Ahh Eagle Force, been curious about those figures.

I took a cue from one of your posts and picked up a few Joy Toy dios. Really like em! Though one of my sets is missing a ladder rung.

Got my Space Force figures from the Kickstarter. Decent figures, on par with the recent Eagle Force figures.
I think the inclusion of some of the heads was stupid (though the heads are generally well done), and almost turned me off entirely from backing, but I'm a sucker for bubble helmets.

Just got my Space Force figures in too... thinking of ordering another Fortnite Wildcard set off amazon on payday. These heads fit well on the Fortnite figures, so I am transfering the heads over to those bodies now. Even though I of course have my preferences on who I like and don't like in the head pack, I do think they look fun on the figures. It is nice to get some nice looking president heads, hoping we can get more someday.

Watch out for that stogie in Arnie's mouth. I bent mine almost to snapping off before fixing with a spot of glue.

I've been meaning to get more into Annex 2179. The Ignes Fatui are interesting. Worst case they'll just be really smol guys in a Cosmic Legions display. Space gremlins.

Has anybody tried the Acid Rain Gugees? On the expensive side but also flexible as far as scale. Mount for 1:18, livestock for 1:12.

I too have the Ignis trio on PO. I've been appreciating 'dwarf' figures with full artic quite a bit the past few years and these guys look cool. I see them as scifi BatMite/Mxyzptlk types.

PASS on the Gugees entirely as I just don't see much appeal in giant capybara cows.

BUT, the Anubis and Rakshasa reveals are where the real business is at.

I have them POed in the reverse ratios they show them in, and will be using the 2 Anubises as Jaffa guards to my custom Stargate Anubis System Lord. No idea what I'll do with the one Rakshasa but it's too damned cool to pass up.

Yeah, Anubis is pretty nice.

I like the idea of robot bouncers but I also like the idea of the cyan and red Rakshasa halves as separate entities. But it really does feel like the kind of impractical monstrosity somebody with way too much money would invent. So it's kind of perfect?
