This one needs to happen in a proper 1:12 scale.

Those are pretty good. I've pledged for a set of two, hopefully it'll be successful.

I wasn't paying attention and this kickstarter went live.

Thus far I don't have a lot of interest. The closest to an actual military figure is a stretch goal that really does seem like a stretch they'll reach. I'm gonna keep an eye on it though.

Well, it looks like it ended up only getting about half the funding it needed. In a surprise to nobody, he blamed kickstarter and "outside sources" for it being unsuccessful.

I saw him posting on several fan forums during the campaign, and his attitude was pretty terrible. He spent a lot of time attacking Hasbro and other, successful Kickstarters, and his general tone was rather snippy and snarky. That was the biggest factor in my decision not to pledge for this campaign.

I had it set up to remind me, but when it came up and I saw they weren't even halfway funded I didn't see the point.

I get the feeling they needed a few "wow!" figures to go with the grunts, otherwise it just wasn't the sort of thing that enough people would search for.
