The Four Horsemen's Ravens Kickstarter project has skyrocketed beyond the $200,000 mark, and it doesn't seem to be slowing down with five days to go. The team just revealed an amazing new accessory for the patriotic Screaming Eagle figure, and it simultaneously became the coolest figure in the line.
There were 12 Raven variants planned in the original Kickstarter project. The Four Horsemen have since revealed the Screming Eagle and the Flamingo, two crazy and awesome additions to the lineup that undoubtedly lured in a few more collectors. But the ante was just upped again thanks to the project's latest update. Keep reading to discover the Screming Eagle with his unbelievably cool new American flag cape.
IMAGES FOR POSSIBLE CAPE FOR SCREAMING EAGLE!!
'Merrrca!! That's what the Screaming Eagle is screaming in these photos. Pictured in the photos below is the American flag cape that we're going to try to include free of charge with every Screaming Eagle figure purchased. Whether we're able to do this or not will depend on two factors... First, the cost. If the darned thing's too expensive to produce then we won't be able to do it. It's as simple as that. Second, quality. If the factory can't create or source out an American flag that can be utilized as a cape and still look good at the 6 inch scale, then we don't want to do it. We'd hate to just dive into production one them just to have them come out looking like crap. Fingers crossed... Twice.
The Screaming Eagle was already a powerful looking patriotic figure, but this potential accessory makes him even more impressive. I'm a glutton for patriotism, and this figure takes it to an awesome new level. The flowing, tattered banner draped over the beautiful bald eagle is a stunning sight to behold, and makes me wish the Four Horsemen could do other countries too. I'd love to see a Canadian Goose decked out in a maple leaf flag, or a Kiwi wearing the colors of New Zealand.
Some may find the ripped American flag a bit disgraceful, but this is probably the most patriotic figure ever produced, so I'll let that slide. I had originally pledged for the Cardinal to support my St. Louis citizenship, but I may be forced to add the Screaming Eagle to my pledge if this incredible cape is confirmed for release. I also wonder how the Gothitropolis universe fits into the continuity of real life, because this figure confirms we share a common timeline with the line and its characters. The Screaming Eagle must be defending the red, white, and blue in some distant apocalyptic future. I'd love to see that conundrum explained somewhere down the road.
Be sure to swing by the Gothitropolis Raven Action Figure by Four Horsemen Studios on Kickstarter to see this great figure and its brothers in arms, make a pledge, and support one of the coolest figures of the year so far.
