From Wayne Losey of Dynamo Development Labs comes THE HERO PROJECT - with the emphasis of the development and production of action figures that "lets kids play with (and learn about) great heroes from different cultures from around the globe."
And their first figure is the hero Rama from the Indian epic, the Ramayana - and he is now on Kickstarter, with a US$125K pledge-goal. Interesting premise, I have to say, and the figure looks great too!
"We only have until midnight on August 8th (8/8) to fund this project completely and make it happen. This first week is REALLY important- we need to let as MANY people as possible know about this project so the word will spread and we can pre-sell these figures to meet our goal."
