This is it– the final day for the Marauder Task Force Valkyries Kickstarter campaign. The deadline to support this project is 10:31pm CST TONIGHT!
Rather than post a long-winded and meandering article on why you should support the Marauder Task Force Valkyries campaign, I’m going with a simple list of 10 reasons. Ten simple fact that you simply should consider when debating how to support this project. (Notice I didn’t say “if you should support”…)
Without further hyperbole:
5 Reasons You Should Support the Marauder Task Force Valkyries Kickstarter Project:
- These are poseable FEMALE action figures!
- Remember the Night Stalkers from the 2007 G.I. Joe Collector’s Convention exclusive boxed set and how excited fans were to get their hands on brand new detailed female figures? Imagine an entire figure line built around that same concept. Picture the Baroness with her own crack commando team? How about an all-female squad of green shirts to accompany Lady Jaye into battle? Or, what if Firefly had his own personal squad of “Lightning Bugs”?
- Marauder Task Force figures offer nearly limitless customizing potential.
- One only has to visit the Marauder Task Force Facebook Group (a closed group so be sure to request membership) to see the outstanding potential of these figures for creating custom figures. Designed primarily to work with Generation 3 “modern era” G.I. Joe figures, these figures have been re-purposed by fans to create amazing new figures from franchises ranging from Star Wars to the Marvel Universe. They’re the perfect “buck” for any type of 1:18 figure!
- Marauder Gun-Runners offers some of the best customer service in the online world!
- On a personal note, I’ve known Marauder John since the very beginnings of the Marauder Gun-Runners accessory line. (JBL was actually the first Joe site to interview John back in the day!) In the over eleven years that JBL has been in existence I’ve never met someone who is more dedicated to keeping his customers satisfied than Marauder John. From extra items included in orders as a “Thank You” to the fast friendly service, Marauder Gun-Runners has consistently set the bar for what it is to be a good online retailer for the action figure collecting community.
- It’s getting harder and harder to find good quality articulated figures at mass retail.
- This one is a sad but true revelation– action figures just don’t have the presence that they once did at mass retail. These days, the action figure aisle in most big box stores is 1/2 of what it used to be. The lines that are found are almost exclusively movie or TV tie-ins and many of these (Marvel and Star Wars) have seen severe reductions in both articulation and accessories in an attempt to cut costs. It would seem if the very concept of the action figure is to continue in today’s market it will be through speciality outlets such as Marauder Gun-Runners.
- The already-unlocked Stretch Goals are AWESOME!
- Seriously– from variations on the existing male MTF figures to even more incredible configurations for the Valkyries, the stretch goals for the Marauder Task Force Valkyries Kickstarter are truly AWESOME! Hazard Ops troops, female intel operators and pilots, and a male body that just might make you stand up and say “HAIL HYDRA!”.
Seriously– considering throwing some support behind this ALREADY FUNDED and incredible project. The deadline to contribute is Monday September 14, 2015 at 10:31pm CST. To throw in your support, use any of the links above or this one below:
