Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Kickstarter Surpasses Funding Target; Hits First Stretch Goal

June 11th - via:
While we’re on the subject of Kickstarter projects for action figures, Boss Fight Studio’s Vitruvian HACKS blew past their funding target of $75K just a couple of days into their campaign. Shortly thereafter, they achieved their first stretch goal for a pre-curse Medusa – before she got turned into a half-snake Gorgon. I figure this will be a popular add-on figure. She’s got legs! She knows how to use them! (Read More)

Super-Poseable Clash of the Titans-esque Figures Just Got Kickstarter-Funded

June 6th - via:
Toy designers Boss Fight Studio, who've worked on many existing major toy lines, would appear to have been inspired by fellow sculptor/designers the Four Horsemen to create their own line - like many of the Horsemen's figures, these 4" Greek Mythology toys have interchangeable body parts, though the anatomy and articulation is more like Microman than Glyos. Unlike with the Horsemen, however, who either revive extinct licenses or create original material, these figures just barely skirt by as a unique line when they're pretty clearly Clash of the Titans with a touch of 300. (The Medusa above is a variant - there's an ugly-faced Harryhausen-style one with a snake tail too.) (Read More)

Boss Fight Studio’s Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Action Figures Now live on Kickstarter

June 4th - via:
To paraphrase an interesting man, “We don’t always promote Kickstarters, but when we do it’s because they are amazing.” That’s the case with the start up Boss Fight Studios and their modular action figure system Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Virtruvian, as in The Vitruvian Man and H.A.C.K.S which stands for Highly Articulated Character Kit System. Boss Fight Studios themselves are a relatively new start up company but they come with quite the pedigree. Collectively, their works include input and design on some of the brands that we all know and love like Marvel super heroes, Star Wars, GI Joe and of course Transformers. (Read More)
