The bog monster thing looks like it would make a good shambling mound. Maybe some of those huminoids could be good Ogre Magi?

Here's an interesting site with scale comparisons that I refer to sometimes. It's helped me figure out all the confusing (for me) scales that are out there. With the above discussion, it seems like a good place to mention this.

All

I just had a browse. Accoording to the FAQ the scale - not the size - is 40 mm and they say, these will 'tower over other figures' - meaning they actually are bigger.

For the cost - the RRP according to FAQ is $24.99 for a starter set (fur fixed figures plus dice and other bits) and $14.99 for a booster pack (three random figures).

Looking at size and cost I reckon there might be some interesting figures for monsters - but otherwise I can't see a reason for myself to get any.

huh, the Person at the Upper Deck booth said that they were $29.99 for a booster, they may have given the wrong price (she might have been thinking of the Starter) and/or is has changed at some point. I know that Faq has been changed at least once i looked a long time ago and there was no mention of scale at the time, it was just "40mm" in size, to a question of something like how large are they. Remember some of the discussions are from back in Feb of this year, so they have updated that FAQ a few times since then.

Back to the price ... we all balked at the price when we heard it, we said something to the fact that it seemed steep compaired to other games of the like out there, and she went into a speel about some of other games (mentioning D&DM by name) and how yes you get fewer in a booster, but these were bigger and better painted, and saying something to the effect that a Blizzard/WoW fan would expect no less and not accept anything less than these high quality figures.

They may have dropped the price at some point to be more in line with the current market trends, but we were told $30.

GS, thanks for posting the pics! Maybe it's just me hungry for some great mini's for my DF layouts, but I think that all of those figures look pretty darn cool! The "Swamp-thing" and the "Water Elemental" looks good, but I really like the mini's in that last pic. The paint-jobs look detailed enough...

Thod, if you're correct with the pricing -- $14.99 for 3 mini's -- I'll be grabbing some of these...that is, as long as the scale isn't too gigantic in my DF settings.
