KICKSTARTER: Hotline Miami – Mafia Thug (and Camo Jacket)

Alright, folks, let's get this thing funded. Erick Scarecrow and ESC-Toy are in the middle of a Kickstarter project to try to get their Hotline Miami - Mafia Thug 1/6th scale figure funded and produced (and onto our shelves - yes, I have backed it). From the video game Hotline Miami, the Mafia Thug figure is available beginning at the $85.00 funding level.

The Mafia set comes with five removable heads: Mafia Thug, Shotgun Mafia Thug, Charlie (Octopus), Graham (Rabbit), and Future Biker head. The figure also comes with four weapons/accessories - a fire axe, a switch blade, a kitchen knife, and a flask. He is also fitted with a white jacket and pants, blue button-up shirt, and black dress shoes. 

Also, if you missed out on the Jacket figure from Hotline Miami, now is your chance to grab one. Plus, ESC-Toy is releasing a Camo Jacket figure set ($150-$175 funding levels) that is shown below.

This project will only be funded if it reaches its $75,000 goal by Saturday, October 28th 2017 at 12:59PM ET (it's currently funded at $32,499 - let's go!).

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 (everything I've backed from ESC-Toy has been delivered). So back all Kickstarters with caution.

9DKP Micro Animated Series

ESC-Toy has released their all new 9DKP Micro Animated Series over at the ESC Toy Youtube Channel. "Immerse yourself in the world of 9DKP filled with Kats, Zombies, and Survivors told in a cute, funny, and retro way. Watch your favorite 9DKP characters come to life and find out what they are up to."

I checked out the first two episodes (there are 10 total episodes as of posting of this article). They've created the series with an early 90's retro video game style. Think Super NES style graphics. Based on the card game (which also now has an app), each episode runs about 3 minutes in length.

Since the 9DKP concept was created by Erick Scarecrow, I'm wondering how long before we see some toy series based on it. Personally, I feel a blind box line would be perfect.

Kickstarter: TRBO: The Rival Bikers Overdrive

Erick Scarecrow and ESC-Toy have launched their very first board game project - TRBO: The Rival Bikers Overdrive over on Kickstarter.

Here's a brief overview of the game:

TRBO is a fast-paced and easy to learn board game for 2–4 players. Featuring high quality miniatures, custom movement dice, and an ample amount of ‘take-that!’ cards, TRBO embraces the ease of play found in retro-board games, while capturing the wacky and hectic experience of kart racing games of the 16-bit era!

Tune-Up cards, boost spaces, and dynamic, dice driven combat, will keep players on the edge of their seats as they race towards victory with their unique biker club. Playing in 30-45 minutes TRBO is a lighthearted and quick game perfect for family gatherings, or friendly gaming nights.

The $49.00 pledge level ($44 for early bird) gets you a copy of the game, the Tractor Jackers Expansion Club, and any unlocked stretch goals. The project will be funded if at least $55,000 is pledged by .
