Fans patiently awaiting the launch of the Animal Warriors of the Kingdom Kickstarter need to wait no longer. Spero Toys sent along word that their Kickstarter is now LIVE! You can jump on and get your pledge in right now by Clicking Here. Spero Toys is looking for a goal of $52,000. A pledge of $19 gets you at least one of the new Ape figures.
Spero Studios was founded by Jason Bienvenu and Brandon Gary, inspired by the 4-inch toy lines of the mid 70’s, 80’s & 90’s, Spero focuses on bringing back the fun and joy from these eras with high quality products featuring modern articulation and tons of accessories!
Our first offering is inspired by The Kingdom Comic book featuring the AWOTK from the first story arc.
THE FIGURES – Series one features the main protagonist, Pale, and his Spectral Variant as well as 4 army builder characters to fill out the ranks of your ape armies! Each figure features 18 points of articulation as well as weapons and accessories.
ADVENTURE ARMOR PALE -The young albino ape king sports his trademark Mohawk and red armor while wielding the ability to absorb his fallen enemies powers; however this gift comes at a great cost as their ghosts become attached to him and slowly drive him mad!
CHUNARIAN GUARDSMAN -These heroic soldiers make up the backbone of the Chunarian army and guard the walls of the sanctuary jungle city of Chuh-Nar from enemies of every kind.
CHUNARIAN ARCHER – Skilled marksmen keep a sharp eye out for possible threats to the city from high atop the protective outer walls.
HORRID SOLDIER – Feral Mandrill soldiers meant to overwhelm and decimate rival armies; what they lack in fighting skill they make up for with sheer numbers and unhinged savagery!
HORRID MARKSMAN – Only slightly less vile than the mandrills these chimps are deadly with a bow but can wield a blade when in a bind. These apes rain hate down on opposing armies as city gates give way to the push of the horrid!
SPECTRAL PALE (VARIANT FIGURE) – One of Pale’s powers allows him to phase into a specter-like form allowing him to sneak past imposing opponents or an overwhelming number of troops.
The figures are 1:18 scale figures similar to G.I. Joe, H.A.C.K.s, Star Wars, Marauders Task Force and Marvel Universe figures. The figures are sculpted and colored in the cartoon style of the comic book source material and have great crossover play potential for lines like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
The figures feature 18 points of articulation: Ball-hinged Neck, ball hinged shoulders, ball hinged elbows, ball hinged wrist, swivel-hinged torso, ball & socket hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, and ball-hinged ankles.
That’s not all, they also have details on Weapons Sets, a graphic novel, Stretch Goals and more. Be sure to check them out. They’ve even launched a commercial, which you can see along with a ton of new pictures, after the jump.
