Coll Snowball is a collector-turned-toy designer, and his first pieces are Hog & The Slot, a pair of idiots, as Coll says. The two are inspied by Coll's trips to New York and Hong Kong that got him hooked on collecting, and the two will be available in 4-inch ZipTup and 8-inch Howler designs, with a DIY version available at first for both. At retail, Ziptup would be £28 and Howler £64, each limited to 500 pieces per style.
Coll's designs look pretty cool, and he's really thought this out, to the point that he's now seeking funding for what essentially amounts to pre-orders for the first run. With 31 days to go, Hog & The Slot has a ways to go, looking for £7,220 to help get these two produced (the CAD designs have been sent to his Hong Kong supplier and pricing has been negotiated). If you'd like to donate and check out the different donor rewards, please head over to the project's Crowdfunder page, and tell your friends if you think they might be interested, of course!
