These two Kickstarter campaigns are already past their funding stages, but there’s still exciting developments for this week’s Kickstarter update. Boss Fight Studio was at G.I. JOE Con this weekend, but before they left for the show they gave us a first look at one of the most highly anticipated figures of the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. campaign. And while the Four Horsemen previously completed fulfillment of the Gothitropolis Ravens and are now ramping up for production on Mythic Legions, they have revisited the former and are making two variant birds available through Action Figure Xpress.
During their funding campaign, one of the most sought after stretch goals was for a fully-articulated skeleton in scale with the rest of the fantasy-themed 4-inch line. I had high hopes based on what they had accomplished with their male and female base bodies, but even I was surprised with just how poseable these skeletons are turning out to be.
Introducing THE SKELETON!
Hey Boss Fight Backers!
You guys remember the Skeleton, right? One of the many stretch goals that you guys unlocked? Well he’s been very busy for a dead guy over the past several months.
- First he went through the design stage
- Then on to digital sculpting
- And finally, he was ready for his debut!
We’re thrilled to be able to share the Skeleton with you. But our job won’t be done until you have him and all the other Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures in your collection. Stay tuned for more updates as we get ever closer to making Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. a reality!
When the Four Horsemen were in the initial stages of funding their second Kickstarter project, the Mythic Legions, they envisioned bringing back some of the Gothitropolis Ravens in variant decoes for the new campaign. Some fans weren’t completely enthused. Since Mythic Legions was already full to the brim with many champions and army builders, they felt adding in the Ravens would be really tough on the toy budget. Now, some of those variants will be making their way to toy shelves, via Action Figure Xpress and Store Horsemen exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con. The 4H share booth space with AFX at SDCC, so it’s one stop for pick-up at the show.
Look for both of the SDCC exclusive Ravens variants to go up for pre-order on AFX at 3PM EST today. For reference, the individual Ravens (all sold out now) were $32 at the Store Horsemen website.
RAVENS SDCC EXCLUSIVES PRE-ORDERS BEGIN MONDAY!!
This coming Monday, April 13th at 3pm EST both Store Horsemen and Action Figure Xpress will begin pre-orders for their 2015 San Diego Comic Con exclusives! These pre-orders will run until Saturday, April 18th at 3pm.
Pricing and details about the sale will be posted on Monday before the pre-order begins, but until then here are a few images for you to drool over…
Update – the Four Horsemen provided more details for these exclusives:
2015 SDCC “RAVENS” PRE-ORDERS BEGIN TODAY!!
We’re already gearing up for the 2015 San Diego Comic Con and we wanted to make sure that we have some figures ready for the show, so we’re teaming up with our friends over at Action Figure Xpress (AFX) to make this happen!
The first figure will go on sale at 3pm EST and is a Store Horsemen & 2015 SDCC shared exclusive. It’s Nimituss, the Golden Eagle. Inspired by the traditional colors of the fatigues worn by the US Navy (since we’ll be right next door to the Naval Base in San Diego), this exclusive figure will be available for pre-order through Store Horsemen for shipping/delivery only. A small amount will be reserved for the 2015 San Diego Comic Con, but you must purchase and pick those up AT the convention. Not online. We hope to have these figures in stock well enough in advance of SDCC 2015 to ship them out to customers before the convention, but if not they’ll ship out immediately thereafter. The staff shown in the attached image is not the final color of the staff. The staff for this figure will be more of a gun-metal gray. The price for Nimituss, the Golden Eagle will be $35.00 each, plus shipping & handling. The pre-order will run from Monday, April 13th at 3:00pm EST to Monday, April 20th at 3:00pm EST. No limit on amount pre-ordered.
The second figure will go on sale at 3pm PST and is an Action Figure Xpress & 2015 SDCC shared exclusive. It’s Dark Mist Decimus Hrabban. Utilizing his ability to transform into a foggy, ethereal entity, Decimus can swiftly and stealthily stalk the catacombs of Gothitropolis without detection. This exclusive figure will be available for pre-order through AFX for both shipping/delivery AND for pick-up at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con. We hope to have these figures in stock well enough in advance of SDCC 2015 to ship them out to customers before the convention, but if not they’ll ship out immediately thereafter. The staff shown in the attached image is not the final color of the staff. We’re hoping to be able to make this staff in a clear gray to match the Dark Mist Decimus Hrabban figure, but if that’s not possible, it’ll be a solid gray color that will be as close to matching the gray of the figure as possible. The price for Dark Mist Decimus Hrabban will be $35.00 each, (plus shipping & handling for orders to be shipped). The pre-order will run from Monday, April 13th at 3:00pm PST to Monday, April 20th at 3:00pm PST. No limit on amount pre-ordered.
