MYTHIC LEGIONS FIGURES DEBUTING AT 2018 POWER-CON!! http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-figures-debuting-at-2018-power-con/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-figures-debuting-at-2018-power-con/#respond Thu, 19 Apr 2018 16:00:24 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=168610  

As we’ve done in the past, Four Horsemen Studios is partnering up with the most spectacular He-Man & She-Ra convention on the planet – Power-Con – to bring you two new Eternian inspired Mythic Legions figures, and if all of the stars align just right, they’ll be making their debut at the 2018 Power-Con (Aug. 25th & 26th in Los Angeles, CA)!

It’s going to be tight, but we’re going to try our hardest to have a very limited amount of these two figures, Cowarros and Malynna the Malevolent on hand and up for sale to Power-Con attendees months before they ship from Store Horsemen! Prototype images shown – final product may vary. More accessories for these to be revealed soon. If you want to see these two prototypes up close and in person, be sure to be at ToyConNJ this weekend! More info about that event coming later today

MYTHIC LEGIONS: ADVENT OF DECAY 2nd PRE-ORDER GOING STRONG! http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-advent-of-decay-2nd-pre-order-going-strong/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-advent-of-decay-2nd-pre-order-going-strong/#respond Wed, 18 Apr 2018 03:00:35 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=168500
The Mythic Legionnaires have come out in force once again, and sales for the 2nd pre-order for Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay are moving along at a staggering pace! We really appreciate everyone who’ve placed pre-orders so far, and for those of you who are still deciding on which characters you want, you now have less than nine days to do so, because this pre-order will be ending next Thursday, April 25th at 3pm EST.
Please keep in mind when placing your pre-order that the payment will be collected immediately or soon thereafter, and the figures from this pre-order won’t be shipping at the same time as the previously pre-ordered (through Kickstarter, Backerkit & Store Horsemen) Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay are being shipped. We don’t have a specific timeline yet, but we’re hoping this second wave of Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay will arrive in the Store Horsemen warehouse sometime in Fall/Winter 2018. We’ll post a more specific timeline once we have that info.

Behind the Scenes Look at the Making of Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/behind-the-scenes-look-at-the-making-of-mythic-legions-advent-of-decay/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/behind-the-scenes-look-at-the-making-of-mythic-legions-advent-of-decay/#respond Tue, 17 Apr 2018 17:00:18 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=168497 An amusing anecdote about the toy making process from the Four Horsemen:
So you’ve probably read that we’re VERY happy with the production work that’s been going on with Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay (also known as Mythic Legions 2.0), even though there have been some minor hiccups along the way – including the longer than usual tooling process – for the most part, the production process of Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay has really impressed us. And then something like this happens…
Don’t worry, it’s nothing really bad. Just kind of amusing how, even though you might have a very adept liaison between yourselves and the factory, the language barrier between us and our Chinese production factory sometimes yields these awesome little gems. We now present to you the results of us attempting to explain to the factory that we’d like to try to have  50% of the Hagnon figures from the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay wave to glow blue, and the other 50% of the Hagnon figures to glow green. This is the first sample they sent to our studio after that discussion – we’re calling him Halfnon…   😀

THEY’RE HEEEEERE!!!

 For those of you who haven’t yet received shipping notification, you should get that notification when your package is picked up and processed. Also, just so you’re aware, for those of you who ordered larger amounts of figures, your order will possibly ship out in two or more separate packages.

If all goes as planned, we’re hoping to have all of the pre-ordered Mythic Legions: Coliseum packages shipped out – both domestic & international – by the end of this week. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Power-Con 2018 toy exclusive reveal (1 of 3) – Spikor http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/power-con-2018-toy-exclusive-reveal-1-of-3-spikor/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/power-con-2018-toy-exclusive-reveal-1-of-3-spikor/#respond Wed, 28 Mar 2018 18:00:05 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=167485 Say hello to the first of three Power-Con 2018 toy exclusive reveals: Spikor from the Club Grayskull (Filmation) series!

