Boss Fight Studio Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Kickstarter Update
The Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Kickstarter is right around the corner and the guys at Boss Fight Studio have been teasing everyone with info and pictures!
Boss Fight Studio updated their Facebook page over the past week or so with a lot of info about their upcoming Kickstarter, Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. The biggest news is that the Kickstarter video has been made and is up for review. It sounds like as soon as Boss Fight hears back from Kickstarter, they will start up the funding for this awesome looking project.
If you’re waiting to see why you should fund this project as soon as it goes live, I would just like to show you the massive detail on the sculpt for the prototype Gorgon BFS posted.
This is a beautifully sculpted 3 3/4″ figure. I really like the detail on the skull helm and I can’t wait to see what it looks like when painted.
The Medusa and Spartan prototypes show more of the sculpts we can expect from this line. I’m very interested to see how the segmented tail works on Medusa as I’ve yet to see a movable tail that stands on end like that. The Medusa and Gorgons alone will be awesome bases for Golobulus customs from GI Joe or other creatures one could make.
Speaking of customs, BFS has hinted that some of the stretch goals may include multiple blank bodies in a variety of colors including several flesh tones!
It sounds like if you want to make humanoid customs whether they’re fantasy themed, superhero themed or a more modern theme, these stretch goals may be what you’re looking for.
One of the stretch goal teases I’m really excited about has been shown in the earliest possible stage (A sketch on notebook paper) but the fact that they are going to be making an articulated skeleton has me anxious to see the final product!
For those that like using other toy line accessories with their figures, BFS even posted some pictures of their Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures holding a bunch of different Marauder Gun Runners weapons.
As you can see the figures can hold the weapons very well. These pictures also show off the articulation pretty well. They have similar articulation to a modern GI Joe figure. It appears they have 25 points of articulation in 15 different joints. (Neck, Shoulders, Elbows, Wrists, Knees, etc….) BFS has even mentioned that the Female figure has rocker ankles while the Male figure has the typical swivel/hinge ankle joint. They plan to eventually use both styles of ankles for Male and Female figures depending on which works best for the specific figure.
I’ve found myself more and more excited for this Kickstarter with each new update. I can’t wait to see all the details for this line and to eventually hold these great looking figures in my hands!
