The Lord of Beasts: King Liger Kickstarter has officially launched! Please help support my dream and lets make a toy together. Follow the link below to see and back the project. Please also spread the good word by any means possible. Thank you!
Here are all the stretch goal sprites: (from left to right) King Liger, Daikuma, David, Grackus, The Gruin, Magtut, Romanov, Rose Pierre, Shockrah, Dr. Silverado, M. Stangdaalyn, Twist Kid, and Honey Boy.
The Kickstarter is getting closer and closer to getting started. There have been some life events that have pushed it back such as having a child (a very welcomed, one mind you), but things are definitely ramping up for this spring to hopefully get things going. I'll be keeping you posed...
I had been racking my brain about what would be the best idea for a T-shirt reward would be. I didn't want to get too complicated, but I didn't want to be too simple. I then remembered The look that Shinsuke Nakamura has for his King of Strong Style design.
I know it's been parodied before, but enough so that it would be hopefully welcomed one more time.
So, here is what is planned for King Liger:
Let me know what you think...
People have been asking and I do have updates on the King Liger mold. So far, this is how the copper has attached. Everything looks pretty good, but I did noticed that there was a line forming across his left side that does concern me as I thought I got all of the mold lines cleaned off. Here's to hoping it's not an issue.
Here are some more sprites that I have been working on for Stretch goals. There is also an update on M. Stangdaalyn's sprite. I have now added Shockrah, Dr. Silverado, Daikuma, and Twist Kid. More to come...
Stretch goals are going to be a factor for future success of the King Liger series. I intend to make each one an opportunity to get tooling for another character funded for future production. The first one is going to be M. Stangdaayln, a man with scars... and a checkered past...
Here's a pic of the sculpt and a little sprite I made for the Kickstarter page:
I though it would be fun to do a little short with King Liger's prototype as a part of #wrestlingmovemonday from the Podcast, "How2Wrestling," featuring the lovely Kefin Mahon and Joanna Graham. I highly recommend listening to them on Sound Cloud and Itunes: https://soundcloud.com/how2wrestling
Project update: The rotocast mold is underway. I'll be posting pics hopefully soon. Meanwhile, enjoy!
I made a resin prototype of King Liger. This is not what the final version will look like and the articulation will be done a an actual joint not with magnets. I also included an over the top size comparison, but just something to remember is that Liger will be about 10% smaller, so that's why I have so many different figures in the pic. Let me know what you think. The kickstarter will hopefully be ready by the beginning of February. I will keep you posted.
