About

Cryptid Toys would like to launch this line of 1:12 (6”) scale army builders called Army Alphas but needs YOUR help! This is your chance to get highly detailed Soldiers, SWAT officers, Skeletons, and more into your collections!   

Scale/Compatibility: 

These figures are 1:12 scale (6”) and in scale with with Marvel Legends, DCUC, DC Multiverse/Movie Masters, and many other collector lines. Some parts such as removable vests, removable heads, and weapons will also be compatible across various lines.  The heads, for instance, fit on the mid-size Marvel Legends male body.  The heads, necks, and vests from all Soldier and SWAT figures are compatible with any of the Soldier or SWAT figure variations offered in the line. Part swap to your heart's desire!

Articulation:

All Soldier and SWAT figures WILL receive double-hinged elbows, bicep swivels, and thicker thighs like the Grey Prototype and articulation diagram. Although this change is not shown in the fully painted prototypes, the final figures WILL have these changes. Take a look at the Grey Prototype pictured, in the video, and in the articulation diagram below. This is the body that all the Soldier and SWAT figures will be made on.

Accessories:

All figures come with interchangeable heads or hands plus several accessories. Check the individual images below to see what each one comes with.

Construction: 

These figures will be made with high quality PVC plastic. The joints of the figures will be POM plastic. There will be NO clear pegs/joints of any kind that have been known to increase the chance of breakage. The removable vests will be made with softer PVC so they retain flexibility and do not hinder the torso articulation as much.

Packaging: 

Each figure will come in a resealable window box package similar to several other action figure lines. 

Pricing structure: 

These figures start at an affordable $25 each. The more you buy, the more you save!   Also to note: If these figures are sold after the campaign, there will not be any discounts. This Kickstarter is the only place where you’ll be able to get discounts based on the amount you buy. Each backer will receive an online survey after the campaign ends where they will specify the exact figures they want to receive based the amount they pledged.

Delivery: 

All orders will be shipped immediately after the items arrive from the factory. The estimated delivery date is JAN '17 but that is being generous with the time and they very well could arrive sooner than that.

Risks and challenges

Whenever producing items in overseas factories, unexpected things may cause problems or delay production. If these do occur, they will be resolved as quickly as possible and most importantly, all backers will be kept in the loop. The factory being used also has ample experience producing highly articulated figures and has good communication. Every measure will be taken to be sure that in the end, high quality action figures are going into the hands of all the fans who helped make them possible.

All items shown are either prototypes or mock ups and are not the final production figures. Every measure will be taken to ensure that the final figures look as close as possible to these but some changes may occur.

All items are intended only for adult collectors (Age 15+) and should not be given to small children, as some parts may be a choking hazard.
