Survey for what Chibi come next
With all that said, Chris has been busy working with Lorraine (art) and the sculptors to bring the next Chibi project to life. While the overall theme was sci-fi, it broke into horror and space subgroups. Not surprisingly, ended up with two different miniature sets. Chris is a fan of HP Lovecraft’s work, and the whole Cthulhu Mythos. That’s one of the reasons that so many Mythos creatures made it into the Chibi Dungeon Adventurers Kickstarter (Cthulhu, Avatar of Yog-Sothoth, Avatar of Shub-Niggurath, Deep One). Those were the inspiration for the Gaslight Horror minis and they’re probably 80% of what we planned. The Type 1 figures are broken into heroes and monsters (see pictures for examples). The Type 2 figures are reserved for the Great Old Ones.
Finally, we created a small sub-set of space themed figures. There are really four base figures, and two that have alternate heads (helmeted, human). The Type 2 figures will be the same space mech body with 3 different weapon arm packs (short, long and energy). The mechs can also hold a Chibi driver from the Type 1 figures. The Space Chibi are similar in that they’ll maintain the same general sizing as our Asian figures (30mm Type 1, 50mm Type 2). We have additional art for more space figures as well. In an effort to make sure we structure the Kickstarter campaign in a way that creates the most interest and value for the backers, we are asking you to complete a very quick survey. This will allow us to rank which figure types (size/theme) are the most interest to the community. This will affect the starting figures, their numbers, and stretch goals so please vote (or Cthulhu will rise from the depths).
Rank 1 for the set you most want most and 5 for the set you would like to see least. The survey is here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3RP23CZ
Here are samples of art from Lorraine to show you the theme for each set in the survey. The images were scaled to show true size comparisons for what the figures should look like.
