I'm passing along the word for you fellow MUSCLE and Battle Beasts fans..
Last month we were discussing the early teaser image release of this line in the Battle Beasts thread on Hisstank ( a GI JOE forum) and now it looks to be a full blown line!

Rise of the Beasts - Series 1 by Jon Karis — Kickstarter

Image

Update: Exclusive gold armored figure will be provided for pledges at a specific level!

As a fan of M.U.S.C.L.E.S. and Battle Beasts (not to mention owning Masters of The Universe product both vintage and MOTUC) this is everything i love wrapped in one package :D

I'm all over these so i figured some of the old school fans of MUSCLES and Battle Beast would want to know ! I love this hobby!

Are the arms and head articulated at all?

Series 1 will be made of PVC (like M.U.S.C.L.E.s, Battle Beasts, etc.), approximately 60mm tall, available in both painted and non-painted formats, with a weapon and joints at the shoulders--

from the kickstarter site text-- as these kind of things fall into the realm of customs in my mind (even if they are mass produced).


Interesting but Im going to have to pass...I really dont like the design styles-- more human than animal... And honestly (although I cant do any better)-- these only have passing resemblance to the animals he chose- the lion doesnt even have the face of a cat, and the gorilla is more of a "bigfoot". komodo dragons dont have head crests (maybe thats supposed to be generic armor), and the horned toad-- looks more like a generic dragon..

The video said the humanoid body style will have turning heads as well as sholder joints.

I'm definately in to these! I really can't wait to get them!

This has come up a few times...


For those that arent aware Canada isnt considered an international destination with this pledge drive :)

Quote:
Only if you are outside of the US or Canada. Then please add $20 to your total pledge ($65).

An online comic I follow (OOTS) made over a MILLION dollars with their kickstarter. :shock:

The internet is an amazing thing.

That BLEW my MIND :shock: I'm in total agreement regarding the internet.

We're in the home stretch and very close to the goal! If your sitting on the fence you could be the person to make this a reality :)

Wow! We shattered $14,000 level! That means that everyone who has pledged at the $45 level or higher will also receive a free Series 2 figure with their pledge rewards.

Let's shoot for $17,000 next!

If $17,000 goal is achieved , not only will we be able to add in a SECOND Series 2 figure to those at the $45 level or higher, but we will also add in the BONUS Gold Lion to everyone who is at the $30 level.

Let's keep this momentum going!!!! Thank you to EVERYONE that has contributed and those of you who havent yet there is still time to get on board !!!
