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.

Kickstarter: Erick Scarecrow x Hato Moa – Hatoful Boyfriend Plush


Erick Scarecrow (ESC-Toy) is currently working on a new Kickstarter project that will be raising funds to produce a series of plush toys from the Japanese game Hatoful Boyfriend. So...what is Hatoful Boyfriend? It's a "Japanese pigeon dating sim game series, originally created by Hato Moa as an April fool's joke in 2011. The story stands out from other games in the genre by combing a unique setting, twisted sense of humor, and extremely satirical elements. Because of this Hatoful Boyfriend built a dedicated fan base and quickly grew from a practical joke into a franchise that has now been brought to Windows, OSX, Linux, Playstation 4, and Playstation Vita. Hatoful Boyfriend is a text-based visual novel where almost all characters except the player are birds."

Funding levels include a trio of 5-inch Hatoful Boyfriend plush toys (RYOUTA, OKOSAN, SHUU) at the $25.00 plus shipping level. There will also be a pair of exclusive plush (100 pieces each) available at the $75.00 level. And, finally, the complete set, which also includes a print of your favorite character and a 12-inch SHUU, available at the $1,000.00 level and limited to only 10 pieces.

KICKSTARTER: Starbound – Penguin Plush Project

Chucklefish and ESC-Toy have been working on a plush project for quite some time. It's based on Chucklefish's video game entitled Starbound, and they've taken to Kickstarter to raise funds to get the plush toys into production. 


Starbound is an extraterrestrial sandbox adventure game in which you take on the role of a character who’s just fled from their home planet, only to find themselves lost in space with a damaged ship. Their only option is to beam down to the planet below and begin gathering the resources they need to repair their ship and set off to explore the vast, infinite universe…

Use the starmap to travel between star systems, settle down and farm the land, build and colonize a modern metropolis or take on jobs and earn a living, and do all of it alone or with friends! With a near-infinite number of procedurally generated worlds to discover, Starbound allows players to create their own adventures in space. 

Rewards include all of the plush Penguins and accessories shown off below. The Standard Penguin (no accessories) is available at an early-bird price of $20, until those slots fill up when it will be available at the $30 funding level. Including accessories and other, more limited, colorways will be available at increased pledge levels.

This project will only be funded if at least $49,000 is pledged by .

KICKSTARTER: ESC-Toy introduces Hotline Miami’s Biker


ESC-Toy has returned with a new Kickstarter project featuring another character from the hit video game Hotline Miami. Following up on their recently shipped Jacket figure, Biker is the next character who will hopefully be transformed into 1/6th scale.  

Biker receives similar phone calls and incentives as Jacket, but things go awry when he tries to pull out of the group. After initially joining 50 Blessings out of boredom, Biker has no issues with killing mobsters, but wants out when he begins searching for the truth behind the hit group. Armed with a cleaver and throwing knives, Biker gets involved in a confrontation with Jacket, forcing Jacket to take him down or risk getting killed himself.

The figure stands 12-inches tall and comes with two removable heads (Biker helmet and unmasked Biker), two removable vests, a pair of jeans, removable boots, a meat cleaver, a set of three throwing knives, and a signature Hotline Miami doll stand. The figure is available beginning at the $80.00 funding level. Also, there are several other limited edition colorways available beginning at the $175.00 level.

If the first figure is any indication of this one, you'll want to be a part of it. This project will only be funded if at least $55,000 is pledged by .
