IN GAME VEHICLES STRETCH GOAL ANNOUNCED!
NEW REWARD UPDATE $15!
Several request have been made regarding a new reward tier just for the blue standard Penguin plush. Being that this is a limited campaign event, we've decided to create a new reward tier at $15 that's just for one blue standard STARBOUND Penguin that also includes the exclusive digital wallpaper. Please continue to send messages and comments. Your feedback is appreciated and thank you for your support.
My name is Erick Scarecrow with esctoy.com. I’m here to tell you about a new project I have in collaboration with Chucklefish called the Starbound Penguin Plush Project. Since 2005, ESC has been producing a lot of collectibles in the form of vinyl, resin, and of course, plush. Our involvement in this project is that we’ll be designing, producing, and handling the fulfillment of the production. There are several creatures in the Starbound universe that I really like. I really like the penguin creatures because of the dark, humorous personalities that they have. It’s something I’d really like to capture, and I hope this is something you guys will like as well.
Starbound is an extraterrestrial sandbox adventure game in which you take on the role of a character who’s just fled from their home planet, only to find themselves lost in space with a damaged ship. Their only option is to beam down to the planet below and begin gathering the resources they need to repair their ship and set off to explore the vast, infinite universe…
Use the starmap to travel between star systems, settle down and farm the land, build and colonize a modern metropolis or take on jobs and earn a living, and do all of it alone or with friends! With a near-infinite number of procedurally generated worlds to discover, Starbound allows players to create their own adventures in space.
In Starbound, penguins are sentient beings, living and working alongside the galaxy's other races. Despite their outwardly cute appearance, they are mischievous rogues who prefer the darker underbelly of society. Some penguins have achieved great renown as rogue scientists, black market dealers and even space pirates!
To help make this project happen, ESC & Chucklefish have set up some some special rewards just for this Kickstarter. These rewards include:
- REGULAR BLUE PENGUIN- $15
- EARLY BIRD PRICING TIER + EXCLUSIVE PIN SET (STANDARD BLUE ONLY)- $20
- REGULAR BLUE 6" PENGUIN TIER + EXCLUSIVE PIN SET + STEAM CODE- $30

- MASTER SET TIER (includes all penguins, signed 20 x 30 limited edition poster and one 18" STANDARD PENGUIN with accessories) + EXCLUSIVE PIN SETS + STEAM CODE- $2,000
In this campaign, you can easily increase your pledge to include additional Penguins. At any tier you can do the following:
- TO ADD AN EXTRA REGULAR BLUE PENGUIN- $15 (increase your pledge by $15 per Penguin. Limit up to 4pcs total.)

If we can get this project funded, ESC and myself will update with the production development for the Penguin plush. These updates would come direct from Kickstarter with details as we go from pre-production, production, shipping and the fulfillment stages.
Here's a list of our stretch goals for this project to show what extras and add-ons will be offered during this campaign.
Kickstarter allows ESC & Chucklefish to gauge community interest for STARBOUND merchandise. We both want the community to be involved in this process through Kickstarter. Your support and feedback is key to making this project a success so please spread the word about it.

Risks and challenges
Every project may have obstacles but we very confident that we will deliver finished quality goods 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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
