Acheson Creations and Bailey Records are pleased to announce that our latest Kickstarter project, Kaiju Kaos: Super Robot StratoMaxx, is underway!
“When dreaming up Kaiju Kaos in late 2009, I had four core colossal characters in mind; three were kaiju and the fourth was the heroic Super Robot designed to combat the menacing monsters. As time passed, we’ve released numerous kaiju but the robot kept getting pushed to the back of pile… until now! The primary goal of this Kickstarter is to fund Super Robot StratoMaxx.”
“It is my hope that this resin model kit will appeal to both the gaming community that birthed Kaiju Kaos and also the designer toy community that has embraced many of my other creations.”
StratoMaxx is inspired by classic Super Robot designs such as Mazinger Z, Gigantor, UFO Robot Grendizer, and Mattel’s Shogun Warriors. He also takes on some characteristics from Transformers and Voltron.
Super Robot StratoMaxx stands roughly 13 inches tall and has a 6 inch diameter integral base. The jetpack wings are 7 inches from tip to tip.
A secondary goal of this project is to fund the materials needed to create sci-fi stylized weaponry. These 28mm (1:56) scale weapons can be used as arm attachments on StratoMaxx and can also be used to convert toy/model vehicles into a more “futuristic” design for use in playing Kaiju Kaos – The Miniatures Game.
Each design is handmade by Bryan K Borgman (aka Stratos) and ready to hand cast in a durable urethane plastic by Craig Acheson. Your support will enable us to take these new designs and put them into production.
Lastly, as the Kickstarter video suggests, if we reach our goal, we have a variety of Stretch Goals in mind including new kaiju and other Super Robot designs for some rock’em, sock’em, robot-fighting goodness!
