    That's exactly what I'm going to do except I'm going to use the green for my MOTU figures. I'm also probably going to rip off that back artwork that's glued in the case and use it as a backdrop. I've also thought about trimming that D&D folder into a backdrop for my Venger figure who's in my TV cabinet. The thing is, I really like the case and kind of hate to start cutting it up.

    Having gotten into DnD this past year, I was curious what some of yall thought about DnD vs Pathfinder (about the games themselves, not the gaming license debate from earlier in the year). Trying to read up on the general lore of Pathfinder but it seems a little less focused than most DnD settings (it's also probable that I just don't know where to look). Pathfinder does seem to be a bit more of a grab bag setting with traditional fantasy, steam punk and aliens with future tech all existing within the same setting (unless I'm reading things wrong), which seems kind of interesting to me.

    Guys, I just went back to Ollies today and every single D&D set was gone. They had like half a pallets worth stacked to the ceiling and every single one is gone. So either a lot of people are getting D&D Terrain sets for Christmas or some scalper decided to go big or go home.

    EDIT - This shit right here came straight from Ollies. No doubt. That's the Ollies trinity. Sold for $55. He paid $16.

    Saw the Chris pine figure at Ross. Never saw him at any other store so for 5.99 I grabbed it to go with the other discounted ones I have gotten.

    Nice. I would love the Witcher and D&D stuff for parts and kitbashing. I have found zero good stuff at any Ross. :lol

    Me and my bro have been finding Classified all over the place at our Ross’s. No D&D, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it either.

    Just curious did you guys find the Viper packs? That's the only one I haven't found that I really want (besides now copperhead is showing up and the tiger force dusty)

    I apologize if this is the wrong thread, and I couldn't find any info by searching elsewhere. Does anyone know if there will be more Dicelings, or what team we would ask?

    (edit: Because I have them all... and I need more...)

    Alas I have to say probably not. The D&D toys in general didn't sell well regardless of how good they were.

    Yeah, there was some article that said Hasbro lost MILLIONS with the D&D license. It's why so much stock got dumped at Ollies. Hell, those D&D Terrain kits debuted for what? Somewhere between 50 and 70 dollars? And Ollies was selling them for $3? So what did Ollies pay for those? 50 cents? I mean, Hasbro just gave them away.

    There's also all the canceled subscriptions on DnD Beyond from earlier in the year among other things. It's not just the figures and merch that they lost money on. The movie, while moderately successful, also wasn't the hit they were hoping it would be.

    Yeah i got a second of the Chris pine one the other day because the head is really good and may make good fodder. If I could think of some project for the others I would get extras of each but the bodies are pretty unique so not much fodder use out of them aside from a targeted custom which I can't think of anybody I need that looks similar to these.

    Why did they make Edgin and Doric so hard to find? You'd think those 2 would be the more popular characters.

    doric has been hanging around gamestops here for awhile...xenk too, but edgin had been notoriously difficult to spot...and that was bad since he was the main protagonist but they relegated him to wave 2

    That's what I was wondering. At first I was thinking they just didn't want to discount the Chris Pine figure, but he was hard to spot at regular retail and he was late to even show up on Amazon. Maybe there was some issue with the rights to Pine's likeness that caused the figure to be delayed and get a short run? I don't know, just spit balling here.

    I am just now watching the movie today and damnit now I want an owlbear. Wish I had grabbed one during this sale as $15 is likely the cheapest it will have ever been.
