Really cool stuff here.  Any female characters in the works?

They potentially have a "Prairie Wife" and a "School Marm" slotted into one of the upcoming waves.  Also, I think I saw something about a shopkeeper's wife/widow type figure too.

Lady Gunfighters/Cowgirls are probably further down the list it sounds like since anything they make has to be usable across 2 or more different figure types...

I think my bro may be going all in.  Depends what his car situation is by then but he and I are both excited about it.

I'm shocked if a "calamity jane" doesn't make wv2 list.  Shes well known etc.

Paul's put a lot of his heart and wallet into this already I think. I'm hopeful it's working out because I like to see good people succeed and Paul is as honest and genuine a guy as I've met in the hobby of collecting.  Not to kiss your ass too much Paul, but seriously I hope this works out man.

Plus I wanna buy Wild West toys. :)

Thanks Jeff and Jesse!

We are half funded after 2 days.  Here's hoping the next 40 days kill it. 

The Ranch Hand is me by the way.  I actually wear that "get up" when we go riding.

The Marshall is the same head with different hair.

It's awesome Paul, and I'm glad that the out-of-the-gate numbers are spiked like that.  I hope it keeps going along and gets fulfilled.  I'm really wanting this line to be a reality, as much for you as my own greed.  I know it's been a big deal for you to get this made, and I think it's the unique kind of thing collectors are looking for.  Like HACKS touched on something different and new, I think this line's exciting because it's a new world to explore/collect, not the same old same old.

My funds are kind of strapped due to a move but I can definitely get a $25 option in before the deadline. But which one...

Diddly, any of them are winners (except the ones with my headsculpt: Head Honcho, Trail Hand, Marshall and Yarna d'al' Gargan )...

As we unlock more there are some great ones too.   

And not to discourage participation, there will be leftovers on the yet unbuilt website for sale too.

Looks like you hit the goal, Paul - congrats!  Really hoping it pick up some steam now that it's hit the goal - would really like to see some of those stretch goals get unlocked...

Thanks JEFF!!

I think now that it is has gone from "Dream" to "Reality" it will get at least the first Figure unlocked.   

I'm hoping for more, but thrilled to this point for sure.

At least the first 7 will get done.   We may have to do a Wave 1.5 to get the first 15 (16 now with KP Trooper) out to the folks, but this was the biggest hurdle.   

And now I can actually work on the Horse without thinking it is a waste of time.

Wow yes congrats Paul!  I know it's been a concern of sorts and if anyone deserves some success on this it's you for pushing it for so long.  Way to go man!

OK, I finally scrimped up enough pennies over the past few weeks to go ALL-IN!  Changing up that all-in package to guarantee 10 figures plus the Badlands Vigilante was too temping to pass up. ;D

Really looking forward to these, Paul.  Also looking forward to re-arranging parts from Buckaroo #1 to custom up a certain fictional TV cowboy figure.  Wasted a ton of time as a kid making my little brother ride Tonto to my Ranger.

Also looking forward to seeing how I can re-arrange the parts to get me some Deadwood and/or Westworld figures too.  And, based on some of the comments I saw on the Facebook group, I've also started trying to track down extra Sam Elliot and Daniel Craig figures (Golden Compass) for potential customs too.  Harrison Ford heads, I seem to have lots of extras of those. (Cowboys and Aliens!)  :P
