Troublefish is looking to get produce their limited edition Capt. QUINT vinyl designer toy via a new Kickstarter project. The 8-inch long great white shark gets his name from the ill-fated shark hunter in Jaws (if you needed me to tell you that reference, I'm saddened). Capt. QUINT is the first in a series of nautical-themed, mid-century-technology inspired, retro-styled collectible toys. Debuting with the Late War Camouflage edition in this Kickstarter, additional special editions are planned (Night – black, Arctic – blue/grey, Tropical – sand/yellow, Early War – kelp green/red). The folks from Troublefish have decided to team up with toy manufacturer Pobber to produce the collectible.

Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.
