Tonight (or tomorrow, depending on whether you’re a night owl or not…) Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadow goes up for pre-order on Store Horsemen! The pre-order is going to begin earlier than we’d originally planned because we’ll be at the San Diego Comic Con at the time we’d originally planned to put it up live, and we’re just afraid that their screwy wifi will mess with our launch. It’s a pre-order so you don’t have to rush right in there and get yours right at the launch time of Tuesday at 12:01am EST, but if you do, you might just have the bragging rights of being able to scream out your bedroom wind at all of your neighbors, “FIRST!!!!”


Buuuuuuut, not only is Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadow going up for pre-order tonight at just after midnight, but we’re also launching Store Horsemen pre-orders for the Mythic Legions 1.0 All-Stars wave and since the production of the Mythic Legions Deluxe Trolls is moving along slower than expected, we’re putting those two big oafs back up for pre-order as well, and are adding those new pre-orders to the overall production run.

The Mythic Legions All-Stars consists of a half dozen of the most popular Mythic Legions characters from wave 1.0, and if this pre-order does well, there’s a pretty good possibility that we’ll do more of those 1.0 characters as part of future Mythic Legions All-Stars waves. Pop over to the Source Horsemen forums and let us know which Mythic Legions characters you’d like to see in future All-Stars waves!

So go chug a strong pot of coffee, put on some loud obnoxious music, and pop some toothpicks up under those eyelids to keep you awake until the Store Horsemen pre-order starts in a couple hours. The night is young and the party’s just getting started!

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.
