    I saw that.

    Looks great, but the faces look a bit cartoony.

    That V2 Eclipse would be useful for a custom base depending on how easy limb swaps would be. I’ll be keeping an eye on this to see how the stretch goals go, I can’t say as I super optimistic to see a line like this get funded at $30+ per figure.

    Yeah I don’t collect these but they looked good enough to make anyone interested aware. I believe these guys were part of Hasbro‘D Joe team that got laid-off and started this instead. I feel like supporting them for that alone.

    Eclipse and Trigger are very interesting to me due to their "Valkyrie and Blackbeard" kinda look. I like them but I'm vaguely disappointed that they don't look a bit more realistic. I would've loved if they could stand in for R6S operators.

    I'd get behind this if the initial offerings were more interesting. I'm more interested in a couple characters in the stretch goals, but at $30 each I really can't justify pledging for guys I'm not interested in to maybe eventually get guys I am.

    It looks like things are moving along with the Action Force products. I've had Sarge, Kerak and a couple of the weapons sets on pre-order for a while now. According to the Valaverse website, it looks like the comic books and some of the weapons are going to become available tomorrow (perhaps just for those who backed the Kickstarter??). They also provided some updates on the release timeframe for the figures themselves via a recent YouTube livestream...looks like the figures won't be showing up until late Spring or early Summer.

    This is the weapon set. I believe they are gonna be $30 which seems worth it to me. He has these in hand so they dont have to wait for the rest of the ks items to finish to be available. Screenshot_20210217-204201_Chrome.jpg

    Nice...didn't know it would come with all of that stuff. And yeah, I think the asking price is probably worth it given how much stuff it comes with (15 firearms and 6 bladed weapons for $30 doesn't seem like a bad deal).

    Yeah, there are some other weapon sets that were previously offered which were some of these broken into smaller groups and with paint apps that should come in with the ks stuff. But for as large a lot as this is I felt the asking price was good even if they are just solid black versions. I plan on picking a set up if they are still listed when I remember to check the site. I have the other sets on order already also from the ks. I think I got 4 or 5 figures. None of the "regular" urban figures i ordered all from the more individualized groups if I remember correctly.

    I was totally out of the loop on this stuff during the KS (wasn't really buying many 6" humanoid figures at the time). I PO'd the alpha and bravo weapon sets...but I like the plain black look of this set as well...maybe I'll get lucky and be able to score one. Realistic 1/12 scale weapons are kinda uncommon at reasonable prices, it seems.

    Yeah, that Steel Brigade is tempting.

    Just Slaughter for me right now. Might pick up Steel Brigade and a Swarm if I end up really liking Sarge.

    Welcome! Hopefully they start giving us some more stuff to talk about sooner rather than later.
