About

Hey everyone ! I am Vincent Scala. I have been a professional illustrator for the past 14 years. If you’re not familiar with my work I’m sure you have seen some of the work I have created for clients. I have worked for Nickelodeon, Disney, Atlantic Records and Fisher Price. I have also animated music videos, which have had over 2 million viewers as well as shown in galleries throughout the NYC area. That’s actually where this journey began.

Please feel free to check out my website:

www.vincentscala.com

Last year I had the pleasure of creating a vinyl toy based off of one of my illustrations. It was very successful and I gained a ton of fans globally ! I have sooo many more characters that I want to share with the world. Here is my chance to share my next creation. Lucky Cat !

Who is Lucky Cat?

Lucky Cat is by far my most obsessive drawing to date. He lands on almost every page of my sketchbook. With his half missing arm and missing eye there, he makes you wonder how can he be so lucky? He is branded with the lucky 13 on his belly to guide him through his troubles !  There is something very cute about him, but also an air of mystery to his personality as well as how he lost his arm and eye ! We will all know soon enough in the mini- comic included with the vinyl toy. I think he has a mischievous side !

Here are some images of the awesome extras that are included in these great tiers !! I wanted to do something different and special. The resin copies and heads are all hand made by me personally, painted and will be numbered. I will also be throwing in a few extras to those who get this tier! For backers 1, 15, 25, 50, 100, and 150 I will be giving away some extra resin copies (mystery surprises) !!!!!

 Over the past year everyone screamed that they wanted super high quality. Now that I've realized I am entering a world of collectors and fans I want to give them that quality. I reached out to the factory and asked them to send me a few examples of their quality. I was very impressed with what they had sent. I am holding them to the "Sofubi" soft vinyl high quality work that comes out of Japan. I think that everyone who participates in this project will be ecstatic with the type of toy they will receive.

I wanted to go bigger. Why not !!! Here is a direct comparison with the Mickey Monster and Lucky Cat is much bulkier and larger than Mickey Monster. I also tried my best to keep the cost down so that he could be shared with as many people as possible.

Risks and challenges

Unfortunately creating a toy is not so easy, and the cost of the mold and high order quantities and shipping. A higher quality toy requires better materials as well as better molds to create them with. So basically the whole process is far from cheap. Having a large community of people who would be interested in having this toy would be the best way to help make this come alive. Not only would I be getting to have one of my characters created as a vinyl toy, but also I would be able to share it with the world.

So Where Does the Money Go? If you are wondering who and what would need $8000 to create a toy, then look no further! Hope this helps answer some questions/concerns.

The most expensive portion of this venture is the mold. The mold gets created of of steel before being poured and spun with liquid vinyl. The molds are made out of steel.

he second largest cost of creating this figure is the MOQ or minimum order quantity. The lowest amount I was able to have created to even have a factory look at this project is 500 pieces. That seems like a lot of toys and it is!, but after all is said and done with the kickstarter hopefully there will not be many left !
