The Four Horsemen: Falcus

The Four Horsemen have created some of the best figures out there. These guys are amazing artist and sculpters. Their long awaited kick starter campaign for the Gothitropolis 6” fully-articulated birds has finally made it to collectors shelves across the globe. I did not particpate in the kickstarter campaign but I luckily was able to get a couple off their website


The image above is of Falcus, and he is amazing. You may not even know that you have been collecting figures made by these guys. They were instrumental in the much loved DC universe Classics and also Masters of the Universe Classics line of action figures. But anyway back to “Falcus”. The articulation is great, but I most admire the flawless paint and sculpt. They do have some issues with their joints. I highly suggest running them under hot water for a minute or two before trying to move them around. They might break if you don’t. It always amazes me how these things get made, to be mass produced I just dont know how they paint these things. Maybe you guys know? Someone just sittng there for hours a day and their job is just to paint the eyes? Sounds monotonous, but I say thank you! Love my little birds. Now you guys go get yours if you have not already. I wish I could afford them all. They are escalating in price on ebay so I suggest going to the four horsemen's store to purchase. Anyway thanks for reading, and have fun collecting.

Comment below and let me know if there are any figures you want me to review next!


DIORAMAS, dust off those figures.

Like a lot of collectors out there, I’ve got shelves full of plastic crack, lol. One day after perusing instagram I came across some awesome images that used action figures in these elaborate miniature sets. After my interest was peaked, I began my quest to find out what this was all about. That’s when I found out about “ACBA” which stands for Articulated Comic Book Art. The pioneer of this art form’s name is Kendal Gray AKA Boognice10 and this movement started around the summer of 2009. Basically everything is done in camera NO PHOTOSHOP. Cut out comic speech bubbles are used, lighting effects etc. As an artist myself I thought I could do this or at least try building the sets. 

So I searched some more and found their sister group on facebook called Diostructure.The Diostructure group is where I found a home.

On Diostructure’s page there are tons of talented artists that are helpful with tips and techniques. I have to admit there was a learning curve, but with the help of the diostructure community it didn’t take me long to catch on. Of course with anything it takes time to get the hang of it and I’m still learning.The main materials for anyone getting started are an exacto knife, acylic paints, polystyreen insulation foam, metal ruler and a great imagination.

The first diorama I made was sort of a blown up building with two floor levels. I started about 2 years ago making these dios. I have made alley ways, throne rooms, spaceship command centers, the list goes on. I love it. It’s a chance to be a kid again and get those figures down off the shelf and actually use them.

I don’t post much on ACBA’s group page. I found my talents better used in the building of the dios. A few of the members of ACBA community have commisioned me to build their sets, and that keeps me really busy. Anyone that enjoys collecting and likes to be creative would love this. It’s taken my love for the hobby to the next level.
