Capt QUINT is a limited edition vinyl designer toy. He’s eight inches long, stylized, and also happens to be a great white shark. His name is ironically credited to the ill-fated shark hunter (portrayed by the late Robert Shaw) of Steven Spielberg’s 1975 Jaws.


Featuring the classic lines from the dawn of jet aviation, Capt QUINT is finished in the distinct colors and markings of mid-century fighters. Troisch has researched the nuances of designer toy production, and gravitated towards the largely industrialized vinyl production, allowing for consistent quality, superior durability, and longevity, without the artist ever surrendering control over the output. To stay true to the urban vinyl culture, a limited number of collectible pieces are scheduled for public release.
