AmazoToys has announced a very interesting Kickstarter campaign featuring some American History iconic. They have revealed a new action figure line that brings American Presidents to and is ready for action. Each of these 4" figures will behave simple articulation of 14 points and will come with interchangeable heads. That's right you can get 2 Presidents for the price of one by just switching the heads. Backers can also expect Secret Service Agent heads also that will be included to give your collection extra protection. The campaign is set at $65,000 and will have more goals if it exceeds its goal price. So far there are 5 figures being offered as of right now:
- John F. Kennedy with Franklin D. Roosevelt and Secret Service Head
- Ronald Reagan with George H. W. Bush and Secret Service Head
- Barack Obama with two Secret Service Heads
- Richard Nixon with George W. Bush and Secret Service Head
- Dwight D. Eisenhower with General Wilson and General Nicholson heads
Each of these figures is quite simple and the head swap can give collectors multiple figures for the price of one. This series is dedicated to America History and it does that job but these seem more like novelty collectibles put I can see how they would fit nicely in someone's collection. They are all priced at $25 each and you can find the campaign located here. AmazoToys is only at $23,600+ of their $60,000 campaign with 27 days left. If the company hits their goal, more figures will be released and some of them are honestly must-haves with them expanding outside the realm of presidents and these upcoming figures will include:
- Uncle Sam with Bald Eagle Head
- Mark Twain with Colonel Sanders Head and Swappable Ties
- Jimmy Carter with Lyndon B. Johnson and Secret Service Head
- Abraham Lincoln with Edgar Allen Poe and Harry Houdini Heads
