  1. Funded at $130,897... It was pretty wild at the end, I think it went up to 132,000 at one time. I think people adjusting their pledges as it got towards the end (I had to do the same, as I was relying on my toy sales to fund it and had a snafu with an overseas buyer I had to refund, ). One good thing, Bobby posted in the kickstarter... "As the final minutes tick down I wanted to give everyone a heads up that during the CrowdOx Survey, stretch goals will still be able to be unlocked. If the SWARM Trooper does not get unlocked tonight, it will during the survey. Keep the pledges coming. There will be more pledges coming next weekend during NJCC as well!" so, the good news, stuff can still be unlocked!
  2. Just announced... Swarm trooper and Kerak swapped, the next stretch goal is now Swarm trooper!
  3. This next video is extra special to me, because not only am I helping one friend, but two. If you didn't know about the 6" military action figure line by Bobby Vala that is on Kickstarter right now, stop what you're doing and go check it out... I'll wait. http://kck.st/35OFx8n In all seriousness though. It was an honor to be able to play around with some one of a kind, resin cast prototypes for this line. I've included a number of pictures I took while I did the review, please also check out the video as at the end, I get to sit down with one of my best friend's, Bill Nedrow. We talk a little about the web comics he is writing for Vala's Action Force. Keep in mind, these are resin prototypes and they are printed at 104% to scale. So in the comparison pictures, they will look a little big, that is by design, as they will shrink when the molds are cut for production. If the name Action Force sounds familiar to you, it's not the Action Force from the UK that you're thinking of. Hasbro used to own the name, but left the copyright alone and while Bobby was shopping around for a name for his 6" military line, he saw that it was available and now, he is the proud owner of the name Action Force. He created his own universe for the Action Force, and you can read some of the back stories, HERE. Not only was he able to gain the rights to use the name Action Force, but he found a number of old names that used to belong to GI Joe, left on the curb with yesterday's garbage and one he didn't hesitate to scoop up, was his favorite mail-away Joe, Steel Brigade. So while the Steel Brigade still has it's lore in GI Joe mythos, the new Steel Brigade of the Action Force, it everything you loved in that favorite helmeted trooper, but a whole lot more. Along with The Steel Brigade, there are 2 other character figures available right now, Condor and Bone Collector. There is also a troop builder stretch goal unlocked and we are getting closer and closer to unlocking another one and his gear. I for one can't wait to get mine, as the kickstarter is already funded, now it's up to us to unlock some stretch goals so we can get more troops for our toybox! The two prototypes I got the chance to look at were none other than Condor himself and a Stretch Goal female trooper, Eclipse. While she's a little ways away from being unlocked, you never know with these kickstarters. I for one, hope she gets unlocked, or gets close and is available by some other means(pre-order, future kickstarter, etc). Let me know if you pledged, who are you excited for and which is your favorite faction?
  4. Join me today looking at the New Walmart Exclusive Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker Black Series Figure. I got this in a trade with a Canadian collector.It's Starting to hit stores now in the states.
  5. Yeah, would loved a more vintage look, but maybe they're saving that for the Ultimates, kinda has a vibe of those purple carded rereleases... I'll have to get me a Rocksteady for the Rhino collection,
  6. I'll give it a shot, I just don't think the main character is that intriguing, lol. Unlike the imperials and what not. Still, I'll see how it is first. Who knows, maybe Cal will grow on me(like Ahsoka and Ezra did).
  7. You guys get an exclusive look at my next video. It uploads on Sunday, but watch it here first on TNI. -EDIT: I just made the video public as it was being wonky linking to it while in private. Join me today looking at the New Game Stop and EB Games Exclusive Purge Trooper Black Series Figure. I found this up in Canada at an EB Games in Montreal.
  8. Must be fun to just pop in and watch them direct Star Wars, lol. Hopefully JJ brings a little love back to Star Wars.
  9. Hey guys, long time no see. I wanted to try something a little different. Please take a look at my new video taking a look at some of the Fortnite figures from Jazwares. I also took a slew of photos and will try to upload them into this post.
  10. I'm glad... but what a waste of money to reopen all those stores... hopefully they revamp the heck out of the stores, just sad about all the people that lost their jobs because of this... wonder if they get first dibs.
  11. I don't, if I could have, I would have, it's a different thing all together.
  12. Looks like a bum,lol. Can't wait to see "The Joker" though.
  13. Did you get these in store or online?
  14. They could make the Phantom, would still be huge, lol... so I doubt it... but, make it for 3.75", we need a good new vehicle.
