Just got an email from FMF about their upcoming Eagle Force 40th Anniversary Kickstarter set to launch 10/4/21.

For those that were disappointed the classic gold suits weren’t unlocked in the last Kickstarter this one is for you. They are focusing on the Classic looks and sprinkling in some Eagle Force Returns characters too.

Click the link to get notified when it launched.

Apparently they are partnering with BBTS for this instead of Kickstarter.

All those Red Shadows "kits" - wonder if that'll cause any issues?

I'm honestly not sure where the "Action Force" and "Red Shadows" copyrights are right now. Bobby Vala is using "Action Force" for his 6" line so maybe some of these are in limbo?

I'm just glad these are up for preorder at BBTS so I don't have to risk my money on a campaign that might not get made *coughHellScreamerscough*. I have faith in the FMF/Zica guys after they came through with the first Eagle Force Kickstarter and how they handled all the $#!t they had to deal with there so I'm not worried. If BBTS is backing it that also gives me confidence. But I'm still not ready to hand over my money for a product that won't come out for well over a year (unless its Marauder).

yeah, there's some pyramid schemery with how they've been generating future lines so far in advance of what is actually being produced. But I also would feel more confident in a BBTS pre-order. And am much more interested in an Eagle Force line that looks like Eagle Force.

Wave one was still a touch tiny for me though.

I don't think its anything shifty like a pyramid scheme or anything. They've partnered with BBTS to help fund their line. It adds respectability to their product and gives buyers confidence that they aren't going to be out any money if things go sideways. I don't know anything about the specific deal but it seems like a good one to me. And going out this far in advance isn't any different than what BFS and Marauder do. Gotta get quantities as soon as you can so you can set production.

I agree the first Eagle Force figures were a touch small compared to other 3rd party lines like BFS and Marauder. But its not really enough of a problem for me as they are too pricey for fodder. I might tweak the existing figures to my own satisfaction but I don't see myself parts swapping outside the brand.

Not without modification.

I just realized that Maverick is actually Ace Hunter from Megaforce!

I'm not sure about the direction they took with Savitar. They modernized him in a business suit which would be logical for an assassin to go by unoticed, but I wish that they'd make his classic blue ninja suit too.

Everybody keeping up with the reveals? Black Terror and American Crusader are up at BBTS, and I've already claimed my pair. I suddenly have an urge to team Terror up with BFS' Phantom - SKULL BROS 4EVA!!!

I'm kinda really digging the "Plumber Brothers" homages and "Blockhead" too. Some really fun stuff in these waves.

So yday was the end of the event and about 2/3rds got to the minimum 500 PO and will be getting produced in 2022. Bill says the remaining figures - all gold uniforms AFAIK - are still planned to be slipped into future waves yet to be planned.

I wish they had tossed the Goldie Hawks into it. I would have backed them in a heartbeat.

They won't do a female buck for a while yet, and Goldie will be the absolute last gold figure to get done, imho.

...Harley was the only one I wanted and he was so close... but I can't tell if he made it to 500 or not.
