Reminder Backerkit closes in less than 2 weeks and what's going on behind the scenes?
about 2 years ago – Mon, Apr 17, 2017 at 09:06:09 PM

Hey everyone.

I've got a few images to show. The factory has started to prep the tooling for the figures. We prototyped some figures at the factory to test out a few things. I'm always hesitant to show images like this cause they are very early and extremely rough around the edges, but as this is a Kickstarter and we've come together as a community to bring Eagle Force back to action I wanted to share them.

Again these are very rough and there are many things we are adjusting but I always think it's fun to see some behind the scenes images. 

Also Steven Butler is working hard on finalizing the packaging art..here are are couple of B&W images.

Plus Joe Harris has started working on the Eagle Island play sets..he's started printing the parts and will begin assembly soon. 

Also I reminder that the Backerkit is closing on May 1st so please make sure you fill out and submit your BackerKit ASAP. If you have any questions please message me via Kickstarter and let me know. 

Oh and we've started to show a few figures for our follow up Eagle Force line. Eagle Force: Heroes vs Villains and Monster Force. We'll be launching this Kickstarter in early 2018 as soon as the Eagle Force orders are filled. Check out the a few preview images. 

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates!

Eagle Force Strikes trading card Kickstarter
over 2 years ago – Sat, Feb 18, 2017 at 05:45:40 PM

Hey Folks

I wanted to give you a heads up that The Drawn Word has just launched the Eagle Force Strikes trading card Kickstarter. 

This card set reveals the backstory (now largely declassified) of the 1980-1985 Eagle Force team! De-Classified after 30+ years are the battles waged by Eagle Force and R.I.O.T. against one another. The initial pack features the following missions:

  • Operation: Big Ben
  • Operation: Motor City
  • Operation: Black Tar
  • Operation: Sarcophagus
  • Operation: Rook
  • Operation: Desert Heat
  • Operation: Backyard (R.I.O.T.’s invasion of Washington, D.C.)

Also present are The Eagle Files, Captain Eagle’s own thoughts on his team members:

  • Captain Eagle
  • Kayo
  • Goldie Hawk
  • Redwing
  • Sgt. Brown
  • Stryker
  • Harley
  • Wild Bill
  • Zapper

Get the limited Captain Eagle Metal card in the Golden Eagle level, or get both him and General Mamba in the Mamba level! The Reinforcements level gets you the Eagle Force Strikes! set, Eagle and Mamba metal cards, and limited metal cards of Sgt. Brown and Baron Von Chill. You'll also get a 1st look at a character from our upcoming Eagle Force: Monster Force line

Check out the Eagle Force Strikes Kickstarter Campaign now! 

On another note, here are a couple images from the packaging art that have now been colored.

Also, we're working on color guides for the factory...for those interested in behind the scenes stuff, we'd thought share these images.

 

Thanks

Bill and Craig! 

Paying it forward! Cause we’re all trying to make cool stuff! 

Each update (or so) will have a short blurb at the bottom where I try to raise awareness about other cool projects, most of them will be Kickstarter projects, but other stuff will be mentioned as well.

TOYS THAT TIME FORGOT - A book about unproduced toys

Do you remember back in the early 1980s, playing with all of the toys based on the sci-fi fantasy film Krull produced by Knickerbocker Toys? What about the Masters Of The Universe meets Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots line that was Hasbro’s Tribes range in the early 1990s? Or all of those ReSaurus-made action figures and role-play accessories based on the break out video game Oddworld in 1997? No? Well, that’s because they were never made...find out the secrets in this new book "Toys that time forgot". Now on Kickstarter. 

More Eagle Force packaging art..some 3D prints and what's up for 2018...

Hey Everyone

Just thought I’d post a quick update as we wait for our factory to get back from Chinese New Year. This post will be pic heavy…you have been warned.

Here are some more images of Steven Butler Studio's pencils for the character art from the Eagle Force packaging….they are in the hands of the colorist now, but I thought these would be fun to show.

 


Also, our sculptor extraordinaire, Arlen Pelletier has been having fun with his new 3D Printer and he did some “down and dirty” prints of some of our figures…some of the parts are not quite in scale or final, but I thought everyone would get a kick out of them.

 

 

 

We’re going to post the name Sgt. Bulldog’s bulldog contest in the next week or so. The plan is to do a Kickstarter update for Backers to suggest names and then we’ll do another update a week later where Backers can vote by making a comment in comments section. 

We’ve also been working on our next project for 2018…Eagle Force: Monster Force

We’re still in early development as we are focusing on Eagle Force Wave 1, but we wanted to put out a little tease…more to come this summer. 

Thanks

Bill and Craig!

DUSK, A Graphic Novel - Kickstarter

Our buddy Jason Bienvenu has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of the first graphic novel of the comic series, Dusk. Created by writer Brandon Gary and artist Jason Bienvenu, the book collects the first 6 issues that make up the first story arc. Head on over a check it out…


THE GOLDEN GUARD - Upcoming Kickstarter 
Vito Delsante is ramping up promotion for his upcoming Golden Guard Kickstarter and has started a Thunderclap campaign to gain awareness. Head over to the Golden Guard facebook page to discover the Golden Guard.  

SHITTY WATCHMEN 
Shitty Watchmen is a formalist exercise analyzing the language of comics as utilized by Alan Moore and, more importantly, Dave Gibbons. Created by Dave Baker, Nicole Goux, Rachel Dukes, Malachi Ward, Nick Diaz, Emilie Vo, Sam Ancona, Chuck Kerr, Colby Bluth, Robert Negrete, and Sabrina Deigert, Shitty Watchmen seeks to scrutinize the masterful use of composition and panel breakdown within the most undeniably complex comic book ever created. The means by which these staggering artistic achievements are deconstructed? Super shitty drawings. Thus... Shitty Watchmen.

You can check it out on Tumbler.
