Hi Boss-Fighters! In this update, we’re going to talk about Kickstarter timelines, pre-orders and shipping!
The timeline we have from our factory right now – barring any delays – has the entire production run arriving by early February. Our current goal is to have all Kickstarter orders shipped in February. We’ll be receiving the production run in two parts, the first part in late January. We will be shipping it to backers in two shipments as well, so you can get your toys as early as possible!
We’ll be opening up limited pre-orders for all waves of Series 1 Carded figures, Skeletons, Pre-Curse Medusa, Tartarus Guard, Blanks and Accessory packs on 12:01 EST, Monday December 7th! If you missed out on the Kickstarter and want to be among the first to receive your V-HACKS figures, don’t delay! If you’re already a KS backer, and you want to buy additional items in the pre-order, that’s awesome, but please be aware that we cannot combine shipping on KS items and pre-order items. Pre-Orders will be shipping mid-March to give us time to be sure all of the Kickstarter backers have received all of their items.
Howdy to all of our new followers! Just to make things clear on some frequently asked questions-
1. Our V-HACKS figures are available for pre-order on our webstore. They will be shipping after the Kickstarter shipments have been completed.
2. We *will* ship internationally.
3. Our figures will be for sale primarily through our own web store and select collectible stores. They will not be for sale at mass-market retailers at this time.
4. Our figures are *adult collectibles* intended for ages 15 and up. They are not toys for children, and have not been safety tested for that purpose.
5. Kickstarter orders will ship before any other orders.
Dave and Catrina are returning from an extended and successful trip to meet with our factory and approve final samples before we start production. We’re extremely encouraged with the high quality of samples we’re seeing, and can’t wait for you guys to have them in hand. We’ll be announcing formal dates shortly and opening up limited pre-orders for those that missed the Kickstarter!
Images behind the cut!
As we prepare for toy production, we have launched our Boss Fight Studio store! So far we are just actively selling apparel (t-shirts, etc…) but are preparing for a the full fledged product roll out.

Thanks to our friends at Hisstank.com, we’ve got some great new photos to show off our display from this past weekend’s NJCC. We gave you a first look at the future NJCC exclusive ULTIMATE SPARTAN with a battle-worn deco as well as the YELLOW and RED SKELETONS and a look at how they can wear items from the BLOOD RED ACCESSORY PACK.
Bringing some updates to the revised site –
This is the big one. We have the process rolling to our satisfaction and we can finally announce dates. But first, a little background:
When we started Boss Fight Studio almost two and a half years ago, we knew we wanted to do more than freelance development for other companies – our main goal was to develop our own product. Something without compromise, that we could stand behind, that would be among the best collectible toys out there. Thanks to all of you, the Kickstarter campaign was successful beyond all expectations. Since this was our first crowd funding campaign, the flip side of this success was that we ended up adding far more items than we had initially planned on, and development on those additional items took time.
We just caught this cool article summing up some of the best Star Wars: Clone Wars action figures. Andrew and Erik worked on much of this list, along with mentors Mark Boudreaux and Brian Merten. Check it out HERE!
Thank you! Our supporters are unbelievably generous – making us the most successful action figure Kickstarter to date!
