News from Zica Toys! Check out the image after the jump.
Turns out the issues with the paint apps on the most recent samples weren’t nearly as bad as I originally thought. This is a new picture I recently received from the factory that was taken in much better lighting, giving a much more accurate presentation of the colors. As best I can tell everything looks accurate but I won’t be 100% certain until I have them in hand for review.
You’ll notice that the Captain Action and Captain Evil figures now come with alternate heads so that they can be displayed as identical clones if preferred.
Update: The line's back on!
The bad news is that this will obviously cause a further delay, but the good news is that the final product will meet my expectations and hopefully make backers happy after what has been an extremely long and frustrating wait.
Thanks again for your patience!
I was really excited and patiently waiting for this line too.
I didn't get in on this line, but I am sad to see it canceled. I hope this doesn't start other lines to get canceled.
As you can read the Eagle Force line got pushed back to 2nd quarter 2018!

I agree, that's discomfiting. I'd like to hear more details. I also wonder how the (third) factory can create a deal-breaking problem for these but the Eagle Force figures are unaffected (especially since I think they share some sculpting - but I could be wrong about that). Hopefully this doesn't end up becoming a trend.
Ugh. I was really looking forward to these... I wonder how it will affect the other lines that were supposed to share tooling...Eagle Force, Superheroes, etc. The only parts that were unique to AP were the heads and maybe some of the accessories. Perhaps we can still see this stuff somewhere down the line.
Oh, wow, that's terrible. I do hope they are able to provide a little more information on how and why this decision was made, and why this affects Adventure People but not the other lines.
That really sucks I was all in on these, but a refund will be welcome especially now.
I'm okay with delays--life happens--but I'd be remiss if I didn't remind people that EF was set for 1st Q 2018 at the latest, with the hope of the creator to deliver much earlier. His words. Ah, well. Not worried that Bill will come through.
I'm holding out opinion on Eagle Force until we hear from Fresh Monkey though...
Also, it did seem that Fresh Monkey has been distancing themselves from Zica ever so discreetly in comments of late. Like "you will have to ask them". Just sounds as though the partnership isn't much of a partnership. Just the way I see it and I may be wrong.
