We’ve been following the progress of Zica Toys‘ Captain Action Kickstarter preparation ever since they first announced it a while ago, and this latest update has us pretty excited!
Over on their Facebook page, Zica has revealed the first resin versions of Captain Action, Captain Evil, and Action Jackson, a recently revealed part of their upcoming Kickstarter!
With figures designed by Boss Fight Studio, these Captain Action toys look like a great blend between modern stylings and vintage aesthetic. I’m digging what I’m seeing so far.
Keep watching the Zica Toys Facebook Page for updates, and believe me, we’ll be letting you know when the Kickstarter is up and running.
Yeah, this is a big ‘un. For our landmark 100th episode of What’s on Joe Mind, we wanted to pull out all the stops, but I don’t think any of us envisioned the result would be a close to five hour marathon of G.I. Joe talk!
All that being said, there is something here for everyone. We talk to Bill and Craig from Fresh Monkey Fiction and Zica Toys about the Eagle Force Returns and Captain Action Kickstarter…and we break a special bit of news about them as well!
Along the way, we invite Cobra Commander himself to read from the mailbag, take listener calls, and break down all the latest (as of a month ago) news!
As always, find the latest episode at Podbean, and it’s also embedded below. Show Notes are after the break.
Through the Kickstarter craze of 2014 we heard about two properties primed for relaunch in 2015, both of which had Boss Fight Studio along for the ride. Both Eagle Force and Captain Action are bracing for Kickstarter launches this year, and the folks from Zica Toys have posted a new image of Captain Action with his trusty vehicle, the Silver Streak.
According to the Zica Toys Facebook Page, we should be expecting the Kickstarter to launch “soon”.
Check out the image below, and let’s get ready for an exciting year!
Over the past several months, Zica Toys has been releasing many vintage themed action figures, with the Six Million Dollar Man toys getting the most mainstream attention (that I’ve seen).
A while ago, I had reported that they had obtained the license for Captain Action, and had said they would be producing vintage style figures, in the same vein as the old school G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toys. Well, obviously this caught my eye, and many other eyes as well.
For the first time, over on their Facebook page, Zica Toys has revealed a digital image of this upcoming Captain Action figure, which does look reminiscent of the G.I. Joe figures of old, though the waist joint certainly doesn’t quite look the same. Also, there is no familiar “Swivel Arm Battle Grip”, however, there is a swivel above the bicep/tricep according to Zica Toys. The figure will also apparently have double jointed knees and elbows, though. Check out the digital image below, and be sure to keep watching the Zica Toys Facebook Page for any updates!
