Wave 8 (or The CoD/Battlefield Wave):


Sounds like a new Kickstarter towards the end of the month. Male t-shirt torsos and the dogs they mentioned a long while back.

No, unrelated products. Apparently all they could work up in the five months since telling us about the line is that teaser.

They could have showed us that image when they announced. They should have at least had art at this point. At least we have a VSS to look forward to. Even if it doesn't have any of the scopes or sights designated for it. Because fuck doing Russian optics.

Sorry, Eddie. I'm bitter today. :D

I'd be happy if they restocked their store with what they have currently.... really big need for some night ops bodies.. especially if they have the possibility
of having male t shirt torsos coming up... (PLEASE & Thank You)

Don't sweat it, KT. Just thinking out loud.
I preordered one of those Acid Rain Marines, so I don't feel so bad that the gun in Wave 8 isn't a VSS, but a VSK-94. :lmao: Between that and the gladiator kits I at least have something in the scale to look forward to.

Couldn't say. I've been putting off buying those female figures for a long time.
People seem to like their stuff, though.

I like them. Don't know if I really need more gun options. Probably will pass on the dog unless their doing more breeds. I can always tell when German Shepherd sculptors aren't around German shepherds very often.

Are they actually making an RPG? That sounds like something I could actually use in my life. My nerd friends and I have been playing Dungeons & Dragons and recently starting playing the Robotech RPG, so having a military commando table top game might be something cool to do too. IF they follow through with it that is.

big update in case any one here is interested...

Hey Taskers!

LOTS to cover in this update! First off, here are images of the 3d sculpt illustrations for the MTF Exo-Suit:



This is NOT a simple “5 point of articulationâ€￾ design! The Exo Suit can be put into a wide variety of action poses, just like our MTF action figures. We will post images of the ACTUAL Exo Suit Prototype…IN ACTION POSES…in the next few days! Along with LOTS more images of the K9 and Contract Ops. We hope you like it!

NEW Bonus items and Stretch Goals:

When we hit $100,000 pledge level, not only is the “Tech Opsâ€￾ Valkyries figure Stretch Goal unlocked…BUT the amount between EACH remaining UNLOCKED Stretch Goal will be REDUCED to ONLY $8,000, instead of $12,000! In addition, will add the SPECIAL SURPRISE “Agency-Opsâ€￾ MTF figure in Suit to the list of Unlocked Stretch Goals (will post designs when added to the event). If the “Agency Opsâ€￾ Suited figure is unlocked…will add a SPECIAL SURPRISE Valkyries figure stretch goal!

NEW “Arsenalâ€￾ Weapon Set Contribution Level- Set of 20 “Assault Riflesâ€￾ to equip your troops from the new Marauder GR Series #8. 5 Socom Assault Rifles, 5 M4 CQB Assault Rifles, 5 Socom PDW Carbine Rifles and 5 FO6R Assault Rifles. Available as selection into any of “u pickâ€￾ levels and as a separate add-on for an additional fee. ALSO, the Marauder Series #8 Weapon set is NOW eligible for inclusion in ANY of the "u-pick" levels!
NEW “500 Backer Levelâ€￾ Stretch Goal- We hit 500 Backers, a WHITE Exo-Suit is “Unlockedâ€￾ and added to the All-In & Mayhem Levels. Available as selection into any of “u pickâ€￾ levels and as a separate add-on for an additional fee.

NEW “575 Backer Levelâ€￾ Stretch Goal- We hit 575 Backers, a RED with WHITE Male “Rescue-Opsâ€￾ Figure is “Unlockedâ€￾ and added to the All-In & Mayhem Levels. Available as selection into any of “u pickâ€￾ levels and as a separate add-on for an additional fee.

NEW “650 Backer Levelâ€￾ Stretch Goal- We hit 650 Backers, a RED with WHITE Female Valkyries MTF “Rescue-Opsâ€￾ Figure is “Unlockedâ€￾ and added to the All-In & Mayhem Levels. Available as selection into any of “u pickâ€￾ levels and as a separate add-on for an additional fee.

NEW “725 Backer Levelâ€￾ Stretch Goal- We hit 725 Backers, a SURPRISE item is “Unlockedâ€￾ and added to the All-In & Mayhem Levels. Available as selection into any of “u pickâ€￾ levels and as a separate add-on for an additional fee.

NEW “800 Backer Levelâ€￾ Stretch Goal- We hit 800 Backers, a SURPRISE item is “Unlockedâ€￾ and added to the All-In & Mayhem Levels. Available as selection into any of “u pickâ€￾ levels and as a separate add-on for an additional fee.

We are almost 2/3 of the way through the event! We all know the REAL action happens during the last 10 days! Help spread the word about the Marauder Task Force Kickstarter event and we will be able to release even MORE items!

As always, THANK YOU for your SUPPORT!

Hey Taskers!

We passed $100K in pledges...thank you! Thanks to hitting that milestone, the distance between each stretch goal has been reduced to only $8,000! Also, we "adjusted" the order of several of the unlocked stretch goals to meet your requests! Can unlock more K9 Dogs & Contract Ops figures sooner! In addition, the "Exo -Suit" gear sets have been REMOVED from the event... because EACH Exo-Suit will receive ALL those additional weapons & accessories added for FREE! So each Exo-Suit will come FULLY equipped with ALL gear! And lastly, the highly requested "Agency-Ops" stretch goal is now OFFICIALLY in the stretch goals! NOT added as the final stretch goal, but inserted into the middle of the unmet stretch goals! When unlocked, each Agency-Ops figure will come with a full business suit, a 2nd Dress shirt torso, an extra set of rolled up sleeve forearms and Utility vest with pistol & holster.

I'm gonna wait for the dogs. Of course, I said that about the Valkyries, too, and I still don't own any of them. The tribulations of a lapsed 1:18er.

It looks like the PMCs are on track for a September release, and it looks like the WWII Kickstarter will be up at the end of the month.

Personally, I would love to see them come out with accurate WWII US figures,Weapons and gear too. I am very late to collecting 1/18, after collecting 1/6 for many years.

We'll see what they cook up at the end of the month. I doubt they top Unimax and Dragon's accessories, but these should be the best moving WWII action figures since Hiya's.
