Cryptid Toys will be bringing you all a line of highly articulated 6" army builders called Army Alphas. There will be a Kickstarter campaign to launch the line in the coming weeks.

The Army Alphas line will be made up of several figures that are meant to be army built. Among the initial offerings, there will be a few versions of the SWAT, Soldier, and Skeleton figures. Parts are being kept interchangeable with Marvel Legends where possible and the idea is that this line can blend seamlessly with many other 6" figure lines. Each figure will come with various accessories. The SWAT and Soldier figures will come with an alternate head in order to diversify your armies even further. Ninjas are some of the other figures planned to be a stretch goal in the campaign so hopefully those will become a reality as well!

Comments, critiques, and feedback is all appreciated!

Was this Kickstarter ever launched? Looks like something I'd be interested in. Since it seems like we won't be getting a GI Joe Black line. :(

The skeletons have my interest. I'm sure I'd get a few of those if the price is right. The soldiers look nice but I'm not sure how much use I would personally have for them. What type of weapons will you be producing? There is a serious lack of weaponry/accessories available for 1:12 scale so I'm wondering if the accessories will be available separate from the figures.

Not yet. Hoping to have this Kickstarter live sometime later this summer. Head over to the website and enter your email to be put on the email list. You'll get a reminder email right as the campaign goes live.

Aiming for about $20-25 per figure. Each soldier and SWAT figure comes with 4 different accessories. Soldiers have a SCAR-H, M4 Carbine, Beretta M9, and a frag grenade. The SWAT have a Mossberg, HK 416, SigP226, and a smoke grenade. There are a few planned accessory packs as stretch goals that will be tailored to specific figures that will include additional weapons.


Here are some 3D prints of the parts for the Soldier/SWAT and Skeleton figures:

I'm sure you can use the navy SWAT figures for that!

Digitally colored sculpts for the navy SWAT, grey SWAT, bone Skeleton, and Kickstarter exclusive GITD Skeleton.
