I think I like the dark one the most. Hopefully the head is a bit more in proportion than Anubis

Moonbase Alpha Male

Silver vs Gold is a misnomer - silver is a minor barely noticeable accent on the armor bits.  I guess they wanted to avoid "Black" vs "White" versions.  If TBL was going to go through the effort of two versions I wish they had done it on some figure, like a Pharaoh or an Egyptian Soldier, that would appeal to buying both as different characters (not so with Horus).  I'm still ranting that in all the years we have had so many 1/6 Romans, Greeks and Vikings, no one has ever done a regular Egyptian male (except once, Mystic Forge's Ramessess II, that was scarcely distributed and made overpriced by including an unnecessary throne).  Yet there is a whole universe of 1/6 Egyptian decor available as nick-nacks and no regular Egyptian males to use them.  With TBL now we have 4+ females and 2+ Animal Gods but 0 men.

I share Delanie's concern:  the head looks ok in the pics but the underscaling on Anubis really only revealed itself in hand.  Best thing about this figure isn't the figure itself, but the likelihood following Anubis that we may eventually get a whole Egyptian Pantheon.

That is very cool. Will have to decide which one to get.

And I don't think you need to worry about this figures head. The underscaled head on Anubis was present when the prototype was first shown, and TbLeague didn't change it. Horus' head in the above photos next to Anubis looks comparatively larger.

And oddly enough, there is also is a pre-order for 1/12 Anubis, and it's head actually looks scaled correctly.

Oddly enough, I suspect that the TBL Horus beak is way overscale compared to the historical images, but I prefer this version for its aesthetic.

I’ll be going for the darker one. And I agree, the head looks slightly better proportioned than Anubis.

Damn nice!
Together with Anubis it'll make a very nice display.

Well this looks pretty awesome. I have no need for it, but tempted to pick up a few parted out pieces for sure. Those clawed hands and feet, especially...

With hindsight I can see the Anubis head was already underscale in the promo pics. At the time I didn't see it, and I normally would notice (but it's not a usual human head).

Thanks Nekk-ra, I hadn't seen that 1/12 Anubis announcement. Wonder how far TBL will go down both paths. It would actually be cool to build a corner of a 1/6 temple where the 1/12 figures are statues.

I'm trully getting tempted on starting a 1/12th TBL collection. They announced Death Dealer and now Anubis in this scale... and I can only hope that this figure will follow the same path next year.

How cool would it be to have a stylized Serqet, with the same body colour and a poseable scorpion's tail?

As for male egyptians, I totally agree. It would be neat, specially if they used the m32, m33 or m36 bodies, or better yet, a new one not as buffed as the 34.
All of their figures use M34 or M35 bodies. Time to change a bit.

I think this is better proportioned than the Anubis and I personally like the style and detail better, although in principle I'm disappointed in the failure to recreate a more genuinely Egyptian look. Admittedly, the style is sleeker and designed to appeal to more modern/comics audiences.

Ancient Egypt is my genre but this isn't ancient Egypt. There are plenty of Egyptian illustrations of Horus that they could have used as a model but they produce this fantasy bollocks instead. It is worse than what we saw in the Mummy movies.

Looks like real fur on his cloak.

Thats a criterion for exclusion for me. And I am really sorry about this, because that's a really great figure and I am a great fan of ancient Egypt.

Fantasy bollocks, as opposed to what -- they should have used Horus and Anubis's Driver's License Pictures?

But Shazzdan, I get what you are saying and you are absolutely right.  There is a huge stylistic divergence between these figures and any ancient representations, contemporary to the historical belief in Horus or Anubis.  To be fair I think any direct translations into 1/6 would look flat, quaint and weird at the same time (especially the animal heads) and probably their financial viability would largely be limited to museum exhibits and school projects.  It is also a factor in my mind that there are actually quite a lot of already available statues etc that do directly reproduce those actual Egyptian representations etc, some of them even approximating 1/6 scale -- so to add expensive posable figures into the marketplace, it made sense to veer into dynamic, more 2020 redesign type exaggerations.  They do no disservice to the "originals" as I think no one would confuse the two.  Obviously I have a more positive fun reaction to the "Fantasy bollocks" than you do, and admittedly it probably colors my thinking.

