Meet Mr. Webby - the floppy, adorable companion of Heather Brown (AKA Spinnerette)! Now you can own your very own huggable spider!
Meet Mr. Webby, the lovable plush spider pal of Heather Brown (aka Spinnerette)!
Mr. Webby has been stealing the scene (and our hearts) since his first appearances!
Now, with the help of the amazing team at Squishable (especially the amazing Zoe), we're ready to take Mr. Webby from the pages of Spinnerette and into YOUR arms!
So... what IS Spinnerette and why should you help make a giant spider plushie??? Good question!!
Meet Heather Brown
She's your average mutated graduate student...
She fights crime in the Columbus, Ohio area with the rest of her team...
But most importantly... she has a giant plush spider named Mr. Webby!!
Now YOU TOO can own one of these oh-so-cuddly friends!
The deal with Mr. Webby:
So, here's the deal! Mr. Webby is currently in the prototype stage and he is ADORABLE! Zoe and the team at Squishable have been working with us for the past couple of months to put together the prototype that you see in these photographs. He's an extremely huggable 20 inches long by 15 inches across at his widest point! He is a pale lilac plush, with sewn eyes and nice floppy arms. We have gone through several prototypes from the factory in order to get him to this stage!
Once his legs are a bit longer, he's ready to go... except for ONE THING...
In order to get Mr. Webby into ANYBODY's arms (besides ours, because that's just the way it works with prototypes), we have to order 500 Mr. Webbies!!!! Now, that's a LOT of Mr. Webby plushies and we need YOUR help!!!!
The goal for this Kickstarter campaign is to raise enough to create, order AND ship 500 Mr. Webby plushies. Basically, the funds from this project will go towards the initial production. The funding goes towards getting the design to the factory, getting the construction perfect, and finally paying to have them produced. Additionally, the funds will go towards shipping costs from the factory to Chicago.
There are some fun donation rewards AND if we can reach $18,000 we'll even order MICRO MR. WEBBY KEYCHAINS!! (They will be amazing. Swear it.) IF we reach our stretch goal, we'll add the micros into the reward tiers.
Stretch Goal #1: $18,000
If we reach our stretch goal, we will produce Micro Mr. Webby Keychains, as seen here:
If we reach $18,000.00, all donations of $75 or greater will ALSO receive Micro Mr. Webby Keychains!!!
So. Mr. Webby. He's freaking awesome. Help us make him. You won't regret it!
**Please note: Mr. Webby will NOT give you super powers...
Yes, please back at the $60 or any higher level and Mr. Webby can travel anywhere!
The short answer to this is... maybe. Mr. Webby is being produced ONLY if we can raise the initial funds to purchase the initial batch of 500 plushies. So, if the Kickstarter is successful, we'll place the order and those who've pledged will get the first batch shipped out ASAP. Mr. Webby will then be sold at conventions and possibly online during occasional flash sales on the Spinnerette website. At the moment, Mr. Webby will ONLY be available through Spinnerette. Squishable.com is helping us with the design process, but Mr. Webby is not being sold through Squishable. So if you're not a convention goer, the absolute cheapest and surest way to get your hands on this cuddly guy is by pledging at least $50 on this Kickstarter!
While we know that, in the comic, Mr. Webby has been known to endow Sahira with Heather's powers, we have not been able to include this feature in the Mr. Webby plush. We did attempt to include powers, but were politely asked by men in lovely black suits to cease and desist. We are certain that this request was made to ensure the safety of all, and NOT to control the distribution of superpowers.
