This is Tim from Fantasy Coin. As you may know, we are trying to get the Obey Henry plush tiger created. We have already received the license from Scott Johnson and have the final version (and tags) ready. It is currently going through United States and EU safety standard testing. After this, we are clear for mass production.
Along the way, we encountered a few unexpected expenses that threaten this projects completion. We are trying our best to get these out before the holidays but we are a little short on the funds we need to complete the project.
We want to see these plushies created just as much as you do so we decided to create this Kickstarter campaign so that we can offer things like free shipping and some Henry's that have been signed by Scott.
Our manufacturers are ready to go as soon as the safety standards are passed and they receive payment. Our distribution channels are ready to receive them and so are we. The only thing left is your assistance. So check out the rewards and let us know if we can do anything for you in the mean-time.
The art that this plush toy was designed from was the original "Henry" art Scott Johnson used. As with any art, there can be slight variances in small details so we combined all the art into one plush toy.
The manufacturing of Henry will be professionally done by Dongguan Fuyi Toys in China. Each Henry will be made to the Fantasy Coin standard of quality that you have come to expect. We are fans and members of the Frogpants community so we want to ensure that the Obey Henry property recieves proper treatment.
Here are a few pictures of the Obey Henry prototype:
This tag will have the "Obey Henry" font found on the sticker art. Location is
Here is Henry with some other plushies to give you an idea of his size, which is 8" tall.
Risks and challenges
Time in shipment: We are using ocean freight so we can keep costs to you down and that can take a while but we expect to get them in before the holidays.
Hold up at Customs: We are working with our warehouse and their import/export broker to ensure there is no delay through customs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
