After just two days, the Janky Series 2 Kickstarter campaign from Superplastic is off to a roaring start, eclipsing the initial $25k goal by roughly 12x with 28 days to go. Series 2 features exciting designs from Add Fuel, Caramelaw, Chocotoy, Jor Ros, Julie West, Pete Fowler, Guggimon, Huck Gee, James Groman, Seen, Squink, TADO, 2PetalRose, Wattle and one mystery artist. The new series features an almost entirely new roster compared to S1 with Pete Fowler and Huck Gee as the only returnees. As with the first series, the new collection is a strongly curated mix of artists well known to art toy fans and talented artists and illustrators who are making their toy debuts. Overall the new designs are full of life including Jeiko from 2PetalRose, Smiley Don from dino loving James Groman, and the mystical Zero dragon-inspired design—with wicked tail—by Wattle. Series 2 is set to drop in November 2019.
In addition to the brand-new Janky series, Superplastic is also offering two 8-inch Superjanky figures in Kickstarter exclusive editions: Gloomy by Mori Chack and Bendybones by Squink. And… there’s a brand-new 12″ Work & Play figure from Guggimon. Finally, what would a Janky Kickstarter be without a new King Janky or two? Fear not, his highness returns as a royal ninja with the new King Janky IV design in both a regular blue edition and an early-bird Storm Edition which will be added to all pledges/orders placed before 9 AM PDT on Friday (5.10).
