A Four Horsemen Give A Ravens Update – The Birds are on the Boat!
October 15, 2014

This update on the Gothitropolis: Ravens figures was posted today across the 4HM social media accounts:


Unfortunately there was another small production hiccup that delayed shipping of the Gothitropolis: Ravens figures by another two weeks, but everything is back on track now and they’ve been shipped from the factory and are on their way across the ocean to our warehouse in New Jersey as we’re posting this update. The issue seems like a small one but it was one that couldn’t be quickly taken care of. The capes for the Eagalus figure had been assembled backwards and were inside out. Since the clasp has to be glued into place, all of those capes had to be re-done.


BUT the good news is that, barring any issues with the shipment overseas or with US customs, we should have them here in a few short weeks and we should be able to begin shipping out to all of our Kickstarter backers immediately.

Today and over the next few days we’re going to post updates with shipping and production pics that we thought you all might like to see. Thanks once again for all of your patience. You’ve all been so wonderful and supportive to us through all of this and we really appreciate it. The end is nigh!


Just click here if you want to see pics of the shipment and some of the production pics today and over the next few days:https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fourhorsemen/gothitropolis-raven-action-figure-by-four-horsemen/posts/1018346

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
