This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, November 22 2018 5:00 AM UTC +00:00.
Do you remember the thrill of clipping proof-of-purchases from the back of a cereal box and mailing it in to await a very special action figure that would arrive in the mail? Maybe you got Han Solo in Stormtrooper Outfit or Kenner's clear Ambush Predator? Or even Sgt. Slaughter from Gi Joe?
I want to recreate this joy for you twelve times a year!
Action Figure collecting has become so dull & boring! Retailers are shuttering and all the surprises in the industry are broadcasted months ahead of time at trade shows or on social media. There is no sense of surprise in figure-buying anymore. This club changes all of that.
x12 four inch (4") poly-bagged limited-edition action figures sent once a month directly to you. We currently have 5 styles of figures (more on that below) and we can unlock another 10 figures that are in the pre-production stage. For every additional $15,000 (or so) we raise, we'll produce another new sculpt.
All of the figure will feature the Glyos© joint system- that means the parts pop off easily and can be swapped to create endless combinations. Change the limbs, heads, accessories all you want! Figures feature roughly 10 points of articulation and are incredibly sturdy.
NO! Subscription crates suck! They fill those boxes with a lot of cheap crap you don't need. Because their goal is new customer acquisition (not making good product), their production numbers are ever shifting and that's why you end up with a lot of junk that is easy & quick for them to manufacture. Our enrollment will lock at the end of the campaign and with definitive numbers we can plan our production ahead of time. No filler crap.
We're cutting out all the garbage and sending you the best part of a crate- the limited edition action figure. Our business is not constantly signing up new customers- it's making great toys!
The previous figures we've done under the Knights of the Slice banner have been super-limited and gone on to have massive secondary market value:
This is about bringing new people to the world of Knights of the Slice and the Glyos. Based on the past couple years of data (specifically on 4" action figure Kickstarter campaigns)we know there is a larger audience than we are currently reaching. We want to bring each and every person we can into the Glyos© system!
We've invested $20,000 into new production molds for 2019. We're asking you to help match my investment, so together we can accelerate our growth and make things even bigger & better.
So I won't know what figures I'm getting? Why should we trust you?
"Blind Drops" (where the customer doesn't know what they are getting) are our speciality. We've done four previous "All-In" sales, where customers spend over $150 for a box of unknown figures. It's been our single most successful item and always creates a huge buzz! I've never been asked for a refund and our customers seem to love the process. If you don't like surprises, this is not the campaign for you.
It's also worth noting this is our second Kickstarter campaign and the first campaign saw goods fulfilled on-time (a rarity for toy kickstarters).
Take it from some of our customers:
"I am a very budget conscious toy buyer and I have never been disappointed by the all-ins" - Aric from Iowa
"The benefit of the all in to date is it's one and done. It might look like a lot upfront, but when you consider shipping for each individual drop, there's a definite saving. You do go in blind, but after 4 All Ins, I'm confident in Toy Pizza's taste not letting me down. Recommended if you're on the fence." - Derek from Ohio
We have an archive of 13 fully sculpted 4" figures ready to go. It's simply a matter of capital & audience size that's prevent us from making more figures. Kickstarter can solve both problems. We have lots of great stretch goals planned, including new figures and additional accessories.
Note: These figures are considered Adult Collectibles and are not for children. For ages 18 years old+ only! Colors and styles may vary.

Risks and challenges
For the past four years we've manufactured 65+ different action figures and shipped over 2,500 packages to 20+ countries. We have two concurrent factories running to help mitigate any production delays that may occur. There is also a scaling plan in place should our volume exceed what can be handled in our current home-based fulfillment center.
That being said, delays always happen. It's our goal to begin fulfilling in Jan. to get a full calendar year. Production is often a battle of different variables going wrong, so we reserve the right to push the start of the club as needed and extend monthly fulfillment beyond 2019 as a contingency.
At Toy Pizza and Knights of the Slice our policy has always been to over-communicate so no customers or fans are in the dark. If there is a bump in the road, you'll be notified right away.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
