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!
