Please help us to fund the production of these six new Njorn Character figures. The sculpting for these figures isdone, the resin mastering for these figures is also done, All that is left to do now is to produce the spin cast molds that will be used to cast the the metal copies and to then cast those copies in sufficient quantity to satisfy demand, this process usually only requires about a month to complete. However given the MASSIVE workloads on the very few contract casting services in the US means now that delays in production are very likely and can also be very lengthy.
In an effort to avoid any lengthy delays and I am going to keep this kickstarter campaign very limited in scope. This way there is far less likelihood of problems in production. All of these figures are cast in a single piece and will be cast in high quality lead free white metal and will be supplied with a 25 mm round plastic base.
You are free to buy as many copies as you like of any one of the figures listed for funding in this campaign. For each figure added to your existing pledge of $8 you must add $8.00 per figure up to 4 ( 5 figures total )for each figure added to your existing pledge of $42.00 you need only add $7.00. ( 6 figures or more. ) The RRP of each figure post KS campaign will be $8.99
Your pledge value will not be applied to the shipping cost of your package. Shipping will be paid separately via paypal, amazon payments, or check or money order upon such time as your package is ready to be shipped. You will be notified of prepared shipment via a Kickstarter update or personal message.
You must pay the postage costs before your rewards can be shipped.
Shipping costs vary by weight and destination but I will always choose the cheapest option available to get your package to you.
There is a postage increase coming in January on the 23rd. I do nto yet know how much the postage cost will increase but right now the average cost per package is listed below. Please remember that this is an estimate and not a quote of the actual price it could be more or it could be less:
1-6 figures domestic ...........$4.00
1-6 figures Europe / UK...... $8.50
1-6 figures Australia.......... $10.00
Risks and challenges
I have had some troubles in the past. It is no secret that my first kickstarter has been a disaster for my business. As of the launch of this campaign it is still as yet incomplete. Of the 769 pledges backing that campaign, I have shipped 579 rewards packages. I am currently only awaiting delivery of product from this production contractor to be able to finish fulfilling this kickstarter.
My second Kickstarter has had it's share of minor hiccups and had taken longer than expected to deliver but is now proceeding forward smoothly. The issues in that campaign have been the workload of initial sculpting, and delays in production for reasons stated above ( existing work load for the production partners ) and for a few issues with cross compatibility in the modular kit figures ). As of the launch of this kickstarter I have shipped 179 rewards packages of the 259 pledges backing that campaign. Of those packages yet to ship for that campaign most of them await the delivery of only a small few items, and any backer is able to have a partial shipment of any rewards currently in hand at anytime they so choose. Further as of the launch of this Kickstarter the production of the rewards for the second kickstarter campaign is nearing full completion. Upon delivery of that product the final phase of fulfillment for that kickstarter will commence.
The challenge is of course to handle all of the communications necessary to make this project go as smoothly as possible for everyone involved. I have quite a bit of experience with that so I do not foresee it being more than I can handle. then the second challenge is just managing the product through the chain of production and delivery. The production is out of my hands ( unfortunately ) but I AM working with a very reliable and well established production partner who has proven themselves time and again with previous projects I have hired them for.
Finally, risk......well short of a meteor strike I cannot imagine any real risk. The figures are made, they are ready to go into full production and the funding goal set will cover all costs involved. This project will deliver in short order and to your satisfaction.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
