If they ever get to the point of making civilians, this site may as well just shut down.

I feel stupid. I can't figure out how to back the kickstarter.
Click on the pledge level you want, running down the right hand part of the page. Then follow the steps.

If you want rewards (figures) as add-ons***, like the blank figures, then you add the cost of them to your total pledge amount. When the project ends they send you a survey where you tell them which add-ons you wanted added to your initial package.

***In order to be able to purchase the add-on figures, you have to have an initial pledge level of the "Wave 1 Set of Four Figures" package ($115), or higher.

Hey Customizers!!
Well, as Pluz stated, we unlocked the first blank bodies and are now only 74 backers away from the Amazon!!
So get your x-actos and paint brushes ready and clear off your work bench because I expect to see some SERIOUS customizing outta you guys!!
We're planning a custom gallery for the web-site and Facebook too...so everybody will get to see what you all can do with our V-H.A.C.K.S. figures!
Gaigaan- The Underworld Warrior will be cast in grey with some VERY clever paint application to get the effect. We toyed with doing him in clear orange, but to get the really nice "lava flow" effect we needed to paint it on otherwise there would be too much grey/black and not enough light would pipe through.
Sputnik- We probably won't be doing individual blank parts for sale. It wouldn't be a cost effective
to use the tooling and would actually end up being way expensive. If the blank bodies do well though, we plan to continue them adding more and more colors to the line
Drbindy- 1. Rest assured we've looked at a lot of monsters and mythic creatures and have plans down the line for many of them...even if it takes 4 or 5 series to get to them.
2. The really odd thing about action figure manufacturing is that the scale is an inexact science. Within the industry everybody says 3&3/4" when talking about anything (classic or modern) GI Joe, Star Wars, or Marvel even though the newer figures are actually 4" tall. roughly. We're trying to change the vernacular to be "4 inches" because that's the modern scale. That said, our figures (in production) will be roughly 4" equals 6' with slight height variations abound.
Cap- Stay tuned for the Elven Archer...I assure you that she's in our sights.

That's awesome. Hopefully the other blanks get unlocked and there can be some mixing and matching going on.

I finally had enough, and had to go figure out what 'low durometer' means ...
:tictoc:

























it means 'soft plastic'

King Leonidas and the Black Racer Gorgon are now unlocked, and only around 40 more contributors to go, before the Amazon is unlocked.

There's still over 2 weeks before the funding period ends, but I don't think it's going to hit enough to unlock the skeletons. :-(

Hopefully they will still do them sometime. My displays need Harryhausen-esque skeleton warriors!

Don't lose hope -- this Kickstarter has already reached 200% of it's goal, and with two weeks left. As with most Kickstarters, there's an initial surge, followed by a cooling-off period, but then there's usually a mad rush at the end -- I'm hoping for a HUGE mad rush.

Also, here's a call to most JCers who can swing it -- even if you've already kicked in, wouldn't it be cool if your wife or kids or girlfriend/boyfriend had a Stone Spartan of their own? or maybe a second Snake?

//we need less than 50 new pledges to unlock the Amazon!

question for kickstarter technique - may have been already addressed, but I apologize if so.

I'm really leaning towards the all-in bid, but might also want one of the 10 man armies. Should I judge pledge the all-in amout, and "add-on" one of the other purchases later? Or do I need to pledge enough to cover both?

You have to pick an initial pledge level. In order to add-on you have to at least be at the $115 level. If you plan on doing the All-In level no matter what then you might as well start with the $500 all-in and then tack on the additional funds for the 10 pack army or blanks or whatever else by going through the "Manage your pledge" button and adjusting the amount. I've only seen the button on a computer, not mobile.

From a support level, the sooner you can add your total pledge amount the better. Nothing is final until the kickstarter ends. The downside is if it ends and whatever you want isn't unlocked then you will have to use the extra amount towards whatever has been unlocked.

I'm not sure if that answers my question or not, but I'll figure it out.
