This is a project to produce a new Mr Toast doll - VINCE. Vince is a videocassette. He is about 8" tall and will be made in China. This doll will go into standard production and will be sold at comic shows by me and be available in MY WEBSTORE and through select resellers.
This is OBSOLETE VINCE. This special doll will only ever be available through this Kickstarter Project. He is a Limited Edition and after this project, he will never be produced again. Each of these dolls will come with a handmade tag which will be signed and numbered. He is 8" tall and made in China.
Most of the rewards are self explanatory but a few but a few need photos.
At the DOLL PACK level, you get these 6 dolls.
At the COMIC PACK level, you get Mr Toast Comics #1-6, Mr Toast Promo Comic & Superheroes. Mr Toast Comics #1 is out of print.
Here are examples of the types of drawings your will get at the CUSTOM DRAWING level. It is an original framed 5x7" drawing. You tell me what 1-2 characters you want me to draw and then I will make it happen.
For the ACRYLIC PAINTING level, you get to choose from these 6 paintings. Five of them are painted on masonite and have a wire on the back ready to hang. The sixth is framed. For more specific info/larger pics - send me a message.
At the LIMITED EDITION DOLLS reward level you will get all of these dolls. These are are limited or sold out dolls that are pulled from my personal archives.
First off THANKS! Vince is gonna be a reality. So to keep things going, I think we need a couple stretch goals
HOORAH we reached $4500, so everyone who pledged $25 or more will get these two spiffy 1.25" button.
And we reached $5000, so everyone at the $25 and up levels will get a PDF of the long out of print Imaginary World Comics #1!
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO
Every dollar that goes into this Kickstarter project will go right into the production and shipping of dolls. The dolls are designed and ready to be produced so as soon as the project is over (and if funding is successful), I will order the dolls. Any money raised over the stated goal will be used to order more dolls.
WHO AM I?
I am Dan Goodsell. I am an artist living in Los Angeles. I created Mr Toast while I was in college. Then in 2003 I started doing a webcomic, this blossomed into a small business which included producing Mr Toast comics, dolls, toys, jewelry, posters & and more. I show my original art at Gallery 1988, in Los Angeles, and other galleries all over the country and world.
Check out MY WEBSTORE to see more of the dolls and comics that I have produced.
Risks and challenges
Luckily this a pretty straight forward process. I have been producing dolls in China for the last 8 years. Once I place the order, it takes 30 for manufacture, then about 30 days to have them shipped to the US. So I think the December ship date will be a safe bet. The only thing that might happen is the dolls could get stuck in customs once they get here. It has never happened to me but I have heard of it occurring. If it does happen, everyone will be contacted and if new arrangements need to be made, they will be.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
