Our friends from Cryptid Toys have shared an update regarding their Super Articulated Action Figure Blanks Kickstarter Campaign. Here’s the scoop:
Things are still moving along nicely and since many of you have been asking where the BackerKit surveys are, and when the pre-order store for those who were not part of the campaign will open, this update will answer those questions.
The BackerKit Survey (for Kickstarter backers) where you will specify which figures you want to receive, and can also add more to your order will go out in mid-January. The folks at BackerKit have been super helpful in getting this set up in a way that makes the most sense and is easiest for everyone to respond to. The pre-order store front (for non-backers) on BackerKit will open the same time the surveys get sent to backers.
The only little bit of bad news is that there were 21 backers who never updated their payment methods on file, and therefore Kickstarter automatically cancelled their pledges. One of these was a rather large pledge so all together, this did knock the funding amount received down by several thousand dollars.
Because of this, the vote to see which remaining stretch goals will not be held, but rather there will be 4 stretch goals available to be unlocked during the BackerKit period. Those will be (in this order): Relaxed hands, Bare feet, White Male, and Silver Male. If your favorite stretch goal did not make it, I apologize but there will be more opportunities for those in the future.
There you have it! We’ll keep you posted as Austin and the team from Cryptid Toys share more details. Until then, join us after the break on the Cobra Island Forums for discussion already in progress!