Sculpted by the Four Horsemen and produced by Super7, Spikor goes up for pre-order (along with ticket pre-sales) on Saturday, April 7th at 9:00am Pacific / 12:00pm Eastern time!

We pushed the start date to Saturday to make initial ticket and exclusive pre-sales more convenient for most fans. The pre-orders for the toy exclusives will run until Sunday, May 13th. Ticket sales to the show will continue after that date. That gives everyone approximately one month to place their toy exclusive pre-orders. In order to move into production, we can’t extend the end date. All pre-orders are a pre-payment, in full like prior Power-Con events.

The three toy exclusives will all be featured separately on the standard Club Grayskull packaging. You can purchase individual figure releases for $50.00 each. But we will also offer a set of all three for $135.00 ($45.00 each); a 10% discount for the set of all three. We will also have one German distributor available for fans who are interested. Ordering through them will save money for German fans, and should also save money for most western European fans as well.

We’ll have more info as the pre-sale date draws closer! And please check back tomorrow for the next reveal.

MYTHIC LEGIONS WINGS ADAPTER CLARIFICATION http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-wings-adapter-clarification/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-wings-adapter-clarification/#respond Tue, 27 Mar 2018 14:00:39 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=167417 We just launched the second pre-order for Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay on Friday, and we’re really happy with the positive response the pre-order’s received so far. Many of you noticed that we’ve not only added newly tooled “bird”wings to the pre-order, but we’ve added the long out of stock skeletal wings as well. Both of these have been re-tooled so they now fit onto Mythic Legions figures, and they no longer fit the previously released Avian Warriors.

Also, these wings do fit into the holes that the pauldrons fit into, and we’ve created new adapters that will plug into the rectangular holes on Mythic Legions figure’s backs so characters can wear their wings and the cauldrons at the same time.

Here’s where it might get a little confusing, so bear with me. We’re referring to the torsos of the originally released Mythic Legions figures as 1.0, and the torsos that have been introduced with Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay as 2.0. We’re going to be referring to the previously released wings as A, and the newly created wings that are part of the current pre-order as B. We’ve created four wing different adapters that will solve all of your Mythic Legions problems…

1A:  This adapter will fit onto the torsos of Mythic Legions 1.0 characters, and will have adapter holes that the originally released A wings will fit into.

1B:   This adapter will fit onto the torsos of Mythic Legions 1.0 characters, and will have adapter holes that the new B wings in the current pre-order will fit into.

2A:  This adapter will fit onto the torsos of Mythic Legions 2.0 characters, and will have adapter holes that the originally released A wings will fit into.

2B:   This adapter will fit onto the torsos of Mythic Legions 2.0 characters, and will have adapter holes that the new B wings in the current pre-order will fit into.

SO, each newly released Mythic Legions figure from this point forward that utilizes the 1.0 torso will come with both 1A & 1B wing adapters. Each newly released Mythic Legions figure from this point forward that utilizes the 2.0 torso will come with both 2A & 2B wing adapters. Each newly released set of Mythic Legions wings of any type from this point forward will come with both 1B & 2B wing adapters.

Hopefully that all makes some kinda sense…

BIG MYTHIC LEGIONS UPDATE FOR MARCH 2018!! http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/big-mythic-legions-update-for-march-2018/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/big-mythic-legions-update-for-march-2018/#respond Fri, 23 Mar 2018 05:00:08 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=167231 This is a big one today. Mythic Legions news both good and not so good, but nothing terrible (knock on wood)….

Great news… As many of you know, Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay (minus the Kickstarter exclusive Sword Horsemen) goes back up for pre-order  at http://www.StoreHorsemen.com tomorrowFriday, March 23rd at 3pm EST. This pre-order will end on April 25th at 3pm EST. Please be aware that the figures from this pre-order will be shipping later than the currently pre-ordered Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay figures. You can go over to Store Horsemen right now to get a look at all of the characters that will be going up for pre-order, all of the accessories that each of them will be coming with, and you can finally read each of their bios!

