Support Cryptozoology Action Figures through Kickstarter
You know who is represented frequently in the area of high-quality action figures? Superheroes and movie monsters. You know who isn't? The creatures of cryptozoology. Thankfully, toy and video game designer Richard T. Broadwater plans to do something about that.
Broadwater is using Kickstarter to fund a new line of action figures called "Legendary Monsters". According to the Kickstarter page, "Legendary Monsters is a line of action figures based on monsters of urban legend and folklore. ... Each of the four monsters comes with an eyewitness figure, a diorama base depicting the surroundings and a written account of the real life eyewitness account right on the package! ... Each victim has 5-6 points of articulation and stands 3 and 3/4-4" tall. Each monster features 10-12 points of articulation and contains hinged arms, legs and ball jointed shoulders. Our figures will be crafted from the best materials and feature solid engineering and are fully posable."
Series 1 of Legendary Monsters figures includes the Jersey Devil, Mothman, the Missouri monster and the Chupacabra. If Series 1 meets its goal, Series 2 will include the Dover Demon, the Flattwoods Monster, the Yeti and the Loveland Frogmen. Future plans also include two deluxe sets, one featuring Bigfoot and the other featuring the Loch Ness Monster.
