Apparently the Four Horsemen have a new hit on their hands. This past weekend they had their first Power Lords figures available at Power-Con. They set aside 250 figures for the convention, they sold out in less than 40 minutes. They also set aside 250 figures for sale on their website on Monday. Those sold out in 4-minutes. They even oversold 200 pieces.
To say they underestimated the interest, is a bit of an understatement. Now they want to help make sure that those that missed out (like myself) have another chance to get the Power Lords: Power Soldier and Power Elite Soldier figures still. So they are going to take pre-orders. Starting Thursday, September 19th at 3:00pm for 72 hours, fans can place a pre-orders for the number of figures they want. This will end on Sunday, September 22nd at 3:00pm. They will then place orders with the factory for whatever number of figures they get pre-orders for. The orders are estimated to arrive in Mid-November.
If you were like me, and wanted to try this new line of figures, but was disappointed they sold out, then you should be happy to hear this news. I know I am. Was about to give up on collecting this line before it even really started. Hope this gives the Four Horsemen an indication of what to expect with future releases of the Power Lords figures.
