You want this, don’t deny it. Head to their Kickstarter HERE and take part. If you can’t afford anything, throw a dollar in to show support for these guys, they have amazing talent, and more amazing things coming down the pipe. – rev
Harmony Gold wants to bring a new Robotech series to life and are looking to the fans for help! Find out more and the Robotech Academy Kickstarter page by CLICKING HERE.
An officially licensed resurrection of the mid 90’s Skeleton Warriors franchise is up for your consideration on Kickstarter. You may remember the property from the creator of Captain Power, which was made up of a syndicated cartoon for one season, 6 comic issues, and a series of toys.
This kickstarter focuses on the lead bad guy Baron Dark. The Crew behind this kickstarter have had 3 successful Glyos based action figure kickstarters already.
You can find out more about the project from this interview they did with Moderately Geeky.
I was excited to hear that although Baron Dark is 5″ (as well as the skeletons, including the glow in the dark ones) that the line is in 4″ scale according to the toon as the skeletons were monstrous. I would prefer the scale be fudged and these be at 4″ but it gives me hope that if successfully 4″ human figures could be possible.
If your interested in picking up the ENTIRE Skeleton Warriors series on DVD it’s really cheap on Amazon.
Again, give their kickstarter a look HERE.
If you would like Skeleton Warriors to be the focus of a future Nerdversity 101 episode, let us know in the comment sessions.
The folks being the I Am Elemental have a very specific goal in mind. They want to get more little girl friendly action figures to the market. Their campaign has already been fully funded but if you haven’t heard of them you may wish to check them out. There Kick starter is located HERE.
For even more information check out the creator’s interview on the Moderately Geeky Podcast HERE.
If I had a daughter, I think this would be an easy pick up. It’s a crowded landscape for the kickstarter action figure world at the moment, but even so these stand to me, and I’m not the target audience. While not reaching G.I.Joe or Marvel Universe levels of articulation, they have serviceable joints, and a unique look. Looking forward to seeing some reviews hit the web once these are shipped (and if you would like to one for us let me know)
Skyrocketing beyond what i could have dreamed, you want these all new, factory produced 4 ” figures! They could stand on their own, police your superhero world, work well with with G.I.Joe, or more. GO HERE to find out more. -revsears.
Very Graphic Novels have set out a press release (WHICH YOU CAN VIEW HERE)
about the new comic they are launching via Kickstarter. You really should give the video on their kick starter a look. Kung Fu action in a post apocalyptic zombie world with beautiful art, an energetic british writer, and the chance to have your name printed in the back as a supporter.
With 12 days to guy they have 81% of their goal, and I encourage you to go over give it a look and if you have some cash, this looks looks fun and professional enough to fund! -revsears
Nevermore Toys is back on kickstarter. You may remember them from their work on the Legendary monsters, but now the creator aims to bring a large soft Slender Man doll to you, and possibly give you nightmares by doing so.
Check out the pic below and head HERE to visit the kickstarter page. -revsears
The excellent line I told you about HERE is still on kick starter. Although they are nearing the end. JUST ONE DAY LEFT! Now they have additional options available including glow in the dark and Retro (more muted brown) colors. Check them out and give the kickstarter a read too. Lots of info there. Did you know the designer also works on video games, including a recent fav of mine XCOM, and the more famous Fallout 3 and Elder Scrolls Oblivion.
Thanks to Pluv on Joecustoms I learned this was a line that’s been long in the making. He linked this info HERE in a thread about the line on Joecustoms. These were originally planned to be released 2001. I learned that sometime ago and continue to follow it in hopes that this time we will see success!
As always you can join the discussion on our forums.
Nevermore toys has announced a new line of the 3 3/4 monster action figures that they hope to fund via Kickstarter. This looks like a great potential line to set along side a G.I.Joe Zombie-viper and have your Joes hunt them down.
as you can see each monster has a base and a victim, this one is the chupachabra, my fave of the bunch.
