Marauder Gun-Runners announced today that their upcoming Kickstarter for Marauder Task Force WWII should launch this week. Marauder’s has been behind many successful Kickstarters such as the Marauder’s “Mark II”, the Marauder Task Force and the Marauder Task Force Valkyries to name a few. They have always delivered very high end, detailed and highly articulated action figures and this Kickstarter looks like it will not disappoint. The mock ups that Marauder’s have shown thus far are fantastic looking and the prototype that they showed off yesterday is amazing. Continue to check back for further details as they become available or check out Marauder “Gun-Runners” Facebook page.

Here is the prototype for the upcoming Marauder Task Force WWII US Army Soldier. The level of detail on the figure and gear is just AMAZING!

Hey guys so some exciting Kickstarter news. Zica Toys launched their Kickstarter campaign a few days ago for Sectuars Warriors of Symbion. They are already half way to their goal of $40,000 with 25 days to go. Zica has been teasing us with news of the Sectaurs for around 10 months now and finally it’s our chance to get in on this. Sectaurs is of course based on the 1985 action figure line released by Coleco. The line was short lived and never made it past the first wave but now we have a chance to remedy that by getting Zica off the ground. One of the best parts of this Kickstarter is that Zica has adjusted the figures down from their original larger size down to the 1/18th (4”) scale. The first two figures in the lineup are Dargon and General Spidrax, the main hero and villain of the series. They are offering these as a two pack or by themselves. Get in on this early and let’s help get this campaign fully funded.
Jump on over to Kickstarter and read more about the campaign and the Sectaurs. Also, check out Zica Toy’s Facebook page to see pictures of additional waves of figures.
One piece of news that cannot go unnoticed is the latest in a line of Kickstarters by Robert Carson Mataxis of 3D Joes. Robert is in the final week of his Kickstarter for volumes 5 and 6 of Collecting the art of GI Joe. These volumes cover the years 1990-1994 and are a celebration of the painted art of GI Joe A Real American Hero. As of writing this post the Kickstarter has smashed its goal and currently sits at $35,830. You still have 6 days to get in on this Kickstarter and own a great piece of collecting art. Volume 5 will feature 158 unique pieces of art and will cover three years of material. Volume 6 will cover the last two years of figures, vehicles, playsets and peripheral painted art for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. It will also feature 20 pages of unreleased and international painted art.
Head over to Kickstarter before it’s over.
What a final day for the latest Marauder Kickstarter! I was already intrigued by this Kickstarter at launch, merely because the Exo-Suit looked so cool, and I was definitely on the hook for a few of the Contract Ops figures.
The K-9 ended up impressing me more than I thought it would, and then when news got out that they would be making Agency-Ops figures as a part of this deal? Yeah, I knew I was on board.
Whether or not we’d even hit Agency Ops was still in question leading to the last day. It was a stretch goal at the $
214,000 $172,000 level, which felt a bit out of reach with 24 hours remaining. But everyone came together, and we ended up smashing that goal, the Kickstarter rounding off at nearly $218,000!
Huge congrats to the always great folks at Marauder for another successful Kickstarter, and a big thanks to Tommy over on the Marauder Task Force Facebook Page who whipped up a spectacular graphic outlining what would be contained in the “All In” pledge level (this is essentially everything that got unlocked during the Kickstarter).
This is a great look at more terrific additions to an already impressive product line. Marauder continues to reinvent 1:18 scale military action figures, and I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these and to see what’s still up their sleeves.
With the plethora of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero books hitting Kickstarter in recent years, there’s been an awesome wealth of content available for us long time fans. One avenue that hasn’t been fully explored, however, is the advertising and marketing side of things, but Phil Reed from Battlegrip.com has that covered.
The Kickstarter for Modern Army Action Figures was just recently launched and explores the great advertising of vintage Real American Hero product. One would argue a huge amount of G.I. Joe’s success in the 80’s was due to its unique look at marketing and advertising, and Phil’s got some great stuff here.
Go check out the book on Kickstarter and throw some support its way!
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 he’s vile nemesis Baron Kah Lee. Each figure features 17 points of articulation as well as removable armor and weapon accessories.

As we get towards the finish line of the Eagle Force Returns Kickstarter Campaign, Fresh Monkey Fiction has announced the early unlocking of the Grimm Reaper Troopers! That puts this figure as part of the All In package as well as able to be purchased as an army builder 4-Pack! It’s an excellent looking trooper with a really cool backstory to boot.
Also, details will be coming soon on a contest for a R.I.O.T. Hideout playset.
Let’s finish this thing strong, folks! Come on, only 2 weeks left and a lotta stretch goals still to go.
You don’t see a whole lot of G.I. Joe themed Kickstarter campaigns out there, but now all of a sudden we’ve got two excellent looking G.I. Joe books with campaigns running simultaneously.
Folks who have been reading GeneralsJoes know that I always throw some support behind the offerings of 3DJoes. Carson does great work on his website, and always puts out a quality product. You can check out the Kickstarter for The Art of G.I. Joe (Volume 2) here.
Along with this, Dan K. is also working to fund a great looking G.I. Joe book filled with fantastic early concept art for figures and vehicles. Lots of never before seen details and looks at some concepts that may have never reached full production. It’s a very unique and intriguing look at some of the concepts behind A Real American Hero and deserves a place on your shelf!
You can check out the Kickstarter for 3.75 Joe right here.
Pretty exciting stuff for a fanbase who is out there excited about all things G.I. Joe!
I’ve been lax in my support of the new Legion XIV Kickstarter, but that ends here. It’s been posted for nearly three weeks and has garnered some good support, but not quite good enough.
There’s currently almost 100 supporters who have invested nearly $7,000 in getting this project off the ground, but more help is needed! With a goal of $21,000 and only eleven days left G.I. Joe fans need to come together to see if we can help get this project funded.
Focusing around a great looking 4″ female action soldier with impressive articulation, the Legion XIV project needs all of our support. Some great stretch goals are out there, too, so if you like what you see, and if you need more female soldiers in your display, hit it up!
Check out the Kickstarter right here and throw some support its way. We’re running out of time!
