Hollywood creature designer and filmmaker Sandy Collora has taken to Kickstarter to raise funds to produce figures based on characters his short film - Shallow Water. This lost tribe of reptilian prehistoric sea creatures is called the Tiburonera - The Shark Hunters. The figures stand approximately 7.5 inches tall. The figures will be available in five different color patterns (matching those from the film) with the figures named Drones, the Scout, the Tracker, the Monarch, and the Shaman. The sculpt is the same for all of the figures except for the Monarch, who shows the age and battle damage he's sustained over the millennia.
Currently, an individual figure is available at the $35.00 funding level. There will be weapon packs available. And there's a variety of different packages you can choose from. This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Tuesday, August 29th 2017 at 1:35AM ET.
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.
David Withers aka Chaingun! has created The Coalition of Chaos - Theresa Mayhem action figure. This homebrew, low run resin art toy with a bootleg aesthetic is designed to appeal to politically motivated art collectors and fans of kookie art toys. It's based on Theresa May's failure at the British polls on June 8th 2017 and her subsequent alignment with the DUP.
The figure will be released in a very limited run of 8 pieces with a second run of 10 pieces on a slightly different card back. The line may then expand to include other notorious British political figures. These pieces will be for sale over at http://chaingunart.bigcartel.com/ where it will be launching on Saturday August 20th 2017. The figure retails at £40.00 (about $53) plus postage and there will also be a deluxe package which contains a figure and the original production artwork for £450.00.
