About this project
WE ARE FUNDED!!!
We have lots of stretch goals planned, if fact we have just unlocked the Grimm Reapers, Zapper, Eagle Force Winter Trooper and the Modern Cat figure. The Grimm Reaper, Zapper, Eagle Force Winter Trooper and Modern Cat figures are now available as a single reward, Add On and Army Builder as long as we stay above our stretch goals. So please add those on to your current pledge so we can make sure these stretch goals stay unlocked. Let's see if we can make more stretch goals happen!
Check out the rest of our stretch goals at the bottom on this page.
Check out the Kickstarter Updates section for all the latest updates to the campaign including a give away for a R.I.O.T. Hideout play set and an a Eagle Force Aquatic Assault Boat.
Originally debuting in 1982, Eagle Force was a 3" die-cast action figure military-themed toy line created and designed by Bill Baron and Paul Kirchner. Even though only the initial assortment made it to toy shelves but it was enough to introduce us to Captain Eagle and his team of top military specialists with codenames such as Sgt. Brown, Big Bro', Harley, Turk and The Cat. They battled the evil forces of R.I.O.T. (Roving International Organization of Tyranny), lead by the evil General Mamba, assisted by Baron Von Chill, Beta Man the Arsonist, Nemesis the Saboteur, Savitar the Ninja, and an army of R.I.O.T. Shock Troopers.
Fresh Monkey Fiction and Remco Toys are teaming up to bring back Eagle Force. The long retired Captain Eagle is recruited back into active duty by his old teammate General Brown. Together they’re recruiting the next generation of Eagle Force team members to combat the re-emerging forces of R.I.O.T., a terrorist organization driven by revenge and desire for global domination.
These modern military action figures will bring back the sense of realism, action and fun that has been missing from toy shelves for the last few years.
Each Eagle Force figure stands 4” tall (1:18 scale) and has 14 points of articulation. They are intended to blend in perfectly with other figures in the same scale that share similar themes and designs.
We have created 15 figures for the initial assortment including 6 different army builders for both Eagle Force and R.I.O.T. Army builders are available as singles or in sets of 4. You can also Add-on figures to your existing pledge. Please read the ADD ON section below for more details.
Captain Eagle hasn't been seen since the tragic final battle with R.I.O.T. The loss of his teammates and the difficult command decisions he had to make under fire caused Captain Eagle to retire from active duty and retreat into solitude. To this day, he lives off the grid, haunted by the ghosts of his past, and the weight of the medals that were pinned to his chest.
General Brown was an original member of the elite Eagle Force Unit who took down R.I.O.T. He has served on the ground in elevating command positions from Desert Storm, to Mogadishu, to Kosovo. He was promoted to General in time for the Iraq War and commanded the Joint Special Forces in the Northern Provinces. He is currently heading up the Classified Operations Jurisdiction (C.O.J.) at the Pentagon.
The son of the legendary Eagle Force sniper, Stryker, Jr. shared his father's drive, motivation, and raw talents, but unfortunately not much of his discipline. This fact was endlessly frustrating to his superior officers as he made attempt after attempt to work his way into the British Special Air Service, but ultimately signed up with a third party military contracting firm. As a contractor, his skills evolved and he grew to near legendary status among the mercenary crowd, and he started taking independent assignments, not all of them completely on the up and up.
The future of warfare is often thought to be street-by-street, building-by-building, so when Eagle Force formed up anew, they considered an urban warfare specialist to be their top priority. Takedown's infamous dismantling of an armed insurgence in downtown Chicago had gotten his name on the news and on Captain Eagle's radar. Bringing him in initially as a tactical support representative and a member of the Eagle Force Officer's corps, it became quickly evident that he would be invaluable as "boots on the ground" and was moved to field operations, something Takedown could not be happier about. Leading his team the Thunder Squad, Takedown takes the fight against R.I.O.T. to the streets.
After a successful stint with the Army Rangers, Sgt. Bulldog's thirst for adventure still felt unquenched. His squad, nicknamed the Bulldog Brigade ran three tours back to back in the middle east and came back stateside ready to take some time off. When the threat of R.I.O.T. suddenly reared its ugly head and General Brown reached out to him, Sgt. Bulldog eagerly agreed to take up arms alongside his long time friend. Sgt. Bulldog and his brigade ran across General Brown's path several times and each time left a more indelible impression. An aggressive and tactical field sergeant, Bulldog is smart and skilled, two traits that will serve Eagle Force well. He is loyal to a fault, however, which can cause problems, especially when he looks past some potential shortcomings in his upper echelon of the Bulldog Brigade.
Hiding in the shadows, R.I.O.T.'s recent bid for world domination ruffled a few feathers along the way including one of their own, the mysterious Agent Grimm and his personal strike team, the Grimm Reapers. Caught in the crossfire of a failed operation, Agent Grimm was left for dead by the nefarious Baron Von Chill II, with most of his Grimm Reapers team decimated along the way. Disgrunted and swearing revenge on Chill and the rest of R.I.O.T., Grimm began reaching out to other operatives working alongside the terrorist organization to rebuild his Reapers. Agent Grimm and his personally selected operatives have come together to strike at the heart of R.I.O.T. and try to atone for their own part in their recent rise to power.
R.I.O.T. (Roving International Organization of Tyranny)
Nobody knows Fireball's true identity or how he came to be involved with R.I.O.T., but they do know his thirst for destruction all too well. Following in the footsteps of the previous Fireball, this current iteration has all of the obsessions with twice the body count. Unleashing a reign of terror across Europe, just as the united forces of several different military organizations was descending on him, he vanished. Off the grid for several years, he emerged alongside a team of Firebugs and has once again begun razing the country with cold, hard, flame.
Just as Fireball himself remains a mystery, the identities of his devoted followers is just as strange. Previously a loner, during the time he was underground, Fireball apparently enlisted the help of R.I.O.T. to recruit members to his cause, and they're all just as fiercely devoted to the goddess of flame as he is. Not afraid to risk their lives or safety for the next great explosion, the Firebugs fight eagerly alongside Fireball himself, dreaming of the day when the entire world is engulfed in flame.
Hornet is the deadliest of assassins. He was Kayo's most promising student, until he discovered the scriptures of a long forgotten War Cult. He became obsessed, and broke away from Kayo's dojo. Hornet is deadly with all weapons - edged and ballistic, and has modeled his uniform after the black and yellow colors of his lost God of Assassins, the yellow patches glowing brightly just before he kills.
The R.I.O.T. Commando is the elite wing of R.I.O.T.’s forces, specializing in urban assault, communications disruption, demolitions and extraction. They are heavily armed, yet light and mobile, relying on speed and surprise when conducting operations. The use of extreme measures is authorized when dealing with this formidable enemy.
The only son of the original Baron Von Chill, the younger Chill watched his father rise to the upper levels of European aristocracy, then come crashing down with the ultimate destruction of R.I.O.T. Swearing to himself that he would live to avenge hs father, he became obsessed with ever lasting life, creating a proprietary cloning technology. In the event of his death, his consciousness would synchronize with a cloned body and "revive" him into his new form. The side effect of this cloning system is skin discoloration, and some imperceptable mental degredation which each new form he takes. One must wonder how many more times he can be resurrected before his mental breakdown becomes more visible... and more dangerous.
With the drastic changes in the World's economy and the erosion of the global Cold War, it was quickly evident that the world had more pilots than it had aircraft for them to fly. One of R.I.O.T.'s first goals was to seek out and recruit the upper echelon of international combat pilots and work them into the R.I.O.T. command structure. The best of the best became part of the Vulture Squadron, an elite fighting force of aircraft led by Vulture and specially designed for quick launch urban bombing runs and air defense of R.I.O.T. headquarters. Vulture Squadron pilots can not only fly planes, but can also hold their own in land-based combat as well, though it's a good bet that they feel much safer with the plane wrapped around them.

