Four Horsemen Studios Cosmic Legions Book One: Hvalkatar Review and Images

It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review!

This week, we're having a look at the long awaited first wave of Cosmic Legions, Book One: Hvalkatar, from the Four Horsemen Studios. Cosmic Legions is basically Mythic Legions... IN SPAAAACE! The Four Horsemen Studios tackling sci-fi with their unique designs, and action figure expertise? Sign me in! And these figures did not disappoint!



The first wave has a theme, Hvalkatar, which is a prison and manufacturing complex. Some of the figures of that wave are prisoners from Cell block 5, also known as the GraveRing, while other figures are guards, science officers, warden... I did not go 'all in', but grabbed a big part of the wave directly from the Horsemen, and got the extra skull headsculpt and coin. These are all available on BigBadToyStore.


Olek Thygar (Hvalkatar) Deluxe figure - This figure grabbed my attention immediately. It's such a cool design, the contrast of colors is great, and I knew I wanted it right away. There is another version of Olek, the GraveRing version, which is topless and has less accessories, but I only wanted one version of him and the armored one just looked much better to me. It has several options for the head (normal, small helmet, big helmet), extra pairs of hands, a big jackhammer looking weapon, an assault rifle, 2 guns, 2 wrist blasters, and an hologram effect piece... He is kinda the 'main character' of that first wave. I love that figure.



*Alarm* "You gotta be kidding me..."

"I hate this place..."

Zeerian Spyre, an ex-bioengineer turned fugitive after her finding out her research was used for nefarious motives, comes with an extra head, face mask, a sniper rifle, 2 guns, and hologram effect piece and a beautiful soft goods hooded cloak. The cloak is wired and looks really good with a big insignia on the back. A beautiful figure.




*Alarm* "D*mn..."

"Let me know when something happens..."

Kraggnar is a BEAST. Same size as the ogre scale figures from the Mythic Legions line, he towers over the other figures. He comes with 4 arms, but you can also put flat pieces in the pegs on his back so that he has only 2 arms. He also comes with an extra head and a big club. He has soft goods 'fur' loincloth. The colors really pop and he has fantastic details and paint apps.



*Alarm* "What now?!"


Vorgga, who used to be special ops, is also part of the GraveRing. She comes with an extra masked head, and a heavy machine gun which connects to her ammo backpack, and removable shoulder armors. Vorgga looks like a character you wouldn't want to mess with. That machine gun is huge! Great design on the headsculpt. She was not part of my first picks, but I ended up getting her to have the whole GraveRing crew, and I do not regret.




*Alarm* "Great... just what I needed..."

"So... should we escape?"

The Highwarden Slogg is the tyrannical commander of the Hvalkatar prison. It's so BIG, so many details, the colors, the paint apps... Chef kiss! That is an amazing figure. The articulations are minimal, but I didn't expect to put that figure in Spider-man poses. He comes with an extra head sculpt, extra hands, and a device with a screen. Full disclosure, I did not figure out how to change the head, I tried to pull as hard as I could but feel like I might break the peg if I do, so I added a pic of the second head not on the body... Any tips?




*Alarm* "The prisoners!"


Finally, the two T.U.5.C.C (Traders Union of the 5 Circles of Cosmerrium) guards, the Science Officer (white and blue) and the Sentry (gray and yellow). Those are your 'army builders' guards types of characters. They come with several options for display too. The T.U.5.C.C. Science officer comes with an extra unmasked head, extra pairs of hands, an assault rifle, 2 pistols, a collar and an hologram effect piece. The T.U.5.C.C. Sentry comes with an extra unmasked head, a helmet, extra pairs of hands, a sniper rifle, an assault rifle and 2 wrist blasters.



"Science Officer standing by."



"Sentry standing by."

I did not pick the third T.U.5.C.C. Engineer (black and red), the topless Olek Thygar and the 2 Sphexxian guards. My (stupid) reasoning for the Sphexxian guards is that they do not look 'alien' enough for me, and more like 'just insects'. After seeing pics of the Sphexxian prison guard, I might end up picking one someday...


There has been already 3 more waves announced before the first wave came out (or 2 smaller waves and 1 big wave), so the future looks really bright for Cosmic Legions! Looking forward to more!

Awesome review as always!My bet is on the sentry and Slogg. Love the aesthetics. While packaging is a bit boring, we all know that the real value is in the design of the figures. Cool concepts.

Great review bro! Four Horsemen hitting it out of the park as usual! Slogg is my favorite of this batch
