I really wanted to toss in some extra for some extra spud buckets, guns, and such, but the all-in was a $ stretch for me as it is.  I'll have to hope I can get some of the gun/loot packs once they make it to the online store in the next phase.  :-\

Thanks for the support guys!

The buckaroos and Boot Hill loot are our ways to get enough pieces for even the non-customizers to be able to cobble together a few figures from all your favorite media. 

There are some parts guys that will be selling head sculpts that match our neck ball (all our male figures have the exact same ball and post).   I think even one for that figure you are making.

Magnificent Seven was on cable last night... watched it and wanted these figures more than ever.

Pinched some pennies while watching Deadwood re-runs today (for more inspiration) and figured out a way to upgrade my pledge to the $800 "Gimme-Two-Steps" level, which includes 3x each of the ten basic figures from the all-in package.  That deal per figure just can't be beat in that package, especially adding in the bonus Vigilante figures, Buckaroo blanks, and gear packs.  I also had enough to add some extra $ to get the extra spuds and guns I wanted.

still a few hours left to pledge if you haven't already!!

How was Joe Con, Paul?  I'm anxious about the whole thing and what all will happen going forward! :)

Sounds like the backetkit is finally coming soon.  Been saving up some pennies...  I'm already into this line at the "Gimme-Two-Steps" level, but can't resist buying more beer mugs, barrels, weapons, and blanks.

I have so many customs I want to try out (Harrison Ford/Cowboys and Aliens; Man from Snowy River, etc).  Can't wait to see the backer kit! (And can't wait for Stagecoach and horses and series 2 too!) :)

Here's the Kickstarter Link again for those who have no idea what I'm talking about. :P

To anyone that was remotely interested in this line, you can now pre-order the start-up Wave 1 figures and accessory packs using THIS Backerkit Page.

And, yes - I know $28 is a lot for 4" scale figures but it's a very small company trying to get something very niche (4" super-articulated western figures) off the ground basically because of their love for that niche and nothing more.  Production runs will be very small and ALL of the profits are being poured into the development costs for wave 2 (and horses and potentially vehicles/playsets).   

If you love it, support it. If you know someone that might like it, please share the link with them.   Thanks!*

Want to add in an extra nod of endorsement here.

This line's shaping up to be pretty special.  This is the direction collecting has gone to the "adult" market, and you gotta pay to play, more or less, but if these companies are making AMAZING toys, it's worth it to me.  The Chicken Fried Toys Dime Novel Legends line is a labor of love by the line's creator/dreamer, and it shows in the details on these. 

Who here DIDN'T love cowboys and indians in one form or another?  Now you have a collector-focused action figure line for said boyhood daydreams. 

These lines being pushed BY like-minded collectors, is what it's all about to me.  Toys the way you want them...  I've been shunting an increasing chunk of my toy budget to this kind of stuff, and I'm never disappointed I did so.  Star Wars still gets some money from me, but these get a lot of my $ because they're just amazing, they're collector-focused and driven, and they're making well rounded amazing collections unto themselves.

I backed this kickstarter too, and will be picking up some extras with the pre-order.
