ABOUT - DIY BOXCAT BLACK

"We can gain a great inspiration sometimes from something small and plain." -RATO KIM

BOXCAT is the adorable, original design by Rato Kim. Licensed, Produced, and Developed by Discordia Merchandising.

DIY BOXCAT BLACK is a Vinyl Art Toy Platform. The 4th DIY BOXCAT Colorway produced in Rotocast Vinyl form, for the U.S. Market.

DIY BOXCAT BLACK final dimensions Approx. 5L X 4.8T X 3.6W INCHES. / 12.7L X 12.19T X 9.14W CM. [Weight TBD] Safe Hollow Rotocast Vinyl. Projected Product delivery is set for April 2018.

DIY BOXCAT IS ALREADY IN PRODUCTION

We already developed the Mold and the First Colorways of this Custom Platform, are already being pulled. See previous Kickstarter Here: LINK

DIY BOXCAT BLACK is simply being added to the production schedule queue and will be pulled after the first 3 colorways are made. A Limited Run of ONLY 100 will be available for Pre-Order through this MAKE 100 Kickstarter.

DIY BOXCAT BLACK is made Made In Mexico then Boxed and Shipped from the USA straight to you. Product Fulfillment will be very swift.

BONUS: All Reward levels will grant the Supporter a Free Issue of Clutter Magazine, the finest guide to the Designer Toy Scene, and the minds behind the Designer Toy Awards.

ABOUT THE ARTIST RATO KIM

She is a South Korean Designer Toy Artist who designs and makes Resin Art Toys by hand. She is also a pretty good illustrator of cute things. She likes cosplay and traveling.

Rato Kim has customized BOXCAT into many different styles of Rare, Limited, hand made Resin Editions. Most notably is the BREADCAT with its many variations. Other Versions include: HONEYCAT, JEWELRYCAT, ICECREAMCAT, DINOCAT, GINGERCAT, NIGHTMARECAT, WOODCAT, MELLONCAT, BEECAT, and many more!

The 2017 BOXCAT Custom Exhibition featured 16 Designer Toy Artists redesigning BOXCAT into all new custom forms. Rato Kim was recently Nominated for 2 Designer Toy Awards for BEST RESIN TOY and TOY ARTIST OF THE YEAR in early 2017.

ABOUT DISCORDIA MERCHANDISING

We are Starr Mignon and Gavriel Discordia of: www.DiscordiaMerchandising.com & www.DiscordiaCultureShop.com

As a Designer Toy Producer we have commissioned exclusive colorways of existing Designer Toys with Mighty Jaxx, TopzToy, and KKAMoxo. And thus far have developed Exclusive Enamel Pins for Colus, Monster Little, and Suckadelic.

We also like to tour around in our cool van and vend Designer Toys at various conventions. We spend our spare time sipping Tang while calculating launch trajectories.

PAST PROJECTS

Our First Kickstarter: DIY Spray Can Vinyl Toy was funded in 9 days last June. We have already received product, boxed, and delivered on all Rewards to all Supporters. Retail and Wholesale is available on Discordia Culture Shop.

And of course DIY BOXCAT in Standard White, Green Glow and Prototype Blue was funded in only 5 days. That Kickstarter Pre-Order just ended Jan 5th. When we saw the call for the MAKE/100 Project on Kickstarter we thought that was the perfect way for Discordia Merchandising to launch the DIY BOXCAT BLACK colorway.

A DIFFERENT KIND OF KICKSTARTER

Just like all our Kickstarter Pre-Orders, Discordia Merchandising has already taken care of all preliminary expenses. This is why our goal is so incredibly low. The Mold has been made and other DIY BOXCAT colorways already being pulled at the factory starting this month!

We are not asking you to chip in on our Development, Design, Model, Prototype, or Mold expenses. We already got those costs out of the way. We wouldn't expect the public to Support a project we haven't made an equal investment in ourselves. That's just how we work at Discordia Merchandising.

With this Kickstarter you know the DIY BOXCAT BLACK is already an unquestionable reality and you will be seeing near immediate results with Reward Fulfillment.

Boxes are Here!

CONCLUSION

Pre-Order your DIY BOXCAT BLACK, and Share this Project across social media. Show your Support for Rato Kim, and let others know this DIY platform exists. It is Social Media Momentum that makes all good Kickstarter projects a success. We are counting on you!

We love the BOXCAT platform! We saw the potential for the design as a new Platform Toy a year before Rato Kim was twice nominated for a Designer Toy Award. We are happy to be the ones to bring this delightful form to the U.S. for the first time, and can't wait to see what Artists make of it. We are sure it's going to be a wonderful journey!

With Respect and Gratitude, Gavriel, Starr, and Rato Kim, www.DiscordiaMerchandising.com
