POST 2017 #SDCC MYTHIC LEGIONS UPDATE!!
July 27, 2017

We’re back in the studio from a week at the 2017 San Diego Comic Con, and we couldn’t be happier about all of the positive responses Mythic Legions got while we were there.

The biggest news was the reveal of two of the characters from what we’re referring to as the “Ogre scale” line of Mythic Legions figures. Standing about nine inches tall, these guys tower over the normal humanoid Mythic Legions characters, but aren’t quite as large as the Trolls. The first two we’ve revealed are a pair we’re currently calling the “Alpha Ogre” and the “Barbarian Berzerker”. These names will probably change before everything’s said and done, but we’ll post some official pics and more info for those two tomorrow.

Fans loved seeing the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay & Mythic Legions: Coliseum figures in person at our booth, and all of the responses were positive and enthusiastic. Rahmulus didn’t make it into the Comic Con box, and held down the fort here at the studio while we were away, but he was there in spirit.

Speaking of Mythic Legions: Coliseum, the pre-order for that wave is up now on Store Horsemen and rolling along well. We’ve got 6 piece sets for the Legion Builder figures and a specially priced All-In (War) set, so be sure to get over there and place your pre-order soon!

Up next? Well, lots of things. But right now, the only thing we’re going to mention is the upcoming All-Stars fan vote. We’re going to create a poll on SourceHorsemen.com after the pre-orders for Mythic Legions: Coliseum ends which will list all of the characters from Mythic Legions 1.0, Mythic Legions 1.5, and Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadow, and all you’ll have to do is go in there and choose your eight favorite characters. The eight most popular of those will become the next wave of Mythic Legions: All-Stars! More info on this as we get closer.

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.
