  Munchkin Bricks takes your favorite Munchkin card game weapons and iconic items and turns then into real-life stuff!

 They fit your favorite miniature figures like LEGO®, Kre-O®, Kubrick®, Character Building®, Si-Dan® and Friends®.

Be creative!  You can use them in all kind of fantastic ways such as custom game tokens or make your own Munchkin-themed custom jewelry!

These high-quality injection molded collectibles are fully licensed from Steve Jackson Games www.sjgames.com  and are ready to add fun to your gaming experience and brick characters.

 What do you get?

Together with the mad geniuses at Steve Jackson Games, we at CrazyBricks have spent the past year designing and creating miniature replicas from the Munchkin card game spanning almost all of the Munchkin themes including Munchkin Cthulhu, Munchkin Zombies, Munchkin Booty and expansion sets like Unnatural Axe and Munchkinomicon!

 

 

 

 

The base set of Munchkin Bricks consists of:

1. The Unnatural Axe -  Sculpted by Guest Designer Will Chapman from BrickArms!

2. The Rat on the Stick - Why? Because!

3. The Triple-Barreled Shotgun - From Munchkin Cthulhu. Three times the fun!

4. MUNCHKINOMICON! - From the Munchkinomicon expansion, a hinged, working copy of the arcane book containing dark secrets within!

5. Chibithulhu - From Munchkin Cthulhu - So CUTE!

6. The Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment - 'nuff said!

7. The Cute Shoulder Dragon - ( ok, it's really more of a FOREARM Dragon )

8. The Duck of DOOM! - Don't pick it up dummy!

9.  STRETCH GOAL #1 UNLOCKED!   -  Each set of Munchkin Bricks  gets a Miter! - (That's Latin-talk for a Cleric's hat)

10. STRETCH GOAL #3 UNLOCKED! - Each set of Munchkin Bricks comes with Spyke's Helmet! ( the pointy one! ) 

11. STRETCH GOAL #5 - Each set of Munchkin Bricks comes with a free Random Munchkin Bricks item! ( maybe a blue Axe or a Green Duck . . . who knows? It will be different and random for everyone )

12. STRETCH GOAL #6 - Each set of Munchkin Bricks comes with TWO free Random Munchkin Bricks items ( maybe a Gold Chibi or a Red Duck . . . who knows? It will be different and random for everyone )

13. STRETCH GOAL #5 - Each set of Munchkin Bricks comes with THREE free Random Munchkin Bricks items ( maybe a Red Munchkinomicon or a White Miter . . . who knows? It will be different and random for everyone )

Each set comes in one of four colors - Gun-Metal Grey, Brown, Green or Glow-In-the-Dark (plus any other color options that may get unlocked).

Currently, we've produced prototypes for the first eight items (these are the orange-colored pieces you may see in the photos). We will be adjusting and tweaking some of the details and refining the overall scale of the pieces for the Final versions. The Munchkinomicon has real working hinges and can be held open to reveal special mysteries!

As things are progressing we will be sharing with backers via frequent and entertaining project updates.

HOW DO YOU MAKE AWESOME STUFF LIKE THIS?   

A long process of digital sculpture in various CAD and art programs is done to create the initial art. Many weeks of refining and direction are used to find the perfect balance of aesthetics and engineering. Real-world prototypes are created from these digital art files and these are then evaluated to make sure they are going to fit the proportions and style of the figure. It takes a long time, but the nice part is that I have already completed this aspect of the project! What remains is to finance the expensive process of machining the steel injection mold tooling followed by the tuning of the production process to create the actual parts via injection molded plastic. This is the same high quality ABS material and colors used in popular brick products.

 

THE CRATE OF HOARDING!

BrickArms www.brickarms.com  is the #1 provider of custom weapons and parts for your favorite brick figures.

They have created these amazing minifig-scaled crates and as part of your pledge offering you can get one of these special custom-printed Munchkin Crates only available through Kickstarter.  The Pigs VS Cows Crate and SKULLS Crate have already become sought-after collectibles. 

 

 At CrazyBricks we love Kickstarter!  

What better way to reach the fans of our favorite card games and custom brick accessories and bring them all together!

Munchkin Bricks already exist ( we have the prototype set and we love them ) but we want YOU to have a set too!  It's an expensive and time-consuming process to design and create injection-mold tooling.  Your support will allow us to create these amazing collectibles!

We think they are fantastic and we know you will too!

And ... If we do well - perhaps a series #2?

Besides enabling you to sport a full set of dangerous, yet cute, weaponry we've also set up some special rewards just for this Kickstarter campaign.

We are offering exclusive tiers including chances for special custom-built vignettes and parts signed by Steve Jackson, John Kovalic and Munchkin Bricks creator, Guy Himber!

Risks and challenges

This will be our third Kickstarter project and we have mastered our manufacturing and fulfillment systems. The unpredictable factors, as usual, are possible shipping or manufacturing delays from our manufacturer or any unpredictable shipping issues.
The Munchkin® card(s) are subject to manufacturing schedules beyond our control and we may have to stall shipping fulfillment to allow for printing schedules.
As an option, a secondary shipping choice may be created to allow for rewards to arrive ahead of the Munchkin card availability.
We will be regularly updating our campaign information and are always reachable via our customer support at :

FAQ

  • Good Question! In Brick terms it has a footprint of 2 x 6 studs and is about 3 studs tall. In inches it measures about 5/8" x 1 7/8" x 7/8" tall with the lid attached. I'll post a picture with a crate next to a figure so you can better get a feel for the size.

  • Your classic LEGO brand miniature figure doesn't have a very good set of shoulders to re-enact the classic MUNCHKIN Cute Shoulder Dragon card ( where the dragon is sitting on the character's shoulder like a proper D&D familiar ). As a practical matter, I thought it best to move the dragon down to the forearm ( the RIGHT forearm ) and not only let it rest there like an trained raptor, but to also allow the use of the figure's hand too! So you could mount the dragon AND hold a staff or ??. The dragon attaches by removing the hand of the figure, placing the dragon and then popping the hand back in. It works great on the Si-DAN miniature figures too. I am refining the design so that it might also integrate with the classic 1/8" rod that is common to our favorite bricks. More on this later.

  • Each SET you pledge comes in a single color. You may choose which color you like from the available color choices. For instance, if you pledge DOUBLE MUNCHKIN then you can make set #1 one color ( currently Green, Brown, Gunmetal or Glow in the Dark) and set #2 can be a different color ( see choices above ). Both of your sets could be the SAME color.

    If you order 10 sets, then EACH of you sets can be a color of your choosing ( i.e. 5 in Green, 2 in Glow in the Dark, 2 Brown and the balance in Gunmetal ).

    EACH set of Munchkin Bricks comes with the Exclusive Munchkin Game Card. For instance the DOUBLE MUNCHKIN tier (TWO sets), comes with TWO Munchkin Cards. Great for gifting to your Munchkin lovin' friends!
