A New Adventure Begins!

ZICA Toys is very excited to present a new take on an old favorite from the action figure toy aisles, Adventure People! With the help of Eleventyplex, Boss Fight Studios, and other talented artists, this new line will have the aesthetics and articulation features that are most popular with today's modern action figure collectors. Standing 4” tall (1:18 scale), they will blend in perfectly with other figures in the same scale that share similar themes and designs.

The first assortment will be broken down into two series, Captain Action and Comic Action Heroes. This is the approach we want to take throughout the entire line, with all of the different series falling under the Adventure People brand name. By using the same basic aesthetics and articulation design across all of the characters in their respective series, we hope to make it look like they're all part of the same action figure universe. The figures shown in the campaign are painted resin samples so they're a little rough around the edges in some areas. High quality construction, materials and paint applications will be top priority on the production figures.

The First Wave of Adventure

The first assortment will be comprised of 5 main figures which include Captain Action, Captain Evil, Captain Evil's Henchman, Action Jackson, and Jet Jungle.

 Captain Action Color Variant Figures (Classic Purple and Stealth Suit)

These figures are basically being offered as an exclusive since they will only be produced for the Kickstarter campaign. The classic purple version was chosen because it represents an actual costume color variant from the original Ideal Toys line. The gray stealth suit version is just for fun, plus it looks pretty cool!

 Articulation Features

Each figure will have multiple points of articulation, with the more notable ones being:

  • Head attachment is ball and socket.
  • Arms swivel at the elbow joint.
  • Waist articulation (torso/pelvis connection) is ball and socket.
  • Knees are double jointed.
  • Ankle joints have rocker design for more dynamic poses.

Each figure will include a total of 5 different interchangeable hand sets , 4 of which will offer alternate wrist articulation designs for a wider variety of weapon/accessory posing options.

Packaging

The figures will come in collector friendly window box packaging. Below is a rough mock-up of the design we plan to use. The background artwork will be different for each character. 

 Rewards & Add-ons

Risks and challenges

Unfortunately no project of this nature is without risk, especially when you're having to deal with production overseas. However, considering ZICA Toys has successfully tackled similar projects in the past, we feel very confident that we'll be able to keep things on track for this one. The factory we're using is one that we've seen the quality of their work first hand and were very impressed, plus we'll actually have a representative on site at the factory to carefully monitor the entire process from prototyping to production. All of the pieces needed for tooling production are ready to go so it's just a matter of sending everything to the factory and having them get the ball rolling.
