New hip joint for the ogres confirmed!
I missed the entire stream when do preorders close
>teasing use for dragon men using Thygar's parts in Mythic Legions
>>9301563You got 6 weeks.
>>9301556Clearly not. Though it would have been nice if he had some more weapons for his arms to hold. Here's hoping that some of those bonus unlocks are more weapons for the big guy. I kind of like the science officer. I don't really like the other Legion builders, so in that sense I'm disappointed.
>>9301563October 24th is when the Preorders will end. Plenty of time to save up your Biden Buxs
>>9301540>oh cool >check>only like the big green guyYeah this line ain’t for me
>>9301531never bought a mythic legions in my life, just preordered slogg because hes amazing. what am i in for
>>9301587A pretty damn cool toy. Also wallet rape as you start buying more and more when you didn't mean to...
>>9301587You're getting a big guy
Underrated figure. I can't wait to have an army of these.
>>9301556I think I won't get around ordering this guy, he just looks too damn good
I didn't want to buy more toys, damnit. Some of these are fucking too cool to pass on.
Meeh no humans with space suits... I guess I will have to settle with 1 or 2 builders :/
>>9301531Well that was neat, time to sleep while my wallet cries in anticipation of the raping it'll receive in the day
>>9301531as expected this looks like a line of figures for terrible scifi paperback covers. probably some people like that though. slogg does indeed look amazing
these are my go to picks, and god damn i still want to add more.
>>9301633Hopefully we get those later, though for now my plan is to use that extra unhelmeted Attila head from the 2 pack on either a sentry or scientist body
>>9301577Didn't realize their cost of shipping went up so much. Wanted this guy, but damn, the shipping is not kind at all. I hate 'scalping' but maybe I should buy extras to try and sell to alleviate some of that cost. Shipping him alone is an additional two thirds of what he costs.
>>9301639I might end up getting Kragg, Slogg, brown bug and the sentry.I don't even want to think about the price for shipping that internationally...
>>9301640Or skeleton heads on the tu5cc guy
I really don't like that the hand-packs are only available for multiple characters at once.
I think I want half nekkied Thylog and the two bugs. Tempted on that white trooper... I'm going to lose about $200 no matter what.
>>9301648Just did this for you. This is to Canada, so idk if it'll be even more wherever you might be, assuming it isn't also Canada. It doesn't seem right, unless 4H are also including local taxes so that those won't have to be paid at the door. Probably not, given local tax on this would be $28 or so.
>>9301681Just tried the All-in. Ya, the shipping is all screwed up.
>>9301681>>9301690oh, thanks for testing that, I'm definitely gonna wait if there's gonna be a correction to those shipping prices before ordering.
>>9301681Lol I almost grabbed slogg as a leaf and nope
looks like there's quite a bit more planned that we haven't seen yet
>>9301708No shitWho would've thought that a wave titled book 1 would have more planned
pretty boring designs.Power Lords should have been done instead.
>>9301690>>9301701It's probably right. I remember for All Stars 4, the shipping for just a troll and the 2 MOTU figs was more than the shipping for the all in to Australia.The issue seems to be the bigger figures. The Half Giant and the accessory pack in the Deluxe Legion Builder wave would both add $60 to my shipping.This time it looks like Slogg and Deluxe Olek are causing the excessive charge. Kraggnar and the bugs seem to be fine.
>>9302056>pretty boring designs.They're western toys, what did you expect?
>>9302147Western designs are better than most others' aliens.Like i said, the Power Lords designs are actually good, unlike 4Hs.
>>9302056Looks more like >>9301598 >>9301577 >>9301556 are unused Power Lords designs just repurposed to make a sci-fi series.
>>9302172>Power Lords designs just repurposedhence looking boring.they went>i need to change it just enough to avoid getting suedAnd you end up with something not as good, like most rip offs.
>>9302179I think that they designed the adaptations. And with this scribbled new designs. Maybe even thought if it is a success, you might want to expand the line by own designs.So this than transformed into the idea of making their own sci-fi line.
>>9301639This is mine, this is:>x1 Slogg>x1 Kraggnar>x2 Graving Olek>x2 Hvalkatar Olek>x2 Spexxian Block Commander>x3 Spexxian Prinson Guard>x2 TU5CC Engineer >x3 TU5CC Scientist >x4 TU5CC Sentry>X1 Vorgga>X1 Zeeri>x3 Weapon Pack>x3 TU5CC Hand Pack>x3 Vorgga/Zeeri Hand PackThis is using 1 All In pack which saves a little bit of money but that UK shipping is painful. I think I'll probably cut down the Vorrga and Zeeri hand pack down to two but otherwise these numbers seem alright to me, it covers any future kit bashes I might want to make and I already have several ideas for the new parts.I'm probably not going to order it until later in the month though to give me enough time to think about it all and see what the domestic retail situation is like.
>>9302204Holy shit That's a lot
>>9302213Yeah, it comes to about £940 before accounting for currency conversion fees and possible customs (all my previous orders from storehorsemen have gotten through fine though).The weird thing is though that, for multiple figures at this, ordering directly from them is still the cheapest route.
>>9302056Eh I disagree, the only designs I find boring are the station staff
I like the big guy 4u, but I'm considering holding out because this body looks like confirmation that mythic legions will be getting a lizardman ogre-scale, at the very least. Look closely at his body, it's perfect for it.>>9301556Slogg looks great, what an absolute unit. Definitely getting him. >>9302056Power lords looks like shit, I don't understand why people like them. Like if you like them then power to you but all those designs look like garbage. The gross flat paint doesn't help. Maybe I'm not nostalgic for the same things you are.
>>9302321And here's the normal lizardman pieces. Definitely going to have to hold out in these two, I think. Give me the lizardmen, 4h.
And I'll bet you anything 4 of these wings will be used for the Pestilence horseman. Will probably still get at least one of these though, bugman look is too cool
>>9302333>Give me the lizardmen, 4h.Fucking for real. I need my sexy harem of scalies.
>>9302321>I don't understand why people like thembecause they actually look alien vs >>9302321>>9302333 these lazy things that even right now i question if they're actually from the space line and might be something i missed from the mythic legion line.Looks like they came from Spore or some other cheapo character trait selection menu game.Either they're running out of ideas or they're going super budget on the molds, so they can just reuse the molds for either of their lines. Samey as fuck.
>>9302358>Looks like they came from Spore or some other cheapo character trait selection menu game.this
>>9302333>>9302321these two look the least Alien to me. they just seem like fantasy dudes but with scifi stuff on.
>>9302358Like the other guy said, theyre just pre-tools for mythic legions. They confirmed as much on the stream.
>>9302378That's all sci-fi is.
>>9302378what sci fi stuff? The only thing that looks remotely not-medieval fantasy is that mace with those rings around it. But that''s just steampunk.>>9302379which guy?
>>9302378I largely agree with you, but they also have parts that look like they will be used for lizardmen, which are my most desired addition to Mythic Legions, so I don't care. I'll skip them now and eventually get lizardmen. Like >>9302379 said. >>9302346Mood kindred
These would have been cool in 1/18, and much cheaper for the bigger ones. As is, hard pass.
