Amazing Heroes is a 4.5" retro inspired Vintage Superhero Action Figure line that is reminiscent of the action figures from the ‘80s that feature colorful and iconic classic heroes.
Thanks to you, the Kickstarter for the first wave of Amazing Heroes action figures was funded back in September! Sadly, we didn’t crack into our stretch goal figures of Silver Streak and Champion of Mars. Since we’ve had so many of you asking when we’ll get to them, we’re here to Kickstart these two figures plus Mike Allred's Madman, with our Wave 1.5.
What are we offering now that’s different from Wave 1? If you missed out on the chance to buy Black Terror, Captain Action, the Golden Age Dare-Devil, Stardust, Blank Slate, or the Green Turtle the last time around, you can now get them. Additionally, you can pledge for Silver Streak and Champion of Mars. Plus, to sweeten the pot, we’re also issuing Artist Edition cards that feature original art commissioned exclusively for Amazing Heroes.
For the artists, we’ve got some of the best:
Tom Fowler (Howtoons [Re]Ignition, Quantum and Woody) will tackle the Black Terror.
Mike Allred (Madman, Silver Surfer) is handling the duo-toned Golden Age Dare-Devil!
Reilly Brown (Power Play, Lobo, Deadpool,) is bringing Champion of Mars to action-packed life.
Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash, Grayson) gives us the red-clad Silver Streak.
Phil Hester (Green Arrow, Flash: Season Zero, Green Hornet) gives us the first superhero action figure—Captain Action!
None other than Gene Yang and Sonny Lieu (The Shadow Hero) are giving us Green Turtle.
And last, but definitely not least, we’ve got Erik Larsen (The Savage Dragon) tackling Stardust the Super-Wizard!
To as we mentioned to top it off, we have decided to unlock our special stretch goal, Mike Allred’s Madman so we can add him to our collection.
Not only will good ol’ Frank Einstein be the first modern age character to become an Amazing Hero, but this is the first time he’ll ever be made in this scale. It’s been a while since we got a Madman figure, and we hope to be the one to get it in your hands.
Each figure is offered individually or you can save some money and purchase a full set of figures.
We’ve also got some really great rewards.
We have a limited amount of individually numbered Kickstarter Exclusive Signed Artist Editions. These are offered individually or as a full set of 8. The full set includes the Artist Edition Blank Slate figure by Mitch Ballard, who will only be available in this set.
We've also added a set of 9 figures that includes Madman as well.
A PDF of the Amazing Heroes Handbook. Written by comics historian Christopher Irving (Graphic NYC/Leaping Tall Buildings with photographer Seth Kushner, and The Blue Beetle Companion) with design by David Go. The handbook features historical information and original Golden Age stories. Plus as a special reward you can also get the original cover art by Mitch Ballard.
Our popular D.I.Y. figure "The Blank Slate" comes polybagged or with a unique cardback that you can design yourself and have printed by Ka-Blam Publishing.
If you previously bought a set of Amazing Heroes, as part of our initial kickstarter, you can now order a set of 5 interchangeable Artist Edition card backs to compliment your set.
Plus, if you're a fan of the classic interpretation of our characters, we also offer interchangeable card backs featuring classic Golden Age artwork. These are offered individually or as a full set of 7.
Since we’re sure you’ve had your own heroes in mind, we can even professionally customize a hero using our standard body and head options.
Madman has had a variety of looks over the years so we also have a custom Madman option, where we will professionally customize a figure into one of Madman many looks or one of your own design.
Plus we also have set of 4 Madman stickers. Made of industrial and resistant vinyl, the Madman stickers are suitable for car windshields and outdoor use.

As you can see from these recent factory images, production is already underway on Wave 1.
We still have time to get Silver Streak and Champion of Mars into this first round of production and into your hands next summer.
Thanks again for supporting Amazing Heroes. If you want to know more about Amazing Heroes please check out the original Amazing Heroes Kickstarter page.
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.
Please note: All the product images shown throughout the Kickstarter are mock ups. 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.
We will also be using a third party site, FundAFull to manage the campaign. As this campaign has many Rewards and Add Ons we've set up an Amazing Heroes Pledge Calculator to help you calculate what your total pledge amount should be. You can find out more about FundAFull at www.fundafull.com.

Many of our items are available as an ADD-ON. Please check the pledges on the right to see if they are avaiible as an Add-On. This means you can "add-on" the cost of this pledge to your current pledge amount if you want to add it to your order. The Amazing Heroes FundAFull calculator should be able to help you in calculating your overall pledge amount.
If you are ordering an ADD-ON to your order you will need to add shipping, but the ADD-ON shipping is only 1/2 the cost of what's listed above.
Here is an example:
If you are ordering from Canada and pledged the “Amazing Heroes Level w/Madman ” $165 (+ $25 shipping) for a total of $190 and you wanted to ADD-ON a "Blank Level" for $15 to your pledge, the "Blank Level" ADD-ON shipping would be 1/2 of what's listed for that level above--so that's $6.50(instead of $13.00). So your total would be $190 (+ $25 standard shipping) + $15 (+ $6.50 discounted shipping) for a grand total of $236.50.
It's important to note that if you want to pledge to a Limited Reward, please pledge to that Reward 1st before you ADD ON any additional ADD ON rewards.
Again the Amazing Heroes FundAFull calculator should be able to help you in calculating your overall pledge amount including shipping.
Please contact us with any questions
For this current Kickstarter, each Amazing Heroes figure comes in a collector friendly clamshell with the standard Amazing Heroes generic cardback. Plus you also get an interchangeable artist edition cardback for your specific character.
This project would not be possible without the hard work and generosity our contributing artists as well as these amazing folks:
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
