Like Sigma 6 and Xevoz? You’ll LOVE this Kickstarter!

This isn’t strictly G.I. Joe news, but I couldn’t help but talk about it, anyway.

I think we all realize that Sigma 6 as it was known is most likely a dead concept at Hasbro.  While many would celebrate that, I lament its place in the crypts, and I was really excited to find out that the spiritual founders of Sigma 6 and Xevoz are starting a new project!

The Hero Project is an endeavor from Tucker and Wayne from Dynamo Development Labs, and they were both the lifeblood of Sigma 6 and Xevoz, and you can really tell by the video shown on their Kickstarter page.  The goal of these fine gentlemen is to fund a new action figure toyline, in the 8″ scale, with body design and accessory design very familiar to Sigma 6 fans.  Pulling heroes from the annals of history, the Hero Project looks to earn some financial backing, enough to hopefully support this ambitious endeavor.

I happily pledged my money for this cause, and hope fellow Sigma 6 buffs will do the same.  Perhaps now that many Joe fans are looking in the rear view mirror and can appreciate just how revolutionary and fun the Sigma 6 line was, they can get behind this project to bring more toys in that awesome format to market.

Check out the Hero Project on Kickstarter, and take a peek at the video below.

  1. Thanks for the post. The feedback and goodwill so far has been overwhelming! We hope both Sigma and Xevoz fans will love this. Drop us a line and let us know what you think!

  2. Thanks for posting this Justin! The idea is awesome and the designs look great. I put in my donation and posted over on the GeekDad Facebook page. I hope this gets full funding, I would love to see a whole series of Sigma 6-like cultural heroes. Rama and Spirit Iron-Knife could be an unstoppable “Indian archer” team. I would love to see some Greek, Roman, Chinese or American folk heroes. -DJ in Rhode Island

  3. I’ll defiantly pledge some cash after my paycheck. I’m not going to lie the Celtic and Arabic art look more awesome than Rama. I hope this line make it that far down the line.

  4. I am in love with this line already. I will contribute as much as I can manage. Thanks for bringing this to our attention Justin. I will spread the word as much as I can.

  5. It’s a great idea, but I don’t think it’ll get funded. The figure is to much of a niche character (which I don’t like. The Celt &/or Viking would get me to back it). It should have been something more generic to get more backers

  6. Have to admit I’m a bit surprised by their choice… a bit obscure. Someone more “marketable” like Herakles/Hercules, Sinbad, King Arthur, etc.
    I’m sure Rama is fascinating but he ends up looking kinda like a Na’Vi.

  7. Whereas i understand posting this due to its relation to joe and sigma 6, I have to say it seems like a bit of a dead concept to me. That scale was not bad, but right now would likely be considered too expensive, or at least i’d imagine, not that profitable. Frankly, I wasn’t that big of a fan of Sigma 6 either. I bought a few because of the real american hero joe drought, but i don’t think i’d get back into that even if the small joes disappeared again. nothing personal.

  8. I definitely plan to pledge and hope to see this happen. I didn’t care for Sigma Six but I flat out love the concept of turning cultural heroes into action figures. I’m not a huge fan of Rama per se, BUT – if funding it means that a Queztlcoatl, Beowulf, or, if I really want to be wishful, a Cuchulainn, Lugh Lamfada, or Fionn MacCumhaill, well, it’ll be thirty dollars well spent.

  9. I’ll toss in my support in the morning. Gotta think about how much I want to do. This could be a really sweet line. I imagine it’d be internet only, but that really is the direction of toys these days, and I’m cool with that.
