I was out of town this week and unable to get the news about the Four Horsemen’s Raven Kickstarter up on time. Now, I knew I’d get to it once I got back, but what I didn’t know was by the time I did post it the project would be nearly two-thirds funded! And I’m only a day late.
Now, I don’t normally highlight too many Kickstarters here on IAT, but there are a couple reasons I have to point this one out. First, it’s the Four Horsemen. They’re stand-up guys, toy legends, and, hey, if it weren’t for them, there probably wouldn’t even be an IAT. So, they’re kinda important around these parts.
The second reason is much more selfish. You see those two birds up there in the teaser pic? The White Raven & the Owl? Those are two of my most desired Raven variants and they ended up as stretch goals. We’re still impressively 40% on the way to that Owl after one day, so I remain hopeful, but I still gotta spread the word: Noisy wants the Owl. Tell everyone.
Here’s the initial details about the Kickstarter:
FOUR HORSEMEN STUDIO’S GOTHITROPOLIS RAVENS KICKSTARTER
Four Horsemen Studios’ Gothitropolis Ravens Kickstarter is a project to ensure that our Gothitropolis Raven action figure series can go into full production, and this fan favorite group of figures can end up in your hands!
What are these cool figures? The Raven and his compatriots are the newest figures in our Gothitropolis line of highly detailed six inch scaled action figures. The Raven was chosen by fans as the winner of our FANtastic Exclusive project which allows fans to vote on all aspects of our next figure. Our team here have spent hundreds of hours of meticulously sculpting, fabricating, and painting to create the spectacular prototypes for this line. This project is an absolute labor of love for everyone involved here at Four Horsemen Studios.
These will be approximately 6” tall (which puts them in scale with previous Gothitropolis releases like our Scarabus and the TimeKeeper figures). He has 34 points of articulation. He’s got two sets of interchangeable feet (one set in an open “attack pose” and the second set has a “battle grip” for wielding weapons). He has this detailed scythe/staff weapon and a signature belt loaded with supplies and relics. This figure has an intricate paint scheme that contains hundreds of paint applications.
We’ve created 12 prototypes in total here at the studio based largely on fan requests for various species of birds and other fantasy creatures. Each variant features a unique head sculpture, and it’s own gorgeous paint scheme that perfectly reflects the character’s species and theme.
For the initial Kickstarter we are starting with six figures in total. Of course we didn’t want to shut out the possibilities for all 12 figures, so we are offering the remaining 6 figures as stretch goals.
