Don’t Starve – Chester Plush

ESC Chester

Klei Entertainment, the developers behind the video game Don't Starve, have teamed up with Erick Scarecrow to create a plush replica of one of the game's most loved characters - Chester.

A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to support the development of the 11" tall plush Chester, and also debut the highly anticipated Don't Starve blind box collectible figure line - also made in collaboration with ESC-Toy. The series consists of 12 blind-boxed figures, each with a pair of accessories.

These can all be had at the various funding levels. Since they've already surpassed their goal, this project will be funded on Friday December 27th 2013 at 12:58PM EST.

30 Years Of Garbage: The Garbage Pail Kids Story

30 Years Of Garbage: The Garbage Pail Kids Story is a Kickstarter funded documentary slated celebrate the 30th anniversary of Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids Cards. If all funds are raised, they will be interviewing the original creators of the popular 1980’s trading card series. And there will be plenty of super-fans and artists who were directly impacted by GPKs.

The majority of Kickstarter contributions will go towards travel expenses, crew, and camera equipment rental for creator/artist interviews. They've secured interview commitments from original Garbage Pail Kids Creators: Art Spiegelman, Len Brown, Mark Newgarden, John Pound, Tom Bunk, Jay Lynch and others.

And there are some great funding rewards (including a GPK Paper Foldable). However, this project will only be funded if at least $75,000 is pledged by Sunday January 5th 2014 at 11:59PM EST. Please...don't let me down.

Help Kickstart 9DKP from Erick Scarecrow

9DKP (9 Deadly Killer Pussies) is a new anime about nine different people that are randomly chosen to receive shape shifter powers. These powers are given to them once a cat demon named Babusa is accidentally freed from his imprisoned state within the 9 Eyes Stone. The story is set to be centered around the last member of the 9DKP, who thinks he won his powers through a prize, and feels he doesn't need to be in the team since he's "NUMBER 1".

Created by Erick Scarecrow of ESC-Toy, the 9DKP anime project will be hand animated by Asahi Production and dubbed in English. Through their Kickstarter project, the goal is to produce an 20 minute long episode. Of course, as stretch goals are met, the length of the film will grow.

The project will only be funded if at least $159,999 is pledged by Wednesday December 18th 2013 at 9:36PM EST. And there are plenty of toy-related funding rewards, including plush and resin figures.

Kickstart Bio-Mechanical Ordnance Gestalt

BMOG Toys has taken to Kickstarter to help raise funds for their Bio-Mechanical Ordnance Gestalt line. They are building toy system that lets you make robotic animal characters from components that can be used as action figure accessories - with plenty of modern or vintage toy lines. Each Bio-Mechanical Ordnance Gestalt figure will come on a model kit-style plastic sprue and include a decal sheet.

While the first main colorway for Ursenal and Mantax is black, contributors of the Kickstarter project ($15 and above levels) will receive one or more figures in a special colorway produced only for this Kickstarter funding project.

The Kickstarter project will only be funded if at least $19,000 is pledged by Friday December 13th 2013 at 2:35PM EST.

MimoPower BatteryBot

Mimoco has introduced MimoPower BatteryBot - a rechargeable backup battery for smartphones, tablets and mobile devices. This is their first in the MimoPower line of mobile charging accessories.

They're going the Kickstarter route in order to get the initial 10 BatteryBot designs kicked off. These designs are from the Animal Critterz and Core Series collections. Personally, I feel like they would gain much more support (and funds) by not including the licensed BatteryBots as part of their stretch goals.

This project will only be funded if at least $65,000 is pledged by Friday November 22nd 2013 at 11:59pm EST.

I Bug You: Infecting the world!

Beca has been sculpting little handmade 'Bugs' for several years now. And while they've been selling really well at high-end shops around Miami, it's gotten to the point that she can't fulfill the orders by hand-making them anymore.

So, she has has taken to Kickstarter to help raise funds to produce vinyl versions of the Bugs. The money raised on Kickstarter will be to used to produce the mold, manufacture vinyl figurines on a keychain/zipper pull, cover testing for hazardous material, and packaging.

This project will only be funded if at least $12,500 is pledged by Sunday December 8th 2013 at 12:13AM EST.

Mr. Smith: Spinning on a Dizzy Edge


Designer Derrick Cruz of Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons has taken to Kickstarter to help fund the final chapter of his Musical Muses Series Mr. Smith: Spinning on a Dizzy Edge. For a $75.00 pledge, the first 100 backers will be guaranteed a handcrafted and painted figure shipped by Christmas 2013.

Mr Smith 3

The 7.25" tall Robert Smith figure will be available in both painted and unpainted versions. But this project will only be funded if at least $12,000 is pledged by Friday November 22nd 2013 at 5:40PM EST.

Vicious Plush looks to get Kickstarted

Vicious Plush

Natalie and Natasha (NatsToys) have created the Vicious Plush line and taken their production hopes to Kickstarter. As with all Kickstarter projects, they have several funding levels available. The first level where one of the three plush toys (Tear Bear, BaBOO!, and Hissy Puss) is available is at $35.00.

The Kickstarter project will only be funded if at least $25,000 is pledged by Monday November 4th 2013 at 1:26AM ET. But before you decide, you should really check out the below video. I think the most unintentionally funny moment is when a few kids are putting on a puppet show with an angry, bloody bear.

Monstermatic: Design and 3D Print a Monster

Monstermatic is the first free mobile game app that allows users to create and 3D PRINT custom designed monsters. Players are given tools to invent, interact, share, and ultimately unleash their monsters into the world through 3D printing technology. New monsters and further customization options can be unlocked simply by playing the game.

Monstermatic

Clayton Mitchell and the Monstermatic team have taken to Kickstarter in ordering to get funding for the project. As you can see, they already have 3D printed versions of some of the monsters you can create.

I've seen this type of project a lot with plush toys, but this is one of the first with 3D printed pieces. The Monstermatic project will only be funded if at least $30,000 is pledged by Wednesday October 16th 2013 at 6:01PM ET.
