Remember the fun of picking up a comic book and liking it so much you had to have the action figure? So do we! That's where GBJR Toys steps in! We are proud to present: Indie Spotlight - action figures from the comic book pages of old to new!

This project originated from the love of comic book characters and indy comics and their creators. Geoff Beckett Jr. of GBJR Toys was fortunate enough to obtain the rights, domains and ever popular toyline Indie Spotlight from another company who grew the line and with that deal has created an action figure body system that will improve and make action figure production faster and full of more choices per series. The Indie Spotlight line, when launched in 2006, was bold and well received as indicated by reviews online including their shining achievement: the Maxx action figure complete with Isz minis. The figures were also praised by collectors to be the first to feature re-sealable collector packaging. Over the course of several months, planning went into improving the existing action figure system that was created for the toyline Indie Spotlight. We wanted a system design that we could call our own and one that would rival even some of the best companies out there. Once that was completed, we took the line up for a full 3-series design and are now ready to put them into action figure form sure to please collectors and comic fans alike!

We have reached our original goal and will be using the $20,000 to produce a new run of the Series2 Indie Spotlight action figure line. We are now trying to reach our stretch goal of $25,000 to do an exclusive online campaign Maxx version for contributors who choose it as a reward as well as get us to San Diego Comic Con so we can offer limited exclusives before Series2 arrives. All of the Series2 and beyond figures that are sent as incentives will be marked as campaign exclusives as a special thank you to our generous contributors. We have already begun production.

The peviously released Series1 action figures consisted of characters (The Maxx, Kabuki, Katchoo, Shadowhawk and Scud) which can be found online in many reviews and available in limited numbers on Amazon.com, Hastings and Toys R Us.
