Amazing Heroes Action Figures Wave 2 (Canceled)
Fresh Monkey Fiction is proud to announce Wave 2 of Amazing Heroes, our series of 4.5" retro-inspired super hero action figures.
We have decided to cancel this campaign. You can read more about it here in this update. If you're a fan of these characters don't worry we're going to be relaunching the line as a more modern 4" figure with more articulation and accessories.
Please follow Fresh Monkey Fiction on social media if you want to learn more about the relaunch.

"Transported to a strange world by a mysterious villain from beyond the stars, Earth's most Amazing Heroes try to defend themselves from their fiercest enemies as they fight a hidden battle that could annihilate the universe."
Thanks to over 300 amazing backers we funded the Wave 1 and Wave 1.5 of retro superhero action figure line Amazing Heroes in late 2015. Series 1 included classic Golden Age characters such as Black Terror, Golden Age Daredevil, Green Turtle and Stardust, along with more modern characters like Captain Action and Mike Allred’s Madman.
It was such a huge success that we’re following it up with Amazing Heroes Series 2.
Each Amazing Heroes Series 2 figure stands 4.5 tall, features 5 classic retro styled points of articulation and comes with collector-friendly resealable packaging.
Amazing Heroes Series 2 includes:
Gifted with great power by the alien Merk, Horatio Hellpop is cursed with the task of eradicating mass murderers as Nexus. Hellpop continues his grim mission while serving as defender of the lunar refuge Ylum - and striving for a normal life. First appearance: Nexus #1 (1981).
Nexus was created by Mike Baron and Steve Rude. Signed limited editions are also available.
Also please consider donating to Steve's son Brandon's Go Fund Me Fundraiser. Brandon has a medial condition called cryptosporidium, a parasite found in recreational water that attacks the immune system, and the family can use your support.

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. Even though we have the support of our reliable production partners, we will be doing our production overseas. 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
