Power Lords at San Diego Comic-Con 2014

The big surprise at Comic-Con?  Raygoth.  His shiny chest was on display as a 1:1 prototype, alongside a swell variant head for Sydot.

Click here to see the gallery I assembled over at 16bit.com, because why not.

Review: Four Horsemen Power Lords Ggrapptikk Action Figure

Four Horsemen Power Lords Ggrapptikk Action FigureOriginally teased to fans as "Ultimate Edition Barlowe Tribute Ggripptogg figure" in a solicitation for the $100 Volcan Rock level of the Power Lords Fan Club, the plussed-up signed figure turned out to be the blue Ggrapptikk. He's a very low run painted figure, exclusive to club members. He was $40 alone, or part of the $100 level - which was about $40 above the next membership level, but signatures were exclusive to the higher club level. He's twice the price of the regular red Ggripptogg, but you get three extra heads, four extra arms, an extra skirt, and an extra stick. Do you need these parts? Well, no, but it's a nice option to have. The biggest complaint about this figure that I have is that he's a "trooper" and yet army-building him is prohibitive due to price and the low edition size. Ah well. At least it's pretty spectacular!

Power Lords: Summer Cleaning Sale

Everybody deserves a second chance, and you'll get a crack at sold-out figures like the purple and pink Ggrapptikk Grunts again at Store Horsemen in Monday's sale! The one new item in this sale is a "variant head pack," with 7 noggins - all 6 Power Soliders plus a green Grunt helmet.  No price has been given yet, but it goes on sale at 3:00 PM Eastern.

If the previous Outer Space Men sale was any indication a couple of years back, the pricing may be very good - so keep your peepers peeled if you missed something!

Review: Four Horsemen Power Lords Lord Power Action Figure

Four Horsemen Power Lords Lord Power Action FigureI laughed out loud when I saw the headline under Lord Power's name was "The Power Lord," but that's really the only part of this figure that feels like it's joking around. From the waist on down, the figure is the same as six previously-released Power Soldiers. The torso, arms, and head are all new - plus there's a bonus head, which I admit I don't think adds much to the set. The default head, Power Staff, and rifle are a delight.

Review: Four Horsemen Power Lords Ophidian Squad Elite Power Soldier Action Figure

Four Horsemen Power Lords Ophidian Squad Elite Power Soldier Action FigureRed is a weird color - it's seemingly difficult to match, and at first glance I thought this red Ophidian Squad Elite Power Soldier looked like a new shade. It's not all that far off from Venjorun Armorvor, the Red Army Banimon figures, or the very first red Weaponeers of Monkaa Empyreus. It's a tiny bit different - so at first glance it seemed like a new hue to Glyos. I suppose that it technically is.

Power Lords Arriving Now

My box is here!  Club member orders have all gone out, so say the Four Horsemen - some even arrived already.  I cracked open my Lord Power tonight and he's even better than I expected - for the price, he's pretty astonishing, especially compared to toys from larger companies with bigger runs.

My box had two heads - the light tan Slate Zone Elite variant helmet, and a green Ggrapptikk helmet.   I hear most people got the latter.  What did you get?

We'll have more on them very soon, while you're waiting keep an eye on the mailbox!
