Four Horsemen’s Queen and Her Court Roundup (Updated)

UPDATE: You can pre-order Biggara and Baddathiir here, Akkuli here, and Oktobria here. Will update with more pre-order links as they appear.

I’d booked a half-hour or so to put together a roundup of all the Four Horsemen’s various Queen figures announced in the past week, but FANtastic Exclusive user xrmc20 beat me to the punch and has very kindly allowed me to copy and paste his write-up here. So be sure thank him, not me–my only contribution was being lazy.

  • I am officially sick of cat-women. One or two, or even three, would have been fine, but six is overkill.

    Plus these particular ones kind of disturb me in that their bodies are clearly 100% hairless, sexy human bodies, and their heads are clearly 100% animal. Who are they targeted to? Furries?

    If you've ever seen Realm of the Claw's female figures, you've seen better done anthropomorphic cat-women. They look like a mid point between human and cat, and don't have the awkward "sexy" bodies that these do.

    It's doubly disappointing to me because the human females are so pretty. I would love to have had some more warrior women.

    I'll definitely get Allux and Isadora (she reminds me Shi-meets-Evil Lynn). I might pick up Kromius, but that's about it.

  • I have only mild interest in these, but if I did get them, I would want the whole set. The various online retailers getting their own exclusives is a neat idea, but in the long run it's just a pain if you want them all.

    Anyway, I'm waiting for the full set to be on the Four Horsemen's website. Thanks for the roundup, though.

  • So what ever happened to Lord Scarabus?

    The last three reveals felt more "Meh-y" to me.

    I completely agree on going overboard with the cats. I love the blue one but there doesn't seem to be enough of a visual difference for me.

  • I love Alluxandria but all of the others do lack something to varying degrees. I'm particularly bummed by the Red and Blue animal women… they just don't work for me. I would agree that one of the issues with the animal women is that the bodies are smooth/not furry. I can only imagine that the smooth arms are a forward thinking measure for future figures or perhaps even using DCUC molds, but they are simply very boring both on these figures and based on what has been done with 7th Kingdom before. I would have rather them do up furry arms for the animal women since they all use the same head/minimal tooling anyway. And it would allow for the Blackhairded human to have one or two furry arms, as though she had made a sleeve from the sin of a dead animal/woman.

    I also wish that the elemental was translucent or something more than 'just silver.'

  • The point about the smooth bodies on the cats is definitely a fair one (and the reason the detail-less paint job on Baddathiir looks a little odd to me) but clearly it's due to financial restrictions that require the parts reuse.

    It's not like the 4H can't or don't want to sculpt super-detailed fur.

    *coughcoughbeastmanxetheusmanbatcoughcough*

  • First time I saw these I was pretty psyched until I realized so many repaints were being used. Its like Transformers Universe syndrome on steroids.

  • I have the Realm of the Claw female figures and I like these better. I find the furry sexy body much more disturbing and less appealing than the smooth sexy body painted to look like it has smooth fur on it.

  • It is indeed overkill, and I agree that having each figure available at a different store just creates an unnecessary headache for the consumer.

    I have the cheetah chick from Realm of the Claw; she's nearly ten years old and looks newer and more exciting than most of those.

    Still, it'd be fantastic to have all of these on a shelf alongside the various other anthropomorphic toys the Horsemen have produced. They might look swell alongside MOTU Classics figures, too.

  • Realm of the Claw figures are too far removed from human forms to be sexy. Whereas the 4H figures still have the same shapely, human, hairless bodies as the humans.

    If someone finds these bodies sexy, they have a SERIOUS problem:

  • Waaaaaaay to many kitties for me. I've pre-ordered the blue one and I'm definitely picking up the humans at Con. I may pick up the other unique figures and maaaaaaaybe the bengal but pass on all the other cats.

  • It's lots of cats, and I'd have been OK with less, but I'll probably get them all.

    Baddathiir is one bad ass panther

  • i'm trying to decide whether naming the cats after their respective vendors if cute or cheesy

  • I'll pick up one or two of the cat chicks in decent colors probably. As cool as the 7th Kingdom stuff is, I found myself wondering why I ended up with so much of it after a while.

    I only need a hahndful of female characters in my MOTU-esque world display and I doubt I'm alone in that. Hope the Horsemen didn't screw up here.

    Of course the actual quality of the figure will make a big difference too.

  • And why do all the cat figures have the smooth fully exposed female body, whereas the actual human females don't?

    I would have bought a human female character with the same design as the cat ladies. Instead all the humans have armor all over their abs and arms. Seems like an odd choice.

  • I'm only planning to buy Alluxandra, Isadorra, and Kromius. (I really want cora, but they had to go and make her the CSC exclusive. Not doing business with them anymore, so I guess I won't be getting her.)

    I was planning to get two of the cats, and the blue one is the one I like the most. I was all set to preorder her, only to find that AFX charges $15.00 for UPS ground shipping for one figure in the continental US!!! I don't know how they can get away with that. Needless to say, I didn't place the order. That is simply ridiculous.

    Hopefully, I won't have any trouble getting the main three I want.

  • I updated the post with the pre-order links that are currently available. I'll update it with the rest as they appear.
