Capo Toys Series 1 Street Fighter action figures.
Okay everyone, here it is, a quick and dirty last ditch effort to get these 6 to 9 inch Street Fighter action figures funded through Kickstarter. For those of you who are new to this and wondering why Capo Toys would need funding to launch their award winning line up, there was a dispute among the partners and they tried to ax the artist/co-founder (that would be me). Here is a link to the public record: http://dockets.justia.com/docket/new-jersey/njdce/2:2014cv02518/302860
The long and the short of it, is that I continue to own my artwork and the company, you know amicably... but now I need your support to get these figures off the ground. Its toys, not rocket science, but it is expensive. Everything is in place in terms of the manufacturing, we just need your help to cross the finish line.
Below are the prototypes (Chun-Li and Blanka are awaiting paint approval):
Risks and challenges
There are always challenges with any worthy endeavor, in this case there are two main hurdles to overcome. One is timing, it is important to understand the variables in manufacturing and production as sometimes the smallest thing can tack on months if you don’t know what to look for. This can be the difference between 5 months or 9 months production time. It’s difficult to predict as there can often be hiccups that can set a schedule back. We will keep you up to date to ensure our backers have the latest info on the progress of the project. Secondly, with the costs of tooling, labor and materials steadily on the rise, creating highly articulated action figures like these is becoming harder and harder to make without substantial funding. Enter Kickstarter. This platform puts the power back into the hands of artists and the fans that love their work, this allows us to use the best factory, materials and offer more extras like alternate hands, heads, surge orbs and bases giving the collector an even richer experience knowing they were able to be part of this exciting process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
