Quick update..BIG thanks to those folks who had declined cards and updated their info, but unfortunately we're still shy a few thousand dollars. The window for payment via Kickstarter has closed, but for those of you who did not update your payment you'll still be able to provide a new form of payment via BackerKit. Once the surveys go out next month we'll contact you personally and ask that you update your payment via BackerKit.
Regardless, we have decided to move forward on the modern Cat figure...he is just too cool to pass up. Arlen has been working hard behind these scenes this week to get us 1st look renders of both modern Zapper and Cat...take a look! They are awesome!
Also as we mentioned during the camping D&J Toys will be creating a bonus Eagle Force/R.I.O.T. sticker sheet for all backers of $20 or over. These stickers are made to redecorate the $5 Wal-Mart set of vehicles that you can now get in the store. This makes it easy to decorate right out of the package. Check out these awesome images!
Please check out D&J Toys Facebook update here for more info and images:
DON"T FORGET there is still 13 days to back Remco's Turntable Action Figure Display Stand Kickstarter..there is a reward that includes this awesome Eagle Force backdrop and the Eagle Force Santini Figure at a bundled price.
These stands will make an awesome display piece in your Eagle Force collection so let's try to make these display stands a reality!
Thanks again for all the support everyone!
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.
3.75" Joe: Creating G.I.Joe ®: A Real American Hero™ Vol. 3 Kickstarter
Steel City Publishing, LLC is publishing Vol 3 of their G.I. Joe design book. They are super close to making their goal, but they need some support to push them over the edge. Head over to the Kickstarter and check it out. If you're a fan of G.I. Joe you'll love these series of books.
Chicken Fried Toys Dime Novel Legends 1:18th Action Figure Kickstarter
Do you like cowboys? Who doesn't? Chicken Fried Toys is Kickstarting a line of 1:18th western action figures. I've seen these in person and I have to say this is going to be an amazing line of figures. They even just announced that their Badlands Vigilante figure will be available to backers over $100 IF they reach over 550 backers by the end of the Kickstarter. They have some great rewards and some amazing stretch goals planned, so go show them some love so we can add these amazing western figures to our collection.
We are still owed over $9,000.00 in payments...and some sculpting updates.

We just wanted to make everyone aware that we are still owed over $9,000.00 in payments because of declined credit cards. If you received a notification from Kickstarter that your card was declined please take action and provide them with a new form of payment within 24hrs.
$9,000.00 is a very large amount for us to cover. We might not be able to create the Modern Cat figure if we do not receive a significant portion of the payments from backers with the declined cards.
If you have any questions about payment or if you are unclear if your card has been processed please reach out to us here on Kickstarter and let us know.
On a lighter note...Alren has been working hard to finalized the head sculpts for both the modern versions on Zapper and Cat...take a look at these in progress images.

Eagle Force will return! Post funding update.

You did it!!!
After 30 years, Eagle Force will indeed return. It’s been quite a long road the last few years getting this project off the ground. We're so excited that we can now get these figures into production. We can’t thank you enough for all the support and contributions you gave over the last 45 days. You all had some great ideas, thanks for all the feedback throughout the campaign. From concerns about limited play sets to a joke about a can of gold spray paint, it’s been really fun ride...and to top it off, Sgt. Bulldog got a dog :)
595 of you came together as a community and made this happen. You are amazing!
So you might ask “What’s next?”
Well first off Kickstarter is going to charge your credit cards…some will get declined for various reasons, so please look for a notification from Kickstarter. If your card is declined, you’ll have 7 days to provide a new one so we can lock in your order. We can’t lock in your order if we don’t have the funds.
Once Kickstater has the funds, they’ll send the funds our way so we can start production.
In the mean time we’re gonna start building out the BackerKit survey. This will take us 4-6 weeks. Once we have that set up you’ll get a notification to sign up for BackerKit.
BackerKit is a service outside of Kickstarter which provides a more powerful survey feature than what Kickstarter provides. It allows you to manage your pledge even after the campaign ends. Registering with BackerKit will be a requirement for all backers in order for us to better manage your order. Plus we might have some surprises in store for items we were not able to offer during the campaign. The BackerKit surveys won't be locked until early 2017, so you will be able to make adjustments during this time.
Some common Post-campaign FAQs.
1) How will I be able to select my add-ons, add additional items and change my pledge level?
You will be able to do all of that with the BackerKit survey.
2) When and how will I receive the BackerKit survey?
The BackerKit survey will be emailed to you in about a 4-6 weeks.
3) I missed the campaign! Will I be able to purchase these items another way?
If you missed out on the Kickstarter campaign, we’ll open up pre-orders to outside backers via BackKit in early 2017.
4) Will everything be available or only certain items?
All items will be available except the Gold Cat figure, that figure is exclusive to Kickstarter backers.
5) I may be moving before the items ship. Will I be able to change my address?
Yes, you will be able to update your address with BackerKit anytime before your items ship.
As we move toward the end of the year, we’ll be finalizing the sculpts and getting prototypes ready. You’ll see more images along the way as we get all our production assets finalized. We’ll be keeping everyone updated via Kickstarter updates, so don’t worry, if you’re getting these updates you’ll get notified as we move along.
We’ve got more Eagle Force stuff in the pipeline, we can’t wait to share it with you…
Thanks again for all your support!
Bill and Craig.
