Boneyard & Jetstrike Action Figures - PlayWithThisToo
Boneyard and Jetstrike are highly articulated 6.5" action figures with interchangeable limbs, heads and combining weapons.
PlayWithThisToo is a company formed by toy industry professionals with years of experience. Our collective experience range from working with companies like Hasbro, Mattel, Diamond, Marvel and IDW Comics. Many on our team have worked on brands like Transformers, G.I.Joe, Star Wars, Batman, Jurassic Park, Minimates, Aliens and Thundercats just to name a few!
Boneyard and Jetstrike are the first two figures from our Lost Protectors 6.5” toy line of action figures. These figures have been sculpted with great detail, come fully painted and assembled. We also have 4 variant color choices of each figure as well as unpainted customizer editions, for a total of 10 figures to pick from!
Aimed primarily at collectors, these figures have a robust and layered play value. The figures’ joints are based on a ball joint system allowing for multiple parts swapping amongst themselves or with any other figures. Every figure comes with multiple swappable heads and hands. Each figure also features multiple 5mm pegs to plug armor or weapons into. The weapons are also interchangeable and can be combined via 5mm pegs to form countless new weapons of your own design. *These weapons (and in some cases the heads as well) will also be compatible with other toy lines.
FREE Black BMOGs - For anyone who has, will or changes their pledges $78 or more you will receive a free set of brand new black BMOG figures! BMOGs are small animal companions which can stand on their own or be used as weapons. BMOGs also feature 5mm ports and can be used with any weapon featuring a 5mm port. These go great with any of our figures!
Glow-In-The-Dark BMOGs - Introducing the Play In The Dark Action set of BMOGs! This set is available to anyone who has already pledged or will pledge for at least 1 $39 figure.

This Bronze Edition Boneyard and the "Repainted" Jetstrike are ONLY AVAILABLE to those who pledge $359 or more. THESE FIGUREs WILL NOT BE PART OF THE MIX AND MATCH OPTIONS. These figures are free with no further additional shipping charges required to anyone domestic or international. And again, the only way to get them is by pledging at the $359+ level.

MIX AND MATCH
Select from the various options how many figures you would like to pledge for. At the end of the Kickstarter you'll get a questionnaire where you can tell us which figures you want.
Example: If you select 2 figures they can be any 2 figures from the initial 10 options available. Or they could be 2 of the same figure. The choice is yours!
Another example: If you choose to pledge for 5 figures, you'll be able to select 5 different figures, 5 of the same figures, 4 of the same character and 1 different character or 3 of the same and 2 different characters all together. The choice is yours! Mix and match as you please.
"But what if I want more figures than the options available". That's cool too. Just pledge the proper amount to receive whatever amount of figures you want.
Example: If you want 20 figures pledge for the Pick 10 option, then pledge an additional $359 for the extra figure. So pledge $359 + $359 for a total of $718.
Another example: If you want 15 figures, then you would pledge for the Pick 10 option at $359 then add $36 per figure. International backers please add an additional $8 per figure for shipping.
Free glow-in-the-dark BMOG - There are only 150 Atomic Splatterpus' available. The only way to get 1 is by pledging for the PLAY WITH ALL 1O option. This option gives you 1 of all 10 figures available during the first round of this Kickstarter!

STRETCH GOALS We're going to keep our stretch goals under lock and key until we're close to reaching our funding goal. Let's keep the focus on the initial figures to make sure they get funded. But, let us know in the comments what type of stretch goals you'd prefer?
Figures - Because of minimum quantity runs required by the factories, any figures added into this Kickstarter can't be added in until a certain monetary level is reached so we can cover those high costs. So basically, additional new figures are a little further down the line. Tell us what you like from what we've shown in the past. Check out our Facebook page or website.
Head Shots - This concept involves offering different heads which are interchangeable with any of our figures. We would offer these extra heads in sets ranging from 3 to 6. What types of concepts would you like to see here? We could potentially send out polls asking which colors you like on each head.
Gear - These could consist of new wings, thrusters, swords, shields, helmets, blasters, axes etc. We could offer these sets in varying colors so you'll be able to power up just about any of our figures. Why types of concepts would you like to see here? Shown here are just a few concepts of what this extra gear could look like.
NEW BMOGS - Bio-Mechanical Ordinance Gestalts - These small animal companions feature 5mm ports and pegs which allow you to connect them our 6.5" figures or onto their weapons. The BMOGs can also be used as weapons themselves!
New Appendages - That sounds weird... Right? New appendages... We're talking about new forearms, hands, feet, torsos, crotches... Stuff like this helps us build our tooling library so we could offer new figures in a quicker manner. Why types of concepts would you like to see here?
Tech Drones - These small robotic companions feature limited articulation. They are built from parts with 5mm ports to assemble or reassemble as you wish. These parts can work as individual weapons for the larger 6.5" figures or can combine with the other weapons of the 6.5" figures via 5mm pegs/ports to create even larger weapons. Shown here are just some of the various Tech Drone concepts we have planned.
Digital Comic Book - A number of our followers have asked for more story than just the bios of the characters. This comic would come emailed to you in PDF format. We're looking at anywhere from 12 to 24 pages plus a cover. Cover and pages would all be colored. *If we have enough capital we will print the comic and include it with every order shipped.
Risks and challenges
Creating an entire action figure line from concept art to production is a very long process. Despite our best efforts to find a production facility in the United States, our figures will be produced overseas in China. We will be using a States-side production management team to oversee manufacturing in China. If needed, we will make a trip to the factory ourselves to oversee the production process once it begins. Because we are using an overseas facility and cannot be present during the entire production run delays can occur.
Sometimes unavoidable delays in product production can occur, ranging from shipping delays, customs issues, and production setbacks. We have done a lot of work upfront to make the production process as simple as possible for our overseas partners. We will rely on our many years of expertise to ensure the best product quality and address any production issues.
We have secured a manufacturing outlet but if this changes we have alternatives in place. We would be able to change over to one of these alternates if a situation arose and, while it would delay production, said production would still be able to go forward.
Sometimes concept or control art must be updated to address manufacturing issues. If any issues come up during production requiring a slight change in color or design we will keep all backers up to date on it. If something like this does occur it should be small changes that many people might not have even noticed.
