About My Design

Who's the cutest rust monster you ever did see? Rusty! Scare your players with this adorable metal-eating beastie from the classic Monster Manuals of yore. This is intended to be a small plush, about 8 inches from nose to tail and rather floppy. I'm very interested in getting feedback from the veterans. See the alt image for possible features. (You can see more of this character at http://www.rustyandco.com)

Great.

I'd buy it even if it came without the magnets, which are a pretty cool idea.

This is absolutely adorable, and the "Magnets in Feelers" bit is a perfect touch.

My gods, I have wanted a pet rust monster since the first time I saw one in the monster manual.

There's no specific number of votes needed - all we have to do is convince PT that there's enough interested buyers to make this design worthwhile.  We're getting close!   If you know any fans of the comic who haven't voted yet, give'm a push in the right direction.

We're making progress...how high does the average score need to be before it gets approved?

@spectresghost:  Actually, I think I'd like to change the design to have a couple hidden pockets for magnets in the feelers, so people who want the magnets can just slip them in, and those who don't are good to go.  I'm sure PatchTogether will be happier that way, too, since I don't know if they're set up to include magnets in their productions.

I'm not sold one the wire in the tail or the magnets, but otherwise I love it

SQUEEEEE! more bunnies.
eset commented on 18th Jul 2011 (Report Spam)
Awww! Want one want one want one! Might want to make sure his feelers aren't attracted to the wire in his tail, though (would a rubber coating on the internal wire do it?). Other than that, perfect. Can the magnets be really really strong? It'd be cool if he could hang from curtain rods etc. Are the eyes going to be push as well, or hard plastic?

@evil-santa:   That's a very good issue.   Before I started, I did the research:  As far as I can tell, rust monsters are not a trademark of TSR or Wizards on the Coast.   Rust Monster game mechanics are covered under an Open Gaming License, and that's it.

(For example, here: http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/rustMonster.htm  You'll notice creatures that ARE intellectual property, such as beholders, modron and illithid, are not on that webpage.)

Additionally, there's also a pretty good case that "Rusty the Rust Monster" is clearly a work of parody, and therefore protected.

I feel confident I'm in the clear, but thanks for bringing to my attention.

I love the design and think it could be rather successful. The problem is that (I would assume) copyright for the Rust Monster design, anatomy and characteristics belong to Dungeons and Dragons and WotC by extension. Therefore the toy would not be allowed to produced.

I must have one of these.

The magnets are a really great idea.

Squeedorable and fashionably nerdy. What's not to love ?

It's adorable - love the comic.
Razre commented on 20th Jun 2011 (Report Spam)
Kairiko its neither, its a Rust Monster. Its a cute critter from the game Dungeons and Dragons that is feared by most for its insatiable appetite for metal, yet adored because... well, they're cute. I understand the assumption, I am just offering a friendly clarification. I would absolutely buy one of these, my girlfriend would love it!

Best rust monster ever
Plokman commented on 19th Jun 2011 (Report Spam)

I vote for this. He just so cute.

Seeing as my ranger used to have a pet rust monster she kept in a portable hole, I really, really need this!

So cute... but the bane of the player loaded down in plate armor with a big sword and shield. I need this little guy to bring to DnD games

I can't resist a toy based on a cartoon based on a game based on a toy.

Hmm.  It cut off my comment at the ampersand.  :(  I was trying to say:

"I bet a lot of D and D fans would want one of these."

Wyvernhand commented on 13th Jun 2011 (Report Spam)
I would totally buy one of these. Great for anyone who knows and understands D
Kairiko commented on 11th Jun 2011 (Report Spam)

I don't see this translating well into plush form, especially such a small plush. Just too detailed.

Plus, it's suppose to be like a bug or crustation, right? So it seems like a hard shell would fit it better than a soft plushy one.

It's a cute critter, though.

Rapierking commented on 11th Jun 2011 (Report Spam)
Oh, HELLS YEAH ! ! ! This is awesome, especially the magnets in the feelies!
