I came across an interesting Kickstarter today. It's an "O'ring"esque line called Strike Force Alpha.

They seem like they would fit in nicely with an old school collection.

But they have actually replaced the oring with a ball and socket set. And pop off hands and boots.

I applaud their efforts and creativity but RAH proportions are just too dumpy for my tastes these days. Good luck to them.

I think it's a little strange that they went with the RAH look/proportions but not the true o-ring construction. I don't like that don't look compatible with RAH parts. I was also hoping there would one day be a retro style o-ring line with various licenses like ReAction but o-ring style.

I love the pop and swap design. Had "retro" joes gone in that route I'd be more pumped for them

I would rather have the parts be fully compatible with o-ring figs if they are going with that look... Well being able to pop the joint at the biceps and added pop out joints at the lower legs an lower arms is a nice innovation on the o-ring design

I'm strongly thinking about backing this.

Well they've added two new stretch goals.
When it hits $90,000 the Alpha Base Trooper and Infiltrators will be added.

They've added more items to the set.
And some of these guys look familiar...

And a black version of the Wraiths that comes with a print.

They have made funding and are less than $9,000 away from the Alpha Base Trooper/Infiltrators stretch goal.

Lil over a day to go and they have unlocked the Alpha Base Trooper/Infiltrators stretch goal. And are $6,500 from the final stretch goal.