>generic zbrush tutorial style
For those not happy with the alien designs, they said during the stream that they wanted to start with more humanlike characters and get weirder with the designs later on.
>>9302056I have wished death upon the 4H ever since their treatment of this. Pathetic.
>>9302486It failed because no one gives a shit about Power Lords. Get oyourself.
Probably just gonna get Zirri and the spare hands. One thing is, the spare hands aren't painted to fit with the hands she comes with.
>>9302486They should've lead with Arkus instead of the crap we got, Raygoth being an exception.
>>9302507No, it failed because 4H didnt bother to market their line to anyone but their fanbase, which is made up of hemanfags.They're as bad as Zica Toys
>>9302577I don't care about He-Man
>>9302583>>9302577I don't care about He-Man OR Power Lords. No interest in nostalgia wank
>>9302584Slogg isn't a troll-size, he's like ogre height but troll thicc. On their stream they showed him next to one of the human size characters.
>>9301531Looks like nobody cares about this fourhorseshit line lmao! I hope it flops and kills the company. Should have made a 1/18 line the dumbasses.
>>9302590Heh, deleted my post because I got the size wrong for Kraggnar. Thanks for immortalizing my folly.So wait, it says on the website that Kraggnar is 12" tall, but he looks to be an ogre figure. Or isn't he?
>>9302583>>9302586Same, if I wanted He-Man toys I'd be buying He-Man toys, not Mythic Legions.I do enjoy the homage figures though, I like the added colour to the line.Speaking of are we going to see more of the Moss Man and Stinkor homages since Powercon is soom?
>>9302586I have no idea who Power Lords were either, but the designs were good.Still, doesn't change the fact that 4H's fanbase is made up of hemanfags and 4h didn't market their line toward the people they were aiming to sell it to (1:18 collectors).
>>9302552>One thing is, the spare hands aren't painted to fit with the hands she comes with.really? that's weird.
>>9302056Oh look, it's this faggot whining some more. You lost and are forgotten. Bitch.
>>9302598They said he’s a bit taller than an ogre but called him ogre scale
>>9302604yeah, the figure's hands are gloved, but the spare hand set is all painted blue
>>9302667The blue hands are for Vorgaa, the other girl in the wave, the brown set is for Zeeri.They're doing multiple characters hands per pack like how all the TU5CC guys share a pack.
>>9302663Looks like they did what they did in MOTUC and didn't put moss on spots near the joints
>>9302590>>9302598>>9302662I plan on cherry picking super hard on these figures, since my need for space fantasy figures isn't nearly as great as my need for classic fantasy figures were, so I only plan on getting one of these two big guys. I didn't watch the stream so I don't know how big these dudes look compared to the basic figures, but I'm leaning more towards orange dude cause he looks like he has better articulation, and is a bit cheaper. But as others have said, he does look more like a slightly teched up fantasy figure where as the green guy is very much all sci-fi. But Green guy also looks like a giant brick with barely any accessories, so it's still a toss up for me. It's gonna be tough picking a heavy for my Space Pirate crew. >>9302583>>9302586>>9302601Don't mind that troll, everything he says is a lie. The 4H had their Power Lords at every event they went to and promoted them on all the major toy websites. People just don't care about Powerlords, except for maybe like 2 or 3 trolls that post here.
>>9302601So it is more like a character and IP thing than setting and the world?Nothing bad about it. If you want the characters that really belong together, i can understand that. But i can also understand if someone wants to add figures to it that look cool and could be a character from that IP.Kinda like a "canon character" vs "OC/Knock-off character".
>>9302859>like 2 or 3 trolls that post here.Not everyone is a troll. I just like the design of the Power Lords. But i understand that it is an obscure IP.
What I'd really dig is a fully-armored or space-suited 9" figure, possibly with a big helmet. That way you could swap any Mythic or Cosmic head onto the body and, because its armored, you wouldn't have to worry about matching skin tones or textures.
>>9303016Like I kind of wish the figure in pic related was a big boi instead of a 6".
Why are these figures' heads so fucking big? Why go through the trouble of sculpting all this meticulous detail and then give them big goofy Jimmy Neutron heads? I don't understand.
>>9303079i'd be all over this guy if the bottom half of his face wasn't duck shaped
There is just too much shit coming out for my poorfag third world ass to afford. This, Botm Therapod series, ton of shit I've already on pre order. I cannot justify the cost especially with 4h shipping.
>>9303083Goddamn, this thing looks so flippin' cool. And seeing as he's the most expensive figure of the wave AND seems to be a fan-favorite, I'm guessing they'll make more like him. I'm down for it all. Different heads, different colors, maybe some armor variations. Absolute fire.
This shit looks like absolute trash. Big let down.
>>9303109I do wonder how often they'll be returning to alien species they've already made or if they'll Star Wars it and just have hundreds of different races
>>9303128I suppose like the troll figures, they could just swap a few parts here and there. Maybe the next Slogg-like figure won't look like a slime ball.
Anyone else think that four-armed guy looks like Humungousaur from Ben 10?
>>9303128i imagine, by swapping the head and forelimbs, you could make a big dome-headed robot pretty easily
>>9303137I knew it reminded me of something!
>>9303083I love this green motherfucker
>>9303083I like how the texture on his dome makes it look hot and humid af inside. Nice attention to detail.
>>9303214So, about that...I'm not sure if that's what it'll look like on the final figure. I think that might just be for the prototype.
>>9301531Just got done making the a checklist for Cosmic Legions, here is the imgur link:https://imgur.com/pnb2NXYand if anyone wants it, here is the link for the Mythic Legions checklist though there hasn't been any updates:https://imgur.com/a/J9cewzqAlso it doesn't look like the Horsemen will be uploading a picture of the Arethyr pre-order bonus so does anyone have a clean image of that set I could use for the checklist? I'll add it when the in stock sale happens at the start of next month.
>>9302859No one here is a fucking troll you absolute moron. Powerlords is the only line they have ever done where they: -barely announced the line-made some weird experimental crowd funding pre order off their own website to avoid the 10% Kickstarter fees -only advertised it to their forums made up of 1/12 fans-barely any Instagram posts, only contacted a handful of toy websites a couple of days before the funding cutoffWhereas other toylines were:-automatically made, not crowdfunded OR-made using a Kickstarter which gives a ton of added visibility-all have a ton of updates, Instagram posts, ads everywhereYou're a fucking lying piece of shit, kill yourself.
>>9302682Oh my bad, I think I got them mixed up because of the skin tone.
>>9301531New to collecting 4H stuff. If this wave won't release until Q3/Q4 2022, will they still put more waves up for order before then? Hope to see more characters.
>>9303421He looks great, is that loincloth new?
