Kickstarter: Twitturd – The MOST Polished Presidential Figure Ever

Artist Casey Latiolais and Kevin Kelly (SNAFU Studio) are turning the iconic giant combover-wearing rooster into a vinyl toy. The Twitturd vinyl toy - The MOST Polished Presidential Figure Ever - is currently being funded via a Kickstarter campaign.

This vinyl toy comes in two pieces: potty and poultry. Together, they stand approximately 6 inches tall. Also, the bird can perch sans‑commode on any surface. Twitturd comes in two stately color-ways, to cover both white‑collar and blue‑collar bases. 

There are plenty of backing options available. If you're looking to pick one of the vinyl figures up, check out the $25.00 level. The duo (or deuce) is available at the $52.00 level. Plus, they have campaign t-shirts and hats available at various levels.

This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Friday, November 16th 2018 at 2:46PM ET.

As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. 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 all Kickstarters with caution.

KBB has well over 140 characters, from the ever popular Kung-Fu Chicken Noodle to the forgotten Vegan Vampire. Series 1 will consist of 11 characters, including: Dr. CubeAstroroach (an original character never seen in the ring), RoBox, French Toast, Cycloptopuss, Phyden, Silver Potato, Pedro Plaintain, Sky Deviler Mother, Sky Deviler Daughter, and Dr. Cube Minion
