KICKSTARTER: Gravy Toys Mega Load

Artist Bwana Spoons and Gravy Toys have started a brand-spanking-new Kickstarter project that's looking to produce some new characters in sofubi. The goal is to raise $9,000 to produce new Sons of Brodarr characters in Malba and Krackle & Klong. There are plenty of various funding levels, with chances to get your hands on one of a kind paint-ups...or have Bwana come crash on your sofa and paint a mural. 

This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sunday, March 18th 2018 at 2:28PM EDT. (The photos below are of early tests - resin/sculpt/etc) The Basic Malba reward is available at the $44.00 level, while the Basic Krackle & Klong is at $88.00.

As I say with all Kickstarter project I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution.

"This is a limited-edition red variant of our Tenacious Toys shop mascot Danger. Red is an auspicious color for the Chinese, so we had this little dude cast in red and bagged with a festive and totally on-brand header card fashioned after the lucky red envelopes handed out this time of year."
