Oh I really hope so!
Same. If they think they can sell a boat at 60-70, I'm sure they realize the value of dragons at a similar price would be valuable..I mean, they made a slime right? Rexy is selling great so a giant dragon should be easy money. They could even retool the same body and give us multiple color dragons
As it stands, dicelings will hopefully do for me as the most articulated and reasonably priced ragons on the market so far lol
I think this would be a bad idea. Just because both are fantasy based doesn't mean people are fans of both. Imagine how pissed people would be if forced to buy a brand they don't like because it has a BAF part. Just keep the brands in their own lines.
Imagine if they did it with other brands. Marvel fans estatic to get a BAF Goblin Queen figures. Then they break out the torches and pitchforks once they find out they have to buy Wolverine, Spiderman, Gambit, Lobot from Star Wars and The Library Ghost from Ghostbusters.
Hasbro doesn't really do BAFs anymore, outside of Marvel Legends, which barely does them.
In general, they seem to be moving away from the idea of waves. We get 3-4 figure waves in most lines and around half the actual releases for the year are sold at a higher price point as single-packed figures. Plus multi-packs.
I don't think a mixed property Hasbro line would go down the way you're thinking. For the most part, it would just share planogram pegs.
There wouldn't be a BAF. Waves would be small. You'd see a substantial chunk of releases be single-packed to a case or in multipacks.
In large measure, it would just be a unified place for a bunch of lower performing brands to get between 1-5 figures a year without canceling the line and a launching pad for new lines when something succeeds.
If there is no BAF, then it would be standard figures at $19.99 (what it should cost, as there are no licensing fees) for a standard figure a few army builders with some characters or named pieces, like a skeleton warrior with a sword and shield and greatsword, and a female elf wizard, with a weapon, spellbound, and a few magic effects or a named character from MTG.
I feel like a scale dragon in a 6" line would be way bigger than Rexy and probably close to the Commander price point. Even young dragons in D&D are freaking huge.
Yeah, but scale accurate would be too expensive. At 50-70 a pop, large and affordable dragons would be good. Big enough to be special in the collection, affordable enough you could convince someone to collect multiple
Kinda overpriced, really wish the numbers were painted
Ack! The Beholder makes them kind of tempting.
Might as well be their own subline and not connected to the 6" line in that case.
It’d be nice if there were a few more waves of these in the future. So many creatures they could make...
Personally I don't need a 6" scale dragon, all I want is a good sized one that's really poseable and looks good to boot.
I think they could probably do a Galactus sized dragon as a Haslab. I'd be tempted IF they showed signs of doing a line with deep cuts. But I'm not going to spend $400 on a figure for a line that ends in 2023.
Yeah, same. If they expand outside the film and into stuff from the books/graphic novels that are well-loved by the fandom I would be hard-pressed not to buy a bunch of stuff. Not interested in movie figures at this point as I'm not hyped about it. I'll definitely go see it but so far I'm not convinced to buy merch from it.
One cool idea they could do would be kinda like the selfie series but not totally. Once they have enough parts build up they could totally do a build your own character sorta thing where you choose from a selection of parts to make a figure based on your own character (for example, a recent character I made is a Changeling Druid).
I doubt they'd do it, but it'd be cool given that the game is all about making your own characters.
That would be both awesome and I imagine expensive. Given what they charge for preset bodies with the selfie heads I don't want to know what they'd think a "custom assembled body" would be worth even if they're using tooling that already exists. Especially since much like custom character minis the run would be a one off.
Yea, and that price is exactly why I don't think they'd ever do it, but it's still a cool idea to think about.
I suggested they could try to get likeness rights to celebrities who've played D&D to do as their characters.
I've seen too many people say they wouldn't pay $30 for a Patton Oswalt, Stephen Colbert, Felicia Day, or Wil Wheaton though.
I think monsters are where the appetite exists but that's also where the tooling budget is heaviest.
Honestly, they might do better licensing D&D to McFarlane. He already does Critical Role.
The Beholder is the best of the bunch. Looks good and is easy to transform. I really don't want to see more Dragons or animals that are a fiddly mess to get back into dice mode. Maybe they can do other dice shapes too?
No one else thinks he looks like the Hamburger Helper?
