The Marauder “Gun-Runners” released a new update for their Kickstarter backers, which included a look at the paint masters for the new female head sculpts for the Valkyries!
Hey 814 Valtaskers!
Since our last update, we have been working non-stop on the Vals project. Lots of “surprise” tooling issues encountered and solved. We hope to have items OFF the actual production tools to show you all soon. We are still on target to hit the planned release date this summer. In addition to the accessories shown in the MTF Valkyries Kickstarter project, there are several ADDITIONAL NEW accessories that are part of the release (we will reveal those items to you all FIRST).
The 9 different female headscuplts with hair turned out great. Below are the paint masters sent to the factory for production. Caucasian heads will be available in brown, blonde, black, light brown, red and white hair. Hispanic heads available in black and brown hair. The female t-shirt torso will be available in 10 different colors (and 3 different skin tones).
We will keep you posted as the pre-production samples arrive. Thanks again for your support!
While these won’t be available until the summer, you can still check out other awesome Marauder Task Force figures and accessories at www.marauderinc.com!
The [url=https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1732159183/marauder-task-force-valkyries-1-18-scale-female-fi]Marauder Task Force Valkyries Kickstarter[/url] marches on, with a new stretch goal being unlocked and new full color images of upcoming Valkyries being shared on the [url=https://www.facebook.com/pages/Marauder-Gun-Runners/130280310343512?fref=ts]Marauder Inc. Facebook Page[/url].
The color versions of the Desert-Ops, Urban-Ops and Night-Ops Valkyries 3d illustrations have been attached to this story and can be viewed after the jump. These color renderings better capture the design and appearance of the figures. The second “Bonus” stretch goal is unlocked, so Contributors at the Aesir level or higher can add the Gray Tech-Ops action figure to their rewards for $18 per figure. Folkvangr and Valhalla level contributors already get 1 (one) Gray Tech-Ops figure added to their rewards and can also order additional Intel-Ops figures for $18 per figure.
Join us after the break to get in on the ongoing Marauder Task Force Valkyries discussion!
Not ready to settle and be laid back after successfully funding Valkyries after 2 days and already hitting their 1st stretch goal with the Valkyrie Pilot, Marauders “Gun Runners” has added more stretch goals!
And guess what?! They are early tiers! So you don’t have to wait for the finally hours and post the 294k smackaroos to get these!
The stretch goals include 4 male MTF figures decked out in new highly requested color combos on the BossFight sculpts! A few folks have already keyed in on some definite opportunities with these as well **cough**NotHydra**cough**NotCobraCoil**cough**
Have you opened your Task Force army? Have you pledged for your Valkyries? Have you already tried EVERY possible armor combination!? Well don’t fear Marauder “Gun Runners” still have you covered… literally cover with STICKERS! Patches, emblems, logos, insignias .. deck out your troops even farther!
ONE (1) complete sheet of custom die cut stickers. Incredibly detailed stickers are perfect size to use ON 1:18 scale figures and accessories. Die-cut stickers are just “peel and stick”…no water or cutting! Stickers are made out of a VERY thin film to allow for a realistic use on the figures (NOT “big & thick” material like is commonly used). The sheet has a wide variety of sticker styles: Country flags in “bright” and muted colors (US, UK, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Australia), unit patches, Marauder Task Force “Skull/Knife” logos, miniature beret shields, name badges…even “shark teeth” for use on helmets! The MTF sticker sheet allows you to take your detail custom work to a new level! This is our first sticker sheet release and we will be adding MANY more sticker sheet designs to our assortment. Sheet measures 4 inches by 4-1/2 inches.
The wait is Over! Marauders “Gun Runners” and their highly anticipated follow up to their recent Marauder’s Task Force release have hit the ground running. The Kickstarter is up and with some exciting releases on hand! In less then 12 hours the Kickstarter has all ready nearly reached half of it’s initial funding goal. Which mean we should be on to those 16 Stretch goals quick! … Marauder’s knows us well too … saving those awesome red and crimson sets for the end just to lure us all in! Rest assured though, with all the way until September 14th to pledge i’m sure we’re going to see the team have to unleash a few more Stretch goals along the way!
“Thanks to your support, the launch of the original Marauder Task Force 1:18 scale action figure line was a tremendous success! The momentum of the first MTF release spawned requests for more figures, more accessories, and demands for FEMALE Marauder Task Force team members. We are delighted to introduce our female Marauder Task Force team members, the VALKYRIES, or as we fondly refer to them, “Vals.”
Each highly detailed Marauder Task Force VALKYRIES figure is fully articulated, features multi-role customizable design options, is fully factory painted and equipped with a wide variety of interchangeable accessories. As with the male MTF figures, the simple-to-customize figures are designed to work WITH “modular” gear & accessories. Most of the modular accessories from the original MTF figures WILL work with the new Val figures and vice versa. The action figures have a unique design versatility that allows for use in Sci-Fi, Police, Military, and Superhero roles. Basically, whatever scenario is required, the Marauder Task Force VALKYRIES figures can fill the need. The nameless, faceless minions are ideal for army building or to use as “backup” with other currently available action figures.
Each 1:18 scale action figure is approximately 4 inches tall, made from high tech ABS & PVC materials and produced AT a modern factory (NOT “castings” made out of “resin”). The figures feature an amazing level of sculpting detail and realistic authentic designs. For maximum poseability, each figure has a large number of articulation points to allow positioning in virtually any pose required.
“Modular” interchangeable accessories is the key feature to the Marauder GR Valkyrie Action Figure System. To assist the “customizers” in our hobby, the removable headgear & vests have “modular” attachment points which provide the ability to “mix & match” the assorted modular equipment as desired. Also, there are “modular” accessory mounting points ON the actual figure. The figures and accessories will be available in assorted colors.
There are several participation levels in our Kickstarter project. Everything from simple contributions, to single figure level options, to massive 50 figure “Valhalla” sets…all the way to limited “one of a kind” Paint Master prototypes. The higher the participation level, the better the value. To add to the event, there are several “Stretch” goals. If we hit the stretch goals MORE female Val figure styles will be available, NEW male MTF figure designs & body parts will be available to order and FREE bonus items will be added to specific participation levels.
If you’re looking for super detailed, articulated, fully painted, easy to customize 1:18 scale FEMALE action figures with interchangeable accessories…the Marauder Task Force Valkyries action figures are for you!
Have you guys caught your breath yet?! No?! Too Bad!! Cause NJCC had Marauders coming full steam ahead! Marauders Task Force Valkyries have landed! If you missed out on the first Kickstarter and have been scrambling to find and get the figures you want then I’m sure your lesson has been learned. With the overwhelming flood of praise and positivity that Wave 1 has been greated with I have no doubt that Valkyries will have the both having to pump out and come up with last minute stretch goals after the base ones are blown out in the first few weeks!
These look like some of the female bucks and tooling that we have been waiting for for a long time!
Hot off the heels of Marauder Task Force figures invading everybody’s mailbox we are set to begin round 2. Being teased the other month with Valkyries being Wave 2 we are getting some reveals at NJCC and the big announcement that the Official Kickstarter will begin August 3rd …. TOMORROW! Stay tuned for more updates!
