Voodoo Monkey Toys and Shawn Dickinson - Close to the Bone
Welcome to Voodoo Monkey Toys, what started as a collaboration between J.Voodoo and Trick Monkey Studios to make a 3D version of the logo for Johnny Voodoos Barber Shop designed by Shawn Dickinson has now evolved into a small toy company based out of Australia. We plan on collaborating with amazing artists to bring you 3D versions of their art.
We present our first 3D Sculpt “Close to the Bone” a model kit based on the official logo for Johnny Voodoos Barber Shop designed by Shawn Dickinson. Shawn Dickinson has given this project his full backing and will be working with us on future designs.
This Kickstarter is to help us generate a Presale list, as we have already completed the digital sculpt and are now in the process of manufacturing the finished model kit. Voodoo Monkey Toys is made up of 2 people so manufacturing takes time, 30+ hours goes into printing each resin kit, then we must clean up each piece before packing, we are also having the bases laser cut out of treated Australian wood, so running this Kickstarter will help us determine how many kits to manufacture before we look at selling though other channels.
We will be capping our first edition at 100 kits all up and if we revisit this kit in the future for a second edition we’ll be changing the kit so each edition is unique but at this stage we have no plans on doing a second edition as we want to move onto other kits that we currently have in the works.
Once assembled the kit stands at 5.5 inches tall and is just over 6 inches around. It is made up of 20 pieces to be assembled and painted by you.
Each piece has been cleaned up after being printed but will require further sanding and cleaning to smooth out and imperfections from the printing process. Being resin it will need to be assembled with Super Glue.
We hope you enjoy what we are doing, please look through our Rewards and thanks for your support!
Risks and challenges
We have already got a 3D Resin Printer as well as the first 30 kits ready to go. The only risk that we can foresee is the delivery times. Each kit takes 30+ hours to print and prepare. We feel confident based on our current production rate that if all 100 sell we can reach the postage deadlines but if anything goes wrong with our printer it may lead to slightly later delivery dates. This is worst case scenario and even if it does happen everyone will still receive the kit they ordered but at a slightly later date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
