With just less than 2 weeks left to go, we wanted to share on update on the highly anticipated new Eagle Force Returns Kickstarter. The good news is that they are fully funded! They’ve hit their goal of $150,000 with plenty of time to spare. the even better news? They’re well on their way to hitting their first stretch goal, which kicks in at $160, 000 pledged. If you were holding out, waiting to see if this would be funded before jumping in, then now is the time to do it.
Originally debuting in 1982, Eagle Force was a 3″ die-cast action figure military-themed toy line created and designed by Bill Baron and Paul Kirchner. Even though only the initial assortment made it to toy shelves but it was enough to introduce us to Captain Eagle and his team of top military specialists with codenames such as Sgt. Brown, Big Bro’, Harley, Turk and The Cat. They battled the evil forces of R.I.O.T. (Roving International Organization of Tyranny), lead by the evil General Mamba, assisted by Baron Von Chill, Beta Man the Arsonist, Nemesis the Saboteur, Savitar the Ninja, and an army of R.I.O.T. Shock Troopers.
Fresh Monkey Fiction and Remco Toys are teaming up to bring back Eagle Force. The long retired Captain Eagle is recruited back into active duty by his old teammate General Brown. Together they’re recruiting the next generation of Eagle Force team members to combat the re-emerging forces of R.I.O.T., a terrorist organization driven by revenge and desire for global domination.
These modern military action figures will bring back the sense of realism, action and fun that has been missing from toy shelves for the last few years.
Each Eagle Force figure stands 4” tall (1:18 scale) and has 14 points of articulation. They are intended to blend in perfectly with other figures in the same scale that share similar themes and designs.
