Paint Masters 

We have more paint masters to show you thanks to the amazing Jason Bienvenu. Again these are "work in progress" images. We're getting these ready to show at Joe Con later this month.

The Official Eagle Force Handbook Vol 101 Kickstarter

We're also just launched "The Official Eagle Force handbook Volume 101" Kickstarter. This handbook is inspired by the old Marvel Universe Handbook from the 80's. Each volume will expand on the Eagle Force universe which now includes over 150 characters that span the following teams:

• Eagle Force Returns • R.I.O.T. • Eagle Force’42 • Ninja Force • Eagle Force ’81 • Super Force • Monster Force • Eagle Force Mega • Spy Force • Heroes vs Villains • The Agency • C.L.A.W. • The Midnightmen • Thule Society •

You can learn about new characters from the Eagle Force universe and read updated bios from the characters we included in the Eagle Force Returns Handbook .pdf we sent out earlier this year.

Thanks to some of you we've already funded but have some great rewards and stretch goals planned. Head on over to Kickstarter and check it out. 

Thanks again everyone!

Eagle Force "The Cat: Search & Destroy" Kickstarter, Paint Masters images and Joe Con 2018
about 1 year ago – Sat, Jun 02, 2018 at 06:29:08 PM

Lee Fine aka The Cat in "Search & Destroy"

Christopher Irving is at it again! He just launched the Kickstarter for his latest novel in the Eagle Force Pulp series focusing on Lee Fine aka The Cat in "Search & Destroy".

Search and Destroy is the culmination of Lee Fine's early days as a spy for The Agency. After the events of Face the Night, The Cat tries to leave his life as a spy but is drawn back in to avenge a fallen friend. What follows is the ultimate showdown with the Direktor as he reveals his ultimate plan for R.I.O.T.!

The Kickstarter has 9 more days left and includes some great rewards like a limited edition hardcover which includes all the previous Eagle Force Pulp novels. 

Paint Masters 

We've also started working on the Eagle Force paint masters thanks to the amazing Jason Bienvenu. You can see some "work in progress" images below. 

Joe Con 2018

We also have some exciting news. The folks at Chicken Fried Toys have kindly offered to display the Eagle Force tooling samples later this month at Joe Con June 21-24th.  We won't be on hand to enjoy the show but please stop by the Chicken Fried Toys booth and head over to any of the social media links below to let us know what you think the figures.

Thanks again for your support. I hope you enjoyed seeing these images as much as we did.

These will be sent out to get painted by the prototype painter shortly.  Unfortunately since the factory got behind the painter is booked till July, so we won't see the paint masters till mid/late July.

From there they go to the factory so the factory can start the paint samples. I'll keep pushing the factory as much as I can, but I think we're looking at a Q3 delivery at this time. I'll keep everyone updated as we move forward. Thanks for your patience and understanding, based on these samples once you get these in hand I know it'll be worth the wait.

Best, 

Bill

Tooling samples are on their way!
about 1 year ago – Sun, May 13, 2018 at 12:34:47 AM

The factory has output the tooling samples for over 30 figures. 

Here are some image as they assembled them for shipping. I should have these next week.

I wish were at this place a year ago, but we're still working as fast as we can to get these done. Once I get them in hand they'll go to the prototype painter. 

Thanks again everyone

Bill

April Update...New tooling images
about 1 year ago – Wed, Apr 11, 2018 at 12:28:44 AM

Hey Everyone!

We just got a few images of the tooling adjustments. There are still a couple minor issues, including the gap between the upper leg and crotch but we're hoping to have those resolved soon. You can see images below, along with a comparison with the old shorted tooling. 

 I know this is taking longer than expected but we're working hard to make these figures great! I'm hoping to have samples in hand in a few weeks, so I'll take better images at that point. 

So what's next steps? Once the tooling is finaled we're going to move on the paint masters. Paint masters were not part of our original project plan, we hoped the 3D renders would be sufficient for the factory.  This worked very well for our Amazing Heroes Retroverse line but as these figures require more paint decos we have decided to have Ed Bradley (Sideshow,  Diamond) do the paint masters for the figures. Here are a couple paint masters he just did for a new comic book line we are working on.

Traditionally this is done earlier in the process, but because of the nature of the Kickstarter timeline and the fact that we feel strongly the factory needs painted samples, we are doing this after tooling. These paint masters will allow the factory to have a in-hand reference of how we want the production figures to look. This will cause the figures to be delayed a bit more than we would like but we feel this will achieve a better result in the long run. 

We will of course keep you updated as things progress at every stage. Thanks again for all the support, I know this has been a long road but it will be worth it in the end.

Best, 

Bill
