The Amazing Heroes Series 2 Figures by Fresh Monkey Fiction are now live on Kickstarter. Fans who helped fund the first wave can now pledge to help bring this new assortment to life. Here’s the info:
Just like that and thanks to over 300 amazing backers we funded Amazing Heroes Wave 1, our retro superhero action figure line, on Kickstarter back in late 2015. Wave 1 included classic Golden Age characters such as Black Terror, Golden Age Daredevil, Green Turtle and Stardust, along with more modern characters like Captain Action and Mike Allred’s Madman.
It was such a huge success that we’re following it up with Amazing Heroes Series 2.
Series 2 features another great line-up of 10 classic heroes and villains, including figures of Mike Baron and Steve Rude’s Nexus, Mike Grell’s Jon Sable, and a space age version of Mike Allred’s Madman. We’re super excited to offer all these characters, as this will be the 1st time many of them will be available in action figures form!
Each retro-inspired Amazing Heroes figure stands 4.5″ tall and includes our popular interchangeable “Artist Edition” backer cards with art by Jamal Igle (Molly Danger, Supergirl), Simon Fraser (Doctor Who), Khoi Pham (X-Men), Dean Haspiel (The Red Hook), Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts), Will Rosado (G.I .Joe) and Mike Norton (BattlePug).
They are looking for a total of $45,000 to fund this assortment. You can do so by Clicking Here. Read on for images and more info.
