Four Horsemen - Figura Obscura

Mon Dec 06, 2021 11:51 am

I figured since this is going to be an offshoot from the Mythic/Cosmic Legions that it should have its own thread.


So far in the line we have Krampus

This line seems like it has potential. I wonder if a Cthulhu might be an option for this? Just trying to imagine creatures that could fall in this line...Sasquatch? Chupacabra? Greys? Not sure which ones work well with the existing tooling. An Ogre sized Cthulhu would be amazing though.

Man that Krampus looks great. But of course, just now finding out about it and it's sold out. Oh well.

$50 seems a bit rich for my blood too. Still, cool stuff.

A bit expensive for what it is. I agree, an Ogre sized Cthulhu would be awesome.

It was actually almost 70 after their ridiculous shipping.

Had him ready in the cart and then saw it was $67. Just couldn't justify it in my head.

I'm so freaking excited about this figure! Yeah, he's super pricey, but he's literally been one of my dream figures since I first learned about the legend well over a decade ago! The Horsemen have hinted that they will do other versions of him in the future, so there will be other opportunities for folks who missed out (maybe it will be an annual thing). Really happy about that because in the Alpine folklore, the Krampus isn't a singular entity, but a type of creature that aides St Nicholas by punishing the naughty kids while he rewards the good. Much like our folklore has Santa having elves and reindeer, St Nicholas has many different Krampussen taking care of business for him!

The 4H mentioned being aware of different variations to the Krampus myth. They made it sound like there will be variations to the figure down the road. This particular deco and loudout will be unique though.

Not sure who else will be in this line. A lot of Krampus is reuse, which is the 4H MO. Taking into account their reuse, I’m not sure who else they can make. Certainly they could create something all-new and just reuse some of it in MyL and CL.

Cythulu is possible. A lot of cryptos could work given appropriate parts availability. So much stuff could just be nudged into Mythic or Cosmic Legions though.

I think Mothman would be easy using the CL Sphexxian wings


Cthulhu would be amazing

There are so many entities that they could go with. Witches and Warlocks that fit outside of ML, Space Pirates that fit outside of CL, Werewolves, Bigfoot, Yeti, Satan/Lucifer/Goat-headed demon.

They have amassed a nice catalogue of parts so the possibilities are endless.

I'm not sure how they'd make Bigfoot with existing parts. I don't think they've made a furry body yet. Unless they just make their Moss Man homage figure in another color. I feel like Bigfoot should be on an Ogre body. Or the new bruiser body, but it's not furry at all.

Space Pirates? A concept like that certainly will fit into Cosmic Legions. CL is just starting out so the possibilities seem endless with it, so I don't see something like space pirates not being able to fit into CL.

Mythic Legions already had a ram guy, so I see goat headed guys fitting right into that line.

I can see something like Father Time in this line. Or the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Mothman is a good suggestion. Chupacabra, on a goblin body, although I think we don't have bare/furry limbs for that body yet.

Maybe an occasional historic figure? Like a Roman Soldier. Or Old West Native American? Clothed sculpted parts are starting to get into the parts mix, which could be useful. The more specific the look of the figure, the less likely for reuse. Granted, it doesn't mean they wouldn't make very specific looks. Just trying to think of feasible ideas.

Ouch. Yeah that would have put me out even if I did like it.
