We just wanted to give everyone a quick update on what’s going on with Mythic Legions over the next couple of months. Although these are all of the currently laid out plans, all of these are subject to change, and we’ll release updates as that happens…
RIGHT NOW: We’re currently in the process of taking care of all of the outstanding customer service issues, and we hope to have them all wrapped up within the next week.
UP NEXT: Shipping will begin on all of the sales from the most recent Store Horsemen sale that started Monday evening. There were a lot of orders, but we shouldn’t have any problem with getting everything shipped out within a couple of weeks after it all begins shipping.
NOVEMBER/DECEMBER/JANUARY: Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadow, Mythic Legions All-Stars 1.0, and the Mythic Legions: Trolls should all be shipping from our overseas factory to our New Jersey warehouse any day now. We’re expecting the shipment of these items to arrive at the docks here in the US just after Christmas. We’re not certain, but we’re assuming that probably means that the shipment won’t actually arrive here at our warehouse until early January. As soon as they do arrive, we’ll begin shipping all of the pre-orders out to customers. Once the pre-orders have all shipped, we might do an immediate sale of all of the left-over items, or we might wait until sometime after the upcoming Kickstarter (mentioned below). We’ll keep you posted on that as well. If we do have a sale on those leftover items, we’re thinking that the first 24 hours will have limitations as to how many of each item you can purchase. After the first 24 hours though, it’ll be a free-for-all for anything still on Store Horsemen.
JANUARY: Mythic Legions Kickstarter 2.0! Need we say more? At this point, no. No we don’t. Images and info coming soon though…
BEYOND JANUARY: A possible new pre-order for Mythic Legions 1.0, Mythic Legions 1.5, and Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadow. It’ll definitely happen. It’s just a question of when and how at this point… Oh, and another non-Mythic Legions related line that you’ve seen before in a different scale. Yeah… you’re curious… Details soon…
THE ART OF MYTHIC LEGIONS, BOOK ONE: Still chugging away on this one. The delays have been like a soap opera, but all have been legitimate. They’re close to being done on the colors on what was at one time going to be an alternate cover, but will now be a beautiful mini-poster done by Danny Cruz and Nathan Baertsch that comes with every book. We’ll post images of that really soon, as well as the shipping dates of the book once we have something more concrete. It’s coming. We promise!
Before anything else, we wanted to thank everyone who participated in the Store Horsemen re-launched sale yesterday. We know what a pain in the butt these kinds of sales can be and we really do appreciate you taking the time out of your busy lives to show us that kind of support. Thank you.
As many of you might have guessed, we were completely overwhelmed by the ferocity in which the orders rolled in. We sat and stared at the screen for over a minute after the sale officially started and nothing seemed to be happening. Then suddenly wave after wave of orders (for some odd reason 23 at a time) started flowing like a river through our inbox. We’ve done a lot of sales over the years and that’s the first time we’ve seen anything like that. It’s an understatement to say that we were stunned. Within the first ten minutes of the sale, the majority of the merchandise we’d had up for sale was already sold out, the store was slowed down for some (but at least not completely crashed like last time), and some customers were even apparently cart-jacked as they were attempting to check out.
On one hand, we’re tremendously elated that the popularity of Mythic Legions seems to just keep growing exponentially with each release. But on the other hand, we were very upset to find out that many of our fans and customers weren’t able to get their hands on the figures they really wanted. We’re action figure fans ourselves, and we want the toys that we make to get into as many hands of those that want them as possible. We realized after Friday’s catastrophe and after last night’s successful, albeit somewhat frustrating sale, that we have to do something about that.
Because of all of this, we’re going to look into doing another pre-order in 2017 for Mythic Legions 1.0, Mythic Legions 1.5, and Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadows. It’ll have to be the kind of pre-order where if a certain amount of an individual character doesn’t meet a certain minimum number, then he won’t be produced, and the ones that meet the minimum number of pre-orders (whatever that may be at the time) will be produced. But we’ll nail all of that down as we get closer to the date of this pre-order happening.
Between now and then, the Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadow, the Mythic Legions: All-Stars 1.0, and the Mythic Legions: Trolls will all be arriving and shipping out to all of those who pre-ordered them. And then in January we’ll be launching the Mythic Legions 2.0 Kickstarter. Sometime after that is when we’ll do the new pre-order for the Mythic Legions waves 1.0, 1.5 & Covenant of Shadow.
We’ll obviously keep you update about this, but we wanted all of you who think that your only option to getting your hands on some of those guys is now eBay to know that that’s not really the case. You’ll just have to wait a little longer. But if you ask anyone who has those figures, I’m sure they’ll tell you that the wait will be well worth it.
Thanks again! Mythic Legions fans are the BEST!!
In just about an hour from now at 9:oopm Eastern Standard Time, Mythic Legions 1.5, Eathyron’s Dozen, Eagalus, the Avian All-Stars, and lots more all go on sale at Store Horsemen.
Even if all of you rabid hordes stomp down the gates and slow Store Horsemen to a chug, don’t give up! This time – No closing the sale down until everything’s gone. No rescheduling. No cancellations of pending or completed orders after the sale starts. Just a knock down, drag out, tooth and nail fight to the finish and may the best man (or woman) win!
Good luck everyone! We’ll be right here alongside you, trying to brace the walls of the HorseFortress for the invasion!
