So they're thick enough and stable enough to stand on their own?

Yes and no.  They are pretty thick (about half an inch) and they stand up fine on their own, but without a backing or support, a little push will also easily knock them over.  They are one sided anyway, so you could either stack them up against a wall for support or double stack them to look like a finished wall from both sides.  If I don't have them up against a wall, I'll probably have some kind of paper weight to make sure they're a little more stable.  Here are a few quick unboxing pics...









Great packing job, so they came in really minty shape and they feel super sturdy and thick.  I put an LED flashlight behind the light-wall and it looks pretty cool if you can work that into your display.  The walls are a bit high for the 4" stuff standing by themselves, but that's probably the size you'd want for display shelves anyway.  The clip on pieces work really well and you get far more than you actually need.  They do not connect at a 90 degree angle, which is my only disappointment so far.  I'm guessing we'll see adapters for different configurations and stability in the near future.

Hmmm, I'd say yeah, kinda, but the company had double-sided tape to "stick" them down to a flat surface if that makes sense.

In CHEWIE's pic there you see those binder clips, which hold them together length-wise, but IMHO having a backer wall for them to be against too, is a huge help, as far as standing upright goes, or making a "corner" with them instead of a straight wall.

Right now though, double-side tape is the best sticky to the floor to keep them upright solution.

I'd again LOVE to see a floor done that they "clip" to.

The company is working on their own clip system too, to clip them together.

Mine are currently up on my customizing table and standing, and not falling down easily, but they can fall down if you bump them and they're not against a back wall to keep them propped up or taped to the surface.  I don't like the tape route, personally.

PM coming your way Paul, but wow, Wal-Mart?  Really?  Ugh.

Sorry on that man, but I like the other name better.  A little more mature tone to it.

Boy I hope that Missouri Train Robber happens. :P

You clip them and they kind of hold themselves up on a flat surface...  Many people are using a piece of glass painted black on one side for a shiny floor of sorts.  I'd like to see the guys at the company come up with a floor solution themselves, but floors mean more cost, so it's kind of a weighed decision ultimately.   If you had them on a shelf with a back to it, you can just set them up to cover the back...  That works ideally as well.

LOL. Not much to watch in the summer.

The Strain returns this weekend, I think. It's a better show. I mean, it's still chock full of stupid, but at least it has characters worth a damn.

More huge walls going up around the river. They want to get the Rivers of America and train back up and running by next year's summer.

Blech. Suicide Squad sucked. I'll take comic book absurdity in comic book movies as long as you're not trying to cram down some sort of gritty realism.

That movie was so dumb.

It is cool and worth seeing, a little bit, but you can't do bull**** realism with silly comic book conventions. Oh really? a bomb would solve the problems but bombs need weirdo family friendly villains. It was dumb. I liked it, but it was so dumb. Pick a horse and ride it.

It is now "Dime Novel Legends".... a little company named Wal Mart owns "Legends of the West"...

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1693604734243240/

I think we have the kinks worked out, the page is public now.  Kickstarter in just over 30 days.

We ended up with 15 figures in the First wave/series/run.

No "Missouri Train Robber" YET.... but he is on the drawing board.

If you post anywhere other than here, please share this.  We are running it pretty tight, but that means a pretty low number to make it a reality.   I've told JJ this, but truth be told, I'm not looking to make any $$ on this first wave(other than what I have put in), I want a line of Cowboy Action Figures, so basically if I can get enough people to buy a "Marshall", I can get my copy for free.