>>9303009Apologies anon, I do realize there are some legitimate fans of the line that are disappointed that it never materialized. But unfortunately, the majority of the traffic we see in these threads related to Power Lords stuff are spergs like >9303275 who just like to throw fits and tell half truths. I'll be honest, I had some Powerlords as a kid (I always thought the main guy was the weirdest toy) and wouldn't have minded grabbing a few figures, but the demand just did not seem to be there. The 4H may not have put their 110% effort into the line, but they brought it with them to all their cons, they had interviews with multiple main stream toy outlets and pushed the sale the same way they pushed all their other sales. But it wasn't enough for them to get people into it for this line.
>>9303438Nah, it's just not used much. It's the same one Jjuno and Knubnick have though.
>>9302859>>9303009>>9303465I also liked Power Lords. I got the humans up until the green ones. Real bummed it ended, I was able to make some real fun figures with other glyos properties.
>>9303422we definitely had new Mythic Legions wave preorders while waiting for previous waves, so I wouldn't be surprised. Can't say for sure though, since we don't know how the release plans now change with two legions lines.Oh and I think on sourcehorsemen.com you can see when Mythic waves were released to get an idea of the general schedule.
>>9303568how is this figure so based? literally nothing else in the wave or mythic legions interests me, this guy looks like he came from a different company
>>9303771They must have stolen it from a eastern toy company
Currently only have Slogg and a bugge in my cart. Currently considering :-Olek in spacesuit (looks cool, if I don't love him the legs and feet might be a good start on a custom Skitarii.-Olek without spacesuit + kragnar (I'm impatient and want to start making lizardmen now) -maybe a random human? I should probably just wait on those. >>9303771He's so different from the rest. His body shape is so much stockier and his gear is so much more industrial. It will negatively impact his articulation for sure, but when you get something as out-there and cool as this I think it's worth it.
>>9303854man i really really feel you on the humans, i think i want to enable a "no humans" policy, because it really seems like a waste of space to have humanoid figures, but the scientist looks good. plus their legion builder prices. but still, i just want aliens.
>>9303854>>9303870I'm not sure if they are actually humans under those helmets, the scientist is obviously an alien but the sentry and engineer could go either way.I'm just going to say the Sentries are robots anyway.
anyone else really looking forward to the next 8 waves being these same molds painted different colors with a different headpiece?
>>9303465Why don't you tell me what half truths I stated you piece of fucking shitOh wait, literally none of themGo count the Instagram posts they made about powerlords prior to the fucking pre order and during and up to the end. Oh the 3 whole websites they put out a boilerplate press release to? Great. Don't forget the one forum post you fucking faggot. Meanwhile mythic legions has had multiple ACTUAL Kickstarters which already had an entire built in fan base since all they fucking made for 10 years was stuff for 1:12 fans. *Literally* every single 1/18 Kickstarter that has been for multiple production figures has funded with many of them funding well over the goal, and a good many of these are literal who companies with not even a tenth of the industry recognition or sculpting talent of the 4H. They had to TRY to get this to fail, and their complete laziness, lack of promotion, and random decision to hold a kickstarter esque campaign on their website that gets no traffic with no updates and not even a live tracker or money or supporters killed the line and they had the fucking balls to say people just don't care about 1/18. Yeah I'm sure no one wants 1/18 when bossfightstudio literally made their company from a six figure Kickstarter. I'm sure no one cares about 1/18 when those absolute dogshit girl superhero figures did so well they got into retail stores off their Kickstarter. Random fucking toys from absolute nobodies like dime novel legends made enough money to pump out figures like fat guy with a beer but NO ONE WOULD HAVE SPENT MONEY ON AN EXPERTLY SCULPTED SCI FI TOYLINE. Where is the half truth you piece of shit. I hope you die in a goddamne fire.
>>9304362Kickstart your own project?
>>9304333this is a prime line to get some mold reuse out of, recoup their costs on weird shit they've done in ML.
>>9304333Cry more, bitch
>>9301644I ordered this guy and 3 other figures and shipping is only $15 and change. What's the issue?
Stands up for sale now
>>9304362dude... you need to touch grass
I have no loyalty to 4H. I only buy their stuff here and there. I remember when they did Power Lords and the way it seemed they went out of their way to not promote it with the effort of anything else they've done. So when some of you try and defend 4H or try to twist facts i can get why it bugs some people. Fact is 4H fucked up hard with Power Lords and their lame excuses don't seem to add up. Like its hard for me to believe their claim that no one cares about the line when they didn't try as hard to the same level as their other projects. That said I can honestly say it wasn't for me and I would not have bought any of them.
>>9304721I don't really get why they put in all that work and then did nothing with it. Like, imagine they did all those Mythic Legions sculpts in 1/18 (which they did), and let's say they tried to fund it and it didn't work out, then they just stopped. Just like with Mythic Legions, people were annoying them to up the size of Power Lords, so why not give that a try? Oh well I guess, it doesn't seem like we'll get these from the 4H anymore, and I'm not sure what other company might be interested in a comprehensive Power Lords line.
The only figure I'm buying is Slogg. Its the only one I really want to own. Like the idea of Cosmic Legions overall though and hope it goes well.
>>9303275yep, 4h are greedy and inept. It's no wonder one of the founders left and are just sticking to a single line.Their alien figures just look like a cheap retooling of their mythic legion stuff and stealing the most generic parts of Power Lords.
>>9303561This pic is pushing me more to get the orange guy over the green guy. A giant four armed fish/reptile space barbarian is certainly an interesting concept. And he seems like he would fit the big bruiser role compared to squishy slime alien. >>9304760They could change the scale of the Legions because the line wasn't officially launched yet. With the fan demand being so clear, they made a decision that ultimately benefited the entire project and worked out for the best. With Powerlords though, this second wave was supposed to fit in with their previously released 4" scale figures. If they changed the scale, it would have just pissed off the previous fans who were pushing for the line to begin with. But I just don't understand how people can say they weren't promoting it though. A simple google search comes up with multiple toy news sites talking about these figures. They had them at SDCC right along side their Legions, and almost every interview with the 4H at the time mentioned Powerlords along side the Legions. It's as you said, why put so much work into these figures if they didn't want them to succeed? Because the 4H certainly didn't want them to fail, because that's just wasted time, energy and especially financial investments.
>>9304847They did complete revamp the style, articulation, and I'd even say aesthetic of the line. It was practically a soft reboot. About the whole advertising thing, for what it was, I feel like they did more or less what they could. There were a few interviews here and there, the story was picked up by most toy sites, etc. I think the big annoyance was that they used KS for a tried and true brand in Mythic Legions for the 2.0 bodies, yet didn't for an unproven line with 4 unique body types. The transparency and wider net that KS casts, especially for a 1/18 line when the scale was so hot on KS at the time, would certainly have been helpful for Power Lords. And that they were trying to get so much out at once rather than have a focused preorder with one 1 or 2 body types is a separate question on its own. So I wouldn't say not enough advertising per se, but certainly wasn't managed as well as it could have been. That they didn't try again despite the time and effort they put into the many prototypes, maybe the license lapsed right there and then, just like with Sectaurs and Zica Toys after their 2nd KS didn't fund.
