Whoa! HUGE news from Reaper! 7 Years, 1 Month ago  
Ska

The Doctor Who cards might be UK only. Just browse to ebay.co.uk and do a search for Doctor Who - you will get hundreds of hits.

They are for approx. half a year. On 28.th of February they added a second (smaller) series. The market for the first series was just collapsing.

For more information - go to Wikipedia. There are all the details - with links to lists of cards, etc.

Today, Paramount and Disney are positively rabid about their copyrights and trademarks, to the point of staging police raids at Star Trek conventions and legally barring elementary schools from painting Disney characters in the windows.
Fun fact: go over the history of copyright law in the United States -- the amount of time that can pass before something moves into public domain has gotten longer and longer -- each time the Disney copyright on Mickey Mouse was about to expire...

I took mister pokey stick out about a week ago and jabbed it into the "Legendary Encounters™, The coming SOON prepainted plastic miniatures." Over at reaper, and have stired up that thread again.


The up shot is that after a week we have some news on the next set :D

date=Apr 26 2007, 10:20 AM
The next 2 sets of Legendary Encounters Releases will include Goblins, Zombies, A Gnoll, An Ettin, A Demoness, Kobolds, A Bathalian, Ghosts, A Succubus, and A Giant Worm. Would those be helpful?

Nice one, Ghenghis !!

Keep us posted on when the pre-painted minis come out. I'll have to check those out! I'm really curious what they will look like. I'm one of those guys that cannot paint minis...but boy can I BUY them!

Can you give any info on the qualities of the plastic being used (hard, soft, smelly, not smelly, etc)?
Similar to action figure plastic. Does that help?

This is from that thread....

Here's a special, super-secret sneak preview from the con...

Bryan says I'm trying to take over the title of "Reaper Tease" with that shot, but I think I'm just... cruel.

I promise, better pics tomorrow.

Having done some looking around on the Reaper page, i have to say that the first mini on the left there looks a lot like this one
and the one on the far right like this one

The second one could be 02283: Orc Spearman
Third 02131: Orc Bowman
The one in the back row left is a dead on for 02416: Cave Troll
Think the middle one is the miniator, but it looks different than the 14007: Minotaur of the Maze or any other Minotaur i can find by Reaper.
Last one on left in back 02832: Ogre Chieftain

Better picture up



A few that couldn't be made out before, (another orc and skelly) that also look like sculpts that were out before.

Very interesting!

1) That they went with mostly previously-issued sculpts.
2) That the paint jobs are quite good, though these are undoubtedly protos, not actual releases.
3) Still, the amount of color is impressive -- even if the quality dips for actual release, having that many colors on the figures is impressive. The ogre chieftan and the minotaur, at least, feature more paint apps than we normally get from most WOTC figs (other than rares)

I'm excited by these pics -- while I'd have liked seeing brand new sculpts, these look good to me and confirm my expectations . This is gonna be a neat line!

They look pretty good so far! Of course those are the re-painted ones! I'd really love to see what they look like right out of the bag/blister. Guess we only have another month to wait, eh? Weren't they supposed to release them in June?

Yes - those look nice, but then so did many of the minis they use to show us on the DDM previews...then when you opened your box - wham!
