New 6" Street Humans Action Figures Coming From The Mind Of ShartimusPrime

Recommended Posts

Youtuber and action figure toy reviewer ShartimusPrime is branching out into the world of making action figures with a new 6" line called Street Humans. The plan is to initially release 4 figures with the possibly of 2 additional unlockable figures through a Kickstarter campaign he will be launching in September. The figures are based on a concept of alien shapeshifters who come to Earth disguised as street thugs. These figures will be highly articulated and feature lots of interchangeable parts making them great for customization and doing toy photographers with. The figures are 6.5" which should make them in scale well with other lines like Marvel Legends. Look for more details to be released in the coming weeks, but for now you can check out these videos for more details.

The bat monster head looks great, but the rest of the figure is just a random guy I don't think I get what's the whole deal of this project.

The alien is one aspect but I also think the street thug aspect is for those looking  for background characters for toy photography or thug like foe characters for people like Spider-Man or Daredevil to fight.

The bat monster head is awesome, loving the idea that these are cool monster people figures, as well as civilian figures for the 6'' displays, Shart has something here, they hold more then one use. I would probably back this just based on the cool monster stuff.

Like someone else said, I think the whole point of this line is to create background characters (street thugs) for your action-figure displays/photography.  I'm actually more intrigued by the "random guy" features and interchangeable heads, body display options than the alien monsters.

I like the idea of basically an army builder line of goons that have multiple functions. If he ends up charging a reasonable price if its successful, I will possibly bite. But for now, I will just be a lurker watching it as it goes.

This is what a "Men In Black"  fig should/could have been...

They could have called them....... MIB  "illegal Humans"=^)

A line focused on random guys that are ornaments in the background, I think I understand it and I'm sure it will have an acceptable amount of backers, just another crow founding project of the heap.

I’m not the target audience for this as I don’t do action figure photography so it is not something I’m going to be interested in purchasing but I am curious to see how it does and how it develops.  
 

It seems like a particularly tough venture given the numerous lines already out there in both the retail market and the direct market and the fact that prices are rising quickly and rapidly for both.  
That price point is going to be key.  Will people  pay double or triple the cost to have an unnamed background character compared to a beloved foreground character?

Another big factor is are they going to be fairly limited in terms of what lines these can go with.  I feel like this sample was made with Marvel Legends in mind and would work well for those interested in using him with those figures but with other toy lines he wouldn’t blend in as well.  Star Wars, MOTU, Thundercats, SilverHawks, Mythic Legions, etc are fantasy worlds where the same figure wouldn’t fit in.  GI Joe doesn’t need background characters as that’s what troop builders are for.  WWE’/AEW you’d need hundreds of unique background to fill the audience, or you’d need very specific looks like referee or security. DC and large portions of NECA and Diamond are in a slightly larger scale.  Transformers are obviously way out of scale.  Mezco One:12 are aesthetically different to where this doesn’t feel like it would blend in.  It could maybe work with the movie TMNT line but  even then the style is slightly off and foot soldiers are already out there as a background character choice.  Animated Turtles the aesthetics are way off.  I’m not a Power Rangers person so maybe this would work with them but it also seems like given their bright color palette you’d want something more fitting to that Power Ranger aesthetic.  So it really seems like Marvel Legends is the primary line this is intended to work with.  That’s not bad but is it a wide enough net given that only a very small percentage of collectors of that line would be interested and then depending on price point even a smaller percentage will be able to work it into their budget on top of everything else.  
 

Time will tell but I wish them luck and will be curious to see how it goes.

Any idea of a price point on these Jay?

That's true, what will the price point be on them? I hope an average of 19.99-24.99 for each. I'm not sure if I am interested but this looks cool, I love the idea and the music he has in his vids here. Glad to see him branch out.

Interesting. Any reason why these ET creatures would choose to come to earth to disguise themselves as human earth thugs? lol. I wonder if Shart will go into more detail on that idea..or expand. It does have me curious.

This teaser is terrible. 

Hahahaha..

Anyone else see how wrong this looks on a social scale.

 

Dont get me wrong the figure looks good (digital protos)

Great for army builder. Or random background extras

But the 1st teaser was poorly thought out.

At least go with the one that looks like the creator. 

Good luck to him though. I hope for his success..seems like a nice guy.

 

Social scale? What are you talking about?

Maybe because the character is black and it would not seem correct to portray a black person specifically as a street criminal, but I suppose there will be characters of different ethnic groups.

Every character in Street Humans is from a different ethnic group. And Shartimus said this guy is the protagonist. I don't think he's supposed to be a criminal.

My guess it's minimum 40-60 without shipping, I can't see kickstarter figure of this scale being cheaper or close to ML price point.

Thats a big pass for me dawg.. $35 for essentially army builders is way too high. Good luck on the KS, I hope it succeeds. I thought it was wild that fwoosh charged $40 for their ninjas, and after getting them at their much more respected sale price, that was soooo much for what you got.
