New G.I. Joe book on Kickstarter looks at the marketing of Real American Hero

With the plethora of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero books hitting Kickstarter in recent years, there’s been an awesome wealth of content available for us long time fans.  One avenue that hasn’t been fully explored, however, is the advertising and marketing side of things, but Phil Reed from has that covered.

The Kickstarter for Modern Army Action Figures was just recently launched and explores the great advertising of vintage Real American Hero product.  One would argue a huge amount of G.I. Joe’s success in the 80’s was due to its unique look at marketing and advertising, and Phil’s got some great stuff here.

Go check out the book on Kickstarter and throw some support its way!

Dream Concept’s Zombie Lab Kickstarter is closer than you think…

To say I’m excited for the upcoming Zombie Lab Kickstarter would be a dramatic understatement.  Civilian figures, mutated undead, and fully compatible with the HACKS articulation system?

Uhhh… SOLD.

Over on their Facebook page, Dream Concept has begun posting fantastic images of the upcoming figures in the first  few waves, and they look mind blowing.  It certainly seems as if there will be something here for everyone, even if you’re not a fan of the walking dead.

Keep watching Dream Concept on Facebook as well as the Zombie Lab Facebook group, and here are some of those images below.

EDIT – If you want to know the story behind this new Zombie Lab action figure series, be sure to check out where they are posting some terrific artwork and prose giving some background to this exciting looking line.
