RIVALS is a Quirky, Limited Edition Steampunk Vinyl Toy line. The COG and the NAUTILUS battle for control under the sea. Which are you? Choose your faction.

THE TOY PROTOTYPES - 4 inch figures

THE STORY

Welcome to the Lurk, the deepest of the deep seas. Altercations between the different races have been a problem for a hundred years. The people of The Cog, a race of steam-powered divers, have been trying to push their way in for nearly a century searching for the mineral resources to keep their civilization steaming along. The territory they desire is that of The Nautilus a race living in harmony with its surroundings...and they hate company.

THE COG - Theodore P. Stevedore

THE NAUTILUS - Algernon ChiffChaff

WHO ARE WE?

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. So after much....much "storming of the brains" RIVALS was born!

HOW WILL IT HAPPEN?

We have begun the development of the vinyl toy with a manufacturer out of China. We have created all the plans, style guides and have begun the process. We have the prototypes now comes the fun part...Full Production! But we cannot start that until we have...the money.

THE MONEY

The funds will be used to start the production of the first two RIVALS characters and hopefully fuel future RIVALS projects. The production of these toys including shipping, customs, and all other deliverables is $22,000. We need your help! So what do you get?

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, I am 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.
Thank you all for your support of RIVALS
