Back the Cronus Magnus Kickstarter Campaign by Eric Smith

Cronus Magnus campaign details:
This campaign is a follow up to my previously successful 2014 Project: Vulkira Kickstarter campaign. Because every heroic robot needs a nemesis, I bring you Cronus Magnus™! By backing this campaign you will help me build on and continue my vision for my line of Vulkira vinyl (and resin) toys and my planned, accompanying Vulkira comic book!

Inspired by my favorite giant Japanese robots and limited to 300 pieces with a painted glow-in-the-dark colorway, Cronus Magnus will stand 10.5" and will have 3 points of articulation, foil belly sticker as well as interchangeable hand/weapon attachments. Cronus Magnus will be packaged in a printed box.

As of the time of publication, it's 27% funded!

Klim Kozinevich Interviewed on Adventures in Design Podcast

Our friend Klim Kozinevich of Bigshot Toyworks is interviewed by Mark Brickey on the AMAZING Adventures in Design podcast. They talk toy design and development, working with clients, managing development projects and the evolution of Klim's career... all the dirty details, from tendonitis due to days of sculpting by hand, to the early moment of desperation that led Klim to don a homemade monster suit and hand out resumes outside of Toy Fair.

REALLY fun to hear the backstories of "the dude behind the dude." He's come a long way since then, stacking up some of the biggest brands in the world as his clients. Listen here on the AID website where you can play the track via SoundCloud or iTunes.
