Patrick Thomas Parnell’s “Last of the Seekers” Toy/Comic Combo Campaign Now Live
On Thursday, independent comic book creator and Riot Press founder Patrick Thomas Parnell launched a pair of dueling crowdfunding campaigns for Last of the Seekers, an all new sci-fi project featuring a
transforming alternating robot toy and accompanying comic book.*
Inspired by other
transforming shape-changing bots of the 1980s, Last of the Seekers is an intergalactic adventure about a robot archaeologist who travels through space searching for signs of his lost civilization.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Last of the Seekers Indiegogo campaign page:
The Last of the Seekers is a 22 page comic book about a robot archaeologist on a journey traveling across the universe. He’s searching for artifacts from his home world that was destroyed long ago, in hopes they will reveal the origins of his planet, as well as its destruction. “The Seeker” becomes friends with a human female pilot who also comes from a mysterious past. She’s one of the best pilots in the sky, fights like a super solider and is sexy AS hell! Together these two are looking for clues into their past and also help others along the way as they travel from solar system to solar system.
Last of the Seekers was created by illustrator Patrick Thomas Parnell and Riot Press Productions LLC with the robot co-designed by Piotr Sidoruk. Now, along with Ramen Toy, Riot Press is producing a 7 inch tall, mainline scale transforming robot toy of “The Seeker”. He will have two modes: robot mode and space jet mode. He will come with two guns, two swords, two missiles(which have spring firing tech) and a shield. He will be available in 2 colors schemes: G2(green, purple, black and yellow) and Stealth(red, gray and black).
The 22 page comic book that is also available is written and illustrated by Patrick Thomas Parnell w/ Matt Bahr and Arvid Nelson. The G2 exclusive cover is by Don Allan Figueroa and Billy Bacsko!
This is the lore of The Last of the Seekers… an exciting, NEW and energetic robot SAGA!
With Last of the Seekers, Parnell (Ultra Star, Johnny Phantasm) is launching campaigns on both Indiegogo and Kickstarter, with some items exclusive to each platform. There are too many combinations of perks and pricing to list here, but the comic book alone starts at $15, while the
transforming morphing robot Seeker starts at $85. If you’re looking to be a big spender, other items up for grabs include:
- Multiple copies of the comic
- Variant covers
- A “stealth mode” version of the Seeker
- Collector’s box
- Keshi mini figures
- Collector’s Glass
- Trading Cards
- Sticker Pack
It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge for all backers depending on which tier you select.
