Prices range for $25 for a handful of 3-inch toys to $5,000 for an exclusive handmade 4-foot version. The figure took 8 months to design, and is a collaboration between Budnitz and Superplastic art director Huck Gee.

As I say with all Kickstarter projects 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.
