Four Horsemen ‘Gothitropolis: Ravens’ Kickstarter Update for April
April 21, 2014

Yesterday the Four Horsemen posted a new update to fans and supporters of their Gothitropolis: Ravens Kickstarter campaign:


We’ve been asked numerous times for an exact release date on the Gothitropolis: Ravens action figures, and since we just got the nearly final version of the test shot into the studio, we thought we’d take this chance to address that question and show off some pics of us playing with the new test shot.

We are in the fine tuning process on the steel molds right now, and the next step is approving hand painted samples so that production can officially begin. We have been reluctant to give an exact ship date because we don’t feel that we have enough information to be that specific yet. Each step with the factory is an involved process that can take longer or shorter than we may initially plan for. With that being said, we are hoping for a mid to late June date, but we don’t want to commit to an exact date until the product is done and in transit from the factory. We will continue to give you updates at every step of the way, so that you continue to get a better idea of when they will be complete. As we’ve mentioned before, there are a lot of variables in the toy production process, but the ultimate goal is to make sure that the final product of top quality.

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 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,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
