About this project
I am SOOO happy to welcome you to the PIgs vs Cows project!
This year's theme for BrickCon 2013 - the greatest LEGO fan event in the world - is going to be Pigs vs. Cows!
Visit BrickCon here: http://brickcon.org/ to find out more about this fantastic Convention.
Wild, crazy, wacky and fun what could make it an even better theme?
How about professionally crafted, and beautifully produced custom Pig and Cow character heads for your Miniature Figures? That's what I have created for you!
ADD ON MENU IS HERE!
See FAQ below for details on how to add these items to your pledge!
EVERY theme will be Cow-ified and Swinerized this year!
Oh yes............... details are coming for this little fellow below.
Pigs in SPACE, Ham Solo and Lando Cowrissian, Battle Pigs and Battle Cows, Sir Swinington and Lord Udders the possibilities are endless and I can't wait to see what you clever LEGO fans can come up with!
To make this all happen, a large number of concept art drawings were created to imagine the designs from. Although a number of great concepts were explored, the best balance of scale, moldabiltiy and character had to be addressed and optimized.
Once the design choices were made, professional digital models were commissioned to bring the Pigs and Cows to life. Long story short, they turned out FANTASTIC!
ABOVE you see the finished digital models used for 'growing' the prototype heads via 3D printer technology.
The base set of Pigs vs Cows heads includes (8) pieces.
(2) Pig Heads basic - (1) Standard (1) Helmet Scale
(2) Pig Battle heads - (1) Standard (1) Helmet Scale
(2) Cow Heads basic - (1) Standard (1) Helmet Scale
(2) Cow Battle heads - (1) Standard (1) Helmet Scale
(1) CAT WARRIOR!
(1) ZOMBIE PIG!
(1) ZOMBIE COW!
(1) Random Head! ( a extra random Cow or Pig head )
(1) ANOTHER Random Head ( Xtra random Cow or Pig head )
(1) EVEN Another Random Head! ( for a total of THREE per set )
AND - Each pledge gets a special Pigs vs Cows AND A V&A Steamworks STUDS collectable trading card!
Any stretch goals achieved will add to this base set of heads.
Sets will be injection molded in one of THREE basic colors. Flesh, Brown and (probably) Light Grey. For each set pledged you can choose a color. Since the heads are run in complete batches, all the colors in a given run will be the same - Hence, no mixing and matching of color choices. Although if you have pledged for multiple sets, you may choose a particular color for each set/group pledged for.
Some ADD ON items , such as additional Cat Warriors or Zombies, are available in either color ( Brown or Grey ) and you will be able to choose whichever color you prefer.
CAN I CHOOSE SPECIFIC HEADS?
Sets all come with the same heads ( in the same color ) , BUT the ADD ON heads are yours to add as you please, in whatever color they are offered, and as many as you like!
WILL THE HEADS INCLUDE PRINTED DETAILS?
To keep down costs and encourage customization, no plans are presently being made for printing on the heads
WHY ARE THE HEADS COMING IN TWO DIFFERENT SCALES?
I have found that the Standard heads are perfect for some applications while the 'Helmet' scale heads are better for others. Rather than restrict your choices, you get two different scales to work with. The variations look great next to one another and , MOST IMPORTANTLY, one of them fits in a space helmet!
WHAT DO THESE KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE COW-SPOT BRICKARMS CRATE LOOK LIKE?
They are BEAUTIFUL! - Only available to supporters of the Pigs vs Cows Kickstarter campaign!
NEW STRETCH GOALS ADDED!
For each $1,000 we reach beyond $13,500 I will include a free random head PER SET! Just my way to say 'thanks' and SURPRISE!
NOTE : Due to shipping weight issues - I will be capping off the BONUS Free heads at (3) per set! DARN YOU POSTMAN!
ZOMBIES ARE NOW UNLOCKED!
I am truly looking forward to bringing all of these very limited and amazing characters to life for you!
Thanks for your support!
PIGS vs. COWS!
Risks and challenges
The greatest risk is that we don't get the heads produced in time for proliferation at BrickCon in Seattle this year.
The injection molding vendor I am using has done a number of Kickstarter based projects in the past, and has proven to be reliable and realistic in their manufacturing expectations. We will fall well within the needed date to get Pigs and Cows in everyone's hands!
The last challenge will be to get all of the digital artwork completed in a timely fashion. We already have the archetype pigs and cows completed, so it will be any stretch goal items that would need to get fast-tracked to make everything happen on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
