Tooling update, Wave 2 preview…and cards or boxes?
over 2 years ago – Mon, Jun 12, 2017 at 12:00:08 AM

Hey everyone! 

We’ve begun our tooling phase for the figures…here are a few images.

 

Just a bunch of steel blocks…I know it doesn’t look very exciting but we’ll be using these steel tools for a while so it’s a thrill for us to see them. The tools will take about a month to finalize then we should start seeing samples toward the end of July…we’ll be sure to share images of those as soon as we get them.

We’re also working up the design for the packaging. We were originally planning on doing boxes for the line but we’ve been toying with the idea of collector friendly card backs..like our Amazing Heroes line. If we go this route it would look something like this. Post a comment and let us know what you think. Do you think this is a better direction? 

Also we wanted to share a couple of reveals for our Eagle Force Wave 2 kickstarter that we plan to launch in early 2018 once we’ve shipped the Wave 1 figures to the Kickstarter backers. Wave 2 will have characters from Eagle Force, Monster Force and Eagle Force: Heroes vs Villains. Here are a couple Eagle Force reveals…these are early work in progress images.

We’re looking forward to getting Wave 2 off the ground early next year.

Also, if you need your Eagle Force fix The Drawn Word is at it again with a Goldie Hawk photo card set….that’s right photo cards. 

The Goldie Hawk pack follows Goldie's secret solo mission from 1987. Goldie races to answer a distress beacon from an abandoned R.I.O.T. laboratory in Germany. Who and what she encounters will play out in Eagle Force Mega and Eagle Force Returns! …wait did I just mention Eagle Force Mega…wonder what that is? If this kickstarter hits it’s final stretch goal you’ll find out.

Thanks again for the support everyone.

Sgt. Bulldog's dog has a name, a special Eagle Force Pulp novel and a character reveal.
over 2 years ago – Sun, May 07, 2017 at 07:08:08 PM

Hey everyone!

The votes have been tallied and Sgt. Bulldog's pet has a name. It was a close race, but "Churchill" won with the most popular vote! I think this is a fitting name for our Sgt's best  friend. Thanks for voting everyone. 

The fine folks at The Drawn Word, who brought you the amazing Eagle Force Strikes Trading card set, have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for our 1st Eagle Force novel "Eight Lives Left" featuring classic 80's Eagle Force member The Cat. 

The Cat: Eight Lives Left is the first Eagle Force Pulp novella that tells the story of Lee Fine, a cat burglar roped into taking on one big job for an agency so secret it doesn't even have a name. Eight Lives Left plants narrative seeds that will come to bloom as far forward in the Eagle Force timeline as the upcoming Monster Force. It weighs in at as a 64-page pocket-sized (5.06 x 7.81 ) paperback book, with a limited print run for this first cover.

Written by Christopher Irving, this is an homage to all things Ian Fleming, as this cat burglar begins his journey into becoming America's leading secret agent.

Head on over to the Eagle Force novel "Eight Lives Left" Kickstarter campaign and check it out...but don't wait long the campaign ends on May 19th.

Also as many of you know we're in development of our next Eagle Force action figure kickstarter. The next line won't launch until 2018 after all kickstarter orders have been filled but we've been working to develop 2 companion lines, Eagle Force: Monster Force and Eagle Force: Heroes vs Villains

We've heard from a few of you that there was some disappointment around the fact that we're moving on to 2 companion lines and not focusing on the core Eagle Force Team. I'm happy to announce that the next campaign will feature characters from not only from  Eagle Force: Monster Force and Eagle Force: Heroes vs Villains BUT we're also going to feature core Eagle Force characters as well, both classic and new characters such as S.T.A.T. the Eagle Force Medical Officer.

Look for more character reveals later this year.

Thanks for your support everyone!

Reminder Backerkit closes in less than 2 weeks and what's going on behind the scenes?
over 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.
