Kickstarter: Big Licker from Matt Jones
Designer toy artist Matt Jones (Lunartik) initially dreamt up the idea for the Big Licker back in 2006. Now, nine years later, he's taking to Kickstarter to round up enough support and funds to get the 12-inch long piece produced as a rotocast vinyl figure. The Big Licker will have a matte grey body, stand on four black matte finished legs, and have a big red glossy tongue.
The plan is to release 150 pieces of the Classic Big Licker, which Matt will sign and number. There will be 120 pieces of the D.I.Y Big Licker in white vinyl for artists/designers to customize. The funding level for the D.I.Y. is around $54, while the Classic is about $69. Also, there's a $224 funding level that includes both Big Lickers plus one that Matt has doodled on. (All of the money amount look strange because they've been converted from pounds to dollars)
This project will only be funded if at least $7,713 is pledged by Wednesday, October 14th 2015 at 3:38AM ET.
