I jsut went to the hacks shopify store and noticed they have quite a few things I want in stock, looks like I'll be placing an order!
Don't forget about https://vitruvianarmory.com/. They've become very helpful in my customizing and may be of use to you for older stuff.
Thanks a lot for the link, cool stuff there indeed!

I don't remember if they said, but you're right that it does kind of look like Meredith. Could be her. That would be neat. I think everyone at BFS should have their likeness on a figure. If I owned a toy company making my own unlicensed figures, that's like the FIRST thing I'd do because I'm an awful, selfish person.

More well known compared to when, though? The Asperity and Accord Knights only just sold out like.. two months ago. I doubt they're more well known among fantasy fans today than they were in January. Maybe in another year or two that might be true - but by that point they actually -might- decide to go back and do a 'best of' series to catch up new customers. Certainly in the realm of possibility and I'd be all for it, even though I don't personally need more of either figure.

We don't know. Fantasy isn't done yet - they've said there's at least one more full wave after the all-female wave and the .5 wave. Space is supposed to follow Fantasy, and Pirates after Space. But at the current rate that could put Pirates out until like 2024. That being said, I've seen BFS members make a few off-hand comments about running concurrent product, so it's possible we'll see some overlap instead of several solid years of just one specific Series.

Probably - among other places they may have gotten 'inspiration' from. But the 4H are worshiped by toy collectors so there's no use talking about it.

The asperity knight has been gone for a long time, it was gone most of last year.

You're absolutely right. I was thinking about the Accord knight, which only recently sold out. Got a little mixed up.

I'm really enjoying my JoyToy and Acid World, and would like to compare HACKS.

I was looking into the Amazons, but are there any other recommendations just to see the best of the line?

Damien, you're a fellow Canuck. Any good options besides their main site or is that the winner?

They end up being cheaper from BBTS due to the shipping cost.

That's tough right now because, in my opinion, most of the 'best' figures are sold out. But I -highly- recommend Zorro. He's probably the overall nicest figure Boss Fight has made that's still in stock, and easily in the top 5 overall. The Elf Ranger is also fantastic.

If you're looking for a good female figure, it's not out yet but I have a feeling the knight of order (female Knight of Accord) is going to turn out pretty amazing.

Overall, I tend to go with BossFightShop directly. BBTS is great if you have an existing POL, I suppose. Thing is, in my experience, BBTS and Boss Fight charge almost the same price for shipping (using a cheap USPS option), but Boss Fight gets my toys to me in like 2 weeks and a BBTS box, for some reason, takes over a damn month -- once or twice being as long as two months.

But those would be your only two decent choices. I tried to get Toy Snowman to carry BFS, but nothing seems to have come from that.

Love Toy Snowman for most things. So speedy.

Thanks for the recommendations. I'll may do BBTS for some of the older ones not on the official store, as I need some Acid Rain anyway.

Oh yeah - quick AND free shipping. They're great. Unfortunately, I never use them.
I don't blame -them-, but their business model doesn't work for me. Most stuff doesn't stay in stock very long, and when you combine that with them having very few lines they actually carry... there's almost never enough stuff available on their site at any one time that I actually want to get me up to free shipping. That's part of the reason I was hoping they'd start carrying Boss Fight stuff, but alas.




BFS did a livestream thing on Facebook to celebrate their 8 year anniversary. Some cool tidbits but not a lot of stuff we didn't already know. Blanks are selling really well and they will be bringing in new colors soon. They're going to be trying to key the release of blanks to similar-color carded figures to maximize factory output (and probably to manage costs as well). For example, we should see skin tone blanks to match Tarzan and Jane when Tarzan and Jane actually come out. So that's cool.

They're close to the point of having to re-order on some horses and that's the best time for them to also order new decos, so we should see at least one new horse deco (they weren't specific about what the deco might be or how many new ones there will be) in the near future.

Fantasy Wave 6 is still being tweaked at the factory, so it'll be still quite a bit of a wait for those to be in stock.

All the previously announced/hinted HACKS product (like Mermaids/Pirates and the Vitruvian Crew) ARE still coming.

There's internal talk about animals/monsters -- the way it sounded, and this is just my speculation, is that there's more than just talk and they've definitely got something in that regard already lined up.

Umbrella Academy is in the final tooling stage, if I remember correctly.

I think those were the major HACKS-related points.

Well I've picked up a few more of these since my last post, and I can say that I really love this line now! Such great details and options for this scale.

I've picked up these guys so far:

King Lance Steelblade
Orc Conquerer
Q'Al Varis Elven Ranger
Warrior Skeleton
Wandering Mage (black robe)
Black greek skeleton
Knight of Asperity (which I paid double SRP for on ebay *doh!)
Zoro w/Tornado
*plus a bunch of pre-orders at BBTS

Also grabbed some parts from the armory and a Knight of Accord Tack kit. My plan is to get a few horses and tack kits, and Im working on a custom sadle for a Jurassic World 1 1:18 dino to use as a mount for someone, not sure who yet - I have a fortnite medieval style figure sitting on it now and Im digging it! Thanks for the info you guys provided earlier, it definitely was helpful. Now if I could only find a Knight of Accord that isnt $100 lol

I know, I saw it right when they listed it and jumped on it quick! $100 is a no go zone for me on 1 1:18 figures, and so is $50 generally. But this guy just looks so badass, I have to have him.

Now I gotta get the Asperity tack kit and black horse....

Yep, there is. I have her pre-ordered at BBTS, nd tempted to add a second one.
