HOTLINE MIAMI Figure Hits Kickstarter and Slaughters Goal
Dennaton Games, Devolver Digital, and ESC-Toy Ltd. teamed up to bring the protagonist, “Jacket,” from the indie-hit video game Hotline Miami to the toy collector’s shelf with a Kickstarter campaign, and it’s already a success. The campaign for the “Jacket” figure hit yesterday and surpassed its $60,000 goal within the first day. The limited edition “Midnight Miami Marauder” colorway variant is all gone, and a couple other tiers, but there are still $85 pledges available for the regular figure with digital rewards and other lower tier pledges.
Original press release:
Hotline Miami’s “Jacket” Figure Rips Onto Collectors’ Shelves
The first 12” figure in a series from the hit game created by award-winning collectible artist ESC Toy, in his first collaboration with Dennaton and Devolver Digital.
Which mask will you choose to kill with today? With the new ⅙ scale collectible figure of “Jacket” from the Dennaton Games’ award winning title “Hotline Miami,” you can choose every day — right after you listen to your morning voicemails, that is.
The 12” poseable figure is ⅙ scale and comes with three collectible mask heads: Tony (Tiger), Richard (Rooster), Aubrey (Pig) and Bloody bandaged Jacket head. With two sets of real removable clothing and sharp details right down to the grey Air Vigilantes, you’ll feel like Jacket is always keeping an eye on you. 15 points of articulation will ensure that you can get the badass poses just right, and with three collectible guns (shotgun, baseball bat, and katana), Jacket is prepped for some wrecking and ready to deliver.
“HOTLINE MIAMI” took the indie game world by storm when it was released, presenting a stunning world of dark violence with a distinctly Lynchian flavor. The Jacket figure resurfaces the game’s universe at a perfect time, with fan hunger for “Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number” at an all-time high. What better way to await the new game than with your own vigilante in collectible form?
The Kickstarter campaign to fund the 12” “Jacket” figure launched on August 18, 2014, and aims to raise $60,000 to cover costs of making the figure. In addition to the regular 12” edition ( $85), a limited edition “Midnight Miami Marauder” colorway will also be available for supporters who pledge $200 or more. Supporters can also earn buttons, wallpapers, Steam keys of the sequel “Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number” and its soundtrack and more. The campaign runs through September 20 and is looking to catch the eyes of toy lovers and gamers.
