Anyone who has been following along with the Marauder Kickstarter knows that production is hot and heavy for an upcoming seventh series of excellent weaponry from your favorite 1:18 scale weapons manufacturer.
While we’re all on pins and needles waiting for Series 7 to get unleashed, Marauder has released a fully painted run of Series 6, which is, quite simply, incredible. I know I’ve been a big fan of the colored weapons that Hasbro has released with some of their recent G.I. Joe figures, and these Marauder weapons are honestly amazing.
With a sampling of desert themed colors, excellent shades of gun metal and even a hint of green on the flame thrower, these series 6 weapons are looking better than ever.
If you want my insight on Series 6 in general, check out the Marauder “Gun Runners” Series 6 Review, meanwhile, check out the image gallery below.
After checking out the pictures, head on over to Marauder “Gun Runners” and pick up your own set of fully painted weapons! This is some great stuff.
Shame on me for not talking about this yet…
Somewhat lost in the shuffle of convention news and G.I. Joe: Retaliation stuff is that everyone’s favorite Gun Runner, Marauder, Inc. has fired off another Kickstarter campaign! The funding of his next series of weapons was such a successful endeavor, he is using Kickstarter again, this time for a “Mark II” supplemental set.
This supplemental set includes items that were planned for possible “stretch goals” in the previous campaign, but done on their own, they can be had for a much more modest amount. These items should be familiar to all fans out there! We’ve got a “Pulse” modular accessory, a flashbang accessory, and a laser accessory. You can check out the mirrored images below.
Various different contributions will earn various different levels of these weapons, including multiple weapons in the package, and even painted versions of these guns! As you can see above these are some highly valued and very desirable accessories for all of you G.I. Joe fans out there.
So go ahead and hit up the latest Kickstarter campaign from Marauder “Gun Runners”. He has already achieved his primary goal, but by hitting the stretch goals, many more options are open. See the details at Kickstarter.
Okay, we’re down within the final 24 hours of the Marauder “Gun Runners” Kickstarter campaign and the good news is, Marauder has MET THE KICKSTARTER GOAL! Woo hoo! As of 7:45 this morning, contributions have been met to make this project happen.
Keep in mind, Marauder has plenty of stretch goals as well, and the more money that comes in, the more stuff that will be available to everyone.
As an added thank you, Marauder has also beefed up the rewards for folks contributing at the Pirate Horde or Double Horde levels. This may provide an added incentive to bolster your contribution. The Marauder “Gun Runners” Kickstarter page is right here, and read the details of the latest update below.
Since we might not hit some of the “stretch” goals and we really want to add “more” stuff to the packages….we are ADDING a Complete Series #6 set in “Realistic” paint scheme to the Pirate Hoard level (and 2 to the Double Hoard level) as a “thank you” for those contributing to our project (at NO addtional costs to those who have participated at those levels or will participate at those levels). Also, will be glad to “swap” out the below painted Series #6 set for the “Realistic” painted new items (Picaroon level) or the “Desert Tan” painted new items (again, can make your selection in the after event “survey”).
Here are some painted samples (final designs may vary slightly from items shown):
Here are ALL the items NOW in the $100 Pirate Hoard level:
Thanks again for your support!
Come on, Joe fans! If you love G.I. Joe, I know you love what Marauder “Gun Runners” has done for the hobby over the past 10 years. Some of the best in scale weapons and accessories that the G.I. Joe line (or any 1:18 scale line for that matter) has ever seen.
The Kickstarter project is almost done, and there is still a little ways to go, so let’s all put our money where our mouths are and put it over the top!
Check out the Kickstarter Page right here! There isn’t much time left.
For going several years now I’ve been saying good things about Marauder “Gun Runners”, not just for the excellent product they release, but their outstanding customer service, willingness to accept fan input, and outstanding communication has created a strong and intense fan following.
Now those fans need to step up.
Marauder “Gun Runners” has been receiving lots of customer requests for new product, to the point where they can’t logistically produce their excellent items on a time frame to meet demand. So Marauder John has announced via Facebook that they are launching an exciting Kickstarter Campaign to fund future releases!
Their current goal is $17,000, which would allow them to fund production for 10 ALL NEW items for their “Gun Runners” business, and that includes unpainted weapons as well as pre-painted versions as well.
There will be several “stretch goals” as well, which means for a certain amount over their $17,000 goal, they will add more NEW ITEMS to this assortment. This is our chance, Joe fans. Marauder “Gun Runners” has done amazing stuff for us over the past seven years, we NEED to step up and kick in some funds to help get this new assortment into the production chain. It will only benefit all of us with great new gear and accessories for our favorite 1:18 scale figures.
Hit up the Kickstarter project RIGHT HERE!

Speaking as someone who has known Fred for a very long time, I’ll say that his reviews, posts, and overall G.I. Joe content has been missed over the past several years. Thankfully, it looks like Fred (AKA LeonardoTDragon) is tossing his hat back into the ring and working to get content roaring back to JoeBattleLines.
For a long time JBL has been a mainstay of the G.I. Joe community and I’m proud to say I used that platform to express my love for Sigma 6 back in the Sigma 6 Central days. I’m thrilled to see Fred bringing some more new reviews to the table, and you should be, too.
Check out his update post where he talks about his Joe life a little bit more, and make sure you scope out his Marauder Wave 6 review as well. Good stuff all around.
Welcome back, Fred, we missed you, you old coot.
Man, the first half of the day seemed relatively uneventful, then all hell broke loose! One of the highlights of today’s news for sure was the announcement that Marauder “Gun Runners” Series 6 weapons assortment has been released!
Unfortunately this series has been fraught with production delays, mostly due to the modular components within the series, but thankfully problems have been overcome, and the weapons have been released and are available for purchase. Series 6 comes with a whopping 33 weapons or weapon accessory pieces for full modular action and whatever the focus of your collection is, you should find stuff to love contained within! Check out the links below to pick and choose or buy ‘em all!
Yes, it seems like a very long time since we’ve seen new offerings from the geniuses behind the Marauder, Inc. line of weapons, but it looks like we don’t have to wait much longer. While there were some factory related delays, Marauder, Inc. has started previewing their wave 6 offerings on their Facebook page and holy wow is this stuff looking awesome.
