Today on Toy Wizards, we’re bringing some attention to an awesome Kickstarter project from Fresh Monkey Fiction.

 

FRESH MONKEY FICTION IS CONTINUING IT’S AMAZING HEROES RETROVERSE LINE OF VINTAGE STYLE COMIC BOOK ACTION FIGURES WITH NEW LIMITED EDITION CHARACTERS.

For those of you new to Amazing Heroes, the Retroverse line is inspired by vintage action figures from the 1980’s such as Secret Wars and Super Powers. Each figure stands 4.5” tall and has 5 classic points of articulation (POA). The Retroverse collection features classic Golden Age comic book characters such as Black Terror, Golden Age Daredevil, Green Turtle and Stardust, along with more modern characters like Captain Action and Mike Allred’s Madman.

We are continuing the Amazing Heroes Retroverse Collection by offering a new figure every quarter via a short 14 day Kickstarter Campaign. Each quarterly figure in the Amazing Heroes Retroverse Collection will be limited to only 100 pcs worldwide. Our 1st figure for 2018 is the Golden Age hero, The American Crusader!
