THE CAMPAIGN :

Do you remember the Eagle Force toy line from the early 80s? 

No many folks do, but don't worry, Fresh Monkey Fiction and Zica Toys are teaming up to give this crack military team another fighting chance with the EAGLE FORCE RETURNS toy line later this summer. These modern 4" scale 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.

But before that campaign launches, dive into Eagle Force with this limited set of 20 trading cards that looks into Eagle Force's past history and to it's future as a revived toy line!

Eagle Force was originally a 2.5 inch die-cast action figure military-themed toy line created in the early 1980s.  

Eagle Force is an elite United States Government counter-terrorist task force organization composed of special forces experts, created to combat the Roving International Organization of Tyranny (R.I.O.T.)--a terrorist organization driven for nothing less than world domination.

Commanded by Captain Eagle, Eagle Force includes Big Bro, The Cat, Harley, Kayo, Redwing, Sgt. Brown, Stryker, Turk, Wild Bill, Zapper, and Goldie Hawk.

R.I.O.T. is led by General Mamba, with Baron Von Chill, Beta Man, Nemesis the Saboteur, Savitar the Ninja, and an army of Shock Troopers.

We want to create a set of 20 Eagle Force Trading Cards that will explore some of the original characters..and also provide some hints of what characters will be returning later this year.

Each card set will include Vintage Cards with art by original Eagle Force designer Paul Kirchner as well as a character bio on the back. 

We'll also have some Modern Cards with original art by Steve Butler and original Eagle Force designer Paul Kirchner.

Also included are images of the new Eagle Force Returns Action Figures. PLUS as a bonus when you open your set your get a 1st look at a brand new figure that we'll keep top secret until we ship these sets.

We will also be offering a limited number of original SKETCH CARDS by Steven Butler, Chris Faccone. and Mitch Ballard.

These are example cards ONLY and will NOT be included.
These are example cards ONLY and will NOT be included.

Plus as a tribute to Eagle Force's original die-cast metal design we are offering a limited edition "Kickstarter Only" CAPTAIN EAGLE METAL CARD with the option to have it SIGNED by original Eagle Force designer Paul Kirchner. This card will ONLY be available during this Kickstarter. 

For fans of the vintage line you can get 6"x 8.5” reproductions of the Original Eagle Force cards backs of Captain Eagle and General Mamba.

If you're looking for more of a personal touch to your trading cards. Steve Butler will draw your likeness on either a Eagle Force Solider or a R.I.O.T. Trooper and we'll produce a unique metal card that you can add to your set.

We also have a RIOT Stealth Glider Level, for those who want something really unique.

These are plastic display items for display ONLY and NOT FLYING VERSIONS.

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.
