Does anyone have any information regarding the release dates for these figures?

Will it be this year, or the first or second quarter of next year?

Seconded!
The only Conan I got is one I had to cobble together with original and repro parts.

I just hope we well get Red Sonja in a future wave.

I hope the line does well enough so that we even get a future wave.

I will admit I was surprised when I saw they were going to release Solomon Kane. I have the Euro-released movie and his comic books and I cannot wait to add the figure to my Marvel wall (since he was in Marvel Comics).

I have my complete all original Mego Conan. I remember a couple years ago someone here posted pics of his Conan, transferred to a Zica body, (when the Zica body was brand new). I remember it looking really cool, but I wasn't willing to take the head off my figure to use a different body. But with this new Figures Toy Company one, I'm going to take some time to really have fun and customize with the couple muscular Zica bodies that I have unused in my collection....

Agreed. That is some fine art.

I have one I got from benbarb on eBay, and I'm 99% sure the accessories are repro. At the time I didn't, but I was n00bish in the ways of eBay descriptions. Now I wish I had waited, instead of dropping that much on one only partially original, but who could've seen this happening?

Big John Buscema. I think it's from an early issue of Savage Sword.

Looks like it might be Alfredo Alcala inks or finishes over Buscema pencils. They were a great team on Conan, especially the black and white books.


I like the looks of these cards more than the batman ones, but they could look much better.

Yeah, that's one of the problems with the Benbarb listings.
They can be a little misleading at times, although lately them seem to have gotten better about identifying whats repro on their figures.
They do sell quite a few of those on a consistant basis, I'll give them that.

My Conan I consider to be a custom since he's assembled on one of the original Zica bodies, like one of our museum members did awhile back.
I really like that 'beefier' look. Even fashioned a custom card to display him on.

Good eye! I looked it up, and it was the splash page for SSoC, # 5, "A Witch Shall be Born" and the art credit is to John Buscema and The Tribe. I think Alcala was connected to the Tribe somehow, despite fellow Filipino Tony DeZuniga running it; yet, this (http://comics.ha.com/c/item.zx?saleNo=7013&lotIdNo=119084) suggests it was DeZuniga, himself. Whatever the case, it was definitely a Filipino inker--you can tell by the painterly quality of the inks.

Is there going to be a confirmed released date and preorders for Conan soon? Really looking forward to this one.

FTC could nicely expand the line with variant King Conan, & foes Thulsa Doom, Thoth-Amon, and perhaps the Fishhawk,

I believe their FB page said mid-2014.
