Dead Kozik (yes Kozik) Bust on Kickstarter...

Post by kom22 » Mon Mar 11, 2013 7:33 pm

I'm not on as often as I used to be, but figured I'd share this with everyone cause it's a cool project and needs backers. I'm not involved, other than already buying a GID bust, but check it out. Chip in if you want one, and let's get this thing made!

still thinking about this. Would definitely go for it if I knew the GID was going to be like the Reagan/Clockwork, but if the GID material is like the Che, no thanks. Also, does anyone know if the sunglasses are removable?

so I just got an PM about these questions and this was my response

Thanks for the heads up. I'll discuss this with DKE Toys and the factory. I'll make sure I avoid what was used for the che. As for the glasses, it's fixed. A permanent part of the bust. It's how I was intending it to be but I can do a survey and find out from the community if as a group you all prefer glasses that come off like the gipper. However, that would require a higher quote from the factory I'm sure. But if we raise enough and that's what the community wants, I'd be up for making some modifications to the bust.

I might as well start floating this out there...

if the 2 colorways sell out before the 30 days is up, I might add a third colorway

it won't be something that people will be able to swap with their combo, for instance, "I'd rather have color X over the red or tyhe GID, can I swap out the new colorway?"

it would just be a single reward to offer those who hadn't had a chance to purchase a bust or those who would want yet another color

You would however be able to change your reward from a single GID or red to the new color, in fact you're always able to adjust your pledge but I would hope that anyone getting a combo would not decide to get the new single colorway over the combo

at any rate, to my question
IF I was to add a colorway, what would be a popular color that people would like to see. It can't be white or the dark grey as those have plans for them already

would love to hear your feedback

Pink seems to be a prized color. I always thought the teal big army man was a sick color for a bust too.

I don't know. I was thinking I might add another colorway if the two current one got close to selling out, but there's still 15 of the reds and 10 of the GIDs. I suppose that's not too many remaining. If I add another colorway I fear that some people might jump ship on their existing pledge and the shuffling may cause problems. I might not end up creating new pledges but just make it so I have three colorways that sold poorly. I'll think about it. I do need to do something to get this over the hump and that might do it.

thanks for the feedback

I got in on this and got a red to go with my extensive REDRUM collection. I can'y wait to get it at some point in the future. The first time I saw the original and said I need one. So now I will have one. So happy.

So what's the word on the Kickstarter release? I went in on the release with my roommates girlfriend (at the time SMH) and she is being somewhat helpful on fulfilling her end of the bargain. What I'm really asking is has anyone (assuming some of you help fund) received they're kickstarter busts? I ask because SubUrban Vinyl has an exclusive green now available for purchase.

If you wanna know we did the $300 option. 1 Red/1 GID. I get the red.

I just posted an update on kickstarter about this.

All the busts arrived yesterday in LA and are at the DKE Toys warehouse. All the KS exclusives will be shipping out this week to the backers. You should be receiving your busts within two weeks if your domestic. AS for the SubUrban Vinyl bust, yes, they have an exclusive bust and they just put it up for sale today. As I say in my update, I would have liked to wait a bit before allowing the busts to become retail but due to a few factors this was not the best option. Mostly the choice came down to logistics of warehousing a very big product and the timing of the holiday shopping season. I understand that this is not ideal and I apologize to you guys.

Please don't think I forgot about you guys. It's been tough working with people over in Hong Kong and I try to give you as much info as I can. I try not to speculate and make promises until I know for certain things are happening. For that reason you guys were in the dark nearly as much as me. It's been a learning experience :-)

Thanks for being patient.

Got my GID in the mail today. It's awesome. It's the good quality GID too, which is nice. Glows like crazy.

If you didn't get in on this when it first came out, support Kevin and buy one of the other colors available. Quality and design are top notch!

Right on!

Thanks much for the kind words.

Yeah, was generally happy with the results. It's a big big so the shipping sucks :oops: , but once it's arrived, damn, it has quite the presence. And yeah, was super happy with how this guy glows, holy moley, gonna have fun next halloween. My 3 year old asks me every evening to turn Kozik on. So I charge him and she loves it.

As for the other colorways, right now we have green with Suburban Vinyl and Orange at Frank Kozik's site. Bronze is out there though no idea when 3DRetro plans to release it. Guess it'll be a surprise. And a new colorway will be released around the end of the month/beginning of the new month. Keeps your eyes peeled for the original charcoal grey. If you have interest in it, tell your local store to contact DKE.

So glad everyone has at least got their GIDs now. The red's are coming soon. I believe the ship arrives this week. Will tell you more when I know more.
