1:18th Scale Toy News & Rumors


Heads up! The fine folks over at Grindstone Toys have shared an update on their Callsign: Longbow Kickstarter campaign; Check out This killer art update for Alberto “Uptown” Chapman!


It’s time again for a progress update. February and March have been busy months for our team and we’ve been hard at work on everything CALLSIGN: LONGBOW™. 

Art Update

This month’s packaging art update is LONGBOW™ 2-2’s newest member, ALBERTO “UPTOWN” CHAPMAN! Uptown may be the new guy, but he’s already an accomplished soldier and keeps his cool in combat. As with all CALLSIGN: LONGBOW™  figures, this art is done by legendary illustrator & painter Douglas Hart.

Sculpting Update

While we’re on the subject of UPTOWN, let’s take a look at his newly completed digital sculpt!

ALBERTO “UPTOWN” CHAPMAN comes with a helmet, backpack, rifle, and knife. The knife accessory can be stored on the side of the backpack.

This tooling includes accessories for “GHOST”  as well as the “RETRO WOLF TROOPER / SKELETRON” figure for the ROBOSKULL MKII by our friends at SKELETRON!

We will once again be in attendance at JoeFest, June 9-11 in Augusta, GA. You can find out more about the show here: https://www.joefestusa.com/

Thank you again to all of our backers for making this project a reality!


What’s old is new again and I’m ALL-IN on the 1:18th revival going on as of late! Uptown looks amazing and I honestly can’t wait to add him to my collection.
