Toy Fair 2015: Four Horsies of the Pocalypse Destroy Kickstarter

We don't back a lot of Kickstarters here on Idle Hands because, frankly, when you write about one, 10 more come knocking for support. We'll admit we are a little biased on this one, as we've worked with the company for some time, but you can't help but support talent and an awesome idea! That's what lead us to talk about Maddie, the Cthulhu-esque Pony-Mentor of the Four Horsies of the Pocalypse. From playful concept that leaked onto the internet to fully funded Kickstarter, Maddie is now finding her way into the hands of grown up kids across the globe, so it is the perfect time to add her little charges to your collection! ..and the best part...THEY ARE ALREADY FULLY FUNDED! I love a sure thing!

The Four Horsies of the Pocalypse Kickstarter is currently 20k over their goal with 5 DAYS TO GO, meaning you can absolutely buy a set of the would-be-world-destroying tikes outright and partake in a selection of stretch goals that are completely INSANE. First off, let's start with the pitch...

Let's meet the Horsies!!

RAVEN: Rotten to the core, or is that just Raven's nature? The typical, starved and insatiable teen...only to the extreme! Raven's hunger is both literal and spiritual. She wants what everybody else has until she gets it.

CALAMITY: Were there an outsider among outsiders, Calamity would be it. Forever cursed with cold-like symptoms, this miserable, flu-ridden flea bag is forced to wear a gas mask at all times to protect her teammates.
SPECIAL POWER: Plaguemancy

GHOST: Nothing scares Ghost, that is, except Ghost. Constantly at odds with his abilities, this "nervous nellie" avoids getting too close to anyone, afraid that he might...well..snuff em'. That in mind, Ghost is always awkwardly mindful of his proximity to others, hoping not to add to his long list of "incidents" from his past.
SPECIAL POWER: Nerotic Touch

CLASH: Clash is the latest in a long line of infamous war horsies; a legacy that infuriates and scares her. Fiercely competitive and quick to boil over, Clash is constantly looking to go head to head with anyone brave enough to cross her.
SPECIAL POWER: Tempered Tantrum

The Four Horsies 4 pack is available on Bigshot Toyworks' Kickstarter in three different color ways including Original, Glow in the Dark and semi-translucent Spirit World editions! Other rewards and packages include a 1 inch button 4 pack, Four Horsies mug, and a "Pocalypse Now" gift set.

BUT WAIT! We did say this project is fully funded, didn't we? That means some hellish extras are already ...DIS!!!

And if people throw more money, Bigshot will make a Tween Maddie!!

And lil tiny baby Micro Maddies!!!

Holy damn we have to get to the lil tiny Maddies. Throw your cash and grab the Four Horsies today!
