These look pretty cool. They are 4" and have 13 POA and are about $10. I hope they do good and show that girl action figures are more popular than Hasbro says they are.

The Elemental super heroines has been fully funded and its only been 3 days. Still plenty of time to go. It seems like the 1:18 scale figures that have already been designed and have prototypes do really well. I hope more small companies see this as an avenue to get their products out in the future.

Boss Fight Studios' Kickstarter campaign should be starting soon. They have mentioned some blank figures for customizing as stretch goals. They will have both male & female bodies in different colors.
Here is one of their males in Caucasian flesh tone.

Boss Fight Studios Vitruvian Hacks is live
Funding period June 2nd, 2014 - July 11th 2014
goal of 75, 000
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/813878470/boss-fight-studios-vitruvian-hacks-action-figures

They have lots of stretch goals to include blank figures used for customizing. The buy in for these start at about $30 each figure. Since this is kickstarter and you are really just giving money to the people to complete their project this is a little understandable but quite expensive. I hope after they have the molds created they are able to use them to their advantage and lower the price per figure.

It appears the 1:18 scaled kickstarters are doing really well. So far, the past 5 this year have all been really successful.

Marauder Task Force gaming figures is in full production now.
I am Elemental female super heroines is in production and can be pre-ordered at BBTS.
Legends of Cthulhu was just at Gen-con promoting their product. It has been picked up by Diamond Distributors and can be pre-ordered at BBTS as well.
Skeleton Warriors just squeacked by with an ending of $50k. I think that had a lot to do with 3 other KS going at the same time.
Vitruvian HACKS by Boss Fight Studios is finishing up closing their KS and fundaful. They picked up an additional $40k in funding through post campaign add-ons.
Mythic Legions has a tentative KS date starting in January or 2015

I have a feeling that this will continue to succeed especially since Hasbro continues to produce the same re-done figures over and over...
I know the love for Star Wars is strong here and it is where I started the long road of collecting 1:18 scaled action figures but these Kickstarters are a breath of fresh air for me.
