Tooling update, Wave 2 preview…and cards or boxes?
We’ve begun our tooling phase for the figures…here are a few images.
Just a bunch of steel blocks…I know it doesn’t look very exciting but we’ll be using these steel tools for a while so it’s a thrill for us to see them. The tools will take about a month to finalize then we should start seeing samples toward the end of July…we’ll be sure to share images of those as soon as we get them.
We’re also working up the design for the packaging. We were originally planning on doing boxes for the line but we’ve been toying with the idea of collector friendly card backs..like our Amazing Heroes line. If we go this route it would look something like this. Post a comment and let us know what you think. Do you think this is a better direction?
Also we wanted to share a couple of reveals for our Eagle Force Wave 2 kickstarter that we plan to launch in early 2018 once we’ve shipped the Wave 1 figures to the Kickstarter backers. Wave 2 will have characters from Eagle Force, Monster Force and Eagle Force: Heroes vs Villains. Here are a couple Eagle Force reveals…these are early work in progress images.
We’re looking forward to getting Wave 2 off the ground early next year.
The Goldie Hawk pack follows Goldie's secret solo mission from 1987. Goldie races to answer a distress beacon from an abandoned R.I.O.T. laboratory in Germany. Who and what she encounters will play out in Eagle Force Mega and Eagle Force Returns! …wait did I just mention Eagle Force Mega…wonder what that is? If this kickstarter hits it’s final stretch goal you’ll find out.
Thanks again for the support everyone.
