About the Project:

What are some of your favorite pop culture quotes? “No, I’m Your Father.”, “Space:The Final Frontier”, “Snakes! Why'd it Have to Be Snakes?!”. We all have our favorite quotes from our favorite pop culture characters. The quotes that remind us of our favorite movies, comics, and tv shows. They've been used in action figure phrases, and now turned into lames memes on the internet. But memes and crapy toy speakers can only go so far. Until NOW!

Get your own POP Culture Mini Character Standee, including 6 interchangeable quotes for you to choose from. You can get a small portrait size, or a larger full body cut out, featuring a light wire attachment to secure the quote text bubble in an adjustable and durable position.

Each standee is printed on premium art paper and adhered to quarter inch thick form board. They are all equipped with a foam board wedge stand that can be collapsed down for easy storage and shipping. All quote bubbles are also printed on premium art paper, and then laminated for extra protection.

Now you can decorate your desk at work, your mantle at home, or even get one as a gift for that fellow pop culture fan in your life! You can even collect multiple characters like, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Ghostbusters, the Star Trek Crew, or even the Avengers!

Choose Your Character:

You tell me which character you want and I can make it! I will select 6 of the most popular quotes for that character, or you can choose the quotes yourself if you’d prefer.

You can also tell me a style in which you want your character done in, and I will replicate it to the best of my ability. If you want something specific we can discuss your vision. I'm sure I'll be able to do it!

I’ve made several Example Standees for this campaign including:

  • Batman (TV series) 
  • Robin (TV Series)
  • Iron Man (MCU) 
  • Catwoman (Batman Returns) 
  • Darth Vader (Movie) 
  • Indiana Jones (Movie)
  • Captain Kirk (TV Series) 
  • Princess Leia (Movie)

Standee Size Options:

You can choose from 2 sizes. A 6in. half figure size from the waist up for $10, or you can go for it and get a 10in. full body size, showing everything from head to toe for $20. If you want more than just one, you can also choose 1 or each, a set of 3, or even a set of 4!

Example Quotes:

Each Mini Standee comes with 6 Interchangeable quotes printed on premium paper and then laminated for extra durability! I will select the most poplar quotes for your character, but if you'd like to make some suggestions you're more than welcome to let me know what quotes you want.

If 6 isn't enough to fully capture all the best your character has to offer, you will have the ability to add more at only $.50 per additional quote.

Here are some examples of quotes I've selected for the example standees:

Batman (TV series)

  • “Some days you just can’t get rid of a bomb!” 
  • “Come on, Robin, to the Bat Cave! There's not a moment to lose!”
  • “Roger, ready to move out”

  • “Precisely Robin!” 
  • “Yet, an exploding shark was pulling my leg…”

Iron Man (MCU)

  • “I am Iron Man!” 
  • “J.A.R.V.I.S., sometimes you gotta run before you can walk.”
  • “Have you ever tried Shawarma? I don’t know what it is, but I wanna try it.” 
  • "You know, the question I get asked most often is, 'Tony, how do you go to the bathroom in your suit?'... Just like that." 
  • "Textbook narcissism? ... Agreed." 
  • “Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist.”

Catwoman (Batman Returns) 

  • “But a kiss can be even deadlier if you mean it.” 
  • “Meow.” 
  • “I am Catwoman. Hear me roar.” 
  • “I don't know about you, Miss Kitty, but I feel so much yummier.” 
  • “Saved by kitty litter.” 
  • “Who’s the man behind the bat? Maybe you can help me find the woman, behind the cat?”

Darth Vader (Movie) 

  • “No, I am your father!” 
  • “The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner. Now I am the master.” 
  • “The force is strong with this one.”

  • “You underestimate the power of the dark side.”

  • “It belongs in a museum.” 
  • “Fly yes, Land...no.” 
  • “We do not follow maps to buried treasure and X never, ever marked the spot!” 
  • “It’s not the years honey, it’s the mileage.” 
  • “I don't know. I'm making this up as I go.”

Captain Kirk (TV Series)

  • “Working hard is important, but there is something that matters much more. Believing in yourself.” 
  • “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” 
  • “Every great wizard in history has started out as nothing more than what we are now, students. If they can do it, why not us?” 
  • “Time will not slow down when something unpleasant lies ahead.” 
  • “I solemnly swear, I am up to no good.”

Princess Leia (Movie) 

  • “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.” 
  • “Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?” 
  • “Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder.”
  • “I’d just as soon kiss a Wookie.” 
  • “Governor Tarkin, I should have expected to find you holding Vader’s leash. I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board.” 
  • “Someone has to save our skins. Into the garbage chute, fly boy.”

How are they Constructed?

Each Mini Standee is printed on premium matte photo paper and then glued to a piece of quarter inch foam board. Then each one is meticulously cut out by hand and fixed with a small foam board stand that is attached with small pieces of velcro for easy removal when storing. 

Then another small square of foam board is hot glued to a thin piece of 28 gauge galvanized steel wire, for a strong yet posable fixture to attach the quote bubbles.

Each quote bubble is printed on the same high quality matte photo paper, and then laminated for extra durability.

What is Make 100?

Make 100 is a creative initiative focused on editions of 100. Kickstarter is running this campaign to help creators reach more supporters. The rules are simple - Create a project with a limited-edition reward capped at 100 backers. That means once we hit 100 backs the campaign is over!

Risks and challenges

We need to hit 100 backers to meet our goal. If we don't I can't deliver on these one of a kind pop culture mini standees. However, if we hit our goal, I'll have the funds to complete all 100 standees and ship them all over the country!
