    Celebrating 20 years of the Four Horsemen!

    Happy Four Horsemen Day!
    It was 20 years ago today that the papers were signed, making Four Horsemen Toy Design an official business. Let's all join together in giving thanks to the studio that has helped bring us so many years of amazing MOTU and POP toy design.

    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    Slainte fellas. Here’s to twenty more years of success!

    Thank you for the amazing Classics and Grayskull lines. By your hands has my childhood been vindicated. I wish MotU toys could have looked as good thirty seven years ago.

    All the best with your own lines. I look forward to many more waves of Mythic Legions.

    Their contributions to the modern toy biz have been not only amazing but also ground breaking, we're lucky as toy collectors to have them around, without them the action figure landscape would be very different and a lot less cool.

    Gents, I can't thank you enough for the incredible work you've churned out over the years! 200X is what really got me back into MOTU and remains my favourite design incarnation to date. That's not to say I haven't bought just about every Classics figure, because I have... Can't get enough of that Horsemen goodness!

    I literally just opened up my first Mythic Legions figure, the skeleton army builder and man, I've been missing out! Bought two to build MOTUC Skeletor's army up a bit and they may not be my last...

    Woohoo! Congrats 4H! The world has been a much better place since you've unleashed your designs to it! Here's to another 20 years!
    "I wouldn't be surprised if this movie has Adam as a skinny nerd from Earth battling another skinny nerd-hacker from Earth that used an alias of Keldor. They then enter Tron-style to a cyber world called Eternia, where they control muscle-bound avatars to battle (called He-Man and Skeletor). And these same avatars come to life and continue to battle in present-day Earth." - VZX

    Congratulations, Four Horsemen Studios.

    Masters of the Universe Classics deserves a place in history (despite the fact that all the torsos are unsymmetrical!). It's been a very special line. What a shame that this anniversary also marks the likely demise of the line.

    Their own lines have improved over the years. Mythic Legions is the pinnacle in terms of both design and quality, but I'd still love to see the Scarabus line reissued.

    Here are some pictures.

    Thank you so much Horsemen. Happy 20th Anniversary! You all have breathed new life into MOTU and so many other toy lines. I appreciate the hard work you all put into making these figures the best they can be.

    If those two aren't a nod to He-man and Skeletor, I don't know what is. Very cool!

    I admire your work since the 200x era. Loved the 200x action figures, liked even more the stactions. I really appreciated all the details incorporated into the MOTUC line. Hopefully you'll still on board with Masters for decades to come!
