We just wanted to give you all a little teaser of what’s to come sometime next week. We’re in the process of moving the studios right now so our internet may be down very soon for a few days, but once we come back, we’re going to post some images of some of the production process that’s been going on. Everything from finished test shots (some of which we may be selling to lucky Mythic Legions fans in the very near future), to the first paint samples from the factory. Plastic is being injected into the mods as we speak and we’re hoping to have the final, finished test shots in our hands for inspection very soon. These next couple of pics will just give you an idea of the amazing figures to come. Obviously the figures you see here are currently shown in the Eagalus, packaging, but we do intend to use the same shape of packaging for Mythic Legion where possible, so you can get an idea from this image just how cool these will look…
Here are more images of the next group of avian warriors that will be hitting Mythic Legions. For those of you already asking about whether we’ll be seeing more of the patriotic warbird Eagalus and his pals – please be patient. We think you’re gonna like what we have in store… Enjoy!
Coming VERY soon to Store Horsemen!! We just wrapped up the paint-masters for the follow-up line of our highly popular line of anthropomorphic bird warrior action figures released over the last year or so, and they’re going to be the next Mythic Legions release. At the moment we’re calling these incredible zoological oddities “Mythic Legions: Ornithoflock“, but that could change by the time they’re actually released. We couldn’t refer to these beautiful, majestic and dangerous looking creatures as just “birds” could we?
The images we’re showing today are just painted prototypes and their final accessories aren’t included in these shots. The price tag on these will probably be about the same as the previous release of bird characters, but if the price does increase at all, it’ll be a minimal increase. We’re going through costing on them now, and that’ll give us a good idea as to where the price will fall. The plan as of right now is to do a pre-order through Store Horsemen within the next month. We’ll post news about that pre-order as soon as we have it though Source Horsemen, our Facebook page and through Kickstarter updates. So here are the first seven images! More to come tomorrow! Enjoy!
The recently pre-ordered SDCC 2015 and Store Horsemen shared exclusive Nimituss, the Golden Eagle figure has finally arrived in the studio warehouse and are in the process of shipping out to everyone who pre-ordered them now. There will be a very small quantity of them left after everything’s shipped out and we will be putting those up on Store Horsemen – along with a few other goodies – after everything’s shipped out to those who pre-ordered. We’ll be putting up an announcement about those in the very near future, so keep your eyes peeled on our main website – Source Horsemen.
For those that pre-ordered the Dark Mist Decimus Hrabban from Action Figure Xpress, those came in as well and we’ll be shipping those out to AFX today, so expect them to begin shipping those out to pre-order customers soon as well.
If you haven’t already jumped onboard for Power-Con 2016, now’s the time to do it! Not only are ticket sales and hotel rooms going quickly, but there are THREE Masters of the Universe Classics exclusive figures that are up for pre-order right now, and if you miss these awesome figures created by the Four Horsemen, you’re definitely going to regret it. Check out the pics below of these incredible figures – Red Beastman, Camo-Khan and the massive Green Granamyr – and then head on over to http://www.thepower-con.com for more info and to purchase those tickets!!
We just got word that our most recent shipment from the factory overseas (which contains the pre-ordered Nimituss figure, as well as missing or damaged wings, bone wings and other birds) has arrived at the docks in New York and is waiting to be released from customs. Here’s what we got from our shipping organizer this morning…
“Please note that the container is on X-ray hold and MET exam as well. Once US customs finishes the scan of the container, it will be moved to exam site and an inspector will examine the shipment. I will keep you posted on the status of the shipment.”
This process usually only takes a couple of days, and then the shipment will be sent to our warehouse where we can begin processing all of it and shipping it out to you. Once this shipment arrives in our warehouse, we’ll put another announcement up on SourceHorsemen.com
So the San Diego Comic Con for 2015 has come and gone and hopefully you all got a thrill out of some of our reveals for both Mythic Legions and Power Lords, as well as the reveals that Mattel unleashed that we were involved with – not the least of which were the reveal of the upcoming Snake Mountain playset for Masters of the Universe Classics and the announcement that they’ve acquired the license for Thundercats and we’re going to be doing all of the work on those figures for them. We’re really excited about the upcoming next few years because of all of this. Below are a few bullet-points giving you a bit of an update on the current status of things and a little bit of a look ahead as well.
– MYTHIC LEGIONS – As you saw at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con, things are moving along well for Mythic Legions. We showed test shots (the first plastic that’s run through the steel molds) of many of the Mythic Legions characters and we’ll be taking detailed photos of all of the test shots and posting them online within the next week or so. We’re going over those test shots with a fine toothed comb now so we can let the factory know what adjustments need to be made on them and so far the changes have all been very minor. In all of the years we’ve been doing this, those first ML test shots may have been the best we’ve ever gotten. This means that the final product promises to be spectacular. We also revealed the first of our oversized or “deluxe” Mythic Legions characters – the Troll! It was just a very rough sculpture and there’s still a lot to do to make it a finished figure, but as you can tell from what’s already been done with it, the figure’s going to be amazing. It’ll have multiple variant versions – each with a different head, different weapons and a different “soft goods” (fur, leather, burlap, etc…) loincloth and will tower over all of the other current Mythic Legions figures. We’ll get better pics of that guy up soon before we go into the final sculpting stages on him soon as well. You may also have noticed a couple of new characters added to the birds line that used to be a part of our Gothitropolis property – the Hornbill and the Dragon. We’re going to go in and finish all of the paints on all of the prototypes that were on those shelves and hopefully do a pre-order for those and some of the previously released birds through Store Horsemen within the next month or so. http://www.MythicLegions.com
– POWER LORDS – An armored Adam Power and two armored aliens were added to the Power Lords cases as well as a couple of really freakily awesome variant versions of the alien Raygoth. Those are all being done in preparation for the pre-order and release of wave two of the Power Lords which will also include Sydot the Supreme and a few incredible variant versions of him. Shown were both two-up prototypes and 1:1 scaled prototypes and people were asking if we’re moving things to a 6″ scale with these. The simple answer for now at least is no. All of the upcoming releases will still fit in with all of your previously existing 4″ scaled Adam Power, Lord Power, Ggripptogg and Power Soldier figures. Watch here for more info coming soon about how you can get in on that pre-order. http://www.PowerLordsReturn.com
– ON THE WAY – We sold lots of the SDCC/Store Horsemen shared exclusive Nimituss figure at the San Diego Comic Con, but they didn’t completely sell out there so we will have a very limited quantity of those up for sale on Store Horsemen very soon – possibly at the same time we do pre-orders for the new birds mentioned above. We were able to get them in time for Comic Con because we had some of the production run shipped to us there via FedEx. The remainder of the shipment, as well as all of the remaining replacement items (missing or damaged wings, bone wings and birds) are currently shipping to us from the factory via boat (the usual method) and are scheduled to arrive at our New York docks on August 8th. As soon as those get into our warehouse, we’ll begin shipping them out to everyone, and once all of that stuff has shipped, we’ll put an announcement up on http://www.SourceHorsemen.com
