Review: Four Horsemen Power Lords Slate Zone Power Soldier Action Figure

Four Horsemen Power Lords Slate Zone Power Soldier Action FigureCast in grey plastic, the Slate Zone Power Soldier is - as are his siblings - a wonderfully engineered figure. The Glyos system was adapted to a so-called "Glybrid" joint system in which we got the functionality of Glyos and Hasbro's ball joints in a 3 3/4-inch humanoid figure. So no matter what, this is a good figure with a great range of motion. When placed in context of its line, it becomes a bit of a bore being one of only two body types during the line's first year and a half, give or take. Endless repaints are a bitter pill to swallow, with other Glyos-compatible lines usually cranking out an all-new figure ever year or so with more customization options. It seems almost unfair to judge this figure for things outside its control, because the plastic person presently performs pretty admirably.

New Power Lords February 20, Fan Club Updates, Kickstarter
Now here's some news! The Four Horsemen posted this to

1. The long-awaited green Power Soldier and Lord Power are due for Fan Club members on February 20 for $10 each. Non-members get a shot on February 22.

2. The existing Fan Club membership is being held over - so if you're a member, it counts for this new drop.

3. Future figures will be financed by Kickstarter.  No dates are known as of yet, but with the Mythic Legions (now non-Glyos) coming up first it might be a while.
