The Dopey Robots Toy & Weapons Company presents: The Dopey Robots Coloring Book And Toy Catalog!
Presenting 37 character bios and drawings of soon-to-be classic characters who would make great toys and subjects of TV shows and movies to promote such toys!
It's in the style of 80's shape changing robot toy lines I grew up with, drawings of very silly looking robots and their backstories describing their skills and how those abilities might interfere with their day to day lives. It is also has a story frame about a lonely action figure character who was supposed to be marketed as a two-pack. Who will you choose to be its friend?
The bios are over the top, the robot characters are ridiculous, and The Dopey Robots Toy & Weapons Company might be going out of business by the end of the book. But the densely packed 20 magazine size pages (10.5" x 8") is a fun coloring activity for the whole family.
The basic reward package includes the coloring book, a cardstock sheet of 5 paper dolls you can cut out and use with other action figures (or board games), a button, and a sticker.
Other rewards include original art, a t-shirt, and a bonus book equally ridiculous if not moreso: Princess Robo, a 20 page mini of robotic princesses.
The goal for the proceeds generated from this Kickstarter is to produce more copies for comic shows I attend and comic stores to carry on their shelves.
UPDATE! We passed our goal in a little over a week! So, stretch goals! Some of the rewards for $10 and higher donations will include but not limited to:
-$1600.00 - We will add a 2nd sheet and possible 3rd sheet of paper dolls drawn by other artists. We will share that list once it's confirmed.
-$1800.00 - The sticker will now be a full sticker sheet, 8in x 10in of different drawings & designs!
Risks and challenges
The book is finished: I have tested the layout with a few promo copies. I have 20-something years in shipping books, including comics, so I'm pretty handy when it comes around to that. Every element of my reward tier is something that I've made and sent out before in some capacity.
The completion date is for October, but I will be shooting to have these out by the end of September.
I'm trying to keep all shipping prices reasonable. Everything will be shipped in a rigid envelope or box, going out as a first class package to protect the items (which is why it's more than the usual first class price - you'll get tracking though!).
International shipping is tricky, as these are also going to be first class packages. I will not be offering the t-shirt reward or family packs for international, sorry.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
