Hey everyone!

Well we are off to an amazing start, we’re almost 1/2 way to our goal in less than 24 hrs! THANK YOU! You guys are amazing! We would not be here without you.

As some of you noticed we decided to launch a few days early, the approval process took a lot less time than we expected, so we thought why not get it out there. We figured we'd push it out there, put out press releases this week, then maybe we’d reach $25K by next weekend…oh man, were we wrong. You all hit the ground running.

We’ve been working toward this launch for the better part of 3 years. It’s super surreal that the launch day is finally here. BIG shout outs to Boss Fight Studios, especially Erik Arana, his original design work help to visualize and kick off this whole line. The Boss Fight design and sculpting work really is the bases for all that you see. We’ll be posting some updates along the way to show some behind the scenes stuff from not only Boss Fight, but also Arlen Pelletier, Joe Harris and Justin Bell. All of whom went out of their way to contribute to getting us up and running.

We’ve had a lot of folks ask about the limited release of Eagle Island, the gliders and the communication stations. These items are custom hand-made to order pieces by J&R Toys, so we had to limit the amount we could offer. Trust us, we want to make more, but at this time because of the nature of these items they need to be limited. Since there was such strong demand, and we did launch early, some folks missed out of the Deluxe ALL IN Reward. We will be adding 10 more Deluxe ALL IN rewards on Thursday, September 1st, the date of the originally planned launch. This way if you missed out on this reward you will have the opportunity to get one. We’ll also be offering these items after the Kickstarter as well, although it should be noted the Eagle Island gunner station will only be available during the kickstarter.

So what’s next? We’re going to do all we can to get the Kickstarter out there to a larger audience, but we need your help as well. Please help us by sharing the Kickstarter link on social media, it’s the best way to help us reach our goal. We had a amazing start, but we still have the rest of the hill to climb so Eagle Force can return to action.

I’ll be sending out updates 1-2 times a week during the campaign. We’ll be posting behind the scenes images, character bios and a 1st look at some other upcoming Eagle Force projects. Plus I always try to pay if forward and mention other cool projects that I think folks would be into, so expect a few of those.

Thanks again everyone for supporting us. Please feel free to post a comment with feedback, we’d love to hear it.

Paying it forward! Cause we’re all trying to make cool stuff! 
Each update will have a short blurb at the bottom where I try to raise awareness to other cool projects, most of them will be Kickstarter projects, but other stuff will be mentioned as well.