>>9304760>I don't really get why they put in all that work and then did nothing with it.Because they're retardsThey had success with their Gothitropolis birds and Mythic Legions, and had marginal success selling half waves on their own website. So they believed they were big enough that everyone would just know what they were producing.They never realized that they were only popular with He Man fans. They thought their fans would buy everything they made, except their fans mostly just want knockoff He Mans.So when they launched their not-kickstarter, only a relatively few people who would actually support the line knew about it. Despite advertising at the San Diego Comic Con, the not-KS still hadn't launched and they only told people their primarily funding date, which they had delayed. Since they weren't collecting emails at SDCC, it also meant that there was no way for anyone interested to actually be updated either. Complete failure and lack of understanding at actually being a toy company.And as others have pointed out, because they're greedy, they didn't use Kickstarter, which would have given them high visibility from a TRUSTED crowdfunding platform. 4H instead used their sketchy as fuck website.Want to pretend that their websites aren't sketchy as fuck? Name all the shopify and 3dcartstore stores you regularly buy from that aren't 4H's. Those stores are seen as ripoff data stealing stores by nearly everyone.
>>9304847>But I just don't understand how people can say they weren't promoting it though.Because they didn't promote it with all the major 1:18 sites, and what little they did, it was like a week before the fundraiser was set to end. And these belated marketing attempts were because there were a few people actively pushing 4H to do that.This and the fact no one could actually see how much money they were actually raising, it's no wonder that they couldn't raise enough funds.4H are incompetent.
seems like every wave, we get the same posts.and we get the same results. doubters doubt, and then get left behind as usual, while everyone else enjoys what they get.They really cant let go.
>>9304887>Only popular with He Man fans>Only want knockoff He-manIt's pretty clear at this point that that's nowhere near the case. They certainly so their homage figures here and there, but they've successfully built out a set of characters that sell well and have pretty much nothing to do with He Man. Can you point to what aspect of Mythic Legions figures is especially reminiscent of He Man? Discounting the homages of course.
>>9304946>prove to me that their aiming to sell heman ripoffs without posting the heman ripoffseven ignoring the fact that mythic legions are popular with he-man groups and sites, mythic legions are oversized to fit in with He-Man lines vs even the scale creeped 1:11 Marvel Legends.4H is incompetent the same way someone with autism is. They fail at everything EXCEPT for that one thing that they're very good at.
>>9304847Saying the 4H didn't want PL to fail because of their time spent sculpting everything is like saying someone didn't want their marriage to fail but they stop talking to their wife, make a tinder profile and keep going to more and more massage parlors.
My first Four Horsemen order ever. I wasn't really into mythic legions much, and I missed the gothitropolis train, but this new line got me. Especially big boy Slogg.
>>9304969Make more money than you ever will.
>>9304362Well part reuse is a big part of legions, it's weird to get mad about it now
>>9304887>They never realized that they were only popular with He Man fans. They thought their fans would buy everything they made, except their fans mostly just want knockoff He Mans.Just because you keep saying this doesn't make it true.
>>9301639>>9302204>>9305170It's because of shills like you that we don't have Power Lords, you're eating up any trash the FourHorseShit put out and asking for more. FUCK YOU.
I know we have some new people here since the Cosmic Legions announcement, so just so you are aware, we have had a shitposter here for years who crops up every now and then and tries to start shit. Usually complaing about how Power Lords was handled and that Mythic Legions were changed to 1/12th scale. He isn't interested in actual discussion, he just wants to shit up the thread. He's doing it right now and it's best to just ignore him.He will now proceed to call me a shill and He-Man fan.
>>9305219He's not wrong, many of the 4H fans are mindless boomers that ignore anything beyond their 80s nostalgia.
>>9305170Slogg really does seem like the fan favourite, don't think I've seen anything bad about him.>but this new line got me.Getting in on ground zero of this new wave is a good idea, you're not going to have to deal with the late comer fees Mythic Legion newbies have to deal with.
>>9305219>everyone who doesn't like 4H's cheapshit methods and talks about their long history of incompetence is samefagthat's a pretty cool story.
>>9305223Found the shitposter
>>9305205Where the ever loving fuck did I say anything about parts reuse? Are you genuinely retarded? >>9305219There's like 10 people in here ripping these fags apart, deservedly so. Kill yourself.
>>9305304>10 people in hereDelusion thy name is you, faggot.
>>9305219>Mythic legions changed to 1/12 one week before the Kickstarter after being meticulously planned and advertised for 18 months as a 1/18 lineStill one of the dumbest things ever, all thanks to two dozen whiners that spend all day on the 4H forums. It's really no different than the .01% of the population that blasts their bullshit all over Twitter and now it's all that politics, news, and mega corporations spend all their time and money pandering to.
>>9305307You right faggot, probably way more than that!
>>9305316don't forget their bullshit excuse that their figures will cost no less than $45 at 1:18, because both cost the same amount to make.
>>9305304Oh sorry I replied to the wrong person, it was meant for this guy >>9304333My bad
>+100 posts>"wow the ML general is unusually active, must be discussion for the new line">thread is mostly just arguments about Power Lords and scale
>>93053461/12 was a mistake, these threads would be 100% comfy keanu chungus if it was a 1/18 line
>>9305346this cosmic line is reusing some of the basic designs from power lords and most of teh aliens just look like they were retooled mythic legion, unlike the aliens from the power lords line.Naturally, comparisons were made and the history of their productions was detailed out for some newbies.obviously, that history isn't all that positive.
>>9305362I get that, nothing wrong with it and as someone who only came into Legions within the last year it's interesting to learn about their history but I was also hoping there would be actual discussion about the new stuff since this place is normally pretty dead between wave updates but it's mostly just arguing about how the line isn't Power Lords or bad bait like the other reply to it post.
>>9305335Almost forgot, absolutely hilariousWe can all see from other toylines- and 4H- exactly how much figures will cost. Yeah, decent 1/18 has gotten more expensive and paint costs especially are through the roof on everything. That said most of these figures could easily be released at a $20-30 price point. The bigger guys here that are $50 and $80 and shit would top out at $40. The entire line as a whole would be so much more affordable, the extra space means you could easily actually make displays of legions, and they could actually be making dragons and spaceships and shit for these lines for $200 or less vs not fucking at all. >>9305341All good, I revoke your name from the list of absolute retards ITT
>>9305355Oh you poor child, I feel so bad for you.
>>93053711/12 "fans" are the Funko collectors of the actual toy buyers world.
>>9305368>but it's mostly just arguing about how the line isn't Power Lords or bad bait like the other reply to it post.Because people can't distinguish proper discussion points compared to obvious troll bait. They'd sooner take the latter because it's easier to reply to it.
>>9305377>Because people can't distinguish proper discussion points compared to obvious troll bait.arent you the guy saying everyone who's said anything negative is samefag?
>>9305374It seems to be the other way around tho?
>>9301577Ben10 confirmed for cosmic legions???
