Now that the Eagle Force isn't part of the Captain Action Kickstarter it is time it gets its own thread.

Fresh Monkey Fiction posted an update on their instagram that looks to be a hard copy fresh off the printer.

So I take it EF will get its own KS then. I hope so cause I'm on the bible on Captain Action.

That's a damn nice sculpt, but I wonder about the torso artic. It looks like a Marauder's waist ball flipped upside down.

And it looks like BossFight isn't working on the designs or sculpting going foward. No word on who is yet.

I have no idea why I have zero interest in this. I should be over the moon, but maybe it's because these are painted yet?

I have been stoked for this for a year now, but once I saw the $25 price tag on Captain Action and the confirmed that EF would be about the same, I had to put a nix on getting any. $25 a figure, no matter how cool isn't worth it. I'll just be content with my original EFs.

Yeah, I have to wonder why Zica can't get prices down where smaller companies with presumed smaller runs can.

Same for me. 25$US per figure + shipping (on top of the current atrocious exchange rate for Can$) means that I'm out. The only thing that may entice me is if they structure their Kickstarter to include meaningful extras for higher pledges. No extras means no pledge.

25 bucks a head is a bummer. If I get any it'll likely be just one or two.

On the other hand, though, buying a complete MTF figure isn't a whole lot cheaper, and I have a bunch of those. I guess we'll see what happens with Captain Action.

These are looking awesome. I'm really glad they managed to secure a different factory and lower the price per unit for their Captain Action KS. I'm hoping the EF KS will follow suit, because I would really like to pledge for these.

Have we seen the full pic reveals of Fireball, Capt Eagle, and the Infantry Trooper before? They look nice!

I'm glad they went with Fireball, which was Beta-Man's original name during prototype stages. Also, what's the point of an EF trooper? For me, I'd rather see them spend their time on actual characters that are a part of the team. Things like the RIOT trooper are cool, but an EF trooper and Stryker Jr just don't work for me.

The same dumbass point there is in a Greenshirt, I figure. You buy one and rename it as an individual.

Keep the nameless minions for the villains, we need more characters and RIOT need Savitar.
