A few weeks back, the Four Horsemen hinted on their Fantastic Exclusive forums that they’d have some news. Today, they shared it with us. Here’s the summary, with the full press release following it:

  • Fantastic Exclusive has been reconfigured to take the new economic conditions into account, but fans will have more opportunities to get involved in the creative process, including lines outside of the normal Fantastic Exclusive format, like 7th Kingdom and the Outer Space Men.
  • Scarabus going into production in a few months, and Raven is in the design phase with sculpting underway.
  • To support this, the Four Horsemen will be launching a new website that will serve as a hub for all things Horsemen.
  • And they’ll be at San Diego Comic-Con with Action Figure Xpress at booth #4045.

San Diego Comic-Con Four Horsemen Pics

The Four Horsemen are all such nice guys, and it’s good to see them succeeding with their non-licensed properties.

7th Kingdom – The Four Horsemen had production figures of the Queen and her court on display.  They turned out fantastic, and I’m not just saying that because this line is the Fantastic Exclusive this year.  Although I had toyed with waiting to get an entire set, they had Queen Alluxandra and Isadorra on sale, and couldn’t resist.  Look for a more in depth review of those when I get back from Comic-Con.

For more info on these ladies, check out our recap of Queen Alluxandra and her court.

Gothitropolis – This (mostly) Egyptian-themed line is shaping up.  The Four Horsemen revealed some of the variant heads a couple of weeks ago, and there were a few more on display at their section of the AFX booth.  Scarabus is still the only named figure at the present time.  I’m hoping one gets named Fwooshius.

Fans of anthropomorphs, have fun!

Four Horsemen Gothitropolis Sneak Peek – FANtastic Exclusive Forum

Pardon me if I get a little misty here – this week has been pretty fantastic in the action figure world.  We started off the week announcing our Marvel Universe Comic Cover Contest that we’re running with had MOTU Classics Hordak and the DC Universe Classics Battle for Earth 3 set on sale on Monday, and that fittingly kicked off an onslaught of Mattel and Four Horsemen announcements and reviews.  If that wasn’t enough, today we get early word on the Marvel Legends relaunch from Wizard World Philly.

But getting back to why I’m posting – seeing as how fantastic of a week it’s been, it’s somehow poetic that we close out the week with a teaser about the Four Horsemen’s Fantastic Exclusive.  Gothitropolis was originally supposed to be the property that would be offered this summer, but for various reasons the 4H decided to go with 7th Kingdom and Queen Alluxandra and variants instead.

After all those announcements, they decided to give a little taste of what the upcoming Egyptian-themed Gothitropolis variants will be like.

Thought you guys might want a sneak peek at things to come…