What are Add-ons? Add-ons are not part of the core Kickstarter functionality, however you do have the ability to increase ANY amount to your Kickstarter pledge at anytime throughout the campaign. Offering Add-ons allows backers a way to add additional Kickstarter rewards to their already existing pledge
Add-ons can ONLY be purchased along with a pre-existing pledge level and are available for purchase with pledge levels of $20 and higher. Add-ons are not available for purchase separately as the prices include shipping discounts for International orders.
As Limited Kickstarter Rewards are not available as Add-ons it's important to note that if you want to pledge to a Limited Kickstarter Reward, please pledge to that Reward 1st before you Add-on any additional Add-on rewards.
In order to attach Add-ons to your order, just calculate the amount you'll need to pay based on the combination of the cost of the Add-on (see costs below) and the cost of your current pledge. You will then need to increase your existing pledge to that amount.
For example... You've pledged $23 (including shipping) for a Captain Eagle figure, and you want to Add-on a General Brown figure for $23 (including shipping). Your adjusted pledge total would then be $46. Just increase your pledge to that adjusted amount.
Below is a list of items available as Add-ons, along with costs (including shipping). Please remember add-ons costs below can ONLY be purchased along with a pre-existing pledge levels of $20.00 and higher.

Please keep track of the names of the item(s) you've Added-on, as once the campaign is over we'll be sending out a BackerKit survey (see information on BackerKit below). In that survey you'll be asked to select your Add-ons. Don’t worry, if your pledge total is not exactly right you’ll have the opportunity to add additional funds to complete your order by using your credit card during the BackerKit process. You’ll also be able to add and pay for additional Add-Ons at this time as well!
If you have any other questions about Add-Ons please don’t hesitate to ask just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be aware that these costs are the Kickstarter price for backers only. The figures will see a price increase once they are available at retail after the Kickstarter ends.
Here is a breakdown of where we are allocating our funding.
PLEDGE MANAGEMENT AND SURVEYS:
We'll be using BackerKit to manage this campaign once the Kickstarter is over. BackerKit is a service outside of Kickstarter which provides a more powerful survey feature than what Kickstarter provides. It allows you to manage your pledge even after the campaign ends. Registering with BackerKit will be a requirement for all backers in order for us to better manage your order. If you do not want to register with BackerKit please do not pledge to this campaign.
If you have any questions regarding BackerKit please let us know.
Thanks again for supporting Eagle Force. We welcome any feedback you want to send our way. Please check the F.A.Q. section below for answers to any questions you might have. You can always contact us anytime as well.

Craig Owen, Remco Toys
Please note: All the product images shown throughout the Kickstarter are prototypes We will strive to produce a finished product that meets or exceeds the quality of these approximations, but please understand that the final product is subject to change.
Risks and challenges
No project of this size is without risk. This biggest challenge will be to meet our deadlines and remain on schedule. To ensure the best products possible and meet the standards that our fans expect, we want to make sure we give ourselves enough time to engage and communicate with our manufacturers. Communication with our backers is equally important to us, because without your support, this project would not be possible. Our goal is to keep our backers informed as often as we can, and keep them up-to-date on any potential changes along the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
