Can I just say what an awesome time it is to be a 1:18 scale action figure junkie? I mean seriously.
I see G.I. Joe fans gnashing their teeth about no Joes at retail, but holy cow when I see stuff like this, suddenly it’s not so painful.
Marauder is over in China at the moment, and I gotta believe he pulled these samples straight from the factory, and I am SO glad he did. I don’t know if I could be any more in love with four inch pieces of plastic than I am right now. Just a simple dude in a t-shirt with elbow pads and a pistol is knocking me out. I want these. Like nowish.

I recently had the chance to talk with Marauder John, of Marauder “Gun Runners” about their exciting new World War II action figure Kickstarter. From their beginnings of producing high-quality 3-3/4” scaled weapons and accessories, through their first action figure Kickstarter that introduced the Marauder Task Force, to the recent addition of the Valkyries, collectors have discovered Marauder products can’t be beat when it comes to military action figures. In addition to their great product, Marauder’s unparalleled customer service has helped establish them as a leader in the action figure collectible business. The Kickstarter just went live, so if for some reason you’re on the fence about making your pledge, learn more below about the WWII endeavor from the man himself- Marauder John!
The day is finally here!
A ton of great work behind the scenes has been going on for a while, and I’m thrilled to announce that the Kickstarter for the Marauder Task Force RPG is officially LIVE.
Tapping into resources from very talented industry professionals, a really unique gaming system has been built around the Marauder Task Force formula and it promises to be a LOT of fun for folks who love military action figures and military stories.
If enough support is put towards the project, there are even some exclusive Marauder Task Force figures that can be unlocked!
If you’re a fan of Marauder Task Force, or even other 1:18 military action figure lines, this RPG is right up your alley. Check it out at Kickstarter and help support us. I’m beyond thrilled to be involved in writing for this project and greatly look forward to bringing it to fans everywhere upon Kickstarter funding.
Check it out now!
As of a few days ago, the folks who backed the latest Marauder Task Force Kickstarter should have started receiving their “BackerKit” surveys, which allow backers the opportunity to tell the Kickstarter creator specifically what products they want (and if they want any add-ons).
But the Marauder Task Force Backer Kit came with a nice little surprise. Marauder has announced that along with the surprise Agency Ops figures that were added to the Kickstarter in the later stages, they will also be releasing female versions of the Agency Ops figures as well! Those figures were available in the Backer Kit and we should expect them to be in the store afterwards as well, which is very exciting news!
Check out the concept art below by the exceedingly talented Troy McKie, good friend of GeneralsJoes and fantastic toy designer to boot. Great stuff, and even more awesome things to look forward to with the release of the Task Force Kickstarter items!
While you wait, make sure to hit up MarauderInc.com and get all the gear your characters will need when they hit your mailbox.
What a final day for the latest Marauder Kickstarter! I was already intrigued by this Kickstarter at launch, merely because the Exo-Suit looked so cool, and I was definitely on the hook for a few of the Contract Ops figures.
The K-9 ended up impressing me more than I thought it would, and then when news got out that they would be making Agency-Ops figures as a part of this deal? Yeah, I knew I was on board.
Whether or not we’d even hit Agency Ops was still in question leading to the last day. It was a stretch goal at the $
214,000 $172,000 level, which felt a bit out of reach with 24 hours remaining. But everyone came together, and we ended up smashing that goal, the Kickstarter rounding off at nearly $218,000!
Huge congrats to the always great folks at Marauder for another successful Kickstarter, and a big thanks to Tommy over on the Marauder Task Force Facebook Page who whipped up a spectacular graphic outlining what would be contained in the “All In” pledge level (this is essentially everything that got unlocked during the Kickstarter).
This is a great look at more terrific additions to an already impressive product line. Marauder continues to reinvent 1:18 scale military action figures, and I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these and to see what’s still up their sleeves.
