Long time toy and video game designer Richard T. Broadwater looks to finally make his figures a reality
If you were reading toy magazines a few years ago you might have gotten your first glimpse at Nevermore Toy's Legendary Monsters line. They're the product of long time figure designer and video game artist Richard T. Broadwater who's trying to turn his passion for figures into a line he can call his own.
Using Kickstarter in an attempt to fund this project a goal of US$350,000 has been set, though at this time they've only reached US$4,852 from 75 backers with 19 days still remaining. The first series of Legendary Monsters figures includes Mothman, the Jersey Devil, Chupacabra, and the Missouri Monster. Each figure comes with a special base and victim figure designed to recreate real life sightings. There's even a second series planned along with larger deluxe figure sets. There are 13 tiers up for backing ranging from a US$1 "thank you" to a US$5,000 package that includes 8 prototypes and an actual sculptor's blueprint.
So, got a thing for cryptozoology or monsters in general? Maybe you're like me and spend a lot of late nights listening to Coast to Coast AM? These might just be the figures you've been waiting for. If you want to make a pledge you only have until February 6 to get one in.