>>9305380How delusional are you?Fukno pops are loved by retarded normie masses and are a clear case of sheep mentality1/12 shit has taken over actual toy fandom for much the same reason. I have some 1/12 stuff and have nothing against it in general, but it is by far the most dominant section of actual toys at this point and yet is by and large all identical shit with very little experimentation, innovation, uniqueness or fun of any kind. Theres more people that *only* collect 1/12 shit vs anything else, whereas most other people that buy toys have a variety of stuff. It's the exact kind of cult buy it to buy it mentality thinking that is demonstrated by pop collectors. If it's not a pop they won't buy it. If it's not a 6 inch humanoid figure with 40 points of half useless articulation they won't buy it. And on and on.
>>9305379... this is my first post in this thread since talking about pricey international shipping early on. Was just reading through it and noticed what was responded to and what wasn't.
>>9305377It's not bait. They just launched a new high profile toyline. This gets people noticing and we swing by to see how the line looks and what others are saying about it. It also reminds me of their old lines, how this line got to exist in the first place, and how the 4H have consistently been retards about pretty much everything. They are the most incompetent toy company I can think of that is actually successful. All of this goes through my head when I see the replies here.
>>9305219Imagine typing this unironically
>>9305386>all identical shit with very little experimentation, innovation, uniqueness or fun of any kind.>If it's not a 6 inch humanoid figure with 40 points of half useless articulation they won't buy it. God 1/18 collectors are so up their own ass, no wonder nobody likes you guys.Just because a toy is not in the scale you prefer you make all these assunption that they're no fun and have had no innovation and people only collect them because they feel they must yet I bet if I took any 1/12 toy currently on the market and scaled it down to 1/18 you'd cream your pants.You're just as bad as the 1/12 you complain about because you're a shitty scalefag.
>>9305386All you said can apply to 1/18 and 1/6 collectors, there is nothing wrong with people having their preferred scales and wanting to stick to them.
>>9305414You're a scale fag too and need super sized xbox controller action figures.
I just wanted an updated Power Lords Arkus instead, I was offered five variants of the other guys three times over. So I bought none at all.
>>9305425They did say Arkus would have been coming had the rest succeeded. But ya, funding 4 unique molds with a ton of variants with their own minimum order quantity was a lot to ask for all at once.
Cosmic Legions were a mistake
I just pre-ordered the whole line
1st pointI have no talked about the Outer space men, I talked about Power Lords .But let me say something on the attitude and the behaviour : this is a forum and a forum is a virtual place where people can discuss, analyze, have a critical point of view .So your reaction, like the other user' s one before you, is the reaction of people who do not accept a normally critical discussion.Do I have to defense my opinions ? No , of course.Have you ever read critics' reviews on a movie? The process is the same ( and they are usually more severe than me ) : here we can do a sort of personal review of what is produced and I think it can be helpful and useful for everyone interested in these hobbies .Second point : I referred to the 2 monster aliens ( the orange 12" and the green 9" ), not to the bug alien you have mentioned.There is no doubt that those 2 big creatures are very expensive, and I would have bought them if they were 6 " or 6.5 " tall, in this way they could have been more affordable and above all, they could be characters among the others.Third point : Yes, I like more a " simple " design , instead of a complicated, heavy detailed design. Where is the problem?My hope was 4H could bring on a style similar to Power lords , but they took another direction.I wrote my opinion to see if there were other people to discuss with , as it is used in forum .
I'm not so sure about this wave, guys.Most of them aren't all that thrilling or unique for me, and yet they're still too unique to be generic stand in space men.I love Slogg, but not enough for $80 and half a shelf's worth of space. I kinda like the helmeted bug, and I might try to do some painting on the legion builders, but I'm thinking I'd rather just buy Star Wars black series or cosmic themed Marvel and DC if I just want random sci-fi figures. >>9303258Thanks for the list work. It's much appreciated.
>>9305210I was really into Power Lords until I learned they were only 1/18 scale and the prototype models were upscaled
>>9306185I was fine with the scale, but I'd be perfectly ok with upsizing them to the ~7" scale like the rest of the 4H stuff. I can't remember what my full order was like, but the ones circled below were the ones I was particularly excited about. Very sad we won't be getting them.
>>9303258You are a great asset to the entire community anon, once again thanks for keeping the list for all of us. >>9306180I'm in the same boat, as I don't really feel as compelled to get lots of random generic space people. There's plenty of other options out there and it's not exactly my favorite genre to begin with. My plan is to stick to four figures and keep my purchases of this line very limited. Thankfully they're doing small wave pre-orders instead of the 30+ figure dump Kickstarters, so cherry picking is a lot easier, but I'm sure this line has lots of growth potential in it's future. >>9306185>>9306208I'll be honest, if they made them in their standard scale, I probably would have went in for a few Powerlord figures as well. My 1:18th stuff is dominated by real-ish military figures and vehicles mixed with some Star Wars vehicles and human figures, so crazy space aliens wouldn't really meld well in that scale for me. But I have way more variety in my 1:12 stuff where I could fit in a weird alien or generic space suit dude. Hell, that's the only reason I buy Star Wars Black stuff. I don't care one bit about Star Wars lore, but cool space pirates and armored troopers are always welcome in my collection.
>>9306180My problem is, that there's too many humanoid types, i get their supposed to be combatable with each other, but that doesn't mean the parts have to make sense, as in "a arm has to look like a arm in order to be swappable"too many things have regular limbs and legs, at least the fly boys have chicken feet, more of that.Even Kraggnar is just a big human.And then every legion builder is this wave willl eventually have a premium version, so do i even bother getting a legion builder?Im definitely in for Slogg, one or both of the fly boys, and Olek in his gear. Im just not sure in investing in humanoids.
What are the shipping prices like to the US? I saw on Mattel Creations theyre charging around 12 bucks internationally, and Hasbro charges around 25, so I'm confused why 4H shipping prices have risen so much since I last bought from them (the Arethyr wave) and was curious if the US prices have likewise risen.
So Lizardfolk is pretty much a given for Mythic Legions right? I'm just gonna wait up for Lizardmen wave
>>9306462I wonder if they'll have tails. Given that most of the other animals have them, I'll guess they will. AWOK will also be doing lizard folk eventually, but no tails for any of the animals, so that's a bit unfortunate, but both should be cool. I'm also guessing we'll get an ogre sized dragon man with big wings off of Kragg's body in place of his second set of arms.
Mythic Legions died for this top kek. Fans are either seething or so deep in sunk cost fallacy they’re ordering figures they don’t even want
>>9306783Alien theme is far better than fantasy. Keep coping
>>9306793If I wanted sci-fi I'd just buy Star Wars, Halo, Neca, or even the Lanard walmart toys of alien, & predator. They even had huge ass Iron Giant and Robbie the Robot for only $20 last year.
>>9306349When they were first showing off Zarya Mass Effect edition they kept mentioning "body type diversity" and I kept asking; "Where? That's the same shape and size as all their over females."Looking at her more closely, her arms are a bit more thicker than the standard bare arms, but when they were talking about shapes and forms that wouldn't fit in the Mythic line I was imaging things way fatter, or spindly, or just nonhumanoid; probably like you were.
