    Eon Quest - My Line of 5.5'' Action Figures!

    Hello all! So...

    This has been a long time coming, and I thought I'd share it with you all here. I've been developing a line of 5.5'' action figures. I've JUST now started teasing the line. Next week will be reveal week, where I reveal all the characters in Series 1 in anticipation of the Kickstarter and the big media push that will help get the figures into production. I hope you guys like it. I think MOTU fans, in particular, are going to get a kick out of these.

    Here's the key art for the line, which reveals all the heroes - Lord Eon, Alchemris, Lady Lune, Uplink, Boostar, Lila Baron and Starbreaker!


    Reveal Week Begins!

    Tuesday - Uplink, Technopath of the Gradius Cluster!

    Monday - Starbreaker, Last of the Gammerons!

    Thanks so much! Thanks for checking it out. I know there's not a lot to see right now. That'll change very soon.

    Very cool Jon. Can't wait to see the full reveals!!
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Thanks guys! I'm not gonna lie, Wednesday's figure is one of my personal favorites, too. Both as a character and as a figure.

    I have to admit, the one with the peg leg has me concerned that the toy itself will fall over if a butterfly flaps its wings. I'm thinking this is a line that will benefit from stands, or at least holes in the feet to use existing stands.

    You might be surprised! The peg on the bottom is kind of angled so it matches his stance. This'll make more sense when you see him. Both with the 3D print-out and the factory prototype, he's been a solid stander. I'm sort of torn on peg hole in the feet. Maybe that's something I can ask people about, as far as preference.

    Thanks abaddon! On that note... Reveal week begins!

    First up is the leader of our heroes, Starbreaker!


    Starbreaker
    Last of the Gammerons
    Thousands of years ago, the Gammerons were the mightiest beings in the Ninth Galaxy, and worshipped as gods by many planets. Then, suddenly, they were struck by a terrible affliction that wiped out nearly their entire race. Only Starbreaker managed to escape being infected. Starbreaker wandered the cosmos, alone and haunted by his failure to save his people, until he was recruited to lead Lord Eon’s team of heroes. Nearly indestructible, but not immortal, Starbreaker can survive the vacuum of space and is incredibly strong. He wields the Starhammer, a powerful weapon forged in the fires of the Gammeron home world. In keeping with Gammeron tradition, his weapon is chained to his arm—a constant reminder that beings with such power should temper their might, or be consumed by it.

    Looks great! Good work man! I really dig the eyes and the hammer looks great. Are these geared towards the adult market or are they Kid friendly?

    Very impressed with what I see so far. Can't wait to see the remaining reveals as the week progresses.

    Thanks guys! He-dad, these are aimed at the adult collector. To make them legally kid friendly, there's extensive (expensive) testing required.

    Lookin' good! That's the most amount of detail and paint apps that I've seen on a barbarian style figure of that size! It's the opposite of the dollar-store quality that the barbarian figure has been for years now.

    Happy to see that he's ready for action! I've always felt that a figure without knee or elbow articulation simply has to be posed ready to fight, and he fits the bill. Looking forward to the rest!
