Here’s the Ghosts of the Battlefield story, from the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. kickstarter campaign:
These two warriors both swore an oath to the gods to kill the other, but perished before they could do so. Now they haunt the battlefields, locked in an eternal war until one side admits defeat. Spartans and Gorgons alike fear angering the gods and ending up a soldier in the unending war between these two undead rivals.
The Marauder Task Force Valkyries project is proceeding smoothly and all is still on schedule. Here are images of the MTF Valkyries Spec-Ops paint master prototype. The design and colors are in-line with the Spec-Ops male MTF version. Once again, Kevin Watts did an OUTSTANDING job on the figure!
We will post several MORE images (more paint masters, tooling prototypes and pre-production samples) of the Valkyries and new Male figures over the next few weeks. Thanks again for your support and just wait until you see what is in store!
Boss Fight Studio announced this morning that they shipped the first batch of Vitruvian HACKS!
“The first transport is away!”
This first shipment is for the folks who backed the Vitruvian HACKS Kickstarter campaign. The figures for those who missed the campaign will ship at a later date. So be sure to check your emails for notifications because TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL!
UPDATE: Boss Fight Studio provided more info and photos!
The first shipment is on its way from Shenzhen, China to BFS HQ in Massachusetts! This shipment contains Spartan, Stone Spartan, Medusa, Coral Gorgon, Black Racer, Talos, Gray Male Blank, and Fire Orange Male Blank. Production will finish on the remaining items after Chinese New Year and we’ll keep you updated on the progress. In the meantime, please enjoy these photos of V-HACKS getting packed and shipped!
The remaining Orange Hazard Ops, Brown Terra Ops, Yellow Shock Ops, Gray Tech Ops and Yellow/Green Strike Ops figures and accessories are NOW live on www.marauderinc.com We received several questions about when the new deco figures and new colored gear would be available…so wanted to let you all know!
The folks at The Fwoosh sent an update for their Articulated Icons Kickstarter campaign!
Happy New Year, New Pictures and Pre-Orders Are Now Open!
Posted by Fwoosh LLC
Happy New Year, Devotees!
As promised in our last communication, we are back after the turn to 2016 with a brief update on production and an exciting announcement!
First and foremost, everything is now in China. What we mean is, the prototypes that were not completed prior to the launch of the Kickstarter campaign were finished early last month, and are now in the Far East with their Iconic brethren. The factory is doing their thing, and the technical side of production has commenced — that is good news! However, there is not really much to speak of past that at the moment. We do not have anything new to show in terms of production status as we are not that far along yet.
We DID take pictures of these new prototype prior to sending them off to the factory, so here is a look at the final paint masters for the Smokey Ninja, Solitaire, and the Temple Guardian:
Please sit tight and be patient with us, we PROMISE we will start showing things as soon as there is something to show, but for now, this will be it for awhile. This is what can be called, in very non-eloquent terms, “pre-pre-production.” Essentially, a lot of careful planning is taking place, but nothing in the order of production samples is being produced yet. The factory is making important preparations, but it might still be a while until we have something physically new to show you.
However, we will keep you up to date on our production cycle and timing as soon as we have a better estimate. Please remember the that Lunar New Year holidays will be beginning soon, so most production movement will stop for a few weeks.
For now, we DO have some good news, though! Are you ready?
Articulated Icons: The Feudal Series is now available for PRE-ORDER! What that means is if you missed out on our Kickstarter campaign, or if you have decided you want to bolster your ranks even more, now you can!
All of our figures (save for the KS-exclusive Smokey Grey Ninja), can now be ordered through our store page, located HERE.
If you are a backer or have been monitoring the Kickstarter campaign, you will notice that while this pre-order will be a part of our FIRST production run, these will be shipping AFTER all Kickstarter orders are fulfilled and shipped. Please note that this is NOT subject to change, so there will likely be a difference of a few of weeks between the end of the KS shipping and the start of the pre-order shipping. We will, of course, have better information about that as we get closer to fulfillment.
So, if you missed out on the Kickstarter, now is the time to order the Feudal Series! We will keep pre-orders open for as long as we can into the production cycle, but we advise that you do not delay in placing an order — we will not have a lot of lead time to announce when pre-orders will end, so it might be abrupt to stay with the production timeline. Don’t miss out again!
Here are a few specific details about the pre-order structure and process:
All pre-orders will be charged within 24 hours of the order being placed
The base shipping fee for US is $10, everywhere else is $30. Individual figures shipping prices are listed with the figure and are added to the base shipping fee
Pre-orders will be closed for each figure as they are sold out for our initial run (we will be holding some stock for conventions, etc.)
If you are an existing Kickstarter backer and want to buy more, you can do so but it will be at the new pricing structure
So, we hope you had great holidays and are ready to build up your armies! We will be back with more regular updates now that we are in the new year, so look for more soon! Thanks for your continued support!
