Forget stretch goals – after hearing the outcry for MOAR ORCS at Toy Fair, the Four Horsemen decided to unlock two of the stretch goal figures in advance of hitting the stretch goal thresholds for them. Urzokk and the previously unrevealed Bog Goblin are now available as add-ons. Not only that, but they’ve also added figure stands and weapons packs to the mix. Time to go visit the Mythic Legions Kickstarter page to click that blue “Manage” button and up your pledge!
And actually, *don’t* forget the stretch goals. To speed up unlocking the remaining figures, the Four Horsemen have doubled them up at each stretch goal threshold. So at $150K, we’ll get Attlus and Urkku (the remaining and most kick-ass of the Orcs), at $160K it’s Vitus and Asterionn, and at $170K it’s Azhar and Zazhar. We’ve yet to see the last four figures (they’re all still shown with generic silhouettes) but I’m betting we’ll want them, too.

The Four Horsemen have a booth at Toy Fair for the first time this year, and with the bulk of the show behind them they were admittedly a little weary. But mention of the Mythic Legions Kickstarter campaign quickly got them animated again.
As we approach the end of the first week of the campaign, they are approaching 2/3rds of their funding target. To put this in perspective, funding for Mythic Legions passed the threshold for their first Kickstarter, for the Gothitropolis Ravens, in the first three days, but the target for this campaign is much higher – $140K versus $65K. They’re pleased with the progress thus far.

Two years ago at Toy Fair, the Four Horsemen announced plans for their Kickstarter campaign for the Gothitropolis Ravens, which ended up being a runaway success. Today they’ve launched their next campaign, a new fantasy Fantastic Exclusive line called Mythic Legions.
When I talked to them at San Diego Comic-Con last year, they were leaning toward a 4-inch, Glyos-compatible line, similar to their line of Outer Space Men. Because I’m more of a fan of 1/12 scale, I was pleased that they ultimately settled on Mythic Legions being a super-articulated 6-inch line, which will mean these figures will stand side by side with Gothitropolis and Seventh Kingdom figures.
Will the Four Horsemen be able to catch lightning in a bottle a second time on Kickstarter? That’s up to you!

It’s been a long road traveled for the Four Horsemen’s highly successful Gothitropolis Ravens Kickstarter project, and the finish line is in sight. I talked to Cornboy at Preview Night, and although it was tough going, working with three separate factories to get through the pantographing to tooling to painted prototypes, but the 4H are very happy that the quality of the factory samples is meeting their exacting standards.