>>9306793This is a classic cope
>>9306783>Mythic Legions will get less releases>this means more original designs might be made instead of constant mold reuse>scaliefag and other animalistic human enthusiasts will get more figuresWe've had plenty of generic orcs, elves, humans, and dwarves. I still think their goblins suck dick for being fully clothed/armored from the neck down. If they don't have goblin clawed hands and feet then they don't feel like goblins at all.
>>9306180I'm in the same boat. I'm only interested in the reptoids for Mythic Legions customs, and the bugmen should be able to work. The rest? Eh. Not digging the Legion Builders, Zeeri's head and cloak could be useful, the only thing I like about Vargga is her minigun, and the big green Sontaran will kill my shipping.>>9306462I would wait, but we are 6 years into this line, and we are only now getting evergreen legion builders. I may as well grab some lizardman parts now.
>>9307293The orc hands and feet fit on the 2.0 bodies. You can either upgrade the goblins yourself, or hope they do it on future official gobbos.
>>9306783>diedYou sure like being wrong all the time
>>9303568>>9303083>>9301556>>9303771Green guy is fucking based. I wish some company followed this design into some heavy industrial, heavy on implants human figure. There is nothing boring about human figures once you shred humanity away
Sorry about bringing up Power Lords again but maybe this is something to be hopeful for? https://toybook.com/nacelle-power-lords-acquisition/They've yet to do anything, but they're acquiring various nostalgia brands.
>>9307293The reuse of orcs, knights, and goblins will seem far more varied than when these cosmic legions get reused to hell and back. Try to excited about buying an Orange Slogg with a new face mold, or these humans in a 4th, 5th, and 6th variation. I think this line dies pretty quickly.
>>9302056Power Lords were designed by god-tier Wayne Barlowe. You simply can't compete with that.
>>9307576wow i really want that eye brick
>>9307419it all depends on what they do.If it's just funko or super7 type nostalgiafagging, i'm not into that.Modern engineering and a little revamping? I'd be into that.
>>9302056I know this general seems to be a big fan of Power Lords but I dont really think these designs are that good either, I could only see myself buying maybe 2 of them.The Cosmic Legion designs aren't perfect by any means (too fantasy not enough aliens, the humans are lame) but I'd buy more of those over the Power Lord designs presented.
>>9301531So for people buying, do you have any plans for the new parts? I already have a few ideas for customs.An obvious one is turning Gravering Olek into a lizard man for Mythic.I'm going to use the black bare arms from the engineer along with the black goblin head from the stinker tribute figure to make a full dark goblin.And I think I could use Hvalkatar Olek and skeleton limbs to make a Doom style revenant.
>>9307344You knoe what they say about BIG HANDS Goblins...
>>9307727But then the magic is that both have such unique designs will end up liking at least one, even if you hate all others. DESU I would buy two of each line to make a proper set
>>9301574w h y i si t s o l a t e?
>>9307744I'm going to make a mix of the scientist and sentry and then use the unhelmeted head from the 2 pack Atilla to make a human astronaut.
>>9307970Are the scientist and sentry 1.0 bodies? I don't remember them saying what some of the figures were.
>>9308966I believe they are 1.0, Engineer and the space elf are 2.0 for sure
>>9306462It seems like a given, when you look at Kraggnar and Olek. Those bodies are clearly reptilian, and funnily enough, if you look at their tagging you see this...
>>9306783Mythic Legions might get slightly less frequent releases, maybe? But we can already see signs of Mythic Legions-ready sculpts in this release. If this leads to Mythic Legions doing more new parts more often, then I think that's an improvement.
>>9307744I would just wait for the inevitable reuse of those parts in Mythic Legions itself. I can see lizard people popping up in either Poxxus or the Clan Bear waves (maybe the same wave even). But a skeleton spaceman certainly sounds awesome and it's a shame they didn't do something like that in this first wave. >>9308966>>9309315All the males seem to be on the 1.0 build, as I'm pretty sure the pants on blue reptile dude are the same ones that first showed up in the Illythia wave. But Gatling gun lady also seems to have a 1.0 build, which means those bare arms of hers could easily be used on a bulkier fembarian in Mythic Legions.
>>9309493Man, I am totally jealous of your Saurian display. A variety of Lizard folk just seems to work more then a samefacerace of em. As for the frequency of Legions, I remember reading somewhere they planned on doing something like two waves of each per year, but also having a constant Legion Builder presence on their shop. So the Mythics will keep coming, though thankfully their assault will be less frequent. But the Cosmic will be coming just as frequently, so the overall barrage just won't stop.
>>9309493Yo, where is that croc mount from?
>>9309543Lizzie from that dumb Rampage movie. It's an extremely cheap toy, but it's marked up to insane aftermarket prices these days the legs pivot at the shoulder and the mouth opens through an action feature, and that's all the articulation it has.
>>9309493That's a cool looking lizard squad, have you got pictures of the rest of your shelf? I love seeing anons collections.
We got past the first benchmark though this thing is kinda pointless without being able to see a number going up.Did they say they'd announce the bonuses before the waves release or is it a surprise until they come out?
>>9309493It also won't suck as much to have fewer Mythic waves if we have legion builders in stock at a regular basis.
>>9309744I'd have to imagine they at least tell us which figures will specifically get bonuses. It's an incentive to buy specific figures, so I doubt they wouldn't say. I'm personally hoping for some more weapons for Kraggnar. The damn shipping is too high so I haven't gone in yet, but if he got more I might put in some bucks. It's so high that I'm annoyingly thinking of going all in (because apparently shipping all of these figures and all the accessories is cheaper than just 4 figures) and selling off everything I don't want to make up the cost.
>>9309822>I'm personally hoping for some more weapons for Kraggnar.Same, he's got four arms so he needs four weapons.Something I want is helmets heads for some chatacters, I think thay could help with the issue some people are having where the characters are too unique to buy multiple of.>because apparently shipping all of these figures and all the accessories is cheaper than just 4 figuresYeah shipping is weird like that, I never really understood how it worked.
>>9309551Lizzie's a big girl, kind of simple but very fun to mix with the Legions. She was actually sculpted by the 4H so despite being a *very* cheap feeling toy, she looks fantastic. That's partly the reason she's so hard to come by. A figure that good deserves more than being a part of a store exclusive throw away toyline to an awful video game based summer blockbuster starting The Rock™ playing The Rock™.
Newfag to /toy/ here. Did I miss the boat on this? Is there anyway to get these after they have sold out?
>>9309907Jap statue doesn't go here. Check in either some kind of Yu-Gi-Oh threat or a Jap board.I hope you can get it.
>>9309907Yeah you might want to check /a/s buyfag thread or /jp/
>>9309724Hey thanks! Moving stuff around after putting some new shelves up so not everything looks great right now, but here's a pic with just the ML shelves. >>9309862Oh wow, I had totally forggotten 4h sculpted Lizzie, Certainly, don't mistake my comments for her not being a very well sculpted figure, she's just pretty cheapo-movie-tie-in compared to most toys I would normally buy.
