Kickstarter: 9DKP Trading Card Game

The 9DKP Trading Card Game is the newest Kickstarter project from ESC-Toy. The TCG (trading card game) takes place in the 9DKP universe created by Erick Scarecrow. The objective of the project was the following:

[T]o bring the fun and wacky flavor of the 9DKP universe to table top with a TCG that is light and easy to learn. TCGs can often be intimidating for payers to get invested in due to their complexity of rules, card sets, and time commitment, from playing to deck building. Our objective with 9DKP was to design a TCG that is lighter than most. We feel 9DKP is a great starting point for people who are developing an interest in TCGs, families with younger gamers, or for casual gamers looking for something a bit simpler than the current TCGs on the market.

There are three 9DKP decks: Zombies, Kats, and Survivors. The starter deck (your choice of deck) is available at the $20.00 funding level. You can pick up all three decks (Kat, Survivor, and Zombie) at the $40.00 funding level. The project will only be funded if at least $9,999 is pledged by Saturday, June 4th 2016 at 1:44PM 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 with caution.


Sideshow’s 1/6th Scale 4-LOM


Sideshow Collectibles has announced their newest 1/6th scale Star Wars figure - the bounty hunter named 4-LOM. This limited edition of 2,000 pieces is currently available to pre-order for $210.00.

Within the galaxy of Star Wars there are a lot of things that a protocol droid can do – like being fluent in over six million forms of communications, for example. There are a lot of things that a protocol droid shouldn’t do as well – like becoming a galactically well-known bounty hunter and thief, per se. Yet, that is exactly what 4-LOM became.

Sideshow’s take on the Industrial Automaton’s droid-gone-rogue features a detailed portrait, weathered paint application, two pairs of hands for alternate display, and 4-LOM’s weapon of choice – the BlasTech DLT-19 Heavy Blaster Rifle.

The 4-LOM 1/6th scale figure features the following:

  • Movie-accurate detailed portrait
  • Uniquely crafted torso and mid-section
  • Carefully detailed weathered paint application
  • Pair of relaxed hands (non-poseable)
  • Pair of rifle grip hands (non-poseable)
  • BlasTech DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle
  • Hex base with Star Wars logo on the bottom
