2 DAYS LEFT : Linsner & Dynamite’s DAWN Kickstarter Earns FIVE Times Its Goal!
It’s official: Dynamite Entertainment and Joseph Michael Linsner’s DAWN statue Kickstarter is a runaway success! With TWO days to go, the campaign-gearing up toward Dawn’s 30th anniversary-has raised FIVE times its original goal, funding in six hours and crossing both stretch goals by day two. Due to its incredible momentum and hitting these stretch goals, there are now three (adding a costume variant!) versions of this gorgeous statue available, as well as brand-new rewards
The success of this statue reinforces what Dynamite already knew: 30 years after her creation, the Goddess of Rebirth is more beloved than ever, with a devoted fanbase eager to get their hands on exclusive rewards like signed comics, sketchbooks, and prints. In fact, fans were so enthusiastic, the $500-level rewards sold out the very first day! This spurred Joseph Michael Linsner to up the ante, offering two new rewards: a limited-edition Dawn Vampirella gold foil hardcover with an original sketch at the $400 level, and an original 11″ x 17″ art board illustration of Dawn at the $1,000 level.
“We’ve been working with Joe for over 20 years, and our close relationship has led to some great collaborations. He’s a great talent, actually one of the most talented in the industry. Joe’s attention to detail is incredible, and we worked on this statue for nearly a year till he felt it was perfect. I feel blessed to be able to work with him as often as we do,” said Dynamite Entertainment CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “Being able to work closely with Joe to create this statue in advance of Dawn’s 30th anniversary was an exciting idea for me, and we’re thrilled about the results. Our designer, Georg Brewer, continues to impress us with the work he does, and he continues to bring our work to the next level. We have no doubt Dawn fans will agree when they see it for themselves.”
Dynamite’s hand-painted statue measures 12″ tall and is the perfect piece to honor Dawn’s upcoming 30th anniversary. Linsner has worked closely with Rvckvs International and Georg Brewer-the talented artists behind the sensational Women of Dynamite Statue series-and it shows. The final result reveals their incredible attention to detail, from the three tears running from her left eye, to the skulls along her famous curves. Plus: in addition to the standard version, there are now “Black and White” and “Costume” variants to choose from!
“I’m very excited about Dynamite’s new Dawn statue,” said Linsner. “Dawn has many different looks, but this may be her most popular outfit. I think it is the one which I have seen cosplayed the most.”
There are still fantastic goodies available to fit any budget, starting at just $10, but time’s running out-you have just 2 days to back the Dawn 30th anniversary statue and complete your collection, so don’t delay:
