After we came across the interview with The Four Horsemen over at ItsAllTrue.net, we had emailed the Horsemen about the interview and the new decision to make Mythic Legions figures in 4″ scale as opposed to the higher priced 6″ scale.
Since the Horsemen will be doing the Mythic Legions in 4″ scale, we had asked them if playsets will be possible as this would not be an option for them to do it in 6″ scale.
That’s one of the main reasons we’ve decided after all is said and done, to do the Mythic Legions at a 4″ scale. We want to be able to actually make these things legions of figures with oversized characters, beasts for them to ride on, items like catapults and even playlets, bases and environments.
The Horsemen also stated that these will not be available to pre-order until after The Ravens are shipped out to people.

Here is a recap of our recent toy reviews:
Nerd Rage Toys has just listed The Classic Thundercats 1985 Mumm-Ra’s Tomb & Mumm-Ra action figure playset. Unfortunately there was no Thundercats announcements this year at New York Toy Fair other then an update we had posted during our interview with Icon Heroes, but if you are a fan then we highly recommend picking this up!
Mumm-Ra’s Tomb is in good condition with moderate wear. The stickers show minor wear. The trap door spins freely. The detachable sides appear to have been screwed in place and show some damage where the clips are.
Mumm-Ra is in great condition with no visible wear. All joints are tight.
Toyguru has posted a new video showing Extendar, Battle Lion and Light Hope, the exclusive figure that comes only to Club Etheria subscribers.
Club Etheria is our new limited six-figure subscription celebrating the 30th Anniversary of She-Ra. Along with Light Hope, it’s packed with collection-completing figures like Madam Razz and Broom, Double Mischief, Entrapta, and three more to be announced. Club Etheria is on sale only through 3/10/14 at 11:59pm PT so don’t wait!
Nick.com/turtles gives you an advanced airing of next Friday’s episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles episode titled “Wormquake.” On Friday March 14th, they will have a special showing of this episode if you want to wait until then.
Facing Shredder’s deadly new assassin, Leo must decide whether to risk his brother’s lives or ask for Splinter’s help. Donnie must put aside his rivalry with Casey in order to uncover a new Kraang plot.
Let us start off this review by saying why would Mattel start the minis line with a 2013 SDCC Exclusive Masters of the Universe Classics Mini He-Man & Skeletor Figures, then continue the line as a 50% scaled down releases of Battle Armor He-Men and Mer-Man? The answer – Toyguru stated that it’s to ensure the longevity of this line. We will give Mattel that. With prices going up each year, it is understandable that Mattel wants to keep prices as low as possible for fans, while keeping the same quality to each new release.
However, that is not the case here and we think that Mattel should have offered the SDCC 2013 release as also scaled down by 50% instead of what happened here. It could be poor planning with the first release as Mattel might have decided after He-Man and Skeletor were sculpted, to scale them back even further. Whatever the reason, the start of this line was poorly planned and fans are left with He-Man and Skeletor now twice as big as the 2014 releases.

Keel-Haul originally came with the U.S.S. FLAGG playset back in 1985 and to this day that vehicle remains to be one of the best playsets ever made. With the release of Keel-Haul, this is probably the closest fans will get to a U.S.S. FLAGG as retailers don’t want to order large vehicles due to rising costs. Last year, Hasbro stated that a FLAGG would cost an estimated $800 USD shelf price.
However, in our New York Toy Fair 2014 reports, we found that Round 2 is bringing back cardboard diorama’s starting with Marvel’s Baxter Building. So if Hasbro were to do a U.S.S. FLAGG and have to keep prices low and retailers to want to order it, it would have to be made out of cardboard.
