If you like fan films, then you’re probably familiar with the work of Sandy Collora. He was the creator of Batman: Dead End, the insanely popular short film that pitted the Dark Knight against a Predator and closed out with him caught in the middle of an Alien and Predator battle. He recently successfully Kickstarted funding for a short film called Shallow Water, an old-school practical effects creature feature. Now he’s back with a Kickstarter that toy collectors may want to check out. His new Kickstarter is for action figures of the Tiburonera, the creatures from Shallow Water. The Souls of the Abyss figures would be articulated 6″ scale figures with weapons. They are looking for a total of $60,000 to bring the project to life. Here’s the details direct from the Souls of the abyss Kickstarter:
From the dark depths of the imagination of renowned Hollywood creature designer and filmmaker Sandy Collora, comes a lost tribe of reptilian prehistoric sea creatures called the Tiburonera– the SHARK HUNTERS!!!
The scale is basically your standard 6 inch action figure scale, the same as Mythic Legions. These figures are approximately 7.5 inches tall, depending on the way you position the head and the stance of the figure itself, but the actual monster– and by that I mean the creature suits used in the film, varied from 6′ 10″ to 7′ 5″ on set, depending on the actor, so in the 6 inch scale size, you have figures that are 7 inches ++ tall. So, for lack of a better term, it’s one inch to the foot.
Though one sculpture just like we did in the film for the creature suits, these aquatic, reptilian figures are available in 5 different color patterns to match the ones in the movie, plus a blank one, cast in either a light gray or off white, to create your own unique look! The head sculpture for the MONARCH however, is different to show the age and battle damage he’s sustained over the millennia…
