Hello, my name is John and I run Acolorfulmonster Toys. I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Kenth of Kenth Toy Works on an exciting new vinyl figure! The Zombitron!
This collaboration came about after some comments were exchanged via instagram about the possibility of collaborating, and how much we liked each other's work. With the help of our translator, Yoshi, we decided to work together on a vinyl figure. I drew up an initial concept sketch and sent it over to Kenth.
Instead of receiving an altered version of my sketch I was treated to this whole new creature jutting out from the other side of mine!
We decided that Kenth would sculpt our new monstrosity, and in no time at all the Zombitron was born!
The finished figure will be around 5.5 inches tall with 6 points of articulation.
We have the sculpt, Kenth has created the wax prototype, we have received a quote from a sofubi manufacturer... all we need now is the funding to pay the cost for metal molds and pouring the vinyl.
And so we are reaching out for help to get our project through its final stage and get some great vinyl figures out into the hands of those who share in our love of sofubi and hardcore toys! By funding this project you are not just helping to produce a toy, you are helping the both of us pursue our dreams of becoming full time toy artists and we thank you!
We have set a few reward levels which guarantee you a Zombitron figure in a variety of colors ways painted by myself or by Kenth as well as a blank option for you customizers out there!
Included in the one off reward level (see below) is a custom 9" x 12" ink illustration of the Zombitron done by John of Acolorfulmonster! (Picture is for a sample only, each illustration will be unique for each backer)
Thank you so much for looking and please spread the word!

Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge is staying on schedule with the manufacturer once this project is funded. We have completed every other step, the design is finalized, the wax has been made... if there is a set back with the manufacturer it will potentially push the release date back. Either way we are committed to getting the figures painted and shipped in the most timely manner possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
