There has been a metric crap-ton of Four Horsemen news over the last week or so. Where to start? I guess I’ll start with Power-Con, since that’s just wrapped up. For those that don’t know, Power-Con is the Masters of the Universe / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Thundercats convention, run by many folks that […]
So, the Four Horsemen‘s Kickstarter campaign for their Gothitropolis Raven and its many variants closed at just over $300,000. As the Horsemen wrote in their note to backers, It’ll definitely be a jumping off point for the way we’ll promote and pre-sell our action figure lines in the future. We’re certain that others will feel […]
I find it interesting that the Four Horsemen are releasing a statement urging collectors to subscribe for established licenses like MOTU and DC Comics, while their own, highly transparent “thermometer” for a project featuring a homegrown license with absolutely no media backing it up has hit 300%. (Statement after the jump.) Maybe there’s a big difference […]
NoisyDvL5 from IAT does already did something like this, but while his statistical analysis is great, he didn’t really discuss the stuff that interested me. For example, the Minotaur the Duck variant is far and away the most popular figure after the regular Raven. I think this says something about this campaign.
AMERICA! GO AMERICA! AMERRRRRIIIICAAAAAAA! America is August 4th, right? Well, we’re still about $9K off from unlocking it, but the last of the Ravens figures – the secret one – has been revealed to be a Screaming Bald Eagle! In red, white, and blue colors! And yes, the Horsemen are thinking of giving him […]
The Four Horsemen’s long-awaited Kickstarter for the Gothitropolis Raven will begin this Friday at 12am. Obviously I’m on board with this project, what with my name and all. (I only wish we could get a variant head with a pair of red goggles on.) Details after the jump.
The Four Horsemen have opened a new website, SourceHorsemen.com. This is the third 4H website (after FantasticExclusive.com and Fourhoursemen.biz – and I can remember at least two iterations of the latter). Hopefully this one provides them with a long-term home. On a related note, you may have noticed in the pic on SourceHorsemen that the […]
The Outer Space Men line continues to chug along. The latest offering is the “Cosmic Creators” set of OSM waves 3 and 4, which were designed by OSM creator Mel Birnkrant. Fully compatible with Onell Design’s Glyos system, this is a limited-edition set available only through the official OSM site, theouterspacemen.com. The set sells for […]
Powerlordsreturn.com has an interview up with Wayne Barlowe, the artist and creator of Barlowe’s Guide to Extraterrestrials who also helped Revell develop the Power Lords toyline in the 1980s. It’s a great article with an amazing artist, and well worth the read. PLR EXCLUSIVE: Wayne Barlowe Interviewed About His Art, Toys & Creating The Power […]
At their annual Toypocalypse event on Saturday night, the Four Horsemen unveiled their new Power Lords prototypes. The figures are in a 3¾” scale and feature a mix of regular and Glyos-compatible joints. More photos over at Pixel-Dan.com. The event also featured an appearance by the original designer of the figures, science fiction and fantasy […]
