For the first time ever, the Four Horsemen hosted their own booth at Toy Fair, showcasing the Mythic Legions collection on Kickstarter right now, as well as their new second series of Gothropolis Ravens.
The Horsemen are no strangers to Toy Fair– they have often attended showcases by Mattel and other companies they have done work for– but 2015 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for their original toy lines, so a booth at Toy fair absolutely made sense.
And it did some good– Eric “Cornboy” Mayse said there has been interest from major distributors to carry the Horsemen’s products, which is a big step up from the studio trying to handle distribution all by themselves. If things proceed, we may see lines like Gothtropolis and the Mythic Legions carried at a number of online outlets, which is great news for the Horsemen and us as collectors.
As for the toys themselves? They looked great– the new Ravens were as inventive and detailed as the first wave, and after seeing the Mythic Legions sculpts up close and assembled as a group, it’s getting harder and harder to not go all-in on this line.
Here’s a few Mythic Legions notes I go, straight from Cornboy:
The Horsemen’s Toy Fair presence was impressive, and it certainly sold me on Mythic Legions as one of the year’s most exciting toy lines. Seeing the detail and the size of these figures, I am very glad the Horsemen opted for a 6″ scale… I’m totally looking forward to these figures, as well as the follow up wave of Power Lords, which will launch on Kickstarter sometime this year.
