Fresh Monkey posted an image of the tooling sample for the RIOT Commando. Check it out and sound off after the jump!
Just got our 1st look at the tooling sample for the RIOT commando. Still some issues to work out but fun to see.
Happy Friday, Eagle Force fans! There’s a pair of updates that were shared earlier in the week, so let’s get to it! –
Our friends behind Eagle Force Returns are looking to get some some feedback from you, the HISSTANK.com faithful – What would you think of a plastic display base like the one pictured above with interchangeable backdrops? If brought to market, they’d be offered in a few different colors. Make sure to sound off after the break!
Also, this past Wednesday brought us the 4th page of the Eagle Force Returns web comic, Shattered Peace! A vote must be made as to whether or not to grant Ridgewood International a UN Security Contract. Will Baron Von Chill succeed? Read on and stay tuned! [Read more…]
The folks behind the effort to bring us Eagle Force Returns have been hard at work sharing updates over the last few days, so we’ve rounded them all up below for your reading pleasure! Let’s get to it!
First and foremost, a big congratulations goes to our friend Chris from The Drawn Word on the birth of his son! Both Mom & Boy are doing well and are back at home!
Speaking of The Drawn Word, Chris has shared word via the Eagle Force Goldie Hawk Photo Card Kickstarter Campaign Page that a few of you came together to make sure, through hook and crook, that we make the stretch goal for Cat cards! Now, the amount of cards that will be created hasn’t been budgeted as of yet, but a teaser of “The Cat Mission files” was shared and we’ve mirrored it here after the jump for your viewing pleasure.
Next up, by way of the Eagle Force Returns Facebook Page comes our first look at a couple of test shots from the molds for the Eagle Force figures…these are VERY VERY early and need work but Fresh Monkey just loves showing behind the scenes images and we’re thankful for it!
While we’re talking about figures, an update was made to the Larry Hama Action Figure Kickstarter Campaign Page. The update shares tools that will be used to bring “The Creator” to life and also shares word of the cut off for the backerkit – July 15th. If you want to ADD ON additional items to your order now is the time.
Wrapping up the Eagle Force Returns news is a pair of updates for Eagle Force: Monster Force. The Fresh Monkey Fiction Website now has an area dedicated to sharing Bios for characters from Monster Force! The first group of bios includes Declan Van Helsing, The Forgotten King, Dracula and Dr. Rand! Not only are bios available, but Fresh Monkey also shared an early look at The Forgotten King that we’ve also shared after the break.
That’s a lot of Eagle Force Returns awesomeness to digest, so once you’ve caught up, join us after the break for discussion already in progress!
There’s a trifecta of Eagle Force Returns updates to bring your way, so let’s get to it –
First up, the Eagle Force Goldie Hawk Trading Cards Kickstarter Campaign has only 4 days left to go! The campaign is only $243 from reaching The Cat Photo Pack card set! Once we hit this goal, it’ll be like getting to sets of cards for the price of one! If you’ve picked up previous card sets, then you know that these are quality. If you haven’t jumped in on this campaign as of yet, now is the time to do so!
While on the topic of campaigns, our friends at The Drawn Word have sent out some great news – All of the books were just dropped off at their nearby post office today! It was a harrowing fulfillment mission: Staples canceled a crucial order of boxes without advising, Drawn Word ran out of tape, had to go on a box hunt this morning, ironically fight cats off from wanting to lay on everything–but out they are!!!!! Every package should have a white envelope with your RIOT Direktor, Cat foil, and mail-in card form card. International orders got the mail-in card with their order, but have all promised to keep it under their hat for the rest of you.
Last but not least, the Eagle Force Returns Facebook Page has begun sharing a new web comic entitled “Shattered Peace”. Page 01 is now available (and mirrored in this post), with a new page being posted every Wednesday! The story is written by Justin Bell and Illustrated by Ryan Lord.
You can discuss all the latest Eagle Force news right here on the HISSTANK.com forums after the break!
Our friends at The Drawn Word have shared an update via Kickstarter that aims to please!