Good news and bad news for Mythic Legions: Coliseum…  We’ve been informed by our shipping forwarder that Mythic Legions: Coliseum is almost here! The shipment has arrived at the US docks, but is being currently held up by customs inspections. If all goes as planned, we should have those in hand and begin shipping within the next couple weeks. Soon after we get all of those figures in and shipped out to all of our pre-order customers, we’ll be having an in-stock sale on all of the remaining Mythic Legions: Coliseum items.

Not great news for the currently being produced Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay wave though… We’re being very diligent in making sure all of the figures come out as good as humanly possible for the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay wave, and because of this shipping from the factory for this wave is going to take a little longer than we’d hoped. We were originally told by the factory that they’d be shipping from there to our warehouse in July, which would mean that we wouldn’t get them in our warehouse and begin the shipping process until sometime in August. We were able to push them a little and get that timeline shortened, and our hopes were to have the wave in stock and shipping in late Spring / early Summer. But because of some tooling issues that we’re making sure are corrected properly, our timeline on those figures has once again been pushed back to getting them in the warehouse in late Summer 2018. We know that sucks, and we’re as bummed out about it as you are, but we don’t want to release inferior product to those fans and supporters who’ve put their hard earned money and continued patience into this line for us. We’ll post more updates about this wave as things progress.

In the next few weeks, we’ll be posting an official timeline for Mythic Legions production and shipping that should make all of this a little easier to decipher.

Good news… You remember how we were saying we were going to try to get Hagnon to be a glow-in-the-dark figure if we could get it to have a nice glow, and still retain that almost hazy look to the plastic? Well we did it! It’s going to work, and the factory really come through for us on it. It’s currently just a green glow on the figure, but we’re going to try to get the factory to do a blue glow version as well – if we can get the same sort of look when it’s not glowing. Fingers crossed…

And finally, a sneak peek at one of the six Mythic Legions exclusives that are going to be shared between Store Horsemen and various smaller conventions later this year! News about those coming soon!

MYTHIC LEGIONS: ADVENT OF DECAY 2nd PRE-ORDER!! http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-advent-of-decay-2nd-pre-order/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-advent-of-decay-2nd-pre-order/#respond Sat, 10 Mar 2018 13:00:05 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=166762 Since the end of our Kickstarter campaign and Store Horsemen pre-order for Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay, fans of Mythic Legions both old and new have been asking us to do a second pre-order. Well, that time is almost here…

Beginning Friday, March 23rd at 3pm EST US, the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay wave (minus the Kickstarter exclusive Sword Horsemen) will go back up for pre-order at http://www.StoreHorsemen.com, and will end on April 25th at 3pm EST US.

All 43 characters from the wave will be available, as well as Legion Builder sets of six, an All-In set, restructured bird wings specifically created to fit Mythic Legions, and the various Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay weapons packs!

The figures from this pre-order won’t be shipping at the same time that the previously pre-ordered Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay are being shipped. We don’t have a specific timeline yet, but we’re hoping these will arrive in the Store Horsemen warehouse sometime in Fall/Winter 2018. We’ll post a more specific timeline once we have that info.

So, if you missed out on the Kickstarter or the Store Horsemen pre-order for this wave, prepare yourself… The Advent of Decay is returning…

Mythic Legions 2 Action Figures by Four Horsemen Studios by FOUR HORSEMEN STUDIOS http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-2-action-figures-by-four-horsemen-studios-by-four-horsemen-studios/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-2-action-figures-by-four-horsemen-studios-by-four-horsemen-studios/#respond Fri, 23 Feb 2018 14:00:42 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=166150 Production is now going very smoothly on our Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay wave, and if you’ve been following us on Instagram (and why would you not?!?) at four_horsemen_studios, you’ve been seeing regularly updated images of the test shots and paint samples the factory has sent to us. We just received a huge box of paint samples from the wave on Monday, so keep your eyes peeled for images of those in the very near future.

As with the first round of Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay test shots we received, even though there are some tweaks to be made here and there, for the most part, this is the best first pass at paint samples that we’ve ever seen from any factory in all of our years in the toy industry. They nailed almost every nuance we threw at them and if they can make the tweaks easily and adhere to this level of artistry throughout the full production of the wave, these figures are going to be phenomenal! We absolutely cannot wait to get these things into the hands of Mythic Legions fans and customers!

