“MYTHIC LEGIONS: COVENANT OF SHADOW” LAUNCHES TONIGHT!!

Tonight (or tomorrow, depending on whether you’re a night owl or not…) Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadow goes up for pre-order on Store Horsemen! The pre-order is going to begin earlier than we’d originally planned because we’ll be at the San Diego Comic Con at the time we’d originally planned to put it up live, and we’re just afraid that their screwy wifi will mess with our launch. It’s a pre-order so you don’t have to rush right in there and get yours right at the launch time of Tuesday at 12:01am EST, but if you do, you might just have the bragging rights of being able to scream out your bedroom wind at all of your neighbors, “FIRST!!!!”

Buuuuuuut, not only is Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadow going up for pre-order tonight at just after midnight, but we’re also launching Store Horsemen pre-orders for the Mythic Legions 1.0 All-Stars wave and since the production of the Mythic Legions Deluxe Trolls is moving along slower than expected, we’re putting those two big oafs back up for pre-order as well, and are adding those new pre-orders to the overall production run.

The Mythic Legions All-Stars consists of a half dozen of the most popular Mythic Legions characters from wave 1.0, and if this pre-order does well, there’s a pretty good possibility that we’ll do more of those 1.0 characters as part of future Mythic Legions All-Stars waves. Pop over to the Source Horsemen forums and let us know which Mythic Legions characters you’d like to see in future All-Stars waves!

So go chug a strong pot of coffee, put on some loud obnoxious music, and pop some toothpicks up under those eyelids to keep you awake until the Store Horsemen pre-order starts in a couple hours. The night is young and the party’s just getting started!

CURRENT FOUR HORSEMEN SCHEDULE!

An update about production and shipping of various Four Horsemen projects…

MYTHIC LEGIONS 1.0: All of the domestic and international Kickstarter rewards have shipped. We’ve been spending the last couple of weeks taking care of some of the customer issues with the Kickstarter rewards that have shipped out as well as preparing the Store Horsemen Mythic Legions 1.0 pre-orders from both Spring 2015 and Spring 2016 for shipping. Those will all finally begin shipping tomorrow and shouldn’t take more than a week or two to get shipped out (fingers crossed…).

MYTHIC LEGIONS 1.5: We were expecting all of these pre-ordered items to be in the warehouse around late spring/early summer, but there were a couple of minor production delays, so it looks like they’re going to be shipping from the factory within a couple of weeks or so and arriving in our warehouse and begin shipping in late summer.

MYTHIC LEGIONS TROLLS: Although these were solicited with Mythic Legions 1.5, production on these will take a little longer because of the different typo of tooling and production methods used to make a figure this large, so it looks as if these figures may arrive in the studio warehouse in late fall and begin shipping then. These will ship separately from Mythic Legions 1.5. Pre-orders for the Trolls will once again open up at the same time that the Mythic Legions: Covenant of Shadows pre-orders begin on Store Horsemen on July 20th, 2016 at 3pm EST for a limited time.

SKELETON LEGION BUILDERS AND ORC LEGION BUILDERS REPLACEMENT FIGURES FOR MYTHIC LEGIONS 1.0: These will arrive at the studio warehouse along with Mythic Legions 1.5 and the Avian Warriors, and will begin shipping out to customers who are still missing them at that time.

AVIAN WARRIORS: We were expecting all of these pre-ordered items to be in the warehouse around late spring/early summer, but there were a couple of minor production delays, so it looks like they’re going to be shipping from the factory within a couple of weeks or so and arriving in our warehouse and begin shipping in late summer. The “Avian Warriors” includes the basic birds wave, the Eathyron’s Dozen group the Avian All-Stars wave and Eagalus.

MYTHIC LEGIONS – COVENANT OF SHADOW (previously known as wave 1.75): Pre-orders for this wave will begin on Store Horsemen on July 20th, 2016 at 3pm EST.

MYTHIC LEGIONS ALL-STARS 1.0: Pre-orders for this wave will begin on Store Horsemen on July 20th, 2016 at 3pm EST.

MYTHIC LEGIONS KICKSTARTER 2.0: If all goes as planned, our current schedule is to have the Kickstarter for this wave launching in Fall 2016. We’ll be showing a few new and unseen prototypes from this wave at our booth at San Diego Comic Con 2016 – #3345.

SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2016: This year we’ll be sharing our booth at SDCC 2016 with Icon Heroes! We’ll be at booth #3345, and there will be lots of Mythic Legions stuff on display for you to drool over! Please stop by and say hey!

MYTHIC LEGIONS: FOREST KNIGHT REVEALED!!

Only one more Mythic Legions 1.75 reveal to go after this one and we’re betting that many of you already know who that’s going to be. But today we’re revealing the protector of the woodlands – the Forest Knight!!

MYTHIC LEGIONS: POISON SKELETON REVEALED!!

Only a couple more Mythic Legions 1.75 reveals left to go, and this one today might be one that you remember peeking through that mysterious box of bubble wrapped paint-masters that we were sending over to the factory for production a couple weeks ago. The horrific Poison Skeleton!

MYTHIC LEGIONS: KNIGHT BUILDER SET REVEALED!!

The Barbarian Builder Set from Mythic Legions 1.0 was one of the most popular of all of the Mythic Legions figures so far, and since then one of the most requested items since then has been a Knight Builder Set. Your wish is our command! The paints are not 100% finalized on this figure, but we think you get a good idea from these shots what he’s going to look like. And those of you who are fans of a classic fantasy toy line, you might notice a few more parts you’ll need for that custom figure you’ve been clamoring for (and yes, we’re revealing here for the first time that we are going to include a second upper torso – the tunic in the same blue as his loin-cloth)…
