When it was announced that the New Jersey Collectors Con would be billed as a “Boss Fight Launch Party” I pretty much knew I had to be there. Seven hours of driving, through some of the nastiest traffic on the Eastern seaboard on Friday… and it didn’t let me down. Not a single bit. The entire weekend was everything it was billed as and more with fantastic toys, excellent friends, and two action-packed days of action figure overload. Who could ask for more?
Boss Fight Studio was in attendance and brought a bunch of cool surprises, and many of the items shown are up for pre-order on BossFightShop.com!
First and foremost, they debuted some new figures:
Series 02 – Wave 3
- Lord Vehemous (Dark Mage)
- Aspen (Spring Elf)
- Blasted Land Female Orc
- Lance Steelblade (King and commander of the Knights of Accord)
These four figures will be a part of the third wave of Series 02 figures from the fantasy line, using a mixture of existing and new tooling and all of them come with secondary head sculpts!
Bucky O’Hare Wave 2
- Stealth Bucky
- Astral Projection Jenny
- Deadeye Duck
Along with the three figures slated for Wave 2, we got a shadowed peek at a potential release of the Storm Toad Trooper, currently penciled in for Spring, 2018! Larry Hama will also be writing brand new bio cards for these figures, the first time Bucky fiction will be developed and written in many, many years.
Vitruvian HACKS Upcoming Release (specific assortment not revealed)
Cerisier was also called the “Cherry Blossom Elf” and “Sakura Branch Elf” and is slated for an upcoming release, though the means and the method for that release were not made immediately clear. A female Gargoyle figure was also shown during the Boss Fight presentation, though her specific assortment was not shared either. At this point, the Horse pictured with the deluxe accessory kits is a proof of concept, but they’re not sure exactly how that particular item will make it to collectors’ hands.
Series 02 Wave 04 (Concept Art Only)
- Twylla (Faerie)
During their presentation on upcoming product, Boss Fight revealed their line up for the fourth wave of Series 02 figures, including those four figures above. I apologize about the quality of the image above, we are working to get access to something with a bit better quality.
Series 03 Space Figures (Concept Art Only)
- Kinsey London
- Empress Medusa
- Cyber Medic
- Sniper Droid
- Will McCloud
- Antrox Trooper
- A’Vast Ye
- Cyber Police
Slated for release after the Series 02 fantasy figures, the third series of Vitruvian HACKS will feature space themed figures and those figures look great! Stonefist will make an appearance in the third series as well as Medusa (well her head anyway) and a wealth of other cool looking robots and pulpy space troopers. Good stuff.
Deluxe Accessory Kits
- Gladiator Male
- Gladiator Female
These two accessory kits include fully painted and decoed accessories as well as a full arm that can be swapped out to give a great armored look. There are more of these deluxe accessory kits in the planning stages, so more to come here!
Boss Fight also had physical samples of Series 02 Wave 2 and their upcoming Mini-Kits, both of which continue to look absolutely incredible!
But that wasn’t all…
And of course the immeasurable Dave Proctor built a full blown castle diorama for display and this thing was a.m.a.z.i.n.g. It had to truly be seen to be believed, a mammoth building with awesome figures, both straight releases and customs really showing the immense versatility of the line.
It was such an amazing weekend with visual overload and so much great stuff to see. If you love what you see as much as I did, make sure you are showing that love over at BossFightShop.com by pre-ordering their product!
