Watch for news at Joe Con. 

Maybe even the front page here, if it is a slow news day.

In Star Wars, everything's a slow news day anymore.  Thus these smaller toy lines are the bee's knees. :)

Ok, there are so many more details that I will share later when Jesse does his exclusive interview, but long story short. 

I've started a western line, with the help of Boss Fight doing the Art, former industry pros doing the digital sculpts, I'm excited.  We are debuting it at Joe Con tomorrow.  But you guys get the scoop first.

This is really exciting news Paul!  I'm anxious to learn more.  The era  is ripe for cool action figures I think.  I'll be home next week and talk more then!

Oh man, those are awesome.  Definitely see myself picking some of those up.  The Marshall will be a nice add to my Mos Eisley cantina! :P

My brother says the Sharps Rifle having a popup site on it is giving GIJ fans a boner.

This is apparently getting a butt-ton of press though Paul, congrats.  Gonna whip up something here for us tonight/later tomorrow.

Our own coverage of this story is up and features some details.  Paul's shared quite a bit with us and it's incredible really.  This is the kind of line I can really get into, and I think a lot of other collectors can as well.  The customizability alone intrigues me on it actually.  A mix/match style for some basic swaps is pretty interesting and would lend itself well to allowing collectors to easily make their own character with minimal effort.

Wish more lines were like this, quite frankly.  It only takes some standardization.

Hoping I didn't miss a detail there.  Wanted the story to be up tonight once Paul sent me the information. :)

It's awesome Paul, and I really hope it works for you.  I know this is something you've wanted for a long time and this transcends being just a line you think could be successful.  It's also something near to you, and I know I plan to help out once the Kickstarter campaign is set up!
