Marauder Task Force WWII Kickstarter Campaign Update – New Bonus Items and Unlocks

With only 30 hours left to go, the Marauder Task Force WII Kickstarter Campaign by our friends at Marauder Gun-Runners is showing no signs of slowing down! As reported to you yesterday via our Social Media outlets, a new Bonus Item has been added to the event, the German Panzer Grenadier in Late War Uniform! 

  • 1 (ONE) figure will be added for FREE to the “All-In” level backer reward packages and 2 (TWO) figures will be added for FREE to the “Mayhem” level backer reward packages. All other pledge levels can add the figure to their reward packages for an additional fee ($25 US and $27 International) The ONLY difference between the German Panzer Grenadier bonus item and any other bonus/stretch goal item is it is NOT eligible to be selected as one of the “you choose” items at ANY level. Either it is FREE in the “All-In” and “Mayhem” packages or can be added to a reward package for a separate fee.

The campaign has also hit its next stretch goal, the WWII Weapon set 1! Included in the set are: 

  • M1 Garand Rifle, M1 Carbine Rifle, Kar98k Rifle, MP44 Rifle, MG42 Machine Gun, 50 cal Machine Gun with Tripod, Bazooka with Rocket, BAR Rifle, Thompson Machine Gun, 45 Automatic Pistol , Nambu Pistol, Luger Pistol, T99 machine gun and Arisaka rifle with Bayonet

There’s a bit of news to share with you on the Marauder Task Force WWII Kickstarter Campaign front, so let’s get to it! 

Marauder John & the team have moved up the highly requested new figure designs in the stretch goal order. They wanted to make them easier to unlock.  They’ll still look at still offering the “solid” color figures to those that want them after the event (if the tools for them are unlocked). The solid Green soldier is still stretch goal #12. 

Also, to help stir up participation in the event, check out the newly added “612 Backer Level” and “714 Backer Level” Stretch Goals to the event (both have ALL NEW headsculpts): 

  • 612 Backer Bonus – Marauder Task Force WWII Japanese American U.S. Army Rifleman (Europe)
  • 714 Backer Bonus – Marauder Task Force WWII Native American U.S. Marine Radio Operator 

But that’s not the only news to share! The U.S. Marine in Camo Uniform is UNLOCKED and now in the event! There’s a lot more in store for this final week of the campaign, so make sure to spread the word and let’s see how far this event can go! You can join in on the conversation already in progress after the break on the Cobra Island Forums!

Marauder Task Force WWII Kickstarter Campaign Update

There’s a bit of news to share with you on the Marauder Task Force WWII Kickstarter Campaign front, so let’s get to it! 

First and foremost, it was discovered that there was a slew of fraudulent pledges made against the campaign that falsely inflated the total contribution level. After the fake pledges were removed, the campaign took quite a hit. You may wonder “So, what about the stretch goals that were unlocked?” Well, Marauder John being the class act that he is, has noted the following: 

Yes, there has been an adjustment to the pledge contribution total.  The majority of the fake pledges have been canceled. ALL stretch goals that were unlocked do to the coordinated attempt to sabotage our event are STILL UNLOCKED!  Regardless what some dishonest people tried to do to our project, we are still covering any stretch goals that were unlocked due to their poor behavior. So the MG42 Gunner and the 50 Cal Gunner are UNLOCKED and IN the event.   Sad to see anyone behave in such a way, but we will NOT let anything they try to do HURT our supporters! 

The middle of any Kickstarter campaign is the “slow” time and we are still on track for a very interesting finish!  We have some cool surprises in store!

Thanks again for your support!

 The campaign is now sitting at just above $152K, marching towards a new stretch goal, the U.S. Marine in Camo Uniform! Let’s help our friends at Marauder Gun-Runners and our fellow Taskers unlock the next one! Have you pledged yet? Let us know and join in on the discussion on the Cobra Island Forums!
