Eagle Force HQ – SITREP on Eagle Force

The latest Eagle Force HQ update was shared shared today by our friends at The Drawn Word. We’ve mirrored the update for you below, so check it out then join us on the CobraIsland.com Forums for discussion already in progress! 

Here’s where we go from here…

A ton has been going on with Eagle Force lately. For those of you following, Bill at Fresh Monkey Fiction made the call to retool the Eagle Force Returns figures. This will add a few more months to the final delivery while the final figures are perfected, and I’m going to use the extra time to focus on more Cat stories, and extra Eagle Force goodies:

  • Eagle Force Legends: Those of you who ordered the second pack (Redwing) back in September, I finally got those out last week. The hang-up was that my metal card vendor was delayed more than usual. I had a Legends idea that will reward you, the die-hards. Every month, I’ll do a digital pack of Legends cards, which will have about three of the classic Eagle Forcers (or R.I.O.T.ers!). With enough designed and under our belt, we can then look to printing a limited edition pack. Also, I have about half a dozen of Pack #2, which has Redwing, the Blackbird design preview, and the Tannis Rand metal card. Email me if you want dibs on one! I’m selling them for $20, which includes shipping.
  • The Cat: Seize the Castle should go out to backers by mid-December! After I get through the semester here, I plan on starting the third Cat novella, Face the Night.
  • Eagle Force MEGA is still alive and well. I still hope to get that original card set done, and am waiting to time them for sometime next summer
  • Finally, I have a trading card checklist, designed at trading card size, and good for printing!

P.S.: I also reduced some of my earlier trading card sets for quick sale over the holidays. I also have a deal to send out loose cards. Check it out!

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

Eagle Force Returns Kickstarter Campaign Update – Retooling is a GO!

Our friends from Fresh Monkey Fiction shared word via Kickstarter that retooling of the Eagle Force Returns Action Figure line will begin. With that said, that will cause a bit of a delay in receiving our new toys, but hey, you can’t rush perfection! Here’s the scoop from the Campaign, where Bill provided a Q&A to questions received. The list is long, so make sure to read more below to check it out.   

I for one am thankful that Bill is going this route, as a delay is a small price to pay to ensure that we enjoy quality figures when the time comes. What are your thoughts on the subject? Share them with us on the Cobra Island Forums

Eagle Force Returns Kickstarter Update

Heads Up! For those of you that contributed to the Eagle Force Returns Kickstarter Campaign, there’s an important update that requires your attention. Our friends from Fresh Monkey Fiction have shared word on a possible delay in shipping out our figures. That said though, the reason for the delay is a positive one. Here’s the scoop: 

As some of you know Zica/Remco toys, who is partnering with FMF on Eagle Force, canceled their Adventure People line. As FMF is sharing this tooling for Eagle Force, Craig at Zica/Remco was kind enough not to go into specific details with his messaging. So naturally folks are asking “Why did he cancel?” Well, as FMF feels that transparency is key with Kickstarter, they felt that they should let you know. It was primarily about scale. Although still very much 1/18th, the Eagle Force figures are a bit shorter than other popular figures in the market, as you can see by this image.

 

There were also a few minor imperfections in the tooling, like the shoulders are a tad rounded and after many months the ankle ball never really looked the way we intended. Craig was not willing to compromise on these points, so he decided to cancel the Adventure People and offer refunds out of his own pocket. FMF was willing to go with the current scale and deal with these minor issues in order to stay on target for our original delivery in late March.

After a long discussion with Craig and getting some feedback at Designer Con from fans, we decided this is not really up to them. It’s up to YOU…the community that came together to bring Eagle Force back to life.

Fresh Monkey Fiction has the opportunity to redo the tooling, fix the scale and adjust some minor issues, but this will push Eagle Force Returns 3-4 months behind schedule and won’t delivered till summer 2018. It’s important to keep in mind that this tooling will be used in future lines as well, see above, so it does have a broad and lasting impact. If they do retool, Craig is considering reversing his thinking and moving ahead with Captain Action, so there is that as well. FMF would prefer to redo the tooling and adjust the scale, but they wanted to get as much feedback as they could so we can make the best informed decision.

Like all Kickstarters, this is process, so they hope everyone understands that although they’re not Hasbro or Mattel, Fresh Monkey Fiction is committed to making the best toys possible. They’ll be posting this on Facebook but please share your comments in the Kickstarter Comments area, as this is really a question for the backers.

Thanks everyone!
