Amazing Heroes are ready for Action...Captain Action!

Fresh Monkey Fiction announces Amazing Heroes and adds Captain Action to its line up of retro inspired action figures

Los Angeles, CA. (April 9, 2014) – Fresh Monkey Fiction introduces Amazing Heroes, including Captain Action. Look for a Kickstarter campaign launch in Summer 2014. 
"Transported to a strange world by a mysterious villain from beyond the stars, Earth's most "Amazing Heroes" try to defend themselves from their fiercest enemies as they fight a hidden battle that could annihilate the universe."

Fresh Monkey Fiction is proud to announce Amazing Heroes, its first series of 4.5" retro style action figures. Series 1 will include Classic Heroes:

Black Terror – “Golden Age Crime Fighter” 
Golden Age Dare-Devil – “Avenging Hero” 
Stardust – “The Super Wizard”
Captain Action – “The Original Super Hero Action Figure”

Additional surprise characters will also be revealed in the coming weeks. 

"With The Amazing Heroes line we hope to invoke a bit of vintage nostalgia as we play homage to the mid '80s super hero toy lines that many of us grew up with," says Bill Murphy, Founder of Fresh Monkey Fiction. "Fresh Monkey Fiction is incredibly excited to be working alongside Captain Action Enterprises to bring one of our favorite characters, Captain Action, into this new scale." 

This will be the first time that many of these classic heroes have been released in an action figure format. "It's an action figure line created by fans for fans, and our hope is that fans of these classic characters will help make it a reality," says Murphy. 

Specifics about the Kickstarter campaign will be released early this summer.

Black Terror?! Stardust?!
I am severely tempted. I'll keep my eye out for the kickstarter!

Extremely cool

I'm guessing that "Hero of the Red Planet" is John Carter and "Enhanced Hero" is Doc Savage. If this works out, I'd love to see book-accurate Lensman figures.
