Fourteen Days left – Animal Warriors of the Kingdom Kickstarter is THIS CLOSE

01-AWOK-Kickstarter

All right, toy fans, crunch time is upon us.  With only a scant fourteen days left, the fantastic looking Animal: Warriors of the Kingdom Kickstarter is within shouting distance of its goal…but it still needs our help!

At just a hair under $50,000 pledged, it needs $15,000 more to make these fun looking figures a reality.  If you’re like me, you’re walking into retail stores these days and asking where all the original toylines are.  Why is everything based on the same licensed properties?

Well, Spero is doing something new, something cool, and something that works with a wealth of other toy lines that you already collect.  Support this thing folks.  I WANT SOME MONKEYS AND WOLVES DANGIT.

Check out and support the Kickstarter, and read the full details below!  These things look fun!

ANIMAL WARRIORS OF THE KINGDOM™ Series One: will consist of Ape, Canine, and Feline warriors, including the series’ main protagonist the albino ape Pale and his vile nemesis Baron Kah Lee. Each figure features 17 points of articulation as well as weapon accessories.

THE FIGURES: are 1:18 scale figures similar to G.I. JoeMarvel UniverseH.A.C.K.SMarauder Task ForceDime Novel LegendsEagle Force Returnsand Zombie Lab figures.

Spero Toys Animal Warriors of the Kingdom set to launch shortly!

Word has started to emerge about a new upcoming action figure line called Animal Warriors of the Kingdom from Spero Toys!

They appear to be shooting to launch a Kickstarter soon and have started a press campaign featuring images from some of their initial release toys.  These action figures look to be humanoid animals, which is pretty much right up my alley, and are darn close to a 4″ scale.  They look to be highly articulated and pretty intriguing from a design perspective.

GeneralsJoes will absolutely be paying some close attention to these, and I’ll let you know as soon as the Kickstarter hits.  Meanwhile, check out some fantastic press photos below, and make sure you’re following Animal Warriors of the Kingdom from Spero Toys on Facebook for all of the latest updates.

Also, head on over to the Spero Toys website for some fantastic concept art and other goodies to take a peek at.

Great looking stuff!
