I like the thinking behind this concept. Really, I do. You don’t get to be my age and go through college and major life changes without multiple occasions of boxing action figures up, and usually coming away with at least a couple broken.

My only question is: why make them for Star Wars and GI Joe figures, two of the sturdiest lines there are? The figures that break most easily are McFarlanes, and mini-statues. THOSE need foam. And the larger scales are, of course, the final stretch goal in the Kickstarter.

Actually, when I saw the name “Action Figure Foam,” I was hoping for something out of a spray can that would fill all empty space and cushion everything. Make THAT a stretch goal and I’m in for sure.
