MYTHIC LEGIONS: ADVENT OF DECAY TEST SHOTS SALE TONIGHT!!

Tonight (Thursday, August 16th) at 9pm EST an extremely limited amount of Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay test shots are going to be going up for sale exclusively on StoreHorsemen.com. These incredibly rare pre-production figures will come poly-bagged and fully accessorized.

There are only ten pieces of each character available, so yes, it’s going to be a brutal battle to get the ones that you want, and we expect them to sell out extremely fast. BUT, we’ve gotten together with our online retail partner and they’ve not only installed a new program that will (hopefully) keep you from getting cart-jacked as you’re shopping, but we also have this sale set up so that you’ll only be able to purchase one of each character (in other words, you can purchase the whole wave if you’re fast enough, but you’ll only be able to get one Knubnik, one Artemyss, one Boarrior, etc. in that wave – not multiples of each character). This gives the greatest number of Mythic Legions fans the chance to get at least one of these highly sought after test shots before they’re sold out.

As we mentioned before, these will be a little higher priced than your normal Mythic Legions figure because of various factors. The regular figures and Legions Builder figures will all be priced at $50.00 each (plus shipping). Artemyss Silverchord and Gadriel will be priced at $55.00 each (plus shipping). The Deluxe Knight Builder 2 set will be $60.00 each (plus shipping).

Please be aware that these are pre-production test shots, and NOT the final product, so they may contain various flaws and production issues.

We’ll see you over at StoreHorsemen.com at 9pm, and good luck!!

TEST SHOT SALE POSTPONED!!

 

We posted recently that the sale for the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay test shots would begin tomorrow (Tuesday) evening. Unfortunately we had some severe flash flooding in our area over the weekend, and the Four Horsemen warehouse was one of the spots that was hit. Thankfully none of the product that’s currently in the warehouse was damaged, but there’s a lot of clean-up that needs to happen throughout the building before we can begin shipping new product. 

Because of this we’re going to back up the sale date of the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay test shots to Thursday, August 16th at 9pm EST, and we hope to begin shipping the following Monday.

TEST SHOTS!!!!!

As you might’ve heard, the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay wave of figures is finally going to ship from our factory this coming Friday, and in celebration of that wave beginning it’s long journey to our warehouse in New Jersey, we’re going to be selling super limited test shot versions of Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay!!

If you’ve never heard of a test shot, it’s a type of production prototype where the factory runs plastic through the molds of an action figure so the creator of the action figure can go over those unpainted versions of the figures and make sure that the quality of the articulation and sculpted detail is where they want it to be. The test shots often come in a varied number of colors, but we like our test shots to come in gray so we can see the detail better. When the factory runs test shots for a company, they normally only run around 5 of each character, but we had them run a few extra of each so we could offer them to you!

Yes, these test shots will be a little more expensive than the usual fully painted Mythic Legions figure, but the reason behind this is that we have to pay the factory extra for figures that weren’t part of the initial order, and we have them all air shipped to us so we can get them out to you weeks before you can get your hands on the final figures! You could be the very first in your neighborhood to hold a Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay Knubnik figure in your hands!!

Please be aware that when you place an order for the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay test shots, it is an “in stock” order and that order cannot be combined with any current Mythic Legions: Soul Spiller pre-order. Any orders placed containing product from both waves will be cancelled without notification.

The Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay test shots sale begins next Tuesday, August 14th at 9pm EST at StoreHorsemen.com

MYTHIC LEGIONS: ADVENT OF DECAY LEAVING FACTORY FRIDAY!!

We wanted to wait until we had an official and try final “shipping from the factory” date before we made another announcement, but we have that now, so here it is. Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay will be shipping from our factory this coming Friday, August 10th! Shipping from the factory to our warehouse usually takes about 4 to 6 weeks depending on ocean traffic and customs, so once we know when the shipment is about to hit the US docks, we’ll make another announcement about the shipping schedule from our warehouse to customers.

For those of you who backed the Kickstarter for this wave, participated in the Backerkit for this wave, and pre-ordered this wave through Store Horsemen during the first pre-order, we want to thank you SO MUCH not only for helping to keep this property chugging forward, but also for being so darned patient through all of the hiccups and delays that have lead up to this point. Just know that those delays are the result of nothing more than us and our factory wanting to bring to you the best product that we possibly can. Action figure production can never be flawless, but we do try our hardest to attain perfection, and if getting a quality product out to you means a little more of a delay than we’d normally like, then we’ll always take that route over getting bad product out to you on schedule.

