in the darkest of the deep depths lies the Lurk. It is dark but clear, cold but habitable and a swell of life begins where land ends. The Gorgangrackles eat the Anglerfin. The Anglerfin eat the Chumtails. The Chumtails eat the Trollsharks. The Trollsharks...well they eat each other. Between the moistened mountains of Bluff and Butte sprawl the villages of the Nautilus, a peculiar race of tentacle-bearded nature-lovers. The villages are said to reside on top of a rare mineral deposit of UnderAether.


Brighton “The Bareknuckle” scraped algae from between his bone white knuckles as he watched the behemoth steamships approach from above. “Uur al bak Nakrak” he slurred through his tentacles. Which we all know is Naut for “Just as the tide flows so will Topsider blood.” 


He hoisted a Razorfin carcass over his shoulder as he headed back towards the village. It is said that his right hook could tame even the most wild of Razorfin. As he approached he could see a flurry of tumultuous bubbles rising from the village. He stopped in his tracks. He knew he was being followed. Slowly turning 90 degrees starboard he locked eyes with none other than “The Hammertoe.”
Geoffrey Helmsworth is known for his wit and his trademark Rivetry. His rivets are known by every Cog and it’s said he can recall each by name. His sidearm, known as the “Ringing Bell” was aimed between Brighton’s necklace and his paint covered tentacles. The two sized each other up. Geoffrey cocked his double barrel. Brighton cracked his knuckles. The rivalry had begun.

Rivals is a steampunk designer toy. Each figure measures 4 inches tall.

Geoffrey "The Hammertoe" Helmsworth

Known for his wit and his trademark Rivetry.

Brighton "The Bareknuckle"

 It is said that his right hook could tame even the most wild of Razorfin.

These new Characters have been sculpted by Enrico Botta a super talented toy sculptor who has sculpted and designed for McFarlane Toys, Beatrice Designs, Disney, Henson, and more. So as you can see we are excited about it.

These puppies are going to be manufactured by an awesome group called Patch Together. Patch Together makes amazing toys and here are some examples.

The idea of RIVALS came from the minds of two very beardly designers, James Hugo & Chase Layman. Together they own Wheelhouse, a graphic design studio in Edmond, OK. 

James and Chase have always had a love for Toys, Steampunk & anything Nautical. It was just a matter of time before they realized they could combine them.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk comes with keeping deadlines on schedule. Like any big project, their needs to be areas where if minor issues occur, we are able to have a time frame to fix an issue. We have put a lot of effort into designing great characters that we want to make sure are perfect. So in order to do this we may need to go back and forth with our manufacturers to make sure the product we produce is up to our standards of excellence. We will definitely keep everyone updated as to production process and how everything is progressing. This also goes for any stretch goal products that are created from going past our goal. We want to make sure every piece is great quality and shipped out as soon as possible.
