Kickstarter - Rivals: Masters of the Deep

The guys over at World of Rivals are expanding the Rivals brand by creating a miniature boardgame, based around the Rivals story. Rivals: Masters of the Deep is a tactical 2 or more player game set in the depths of the Lurk. Many people may recognize the Rivals characters from previously successful Kickstarters, which were funded to create art toys. The latest Kickstarter from the World of Rivals is to fund  the miniatures board game Rivals: Masters of the Deep. With a funding goal of $40k, as of this blog posting, the Kickstarter has already raised more than half the amount. With early bird pricing of the game set to a reward level of $75 plus shipping, if all 500 early bird spots were to be spoken for, the Kickstarter would be really close to reaching the set $40k goal. One of the good things about the World of Rivals' Kickstarters is that they always think about stretch goals. This time around, each stretch goal beyond the initial funding goal, introduces more figures that will be included for rewards above the Early Bird Level (or above $75 pledged). Head on over to the Rivals: Masters of the Deep Kickstarter page to check out all the wonderful figures and read about the story. Make a pledge, spread the word and get this Kickstarter funded asap.

REVIEW: Nannoo by Lillikit

Lillikit is a South Korean shop that collaborates with artists from all over the world to create interesting art and designs. They were kind enough to send me some of their new Nannoo figures

Nannoo, a kitten flying to the sky, is the creation of  Lee Seung Min, an art director for films, animation and advertising from Seoul, South Korea.  Lee, along with her ten year old son, started the design of Nannoo with the simple shape of a ball.   

Nannoo is a small sphere about the size of your hand (hands may vary, it's about the size of MY hand) with four legs, ears, a tail and an adorable cat design.  One of my favorite details is the design of the nose/mouth.  A line swoops in over the left eye curling around and joining a second line to create a smiling appearance.  Just looking at these little guys puts a smile on my face. Nannoo currently comes in five different colors, the Pastel Series, which are representative of the seasons.  Min and Lillikit have plans to release the Nannoo figures in many more fun and creative designs in the future as well as you can see below.  These toys will delight both children and adult collectors alike.
