Kickstarter: Cronus Magnus

The Enter: Cronus Magnus Kickstarter campaign is a follow up to Eric Smith's (Fullblownink) previously successful 2014 Project: Vulkira Kickstarter campaign. Cronus Magnus is the same scale as Vulkira and stands 10.5-inches tall, comes with interchangeable hands and weapons, and also features a printed foil belly sticker like the old Shogun Warriors from the 70s. There are additional rewards like stickers, buttons, a patch, a resin action figure and some art work by some of today’s incredible artists like Daniel Brereton and Darryl Banks, both DC Comics veterans (as well as many other artists). The vinyl Cronus Magnus is available beginning at the $100.00 funding level. 

The project will only be funded if at least $16,000 is pledged by Friday, July 8th 2016 at 5:55PM EDT.

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 with caution.
