I am looking to raise money to produce my concept in to soft vinyl form. I have been a fan of and collecting kaiju(monster) toys ever since I was a child. I was obsessed with Godzilla, Mothra, Ultraman, etc. I was always creating my own giant monster tales and putting them to paper. Fast forward to a couple of years ago when I was introduced to the world of designer toys and saw so many other people making their own creatures and turning them in to soft vinyl. This inspired me to develop my own character that I would later turn in to a resin toy and then in soft vinyl.
The following is the story of Eye Podd:
Eye Podd is a classic tale of Alien creates monster, monster comes to Earth, monster, befriends a man, man raises monster, monster protects Earth. Eye Podd was created by an evil alien that trolls the galaxy looking for planets to deplete of their resources, mainly gold, which powers his massive ship. This alien is know as The Accumulator. The Accumulator creates monsters that he will send down and embed in to the planet to one day hatch and start killing off all life on the planet. The Accumulator discovers a planet rich in resources, Earth. He notices how much intelligent life is on Earth and decides he needs the most powerful creature he has ever created to wipe the planet clean. He creates Eye Podd and sends him to Earth to purge it of life. Unknown to The Accumulator, Eye Podd lands on Earth in a remote forest in North America and is discovered by a hunter. Eye Podd was as small as a softball in his early stage of development. Eye Podd and the hunter instantly became friends. The Hunter a couple of years prior had lost his wife to sickness and his kids were grown up and long gone from their home. A companion was just what he needed in his life. The hunter raises Eye Podd over the next few years and Eye Podd grows larger and larger. He eventually grows to the size of a skyscraper. He is far too large to stay with his best friend the hunter, so Eye Podd decides to leave and explore the world. Eye Podd becomes instantly loved as he wanders the Earth, saving cats from being stuck in tall trees, ending wars, creating world peace, and stopping global warming. The Accumulator returns around this time to collect his spoils from Earth. Unfortunately, what he discovers is the opposite of what he wants. He sees life on Earth flourishing better than it was before. Accumulator is furios and decides he will do whatever it takes to wipe out life on Earth and Kill of the mighty Eye Podd. He immediately gets working in his lab on a new creature to do the job. That is where our story begins.....
I am creating a universe of characters that will all be a part of the world Eye Podd lives in. I will have future releases of monsters you can battle with your Eye Podd and coresponding comics books with each kaiju that will be released.
Each Eye Podd soft vinyl toy stands approximately 6.5” tall and 7.5” long with 3 points of articulation.
Production is being handled by Mad Monk(@madmonk1869). He has been instrumental in helping get the project off of the ground. Production has already begun and is well on it’s way.
