Buff Monster – Melty Misfits Series 2 Kickstarter
Buff Monster is following up on the success of his first series of Melty Misfits trading cards with a brand new series. If his first homage to the Garbage Pail Kids didn’t cement him as the world’s #1 fan of the 80’s sensation, the second series certainly will. To make it a reality, he’s launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $10k to help with the many costs of creating and producing the new cards.
Go big or go home, and that’s what Buff is doing. For series 2 he’s creating 40 original character designs (80 cards in all with the beloved A/B editions), topping the 30 of the first series. As with series 1, Melty Misfits 2 will be about much more than just the standard cards, there will be plenty of chase cards including error cards, signature cards, sketch cards, variant cards and more. And then there’s the mother of all chases… two Golden tickets, each redeemable for something ‘unparalleled’.
If you loved the first series of Melty Misfits kiss-cut trading card stickers, head on over to the Melty Misfits S2 kickstarter page to check out the various rewards including two packs ($10), four packs ($20), complete base set with Kickstarter exclusive box ($40), and more.
