Jingle All The Way is a Christmas movie that I personally love. I don’t know what it is, but I’ll watch it every time it’s on. The story centers around a fictional hot Christmas item called Turboman. Fans of the film have long wanted an exact copy of the Turboman figure seen in the film. Thanks to the magic of Kickstarter, that is a very real possibility. A new Kickstarter is live to create an exact replica of the Turboman 14.5″ tall figure from the film, using 3D scans of the original prototype.
“It’s Turbo Time!”
Do you remember Turboman doll from the holiday film Jingle All The Way? In 1996 he was the hottest Christmas toy ever! When I was a kid, I dreamed of having my very own, but sadly my dream never camr true… Because he was a fictional toy only for film.
I wanted to change that and bring the Turbo Man toy to fans a collectors alike. Two years ago I found the ownner of original prop used in the film, I thought up a great idea.Today we can make everything with the great technology 3D scanning and printing, So I decided to reproduce the Turboman action figure to cereblate the 20th anniversary of the film.
I plan to scan 3D modeling data of the original prop, which has no articulation. So I need enlist the work of a 3D modeler to digitally sculpt the joint for proper articulation.
The cost to produce a 14″ prototype is quite high, so I turn to you all in hopes to see this dream become reality .please review a quick video showcasing the 3D model. As far as the pricing it is $130 plus shipping per figure. The price you spend this time is the cost for getting your very own Turboman, so there is no additional fee except shipping.
If you love 90’s toy, action figure, or prop replica, don’t miss this chance!
The project needs to hit $13,000 by January 12, 2017. It currently sits just a little below $30,000 pledged. To be guaranteed a Turboman, backers must pledge $130 or more. You can check out the Kickstarter by Clicking Here.
