Imagine relaxing on the beach and suddenly seeing a huge creature emerging from the ocean.. Could it be Godzilla?? As it bursts through the surface you recognize a familiar image - a sesame seed bun!! The "Mini Cheestroyer" has arrived and here's your chance to bring him to life in the form of a wonderful Glow in the Dark soft vinyl toy measuring 4.5 inches tall with articulated head and waist joints!
This is a chance to realize a lifelong dream for the both of us, a true kickstarter - to have our very own toy professionally produced by a professional toy factory. By reaching our pledge goal we will be enabled to reproduce the Mini-Cheestroyer in various colours and effects in the future thanks to having reusable cast iron molds available to us. This will allow us to build the independent toy culture scene in Australia by running events like custom art shows where people can decorate their very own Cheestroyer toys and inviting young artists to paint their own designs on the Cheestroyer blank toys. We have some BIG plans for this toy, we just need a little help from you to get things moving... We have some great items up for grabs in exchange for your support! Please read on..
Designed by Bad Teeth Comics and sculpted by Double Haunt, this very special 'mini' Cheestroyer is a much cuter version of the legendary cheeseburger monster but be warned, the mini Cheestroyer could start rampaging amongst your other toys if the mood strikes him!
Here's a full turnaround of Double Haunt's original sculpt for the Mini Cheestroyer. You will find smooth articulation points for the head, waist and burger shell joints. We have future plans for variant heads and shells/accessories that can be added to vinyl versions of this toy. Below you can see images of the handmade resin edition of the Cheestroyer. He is quite a handful!!
This isn't the kind of toy that you'll find in the aisles of Target or Walmart. If you're new to the designer/indie toy scene then this is a great way to start your collection (be warned, collecting indie toys can be extremely addictive!!). These toys are designed by artists outside of the big corporations, featuring characters full of imagination and personality!
They are also made from high quality materials due to having smaller production runs. The great thing about producing toys in vinyl is that it is a cheaper alternative to resin, is lightweight so it's cheaper to ship to you, it's flexible but can also withstand a lifetime of play. The Mini-Cheestroyer will be hand-crafted in a small toy factory overseas and assembled/packaged up by it's creators Bad Teeth & Double Haunt here in Brisbane.
Here's a closer look at one of our handmade resin toys so that you can see the details and features of the Mini Cheestroyer!
Now that you've met the Mini-Cheestroyer, take a look at some of our featured pledge offers (including a sneak peek inside Cheestroyer #1 comic book!!):
International postage details can be found on the pledge list to your right. Australian Post cost for Australian supporters is included in the pledge amount. Make sure you check out the other pledges as there are some ultra-cool items available including Double Haunt sketch cards, clear vinyl Mini Cheestroyers and X-Ray Mini Cheestroyer toys!!! If we can beat our pledge goal of $5500, we will also be offering some super special items for stretch pledge goals before the crowdfunding campaign ends!
Producing high quality Glow in the Dark vinyl toys isn't cheap.. You need to send an original copy of the sculpt overseas to be recast in wax, refined & have a strong iron mold produced to pour the liquid vinyl into. As the Cheestroyer has 4 separate parts, we need to pay for the production of 4 molds. We also need to pay for production of the toys themselves, packaging, shipping the toys back to us here in Australia from the factory overseas to bring you a toy that we are proud to call our own & share with you!
$5500 is the smallest amount needed to enable us to get Mini-Cheestroyer toys made professionally. If we are lucky enough to exceed this goal we will be able to produce some extra cool add-ons for you!
Bad Teeth Comics & Double Haunt are both based in Brisbane, Australia. You can see some of our other work at the following links:

Risks and challenges
The mini Cheestroyer vinyl will be produced by one of the leading vinyl toy production companies in the world and the high quality of their work has been confirmed in person by Bad Teeth & Double Haunt. We want to make the best toy we possibly can so we have aligned ourselves with Unbox Industries, a company that has a strong reputation to minimize risk for ourselves and to ensure that you get a high quality toy.
As with all projects, delays are possible however we are partnering with an established designer toy production company to help eliminate the potential risks. In the odd chance that anything was to pop up, you, the backers will be the first to know! We will have updates on our blogs regarding the toys during this time whenever we receive new information from the factory.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
