Back in July 2014, then newly formed Boss Fight Studio launched their Kickstarter campaign for their first series of independent action figures – Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. The Highly Articulated Character Kit System was set to provide top end 1/18th scale figures on various themes, the first being Greek Mythology. The Kickstarter blew original goals away, stretching over and over with tons of bonus items. Fast forward 1.5ish years later and the first batch of figures are finally in hand! We received our package yesterday afternoon and jumped into an all night session to bring you some HQ shots of the first figures, which are:
Wave 1 Medusa
Wave 1 Spartan Warrior
Wave 1 Coral Gorgon
Wave 1 Cursed Spartan
Wave 3 Black Racer Gorgon
Kickstarter Exclusive Bronze Spartan Talos
Also sent, but not shot yet were the Blank Bodies in Shadow Gray and Fire Orange. Shoots for those will be coming soon. Let’s take a look at the very first Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures after the break with 195 HD images!
You can also grab your copy of the Ultimate Spartan Convention Exclusive to stay complete over at NJCC, due to release at the show on April 3rd!
It was a long night, so for the most part I am going to let the pics speak for themselves below. Short version – Boss Fight delivered on all fronts. The figures are quality in sculpt, paint and feel. The paint detail especially on the snakes is crazy. We’ve seen em for a while, but once in hand they feel great – plastic quality is there, joints move smooth and parts pop on/off easy. Articulation is there for almost every pose. One thing that bothered me a bit, though not too much, the leg articulation. You can still do most poses, but there is no thigh or hip swivel, no knee or boot swivel. So for sideways lunging type poses, which I do a lot, you gotta rock a waist/ankle twist. Also, there are no ankle rockers, so in those type of poses the feet will not be flush with the floor. For the amount of work that went into them in all other areas it’s a good trade off with cost I’m sure. After these shoots they’ll be static for the most part for me, in mostly upright front facing positions.
Bottom Line – friggin awesome, better than expected once in hand. You can grab the non Kickstarter exclusive figures seen here right now over at BossFightShop.com!
Key shots here, full set of 195 pics after that!
