Thread: WotC Minis

  1. #1

    WotC Minis

    Alright, so who besides me has bought a few dozen booster packs from the various lines?

    Where have you found them at? Any one you like more than the others?

    Anyone going to get the upcoming Ships game? What about the Bounty Hunters and the current Legacy of the Force lines?

    I bought some from Rebel Storm and Universe. I'll probably get some of the Bounty Hunters. It's too bad some of the rare figures run $20 or more. I can't justify forking out that much cash for one tiny figure.

    RS had a news article that there was plans for a Rancor set similar to the AT-ST set, but it was postponed. I want the Rancor.

    A week or so ago I traded in some of my Universe figures from EU and the prequels and got some loose minis from Rebel Storm and a Rebel Storm booster pack. Princess Leia was in the pack.

    I've been lucky. I got lots of stormies in during Rebel Storm, and than lots of Clones and Super Battle Droids during Clone Strike. I passed on just about everything Sith but the Starter Set, and universe was the first time I actually "bought" a mini seperate, ended up purchasing 4 Viper Droids. I traded away a lot of Banthas, Jawas and Jedi amongst others for a handful of R2s. Now I see that the R5s will be uncommons, makes me wonder if there why there wasn't a common astromech and protocol droids before.

    My fiancee is more excited about the upcoming ships than me. I am indifferent because I don't play the game but use them for RPG purposes and display. She'd gladly sell off my 3.75" stuff for all Titanium and minis (like that'll happen).

    I'm complete on all of the sets but Universe (still need about 15 of them to complete the set). I plan on getting the BH set as well.

    I used to be a big time player, but since that's kind of dried up in my parts, I just collect them now.

    Oh and your right Rogue II, I can't see paying that much for a small fig either. Though I did begrudgingly on Boba from the first set. On average for rares and very rares, I pay anywhere from $3-10 depending on the character. Though I do look for deals and tend to wait until a set's been out for awhile before I go loking for the HTF stuff. I can't wait for the Ships set. But I think once that set comes out, I'll be done with these. Need to start pulling back sometime and this is one line I don't "need" to collect. Perhaps if there were still lpayers in me area and sponsored places to play, but those days have been gone for about 6 months at least now.

    Oh, if anyone does what to see the newest set go here:

    They just posted 16 links to bigger pics of the characters (though not hi-res you get the idea). Also there are 3 links to PDF files detailing the characters, their abilities, alignment, etc.

    Here's the bigger pic links:

    The only ones I have ever paid for "loose" are the Viper Droids from Universe. I just wanted 4 of them for display purposes.

    Although I should update that pics since I painted some metal WotC minis, added older painted WEG minis, and bought 3 boxes of the Champions of the Force (and pretty much Sithing out with Palpy, Malek, Sith Troopers and some Dark Troopers).

    Is this Bith going all Matrix? Pretty funny.

    I'll buy a box or two and trade in the figures I don't want. The guys Comic book store near me are pretty cool about it. I think they recently got a case of Rebel Storm in.

    Since I only collect OT 3.75" figures, I started buying minis because I wasn't getting the OT figure fix because '05 was a movie year.

    Yeah, I think the plan is in each of the next series of minis is to make a variety alien of Black Sun Vigos. While not truely accurate it does make sense to have some Fringe midlevel commanders.

    I think those Viper Droids look like giant cockroaches...

    They are the only thing worth remembering from Dark Empire II. Plus what do you expect when you hire use Balmoran arms and a Collcoid designer?

    Well I trade in these and have most figures from most sets so if your after completing any let me know.

    I have prices on my site as per below but if you are after a few drop me a line and i will see about doing a deal to help you out. Incedentilly do any of you play in the UK as I am trying to pull together more organised play in the UK for release events and championships but have some work to do on getting players!

    The next one we are running is Bounty Hunters release event, we have WOTC on side for prize support and I am supporting the event with more exclusive prizes also.
