I love the designs but am not a huge fan of the sculpt.

Either way that special Maximillian Ca$h Fowler toy is niiiice!

Link to the kickstarter, I get a toy if you back apparently so that's nice.

this is an exciting project, but jan 2019 is so far away. Stoked for new Huck pieces though ( as well as most the others too)

The wait seems worth it. Ill be keeping my eyes on how many are backing to decide if I should pick up dupes instead of getting shipping to the UK.

There is just some solid designs from great artists. Just how I like my Vinyl.

This is a must buy for me. I'm struggling with whether I should buy a case or just a handful of them.

I have backed the 3 boxes but if the kickstarter is only moderately successful ill up that to a case or two.

My thinking is that if this is a smash hit I can buy some dupes on the cheap. If not I can get the case and sell off the dupes for a decent price.

It's a great lineup of artists and I love Paul, so I'll back this. That said, I'm not huge on the sculpt. I love how Dunny, Munny, Android, etc. are so minimal, because that lets the artist do just about anything with the figure. With Janky, it's going to be hard to get away from a fox or cat-like character.

But again, what a great lineup. I'm so happy that El Gran Chamaco is finally doing toys.

I'll sign up for the 3-pack and maybe the Fowler figure.

I like the artist and designs, I just dont really like the platform. I think its something about the skinny limbs

Kickstarter related, what ever happened to the dripple by sket one and mighty jaxx?

Dripple isn't happening. I'm not sure if MJ ever refunded backers... o_O

I'm hyped because of the hype around the toy. They've raised £200,000+ in a couple of days which is cool
and I love seeing a figure by Bubi Au Yeung.

Just not really feeling the base figure. To be fair even If I was probably wouldn't back it anyway.

It really is amazing to see how much this Kickstarter has blown up, and I love how they're engaging the whole community with their stretch goals. I can't wait to see what they cook up next.

I do agree the definition of the model may limit some of the artists to a more feline or foxlike character, but in someways those limitations may push the artists to innovate in more unique ways. While admittedly there are some designs I like more than others there isn't a figure in this set I wouldn't be happy with owning.
