    Rise of the Beasts - Rhino and Scorpion are here!

    Hi all!

    Figures have arrived! I am beyond ecstatic!

    So, here are the details...

    I will have these up for sale Saturday 11/15/2014. Reason being is I have to make sure I have time to pack and ship when the orders come in. I don't like to leave orders pending for more than a day.
    When they go on sale, it will be here:
    http://littlerubberguys.storenvy.com/

    Prices will be as follows:
    $4 each for the unpainted figures







    $7 each for the painted figures.



    Each figure will come with a proof of purchase sticker, redeemable for a limited edition figure (shown below).


    There are 4 very low run figures with special paint applications. Each figure will be redeemable (randomly) for 10 stickers.





    Lastly, for those of you who are getting a freebie gold figure from the Kickstarter offer, I will either include it in your first order or if you are not one of the folks who order that first weekend, I will just ship it out by itself at the same time as the other orders. You do not have to buy anything to get your promised freebie. Although it would be great if you did, ha ha!

    Thanks again for everyone who has helped with this project over the years. This is truly a dream come true!!!


    For those of you not familiar with these yet, they are in the 60mm scale and have 4-5 points of articulation (head, shoulders, waist and on the scorpion, the tail). The are made from a very firm PVC. The joints are all Glyos pegs so you could swap parts between them if you want and if you do pull a limb off, it will snap right back on.
    There are really a Battle Beast homage (I run the LittleRubberGuys forum) but more in line with a MOTU or Thundercats body style.

    We did but had to cancel (pre-funding) it last minute due to factory issues. The original factory we were using ended up boning us, but we had a few other sticks in the fire. One of those panned out wonderfully and here we are today.

    I was expecting the Spidey villains. I thought Rise of the Beasts was the title of a new plotline in the comics...

    I've actually heard that recently. Hopefully someone will do a custom Spidey Villain paint job on a set.

    I like the designs. I like the options. I like concepts. I like the colors. So, I think I will.

    yes! got my (painted) pair today! these things are awesome!
    very impressive, jkaris!
    I can honestly say they are much more well-executed than I expected even from the pictures. nice job, man.
    I am personally "in" for any/all characters you produce going forward! I'm hoping you can make me a whole fleet of these anthropomorphic animal warriors!
    thanks!

    Awesome! I am so glad you guys like them!

    If you can, please help spread the word. The faster we get through this batch, the faster we can move on to the next two.

    We've got 5 more figures already designed (I should have proto-types to show off in a month or so) and another 2 being developed.

    Thanks guys!

    Thanks, and you're welcome! I was afraid I didn't put enough focus on Rise of the Beasts, what with all the swapping. Hopefully my tiny corner of the net can manage to drum up some more business for ya.

    I just put up 4 army builder packs at the store! They are basically buy 10, get an 11th for free AND get one of the promo figures packed in, instead of having to redeem the stickers down the road.

    11 Gaamiks for the price of 10 AND the mail-away Black and Silver Rhino is already packed in. 12 figures total!

    11 Gold Rhinos for the price of 10 AND the mail-away Gold and Black Rhino is already packed in. 12 figures total!

    I've got a new batch of colors coming early next year and will also hopefully have some prototypes of other characters ready to show off by then as well.