>>9309941>Gwendolyne with custom cape on horseback>Not-Elite Knight figure>Knight builder with custom straps>Smaller figure on Dewback....god dammit Anon, are you me? Like, you're pulling out a lot of stuff I did in a similar...though maybe inferior...manner lol. Hell, I even had the same bookshelf for the longest time and only just recently upgraded to something more visually appealing (but gives me far less space). Your display looks fantastic though and I'm jealous of how good you make figures look, even though I have them myself.And I'm not disputing how cheap-o Lizzie feels, she really is a rickety brick of a figure that was produced on a shoestring budget. The fact she looks so amazing is a testament to the 4H's skill where they can make a figure from something so awful be a must have collectible. Dwarf on Dewback related
He looks pretty good but I'm afraid how well the fuzz is gonna hold up over time.
>>9310900Fucking hate toy bro
>>9310907Neat.Do you think the pouch from MOTUC Mossman would fit in the ML homage?
>>9310900Walter Hagen and his kid did a livestream on facebook with the 2 new tribute figures.He said Moss Man was more of a display figure than a play, partswap, or photograph one. He was shedding all over the place.Also the flocking was more rubbery spongy then fuzzy.
>>9309941>Best looking faction is the lizard men top right>0 mythic legions and only 1 toy sculpted by 4H Unironically what did he mean by this
>>9311763That means you're a fan of Marvel Legends.
>>9301531>We are excited to announce that the first level unlock for Cosmic Legions - Hvalkatar: Book One has been met! Introducing the Cosmic Legions Commemorative Coin.
A commemorative coin? Seems they kind of missed the mark here. Kickstarted stretch goals were things like alt heads and weapons, or something significant to go with the figs. A coin just feels like junk drawer filler.
>>9312049I THOUGHT YOU WERE JOKING. OMG.It is a pretty fun little addition though. The fucking shipping though. It's not even the price, it's the principle of paying nearly equal amounts for the products and the shipping.
>>9311962Brandfagging is sad.
>>9312144Not that anon but how is that brand fagging? Those lizard figures are marvel legends.
>>9312257He is being a fag about brands, thus brandfagging.
>>9312319You're in a thread for a specific brand. Why are you here?
>>9312319By saying what brand those figures are from?
>>9312257I am that anon, and I find his comments to be very confusing. Like, am I being insulted for knowing about major toylines? It's some low quality trolling if you don't even know what the hell the troll is even on.
>>9311962That mean 10 shelves of your expensive horseshit look worse than $12 Walmart crap
>>9312909>>9311763Those frilled Lizard figures are over a decade old, so I guarantee you you can't get them for any cheaper than Mythic Legions these days. They also have a very cheap feeling plastic sheen to them, their leg joints are plentiful but don't hold poses very well so most of the articulation is wasted, and their tail is a stupid action gimmick that prevents you from reposing it. I had to cut the button to activate it off with snippers or else it protrudes half an inch out of their hip. Also, their hands have a hinge, but they don't close far enough to hold weapons properly, so I have to use blue tack or just balance them in there. They aren't bad figures, but they aren't very good ones either.Source: I'm the one who posted them. Comparing mass-produced lines with wide distribution to stores against independent lines like this isn't really productive or fair. The reptilian bodies that 4h has shown off are really exciting and I'm looking forward to growing my lizard hordes when they finally release as ML.
>>9313076What is this rad demon?
>>9312909Hasbro is a garbage company.
>>9313373Arethyr, coming to the store sometime in octoberhes out already for those that preordered him
>>9313402>ArethyrThanks>>9313076Nice post. The croc mount is really great, what is the guy at top on him? Do he have a button on his side or it's some kinda of weapon?
>>9313425It's a Spiderman Ultimate Lizard toy from Toybiz, the button is for his tail attack.
>>9313402If you are anywhere in Asia I can ship him to you for retail price plus shipping. I accidentally ordered an extra. Itll probably be cheaper than the instock sale. Let me know if you or anyone else in Asia is interested once the in stock sale is over and if you couldn't find one. I check the thread regularly.
I got my first green orc today, decided to make him a weapon master>>9313076I love how manic he looks without the visor on
>>9313425Thanks. That's the button I was talking about in , I forgot I had only cut it off of one of my lizards, need to snip that one off too. It makes his tail "swing" (really, it rotates at it's base about 90 degrees, more or less)>>9313698That orc looks great! And yeah, Arethyr in general is just a really awesome toy. I love that his face is so detailed under the visor.
>>9313076Nice breakdown faggot, but I already own literally all of them as well, I don't need to be told what they are or how they work.
>>9314046Wow settle down cool guy.
>>9314056>Assuming someone's gender>In the year of our lord 2021yikes
This motherfucker is going to work great with either Legions as a fantastic monster or an alien, and at $20 it really lends itself to buy a few of them.McFarlane Warhammer 40,000 Tyranid Genestealer
>>9314219I was thinking the same thing when I saw it, I'm also hoping that the head of the artist proof version gets a painted release in the future since it would be good for a Mindflayer custom.
>>9314219>>9314231Depending on the size of the neck joint and shoulders it might be possible to swap parts around with legion pieces
2nd tier unlocked. This is much better than a coin!! Also, anyone else hoping that mask fits onto Mephitor?
>>9314424Where's the list of tiers/goals?
>>9314424I'm getting anglerfish vibes here. Would be awesome if it was gitd.
>>9314424>anyone else hoping that mask fits onto Mephitor?Oh that would be cool but I think his snout might get in the way
>>9314428They're just revealing them as they get to them. It's technically all arbitrary since we have no clue what 'goals' they're actually hitting, if even.
>>9314090Wow settle down gay guy.
>>9314498I think we are hitting some kind of goals, only because if we weren't it would make more sense to space out the announcements in order to keep interest though I think said goals are low, or low for the standards of a kickstarter style campaign.
>>9314424Oh sweet, she's one of the four I planned on getting, but the only one of the human sized figures to not have a mask. I guess that problem is now solved. Now my next issue is trying to figure out what I could possibly use as a ship for these guys. Options are already limited for these guys, but throw in the big orange fishface guy, and space will get pretty tight real fast.
What is your head cannon for Slogg?
>>9314549Just give them Super Bombad Racing style mini cart ships!
>>9314549Almost like this scale is fucking terrible for anything other than figures. Oh you want a ship? Oh you want a prison playset? Fuck offTrash scale will always be trash And so are the people who buy it lmao
>>9314616Either I'll keep the warden thing or make him a Shadow Broker, an information trader.
>>9314548>I think we are hitting some kind of goalsWell that's the thing, we don't know what these goals might be, we don't know how the preorders are actually doing, so we can think we are (which is the purpose of this tracker, to make it feel similarly to a KS, just without any of the transparency), but we really have no idea.
