Sunshine Figures has created a project for collectors and painters
We hope you enjoy this new product and look forward to it being a huge success.
4 collections of detailed busts in 1:10 scale to provide a great painting experience for all levels of painters.
The busts will be produce in high quality resin in our workshop in US Florida. The quality in our finishes is our number one goal.
The good new for all our backers is that the models are already fully designed, sculpted. This will cut down greatly the production waiting times, if we reach our goals.
Eddy Dupont is the director of this project. He lives in The United States (Florida) since two years. Previously he worked in Europe where he was the official dealer in Belgium for the biggest marks of scale models and resin model kits. He was the owner of a specialized shop. He has also an experience in figures painting. He won a lot of awards in different contests in Belgium and France between 1998 and 2003. He has collaborated in mold training for employees of public and private institutions. He has 10 years of experience in molding and resin casting in producing figure model kits.
To start the Sunshine Figures project Eddy recruited 4 experienced sculptors motivated by the idea of launching a new brand of resin figures in the USA. 4 sculptors with different styles to create the first 4 collections for the Kickstarter’s campaign. The theme is girl’s busts.
The amount raised with this Kickstarter campaign will be fully utilized to achieve the goals set by Sunshine Figures.
The Kickstarter’s goals:
1- Produce the busts presented in this Kickstarter. Respect the manufacturing and delivery deadlines.
2- Measure the interest for these products.
3- Guide the production of new models.
1- Open the online shop
2- Produce new models (busts and full figures – male and female – sceneries) with the collaboration of the sculptor’s team but also with invited sculptors.
3- Provide a complete 3D printing and production service in his workshop based in South East Florida.
4- Sale paints and tools in our online shop
5- Open an online shop in Europe to facilitate the sell to the European’s customers (low shipping prices and no add fees)
All our products require assembly and paint.
The inauguration of the range will include busts and bases that will be part of our catalog in the future.
But to reward our backers we will have 3 that will be EXCLUSIVE for this campaign and will never be produced again.
You can choose any of our busts or even all of them !! And you can receive free gifts throughout the campaign if we meet the goals set.
For example FREE bust and FREE Bases !!!
Shipping costs will be applied once the Kickstarter is over so as to allow us to calculate the exact costs when taking into account all the unlocked stretch goals and optional purchases.
When our kickstarter is over we will use a pledge manager. This platform is a secured place for us and especially for you. You can access as backers to all the options and know at any time the status of your pledge. This will take few weeks after the end of the KS campaign.
We will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends. This is so we can be fair to all our backers as shipping is rarely one size fits all, and also give you more stretch goodies and possibly a choice of carrier options.
Estimate shipping cost:
USA: $10 - $20* to most states.
EUROPE and UK: $10 - $35* to most countries.
For all other parts of the world, it is a lot harder for us to get a precise estimation but don't hesitate to send us an e-mail to tell us your pledge, the total of busts you want to buy, your address and you will receive a correct shipping price estimation. We will always look for the best price with the possibility of sending from Europe when it is more interesting.
- $30 to $50* to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico
- Canada : $25 - $50*
- South America : $30 to $80*
- New Zealand : $30 to $90*
- Australia : $20 to $80*
- South Africa : $40 to $100*
- Japan : $30 to $55*
- China : $30 to $80*
- Taiwan : $30 to $60*
* The maximum estimation prices are for all Busts with all Bases, all Stretch Goals Busts and Bases and all Gifts in the package.
The estimated delivery date is December 2018, but please keep in mind that this is an informed guess. Also note that some backers may receive their pledge rewards before others.
Risks and challenges
This is our first Kickstarter, we are not afraid to say it.
We have planned all possible scenarios.
With your pledges you will help to launch a new business. A new brand of model Kits in US. The Quality of our products is our priority.
Our biggest risks are:
• Unexpected successful campaign
• Additional work related to the stretch goals.
• Shipping delays.
We have set a production schedule and costs for various scenarios of the Kickstarter campaign, from a simple success to "beat all the records”, however it is impossible to predict how many of our stretch goals will be funded. Work has started on some and we do not expect the early stretch goals to affect the delivery deadline.
However, a large list of stretch goals will generate extra work that may take some extra time to complete.
