Marauder Task Force Wave Two Female Figures Kickstarter Goes Live

The Marauder Task Force Gaming Figures has to be one of the most successful action figure kickstarter campaigns to date.  Their original goal of $30,000 to produce a line of articulated and customizable 3.75″ action figures was smashed with Marauder Gun-Runners reaching just shy of $255,000 for their campaign.

Wave two of the figures has been announced and has gone live on kickstarter featuring an all-female line called The Valkyries and they’ve already surpassed their funding goal of $34,000 (in less than 2 days) with 36 days (as of this post) left to go.

The first wave of figures were a hit with collectors (they fit in perfectly with GI.Joe) featuring great designs from Boss Fight Studio and a fun modular accessory dynamic that allows for near-total customization with interchangeable heads, protective gear and weapons.

This second wave is aiming to achieve the same effect with the removable headgear & vests having “modular” attachment points which provide the ability to “mix & match” the assorted modular equipment as desired. Also, there are “modular” accessory mounting points ON the actual figure. The figures and accessories will be available in assorted colors.

From the campaign: The Marauder Task Force Valkyries action figures feature articulation points at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, thighs, knees, and ankles. Rather than a “mid-chest” articulation point, the articulation point is in the waist. The swivel waist allows for greater movement and, most importantly, will not interfere with the modular vests when in use on the figures.

With Hasbro copping a whacking from the public over the lack of Black Widow/Scarlet Witch action figures, it’s great to see independent productions like Marauders getting into the female action figure game.  While several earlier kickstarter campaigns featuring similar ideas have failed (Agent AnnikaHumanoid YvonneLeigon XIV) Marauders previous and wildly successful outing has proved to be a winner.

Check out some of the base and stretch goal figures below:

As a big fan of the female GI. joe figures, I’ll be watching this kickstarter very closely.  Check out and back this campaign here!
