The Four Horsemen relayed via email that the new Power Lords line will not be moving forward. They put all the items up for pre-order, and even added in some troop builders, but the numbers just weren’t there. They only hit about 2/3rds of what they would have needed to proceed. All of us who did place pre-orders had them cancelled and the holds on cards have been released. We are saddened to hear this but that’s business. Hopefully some of these great sculpts can work their way out later on in some other way. You can read their full statement below.
Well we tried, and we want to thank everyone who pre-ordered, supported, and helped to spread the word for the Power Lords pre-order, but unfortunately, we just weren’t able to reach the milestone we needed to reach in order to be able to move forward with production. We were able to get about 2/3 of the way to where we needed to be, but even with support from outside resources, that still wasn’t quite enough to do the trick.
So, as much as we hate to say it, the Power Lords pre-orders through Store Horsemen are all being cancelled right now, the authorizations for the credit cards that were used are being cancelled, and those of you who placed pre-orders should be getting some sort of notice about that very soon.
We’re sincerely sorry that we couldn’t make this happen. Power Lords has been a passion of ours since childhood, but the numbers just aren’t there at the moment. We were able to gain some data from this experiment that will help us in some of our future sales and pre-orders, so it’s not completely a wash on our end. Thanks SO MUCH to everyone who tried hard to make this happen, but it just wasn’t a possibility this time around.
For now at least, Adam Power and the rest of the Power Lords are going to leave our solar system and go off on some top secret missions beyond the stars. Wish them luck!
