With under a week left and the original funding target and stretch goals surpassed, the Four Horsemen’s Mythic Legions Kickstarter project has picked up momentum – and is now moving faster than they can supply updates. After revealing Azhar and Zazhar, the demonic pair of figures that had been unlocked sight unseen, the Four Horsemen posted a new stretch goal for the Kickstarter-exclusive Sir Valgard and a weapons accessory pack… which was promptly unlocked.
But there’s more to come. The Four Horsemen have revealed artwork for a Mythic Legions comic book, and teased another stretch goal that will include a second weapons pack and perhaps more characters. I’m hoping we’ll see an orc army-builder. Stay tuned!

Hasbro has revealed the latest figures from its Star Wars Rebels line, featuring a duo from the finale of the first season. Just in case you haven’t seen the finale yet, the image above only shows the figures in silhouette – I’d hate to be the one to spoil it for you. But be warned, they appear below in all their glory.
This pair of Star Wars Rebels figures will be available this fall.

Doubling up on stretch goals and lowering their funding targets has worked – over the weekend the Four Horsemen’s Mythic Legions Kickstarter project hit the minimum threshold for funding the production of the line, and then it proceeded to hit the targets for the remaining stretch goals. That means all of the champions and army builders that were originally announced, plus the additions of the Bog Goblin and Malleus (another skeleton champ) will get made.
The Four Horsemen, who were on the west coast this weekend for the Long Beach Comic Expo, have still to reveal Azhar and Zazhar, the two figures who were unlocked when the last stretch goal was hit. I’m hoping that with 9 days left in the campaign, they have a few more figures in mind that they can add as another stretch goal, to keep the momentum going.

I was really impressed with Buzzy Fret’s pics of the threezero Game of Thrones Tyrion Lannister. If the imp is representative of what threezero can do, then this 1/6 scale Heisenberg will be an indispensable part of your (and my) Breaking Bad collection. I’ve seen a number of custom Walter Whites in 1/6 scale and thought it was a great opportunity for someone to pick up the license – I’m glad it’s threezero. They’ve got the manufacturing chops to do the figure justice, and with the quality of sculpt and paint work we’re seeing from them, I’m bullish that this will turn out great.
To top it off, Heisenberg is coming with a bunch of accessories (more than the imp and Michonne’s pets from Walking Dead), including his hat, glasses, sunglasses, gun, stacks of cash, and more. You can pre-order at threezero’s store for $150 or from Entertainment Earth for $139.99. That’s an exceptional value for this figure – Jesse Pinkman must be in charge of the pricing there.

The final three characters have been revealed for the Mattycollector Club 200X subscription, which Mattel announced at Toy Fair 2015 for the second half of this year. Prahvus, Queen Grayskull, and King Chooblah will be joining Callix, Evil Seed, Ceratus, and five disembodied 200X heads (the exclusive Eternian Heads accessory pack) to round out the six month sub.
The selection reminded me of one aspect I really liked about the 200X cartoon – the flashbacks to the times before He-Man really gave some good backstory and broadened the MOTU universe.
