Just this past Tuesday, The Drawn Word kicked off their Eagle Force Strikes File Card campaign on Kickstarter. The initial offering before stretch goals was a total of (9) new Eagle Force file cards.
Three days later, the campaign has almost quadrupled its goal, bringing us an additional (9) Eagle Force file cards, for a total of 18! Here’s the scoop from the campaign –
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 18-card pack (new filecards are in bold). It features:
EAGLE FORCE CLASSIC (’80s team):
- Captain Eagle
- Goldie Hawk
EAGLE FORCE MEGA (’90s team):
EAGLE FORCE RETURNS:
- The Cat
- Ultima Thule
- Sgt. Blackstone
- Declan Van Helsing
- Wild Bill
- Major Draconis
And NINE Top Secret new ones just added through stretch goals!
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!
This campaign is running a bit shorter, with only 10 days left to go, so don’t hesitate to get your pledge in! I’ll of course do my best to bring you more updates as they’re made available. Stay tuned!
