Power Lords Returns has a new article up announcing that Wayne Barlowe has found some long missing design artwork for the Power Lords action figure line from the 80s! We’re really excited by this new find and we’re hoping that we’ll get to produce some of the never before seen characters and variants in that incredible packet of artwork. To read the article and see images, just jump on over to Power Lords Returns now!
As many of you already know, the current Store Horsemen sale for our new Power Lords releases was open in the first 48 hours for Power Lords Fan Club members only, but it’s now been opened up to the general public since 3pm this afternoon (Sunday), and although there are figures left they’re going quickly. So if you’re interested in any of the current Power Lords figures up for sale, be sure and get in there and grab yours ASAP. Any orders accidentally taken over the allotted stock will have to be cancelled and refunded.
Also up for pre-order right now are the latest Infinity Edition waves of Outer Space Men which include Terra Firma, Jack Asteroid, Ohpromatem, Horroscope, Gamma X, and the highly popular Colossus Rex. We just got word from our shipping agent that those should arrive at the NYC port later this week, so if they make it through customs unscathed, we should have those in our studio warehouse and being prepared for shipment sometime next week. Keep your fingers crossed for that.
Last, the Seventh Kingdom Scratch & Dent Sale… Holy crap… We had no idea that clearance sale would be that popular and our online store got completely hammered by people attempting to place orders in the first 10 minutes! Many of the items were completely sold out in the first two minutes and the items that were highest in numbers were completely gone just a couple minutes later. Unfortunately with our online store being so overwhelmed with orders, it was hard for us to mark the items as sold out before many other people got their orders in. In other words, even though someone might’ve been able to place an order and it showed that all of the Seventh Kingdom Scratch & Dent Sale items that they wanted to order was in their cart, those items might’ve already been sold out, and the sold out items had to be cancelled and they’d only be charged for the items they’d ordered that were actually in stock. We’ll be sending emails out to customers who had to have their orders either partially or completely cancelled because of this over the next day or two. We really do apologize for the inconvenience this might cause some people. We’d MUCH rather get our figures into the hands of everyone who wants them, but the reality, as we said before, is that there were VERY few of these items remaining and because of the expense to produce those massive figures today, we don’t have any plans to go into production on them again. Congratulations to those who were able to get their hands on the remaining figures, and hopefully those who had to have their orders cancelled won’t be too upset with us.
We wanted to send out a little reminder that the Power Lords sale, Outer Space Men pre-order sale and the Seventh Kingdom scratch & dent sale all go live on Store Horsemen in about two hours from now at 3pm est. There seems to be a lot of buzz going on about the sale, so get in there fast. Any items that are accidentally sold past the actual in stock amount will have to be cancelled.
We’ve also added another item to tonight’s sale. The Outer Space Men Chrome Accessories set! This is the first accessories set that we’ve ever sold and if it goes well, we’d love to be able to do more. You can go directly to Store Horsemen right now to have a look at them.
Last, shipping costs to us just went up dramatically again, so we’re currently trying more new ways to find the best alternatives to be able to offer you the fastest and safest way to ship your Store Horsemen items at the cheapest price possible, so please continue to bear with us as we make adjustments to the store and the pricing.
This Friday we’re going to launch our biggest sale ever at Store Horsemen! SALE BEGINS ON 2/28/2014 at 3pm est
We recently had our 4th annual gallery show, Toypocalypse 4: FanEXtasy, at TT Underground gallery in NYC, and while there we sold the Power Lords: Barlowe Concept Color Ggripptogg figure to a lucky few. Those all sold out but this is a shared exclusive so we will have them on Store Horsemen for sale as well. Like all Power Lords releases through Store Horsemen, these items will be available to eligible Power Lords Fan Club members only during the first 48 hours and then will be released for sale to the general public if any remain. These are an extremely limited item so the price is a little higher than normal at $25 each plus shipping & handling and they will be limited to one per customer in the first 48 hours.

We just wrapped up our 4th annual Toypocalypse gallery show this week and we just wanted to take a moment to thank TT Underground Gallery and Toy Tokyo in New York City for hosting us once again and we especially want to thank everyone who helped out with the show and contributed to it’s success. We really enjoy doing silly little things like this and it just wouldn’t be possible without all of you. We also wanted to do a bit of a wrap up here kind of explaining some of the things that were revealed at the show and to discuss some of the ongoing projects that you saw there.
Our plan is to make Mythic Legions a 4 inch scaled line very much like our current Power Lords line of figures. It’s a fantasy/sword & sorcery based action figure line which will feature an amazing amount of articulation and will utilize the incredibly modular, Glyos based “pop & play” interchangeability. The articulation points on the current prototypes include Ball & socket head, ball-joint shoulders, ball-joint elbows, swivel wrists, swivel waist, ball-joint hips, swivel thigh cuts, ball-joint knees, ball-joint ankles, and ankle rockers. That’s a pretty hefty level of articulation to fit into such a small and modular figure!

As part of the reveal of this incredible new action figure line, we have a customs showcase of beautifully customized prototypes done by many well known and fan favorite names in the toy and design industries. You can see a few sneak peek images below, and the tentative customs guest list includes…
George Gaspar (Toy Break and October Toys), Scott Tolleson (Stolleart), Matt Doughty (Onell Design), Nate Baertsch (Nate Baertsch Illustration), Ni (NiStuff), Ralph Attanasia (Cake Boss and Mr. Ralph’s Monster Gallery), Joe Amaro (Amaro), Andy Piver (Andy Piver Illustration), Ed Waysek (Edcomics Deviant Art Page and Four Horsemen Design), Shane Dittsworth (Four Horsemen Design), Sherri Lynn Cook (Four Horsemen Design) and Owen “Odawg” Oertling (http://www.sourcehorsemen.com).
Each of the customized prototypes will be in hand and on display at the show and will be available for purchase.
Also on display for the first time ever is a complete set of our fully carded Outer Space Men production pieces. Power Lords comes back this year with brand new prototypes along with first looks at final product and card art. We have an extensive look at the Gothitropolis: Raven figure along with updates on the production process. We also have Masters of the Universe Classics on display with a collection of figures and accessories adorning the mighty Castle Grayskull.
Toypocalypse 4: FanEXtasy – Opening reception (open to the public): Saturday, Jan. 15th from 7pm to 10pm at TT Underground Gallery – 91 2nd Ave. New York, NY.
The Four Horsemen’s 4th annual gallery show, Toypocalypse 4: FanEXtasy, begins this Saturday and there will be a VERY limited number of the new “Barlowe Concept Color Ggripptogg” figure. This figure represents the original color concept art that Power Lords creator and world renowned creature designer for major motion pictures, Wayne Barlowe created early in the unusual action figure line’s inception in the 80′s.
The limited number of figures being sold at the Toypocalypse 4: FanEXtasy show at TT Underground Gallery in New York City on Saturday, February 15th are going to be up for sale to anyone who attends the show, and one per person at $25.00 each. Each figure will be signed by Wayne Barlowe himself and Wayne will be in attendance at the show if you’d like to meet the man behind the Power Lords madness, as well as the acclaimed concept artist/creature designer on such blockbuster motion pictures as Avatar, Hellboy, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, and Pacific Rim!
A limited amount of these figures will also be available unsigned through the Four Horsemen’s online retail outlet, Store Horsemen a week or so after the show, but those will first be made available to Power Lords Fan Club members only for the first 48 hours and we expect them to go fast!
