Kevin Smith & Graphitti Designs: Release the "Clerks II" Inaction Figures

In 2003, toymaker Graphitti Designs released a series of action figures based off writer/director Kevin Smith's 1994 indie film, "Clerks". More precisely, these figures were based off the 2000 spinoff cartoon series, "Clerks: the Animated Series", and featured zero points of articulation (hence, "Inaction Figures"). By all accounts, these were great toys, and were well-received in the market. In the years that followed, most of Kevin Smith's "Askewniverse" films were granted a set of Inaction Figures, culminating in the 2006 release of the "Chasing Amy" series. But 2006 also saw the release of an unexpected entry into the Askewniverse movie canon: "Clerks II", arguably one of Kevin Smith's greatest films. Naturally, fans of the "Inaction" line were eager to add another wave of toys to their collections. Kevin Smith teased this inevitable release several times, pledging the "Clerks II" figures would drop with his upcoming film, "Clerks 3". He even posted images of the prototypes, revealing exactly how far along the design process was. But a decade passed, "Clerks 3" died in development hell, and the "Clerks II" Inaction Figures have been in toy-limbo ever since. What we propose: • Crowdfund the release of the "Clerks II" Inaction Figures similar to how Hasbro crowdfunded the "Jabba's Sail Barge" toy. • Set a target number of pledges and allow backers to prepay. If necessary, raise the price-per-figure to maximize the chance of the run meeting adequate backing. • If successful, consider this approach to expand the line further. I can't believe we never got a T.S. Quint, Suzanne, or Mr. Svenning Inaction Figure. Thank you!

Petition to Mattel

Petition to Barbie: Chloe Kim Doll Snowboarder on sale

Hey! When we hear Barbie we think about beautiful dolls, and they are teachers, moms, babysitters, mermaids, fairies, and more. Barbie brand is changing perspectives, they are making beautiful and real dolls, and kids are playing with them and we are seeing an amazing change. Little kids are now seeing different bodies, proffessions and women inspiration.  They made an amazing movement. They launched a Barbie collection called Sheroes. Beautiful and inspirational women are now dolls.  Sheroes have: Frida Kahlo, Amelia Earhart, Katherine Johnson, Misty Copeland, Ashley Graham, Hélène Darroze, Hui Ruoqi, Gabby Douglas, Martyna Wojciechowska, Sara Gama, Xiaotong Guan, Ava Duvernay, Leyla Piedayesh, Yuan Yuan Tan, Bindi Irwin, Nicola Adams Obe, Ibtihaj Muhammad, Patty Jenkins, and CHLOE KIM.  Those amazing women inspire people and they changed social perspective. Artists, Filmmakers, Conservationists, Fencing Players, Volleyball Players, Models, Aviators, Ballerinas, Chefs, Mathematicians and Physicists, Gymnastics, Journalists, Actresses, Designers and Snowboarders.  All of those women inspire us as adult women, young women, old women and inspire little Kids and Men. We are not sure why Barbie didn’t release all of those amazing and precious inspirational women, but we are in love with Snowboarder Chloe Kim Doll.  Chloe Kim is an American Snowboarder that became the youngest woman to win an Olympic Snowboarding medal, she was seventeen and we feel so proud and excited.  Please, we beg you to sign this petition and see if Mattel can release Chloe Kim Doll to stores. We want little kids play with those amazing role models, and we understeand that they can’t launch all of them. But we can make a difference with Chloe Kim Doll.  It’s fine that they decide to put Mermaids and Fairies and fictional characters on sale but they made an amazing collection of real role models and we want our little kids know about their amazing and real stories,  they launched Career Dolls for example and that was so incredible, why not launch all of these Real and Hardworking Women?.
