Recently in my article Action Figure Trends of the Future, I discussed how the future of action figures geared towards collectors would certainly involve smaller online exclusive lines created by enterprising collectors and fans. Richard T. Broadwater has worked on many different action figure lines (including Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Batman, and Star Trek), has served as Lead Artist and Designer for Bethesda Softworks on games like Elder Scrolls: Morrowing, Oblivion, and Fallout 3, and is now pitching through Kickstarter one of the greatest toyline ideas ever: Legendary Monsters!

|Seriously, this thing still terrifies the crap out of me.|
Jump on this if you're interested, as there are only 5 days to go! Richard has a variety of rewards available for funding the project, including simply pitching in a couple of dollars for some wallpaper, picking one of the figures listed, ordering a whole set in a variety of paint schemes, and even being able to obtain some of the prototypes! I pitched in for the set of four basic figures and hope these get made! They'll go great with a variety of action figure lines: G.I. Joe, Hellboy, X-Files, or even a general horror themed collection! Who doesn't like monsters? (Wimps, that's who!) Here's some more pictures and some cool concept art from the project to help you make up your mind!

|The figures are based off of various eyewitness accounts to these creatures- spooky!|
