Boss Fight Studio’s Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Action Figures

Boss Fight Studios are the designers behind many of the Modern G.I. Joe Figures and now they are branching off to create their own line of Highly Articulated Character Kit System. To get started they have created a Kickstarter campaign and need the support of the community to get these awesome figures out into the world. Their first series is based off Greek Mythology.

These seem to be more marketed toward the Custom Builder Community, but can certainly be enjoyed by any collector out there!

Our First Figures: Greek Warriors and Gorgons!

The theme for our first assortment of Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. action figures is Greek mythology. We were very excited by the huge scope of these particular mythos.  Our plan is to release an initial wave of four figures, plus several exclusives.

Female Action Figure Kickstarter “I Am Elemental”

Fierce female action figures that embody the Elements of Courage: Bravery, Energy, Honesty, Industry, Enthusiasm, Persistence & Fear.

IAmElemental Action Figures for Girls were designed to accomplish three goals.
First, they are intended to be a positive and fierce re-interpretation of the traditional female action figure.

Second, IAmElemental action figures encourage girls to reinvent the superhero myth by creating their own empowering stories. In the traditional, male-dominated superhero universe, action figures are endowed with powers from without (via a spider bite, mutant DNA, or some sort of “accident”). In the IAmElemental universe, the girl herself is the superhero – and she has all the superpowers she will ever need already inside of her.

Third, we set out to create a toy that is super fun to play with and collect. We knew from the outset that if the figures weren’t well-designed, nothing else would matter.
