WHAT IS A PLUNDERLING?
Plunderlings are a new concept of fantasy creature. A little bit goblin, a little bit pirate, united with infectious charm. These greedy adorable pirates travel from island to island looking for treasure and mischief. We're building a fully articulated figure that is versatile and able to sit comfortably next to your Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Master of the Universe, Figuarts, or Mythic Legions action figures!
We always wondered why fantasy had to be so limited to the typical settings of knights, forests and castles, we set out to break the mold. Our group of designers and animators have always wanted to see more fantasy concepts developed within the imagination of where we came from - the tropical environments and themes inspired from our home in the Caribbean. The Caribbean's beautiful landscapes, culture and history can be felt and seen in attire and tools on our goblins. It's our hope that in bringing these figures to your shelf, we bring a little bit of island living to you in a fresh, fun and imaginative way.
PICK YOUR PLUNDERLINGS!
The Plunderling action figure is 1/12 scale and without a hat will stand 3.8 inches tall with over 25 points of articulation. As of now we have 12 unique Plunderling figures already designed in 6 different themes. Each in a variety of colors, each including their own accessories, 3 different heads, a magnetic hat and two pairs of hands (relaxed and gripping).

BOXES N' CRATES!
We want every part of the Plunderling experience to be fun, even the boxes. Also in an effort to reduce our environmental impact we are looking into used recycled cardboard for our packaging.
MEET THE CREW!
The world of Plunderlings is developed Ricky Gluski, Alejandro Gluski and Andres Rodríguez with Lone Coconut, which is a creative, animation and visual effects studio based in the Dominican Republic. But we are first and foremost toy collectors and enthusiasts that for many years felt that we had an impish shaped hole in our collections. We loved many of the classic toy lines of the 80's and wanted to bring that sense of excitement, adventure and passion to the project. We have been collaborating with a number of industry veterans to bring this project to life - including Jason Bienvieu from Spero toys as a project advisor, Chris Gawrych who has worked with NECA and Four Horsemen Studios as our production coordinator. Our figures are designed by the talented Seba Dom, accessories by GD Lake and hats modeled by Fabiano Carlos, sculptor for McFarlane Toys.
In addition to all the designs and artwork at the moment we have already made several 3D printed hand-painted prototypes. All we are missing is your help to make the tooling blocks in order to mass produce the figures much more cheaply.
WHEN AND HOW?
We are excited to have you join us on our voyage to help bring the wonderful world of Plunderlings to life!
Risks and challenges
Though we are collaborating with professionals and people who have experience in Toy Manufacturing, this is our first large-scale toy production project, therefore we might experience delays in our production timeline or changes in our shipping price projections. Nevertheless, our team will work diligently to ensure the most seamless production cycle possible, and we are already prepared for many of the logistical challenges ahead.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
