Yeah I feel like I need some of these.. but $25 a figure.. sigh. The original Marauder kickstarter was like $13/figure!

These look cool though, and I have some Huey's that need crewing.. but damn if it doesn't get spendy.

How is the quality of newer Marauder figures? Are they still more on the plastic-y toy side of things?

Just Put in my 1st MGR order. (Got some suited figures for the presidential head Kickstarter. ) So I am not 100% sure of quality but at Joe on they had quite of few Not GI Joe’s. Which are interesting on their own.

I’m hoping they do a MP from the 716th MP Bn or one of the division MP companies like the 5th division. I pledged for one figure and I’ll add maybe some more when it’s pony up time.

Any of you in on this? Seems it would be right up this places' alley. We have started added new stretch goals since all the original were unlocked. I said we because during the WWII KS, I started doing prototype painting for John and have worked the booth the last 2 JoeFest. SO much cool stuff is being developed...

I’m in on this KS as always, I was hoping for a MP to fight with Charlie in Saigon during the Tet offensive. I’ll have to pick up a couple nurses as well. Vietnam was my dad’s war and most of the senior NCO’s when I served were veterans of the Vietnam war. These pictures are ones I got from the internet but reflect what I’m looking for 🙂👍 I already have several M151 Jeep’s for convoy security or village patrol. P.S. Not everyone in Vietnam wore jungle fatigues, the regular od green fatigues with tuck in shirts had its place there too and would be a great addition.

Well since we have ourselves an in…..
I just recently gotten my hands on the suited figures. Any chance of seeing a big body, looking for the right body type for a certain Blues Brother?

I have not heard of any big bodies as of yet...not saying never, just not in the current development plans. TONS of new stuff coming without KS. I am sure you all will love Marauder Ultra Figures. ;)

What are Ultra figures? Are y’all trying to financially ruin me?
Ultra is what US Military today. What they look like on the ground right now. BUT - added articulation including rocker ankle, thigh swivel, neck (I think) and chest will be new too such that you can get 2 handed pistol poses. Gear will be modular but not bodies (like WWII and Nam). Modern Camo schemes, combat shirts, new head sculpts...all without a KS. Many other things coming too (without a KS), more 1:12 weapons, tank tops and shorts for Males and Vals, new gear, a few new categories that include bodies and gear. If I can find where John said it outside the mayhem event - I will reveal it here. Pretty sure all I have revealed here he has openly stated somewhere. (I hope so anyway - good thing there is only 12 members here - LOL)

Are the ultra figures 1/18 like other MTF figures? I’m asking because you mentioned 1/12 weapons.
