We’re already gearing up for the 2015 San Diego Comic Con and we wanted to make sure that we have some figures ready for the show, so we’re teaming up with our friends over at Action Figure Xpress (AFX)to make this happen!
The first figure will go on sale at 3pm EST and is a Store Horsemen & 2015 SDCC shared exclusive. It’s Nimituss, the Golden Eagle. Inspired by the traditional colors of the fatigues worn by the US Navy (since we’ll be right next door to the Naval Base in San Diego), this exclusive figure will be available for pre-order through Store Horsemen for shipping/delivery only. A small amount will be reserved for the 2015 San Diego Comic Con, but you must purchase and pick those up AT the convention. Not online. We hope to have these figures in stock well enough in advance of SDCC 2015 to ship them out to customers before the convention, but if not they’ll ship out immediately thereafter. The staff shown in the attached image is not the final color of the staff. The staff for this figure will be more of a gun-metal gray. The price for Nimituss, the Golden Eagle will be $35.00 each, plus shipping & handling. The pre-order will run from Monday, April 13th at 3:00pm EST to Monday, April 20th at 3:00pm EST. No limit on amount pre-ordered.
The second figure will go on sale at 3pm PST and is an Action Figure Xpress & 2015 SDCC shared exclusive. It’s Dark Mist Decimus Hrabban. Utilizing his ability to transform into a foggy, ethereal entity, Decimus can swiftly and stealthily stalk the catacombs of Gothitropolis without detection. This exclusive figure will be available for pre-order through AFX for both shipping/delivery AND for pick-up at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con. We hope to have these figures in stock well enough in advance of SDCC 2015 to ship them out to customers before the convention, but if not they’ll ship out immediately thereafter. The staff shown in the attached image is not the final color of the staff. We’re hoping to be able to make this staff in a clear gray to match the Dark Mist Decimus Hrabban figure, but if that’s not possible, it’ll be a solid gray color that will be as close to matching the gray of the figure as possible. The price for Dark Mist Decimus Hrabban will be $35.00 each, (plus shipping & handling for orders to be shipped). The pre-order will run from Monday, April 13th at 3:00pm PST to Monday, April 20th at 3:00pm PST. No limit on amount pre-ordered.
This coming Monday, April 13th at 3pm EST both Store Horsemen and Action Figure Xpress will begin pre-orders for their 2015 San Diego Comic Con exclusives! These pre-orders will run until Saturday, April 18th at 3pm.
Pricing and details about the sale will be posted on Monday before the pre-order begins, but until then here are a few images for you to drool over…
Earlier today we locked down all of the Mythic Legions Backerkit add-ons and orders. This means three things…
1) Your order has been locked down and you can no longer change the items in your order. This is done so that we can get the total production numbers ready and get those over to the factory ASAP so we can begin full production.
2) You can still change your shipping address between now and about a week or two before we begin shipping all of the rewards and add-ons. We’ll make an announcement just before we’re ready to lock the shipping addresses down.
3) Your account should now have been charged for all of the add-ons and orders you placed through Backerkit, and you should have received an email to the address you supplied through Kickstarter informing you that your account has either been charged, or that your account was for some reason declined. If you received a “declined” notice (it looks like there were 28 accounts declined), please check your account to make sure the necessary funds are available, and Backerkit will automatically try to re-charge your account periodically.
Thanks to all of you amazing Mythic Legions backers!! You’ve really helped to launch something that’s been a dream of ours for a while, and we can’t wait to see what the future brings for this fun little property!
p.s. Oh, and for those wondering, above and beyond the $452,528.00 that was raised through the Mythic Legions Kickstarter, there was another $86,684.00 worth of new add-ons sold through the Mythic Legions Backerkit! That’s a grand total so far of $539,212.00!! Wow!! We absolutely can’t thank all of you enough.
We sent out the invitation to the Kickstarter/Backerkit survey out almost two weeks ago, and there are still over 200 backers who haven’t yet filled out their information and submitted it.
Even if you’re not adding add-on items to your initial pledge, we’ll need you to fill out the survey so we’ll know for certain where you’d like your backer rewards shipped.
The Backerkitsurveys will be ending and will be locked down on April 10th, so you’ve only got a little over a week to get this taken care of. Please be sure not to let it slip your mind.