As we reported back in October, this wave has been delayed a little longer than we’d have liked, but we’re being told that the factory is still trying to find ways to bump our ship date from the factory up so the wave can be shipping to our warehouse by late Spring/Summer 2018 without cutting corners. So we still don’t have a solid date for you on when these will be shipping to us from the factory, but we should know something more solid, once they’ve made all of the necessary adjustments to the tooling & paints, and as soon as we have that information, we’ll let you all know.

We are still planning to have another Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay pre-order, but we aren’t yet certain of the date. We’re currently working with the factory to see if we should wait until a later date than we’d originally planned to do that pre-order for fear of delaying the current production process even more. Again, once we have a more concrete answer on that, we’ll be sure to let you all know.

On a side note… Various Mythic Legions shared exclusives (meaning they’ll be available for pre-order through Store Horsemen as well) with multiple 2018 conventions being worked on right now! More news about those soon. 🙂

Mythic Legions All-Stars 2 Extended until Monday 2/12 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-all-stars-2-extended-until-monday-2-12/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-all-stars-2-extended-until-monday-2-12/#respond Sun, 11 Feb 2018 09:28:47 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=165380 PRE-ORDER EXTENDED!!

We’ve suddenly gotten such a large amount of requests to at least extend the Mythic Legions: All-Stars 2.0 pre-orders by a couple of days, that we’re going to wait to close the Store Horsemen pre-orders until Monday, February 12th at 3pm EST US.

The pre-order will be IMMEDIATELY shut down at that point so we can calculate the final production numbers and get those over to the factory as quickly as possible in hopes of speeding up the production process just a little.

Chinese New Year begins February 16th. The Chinese factories all shut down potentially for weeks after that date, and we need to make sure we have our order in to the factory before that happens, or it could delay our production time on the Mythic Legions: All-Stars wave by weeks more than it would normally take.

Even though you’ve now got until this coming Monday afternoon to get in there and build your own personal legion of mythic proportions, we wouldn’t want you to forget between now and then, so we’ll send out another reminder early Monday morning. To pre-order your Mythic Legions: All-Stars 2.0 figures, just go to http://www.StoreHorsemen.com

MYTHIC LEGIONS; ALL-STARS 2.0 PRE-ORDER ENDING SOON! http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-all-stars-2-0-pre-order-ending-soon/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/mythic-legions-all-stars-2-0-pre-order-ending-soon/#comments Thu, 08 Feb 2018 14:00:06 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=165263 For those of you who haven’t yet placed your pre-orders for Mythic Legions: All-Stars 2.0 yet (and for those of you who want to pre-order more), you only have until this coming Friday, February 9th at 3pm EST US.

Pre-orders for this wave have been fantastic, and we’d love to be able to extend the pre-oder for a longer period of time, but we have to get the final numbers in to our factory ASAP so they can get started on production of these figures so we can get them out to you as quickly as possible.

We were hoping the Mythic Legions: All-Stars 2.0 wave would be shipping to us in late Summer 2018, but it’s possible that it may be as late as Fall/Winter 2018. We’ll know more once production begins, and we’ll update you as soon as we hear back from our factory on that.

Last, we’ve gotten notifications from some of our customers in Hawaii, Alaska & Puerto Rico that they’re having issues with our online store not allowing them to chose USPS Priority Mail as one of their shipping options. We’ve contacted the company that runs the website for our online store, and they’re as confused as we are as to why those options have disappeared for those customers. It doesn’t look like they’re going to get that issue repaired before the current pre-order for Mythic Legions All-Stars 2.0 ends, so just place your pre-order as you normally would and choose one of the shipping options available. Then email us about the problem, and we’ll manually look up shipping charges via USPS Priority Mail to your address, and issue you a refund of the difference in cost.

To place your pre-order for Mythic Legions: All-Stars 2.0, just go to StoreHorsemen.com
