Thanks, Kickstarter! You really made it happen for the Isiah Whitlock Jr. Talking Bobblehead. 

For future updates, please join us at http://www.sheeeeeeeeeit.com/ #AlwaysUse9Es

Sheeeeeeeee-it, pardners!   

Your support has made the Isiah Whitlock, Jr. Talking Bobblehead the most successful bobblehead in Kickstarter history. You helped us smash our target in just 12 hours… make headlines in Baltimore and beyond… and, even before we begin production, earn a place in the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame.

You even inspired David Simon, creator of The Wire, to deliver our Kickstarter prototype as a gift to "huge fan of The Wire" President Obama during his recent sit-down interview at the White House.

Isiah and I thank you for your support and can’t wait to get the First Edition Isiah Whitlock, Jr. Talking Bobblehead produced and delivered to our Kickstarter backers.

We made a few headlines along the way

"The Wire actor who played Clay Davis has a real-life bobblehead, and it's killing it on Kickstarter" -- Business Insider

“The sole Isiah Whitlock, Jr. Talking Bobblehead currently in existence... (is now) in the possession of The Wire megafan President Obama" -- Yahoo! TV

"Now you know what to get for all the fans of The Wire in your life on their birthdays" -- UPROXX

We were excited that so many people were excited

A message from Isiah Whitlock, Jr.

Hi Kickstarter. I’m Isiah Whitlock, Jr. For years, I’ve been doing everything I can to help people out when they need to hear me say "sheeeeeeeee-it!"

People come up to me on the street, in bars and restaurants, on trains and planes, at sports games and even on film sets, and ask me to say my signature catchphrase.

But think about. Stopping me on the street is not the most practical way to have me say sheeeeeeeee-it. 

The moment you happen to see me may not be the moment you really need a sheeeeeeeee-it. And it may not be the best time for me either. 

Fact is, I’m just one person and I can’t be everywhere. But here’s the good news. Now I can.

First Edition Isiah Whitlock, Jr. Talking Bobblehead
First Edition Isiah Whitlock, Jr. Talking Bobblehead

With the stunningly handsome Isiah Whitlock, Jr. Talking Bobblehead, I’ll be available to you anytime, night or day, whenever, wherever you need me.

You’ll have three different recordings each available to you at the push of the button. (Sheeeeeeeee-it! You did watch the video, right?)

Each Isiah Whitlock, Jr. Talking Bobblehead is individually hand-painted and packaged in its own collectible box. We’ve built the prototype and, with your support, we’re ready to go directly into production.

Act now because if you miss out on this Kickstarter campaign, I won’t be there to say it when you need it.

"Sheeeeeeeee-it!"

Risks and challenges

Production and shipping delays are always possible with a project such as this.

We have done our best to mitigate against these challenges by developing our prototype with Alexander Global Promotions (AGP), a company with a deep history in developing custom-made products and collectibles, and which has produced more than 45 million bobbleheads since 1996. AGP is a member of the Fair Labor Association and is C-TPAT compliant.

In addition we have identified several experienced fulfillment partners and, assuming we meet our Kickstarter goal, will make our final selection based on the volume of orders and our global shipping requirements.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: As with all bobbleheads, the Isiah Whitlock Jr. Talking Bobblehead contains small parts and is not intended as a toy for small children. It will be shipped with a standard warning label.
