Eagle Force Strikes trading card Kickstarter


Hey Folks

I wanted to give you a heads up that The Drawn Word has just launched the Eagle Force Strikes trading card Kickstarter. 

This card set reveals the backstory (now largely declassified) of the 1980-1985 Eagle Force team! De-Classified after 30+ years are the battles waged by Eagle Force and R.I.O.T. against one another. The initial pack features the following missions:

  • Operation: Big Ben
  • Operation: Motor City
  • Operation: Black Tar
  • Operation: Sarcophagus
  • Operation: Rook
  • Operation: Desert Heat
  • Operation: Backyard (R.I.O.T.’s invasion of Washington, D.C.)

Also present are The Eagle Files, Captain Eagle’s own thoughts on his team members:

  • Captain Eagle
  • Kayo
  • Goldie Hawk
  • Redwing
  • Sgt. Brown
  • Stryker
  • Harley
  • Wild Bill
  • Zapper

Get the limited Captain Eagle Metal card in the Golden Eagle level, or get both him and General Mamba in the Mamba level! The Reinforcements level gets you the Eagle Force Strikes! set, Eagle and Mamba metal cards, and limited metal cards of Sgt. Brown and Baron Von Chill. You'll also get a 1st look at a character from our upcoming Eagle Force: Monster Force line

On another note, here are a couple images from the packaging art that have now been colored.

Also, we're working on color guides for the factory...for those interested in behind the scenes stuff, we'd thought share these images.



Bill and Craig! 

Paying it forward! Cause we’re all trying to make cool stuff! 

Each update (or so) will have a short blurb at the bottom where I try to raise awareness about other cool projects, most of them will be Kickstarter projects, but other stuff will be mentioned as well.

TOYS THAT TIME FORGOT - A book about unproduced toys

Do you remember back in the early 1980s, playing with all of the toys based on the sci-fi fantasy film Krull produced by Knickerbocker Toys? What about the Masters Of The Universe meets Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots line that was Hasbro’s Tribes range in the early 1990s? Or all of those ReSaurus-made action figures and role-play accessories based on the break out video game Oddworld in 1997? No? Well, that’s because they were never made...find out the secrets in this new book "Toys that time forgot". Now on Kickstarter.
