  1. Also makes me think of the Gorm from Kingdom Death.
  2. Fulfilling

    My wife commented that I was acting like a kid at Christmas playing with the toys as I pulled them out of the box. That froghemoth is *huge*...
  3. Delayed

    Who doesn't want a golf-ball sized Eye of the Deep figure? It is going to terrify adventurers above or below the waves, and all we need is a burst of last minute backers to show and unlock the stretch goal so we aren't waiting till the *next* project to be able to get it.
  4. Delayed

    I've been very happy with his earlier Firbolg Skeleton, Peryton, and Massive Tentacle (which served me as the guardian of an extra-dimensional portal just a couple of weeks ago). So I'm really hoping this one reaches funding and drills into some stretch goals.
  5. Completed

    Ugh. I originally planned to grab the Smith one but ended up getting others instead.
  6. Cancelled

    It makes me think more arctic or undead myself. I'd love to pledge for both but I think I'd side with basic version as I find the color differences between the skin / horns / plating to be more visually striking... Ugh decisions are hard. I really hope this critter passes the unlock threshold this time.

    Considering how many of their exclusives are media character likenesses, would those even be possible in retail? Even if they could regularly win cases for parody or fair use I'd imagine lawyers from deeper pocket companies would have a field day harassing them for figures like "Xuxa" if it was an ongoing store release. If you exclude the infringy stuff that just wouldn't exist otherwise, things look less excessive.

    I think the base pledge looks like an okay deal purely for the minis, and it should improve, so I'm backing for just that for the forseeable future. I'd only consider the elementals if they were sold as individuals since for two of them (fire and earth) I find the designs to be extremely meh, and I'm not dropping $40 just to get the two I would actually want. Personally I'd like to see more game accessory or terrain addons / stretch goals. For example I love the dice tower that came with Z:BP and the chests and pillars in MD are probably what put me over the top on deciding to back it.
  9. Completed

    Mine all came yesterday. Treant has no issues. The Napolean halfling got used by one of the members of my gaming group that evening. :)
  10. Completed

    Personally I'm most curious about how the female warrior with the armored hoopskirt came out, since I think it was provoked by my suggestion (based on my Neverwinter MMO main char).
  11. Funded

    Goggle wearing primates with patagia and guns. Reminds me of something from long ago. :) And gun-toting amoebas and centaur insectoids are stretch goals, naturally... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/9742092/project-simian-x His other two projects closed okay right?

    Were clear records on which sculptor's were and were not paid kept? It would be interesting to see a list of which IP is left in question. Also, are some of the assets to allegedly be sold linked to the work of unpaid sculptors? At one point in the ToH campaigns pictures of figures in bins (i.e. a lot of froghemoths bits, and I think that was an unpaid sculpt) were shown. So do you plan to, and can you legally, sell figures for IP you don't own as of yet or would you have to sort out those rights first?
  13. And if I'm not mistaken, that is just the 2006 release of the game (which you get get for about $30 on Amazon) that they are throwing in for $50 more then the level you get a pin and a download link to the pitch video. Add another $50 for $175 total and you get a baseball cap and two pins... Even the $25 "You get to watch our blog!" pledge is sort of hair raising. Comparatively, the Reading Rainbow kickstarter gifts (like the $30 shirt) were certainly bought at a premium, but not so much that I felt that LeVar was ripping me off. And that was for directly spreading a good cause, not just to make a trailer to shop around to studios.
  14. As I had to back out of the last version thanks to temp finances, I'm sort of happy about the postponement. Also as my favorite rider will apparently be the initial goal now, I can't complain about that either.