As for the upcoming Mythic Legions: All-Stars 2.0 wave and the 2nd pre-order for Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay, the production on those is well underway, and we’re still on schedule to have those in stock and shipping in Winter 2018. The current pre-order for Mythic Legions: Soul Spiller happening on StoreHorsemen.com right now is planned for a spring 2019 release date.

Appearing on Facebook Live and other live social media outlets (more details coming soon) all day long, we’re going to have guests such as toy industry professionals, collectors, toy news personalities, action figure fans, figure customizers and more dropping in, chatting and hanging out with us and just having a great time here at Four Horsemen Studios, and you’ll get to be like a fly on the wall seeing and hearing all of it!

Okay… You’ve read this far and you’re still with us, so you must be kinda into this, right? If so, we need your help. The title “Four Horsemen Studios Online Convention” is just a working title, and we need an official name for this thing that’s a little more cool and catchy, kind of like “Source Horsemen” or “Store Horsemen” or “Four Horsemail“… You get the idea. So see if you can come up with something and jump on over to the Four Horsemen Studios message boards at SourceHorsemen.com to make your voice heard. If we pick your name, you’ll receive a free Mythic Legions: Sir Valgard figure, and a free Mythic Legions: Brontus the Arena Troll figure – BOTH signed by everyone here at Four Horsemen Studios!

LIVE FROM NEW JERSEY!! IT’S THE SAN DIEGO COMIC CON!!!

As you might have heard, Four Horsemen Toy Design will not be attending the 2018 San Diego Comic Con. But the Four Horsemen will be in attendance at the Mattel panel at the 2018 San Diego Comic Con… Kind of…

When the guys we work with over at Mattel heard that we weren’t gonna be at the convention this year, they contacted us about it to see what we could do in order to still be able to join them. Even though we’re not physically going to be there, Mattel is setting things up so that we can do a live video Skype call with them at their panel on Friday, July 20th from 12:30pm to 1:30pm PST!!

Obviously we’ll be discussing all things DC Multiverse related, and there will be LOTS of new reveals (we’ve been BUSY!), but we’re hoping that at the end of it all we’ll also have plenty of time for a good Q&A session, so be sure to get your questions together soon.

We’re gonna try to see if we can figure out a way to stream it live here as well, so keep your eyes peeled for that, although it may just be the Four Horsemen end of things that gets streamed live by us. We’ll see. This is gonna be a fun experiment.

So if you’re gonna be at SDCC this coming Friday, we’ll see you there!! Kind of…

MYTHIC LEGIONS: ADVENT OF DECAY UPDATE!!

 All of you who were involved with the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay Kickstarter campaignand first Store Horsemen pre-order have been VERY patient with the delays we’ve had during the production of this wave of figures, and we want to thank you for that. We’re toy collectors ourselves, so we know how exciting it can be to wait for a new release of figures, and then how disappointing it can be to hear that they’ve been delayed. Well, your long wait is almost over, Legionnaires!

 If you’ve been following our posts on the Four Horsemen Toy Design Instagram page, you’ve seen that we’ve been periodically posting photos that the factory’s been sending us as they’re working out the package design for the figures. Just in case you missed those, there are many images of those Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay packaging samples below, and we’ll be posting more over the next week or so. Please pay no attention to missing parts or figures that look incorrect to you in these pics. They just grabbed figures to use as placeholders, and many of them are unfinished. These pics are ONLY for approvals or revisions to packaging.

So, if you know anything about action figure production, then you’ll know that us receiving those images means that production on Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay is nearly complete and the figures will be boxed up and shipped from our factory to our warehouse in the very near future. We just got word from our factory that, unless they run into any further snags, they expect the production of the figures to be fully completed by July 20th, and the figures should ship from the factory by July 23rd! For us, that means we have to start making room in our warehouse because we’ve only got a few weeks after that before they’ll arrive here and begin shipping out to all of you. We can never tell an exact date of arrival from the factory to our warehouse because a lot of factors are involved. Delays leaving the Chinese port, shipping traffic, inclement ocean weather, and delays because of inspection at the US port are all possible reasons for a shipment’s slowed arrival. But, the average shipping time is about 4 to 7 weeks. So we’re still on track to start shipping these things to you in late Summer/early Fall 2018 as long as the shipping gods approve. Keep your fingers crossed, Legionnaires. The Advent of Decay draws nigh…
