Eagle Force Action Figures Return to Action
September 15, 2016

 Los Angeles, CA. (September 1, 2016)  – Eagle Force returns to the hands of fans and collectors as highly articulated 4” modern military action figures.

Originally debuting in 1982, Eagle Force was a line of 3″ die-cast metal action figures, created and designed by Bill Baron and Paul Kirchner. Only the initial assortment made it to toy shelves, but it introduced us to Captain Eagle and his team of Eagle Force operatives: Sgt. Brown, Big Bro, Harley, Turk and The Cat. Their enemies were the evil forces of R.I.O.T. (Roving International Organization of Tyranny), led by the General Mamba, aided and abetted by Baron Von Chill, Beta Man the Arsonist, Nemesis the Saboteur, Savitar the Ninja, and an army of R.I.O.T. Shock Troopers.

The new reinvigorated Eagle Force Returns toy line, brought to you by Fresh Monkey Fiction and Remco Toys, brings Captain Eagle out of retirement–and back into active duty–at the urging of his old teammate General Brown. Together, they recruit the next generation of Eagle Force to combat the re-emerging forces of R.I.O.T..

 

“We are super excited to bring back Eagle Force,” Bill Murphy of Fresh Monkey Fiction says. “These modern military 4” action figures will bring back the sense of realism, action and fun that has been missing from toy shelves for the last few years.”

 

The Eagle Force Returns Action Figure Kickstarter is currently live on Kickstarter and has already reached 70% of it’s funding goal of $150,000. The goal of the campaign is to produce 25 unique action figures as well as limited edition playsets and vehicles. Added incentives include special items from Eagle Force designer Paul Kirchner, as well as Eagle Force trading cards.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    As a fan and collector of GIJoe since I was a kid, I backed this Kickstarter. I remember the old diecast figures from back in the day and they looked like they were the precursor to the MASK figures. I’m glad they are doing these in the Joe / Star Wars scale.

  • Clutch says:

    I’m backing it. This line was a heavy influence on G.I. Joe. As such, I’ve always hoped for a revival.
