  1. Made from Mythic Legions / Figura Obscura Jabob Marley (Christmas ghost) and a repainted Super7 Capt. Deadstar head.
  2. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Ghost of Jacob Marley figure from the Figura Obscura line by the Four Horsemen Studios! Released in early December, the Ghost of Jacob Marley is another character issue from litterature, this time from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. In the story, the ghost of the former business partner of Ebenezer Scrooge visits him to warn him about his fate, that could be similar to his, and that 3 Christmas Spirits would visit him. You know the story... Raise your hands if you've also re-watched a movie version of it since the figure was announced! The packaging comes with the usual sleeve with magnets, with a nice painting inside to use as a diorama, which is always a nice little bonus with the Figura Obscura line. This one also has the 'Scrooge and Marley' sign inside the box. Like the Masque of the Red Death figure, it also came with a little booklet with the story, along with a holiday card. The booklet does say 'Stave One', so I have a feeling we'll get to the other parts eventually... A Christmas Spirits 3-pack? An army-builder ghost figure with all 3 heads? Stay tuned! The Ghost of Jacob Marley is an amazing figure. It comes with 2 head sculpts (one with its jaw held shut with a head wrap, and one with mouth loose, wide open), 3 extra pairs of hands, Marley's chains which have various cash boxes, ledgers and a safe attached to them, 2 door knockers which re-use the head sculpts (clever!) and extra keys. The figure looks fantastic, with lots of details on the suit, and the boots and bottom of his coat are transluscent. Ghastly! The chains and all the various parts in them also have a lot of details and look great, even if they can sometimes easily get tangled when you're moving the figure, or changing its head/hands (it adds to Marley's penance!). Another great figure for the Figura Obscura line. Spoiler: The safe includes a secret... Keep scrolling if you wanna see what's in it! More news at 11:00... I wear the chain I forged in life! I made it link by link and yard by yard!
  3. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at 2 action figures from the Four Horsemen Studios, the Power-Con 2023 exclusive Demistros and the latest figure in the Figura Obscura line, the Masque of the Red Death! I was waiting for the latest Legions Con exclusive Vorgus Vermillius 2.0 figure to group them in the same review, but plans have changed and I will get it later. Not an issue though, as those 2 offerings from the Four Horsemen Studios are awesome figures! First off, Demistros, who is neither a Mythic Legions, Figura Obscura or even Cosmic Legions figure, but a Power-Con figure, as mentioned on the box. Obviously, he uses mostly parts from Mythic Legions figures, but he's not part of the line. Demistros comes with 2 fantastic head sculpts (bone color and translucent green), 2 pairs of hands (normal and translucent green), a beautiful double sided (black and purple) cape by CJESIM, a big sword, a morning star (or ball and chain flail) and a spear. His armor has great details and paint, with some rust/patina effect. I was not a big fan of the Belphegor figure from the Arethyr wave, thinking the head was a bit too big, but put bone color (or translucent green!) on it and I'm sold. It is a fantastic figure. The latest figure in the Figura Obscura line was revealed in late September, and is not necessarily linked to any 'holiday' (After Krampus, the Headless Horsemen and Father Christmas, I associated the line with holidays, but the Monkey King has changed that since). The Masque of the Red Death is inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe short story of the same name, and there is even a little booklet included with the story in it. The figure comes with 3 extra pairs of hands, a dagger, along with a large ebony clock, with a pool of blood in front of it (that can serve as a base for the figure). It has a beautiful soft goods, wired robe, designed by the great CJESIM. Another fantastic figure, which looks great any way you display it. The clock is a great prop that can be used in all sorts of other toy pictures. It has a raven on top (you know, the one from the quote!). Just like the previous Figura Obscura figures, the packaging includes a backdrop, but if I wanted to be nitpicky, I would have prefered the picture that was on the cardboard insert inside the box (simple red stained glass) rather than the one with the people wearing masks screaming painted on it, just to have a more 'standard' background, but it's still an amazing painting. The mask of the figure can be removed to reveal... i'll let you see for yourself. I am in love with that line, and can't wait for what's next! More news at 11:00... "And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all."
  4. A silent sequential with 4HM/Mythic Legions newly released Monkey King from their Figura Obscura collection.
  5. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at 2 Figura Obscura figures, the Krampus figure from last year, and the Father Christmas figure from this year, from the Four Horsemen Studios. Both figures were revealed and released a bit before Christmas 2021 and 2022. The Figura Obscura line is a new line of figures that features characters from myths, legends and folk tales, giving them that nice Four Horsemen Studios spin. The review of the Figura Obscura Headless Horseman, which came out for Halloween can be found here. First, the Figura Obscura Krampus, from Christmas 2021, is a gorgeous figure. The box art is great, it comes with a magnetic sleeve that can be used as a background. Krampus comes with 2 extra hands, his tail, a bundle of sticks, a barrel bag (with surprise items inside!), a rope to hold the bag, a pair of chained handcuffs and bells. The Krampus figure itself looks amazing, with hooves, a very demonic head sculpt with his tongue out (a second headsculpt with closed mouth would have been cool, though). The figure is pitch black with a few highlights. A second version of it, entirely red, was announced later and is still available at BigBadToyStore. When the Four Horsemen Studios teased that there would be a Figura Obscura 'drop' during the holiday season, lots of folks expected some sort of warrior/viking version of Santa Claus. In the end, Father Christmas was announced, using a more classic look for Old Saint Nick. The figure also has a beautiful box with amazing art and a background/sleeve. Father Christmas comes with soft goods (robe, hood and ... under-robe?), along with a ton of accessories: a second head sculpt (shorter beard and slightly rounder features), 2 crowns of holly leaves (had to google that), a soft goods hood, a large wooden staff that can hold the lantern, a bag full of toys (which are not removable), a doll, a small drum, a trumpet (TOYFARCE APPROVED!), and his very own Christmas tree! (I had grabbed a few in anticipation, and he turned out to have his own!). When you undress him, you can see that Father Christmas has really hit the gym and done his cardio, as his body is not at all the round jolly Santa Claus type under the robe! I'm really loving that line, and can't wait to see what's next. Cupid for Valentine's Day? Easter Bunny?? More news at 11:00... Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas!
  6. A bit over a week ago, the Four Horsemen Studios surprised us with a new release from their Figura Obscura line, which involves characters from legends, myths and folk tales. The character in question ended up being none other than Father Christmas, the one and only Santa Claus himself... As is tradition with the Figura Obscura line, there were 2 'windows' during which the figure could be ordered, but surprisingly, Father Christmas is still available and in stock to this day. While one could think that there was just a lot more figures produced this time, in anticipation of selling out quickly, it turns out the issue lies much deeper... and is about believing or not in Santa Claus! "We are completely fine with creatures, skeleton knights, orcs, trolls, even Krampus or the Headless Horsemen, but we find this last figure a bit too hard to believe in" said a long-time collector of the line. "A demon like Arethyr riding a horse on fire? That's fine. A dead queen with a vampire army? Easy to believe! But an old jolly man riding a sleigh in the sky and bringing presents to everybody all around the world in one night? Give me a break... It's too much! I cannot believe in this." You can still get your Figura Obscura figure here, before it's gone! More news at 11:00... Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
