Press Release: The Power Lords Return!

So here's what we know.
- Four Horsemen
- Glyos
- 3 3/4-inch

So it'll be like the Outer Space Men, sort of.  Our good pal Doctor Kent sent along a press release, which shall be presented forthwith!

For immediate release:

"The Mayan year 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-renowned 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.

Getting to work with Barlowe on the much-anticipated return of Power Lords has been the culmination of a life-long dream for Four Horsemen co-founder Eric Treadaway. Four Horsemen Studios are currently hard at work creating the new Power Lords prototypes that will be revealed during the Power Lords-themed Toypocalypse 3 Art Exhibit occurring in New York at TT Underground in February during New York Toy Fair 2013.

New Power Lords Action Figures?

A new old line is approaching, maybe!  Over the weekend we were informed of a site called Power Lords Return with a countdown clock which is up in about 67 days.  What is it counting down to?  Is it a hoax?

Trademark searching and WHOIS? verification didn't provide anything, although I will confess I've heard two separate organizations discussing possible interest in this license over the past couple of years and the interested parties' information doesn't align with the information connected to this new URL.

Either way, it's time to do some blog squatting.  I'll post more here as I have it!

While you're waiting, you can go here to read more about the original line... which, I must say, I did not own as a kid.
