Four Horsemen’s proud American Gothitropolis Eagle is open for pre-order

I think a definite favorite from Four Horsemen’s Gothitropolis series was their Bald Eagle. He was just so extreme! I mean he is the definition of patriotism.

His armor is red, white, and blue, he wears the American flag as a cape, and he literally is the national symbol for the United States. So this figure, named Eagalus, is now open for pre-order on Four Horsemen’s website. Although pre-orders did open today, only Kickstarter backers are able to order them now.

They also will be getting a special discount price too, US$28. Why didn’t I back this project?! This early access will be for 24 hours only and will end at 3pm EST tomorrow.

For everyone else who wants this figure, you can pre-order it tomorrow, September 15, starting at 3pm EST. However, you will have to pay the regular price, US$32. So Eagalus will come with a lance, interchangeable feet, and his American flag cape.

Of course, his package has to be patriotic too, so he will come in a package with an American flag background. Four Horsemen’s Eagalus will be flying out to homes in November.

Happy Independence Day to my American friends from Hot Toys 1/6 die-cast Iron Patriot

Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain (now officially known as the United Kingdom). Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.

I guess it’s appropriate and timely that I post pictures of this recently released Hot Toys MMS195-D01 Movie Masterpiece Series Die-cast 1/6th scale Iron Patriot 12-inch Collectible Action Figure from “Iron Man 3” with the alternate saluting hand / palm which is included with this figure (see pictures of the box and contents HERE). Interestingly enough, this saluting hand was not part of the initial list of included hands when Hot Toys first published the official preview pictures.

This is my fourth post on this Hot Toys MMS195-D01 Movie Masterpiece Series Die-cast 1/6th scale Iron Patriot 12-inch Collectible Action Figure from “Iron Man 3”, having already covered the box packaging and contents earlier on in my toy blog post HERE followed by the light-up features of die-cast Iron Patriot HERE plus the 1/6th scale Don Cheadle as LT COL James Rhodes / Iron Patriot head sculpt with two interchangeable masks / faceplates (one is fully closed and the other one is slightly opened) HERE
Besides the Protector of Liberty which is well fortified of military strength and technological superiority (which is how Hot Toys described this 1/6th scale Iron Patriot Limited Edition Collectible Figurine), another figure that is well suited for Independence Day would be Captain America. Here are pictures of both Hot Toys Iron Patriot and The Avengers Captain America 12-inch figures standing side-by-side for size comparisons. Scroll down to see how they fare against each other.