Just a reminder that the Store Horsemen sale will re-launch tonight at 9pm EST.
This sale will include figures from the Mythic Legions 1.5 wave, the Eathyron’s Dozen wave, the Avian All-Stars wave, and much more! Be sure to take a look at the front page of Store Horsemen to get a look at everything that’ll be up for sale tonight.
A FEW THINGS TO BE AWARE OF…
1) The sale will begin at 9pm EST. We’ll be making the items that will be on sale live before the sale actually starts so we can test the system to try to make sure it’s not going to crash again. Please don’t place any Store Horsemen orders for these new items before 9pm EST or your order will be cancelled and your credit card authorization will be voided. Only orders that come in AFTER 9pm EST will be accepted to keep things fair for everyone.
2) Multiple Store Horsemen orders can not be combined for shipping. If you place more than one order, they’ll be shipped separately in order to avoid issues and to facilitate shipping speed when the items are shipped out to customers.
3) Payment for your order will be collected at the time of the order or soon thereafter.
4) Shipping of the items from this sale will probably begin sometime late this week or early next week. We are making sure that all of our outstanding customer service issues are taken care of before the sale items ship out.
We’ll see you tonight! Take a couple of Xanax and good luck!
Since we’ve announced that we’re rescheduling the Store Horsemen sale for this coming Monday (Nov. 14th), a LOT of people have been requesting that we make it later than 3pm EST, and we completely understand why, and we want these figures to be available to as many people as possible.
Because of this, the re-launched Store Horsemen sales will now begin at 9pm EST.
We’ll be making all of the items live in order to test the operation of the store a few hours before that, so please be aware that any orders placed before 9pm EST will be cancelled and deleted without notification.
We’ll post a reminder about the sale re-launch on Monday as well.
Alright, we spoke to 3D Cart Stores, and they said the problem with us uploading the sale items and with customers being able to navigate the store and purchase items was with a faulty server, which crashed from the suddenly heavy traffic. They’re moving our online store over the weekend to a new and more powerful server which should be able to handle the traffic.
We’re going to delete all of currently unprocessed orders through Store Horsemen and any orders that finally made it through the system will be deleted (you will receive emails about this if your order went through), and the credit card authorizations for those orders will be nullified so that you’re not charged (no credit cards are actually charged until we manually process them).
Then, this coming Monday, November 14th at 3pm EST everything is going back up for sale on Store Horsemen once again – hopefully with no more crazy glitches.
We know this is a frustrating and inconvenient way to do things, but we had no idea this kind of issue was going to arise, because it went completely smoothly during the Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadow pre-orders. Hopefully we’ll avoid this kind of catastrophe again by getting moved to a more powerful server.
We really do want to get these figures into the hands of people that want them. We promise! All of this confounded technology just keeps getting in our way! 🙂 Thanks once again for your patience, understanding and support. We really appreciate it.
It’s with MUCH disappointment that we have to postpone the Store Horsemen sale that was supposed to happen today at 3pm EST today, and we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused all of you.
Our issues started when the online store wouldn’t let us update everything on Store Horsemen as “for sale” all at once, and we had to start updating items individually. That immediately slowed to a crawl and we had to refresh three or four times just to move on to the next figure.
Then we learned that customers were able to – after much frustration – get their items into their online carts, but they couldn’t purchase them! WTF?!?
When we contacted the server for Store Horsemen – 3D Cart Stores – the gentleman on the other end of the phone said he didn’t think it looked like a bandwidth issue, but it was instead something wrong with the site itself that he couldn’t help us with, so he’d have to escalate our claim and “open up a ticket” about it. Whatever that means…. A few minutes later we got the following email from 3D Cart Stores…
“Your ticket has been received by the 3dcart Team! An email notification will be sent when we reply to your ticket, usually within 4 – 6 hours.”
The one thing that we did find out is that because of this and until we can figure out what the shopping cart issue is, we’re going to have to empty all of the online shopping carts and start from scratch. So, it’s just going to be best to cancel the sale for today, and postpone it until we get the issue resolved.
We’ll post here again, every time we have an update about the resolution of the problem, and once we know something more concrete, we’ll make an announcement about when the sale will go live again. Between now and the moment the sale goes live, all orders will be cancelled without notice, and will not be charged for.
Thanks to all of you for your support and understanding. We promise that we’re just as disappointed about this turn of events as you all are, but hopefully we can get it fixed quickly and cleanly.
Just a reminder that Mythic Legions 1.5 (minus the Trolls which will be shipping and going back up for sale at a later date), Eathyron’s Dozen, the Avian All-Stars and Eagalus, as well as lots of other related items and accessories will be going back up for sale on Store Horsemen at 3pm EST today (Nov. 11th)!
You can see most of the items that will be going up for sale on the front page of Store Horsemen right now, but more items will be added between now and the beginning of the sale.
A word of warning… all of the items listed for sale are limited and some of them are VERY limited (especially the Mythic Legions 1.0 items), so they will sell out, and some of them will sell out QUICKLY. Please be there early to place your order to make sure you get the items you want.
Last, for those of you that have current outstanding customer service issues, don’t worry. We’re keeping extra stock unhand in order to take care of any issues that need to be dealt with, and we’ll try our best to get those all resolved before the items from today’s sale begin to ship.
Good luck, and Godspeed! Your legions await…
