A couple new Kickstarters on the horizon.

Captain Action from ZICA toys. These will be done in a 4" modern style and the figures were designed by the good people at Boss Fight Studios.
The campaign will be for Captain Action and will have stretch goals of Dr. Evil, Action Boy, Lady Action, and Captain Action's car the Silver Streak, in that order.

Sometime in September is all I know at this point. I'll update as I know more.

Next up is Morphonauts.

There is 12 characters and they have some kind of magnetic joint that allows to mix-and-match parts. They are going to be about 4" and I think they will have 5 POA.
There may be a kickstarter for these in September.

Here are some pictures of the actual figures. I'm not sure if these are just 3D sculpts or actual figures though

Wouldn't that Action Man kickstarter have issues from the British Action Man (GI Joe).

That was a typo on my part I meant Captain Action not Action Man. I updated my post to reflect that. That has been postpones until October and he should have a prototype in time for the NYCC.

There is a new KS up from Legion XIV for a 4" basic army female.

The owner of that one just canceled it for now. He is re-working some of his designs and may start a different campaign a little later down the road. He has released other figures on his own before so I am fairly confidant he can release these.

It looks like we will be heading into another kickstarter action figure season again.

Currently running

INVICTA Challenge - Leadership games and toys This one is for a 4" Turner Turnbull figure from his role during the World War 2 D-Day invasion. Along with the figure there is also a comic book and some leadership challenge games. Sculpting will be done by the Four Horsemen
The project leader has asked for input from the collecting community on what would get them excited about this line. If anyone has some input feel free to post it here and I will pass it along to him. Or feel free to contact him through the Kickstarter campaign.

And also a prototype for a 4" Rough Riders Teddy Roosevelt.

Thanks for all those fantastic updates!

The Turner figure looks awesome, and female Cobra troops... pretty cool.

Also, unfortunately that last set of images doesn't appear to be working...

Our project is a bit different from the others since we're not doing figures but rather premium foam trays for storing loose figures. We wanted to help collectors store, protect, organize,....and for the gents who are married, compress your mammoth action figure collections. We are collectors too, so this is something really important to us.

Here is our Promo Video:
