It's (hopefully) finally coming to fruition. Initially dreamt up some 15 years ago, Kaiju Big Battel has launched a new Kickstarter Project in an attempt to fund Kaikeshi - the Kaiju Big Battel Mini Figures Series.
"As some of you are aware, Kaiju Big Battel is a product of the pop culture feedback loop between America and Japan. Giant city crushing monsters, Pro-Wrestling, Anime, Cosplay and numerous other influences put in a blender and tossed back and forth for 50 years."
And now, they're attempting to bring some of those characters only seen in the wrestling ring into your toy collection as 2-inch tall (M.U.S.C.L.E./Kinnikuman-like figures). KBB has well over 140 characters, from the ever popular Kung-Fu Chicken Noodle to the forgotten Vegan Vampire. Series 1 will consist of 11 characters, including: Dr. Cube, Astroroach (an original character never seen in the ring), RoBox, French Toast, Cycloptopuss, Phyden, Silver Potato, Pedro Plaintain, Sky Deviler Mother, Sky Deviler Daughter, and Dr. Cube Minion.
There are various funding levels, with a complete set of flesh colored figures available at $25.00...all the way up to $1,200 for your own exclusive colorway of 1,100 figures. This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thursday August 30th 2018 at 11:58 PM EDT.
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. (To be completely transparent, I'm backing this project)
