The Four Horsemen sent out an update answering your questions after New York ToyFair 2015.
We’re now back at our offices recovering from an eventful showing at the New York International Toy Fair, and we wanted to check in with some updates and answer some questions that have come up since the show.
For those that don’t know, Toy Fair is an event where toy companies from across the globe set up to show off the products that they have in store for the remainder of the year. This was our first showing there, and we were excited to bring out Mythic Legions along with our bird figures, which going forward will be sold under the Mythic Legions brand. We wouldn’t normally unleash this much information on our fans and customers at once, but in this case we needed to show a year’s worth of potential product to attending distributors and buyers.
We’ve seen that the rebranding has caused some confusion regarding the birds themselves as well as the Mythic Legions Kickstarter. First and foremost the Mythic Legions Kickstarter campaign is not becoming the “Mythic Legions/Mythic Legions Birds” Kickstarter. We are considering dropping one or two birds into the Kickstarter campaign to celebrate the rebranding (the Eathyron figure, in particular, has been planned into this line for a long time now), but we want the focus to remain on the current series of figures. We also don’t want to double the cost of the line for our backers either! If there is an outcry of requests asking for more birds, then we may take another look at the idea, but we don’t think that’s where this is going.
We also wanted to use this update to once again say a huge “THANK YOU!!!!!!!” All of the support from our Mythic Legions Kickstarter backers has been overwhelming! Although we have less backers so far this time around, the dollar per backer amount is considerably higher. And for that, we just couldn’t be more grateful!
Finally, we wanted to let you know that this coming Friday should be a big day for the Mythic Legions Kickstarter! We are planning to have some exciting news including a figure reveal, some newly available items, and a bit of a restructuring to the stretch goals! So please keep an eye out for the update, which we should have up by 12:00 noon EST on Friday.
So again, thank you so much for all of the support and kind words!
