Fresh Monkey Fiction is probably best known to fans for their excellent Eagle Force action figures. However, they are also producing a line of retro inspired Super Hero figures. The Amazing Heroes line consists of vintage super heroes, many from the Golden Age of comic books. We reported on their successful Kicktarter campaign for the Amazing Heroes in August of 2014. The most well known is Captain Action, but they have many others that have been revived and reinvented. The Amazing Heroes figures are designed to evoke classic 80’s action figure lines, such as DC Super Powers and Marvel Secret Wars. The figures stand at 4.5″ tall and feature 5 points of articulation. Some come with capes, weapons, alternate heads or other accessories. Each figure comes in collector friendly, slide out, card backs. Even better, there are alternate card backs offered for each figure, allowing you to swap them out as you see fit. Series 1 consists of the following figures:
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
