Fresh Monkey Fiction, Toy Otter Toys, and Big Bad Toy Store have combined forces to launch a new Longbox Heroes Collection featuring some of the greatest comic book characters not created by the Big Two.
The 4.5″ action figure assortment includes: Mike Allred’s Madman, Matt Wagner’s Grendle, Eric Powell’s The Goon, Tim Seeley’s Cassie Hack, Ben Edlund’s The Tick, Michael T. Gilbert’s Mr. Monster, and three figures based on Dave Stevens The Rocketeer comic (Rocketeer, Black Phantom, and Onslaught trooper).
Each figure is currently available for pre-order, but each individual piece must meet a minimum 1500 figure threshold to go into production, which ends on August 30 (and Fresh Monkey Fiction has an official counter which will be updated every 48 hours, so you can see how far your favorite hero has to go to meet their goal).
Each exclusive figure comes with a retail price of $24.99, and can be ordered individually, as a full set, or as a Rocketeer three-pack. If some of the figures don’t meet their production goals, the price of each set will be adjusted accordingly (which currently stand at $174.99 and $74.99 respectively).
Each figure in the new line was designed and sculpted by toy industry veteran and historian Jason Geye.
If all of the Rocketeer figures get funded, a stretch goal will be activated for another Rocketeer Onslaught army builder figure. An additional mystery figure will be added to seven figure base set if each one crosses the finish line as well.
Check out the full assortment below and be sure to check on the status of your favorites on a regular basis.
