texts describing the athlets and of course the pics are fantastic.
But Alex: What kind of underwear is that? For a photoshooting you could have choosen something sexier :wink: . And Robert: What exactly are you doing in that garden? Maybe I just do not have that sense for art.
Anyway: If you plan a calendar for 2007 I would be glad to join! I already have some ideas for pictures...

Alex: Great job!

Less fabric? More? Another color? Tell me :D

Alex: Great job!

It was quite some work, but i'm contended with the result. 8)

Ned, that depends on how well it sells this year.
I'm anxious about that, because i have to put up the 4'500 Euro the printing costs. If i can't sell enough copies, i won't be doing this again!

But if i sell enough, i'll definitely do it again next year.
I learned through the production process and think i'll be better next time ;) As will be the calendar :D
But i'll start planning that in march.

Ouch....I'll try having some patience for once, that's an insane amount of money!

And common, what could Alex where that WOULDN'T be sexy? He's totally hot and his body is perfect :) He should wear a paper sack just to make things fair on the rest of the world :)

@veggiemeggy: I can asure you that a paper sack looks better than the underwear he weares an the picture... :lol:

@Alex: Hope it sells well and another question: why didn`t you put a competition pic into the calendar? That would have been even more impressing!

Have you asked food fight if they would carry them? Not that I am trying to take sales away from Rob. They have a fare selection of books there and I think they already have one vegan calendar (someone’s art work). Just a thought… I was going to post their email but this stupid computer won’t open it!!! Here is there web site; in it is an “email us” link. http://store.foodfightgrocery.com/ Talk to them!!!! They rock!!!!

Hey everyone,

Once the calendars arrive here in the US I'll put them up on the website and I'll also work to get them in many stores around my area.

I haven't worked on the main site too much lately because my website guy moved away many months ago but I'll try to do some stuff myself and get the calendar up there on the products page.

I also look forward to seeing it :)

I think we will do it again next year. Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness will probably fund the project the second time around. Assuming our movie Vegan Fitness Built Naturally sells well, which I think it will, funding the calendar should be no problem.

So everyone in the US, just wait a couple of weeks and we'll have the calendars here!

-Robert