Boss Fight Studio provided more details, regarding their upcoming Con Exclusive Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures!
Hey Boss Fighters!!
Con season is right around the corner and that means we will have some great opportunities to get out there and meet some new friends and get the word out about BFS and Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S.
Our first con of 2016 is New Jersey Collector Con in Cherry Hill, NJ on April 3rd. We’ll be there to answer questions, do sketches, and talk toys.
Most importantly, we’ll be selling our first line of product! So if you missed our Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Kickstarter or Pre-Sales then you’ll have to come see us and get your collection started!
NJCC, of course, has the first Con Branded Exclusive with their Ultimate Spartan only available at the Con.
WHAT?! Toys for sale, Con Exclusives, and cool company?!
But wait, There’s more!! NJCC will be the first time our 2016 con exclusive Eternal Struggle two-pack will be available to the public.
If you can’t make it to NJCC, the Eternal Struggle two-pack will also be available on Bossfightshop.com on April 3rd only.
So we hope to see you in NJ and stay tuned for more 2016 con announcements!
Hey Boss Fighters!!
Last week we announced our first con of the season being NJCC on April 3rd. Well, here’s our next big con-season announcement.
Boss Fight Studio will be setting up at MEGACON in Orlando, FL May 26-29!!
This is our first time at Mega Con and our first sojourn down to the Sunshine State, so hopefully we’ll see a lot of new faces and some familiar ones, as well. We’re super excited to be making the trip down there and spreading our influence to more unsuspecting collectors. We’ll be doing sketches, talking toys, selling figures, and gossiping about the ancient Greeks…You know the ones!!
We’ll be selling our 2016 Convention Exclusive Eternal Struggle 2-pack at the con as well as on our website that weekend.
So, mark your calendars and hold your breath because we may have a few surprises in store for those of you that can make it to our booth.
The response to the first Kickstarter shipments has been overwhelming! We are delighted you like the items! We have received some questions about weapons and the orange Hazard Ops figure.
Weapons: ONLY backers at the Valhalla level received weapons & IDS stands for each figure ordered. Asgard backers received an IDS stand for each figure ordered. The other levels did not receive weapons or stands.
Orange Hazard Ops figure: There have been some questions about the head on the Orange Hazard-Ops figure. In the illustration on the Kickstarter project, the orange head with goggle & breather was shown. Unfortunately the orange goggle/breather heads did not arrive until this week. Rather than delay shipping all the Kickstarter orders by an additional 3 weeks, we made the decision to ship the orange figure with the orange balaclava head. In the Kickstarter, the Orange Hazard Ops image is labeled as “final product and colors may vary”…just in case there are last minute unforeseen issues. That being said, we will be delighted to add the orange goggle/breather heads for any Hazard-Ops figure ordered to your next regular Marauder GR website order. Just put a note in the message section of the order with the number of orange goggle/breather heads wanted.
The Marauder “Gun-Runners” sent the latest update, regarding their Marauder Task Force wave 1 repaints! All of the backers’ packages are shipped and should be in hand within the next few days, and the Marauder Task Force wave 1 repaints will be going up for sale on the Marauder, Inc. storefront!
But wait! It gets better! They’re also going to be restocking the solid green, black, and tan figures from the first wave of Marauder Task Force figures tonight!
First shipments with the NEW Male Marauder Task Force figures are on the way!
Posted by Marauder GR
Hey “814 Valtaskers!”
We are pleased to announce that ALL orders with the new Marauder Task Force MALE figures have shipped! Most of you have received your orders or will receive them Monday (1/4) or Tuesday (1/5). Even though the international orders shipped FIRST, those orders still take longer to arrive than domestic US orders. The 2nd part of the Kickstarter orders will ship next summer when the new sculpt female MTF Valkyries & Steady Cam Gunner are ready (if you only ordered new Val items, you will get only 1 (ONE) shipment next summer).
The left over new male figures (Hazard Ops, Terra Ops, Tech Ops, Shock Ops and Strike Ops) will go live on the site Tuesday or Wednesday night. We want as many of our Kickstarter supporters as possible to get their packages with those figures BEFORE we offer them to everyone else. There are not many of them left for the site, but we do have a restock on the way for the end of this month.
For those interested, the LONG out of stock solid green Field Ops, the black Night Ops, the tan Camo Desert Ops figures and the NEW heads with facial hair will be “live” on the www.marauderinc.com website around 9pm EST Saturday night (1/2).
Thank you again for your support and we really hope you like the items!
Will this be a vehicle driver, or will it be released as a single? Will you troop build it? Head on over to the Acid Rain World discussion to let us know!
I know I wouldn’t mind if our armored friend was a single figure, since I’d like a few of them, and it doesn’t hurt that it’ll probably be released in the new crate-style packaging that Kit’s been designing!
