The Boss Fight Studio Backerkit has unlocked their first Stretch Goal!

If you backed their Kickstarter Campaign, then you can now add Kawiki and the Elven Tack Kit to your Backerkit Survey.

That’s not all though, all throughout the BackerKit, you can add more items to your pledge, and help unlock more BackerKit Stretch Goals! The next unlock comes at $240,000 and unlocks the Knight of Asperity Tack and Knight of Asperity Jousting Set.

From Boss Fight Studio:


Kawiki!
Posted by Boss Fight Studio (Creator)

As of late this evening, we have surpassed the $210,000 mark!

Yes, that means that we have unlocked Kawiki and the Elven Tack for him!!

I know we’re actually a few hours behind, but updating the new items to the Backer Kit is a fairly involved process.

Everyone should now be able choose Kawiki and the Elven Tack kit for their steed and Tack on their pledge levels if they have those options.

You can also add both items onto your purchases.

Because the process for adding new items is involved, that means we *maybe* made mistakes. I know, I know, we’re pretty perfect, but sometimes it happens.

If you notice an issue when trying to add either of these items, please let us know so that we can fix it ASAP!

Thanks again for all of your support, Bossfighters!!!

JLW515 Customs Breaker

JLW515 Customs stopped by to show us another awesome custom in his G.I. Joe Revisited series for us to see on our forums.

This one is everybody’s favorite Radio Operator, Breaker.

The base of this figure is the green Dollar General Shipwreck. I love this figure as an army builder. I wanted him to have short sleeves, but the upper Shipwreck arms look odd if you just put bare arms with them. So, I took a Duke figure that is cast in a light green and Dremeled the rolled sleeve cuffs to fit the bottom of Shipwreck’s upper arms. The bare arms and gloves are from POC Jungle Duke (I think). The head is from Bench Press.

The main thing for me was to incorporate the vintage ARAH head set with this custom.

So, I glued a ARAH Breaker head set to a DG Duke helmet. I used a SW Endor Trooper backpack because I like the way it looks with the small antennae and such. I drilled a hole in the side and glued the small phone handset from Lowlight. Also added another black ammo pocket to the right leg.

I really need to take some “action photos” of my figures.

Comments and critiques appreciated.

Jason
