This spring’s New Jersey Collectors’ Con has come and gone, and there were a ton of great reveals from the folks at Boss Fight Studio. While we’ve already seen some sporadic images from the show floor itself, over on ToyArk they’ve posted some insane galleries featuring all of the new figures that were shown. I’ve mirrored a small selection of their images below, but you can hit up ToyArk directly to see over 100 images of these great looking items!
This includes figures tentatively scheduled for Series 02, Waves 04 and 05:
- Naga Serpent
- Dragon Harvester
- Half Orc Mage
- Psionic Warrior
Along with this, several great images of Bucky O’Hare figures were shown as well, including the previously unknown Stealth Deadeye Duck and Aniverse Bucky O’Hare releases!
Some more details were shown about the upcoming Mighty Steed Kickstarter, scheduled to hit this month, including the apparent inclusion of Aspen’s Elk!
Finally, we got a nice look at the Hellhounds, an upcoming product release from Dream Concept Studios, the folks who brought us the Zombie Lab Kickstarter not so long ago.
Man, I’m really digging the looks of those Hellhounds!
Lots of cool stuff revealed at the show, and if this is what the independent toy scene is looking like these days, I’m cool with G.I. Joe being off retail shelves for a little while. Check out ToyArk.com for even more images than what I’ve shared above.
She’s en elf of many names… initially revealed at the New Jersey Collectors Convention, Cerisier was a very pleasant surprise. She had not appeared on any input drawings or concepts before her reveal, and many folks were a bit confused by where she fit in.
Technically not a part of wave 3 she also had been identified by several separate names (Sakura Elvish Assassin and Cherry Blossom Elf among others) and folks were a bit unsure of her place.
Well, Boss Fight Studio gave us all a pleasant surprise, revealing that she was a BossFightShop.com exclusive and she is available for sale RIGHT NOW.
As many folks have gotten used to, Cerisier is another excellent release from Boss Fight. Using the familiar female body style with an updated head (it almost looks like Lacuna’s head with a different hairpiece) this Elf has long, pointed ears and a sleek appearance giving more credence to her role as a deadly assassin. With gray skin (colored by dark ink to blend in to the shadows) and a fantastic combination of pale colors on the secondaries, she manages to look dark and stealthy and colorful and vibrant both at the same time. The folks at Boss Fight have a true sense of artistry with these figures, knowing just how to combine the right colors, enhancing the figure. So many toys these days have colors for the sake of having colors, without those color schemes really making sense. The Vitruvian HACKS series has a clear template and purpose for each color they choose, and the end result is a far more aesthetically pleasing end product.
Cerisier uses the same secondaries as Aiyana the Autumn Elf, but with these different colors, comes across as a much different looking character, and one that I really enjoy. It goes without saying that the articulation on the H.A.C.K. part system only further accentuate the greatness of this figure, as she feels exceptionally well constructed, yet has been remarkably easy to swamp around. The female body style that Boss Fight uses is the best in the business and every time I get a new figure of theirs it’s a true highlight.
One nice thing about Cerisier is that she actually comes with some new gear. By the looks of it, it’s gear that will be repurposed for Narissa in Wave 2, but hitting first with Cerisier gives us a nice glimpse at some items still to come. The crossbow, hip quiver, and three crossbow bolts are all really great accessories and allow this Elvish assassin some mobility as she moves about the darkness, hunting down her targets. She also comes complete with a pair of the same knives that Aiyana initially came with as well.
Cerisier was a surprise addition to the Vitruvian HACKS universe, but has been a very welcome one. The spectacular construction, functional accessories (she can actually hold her crossbow realistically!) and excellent new paint scheme all come together to give us another really great, really fun Vitruvian HACKS product.
Ever since fans got their first glimpse at the Vitruvian HACKS Fantasy Series, they’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of these spectacular looking figures.
Well we’re not quite at release time yet, but the Pre-Orders are LIVE! You can log into BossFightShop.com right now and buy ’em up.
You’re not going to want to miss this opportunity. As collectors of the Greek series will tell you, product DOES run out, and I anticipate a huge demand for these gorgeous figures, so get your pre-order in while you can. Check out some of the images below, then immediately run to BossFightShop.com and grab ’em up.
Hot on the heels of the New Jersey Collectors Con, ToyArk.com has posted one of their usual mind-blowing galleries of the upcoming Wave 5 Vitruvian HACKS action figures. These images make me ecstatic, and very impatient about the short wait before Wave 5 hits Boss Fight HQ.
But even more importantly, images of the cardbacks seem to hint at the line up for an upcoming SEVENTH wave of Vitruvian HACKS Greek Mythology series. Hell, they don’t hint at it, they pretty much outright lay it on the line.
Check out the fantastic images at ToyArk.com, and also take a peek specifically at the cardback image which gives us the following lowdown for Wave 7:
- Warrior Skeleton
- Myrmex Warrior
- Gorgon Horde Serpentress Order
- Helios Warrior
A quick look shows us that the Helios Warrior appears to be a male counterpart of the upcoming Eos Warrior from Wave 6. Also, the Myrmex Warriors are likely designed to be compliments to the Myrmidon Warriors, who all served Achilles. Myrmex is also Greek for “ant” and the rumors are that Achilles’ personal army was created from ants. It will be interesting to see how the deco’s develop. I can’t even fathom what the story is behind that bad ass looking Gorgon.
Always great to hear new things on the horizon for Vitruvian HACKS. Considering the long wait ahead for the fantasy line, it’s awesome that Boss Fight can keep new product in the pipeline fairly regularly.
If you like what you see from Wave 5, you can still pre-order it now!
Boss Fight Studio has sent along a Kickstarter update today and it’s a pretty fantastic one!