After getting some fantastic input from many of you, the Campaign has been updated with some new stretch goals a few days ago. Not only has The Drawn Word included BTS (behind the scenes) cards from both shoots, but also a special Eagle Force Mega character design reveal. Who is he? You’ll find out after the campaign reaches the $2,600 goal and these go out.
The new Eagle Force Goldie Hawk Trading Cards Kickstarter Campaign stretch goal tiers are as follow –
So what are you waiting for? Go get your contribution in, then join us after the break for discussion already in progress!
There’s a new update to share with you from the Eagle Force Returns Kickstarter Campaign! –
They’ve begun their tooling phase for the figures (images attached to story). Just a bunch of steel blocks…Fresh Monkey knows it doesn’t look very exciting but they’ll be using these steel tools for a while so it’s a thrill for all involved to see them. The tools will take about a month to finalize then we should start seeing samples toward the end of July…we’ll be sure to share images of those as soon as we get them.
Fresh Monkey Fiction & Zica Toys are also working up the design for the packaging. They were originally planning on doing boxes for the line but they’ve been toying with the idea of collector friendly card backs..like they’re Amazing Heroes line. If they go this route it would look something like this (see above). Post a comment and let us know what you think. Do you think this is a better direction? Make sure to make your voice heard after the break!
The Eagle Force Returns Facebook Page has shared another reveal from the highly anticipated wave 2 of Eagle Force Returns – This time around, we get to check out Redwing II, the Eagle Force Survival Expert!
It goes without saying that Redwing looks fantastic and will be a welcome addition to our Eagle Force Returns collections! What are your thoughts on Redwing? Sound off after the break!
Our friends from The Drawn Word have done an amazing job, working alongside Fresh Monkey Fiction to bring us the mythos of Eagle Force. The latest offering from The Drawn Word brings us a set of photo cards based on none other than Goldie Hawk herself! Goldie Hawk is one of the standouts in Eagle Force, and it’s high time we give her the attention she deserves! Eagle Force Strikes: Goldie Hawk photo cards will bring Goldie to life through the help of friends at DoubleTake Studio and talented actress/model Leah Martin.Eagle Force Goldie Hawk Photo Cards Kickstarter Campaign
The Goldie Hawk pack follows Goldie’s secret solo mission from 1987. Goldie races to answer a distress beacon from an abandoned R.I.O.T. laboratory in Germany. Who and what she encounters will play out in Eagle Force Mega and Eagle Force Returns! You can get the cards in a clear team bag, or with a limited sleeve box. This is a preliminary design, using the original toy packaging art. The final will have a photo image of Leah as Goldie. You can actually get one of two prototypes (seen above) at the Sleeve Box Prototype level! Also, the Drawn Word Eagle Force level is the last chance to get the limited Lost Brigade cards in the Eagle Force Strikes! set, so get them while they last as there’s only 5 left!
The levels for this campaign are as follow –
The campaign will be fully funded once it hits $1,250.00. From there, the first stretch goal is set at the $2K mark, which gets “The Cat Photo Card pack” made!

Earlier this week, the Eagle Force Returns Facebook Page shared a pair of artwork reveals for upcoming Eagle Force: Monster Force characters. The reveals introduce us to Chatsworth, a Sasquatch and Shurukahn, the Yeti! The included verbiage is pretty awesome, check it out –
Chatsworth: I only know three things…Vampires smell weird, I’m the only Sasquatch to get a Class 3 Firearms Certification and it’s not a donut if there’s no chocolate. So talk all you want, ’cause I haven’t been listening.
Shurukahn: Hubris is the providence of men. Their time has passed, and so shall pass their memory when my kind walks the World alone.
Note: If you want a preview of what this figure will look like pay close attention to the gorilla figure from the Animal Warriors of The Kingdom Kickstarter.
Monster Force is shaping up to be quite the exciting project, wouldn’t you agree? Make sure to get in on the discussion after the break!
Today seems like the day for reveals! The Fresh Monkey Fiction Instagram Page shared our first look at Sgt. Eagle from Eagle Force ’42! The caption on the image invites us to find out the secret origin of Eagle Force in 2018!
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to add this figure to my collection! Will you be adding Eagle Force ’42 to your shelves as well? Sound off after the break!
