About this project
WHAT IS HOTLINE MIAMI?
Hotline Miami is a high-octane action game overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gun play and skull crushing close combat. Set in an alternative 1989 Miami, you will assume the role of a mysterious antihero on a murderous rampage against the shady underworld at the behest of voices on your answering machine. Soon you'll find yourself struggling to get a grip of what is going on and why you are prone to these acts of violence.
Biker receives similar phone calls and incentives as Jacket, but things go awry when he tries to pull out of the group. After initially joining 50 Blessings out of boredom, Biker has no issues with killing mobsters, but wants out when he begins searching for the truth behind the hit group. Armed with a cleaver and throwing knives, Biker gets involved in a confrontation with Jacket, forcing Jacket to take him down or risk getting killed himself.
1/6 SCALE BIKER FIGURE DETAILS: The primary figure is 12" tall and comes with two removable heads: Biker helmet and unmasked Biker. The figure also comes with interchangeable clothing including one removable vest, removable jeans, and removable boots. Two weapons - a meat cleaver and a set of three throwing knives. A signature HOTLINE MIAMI doll stand is included for BIKER to be posed using the 15 points of articulation.
So far we've developed the BIKER 1/6 scale prototype which we're very excited about. We’ll be updating any confirmed tweaks and design changes through our project updates for this Kickstarter campaign.
Based on your feedback and demand on the previous HOTLINE MIAMI Kickstarter. We are bringing this project to you! This is another collaboration between ESC Toy, Dennaton Games, and Devolver Digital to create a collectible Hotline Miami figure without compromising their vision. We want the fans to be involved in this process again through Kickstarter. We've spent the last few months creating and revising the prototype you see here to create something the fans can love, but we need your help to let us know this is something the community wants and to help fund the production on a larger scale which will help keep the price reasonable for all. We’re really excited about this figure design, and we hope you share our enthusiasm so that we can make this project a success.
In addition to including yourself to receive receive a 1/6 scale Hotline Miami Biker figure, we've also set up some several rewards just for this Kickstarter. These are exclusive to the campaign.
Here's an updated list of stretch goals for our campaign! We'll update this list as the campaign progresses.

Risks and challenges
Every project may have obstacles but we at esctoy.com are very confident that we will deliver finished goods with quality and in a timely manner. Some possible challenges include unforeseen manufacturing or shipping delays. With a production of this size, sometimes customs clearance delays can be an issue as well. We're experienced in resolving these challenges and have done our best to plan ahead to keep us on the production/fulfillment schedule.
To offset these potential risks we will be shipping all physical goods based on backing order. First in, first shipped. Also, we will be regularly updating our campaign and are always reachable outside of Kickstarter via Twitter @esctoy or through our support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
