Huge thanks to YoJoe staffer Phil for making the rounds on the convention floor today and agreeing to grab some better images of the Marauder Task Force, Eagle Force, Legends of the West and Animal Warriors of the Kingdom figures that were revealed yesterday!
There’s a ton of great stuff being shown during JoeCon, and you can check out some fantastic images below. Please check out the YoJoe G.I. Joe Convention 2016 Photo Galleries as well for some other great images straight from Loveland, Colorado!
Big kudos to Phil and the YoJoe team for their coverage. Expect them to be all over the Hasbro Team presentation at 11am Mountain/1pm Central TODAY!

The Hasbro reveals haven’t quite materialized yet (should be today!) but still exciting news out of JoeCon for Friday.
Over at the Broken Arrow toys booth, some brand spanking new Eagle Force Returns reveals have emerged! And not just figures, but actual playset items as well. Images have been posted over at HissTank.com and some really awesome stuff coming.
I’ve mirrored the images below… but dude…check out the Eagle Island! Holy cow.
Also, over on JoeCustoms, Joe Harris, who has been working with Fresh Monkey on some Eagle Force concepts, has posted some fantastic up close images of the template for the communications dish as well as a nice look at the Eagle Island playset. I’m really loving how this line is coming together and will be earmarking some serious cash for the upcoming Kickstarter.
We are officially in the final throws of the Eagle Force Trading Card Kickstarter, but man what a run! For a Kickstarter that set its modest goal at $700, things have quickly accelerated, and we sit here with the total pledge at over $11,000! Huge kudos to the folks at Fresh Monkey Fiction for pulling this off in such emphatic fashion.
The RIOT Stealth Pilot figure has been unlocked so please, anyone who wants that figure make sure you not only add the funds but CHANGE YOUR PLEDGE LEVEL. You don’t want to miss that figure!
Also, I’m not sure if I mentioned it here yet or not, but there are some spectacular additional stretch goal incentives with a great new glider from friend of GeneralsJoes D&J Toys!
Meanwhile, over on Kastor’s Korner, we get a sneak peek at another upcoming figure from the Eagle Force Returns soon to be launched Kickstarter event! The Eagle Force Officer! Check out that image below.
There’s only about 12 hours left to throw some support at the trading card Kickstarter. Keep it coming!
A couple of pieces of Eagle Force related news to share this morning.
First and foremost, since I posted the information yesterday, Fresh Monkey Fiction has adjusted the requirements of the Eagle Force RIOT Pilot stretch goal so that anyone who has pledged $60 or more will receive the RIOT Pilot (as long as the campaign hits $10,000)! That’s a great adjustment and hopefully will draw more folks to the Kickstarter to get in on the ground floor for not just the Eagle Force trading cards, but also the Eagle Force Returns toy line! They are under $4,000 to go to hit that threshold, so if enough people want the Pilot, we should be able to get there in no time.
Along with this, The Fwoosh has an exclusive figure reveal, too, showing off the RIOT “Firebug” a flamethrower trooper to support the Fireball character. An awesome new addition to the RIOT terrorist team, to be sure.
Eagle Force ls promising to be a very impressive showing and I will be watching for the Kickstarter closely.
The Eagle Force Trading Card Kickstarter has entered the home stretch, with only nine days left to go, and Fresh Monkey Fiction has revealed an incredible new stretch goal!
If the Kickstarter hits a $10,000 threshold, everyone who pledges $75 or more will get an extremely limited Eagle Force Returns action figure!
The R.I.O.T. Pilot is an Air Assault Stealth Trooper and is limited to only 200 pieces. Anyone who wants a complete collection of Eagle Force Returns action figures needs to step up to the plate.
Meanwhile, I’ll be upping my own pledge as well. Let’s try and make this happen.
Check out the Eagle Force Trading Card Kickstarter here, and see the image of the RIOT Pilot below.
Over at Action Figure Insider, a new sneak peek at an upcoming Eagle Force Returns figure has been shown, and it looks like it just might be someone new, but with some key connections to the past.
The nefarious RIOT assassin “Hornet” is the latest member of the evil terrorist organization within the Eagle Force universe, and I have to admit he’s looking pretty striking. A great yellow and black paint scheme highlights his cool specialty, and there’s even a bio card shown. Apparently Hornet and Kayo have a history…
Check out the images below and see the reveal at Action Figure Insider.
As the Eagle Force Trading Cards Kickstarter continues steamrolling through stretch goals, HISSTank.com has revealed the latest look at an upcoming figure for the Eagle Force Returns action figure Kickstarter!
General Brown will be joining the Eagle Force roster! Back in the 80s, Sgt. Brown was a key player on the Eagle Force team, and it looks like he’s risen in rank since then. Check out HISSTank.com, and also take a look below at all of the figures who have been revealed so far. I’m greatly looking forward to this Kickstarter this summer. Should be fun!
How, it’s been a crazy week for fans of Eagle Force!
Last Sunday, a new Kickstarter was launched for a fantastic looking set of Eagle Force trading cards. I’m very proud and humbled to announce that I have contributed text to a number of the cards, and am really excited to see that people seem thrilled with the Kickstarter.
It blew past it’s goal in around 24 hours or less and continues to pick up steam to the point where Fresh Monkey Fiction is about to announce a SEVENTH stretch goal! Already, a number of different stretch goals have been announced, such as PDF’s of the Eagle Force comics, special exclusive metal card, and we’ve gotten a surprise reveal of an upcoming Eagle Force Returns figure!
That figure is a terrific looking RIOT Shock Trooper, which you can check out below.
Meanwhile, if you haven’t supported the Eagle Force Trading Card Kickstarter, please do so! There are still some really cool stretch goals in the works that should make it very much worth your while. As it is, you’re already getting a ton of bang for your buck.
Thanks for everyone’s support!
A very cool surprise this Sunday morning as Fresh Monkey Fiction has announced a Kickstarter for a very cool looking Eagle Force Returns trading card set.
With an exceedingly affordable $5.00 buy in (for a set of the cards in digital format only) to very awesome exclusive metal cards, this looks like a really fun way to get well versed in your Eagle Force history before the actual action figure Kickstarter goes live this summer.
Terrific artwork, both vintage and modern from original Eagle Force artist Paul Kirchner, plus a chance for a signed card an an exclusive reveal of a NEW figure for the upcoming Kickstarter campaign. Join me in supporting this great endeavor. I’m getting pretty fired up for Eagle Force this summer, and this is a great way to get involved in the brand and get an idea of the history behind it.
Over on the west coast, Wondercon is happening now and Fresh Monkey Fiction is making an appearance, revealing two more exciting Eagle Force figures leading up their Kickstarter!
The Eagle Force trooper and RIOT operative “Fireball” have been shown, along with an actual test shot of Captain Eagle and a nice sampling of promotional material. Check out the Eagle Force Returns page for details, and I’ve mirrored a few images below.
To date we have seen five different reveals for upcoming figures, including Captain Eagle, Stryker, Jr., and the Eagle Force Trooper on the good side, with Fireball and RIOT Commando on the bad side. To play a little “catch up” here are all the official reveals to date (beyond concept art):
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m getting pretty excited to see these take shape. Keep watching Eagle Force Returns on Facebook for the latest!
