  1. KS campaign is thankfully over. We finished at $165,700 with a total of 565 backers. The Badlands Vigilante was unlocked, as well as the first four stretch goals. Anyone who has pledged at least $100 in the KS campaign can select the BV figure as an add one. A single copy. The "All-IN!" pledges can automatically add a single copy, and the "Two Step" pledges can add two copies. More information on things discussed during the last 30 minutes of the KS in the Live! feed will be typed up tomorrow night, and posted in the FB group. Any further information will be posted there, or sent out direc
  2. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chickenfriedtoys/chicken-fried-toys-dime-novel-legends-1-18th-actio Here are color pics of the "Most Wanted" portrait 5 pack: This is the solid black stand that was going to be added to the Boot Hill Loot gear sets. Now it's up in the air. This is a color mock up of a figure we were planning on making a website exclusive. It is also on hold. It IS NOT part of the KS despite what the canvas text might state.
  3. Last Stand at Kickstarter Creek! As I noted yesterday (and many times before over the last several weeks) we've been eyeing a couple of solutions for providing a good value for the "All-IN!" backers, and it's taken some finagling. We value the commitment necessary to support our freshman outing of action figures, and have stated from the beginning that supporters at that level deserve rewards for bearing the larger portion of financial burden for all others involved. To ensure a reasonable return for your pledge (beyond seeing the line made), we are going to add an additional 5 unique
  4. Latest update in the GI Joe section of the forum. We have an anonymous donor pledge matching "All-IN!" packages up to $10,000 and are almost to our initial funding goal. Here's your chance to come in and make a huge difference if you are interested and have no already. Thank you! updates - http://forums.toynewsi.com/topic/2098694-gi-joe-compatible-dime-novel-legends/ Kickstarter campaign - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chickenfriedtoys/chicken-fried-toys-dime-novel-legends-1-18th-actio
  5. Here are some more updates for stretch goal items and color guide for the remaining Buck-A-Roo, and the first three Boot Hill Loot accessory sets. As you can see, some were designed to specifically match body parts from the Bucks. http://www.brokenarrowtoys.com/ChickenFriedToys/PresentationFinalBootHillLoot3A.jpg We forged ahead really nicely this weekend and are just over $10k from initial funding and there is still about $5k remaining on the pledge matches from our anonymous donor. Be sure to like, share, and tweet with your friends, family and fellow collectors and let's see if
  6. https://www.kickstarter.com/…/chicken-fried-toys-dime-novel… Okay, here is the break we have all been waiting for. An anonymous donor who very much believes in our project has reached out, and has indicated that they would be willing to pledge match a set dollar amount to our campaign with only one caveat. They are willing to pledge match up to $10,000 to the KS, BUT only at the "All-IN!" level or above. Their thought is to use the money they have to gain ground on our total as quickly as possible. We believe that this is a good plan, and have agreed. So, beginning today, any new
  7. As we broke $100K today, here are a few words: Guys, no pressure, but now is the time when we need backers to really step up and start pushing this KS and it's info to everyone else. We've gotten some major big steps out of the way, but just take a minute once a day from now to the end and post the KS link somewhere. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, a forum, a blog...anywhere. We have to start looking outside the usual group of action figure fans and try reaching those people who just like the Old West in video games, literature, and on TV. To do that successfully is going to take a conce

  9. Another update today showcasing the Buck-A-Roos blanks #3 and #4. Meanwhile, back at the ranch we are about to hit the $100K milestone in pledges. Just around the corner from that is full initial funding and then unlocks.

  10. Latest updates from the KS page: You've asked for it, and as a result of the gracious agreement by a majority of our "All-IN!" pledge backers, we are going to make the Badlands Vigilante available to non-"All-IN!" pledges. But wait! Like all good things, this is going to require getting a little dirty. The Badlands Vigilante will be a "faux" unlock once two requirements are met. The first step towards this unlock is that we must reach 555 pledges or more (at the time of posting we needed to add an additional 224). For a new pledge to count towards the total for this unlock, it must be at $10
  11. Added a new Kickstarter Exclusive (open to any pledge) Garrison "KP" Trooper in both single and 3 packs, as well as a couple of small sets of gear to build them out extra! Take a look! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chickenfriedtoys/chicken-fried-toys-dime-novel-legends-1-18th-actio/dashboard
  12. I'll have full color reveals up late tonight on FB or first thing in the morning for the new KS Exclusive "KP" Trooper. You can always catch the latest info here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1693604734243240/ And on the KS page here: It will be updated here on TNI as well, but it may take a couple of days, as things are busy-busy-busy!
  13. If we are able to get these funded and off the ground, there should be a limited number available afterwards. Our print run is currently set at 2,000 of each character, so who can say for sure given the small numbers.
  14. Hey all! Been a long time, but I thought I'd pop back in here and share a project that I've been working on for about the last 5 years with my partners and Smalljoes.com. We just had our first day of activity on a Kickstarter campaign for our GI Joe style articulated Dime Novel Legends action figure line by Chicken Fried Toys and it was a doozy! We rolled out the prototypes at Joe Con this last summer and they were well received. Each character in our lineup is articulated similarly to a modern GI Joe figure, and has 16 points of movement.

  17. I've got the first Snake Eyes and regular Beach Head. Both are great, but the SE is a skinnier body than I'd like, and he's old enough now that the elastic in his straps is loose from age. Beach Head is flawless and one of my favorite Joe related items I own. All that being said, I wouldn't trade them. I have no compunction to buy more, but a coupe certainly fit in my collection nicely. Now if I could help my buddy sell all his COBRA Sideshow guys, I might score a freebie our of that, and that price is always right.
  18. Yes, I just forgot to add it here. Apologies. Our original location in the hotel was changed this morning due to issues with the GIJCC. The new location is: The Convention Center across the street. We will be in room 144, which as I understand it is straight past Starbucks on the second floor across the skywalk bridge from the Hyatt. Here is a quick and dirty map:
  19. Just a heads up. As I understand it, there are about a dozen people signed up and paid already. If you are planning to attend (even for just part of the day) please contact Raginspoon@yahoo.com and ask him to add you to the list. We want to make sure no-one get's left out.
  20. Card- Thank you! I hope that if the Club & Hasbro don't pull up the slack next year, that we'll be able to do this again. With more lead in time, of course. Rev- Looking forward to it!
  21. Raginspoon.com & BrokenArrowToys.com present the First Annual JoeCon Custom Jam! This event will be held on Thursday April 4th between the hours of 9AM to 4PM in the JW Marriot Indianapolis (room TBA). This custom class & swap meet will be open to the public and admission is just $20. For those of you arriving later on Thursday and want to stop in, prices will be adjusted for you as you arrive. For your admission price you will have the opportunity to participate in a custom building jam session where you can trade tips and tricks with other GI Joe customizers. Some materials w

    Predator WIP

    I know it's been forever since I posted here, but I thought you guys might like a look at one of the many WIPS I have at the moment. Here is a Predator that features the head and torso from Slayer Design Studio with arms/legs/gear I bashed together and cast in colors. Paint is still forthcoming. Enjoy!
  23. As I understand it, there will be some more info forthcoming. They have with-held showing anything but finished samples, so no proto pics. If I run across anything, I'll add it back here.
  24. VH- Just contact me with your wish list. If you need something specific, I should be able to help.
