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

This week, we're having a look at 2 action figures from the Four Horsemen Studios, the Power-Con 2023 exclusive Demistros and the latest figure in the Figura Obscura line, the Masque of the Red Death! I was waiting for the latest Legions Con exclusive Vorgus Vermillius 2.0 figure to group them in the same review, but plans have changed and I will get it later. Not an issue though, as those 2 offerings from the Four Horsemen Studios are awesome figures!

First off, Demistros, who is neither a Mythic Legions, Figura Obscura or even Cosmic Legions figure, but a Power-Con figure, as mentioned on the box. Obviously, he uses mostly parts from Mythic Legions figures, but he's not part of the line. Demistros comes with 2 fantastic head sculpts (bone color and translucent green), 2 pairs of hands (normal and translucent green), a beautiful double sided (black and purple) cape by CJESIM, a big sword, a morning star (or ball and chain flail) and a spear. His armor has great details and paint, with some rust/patina effect. I was not a big fan of the Belphegor figure from the Arethyr wave, thinking the head was a bit too big, but put bone color (or translucent green!) on it and I'm sold. It is a fantastic figure!

The latest figure in the Figura Obscura line was revealed in late September, and is not necessarily linked to any 'holiday' (After Krampus, the Headless Horsemen and Father Christmas, I associated the line with holidays, but the Monkey King has changed that since). The Masque of the Red Death is inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe short story of the same name, and there is even a little booklet included with the story in it. The figure comes with 3 extra pairs of hands, a dagger, along with a large ebony clock, with a pool of blood in front of it (that can serve as a base for the figure! Neat!). It has a beautiful soft goods, wired robe, designed by the great CJESIM. Another fantastic figure, which looks great any way you display it. The clock is a great prop that can be used in all sorts of other toy pictures. It has a raven on top (you know, the one from the quote!). Just like the previous Figura Obscura figures, the packaging includes a backdrop, but if I wanted to be nitpicky, I would have preferred the picture that was on the cardboard insert inside the box (simple red stained glass) rather than the one with people wearing masks screaming painted on it, just to have a more 'standard' background, but it's still an amazing painting. The mask of the figure can be removed to reveal... i'll let you see for yourself. I am in love with that line, and can't wait for what's next!

To be honest, I like the Demistros figure, but the huge deal is the Red Death figure. I'm not sure if anyone here has a soft spot for the cheesy 1990 movie with Frank Stallone (also the original is a fantastic one though), and the outcome for this release is a whole new level.I like that 4H is planning on creating iconic baddies from stories that are with us for decades. The red lights really are showing the strong points of the figure!

I will have to check that movie! As always, thanks for the support!
