We got a wonderful surprise this week when we arrived back in the studio after a short Christmas break, and we wanted to share it with all of you as soon as possible! The test shots for Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay have arrived!!

We’ve been in the toy industry for a long while now, and we’ve received MANY groups of first samples from the tooling and manufacturing factories over the years, and we have to say that this set is by far the BEST first pass on a wave of figures that we’ve been involved with that we’ve EVER seen!! Obviously since these are the very first passes of plastic through the steel molds, there are still some issues to work out here and there until we consider these finalized, but if they keep this kind of quality up throughout the production of the Advent of Decay wave, then these figures are going to be absolutely phenomenal!

Here is a group shot of all of the characters from Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay together, but over the next few weeks keep your eyes peeled for more posed shots of these guys with their accessories.


To see full color paint-master shots of all of these characters with their weapons, be sure follow four_horsemen_studios on Instagram, or just pop on over to Store Horsemen to check out our new Mythic Archive section!

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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, 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.
