    Legendary Monsters- Super cool cryptozoology toyline being funded through Kickstarter

    Has anyone seen this yet? It is a line of 5-7 inch figures based off of various creatures from cryptozoology such as the Chupacabra, Jersey Devil, and most importantly Mothman. Not only do these look really freaking cool but they seem like they could be really versatile in terms of various action figure lines. Some of these guys would look great hanging out in the Grayskull dungeon, no? The second series is supposed to have some kind of frog creatures which would go great with Hellboy figures (considering Mezco never got around to making a frog creature in their Hellboy comic line).


    I wasn't sure if a link to a Kickstarter project was ok, so I'll put a link to a story I wrote on this project and a link to the company's website:

    THe figures look cool, but it doesn't look like there's much chance of them being made.

    I love the idea of a line based on these creatures; I've been fascinated by Bigfoot and other cryptos since I was a kid. Even have a marble-like casting/repro of a footprint left behind by the Patterson creature. But, honestly, the one thing I've always wanted is an accurate Bigfoot, which this really isn't, something that matches the descriptions and represents what the creature probably looks like. That's something I'd snatch up without a second thought.

    I just discovered this toyline. Really hope this gets made. Like Masters of the Universe Classics, I bet a lot of potential buyers don't know about this line. I will donate if they hold another fundraiser. Also told some friends about it who are interested in the figures.

    This line is back and has already reached double it's funding goal! Now a gaming component has been added on to the figures as well. Check out this cool interview I did with Richard Todd Broadwater, the creator of the line who has also worked on numerous other toylines (Jurassic Park, Star Trek,Star Wars, X-Men) and with Bethesda Softworks on the Fallout and Elder Scrolls series: http://www.thepicreview.com/2013/04/epic-interview-richard-todd-broadwater.html
