army alpha cryptid toys

As promised, has an update to the exciting new Kickstarter information from Cryptid Toys. Along with future plans and a “Who Is” Cryptid Toys we hope you enjoy the update.

With the “Army Alphas” line from Cryptid Toys, you can finally build YOUR army, YOUR way!

Cryptid Toys will deliver the intricately sculpted, super articulated 1/12 scale (6″) action figures that the collector community craves. Having been an action figure collector, customizer, and enthusiast for many years, I decided it was time to make the jump to an action figure manufacturer since toy companies were not producing the figures that many collectors have been clamoring for. Working with some of the most talented sculptors in the business who have not only worked on some of the most popular brands, but also with leaders in the industry, these figures will be brought to life from concepts to high quality action figures.
