It’s been a good week for toys!
I’ve sculpted a lot of stuff with my friends, the legendary @four_horsemen_studios over the years, and they’ve leant their skilled hands to a TON of amazing franchises. Of all the things they’re known for.. Masters of the Universe might be #1 .
I’ve only had the privilege of sculpting one figure for that line.. and she just showed up on my doorstep. Granita!
When I started on the project, I wasn’t as super familiar with her as I was with the more OG MotU characters like HeMan, Skeletor, #Beastman etc.. or even the other stone-based figures,Rokkon and Stonedar... but this is MotU we’re talking about, I’ll take what I can get!
Granita was a real challenge, particularly when it came to incorporating her folding stone transformation! Also, I had to sculpt.. So. Much. Stone.
The thing I love the most about sculpting collectibles and toys is that with each new figure, I get to relive a part of my childhood. Be it for #gijoe or #dccomics or #starwars or #motu etc... when Im working and find myself vividly remembering being a wild, curly haired(sniff, I remember having hair!) ten year old, playing in the dirt with my friends and cousins with our plethora of actions figures.. waging massive endless battles.. ahhh..that’s the real stuff! Probably the whole reason I do what I do today.
Strongwilled and bold, Helena Ironsworn was born the daughter of a knight of the Kingdom of Little Falls. Wanting to follow in her father’s footsteps, Helena trained with a sword from an early age, oblivious to the reality that no woman had ever been named a full knight within the kingdom. Helena’s dedication to her cause only increased when her father died, and she eventually entered a tournament hoping to showcase her skills to the king and his court. Initially refused entry into the contest, it was Prince Eric who interceded on Helena’s behalf, naming her his champion for the tournament and ensuring that she would be able to participate. Prince Eric’s faith in Helena’s sword arm was well placed, for she fought off all her opponents and claimed victory, becoming the first fully sworn female knight of the kingdom in the process. Helena’s dedication has since inspired many other young girls to “take up the sword” in the kingdom of Little Falls, and the good King Treadaway has passed a royal decree that has opened up his army to all those “who are willing and capable to serve”, ushering in an age of tolerance and equality within the kingdom and helping to strengthen the love of his people, and the strength of his army, in the process. #mythiclegions#customfigure#fourhorsemenstudios#fourhorsemen#actionfigures#fantasy#toyphotography#dungeonsanddragons#adventofdecay#knight#knightbuilder#gadriel#my_version_of_mythoss

An update to an older display.
Overseen by the spirit of her mother, Nicah seeks control over the powers of life and death. While seeking to become a powerful necromancer in her own right, she's found herself captivated by time magic, which may hold the key to mastering death.
Ignore the strings. It's like 60s era Doctor Who. 😀
There is nothing so powerful as a warrior who fights with true belief in the righteousness of their cause. A cleric of Bahamut the dragon god of justice, Marion Clearspirit travels the realm seeking out injustice and tyranny. She is a champion for the downtrodden and helpless and she has committed her life to making the realm a better place by helping those who cannot help themselves. Like the deity she serves, Marion loves music and stories, which helps explain the company that she has chosen to travel with. Accompanying the justice-seeking cleric on her travels is the bard Jhonthan Seven Hills, as well as the runaway elven prince Raloven the Wanderer. Together, these three make an unlikely, but formidable party that bring both safety and good cheer to the appreciative souls that meet them on their travels. #mythiclegions#customfigure#fourhorsemenstudios#fourhorsemen#actionfigures#fantasy#toyphotography#dungeonsanddragons#adventofdecay#cleric#my_version_of_mythoss
My first 2 boxes of Advent of Decay have arrived! I actually have 2 “All Ins” coming, plus a few extras on top of those sets. The “All Ins” come split into 2 boxes, and interestingly I received both “box 2” sets today, so I actually only have half the set in hand, but I have two of each of those figures! At first glance, these came out incredible (did we expect anything less?). Can’t wait to have time to pop these open later and start playing, and can’t wait for those other boxes to arrive so I can complete the wave! Thanks to @four_horsemen_studios for another incredible release of Mythic Legions action figures! #mythiclegions#fourhorsemenstudios#fourhorsemen#adventofdecay#kickstarter#actionfigures#newtoyday
Have you ever danced with the devil’s Spawn in the pale moonlight?
Do you have a favorite crossover? Or is there a certain crossover book you’ll be looking for on Nov 4th at the ECC? I’ve always found inter publisher crossovers pretty exciting. It kind of makes perfect sense that these two brooding alley dwellers would break the boundaries of universes and publishers to cross paths.
Reinald was once a high ranking commander in the army of Attila Leossyr. Injured during an orc ambush and left for dead by the soldiers he fought beside, he was eventually found by a small scouting party from the barbarian tribe of Attus the Noble Bear. Bringing the wounded warrior back to their camp, these barbarians nursed Reinald back to health, gaining a loyal friend and soldier in the process. Swearing allegiance to the Noble Bear, Reinald taught the barbarians modern battle tactics and strategy, making a formidable army that much more powerful with the introduction of these new methods to defend their borders and destroy those who would seek to bring evil into the Realm. #mythiclegions#customfigure#fourhorsemenstudios#fourhorsemen#knight#barbarian#actionfigures#fantasy#dungeonsanddragons#toyphotography#my_version_of_mythoss
