Yesterday, we received word that Buff Monster is creating a Kickstarter campaign for the second series of The Melty Misfits trading cards. Way back in April of 2012, we wrote quite a bit about The Melty Misfits and Buff Monsters so take a look here if you’d like to read more about the series and the wildly talented artist.
The Melty Misfits Series 2 Kickstarter campaign is live now. Below is the link and below that is more from Buff Monster about what Series 2 will entail.
Tomorrow, I’ll launch the Kickstarter campaign for The Melty Misfits Series 2. The first series has been a great success and now it’s time to do a second series. This new set of trading cards/stickers is going to be even more ambitious than the first: featuring 40+ new characters (Series 1 had 30 characters), new Kickstarter-exclusive packaging, and hopefully some new awesome inserts like foil cards and lenticulars.
Having already done a first series of the cards, we know how much time and money it takes to make a project like this a reality. We self-funded the first series, but we’re eager to crowd-fund the second. I’ve never crowd funded anything before, but besides raising the money, I’m eager to get people involved in a way that’s never been possible before. Obviously I’m very active on social media, but backers will get tons of exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and info. Kickstarter also allows me to offer rewards (physical and experiential!) that I’ve never offered before. So I’m really excited to see this project come together and I hope you’ll be a part of it!
As you can see, the Kickstarter project is quite ambitious with lots of pledge levels. The rewards range from packs of Melty Misfits Series 2 to pie-in-the-sky items like an afternoon with Buff Monster, original paintings, and a tour of the plant where Melty Misfits are produced. and The Kickstarter page itself is quite interesting and gives a lot of details into the process of creating a project like this. We’ve heard there’s even some cooler things planned should the project reach its Kickstarter goal, and we’re really hoping it will! So if you’re a fan of the first series, Buff Monster’s art, or simply a trading card collector, we hope you’ll give the project some consideration.