If you don’t think you ever received the invitation email containing the link to the Backerkit survey, please check your email’s spam folders to make sure it’s not there first, and if it’s not, please email us at MythicKickstarter@gmail.com ASAP with the subject line “PLEASE RE-SEND BACKERKIT” and we’ll re-send that back out to you immediately.
We were surprised to wake up this morning and find that ourMythic Legions Kickstarter campaign had gone past $300,000.00! Then we were even more surprised when very soon afterward it eclipsed the final tally of our previous Kickstarter with over a day and a half still to go! Wow! We cannot tell you all how grateful we are for all of the support. Thank you SO much!!
As we’re posting this, there are only 30 hours to go, so if you haven’t gotten on board with that amazing ALL-IN set, then now’s your chance to do it! Some of these characters, like Sir Valgard, will NEVER be sold anywhere else but through the Mythic Legions Kickstarter, and if you wait to buy any of these that might show up in Store Horsemen or some other retail outlet, they’re going to be more slightly expensive than the prices during our Mythic Legions Kickstarter campaign after the shipping and handling charges are calculated in.
Please continue to spread the word about the Mythic Legions Kickstarter, and once again, THANK YOU to everyone who’s helped out so far!!
If you’ve been following the FANtastic Exclusive voting on our Source Horsemen forums then you will know that there were some exciting and monumental battles in many of the rounds of voting for this guy. It’s been a lot of fun to watch from our end, and we wanted to thank all of the fans and backers involved in making the return of FANtastic Exclusive such a success during our Mythic Legions Kickstarter campaign.
We also wanted to give an extra special thanks to our friend EDcomics from the Source Horsemen forums for pretty much running the entire process for us. We couldn’t have done it without him. (He’s also responsible for the amazing paint master shown in this update!)
We just wrapped up the paints on our Mythic Legions: Deluxe Barbarian Legion Builder set,and we just couldn’t wait to share them with you! This fan inspired figure set includes multiple heads, weapons, armor, and accessories to help backers create their ultimate barbarian figure. Shown here are some shots showing a few of the many possibilities! It has been so much fun for us to see the mock-ups and concepts that you have come up with so far, and we can’t wait to see what you do with this set! To get yours as an add-on to your Mythic Legions Kickstarter pledge, just go to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fourhorsemen/mythic-legions-action-figures-by-four-horsemen-stu?ref=nav_search
Fans and backers of the Mythic Legions Kickstarter have been asking for it from the beginning and now it’s finally here! The Mythic Legions All-In!! This massive All-In package will include one of each available item and stretch goal in the Mythic Legions Kickstarter campaign, including the amazing Mythic Legions Art Book for one amazing price! This offer does not include the figure stands.
Silver Knight, Gold Knight, Bronze Dwarf, Silver Dwarf, Standard Skeleton, Golden Skeleton, Sir Gideon Heavensbrand, Gorgo Aetherblade, Thord Ironjaw, Skapular the Cryptbreaker, Sir Galeron, Orn Steelhide, Clavian, Atilla Leossyr, Sir Owain, Jorund Runeshaper, Tibius, Otho, Sir Ignatius, Bothar Shadowhorn, Carpathias, Attilus the Conquerer, Urkku, Vitus, Asterion, Azhar, Zazhar, the Kickstarter exclusive – Sir Valgard, Urzokk, Bog Goblin, Malleus, Orc Deluxe Legion Builder, Deluxe Barbarian Builder Set, the FANtastic Exclusive vote winner, Mythic Legions Art Book, Heroic Weapons Pack, Evil Weapons Pack, Weapons Pack 1, Weapons Pack 2, Weapons Pack 3 (if unlocked at $210,000.00), Weapons Pack 4 (if unlocked at $215,000.00)!
Available as both a pledge level and an add-on item, if we hit all of our stretch goals we’ve priced this All-In so that you’ll get two regular edition figures for free! The international All-In even gets an additional shipping break on this item!
We’ve also taken a long look at the International shipping costs for higher pledge amounts, and we’ve come up with a solution to getting some relief on those shipping costs. We’ve set two milestones at which point you can deduct a specified amount from your shipping costs:
For International pledges of $700 and above, deduct $50. For international pledges of $900 and above, deduct an additional $50 for a total of $100 in savings! The All-In level price takes these discounts into account, and even cuts shipping costs further!
