Welcome to the site Fresh Monkey. I really like what you are doing. Eagle force was never my thing, but I'm tempted by the playset, & some of the troop builders.
Hope you get all your funding goals.
First off, I want to state that I'm not a backer, although I've been watching closely. I'm really glad you guys met the minimum goal to move the project forward. Projects like this definitely have a place in the collecting space, and I hope that more of them find their audience.
While I really like the figure designs, there are a few things holding me back. When it comes to military figures, I'm looking for one of two things: heavy realism or heavy nostalgia. The figures are faithful-to/heavily-inspired-by the original EF line, and that's great, but it keeps them from being particularly real-world accurate. And while I owned an EF toy or two as a kid, there isn't anything close to the nostalgic pull of GIJoe (military) or other major toys of the 80's (Transformers, Star Wars, MOTU, etc). I'm just missing a real connection to the property.
Call me cheap, but I can't pay ~$20 for 4" figures that are cool but that I have little connection to. If these were at retail for sub-$10, I'd probably pick up several for my collection, see if my kids liked them, etc. But for the price of a 6" Marvel Legends with a BAF part, I just can't justify it. I know some think it's unfair to compare a mass market product to a niche specialty line, but that's the legit competition (at least to some of us) for our spare collecting dollars... along with 3P $Transformer$, Lego/Megabloks, and other drains on disposable income.
Regardless, I love seeing projects like this succeed, even if they aren't all up my alley, and I hope that it continues to meet stretch goals and that Fresh Monkey has other lines coming in the future. If so, I suspect one or more of them will push the right buttons for me. Best of luck!
I'm "All In" and then some on this one. So many great uses for the army builders in this lot. The Bull Dog troopers have one of the best woodland cameo schemes I've seen in this scale. The Riot Commandos have a heavy NOD vibe to them. I'll be getting the Urban troops as well, another great camo pattern. The gold and black troops which at first were a pass for me, until I realized they work perfect for a Team-X squad in the Marvel universe. If the fire bugs were available in a green and yellow paint scheme I'd get any army lot of them as well. I've also started to pick up some CORPS, PTE, and a few other odd lower priced vehicles to create an Eagle Force motor pool.
