Marauder Task Force 118th K9 Dog, Exo Suit and Contract-Ops Kickstarter Update

Hey Taskers! An update has been received from our friends at Marauder Gun Runners. It pertains to the Marauder GR Weapon Set Series #8 1:18 Scale Gear. Here’s the scoop – 

For those of you getting any of the Marauder “Gun-Runners” Series #8 weapons, the production items are finally on their way to us. We made several last minute paint deco changes and that cost us a few weeks in the production process. Once the shipment arrives, we must organize & sort all the items, pack over 700 orders and then ship out the packages. It isn’t a quick process, but we are working to have ALL the gun orders shipped by the middle to end of February.

We are happy to report the major items in the Kickstarter event are still on schedule. We will post images of samples off the production tools as soon as we receive them.

We’ll bring you more details as they’re received. We’re talking all about the latest update after the break on the Cobra Island forums!

Cryptid Toys Super Articulated Action Figure Blanks Kickstarter Campaign Update

Our friends from Cryptid Toys have shared a new update regarding their Super Articulated Action Figure blanks Kickstarter Campaign. Here’s the scoop – 

Not to worry, things are still moving along smoothly, just taking a bit more time than expected.  The BackerKit survey did not go out yet and will still need a couple more days until it’s sent out to everyone. There’s a ton of options and pledge levels to get sorted out in the survey, and we are trying to make it as easy as possible for everyone to complete it since each pledge level in this campaign was a ‘pick & choose’ format.  

Also, earlier in the campaign when asked if backers who supported this Kickstarter would get a bonus, the answer was yes.  Each backer will be receiving a set of 8 clear figure stands for FREE with their shipped order.  Additional stands may be added during the BackerKit period if you choose. 

How awesome is that?! Each backer will receive a set of 8 clear figure stands for FREE! We’ve mirrored an image of the stands that you can check out by reading more below. Join us after the break for discussion already in progress on the Cobra Island Forums!

Tom Scioli’s Acclaimed Transformers vs. G.I. Joe Series Gets Deluxe Package

Tom Scioli has shared an awesome bit of news on his Facebook Page – Mr. Scioli’s acclaimeed Transformers vs. G.I.Joe series is getting a deluxe package! The info was originally posted on IDW Publishing‘s website. Here’s the scoop – 

The fan-favorite mashup of toy box essentials, Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS and G.I. JOE were given a unique, critically acclaimed comic book series published by IDW that took readers by surprise. In a series unlike anything that had come before it, Tom Scioli’s unique storytelling brought the elaborate settings and battles of childhood imaginations to the comic page. Now, at last, the complete series is available in a deluxe hardcover collection; Transformers vs. G.I. Joe: The Quintessential Collection.

Heavily influenced by the “king of comics,” Jack Kirby, Scoili’s sense of design and aesthetic along with Transformers veteran co-writer John Barber won over critics and fans alike; with CBR calling it “Truly unlike anything else on stands right now, Barber and Scioli have made Transformers vs. G.I. Joe one of the most fascinating books on shelves today.”

Collecting all 13 issues of the maxi-series along with the debut #0 issue appearing on Free Comic Book Day 2015, plus the bonkers Transformers vs. G.I. Joe The Movie Adaptation, this hardcover collection has it all. Back matter includes page-by-page commentary by Scoili and Barber for each issue, along with a complete cover gallery!

“It’s the hardest I’ve ever worked,” says Scioli. “There’s blood on those pages. I gave everything I had to give. Go from T.H.E. P.I.T. to Cybertron and back again. Read the comic that inspired the movie! I’m already nostalgic for it and you will be, too!”

Transformers vs. G.I. Joe: The Quintessential Collection is available now using ISBN: 978-1631408601. Will you be adding it to your collection? Sound off on the Cobra Island Forums
