With two other action figure campaigns running in parallel on Kickstarter, the Skeleton Warriors project by October Toys needs your help. With four days remaining in its campaign, they are about $14K and change away from hitting their $45K target. With Kickstarter projects, it’s all or nothing – if you don’t get enough pledges to hit your funding goal, the project does not move forward.
In case this is your first time hearing about the Skeleton Warriors, the proposed toys are a revival of the Skeleton Warriors cartoon from 20 years ago. The figures will be 3.75-inch scaled, the first of which will be super-tall Baron Dark, the skeleton big bad at 5-inches tall. The figures are Glyos-compatible, and there’s also special reward tiers that include an exclusive “Skeleden” – part skeleton, part Pheyden – designed by Matt Doughty of Onell Design.
If you’re not familiar with Philip Reed and his site, BattleGrip, you should check it out. When I started AFP, somehow Philip found the site, and he’s been a really great supporter from our early days – and he’s just that way in the collecting community – a terrific guy.
A couple of tips – you’ll need Adobe Acrobat Reader or an alternative PDF reader, and the best way to read this magazine is to set it up in 2-page view (View -> Page Display -> Two Page View) and select the option to show the cover page on its own (View -> Page Display -> Show Cover Page in Two Page View). This will let you see some of the beautiful 2-page spreads, like the Predator Trophy Case above, in all their glory.
