    So the figures are intended to resemble Marvel Secret Wars figures. Are these comic characters so old that they are officially public domain?

    Yes. Many of them are used by Image and Dynamite Comics (among others).

    DANG IT!!!

    I missed the deadline on the KS campaign, so I resorted to ordering them through BBTS. Now I won't be able to get John Carter because he is a KS exclusive figure, only available to those that pledged $18 or more during the campaign....


    I MUST have that John Carter figure!! I am a huge E.R. Burroughs fan. Well, here's hoping I can round one up on eBay for a decent (lol) price...

    I don't think you will need to appeal to eBay....it seens John Carter, along with Silver Streak and Madman, will be avaiable in the Wave 1.5 !
    Take a look: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ero-action-fig

    And that's a recent Bill Murphy's interview: http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/a...1-5-interview/

    Most of the characters are too old that they are indeed public domain....
    John Carter was refered as Champion of Mars...
    But I was thinking about Captain Action....do you know if we could include him ?

    Just received a notice and here is an interesting q & a for all you non backers that want a figure or two.


    Q: How long will the Pledge Manager be available?

    A: Once invites have been sent to all "Stage Three" eligible backers, the Pledge Manager will be up for 4 weeks, then we will open up orders for Non-Kickstarter backers.


    The initial help us test the system invites will go out within two weeks.

    Yay!! I ordered a couple of the John Carter figures!



    They are shipping now, and there is still limited quantities of most figures in the Amazing Heroes line available, if anyone still wants in.

    I also picked up Captain Action and Mike Allred's Madman!

    I got all my figures a while back.

    and speaking the card art it steals the show.

    This is QFT.

    The individual art done for each figure is awesome! It is so good that Fresh Monkey Fiction is offering just the backer cards for sale.

    I'm a huge fan of the old Secret Wars figures (I have all but the foreign figs MOC) so I'm especially looking forward to these... speaking of which, I can't tell by the pics, are they roughly the same scale as the Secret Wars figures?

    I don't have any of the old Secret Wars figures so I don't know. I believe I only had Kang growing up. Hey, I'm a DC guy what do you expect.

    Maybe someone else can chime in and answer.

    An acceptable answer with it next to a jumbo version of the secret wars figures with a reply of "no" is acceptable.

    Hmmm....years ago, I mentioned that MOTUC HE-RO would be a good place-holder for JOHN CARTER and my comment was completely deleted. I was very puzzled because I didn't think that I said anything offensive.

    No worries!

    I guess I'll know soon enough when my Amazing Heroes show up in the mail!

    Lol, this is awesome! A couple of years ago I posted pics of a custom John Carter I made in the MOTUC thread using He-Ro as a base!

    ORNCLOWN, that is fantastic! HE-RO's head really is a perfect JOHN CARTER head. Glad to see that my comment was eventually validated.
