Robot Monster Kick Starter
« on: November 11, 2019, 10:30:21 PM »
Hi all,
This company is having a Kick Starter to fund a 13 inch Robot Monster figure. I already pledged. They have to meet a goal for the figure to come to fruition. So come on everyone, if you like the character, pledge.

I wish they'd posted an image of the second skull head and the glow figure-- those are what I'd opt for.
Kickstarter is a tough system, I've supported a lot of stuff and I've only gotten a small handful of them in return.   A lot of endless delays, life gets in the way, etc.   Sometimes people are overwhelmed at the results and just lose sight of getting the rewards filled.

I'm not saying this to scare off potential supporters, I'm likely going to go for the $100 tier for the glow with skull, but it's a shame that so many people not following through sour it for everyone.

Thanks for sharing this! I've always wanted a Ro-Man figure!
Just donated to the $60 tier for the original colors.

They are up to $6,509. They need $16,000 to make it happen. 25 days to go.

I've used KickTraq with every campaign I've either supported or been involved with-- and it's been 100% accurate as to whether a project will get funded if the early tracking total surpasses the goal by more than 25%-- the final number isn't always as high as predicted but usually runs about 85%-- so it looks like they'll hit their goal.

I got their previous Harryhausen Saucerman, and that was all pretty smooth. I'd view them as pretty trustworthy.

Yeah I looked into them after my comments (shame on me) and they are standup.  I pledged for a glow figure with skull head.

A little pricey for an all-vinyl figure, but I commend HOP Toys for tackling a licensed Ro-Man!  I thought the Harryhausen Saucerman was just OK and lacking quite a bit in detail, but I am still excited to see them attempting characters from these 50's fan favorites.  Maybe it'll put a spark out there for someone to produce these characters in 1/9 or 1/6th scale articulated figures!

We have been around $10,000 for a couple of days. Really hope we make it.
