About

MODULAR ARMORED RANGE VEHICLE (MARV)

Wayward Goat Collectibles is proud to present the Modular Armored Range Vehicle (MARV). The MARV is a highly-detailed 1:18 scale military vehicle intended for use with your favorite action figure and gaming lines. 

About the Modular Armored Range Vehicle  

The Modular Armored Range Vehicle was created to fill a huge void in the collectible toy market. For the last several years, the availability of high-quality 1:18 scale vehicles has been in steady decline. The MARV packs the detailing, features and functionality collectors desire combined with durable construction reminiscent of classic toy lines from years past.

Our top priority was to create a vehicle worthy of approval from action figures collectors. The first step was figuring out what the MARV would look like: inspiration was taken from multiple real-world armored vehicles currently in use by militaries around the globe. Next up was working out the scale: the MARV was built at true 1:18 scale, so it can appropriately fit both 3.75" AND 4" action figures. From there the MARV was carefully crafted to incorporate a wide range of features and functions.

Funding Goal

We will need to raise $125,000 to get the Modular Armored Range Vehicle deployed into collections around the world. This base goal covers not just the tooling and production costs, but also packaging, freight, and final shipping to our backers. We have also included quality control and safety testing into our goal to ensure that the MARV will be a top-notch product to meet the highest of expectations. The graph below outlines how Kickstarter funds will be allocated for MARV production and fulfillment.

Who is Wayward Goat?

Wayward Goat Collectibles is a new endeavor lead by me, Greg Bridgeman. I am a longtime fan and collector of action figures, going from playing with them as a child to carefully posing and displaying them on a shelf as I entered middle school. I have been selling toys online and at shows for the past five years, and finally took the plunge on crafting a brand and producing my own items. The Modular Armored Range Vehicle is the first of many ideas I plan on bringing to fruition; it is truly a vehicle from a collector, for collectors. 

Risks and challenges

Most of the project risk will involve potential delays in the manufacturing process. We are working with an experienced firm in the toy industry, The Big Eye Studio, to facilitate production. Their connections and guidance will help to ensure the Modular Armored Range Vehicle is a high-quality product and completed in a timely fashion.
