John LaFleur and Dave Metzger have joined up to offer a new twist on the classic children's story and song "8 Little Monkeys", updated for older kids and today's fixation with the undead. They're looking to raise funds to produce 8 Little Zombies, a book and a 12" tall plush, via Kickstarter.
Backer rewards include the plush, book, limited edition print, and a t-shirt. This project will only be funded if at least $10,000 is pledged by Sunday, March 30th 2014 at 5:08 PM EST.
The Atomic Chicken is an 8" tall one-of-a-kind hand painted, hand cast resin. He comes with a pecked over die-cast Porsche 911SC and a tasty little driver. The custom has been signed and dated 2014 by Bob.
Here is the backstory:
It's not often that you receive an email from a toy robot that is threatening to end your world. Here's what I received from the PH-42 robot, which apparently will be released in two versions in the near future.
My name is PH-42. I am here to inform you that your destruction is inevitable! Soon I will be releasing a legion of robot soldiers to destroy your world.
Before I unleash my fiery vengeance on your planet I am giving you the opportunity to save yourself by helping me to build my robot army. Soon you'll be given the opportunity to purchase one of these 2 unique vinyl robot soldiers: PH-42 (modeled after myself) and DIY-01. Not only do you get an amazingly detailed 7"(17.80cm) Robot Solider but by purchasing a robot soldier you guarantee your own survival.
Please keep these lines of communication open, as more details are soon to follow. Save your pennies now as only YOU can prevent your own obliteration.
