February 2013 - It's that time of the year again when throngs of toy fans, toy creators and toy buyers worldwide converge onNew York City for the International Toy Fair. For the third year in a row during this time, the art gallery TT Underground and Beerlao will be hosting the Four Horsemen as they bring you Toypocalypse 3: ExtraTOYrrestrial!!
This is the Four Horsemen's third annual gallery show featuring their work past, present and future, and this year Toypocalypse revolves around their newest licensed property - The Power Lords! The Power Lords was a toy line from the 80's that seemed to be a bit ahead of its time, but it has a very loyal fan base that have been hoping for its return. With the launch of the Power Lords website (http://www.PowerLordsReturn.com), it was announced that the Four Horsemen now have the license to create new Power Lords toys and other merchandise, and this show will reveal early prototypes of some of the upcoming Power Lords characters!
December 2012 - "The Mayan year 220.127.116.11.0 has begun. As foretold in 669 AD by the famous prophesy carved into Monument 6 in the Mayan site of Tortuguero, this date signals the return of the "Bolon Yokte Ku" -- The Nine Lords of Power. It is therefore, with great reverence, that the Four Horsemen of the Toypocalypse hereby proclaim the return of the Nine Power Lords and reveal the identity of a Tenth who dwells among us and has the power to save us all."
Four Horsemen Toy Design Studios are proud to announce the return of Power Lords: The Extra-Terrestrial Warriors action figure line.
It's been 30 years since world-reknowned sci-fi artist Wayne Douglas Barlowe originally designed the ground-breaking Power Lords toy line released by Revell. Four Horsemen Toy Design have just acquired the Power Lords license and signed Wayne Barlowe as a creative consultant to help bring the Power Lords back in action figure form.
February 2012 - First, we wanted to thank everyone who attended and participated in Toypocalypse 2: Futuretro. Those of you who were able to submit a custom Outer Space Men figure - we couldn't be more grateful to you. Thank you SO much! We think the show was a tremendous success and we had a blast doing it. We can't wait to do it again next year! We're already stressing out about what we're going to try to do to top it.
The very first Cosmic Creators series of figures and special edition print did incredibly well at the show and we wanted to let everyone know that if you didn't get the chance to attend, there will be a very limited amount of them made available on Store Horsemen this Monday night (February 20th) at 9pm est.
As at the Toypocalypse 2: Futuretro show, these four unique figures and incredible print all together will cost $125.00 per set (plus shipping & handling), and once they're sold out, they're gone for good!
