Warpo, the indie toy company that last year launched their Legends of Cthulhu via Kickstarter, has announced a new Kickstarter project aimed at getting their 1980's inspired Don’t Cuddle the Krampus plush produced. This retro collectible toy line is based on Santa’s wicked counterpart and comes reimagined as an iconic plush monster toy of 1986 (My Pet Monster, anyone?).
"Don’t Cuddle the Krampus is a large plush toy of the famous Bavarian Christmas monster, standing at 18.5” tall, and comes complete with three Naughty Kids pillows to collect and carry in his Naughty Kid bag, and removable molded manacles with chains."
If you back now, you can still grab one of the 300 Early Bird spots, priced at $65.00 for the Don't Cuddle the Krampus plush plus three Naughty Kids. That price jumps to $80.00 once those spots fill. Also, be forewarned, the shipping on this is $35.00 for US residents and $65.00 for all others. That seems a little steep for a plush toy. But, damn, it's like an updated My Pet Monster...
This project will only be funded if at least $70,000 is pledged by .
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.