>>9314549If you're aiming for a freestanding ship I'm not sure you'll find what you're looking for, but you could certainly so a ship hallway display on a shelf or something, could just cut out parts out of foam or plastic sheets to make it.
>>9314621That's amazing. I guess everyone wanted a piece of Mario Kart. >>9314638I agree that this scale is best focused on the figures themselves. It worked really well for the Mythic side of things, because there was just so many other compatible lines and accessories out there in this scale that you could really make some fantastic custom figures with only a modicum of effort. It also makes the larger class figures look absolutely imposing with how big and well detailed they are. You start throwing in horses and other mounts in this scale and the figures alone just demand attention. But for space/tech related figures, I do try to tend more towards the 1:18 stuff. I picked up one of the Joytoy Maintenance teams and I plan to use em as some sort of space transporters. Only I'm having just as much trouble finding them a ship too, no one really makes super large vehicles anymore (well, outside of Chap Mei's Plane/Sub mold). I'm leaning towards grabbing the Vintage Collection Slave 1 and just modding it into more of a transport vessel. But even that will have trouble making room for a crew of six. >>9314672I totally plan on doing that kind of stuff in the future, I just need to finish renovating the basement (probably won't happen for a few years though). Once that's done I'll be able to move my collection down there permanently and will have no problem making full sized, long lived displays. But for this crew, I might use pic related as a base and just work from there. It's a huge ship, but not too big to be picked up and carried. Though again, giant orange dude is gonna pose a challenge. Maybe I'll just leave the thing as an open top space boat or something.
>>9314616Without having read the official fluff, my head cannon is that Slogg is a chef on a space station, but he has a side hustle as a private detective. Idk the figure is giving me this vibe thats a mix of Bourdain and Eddie Valiant.
>>9315251You're gonna need to get him a fedora and have a custom trench coat sewn for him! Maybe a cigar and a wooden desk.
>>9315251>>9315274Stop making me want to buy the most expensive figure in the line.
so reptiles are pretty much guaranteed to be in.this is from the early customs collab 4H did with a few customizers.
>>9320232Yeah it seems obvious, though I want heads with snouts.It would be cool if they had a new style of armor too, like tribal/Aztec style stuff
>>9320232Speaking of that they also showed off that skull from the original teasers being used on a custom so it looks like we might be getting space skeletons
Just picked up my first ML figure, the deluxe Arethyr. Was hard not to just start buying a whole bunch, but looking forward to getting this dude in and seeing how I like them in hand.
>>9320657Welcome to the rabbit hole, beware of a slippery slope.You picked a decent time to join, there is going to be a in stock sale of the Arethyr wave on October 1st
>>9320232Honestly looks like shit. Give these guys fucking dino heads, not orc faces with scales.
>>9321452The "rule" of their custom stream was they could only use parts from legions, no outside stuff, otherwise they probably would have used more reptilian heads.
>>9321266Sweet, thanks for the info. Thinking of picking up the horse to go with him
>>9301531Well? How does it feel that Michael just BTFO'd the Horsemen and proved they didn't actually sculpt Motu Classics?
>>9323933Just ignore it.
>>9323937Okay.Hey so, I know it might be a bit soon to ask, but when do you guys think we'll see the next wave released? Think it'll be in the next quarter or will we have to wait until next year?
>>9323949We're probably get the next wave up for preoder during their Legions Con or whatever it is in November. I think I'm just going to skip the first space wave entirely, and split the money between Arethyr stock sale and the next Mythic preorder.
>>9324063Oh I meant like physical release of the next wave like illythia or all stars, not preorders but that's good information to know.Sorry I'm a bit of a newfag to the line.
>>9324105Always check the official websites.http://www.sourcehorsemen.com/https://store-horsemen.myshopify.com/The main page of the shop has Production updates on the bottom>ALL-STARS 4 - production is wrapping up/estimated shipping Q4 2021Looks like we'll get All Stars 4 next. IF we're very lucky they might start shipping out to us in end of December; with January and February being more likely, since that's about when All Stars 3 was being shipped out.
>>9321452Same, really hoping they don't go flat-faced reptiles, though it would be trivial to fix them with marvel lizard heads I guess. Related I guess: it's remarkably hard to find a croc head scaled correctly for this custom. Most crocodile toys are too small.
>>9325892Neca Leatherhead is probably too cartoony for what you're looking for.
The 3 cosmic legion builders are now available in bundles of 12 for $275, and 24 for $550.https://store-horsemen.myshopify.com/collections/all>Note that bundles are straight packages of one figure and various Legion Builders cannot be combined into custom bundles.
Holy fuck why is the articulation on these things so terrible? Are they in too deep to give these figures the ability to two hand anything other than a polearm?
>>9329444Fags only buy mythic legions because they feel they need too because they're in too deep to back out now. That's what happens when you buy from the scamhorsemen.Soon NECA will btfo them with their DnD line and these fags will get mad and probably try to troll the board.
>>9329631NECA is coming out with a DnD line??? good lord finally i can stop collecting this "action" figures
>>9329719Yep!!!! You can feel the scamhorsemen shaking in their boots that NECA is about to destroy their shitty line.I can't wait to see the fags in this thread cry that their """"action figures""""" are now obsolete.It's too late for them though, they're banned from buying NECA figures, they don't deserve them after what they did.
>>9329444>Are they in too deep to give these figures the ability to two hand anything other than a polearm?yeah, pretty much, the issue is that every joint is also a modular port, which is why they don't do double joints. Butterfly joints would be awesome though.
>>93294442.0s can double hand stuff
>>9329444>>9329631>>9329719>>9329724You guys should be embarrassed. I'm excited for the NECA figures but the way you guys type like little shits annoys me. Not to mention with how similarly typed, it looks like one guy providing us a monologue.
>>9329925>double joints>Butterfly jointsmeme articulation
I'm all in on Mythic Legions, but I still can't talk myself into ordering Cosmic Legions yet. They look cool, but I'm just not that big into space stuff. But if I skip on it, I'm afraid I might regret it later.
>>9330024This thread is just chock full of bad takes, isn't it.
>>9330036>hi I only collect 1/12 action figures
>>9330032We still got awhile before the POs close so you don't need to rush yourself anon.And eventually there will be a in stock dale for them too so you will have another chance and I'm sure Cosmic will have All Star waves too.
>>9330040Mythic Legion figures are too oversized to be 1:12 scale. They're whatever scale Mattel's collector He Man figures were.
>>9330045Yeah they fall into 1:10 I believe, hell most western figures (and imports that try to scale with them) aren't technucally 1:12 either iirc, only figma and figuarts are true 1:12.
>>9330053I should correct myself, figma and figuarts aren't the only lines to be true 1:12, there are a lot more, both eastern and western (typically in the model kit or doll house scene).
>>9330633Already? This threads moves so slow
Anyone else kinda bummed that Cosmic went with a more 'modern' sci-fi look instead of it being based on more fantastical retro style stuff? No? Just me? Ok.
>>9329985Are you serious?
