My sentiment exactly! I would definitely contribute if at least one woman was added to the mix.
I had the thought that the line needed a female character or two. Not just regular females in dresses either. Their were quite a few strong female western characters. http://thewildwest.org/cowboys/wildwestlegendarywomen
Also if the line thrives and expands into some native American figures that would be a great direction.
Alyosha said:Fellas, this is something I've been working on with my business partner for the last 7 years. As a fan of great action figures, we want to make sure that these measure up in every way.The initial lineup is slated for 12 figures (11, plus 1 KS exclusive). We plan to go to KS in the late fall of this year. Horses are planned, but not in wave 1. The "t-crotch" figures are prototypes we purchased several years ago from the cancelled 2001 Dusty Trails line and are just inspirations for where our line is going. The Stagecoach is going to be a high end goal for wave 1. There will be gear and acc sets peppered throughout the KS, along with some "blank" figures to put those sets on for designing your own yahoos. More information is available on the FB website. And there will be new digital sculpt reveals this week after I get home from Colorado. Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
He also said that they're shooting for a six-week KS campaign to start on Oct 1st, but that if that timeframe fell through they'd hold off until March so nobody has to choose between Cowboys or Xmas gifts.As promised, now that I have had some sleep, here is a list of items that we are talking about for series 2 of the line provided the KS does well enough to get us through series 1 and have some capital left over:Soiled DovePrairie WifeSchool Marm/Shopkeeper's WidowCalvary OfficerCalvary Trooper Calvary Soldier (Buffalo Soldier)Gambler ShootistBlacksmith FiremanNative Tribal ScoutNative Tribal BraveNative Tribal ChiefArticulated Horse X4 different colorationsCannon w/ Trooper (Smalljoes.com exclusive)Gatling Gun w/ Soldier (website exclusive)All of these things are subject to change, but as you can see we have a pretty nice selection between just wv 1 and wv 2 of archetypes to fill out your town. If we get to wv 3, then we will have a "fat body" sculpted for the male figure to do some more and different towns people.Regarding the KS, when it goes live, there will be a poll for you guys to help pick names for the "Create Your Own Cowboy" and "Create Your Own Outlaw" as well as pick the color pattern for the Cowboy himself. More news on that as we approach the date.
JE RussellBlanks. Single Colored shirts with hands, single color pants with boots. What other reason would we have for adding gear (weapons, belts) and accs (coats, hats) in special colors not available on any figure to the KS at every other level? Oh, wait...did I just reveal something IMPORTANT?
Figures *from*? No, this will be an original line featuring archetypes and license-free characters. Figures *inspired by*? Quite possibly, depending on how beloved any of those films are by the team.Do you reckon they might do figures from Western films and TV shows like Silverado, Bonanza, The High Chaparral, Tombstone, The Hateful Eight, The Dollars Trilogy, Hell on Wheels, Cowboys and Aliens and even Bone Tomahawk?
Digisculpt for the Territories Lawman, which some say has a passing resemblance to Bass Reeves:
I sure hope it's possible to paint the horses to match the ones the Cartwrights used in the original show.
