Marauder Task Force 18th 'Vietnam' Kickstarter

Thu Jul 01, 2021 1:29 pm

Funded about an hour after launching, it blew through several Unlocks while we all slept. I'm contributor #139 (or #140, maybe), in for a 6pack.

Assuming we blow thru all the Unlocks, this is what I'll choose for my 6pack out of what's shown:

In for six, as usual I plan to grab kickstarter exclusives only if there are any and just grab anything else later.

Started at six but had to up it to 12. I plan to pick up all the Vietnam era U.S. servicemen and maybe a couple duplicates in the Backerkit. Not sure on the nurse yet but there's plenty of time to decide.

I knew this was gonna be a good one and MJ hasn't disappointed with the choices so far.

Real curious what the unrevealed stretch goals will be.

Europe has been excluded from this one it seems. Bit of a shame though it doesn't appear to have hindered the campaign much, if at all. I suppose I may try to pick these up from the site later.

The inclusion of the paratroopers from the WW2 campaign is a great idea. Always loved that Fallschirmjager.

I wasn’t super familiar with Vietnam designs, but it seems like pop culture used those uniforms as the basis for a lot of their own designs. Looks like I’ll be able to make quite a few characters once these hit.

At almost 3x over funding about a day after launching, might this be the fastest action figure KS campaign yet?

Since some new shipphing/taxes/customs rules over here in Europe, Marauder isn't shipping to us anymore. That's why Europe/UK is excluded in the campaign and also at the web shop.
On the other hand, Marauder will reverse this current state if there are any changes to these new rules. So let's hope some solution is not to far away.

Cutting the pics but I also backed for 6 and 5 out of my 6 match yours - going for the Stoner or Door gunner instead of the German paratrooper.

Didn't know this was coming, but it looks super cool. I might get the Marines and the SF radioman.

This line should honor the brave NVA and Vietcong soldiers, I hope it is not exclusively US soldiers.

There are a lot of rumors going for a female NVA based on the Nurse torso. We all know the real intent of this KS is to get those O13 Joe bucks in the MTF library, so I dunno how deep they'll get into the NVA forces. I'm not expecting more than one figure of each gender, really. I very much doubt we'd get any ChiComs.

I might need to back the KS for just this figure as a tribute to my father & place it amongst all his Navy/Seabee stuff. It would go great with his fatigues and hat I have shadow boxed.
