If you have been collecting action figures, busts, or statues, for the last decade or so, chances are that you have a few characters sculpted by Paul Harding. He has worked with all the major companies on a variety of collectibles. Those include Marvel Legends, Star Wars, G.I. Joe, NECA Ultimate Figures, and more. Paul has launched a Kickstarter with his company, Future Cyborg, featuring some excellent looking retro inspired action figure. Ninja: Shadow & Blood is a new Kenner inspired 3.75″ scale Ninja figure line. The figure have 6 points of articulation, and will come with an assortment of weapons and accessories, on retro inspired card backs. There are currently 2 varieties available, with a slew of unlockable Ninja Clans planned as the Kickstarter progresses.
“Hi! I’m Paul Harding from Future Cyborg Figures. I’ve made action figures and statues for the biggest names in the toy business including Toybiz and Hasbro Marvel Legends, DC Direct, NECA Toys, GI Joe, Diamond Select, Gentle Giant, Sideshow, and many more. As a lifelong collector I’ve always looked back to the days of retro figures and wondered why I barely had any ninjas to play with. It seemed like we needed significantly more Kenner style 3.75″ scale ninja figures than what we were offered. Now, as a veteran toy sculptor of nearly two decades, I’ve decided to do something about it. This is a project made for Kenner fans, vintage toy collectors, ninja lovers, and people who’ve always wanted to army-build clans of little retro-styled martial artists. You have the opportunity to take it way back to the heyday of action figures and purchase entire clans of ninja. Army-build your way to total domination!”
The Kickstarter is looking for a total of $45,000. Check out the Ninja: Shadow & Blood Kickstarter Page to back the project. You can see some photos after the jump.
