Heads up! The Drawn Word has launched a new Kickstarter campaign for a new set of Eagle Force file cards! Check it out –
Face front, Eagle Forcers! It has been a crazy year for yours truly, but I didn’t want you to feel forgotten. As I look towards the summer and more Eagle Force Pulp, I’m anxious to continue building our collections of Eagle Force file cards.
Created in the early 1980s as a short-lived military toy line at MEGO, Fresh Monkey Fiction has brought Eagle Force back to life in modern times, complete with modern sculpts and articulation. For the past several years, I’ve been helping make their world– where this 1980s crack spy team takes on the nefarious terrorist organization R.I.O.T.–as real as I can through pulp stories, trading cards, and now file cards.
Our mission is to build a dossier file of our favorite Eagle Forcers and R.I.O.T.ers, starting with this nine-card pack. It features:
EAGLE FORCE CLASSIC (’80s team):
- Captain Eagle
EAGLE FORCE MEGA (’90s team):
EAGLE FORCE RETURNS:
- The Cat
- Ultima Thule
And if you missed out on the special Eagle Force filecards from my last pulp campaign, I have 25 sets left. They include:
- The Cat (classic)
- Redwing (classic)
- Goregills (MEGA)
- Baron von Chill (classic)
Ready to have your own personal file card? I’m offering custom file cards as either digital ($25 for a PDF and JPEG file) or print ($100 for a print run of 100) as add-ons. I’ll personally write them for you and lay them out with the image of your choice.
Our goal of $500 should be met quickly, and lead us to fund even more filecards (the characters are Top Secret–for now). We’re going to keep going in the two weeks we have to fund this.
You in? Of course you are!
Risks and challenges
The biggest hang-ups are usually freakish production and postal ones, which I’ll keep you apprised of as they happen. Lucky for us, I’ve used this printer several times before and have the utmost faith in a job well delivered.
You KNOW I already placed my pledge! What about you? Will you be adding a set of new file cards to your EF collection? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
