Troublefish has teamed up with Pobber to manufacture their "Capt QUINT" vinyl toy, and has started a Kickstarter to help make that a reality!
WHAT-IS: "Capt QUINT is a limited edition vinyl designer toy. He’s eight inches long, stylized, and also happens to be a great white shark. His name is ironically credited to the ill-fated shark hunter (portrayed by the late Robert Shaw) of Steven Spielberg’s 1975 Jaws.
Capt QUINT is the first in a series of nautical-themed, mid-century-technology inspired, retro-styled collectible toys. Debuting with the Late War Camouflage, additional special editions are planned (Night – black, Arctic – blue/grey, Tropical – sand/yellow, Early War – kelp green/red)"
Designed by Thomas Troisch (below featured illustration via), a Pledge Goal of US$30K is to be reached by March 5th, 2016. Find out more on the project's a Kickstarter!
