Dan Orosco a.k.a D-LuX has started up a Kickstarter project, looking to help fund his first original figure - Rikishi. (And it has no connection to the old WWE wrestler) With a goal of $7,000, this Kickstarter would fund the entire project from sculpt to the first three pulls (black, white, painted) that will go to Kickstarter contributors.
The current character design drawings will, of course, vary a bit from the completed 9" standard figure. This figure will be sculpted by Chauskoskis and will be produced in Japan. This half-monster, half-wrestler will be made of vinyl and feature five points of articulation.
