Kickstarter: Army Alphas 1:12 Action Figure Line

Cryptid Toys is down to a little over one day left on their latest Kickstarter project - the Army Alphas 1/12th scale (6 inch tall) figure line. They focused on three areas for this line: Articulation, Customization, and Compatibility. There's a ton of articulation on these figures, several accessories, including alternate heads and weapons, and the ability to swap components between figures.

Right now, the project is fully funded. However, there are still a number of stretch goals that can be hit...unlocking additional figures. The current figures are shown below: Deluxe - UCP Trooper; Basic - Space Trooper; Basic - Serpent Trooper; Basic - Blue SWAT; Basic - Night Ops SWAT. Basically, the Basic figures are available for pledges of $25.00 for figure, while the Deluxe figures are available at pledges of $33.00 per figure. Also, there's a 20 piece accessory pack ($25.00), and stretch goals at $70K, $75K, and $80K.

This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Friday, March 15th 2019 at 10:00PM ET.

As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. 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.

This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sunday April 14th 2019 at 7:03PM ET.

Slonkabot 1000-5YL

Artist Mike Slobot has released the latest figure into his universe of robot art - it's called Slonkabot 1000-5YL.

I like to think that I am the Willy Wonka of my Slobot universe, so I created a robot character inspired by the Ooompa Loompas in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" - except that my Slonkabots don't make chocolate, they help me make my robot art (The Slobots).

I have been creating my Slobots since 2004 in sculpture, paintings, drawings, and digital. Most of the sculptures are one of a kind works of art using old and new toys, odds and ends from my everyday life, and things that would normally be thrown away. A lot of them have glow-in-the-dark eyes and wires, like the Slonkabot 1000-5YL.

The one-off custom Slonkabot 1000-5YL, which uses a 8-inch KAWS Companion figure, can be purchased for $350.00.
