Here is the 1st Eagle Force Returns concept image…Stryker Jr. He is the one of a few original characters that will be joining the Eagle Force Returns line up when we kick off the Kickstarter later this summer. We’ll be posting more concept images of other characters soon, but we posted this image because we wanted to highlight the fact that we’ll be sharing parts and accessories with ZICA Toys “The New Adventure People” Kickstarter which has just relaunched. If that Kickstarter funds, we’ll be able to offer cool figures like this right off the bat and not have to do them as stretch goals. We hope this image gives you an idea of the “bigger picture” for the toy lines that Fresh Monkey Fiction and ZICA Toys are co-developing. If you haven’t already please check out “The New Adventure People” Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1728265268/the-new-adventure-people-0
If the funding goal reaches $30,000 our next army builder figure will be unlocked, the Strike Force Trooper! We’ll be offering it as a single figure for $20.00 (plus S&H), and in an army builder set of 7 figures for $100.00 (plus S&H). Assuming the stretch goal is met, the figure will be available for purchase via the Backerkit surveys that will be sent out after the Kickstarter ends.
The folks at Zica Toys had to cancel their previous Adventure People Kickstarter campaign because they switched factories!
However they launched a new campaign this week! But there’s more! They also included a new figure, Captain Evil’s Henchman!
Unfortunately if you already pledged to the original campaign, your pledge was cancelled so you’ll have to make a new pledge. On the bright side, the new factory was able to offer their services at a lower price so the price per figure is much cheaper!
ZICA Toys is very excited to announce the official return of Adventure People! Launching via Kickstarter in January of 2016, the first assortment will consist of Captain Action, Captain Evil, Action Jackson, and Jet Jungle. Each figure will come with a total of 5 interchangeable hand sets which include closed fist, grip, and trigger finger. The grip and trigger finger sets come in two different wrist articulation types, one set has it on the X axis and one has it on the Y axis.
We’re also excited to be bringing back the REMCO brand name with the launch of the Adventure People line. When the Kickstarter goes live we hope we can can count on your support to help add this double dose of retro goodness to your collection.
Then there’s some test shots of figures from Zica Toys’ upcoming Kickstarter campaign.
Here are the resin casts for 3 of the 5 figures that will be included in the Kickstarter. The remaining 2 figures will be revealed when the Kickstarter goes live, which will hopefully be soon. The next step is to have painted samples made. Almost there!

There’s a lot of great information about their various figures and comics, and the following information will be of interest to collectors of 4″ action figures!
AFF: Zica Toys has been promoting their 1/18th scale line as shipping in Summer 2015. Are we close to the release and will the first wave see Captain Action and the release of the Silver Streak?
Joe Ahearn: One of the coolest things about working with the team from ZICA is the Silver Streak they are developing for the line. As you probably know, the Silver Streak was Captain Action’s version of the Batmobile. It was an imaginative collectible and is still very sought after by vintage collectors. One thing that always bothered us, however, is that the Silver Streak looked long and sleek in the packaging illustrations, but the actual toy vehicle was a bit stubbier. We’ve worked with the gang from Zica to rectify this, and the new Silver Streak will more accurately reflect the idealized version from the packaging. (No pun intended.) And as its sculpted digitally, we’re plotting behind the scenes to figure out the best way to create a 1/6th scale version of it somewhere down the road.
We’re also planning additional characters for this line, including Dr. Evil and Lady Action. The Lady Action will be highly anticipated, we feel, because we’re designing an alternate outfit for her as part of this line.
