    Wasn’t a fan of the Angel in just the one picture here, but the IG pictures show off all the extra accessories and sold me on it.

    It didn't used to bother me, but those Ogres got some stubby-ass legs. They can almost tie their shoes without bending over.

    Ok, the spectral translucent head on the wizard pushed it into the buy category.

    I urge everyone to go check out the 4H IG to see all the cool things these figures have!

    This is the most impressive, interesting post I’ve seen in a while! Love the comparisons you’ve got going on here, and what a diverse and eclectic collection of figures! Really great stuff.

    Re: the new wave, I’m probably in for the Golden Skeleton, Azza Spiritbender, and wizard dude. The cat thief is a maaaaybe. The rest are probably passes.

    Thanks, I'm not much of a reviewer and just an amateur poser/photographer but I do love mixing up the lines and the display!

    For the new Mythic Legions wave, I'll wait until near the end of the month long preorder period to decide my final choices, no all in for me this time. my initial thoughts:

    Azza Spiritbender 2 - it's an upgrade over the original with the new soft goods and updated Poxxus wave parts, I already gave my Azza 1 a max bird soft goods cape, belt and skirt plus the new parts from the Poxxus accessory set, so I think I can skip this one. A screaming head would have tipped her into the buy category. If you don't have the original she would be a no brainer!

    Blue Shield Soldier - looks like a fun set, will be great for customizers. Likely pick up.

    Frost Ogre - looks cool (no pun intended) and I do have an arctic display so I might pick him up down the line, just getting a little tired of that ogre weapon and feet

    Gold Skeleton 2 - definite pick up, update of the rare original Kickstarter figure and although gruesome it's neat how they are now in story undead angels

    Ioself - he's ok, I think the pearl white finish of the armor will look better in person. Feel he needs a new head or helmet, neither of the two he has works for me. Probably be more excited for him when I see a squad of him, Sir Ignatius, Gadriel and Sir Ucczajk

    K'ai Pacha - probable pick up, it's a classic thief character type. Will have to get him some lockpick accessory. Another one where I think a newer non repainted head will do wonders

    Malignancy of Gobhollow - New pig faced goblin head is nice, a female Goblin head would have made this set a must get, for now I might pass and just get the new pig head separately.

    Shadow Centaur - looks good, maybe pickup, would have preferred a Pegasus mount in this slot though!

    Xue - leaning no, he has a new head but another bald wizard. Wanted some Gandalf like flowing locks :)  if he had a new soft goods wizard's hat that would have been more tempting as well.

    Couple of more pics and comparisons of the Figura Obsscura Gods of Ancient Egypt set

    Figura Obscura Bastet with some of her cat friends - Lanard Jumanji cheetah, Disney Store exclusive Chronicles of Narnia Aslan lion, Hasbro Marvel Legends Zabu sabretoothed tiger and Hasbro Dungeons and Dragons Guenhwyvar panther

    With the Four Horsemen Seventh Kingdom Queen's Council cat warriors

    I'm guessing that the Egyptian deities like Ra, Horus, Seth, Osiris are likely to come next in Figura Obscura but a cool looking one to me would be Khepri, the scarab bug faced god of the rising son! This is just a digibash, though i'd love it if the 4H would include a head like this to go on Anubis.

    I picked up a Jakks Pacific Scorpion King Cassandra on ebay to go with them, she scales well with them I feel and makes for a fine priestess

    Dang... totally didn't realize the order window for the latest wave was closing. Usually I watch for a mail for Store Horseman, but either I didn't get one this time or it went to spam.

    I was only planning to get four of the figures this time anyway, but I might cut that down to two or three and just order them at BBTS. Or wait for the in-stock sale, I suppose.

    4H hasn’t done an instock sale in ages now, and seems to have moved away from the concept.

    Either preorder for product not dropping for years or pay more from a partner these days.