I agree real fur would be a criterion for exclusion. That said, do you have specific information here? Because "Looks like real fur" is a thing also, and I don't have a problem with that. I know some people also object even to faux fur because it is a reference to real fur, but I do not go that far. Faux fur is pretty indistinguishable -- right now I am looking at a doll carpet, a separated faux fur wine sac, and a cut open teddy bear in my 1/6 world, none of it coming from an actual animal. I know the concern with real fur comes sometimes on 1/6 figures, for example there was speculation that John Snow migh have had cat fur but I never saw anything conclusive. I genuinely don't really know how to approach this issue.

BBTS has this figure for PO at 169USD. And the 1/12th Anubis is 89USD. Pleasant surprise on these prices.

I'm kinda torn between these two versions. I liked the golden details on the head and armor but I liked the white cloth and cape more.

It occurs to me that the second differently colored Horus could be converted, to expand the Pantheon, into one of the other avian headed Gods, so long as one could find or make a suitable bird-head. TBL Cleopatra already looks more like Isis than she does the actual Cleopatra, having the Moon with Horn headdress (or one such could be given to TBL Anck). A completed DC Multiverse 10" Collect & Connect Killer Croc would be a decent Sobek, while any 1/6 cow and maybe the Harry Potter serpent become Hathor and Apep/Apophis with a little added ornament.

So does the Pantheon expand, with or without TBL. But I don't expect TBL to make a Taweret hippo body any time soon.

I think technically the TBL Anubis head is not wrongly proportioned, if you accept that Anubis isn't supposed to be some kind of Dr Moreau, sci-fi DNA splice hybrid of human and jackal. He is a god with the body of a man and the head of a jackal, so TBL gave him the head size of an actual 1/6 Jackal. But they surely can't apply the same logic to Horus because a 1/6 human body with a tiny 1/6 Falcon head would look pretty ludicrous.

There are plenty of things that don't technically add up -- both with the original Egyptian standard depictions and with the modern TBL fantasy one. It does help when you put the Anubis head on a slimmer body, as I've shown as a test before.

Thanks for your support. Of course, I can't prove my theory now, but I asked Phicen right now and will wait for their response.

The fur looks like the material which was used on the Female Dragon Warrior sets from Vicky Secrets. This was rabbit fur. Hopefully I am wrong.

I’d love to see you get an answer from Phicen/TBL  but of itself I am not hopeful.  Something like Mattel or even Sideshow would probably give you a straight answer but I would not be optimistic about smaller companies in the Asian region.  Maybe you could direct them to the new laws prohibiting sale of fur items in California (and suggest that if they do not answer you may pursue it further with the authorities or worse for them, the retailers) which should at least get TBL's attention.  NY Times says "For the purpose of the law, fur is defined as “animal skin or part thereof with hair, fleece or fur fibers attached thereto.” For the purposes of shoppers, that means mink, sable, chinchilla, lynx, fox, rabbit, beaver, coyote and other luxury furs."  So here's a link https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/14/style/fur-ban-california.html you could use to get TBL's attention with.  Several prominent retailers are in California, so if TBL can reassure you, they should do so, before someone suggests to those prominent California retailers that some TBL goods could be illegal.

I'm not quite sure where rabbit fur places on the ethical scale.  Leather gets a partial pass as an existing by-product of the food industry (unless the rule is that all "Meat is murder") while mink, chinchilla etc and even cat are outright raised for fur, and totally indefensible.  Rabbit fur is probably on the latter side, since some are offshoots of food industry, but probably not enough to supply all of the fur industry use.  But now I'm veering off-topic.

Creepiest part of that Phicen answer is how apparently clueless they are on why your question would ever be asked in the first place.  I’m surprised you got a response at all, but it probably is because they thought their use of “real” materials was a positive selling point to boast about.  And the sad part is that synthetic materials would be just as suitable to their purpose, so the issue doesn’t even have to get into ethical territory.  

If they were made aware that the fur technically makes their product illegal to sell in California, and maybe other places, I wonder would that have any practical effect.  At least maybe they could think they dodged a bullet on Horus but why not avoid any future problems and go synthetic from now on.
