Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, today announced the March 15 release of Cryptkins™ vinyl figures and the immediate launch of the Cryptkins™Channel on Quidd
Quidd the fast-growing platform for digital goods on iOS and Android. Cryptkins™ are Cryptozoic’s first original series of vinyl figures. They are inspired by various creatures that have been the subject of folklore and tabloid headlines for decades. The Cryptkins™ Channel on Quidd will feature static and animated trading cards, stickers, and 3D figures based on both the initial 2.25-inch vinyl figures and future releases.
“With Cryptkins™, we have an original IP that we’re really excited about, so we have planned a unique launch of both digital and physical collectibles. Through the Cryptkins™ Channel on Quidd, people can explore the world of Cryptkins™ and discover these characters’ colorful personalities. And then, beginning in March, they will be able to collect their favorite characters as vinyl figures. Cryptkins™ are highly collectible in any form and we’re excited to see fans try to get them all!
said John Sepenuk, CEO of Cryptozoic.
Cryptkins™ vinyl figures are each approximately 2.25-inches tall and include legendary creatures like Nessie, Chupacabra, Cthulhu, Bigfoot, Jersey Devil, and Yeti. There are 13 figures in all, with 2 of them being rare and 1 of them ultra-rare. Sculpted by Sam Greenwell, each figure comes packaged in a collectible, blind-reveal miniature crate.
The Cryptkins™ Channel on Quidd will feature several digital card sets:
- “Fun in the Sun,” showing diurnal Cryptkins™
- “Bump in the Night,” highlighting nocturnal characters
- “Habitat Cards,” depicting the environments in which the different creatures are found; and
- “Which Cryptkin™,” a quiz-based set using the character silhouettes to test how well users know their Cryptkins™.
In addition, the animated card set “Cryptkin™ Crates” shows the creatures breaking out of their crates.
Digital stickers will include several sets organized around the creatures’ origins and preferred terrain: “Take It to the Sky,” “Land & Sea Cryptkins™,” and “Cosmic & Magical Cryptkins™.” Moreover, the distinctive “Retro Cryptkins™” set contains digital stickers of the Cryptkins™ inspired by the graphics of 8-bit video games.
Finally, the Cryptkins™ Channel includes three sets of 3D figures:
- Folklore Box
- Legends Box
- Mythical Box
The digital figures can be rotated and viewed from multiple angles; as well as being shared with friends via social media.
Cryptkins™ vinyl figures will be available at retailers nationwide March 15 for a suggested retail price of $5.99 each. The Cryptkins™ Channel is live now on Quidd—free to download on the App Store and Google Play—and is being updated with new content all the time.
