Greg "Craola" Simkins is teaming up with the folks over at 3DRetro to bring Ralf, the White Knight, to vinyl life. Ralf is the main character in Craola's future stop motion animation, which he and C4toons is currently running a Kickstarter for, in order to raise the base funding for the project. Craola is not new to the vinyl toy world, with his work appearing on several production toys, including a line of his own characters. From the very beginning of the Kickstarter launch and even with the teaser pics posted by Craola, collectors have been hoping for the chance at the possibility of a vinyl toy of one or more characters set to appear in the Mook(term coined for this project to mean Movie and accompanying book). It appears that Ralf(and hopefully more characters) is going to be a vinyl toy which everyone will be able to have and adore in the future. Even as a rough concept, the implications of what the final product will look like is fantastic. This could be the first in a line of characters from the future "I'm Scared" movie.
Ralf the vinyl toy is a huge undertaking, especially from a drawn concept, which was created for a project that is still in it's early stages. For many, the assumption is that the process to create a toy from concept to final product is something simple and the prices should reflect that. What many people should understand, is that in order to make most toys viable and affordable, multiple colorways is something that will always be discussed. Having a single colorway edition of 1200 for any vinyl toy is something that is not always the best option, especially when it comes to designer toys and the small niche it represents in the grand scheme of all things considered art and toys.
If you haven't done so already, please make a pledge or just spread the word to everyone you know. Spreading the word is just as good as pledging. Let's all make "I'm Scared" the movie happen!
