Sounds pretty exciting! Everyone make sure you check out the Marauder booth at JoeCon, I’ve hit it in year’s past and it’s always a highlight of the Convention!
You could say the release of the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. line has been an exciting moment for me, and I’ve spent the last two weeks or so expressing that excitement with the development of a Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. archival website at VitruvianFACTS.com!
The Vitruvian F.igure A.ccessory C.ollection T.racking S.ystem is a Wikipedia style archive with entries for pretty much everything released to date (except for the non-Kickstarter Blanks) and I’ve spent hours over the past couple of weeks getting things loaded, updated and linked up. This will be a “working document” able to evolve over time, and in the spirit of WikiPedia, at some point I’ll likely open it up to contributors. At the moment it’s locked down to myself and a couple of others for updates, but it is possible that in the days to come things will open up a little bit.
So head on over to VitruvianFACTS.com and see what you think! Big thanks to the immeasurable Troy McKie for his help on the logo, and a huge thanks to the folks at Boss Fight Studio for their advice in insight as I developed the archive.
If you like the figures you see in there, don’t forget to head right over to BossFightShop.com and spend lots of money!
I will warn you, I’ve been experiencing some performance issues on the website and am keeping a close eye on them. It’s possible I may eventually migrate to a new webhost to see if it improves, but for now, I’m just looking to see how things work. Thanks for your patience as we work out any hitches as this goes forward.
Yeah, I’m a little removed from the news from MegaCon at this point, mostly due to working on another Vitruvian HACKS related project which I will hopefully be able to reveal very soon.
Boss Fight Studio has officially set up shop at MegaCon in Orlando, Florida this weekend, and is making some fantastic announcements!
First and foremost, they’ve revealed the digital sculpts for the first two figures in the Series 02 Fantasy line from Vitruvian HACKS. There are some key changes, especially to the knight, but the figures still look, as one might suspect, pretty fantastic.
But the even bigger news out of MegaCon, courtesy of Boss Fight’s Facebook Page is the reveal of a special Wave 5 from the Greek Mythology line! Featuring a Cursed Skeleton, the River Styx Guardian, a Boa Constrictor Gorgon, and the Amazon Commander Penthesilea! For folks who are unfamiliar with the history around Penthesilea, she was the daughter of Ares, and an Amazonian queen. Certain mythologies also connect her with Achilles, so it will be very interesting to see where this all plays out. We already have the Myrmidon Warriors, and now we’ve got Penthesilea, it’s pretty fantastic to see the dots slowly getting connected here. Boss Fight revealed first samples of the figures as well as the spectacular card art, check those mirrored images out below.
As if this wasn’t enough…they also revealed two brand new Silver Blanks!
But, wait… there’s more! Along with all of this exciting news, they’ve also announced a collaboration with them and Dream Concept on a new line of HACKS compatible ZOMBIE FIGURES. Holy cow.
Yeah, MegaCon has been pretty huge for Boss Fight Studio, and from the looks of things, more huge still to come. Follow along on the Boss Fight Studios Facebook Page. Even better, if you’re in the Orlando area, swing by MegaCon booth 818 and tell them GeneralsJoes says hello!
As we move within a month of the 2016 G.I. Joe Convention, Hasbro has posted an exciting update over on their Hasbro Pulse regarding the upcoming development of Fan Vote winner Stiletto!
Along with the update, we see a first look at Stiletto’s head sculpt and what looks to be an early concept for the figure build using parts from the Rise of Cobra Agent Helix. As a huge fan of the Helix action figure, I approve of this build big time.
Mark Weber mentions that Stiletto will appear at Toys “R” Us and Entertainment Earth in November, which surely seems to follow the familiar formula from the past couple of years, indicating that we will see some G.I. Joe product later this year. Let’s all look forward to JoeCon to see what’s up Hasbro’s sleeves.
Check out the full article over on Hasbro Pulse, and I’ve mirrored a couple of images below.
