The Four Horsemen's New Line Of Figures Are For The Birds

Recommended Posts

Is this an action figure line that's not copying something from the 80s or dumbing down superheroes for the kiddies? I didn't think I'd see that again!!!

those are pretty damn sweet! the sculpts, especially the heads, are amazing. i also love the wonder paint schemes they are using. my only crit is that they cheaped out on sculpt variations for each bird. they use the same body/armor sculpt for every bird. i would have like to see the duck with webbed feet and maybe have at least one or two variations of armor design.

I've haven't bought any new figures at all since about the beginning of December, I thought I was done collecting for the most part, infact I've sold off a decent size chunk of my figures. This line REALLY looks great and I would for sure get a few of them, not every single one, but I love the Duck, The Phoenix, The Vulture, Rooster, and Griffin, so I'd probably want those to go along with my elephant and cat's I've already got from them. They put out good stuff for sure.

they've FINALLY got their kickstarter up. i must say, while the video was a tad sedate, it made the salient points... and the price is actually lower than i was afraid it would be. i really thought we were heading into like play arts kai kind of price range, but we're not there yet. YAY! now i just need to decide how invested invested is...

Day 8 is complete and we are about $1500.00 from the 5th stretch goal. This is the first day since initial funding that we did not unlock an additional stretch goal. This is not to surprising when you think that many people who would be interested in this project are most likely in San Diego right now. It does appear that the Rooster will unlock on Saturday and the mystery 12th bird will get revealed at the booth at SDCC on Sunday. That big reveal should give us a great push to the 6th stretch goal, a 12th figure, and webbed feet for ol' Minotaur.

Day 9 is complete and we are more than half way to our 12th and last figure. That means when The Screaming American Eagle unlocks the webbed feet upgrade to Minotaur the Duck also unlocks. This last figure will also put us at 75% of our last stretch goal, the Bone Wings.

Day 10 has come and gone and our final bird has unlocked. The Screaming American Eagle has unlocked and with him we unlock webbed feet for each purchased Minotaur the Duck figure. The next stretch goal is $20,000.00 jump so this will take longer but is very much a reachable goal (we are already more than 77% of the way to both sets of wings.

 

Four Horsemen Studios have said that they would be willing to add additional stretch goals and additional sculpted pieces but that might change shipping times. All backers should post their thoughts about this at the KS page so that the 4H can accurately gage if this is an acceptable option for their backers.

Day 12 is behind us. Another 20 backers joined our flock today and we are still on track to get Feathered Wings around Thursday of this week. Most Kickstarter projects have a slow period during the middle two weeks put will pick up speed again during the last week. With two and half weeks remaining in this project the Bone Wings are still easily within reach. Maybe the guys will announce more stretch goals and prod us backers to dish for more.

Day 13 has lived up to its reputation becoming the slowest day of the project. My guess is people's wallets are in shock from SDCC as exclusives hit the websites. With some luck we will still be able to reach the next stretch goal this week. A little more than a third of the way through this project and 84% of the war to the (currently) final stretch goal.

Day 14 is past and while that slow middle ground of all Kickstarters has grabbed hold of our flock we have not lost all momentum. Now is the time to use all that social media we participate in. Go to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit, Instagram, any place that people who enjoy pop culture congregate and talk about and mention the Ravens. Give people a link to the Project page then comment those links at the project page and here or any thread about the Ravens. Let us know so we can all go and push this project through and over the top of those last stretch goals.

Day 15, officially our slowest day since the launch of the project. We are still moving forward but these last to goals are defining what the word stretch means. I still fully believe that we will hit every stretch goal but, as backers, we need to get the word out. Find some people that have not heard of this project and show off this flock. Some great news and pictures of the wings at Source Horsemen (http://www.sourcehorsemen.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=415) that, I hope, will get posted to the project page as an update soon.

Day 16! Welcome to the Middle of the Project! (my apologies to the Pythons) We are half way to end date of this project and 87% of the way to funding of our Bone Wings. That said we are currently $1000.00 shy of the Feathered Wings. I had predicted the wings would land this weekend but I may have missed. Again this is to be expected during this middle section. There should be a last minute surge during the last 5 days as people feel the pressure of time and pull the trigger but I would rather not wait. I want to know that my wings are coming as soon as possible.

Day 17 and another stretch goal has been reached. The Feathered Wings are now unlocked and available to be added to your pledge. While there is and update giving a price of $18.00 there is confusion about international pricing and wether or not there will be additional colors. Please keep checking back as we push on towards the last stretch goal, the Bone Wings.

Day 18 and for the first time in a week our averages have gone back up. More posts, more backers, more money today. Well, on average at least. We also are right on the edge of another milestone - 900 individual backers. 900 people who feel these birds are worth flocking to. For the expected lull that happens in most Kickstarters this project ha plenty of life and those Bone Wings are not that far off.

Day 19 is now behind us. We are now less than $10,000.00 away from gaining our last, at this time, stretch goal, the Bone Wings. Here's a question, Would you people like to see more paid stretch goals or something that might be thrown in as a freebie. What about some of the accessories from older Fan Ex projects in new colors, new Tee shirt designs, other 4H product?

 

What I want to see during these last days of Four Horsemen Studios first (of many, please) Kickstarter project is more background about Gothitropolis? Tell us about the world of Gothitropolis. Who is Scarabus? What are the Time Keepers? What role do the Ravens and their brethren play in all of this? How about you? Speak up here, at Source Horsemen, or on the project page and tell us what you would like.

I would dig some freebie incentives. I have a 2 pack backed.. the wings price is a bit steep for me but debating. They really need to show them in action, instead of the silhouettes. Its hard to fathom just spending that kind of money without seeing them first. I know they do quality but again not made of money to make it rain everywhere i go.

Day 20 is over and we have passed the $160,000.00 mark. Less than $5000.00 away from getting our Bone Wings. We also got lots of clarification from NJ about plans to offer some of the Flock at Store Horsemen after the KS fulfillment is completed. While this is great they do point out that there will need to be minimums of each item ordered through the KS to make sure extras can be order for the web store. The more we order through the KS the more likely those individual birds will make it to Store Horsemen.

Which ones are you getting? I want to back these, but I am not sure which ones I want. I want to get atleast two in one order, so it's a draw between the duck, the vulture, and the screaming eagle. Probably go the duck and eagle route and pick up a vulture down the road.

Day 22 and the Bone Wings and Skull are now unlocked. We are also already half way to unlocking the Pink Flamingo. The Bone Raven Skull was just announced this morning along with setting a stretch goal for the Pink Flamingo and like the first week of this project we backers jumped in with both feet. With the Pink Flamingo a go we can assume (yes, I know) that additional birds, exclusive to different retailers, will be announced this winter. So, how baby birds will make up this flock? What retailers have asked to get on board? What will the next stretch goal be?

 

Here is a big question - With 9 Days and 23 hours as I write this, Could we backers take this project to $250,000.00? Can the first Kickstarter project by Four Horsemen Studios raise One Quarter of a Million dollars?
