What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

The concept started a few years ago, a few years later I upgraded the same concept into a small animation, and after working on a few independent designer toys of my own, I decided to try and bring this one to life!

I didn't want this to just be a designer figure, but to have multi-functionality.

The Designer Figure can be used in 3 different ways:

1. A stand-alone designer figure.

2. A planter pot when the beanie comes off.

3. A small secret stash with the beanie hat on.

I feel like aside from being a controversial subject, it has become a bit more acceptable, and wanted to do something to focus more on the humor/positive side of it, but at the same time I don't want to present this as it has been in the past, but with more class, designer feel, and style.

Risks and challenges

I've been working on independent toys for a while now, and the main problem behind this project is funding independently. As an independent artist, I rely a lot on the support of people to be able to produce and create new products.

The production of the actual products and figure, can get a bit pricey, the goal is for the initial payment of everything to get it into production, the extra products.

I want to focus on the quality, and use the top materials and packaging available, and also bring a few of other products to life along with it.

The shipping dates on the rewards are currently estimations, I have been trying to push the project forward as much as possible on my own, and have a prototype mold already made, so hoping to move the project a bit faster then listed! :D - ideally a 4.20.18 would be amazing! But this type of sculpture projects always have unexpected turns that could delay things.
