All of you who were involved with the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay Kickstarter campaignand first Store Horsemen pre-order have been VERY patient with the delays we’ve had during the production of this wave of figures, and we want to thank you for that. We’re toy collectors ourselves, so we know how exciting it can be to wait for a new release of figures, and then how disappointing it can be to hear that they’ve been delayed. Well, your long wait is almost over, Legionnaires!
If you’ve been following our posts on the Four Horsemen Toy Design Instagram page, you’ve seen that we’ve been periodically posting photos that the factory’s been sending us as they’re working out the package design for the figures. Just in case you missed those, there are many images of those Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay packaging samples below, and we’ll be posting more over the next week or so. Please pay no attention to missing parts or figures that look incorrect to you in these pics. They just grabbed figures to use as placeholders, and many of them are unfinished. These pics are ONLY for approvals or revisions to packaging.
So, if you know anything about action figure production, then you’ll know that us receiving those images means that production on Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay is nearly complete and the figures will be boxed up and shipped from our factory to our warehouse in the very near future. We just got word from our factory that, unless they run into any further snags, they expect the production of the figures to be fully completed by July 20th, and the figures should ship from the factory by July 23rd! For us, that means we have to start making room in our warehouse because we’ve only got a few weeks after that before they’ll arrive here and begin shipping out to all of you. We can never tell an exact date of arrival from the factory to our warehouse because a lot of factors are involved. Delays leaving the Chinese port, shipping traffic, inclement ocean weather, and delays because of inspection at the US port are all possible reasons for a shipment’s slowed arrival. But, the average shipping time is about 4 to 7 weeks. So we’re still on track to start shipping these things to you in late Summer/early Fall 2018 as long as the shipping gods approve. Keep your fingers crossed, Legionnaires. The Advent of Decay draws nigh…
