POWER LORDS PRE-ORDER BEGINS FRIDAY!!
September 6, 2017

This Friday, September 8th at 3pm eastern standard time, a new pre-order comes to Store Horsemen, but this time we’re doing things a little differently. We’ve been trying to find the right timing and method to re-launch the Power Lords four inch scaled action figure line with new levels of articulation and detail, and if you’re willing to go on this little journey with us, we think the time is NOW!

This pre-order will be very similar to all of our previous pre-orders, with one significant difference. We’re going to use something similar to the “crowd funding” method of pre-ordering that’s been successful for us in the past through Kickstarter, and we’ll have a certain number of orders per character that we’ll need to hit in order to make this work. If we don’t meet our goal in the time that we have the pre-order running, all of the pre-orders will be cancelled, and none of your payments will be processed. We’d then just have to step back and try to figure out another alternative strategy in order to get Power Lords action figures into your hands.

One of the things that’s happened in recent weeks is that the factory has come back to us with revised prices for tooling and production, and we were shocked to find that they’re roughly double what we were quoted to begin with. We’re still working things out with the factory to see what can be done to bring those prices down to a more reasonable level, so we probably won’t be posting the prices of the figures until the sale actually launches on Friday afternoon. Multiple factors figure in to decide what we need to charge per figure, and the production and tooling charges are the largest portion of that. That factor more than anything else will decide what the final prices for the Power Lords action figures will need to be, but you can be sure that we’ll do everything within our power to keep those prices as low as possible, no matter what the final outcome from our current factory negotiations.

And yes, there will be a specially priced All-In set.

As a bit of a preview, below are the various characters that we’re going to be offering for pre-order, along with descriptions of their articulation and accessories.

Daniel Pickett

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,
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.
