Little Falls, NJ (July 5, 2017) – Four Horsemen Studios is happy to once again announce the return of Power Lords to your action figure collections!

About Power Lords

Power Lords, The Extra-Terrestrial Warriors is a toy line from the early 80’s that just might be one of the most originally designed action figure lines of all time.

The appeal of the Power Lords can be traced back to its origins in 1982 when famed toy creators Ned Strongin and Len Mayem contacted legendary sci-fi and fantasy artist Wayne Douglas Barlowe and hired him to help create a toy line. Barlowe’s unique and sometime’s bizarre interpretations of alien life were some of the most memorable designs of the era.

The impressive original action figure line spanned 2 waves that included 10 figures as well as multiple creatures, vehicles and playsets. The line was reintroduced by Four Horsemen Studios as a 4” scale line in 2013.

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.
