Although you’re familiar with most of what was shown at the OriToy display, there were 2 new pieces that you’ll definitely want to check out!

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!
