Eagle Force: The Cat in Seize the Castle Kickstarter Project Update

Chris Irving from The Drawn Word has shared a new update on his latest Eagle Force Novela, The Cat in Seize the Castle! The update comes to us via Kickstarter, but we’ve mirrored the details below. Check it out – 

Hi, all!

The book is at the printer, after a few hiccups in the proofing stage. Among those, is that I needed to come up with a new cover image. 

 It has a Mr. Lucky look, which I’m digging. The entirety of the book, with the MEGA story, comes up to 80 pages. I hope to get them in the next two weeks. I’ll also be grading final papers, at the tail end of this busy, busy semester, and I hope to juggle them promptly!

Also, the metal cards for Eagle Force Legends #2 FINALLY made it in! I can’t apologize enough to those of you who ordered it: I was at the mercy of the metal card vendor’s clogged-up production queue (they’re a small shop who had a HUGE order to fill). Those go out by Monday!!!!

I’m taking the time in which Fresh Monkey will retool the action figures to think of new ways to do the Eagle Force goodies. Stay tuned for that.

That’s all!

Best, Chris

There you have it! Looks like a whole bunch of awesome will be on its way soon! Are you  excited to add Seize the Castle to your bookshelf? Join us for ongoing discussion on the Cobra Island Forums

Fresh Monkey Fiction Larry Hama Kickstarter Campaign Update – Scale Adjustment

Our friend Bill from Fresh Monkey Fiction sent out word via Kickstarter that the Larry Hama action figure will be delayed, as it will receive the same treatment as the upcoming Eagle Force Returns action figures and get a scale adjustment. I know I speak for many when I say that although delays are never fun, quality product is the goal; So in that respect, a delay is no worries at all. Here’s the scoop from the update:

Hey everyone

Designer Con was last weekend and we got to show the tooling for the Larry Hama figure as well as the proposed card art. We got some great feedback on the Larry figure and the Eagle Force Returns line. We have made the conclusion that the Larry figure is smaller than most fans would like, as you can see from this image. FYI Larry will not come with a holster.

So we have decided to redo the tooling in order to increase the size. The downside of this is that we will have to delay the shipping of the figure until the summer. We did not come to this decision lightly but feel this will make the figure better in the long run. We hope everyone understands and is willing to wait in order to make the figure better. 

Thanks again for the support everyone.

Bill

Sounds like this Summer is going to be chock full of awesome figures coming our way, so keep it locked on the Cobra Island Forums for more details as they’re released!
