TruForce Collectibles: Mega Man X Action Figure

$290,656

We're making the coolest figure of X to hit the market! Keep reading to learn more...

Who are we?

TruForce Collectibles is a brand new toy/action figure manufacturer whose goal is to bring toy collectors from around the world, incredible representations of their favorite characters in action figure format at an affordable price! We want to give fans that ‘wow factor’ they crave while also providing the articulation, detail and craftsmanship fans have come to expect in today’s competitive action figure toy market. As true fans ourselves, we know what it takes to produce a quality collectible…we meticulously pay attention to the nitty gritty details and we don’t settle for anything less than the best.

But we need your help…

We’ve recently acquired the rights from Capcom to create one of video gaming’s most popular and widely recognized characters ever…Mega Man! This is an officially licensed product and we want to bring him to life on your shelf in a style that is fresh and unique.

Behold:

As you can see in the illustration and official prototype image, X from Mega Man X is still the character we all know and love but with an added stylized flavor we think is really great. Sure there are tons of Mega Man figures on the market today but none quite like this. This rendition of X is beautifully proportioned and features sleek lines throughout to help give the character a more detailed, streamlined, mechanized look.The official color palette features a variety of smooth blues with fluorescent accents and ruby gems in the helmet as well.

Here’s a more detailed list of what this figure will entail:

  • Fully poseable with over 30 points of articulation
  • Diecast armor parts on the chest, shin and feet
  • LED Functionality
  • Swappable face/hand parts
  • Combinable effects parts
  • Base/Support Stand
  • 6 inches tall
  • PVC, ABS, PA, Diecast materials
So now that you know the figure we want to produce, you may be wondering, “how can I help this come to fruition!? … I need this!” Well the answer is obviously through this kickstarter.

Here’s the rundown of where we’re at currently.

OK, so we’ve already created the 3D Mockups, decided what the unique features will be and even have a non-painted prototype ready.

Just to clarify, the effects are combinable. That means they are separated into three parts where you can connect just two or all three together (creating one huge mega blast). They will be cast in yellow translucent plastic and have cool shading painted on so that way when they attach to the cannon, and you turn the LED on, it will give off a ‘glowing effect’ like the blast is alive and charging. Very cool stuff!

The variant colors (the $230) tier will be cast in red translucent plastic.

Here's some pictures to show you how they will work:

Once the painted prototype has been approved, there’s the whole production part that takes up most of the budget: mold creation, material injection, paint, assembly, packaging and shipping. That’s the expensive stuff. But with your help, we can cover all this! Plus you get those cool backer rewards depending on your contribution.

Since we're still in the initial phase of production, there's a lot left to do on this guy. We decided to use the money raised from this kickstarter to help cover licensing costs, event promotion costs and production costs.

Here’s a closer look at how we intend to use the money:

 Exclusive Rider Chaser Print

This illustration is currently being worked on and will be the proposed design for our next product to accompany X! It is being drawn by none other than the same talented Capcom artist who drew the original illustration of X. As soon as it's ready we will post it here for you to see.

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to have a final figure in your hands by Summer 2015. Like any manufacturing project, unforeseen challenges may occur. Things such as scheduling delays, port strikes, material deficiencies and project miscommunications should all be taken into account.

Fortunately, we have a great relationship with our manufacturer. We’ve been to the factory in China and are confident with their capabilities and happy with their existing action figure products.
