Eagle Force Trading Card Kickstarter announces blockbuster stretch goal

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.

Latest Eagle Force Returns figure reveal looks deadly!

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.

Eagle Force Returns General Brown revealed

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!

Eagle Force Stryker reveal emphasizes support for Adventure People

Zica Toys recently relaunched their Adventure People Kickstarter, and is making some great progress, already accumulating over $15,000 of their $25,000 goal. This fun looking Kickstarter includes some nostalgia based characters like Captain Action and Action Jackson, as well as some different variations of those figures.

Meanwhile, over on the Eagle Force Returns Facebook page, Fresh Monkey Fiction has revealed the first look at Stryker, one of the new characters from the upcoming Eagle Force line. One thing to note with this first reveal is that he’s using some Adventure People parts. Fresh Monkey Fiction noted that the success of the Adventure People Kickstarter could go a long way towards ensuring that Eagle Force has access to their library of tooling to spin out some great looking figures like this.

I think Stryker looks pretty great, and I know with the Adventure People’s new Kickstarter methodology, I’ll be pledging some support that way as well.

Keep watching the Eagle Force Returns Facebook page for the latest updates, and if you like what you see there, consider pledging towards the Adventure People Kickstarter, too!

Exclusive First Look at a grizzled Captain Eagle from the return of Eagle Force!

When the whispers first came of a return of 1980s Mego property Eagle Force, I was intrigued.  Debuting in the early 80’s the original Eagle Force was a die cast line of 2.5″ action figures that unfortunately hit retail just as Mego was going under, and as such, never had a chance to truly reach their potential.

There is some crossover appeal between Eagle Force and G.I. Joe, as various customs have appeared throughout the community celebrating those die cast figures.  But honestly, I hadn’t had an attachment to them as a child, so while I was intrigued, that’s about as far as it went.

Then the rumors started circulating that they would be 4″ military figures, and would feature modern construction and be highly articulated.  Okay, my “intrigue” just went full on into “anticipation”.

Finally, the word came out that not only would Eagle Force’s return feature a 4″ modern military aesthetic, but they would also be designed and sculpted by Boss Fight Studio?  Well, if there’s a stronger word than “anticipation” I now had it.  I’ve been eagerly camped out at the Eagle Force Returns Facebook Page, just waiting for some new information to hit and now I’m very proud to say, thanks to the folks behind Fresh Monkey Fiction, I’ve been allowed to reveal the first ever look at Captain Eagle from the exciting Eagle Force return!

To say that he’s everything I hoped for would be a massive understatement.  This is a guy who has been through the ringer and has come back for more.  It’s immediately apparent that RIOT has made their presence known again, and Captain Eagle must come back into action to do battle for the safety of the world!

A joint venture between Fresh Monkey Fiction and Zica Toys, with design and sculpting by Boss Fight Studio, the return of Eagle Force certainly looks like something to celebrate in 2015!  Do what I’ve been doing and set up shop at the Eagle Force Returns Facebook Page and at EagleForceReturns.com and keep those eyes peeled, because if this first piece of concept art is any indication, we are in for one hell of a ride next year.  The Kickstarter will be launching in Q2 of 2015, and I’m already starting to save my pennies.

Fresh Monkey Fiction Amazing Heroes Kickstarter… and something on the horizon?

I know there has been a lot of Kickstarter talk with both Marauder and Vitruvian HACKS taking over conversation for a good few months, but there is a pretty cool action figure Kickstarter campaign currently going on right now from the folks at Fresh Monkey Fiction.

Fans of action figures in the 80s will no doubt appreciate the cool retro feel of the figures, and they’ve done a great job tapping into the wealth of public domain comic and pulp heroes over the past several years. They’ve got a little ways to go still to reach their goal, but it’s a really neat concept, and I’m going to toss some support their way.

Almost as interesting as the current project, though, is that they have something else on the horizon… something that might just be up a G.I. Joe fan’s alley. Earlier today, the Fresh Monkey Fiction folks Tweeted an image at me:

I questioned them on it a bit, and got the following Tweet in response:

Now that’s certain to catch some attention. What do you think? Check out the Amazing Heroes Kickstarter and then stay tuned, looks like more fun stuff is set to follow it!
