From the update:

Hello and thank you for supporting this Kickstarter! We’re at $990.00 with 22 days to go… 1/3 of the way to our goal!

There have been a few emails that have come in asking how the components for Super Robot StratoMaxx breakdown so I wanted to take this opportunity to share these two illustrations by Cline A. Siegenthaler (www.redgremlin.com) with you!

StratoMaxx “unassembled” shows the head, torso, two arms, two fists, pelvis, two legs, two feet, and the jetpack. Each is a separate piece, handcrafted from wood and apoxie sculpt, and will be cast in an extremely durable urethane resin.StratoMaxx assembled! He stands 13 inches tall, is 7 inches wide at the tips of his wings, and comes with a 6 inch diameter integral terrain base for display or game play.

Hopefully this has been informative. Please spread the word and help us get funded so everyone can have a Super Robot StratoMaxx in their collection!

We’re excited to announce that rewards for our American Frontier Kickstarter that ended on June 2nd are continuing to ship daily and that we’ve almost cleared the decks!

We’re also excited to announce that our online Thank You page is now available for all the world to see!

Thank you for contributing to our American Frontier Kickstarter!

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    The diagrams look soooo much more intriguing than the photos of the model. You can see the potential instead of just a lackluster paint job and that inscrutable black head.

  • Disgruntled Goat

    Nope. This is, especially given its size, the single ugliest model I have seen in at least a decade. Even cheap toy-store type robots look better.

    Ugh.

  • Yeah. This whole KS campaign baffles me.

    • Riquende

      Maybe it’s ironic? Some sort of post-modern commentary on the state of wargaming kickstarters in 2013?

      I remember the halcyon days of early 2012, before all the cynicism.

    The Warlords of Wor article a few posts back looked vaguely interesting – it kind of has a Heroscape / mixed genres potential to it. Then I saw the art and the names, and realized that it’s by the same people who are trying to bring us this StratoMaxx. And it made me sad.

    The quality of ther Kaiju Kaos line varies so wildly, sometimes even in a single model, that it’s really tough to take seriously.

  • Hey guys! Thanks for all the enthusiasm! As a special treat, here’s a new promotional video I just whipped up for Super Robot StratoMaxx -> http://youtu.be/K0FTeCeTGtM

    Enjoy and keep on spreading the love! <3 🙂
