This Kickstarter fueled by the folks at The Fwoosh took the G.I. Joe community by storm a few months ago, especially with a few figures here bearing a passing resemblance to some of our favorite classic G.I. Joe ninja characters.
Well, if you didn’t have a chance to capitalize on the Kickstarter, you still have the opportunity to add some pretty cool looking 6″ ninja figures to your display shelves, as the Articulated Icons Feudal Series figures are up for pre-order now.
These are some pretty terrific looking figures, I have to admit, though I haven’t taken the plunge on any of them personally. I’ll be very interested to see how this all turns out, and look forward to seeing some in hand impressions so I can make an educated decision.
Check out the press release below, and hit their pre-order page right here.
The new year brings big news for Articulated Icons! If you missed out on our successful Kickstarter Campaign, you won’t want to miss this!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Los Angeles, CA: January 14, 2016 – Following the highly successful Kickstarter Campaign, Articulated Icons: The Feudal Series is now available for PRE-ORDER! What that means is, if you missed out on our Kickstarter campaign, or if you have decided you want to bolster your ranks even more, now you can!
All of our figures (save for the KS-exclusive Smokey Grey Ninja), can now be ordered through our store page, located HERE
If you are a backer or have been monitoring the Kickstarter campaign, you will notice that while this pre-order will be a part of our FIRST production run, these will be shipping AFTER all Kickstarter orders are fulfilled and shipped. Please note that this is NOT subject to change, so there will likely be a difference of a few of weeks between the end of the KS shipping and the start of the pre-order shipping. We will, of course, have better information about that as we get closer to fulfillment.
So, if you missed out on the Kickstarter, now is the time to order the Feudal Series! We will keep pre-orders
open for as long as we can into the production cycle, but we advise that you do not delay in placing an order — we will not have a lot of lead time to announce when pre-orders will end, so it might be abrupt to stay with the production timeline. Don’t miss out again!
Here are a few specific details about the pre-order structure and process:
- All pre-orders will be charged within 24 hours of the order being placed
- The base shipping fee for US is $10, everywhere else is $30. Individual figures shipping prices are listed with the figure and are added to the base shipping fee
- Pre-orders will be closed for each figure as they are sold out for our initial run (we will be holding some stock for conventions, etc.)
- If you are an existing Kickstarter backer and want to buy more, you can do so but it will be at the new pricing structure
So, we hope you had great holidays and are ready to build up your armies! We will be back with more regular updates now that we are in the new year, so look for more soon! Thanks for your continued support!

I’d mentioned this great looking Articulated Icons Kickstarter a while ago, mostly focusing on a particular “Deluxe White Ninja” figure that I thought might be one that G.I. Joe fans could be interested in.
As time has gone on, successful funding and the revelation of further stretch goals has proven this 6″ Ninja themed line to be pretty darn impressive in its own right. There are a lot of great looking figures here with a bunch of character, along with some nice masked troop builders. The Kickstarter campaign is nearing the finish line, with just a bit over two days to go, and while the initial funding goal has been met (and then some) there is still some room to unlock a few more stretch goals.
While it currently sits at a bit above $180,000, once it hits $200,000 more figures get unlocked, and then at $250,000 ALL stretch goal figures will be unlocked! That’s not a huge jump from where things are now, and there are some downright gorgeous figures to be had at all levels. Do yourself a favor and check out Articulated Icons on Kickstarter and consider dumping some cash in to get these other stretch goals unlocked. This looks like a fantastic line if you’re a 6″ collector. Check out the Kickstarter right here, and take a peek at the mirrored images below.

There have been lots of discussions on various message boards about the possibility of G.I. Joe going to a six inch collectors scale. While I personally would enjoy seeing that to a certain degree, I also would hope that it doesn’t impact the 4″ line, and I’m not convinced it would be the financial success that some folks think it might be.
But we’re getting our first look at a potential link to G.I. Joe in a six inch scale with the Articulated Icons Kickstarter that starts now! Focusing on Ninja figures from the Feudal period, one of those ninjas bares a striking resemblance to Storm Shadow, which is pretty neat.
Check out the full press release below, and consider supporting this ambitious Kickstarter project. There are a lot of potential stretch goals available here as well, and this looks like a pretty fun new project for toy collectors to support. Check it out right here and read the details below.
