Mega Minis is expanding the line of Modern things, with like uhm a Toilet!?!

Sink, Urinal, Toilet, Toilet with occupant and a Living Room set, Couch, Recliner, End Table, Lamp, TV and er Dumpster

I like the Couch, Recliner, and Lamp, if these were resin and not metal i'd buy them by the buket..., the Sink is and Toilet are kind of cool as well as the Urinal...

I hadn't seen those yet. I've actually been looking for a couple 25/28mm toilets to dress up a balsa and foam core space spaceship I'm building for our Traveller adventure. I have plenty of bunks and computer consoles now thanks to the Gamma set but still need a few things so I don't have an empty ship.

Mega Minis makes some cool oddball pieces both in their Dungeon Decor line and in the modern one. I picked up some of their pool tables recently to dress up a bar.

Yeah, I actually like the idea behind a lot of the things they make, my only problem is that it's metal, I just don't like metal mins and scenery. Some people do, i don't, so if these were resin or plastic i would buy a TON of these, as it stands i look at them and everynow and then i get a little crazy (as in the doing the same action and expecting a different result crazy) and buy some metal and just end up not likeing it... So While i want these I know i will be disapointed if I buy even 1, let alone spend a bunch on multiples. I mean i Want toilets, etc as heck they are kind of needed... The couchs, and recliners are something I so want as it is furniture that isn't WOOD, which I want for my Modern/Future games.
Darn I may be crazy soon and buy a few just to have them, as i can't really wait for someone to male non metal versions as for some reason I am in the miniority in not likeing metal!

GS -

You're not as much of a minority as you think you are; I don't like metal minis either. I want painted resin or plastic too!

Can i enquire what is the attraction of resin?

I have seen some mini companies starting to produce resin minis as well, and usually at a premium in price when compared with their metal versions. Are they better? Hold more detail? Or is the attraction just to avoid fiddling with lead?

I know when I pick up plastic minis, they just don't hold up. Missing the weight/balance experienced with their metal counterparts. And this is only counteracted by having weighted bases :) So curious as to why you guys are going the other way?

Ah two things I prefer Plastic Miniatures and Resin Scenery.

For miniatures (and to a lesser degree resin) it is the opposite reasons you give for why you like metal, I don't game where I live so i have to cart my miniatures around for either RPG's or Skirmish and the low weight plastic minis are easy to transport. Non of the Platic miniatures I use have issues with balance, in fact I have had more issues with metal (Reaper Broccilli bases) falling over than plastics. Then add in the storage issues of metal over plastic (foam cases, or shelves) versus a "box" be it shoe box, or other form of cardboard box and i like my largely indestructable plastics over easly bent, and scuffed metal.
One of the things I Hate about the complaints of the Pre-painted plastics like the Wotc's that some give about them being all bendy is i have NEVER seen a Reaper mini in a store that isn't bendy in the sword or staff area, just like like the Plastics. But it's never seen as a down side in reaper etc minis. But the process to unbend that metal minis is more delicate and time consuming than to unbend the plastic, and with the plastic there is far less chance that the weapon will snap off.
But everyone complains about how bendy plastics are, but in my experince many metal are just as bendy, and the plastics take less work to bend them out of shape (a drop of a metal can bend snap parts, and break it, but depending on the plastic mini that won't happen). So i prefer plastic over metal for it's light weight and what comes with it.

As for scenery the reasons i prefer resin over metal is that it is mostly lighter weight, and is more resistant to breaking, bending than metal. But the largest is weight and ease of transport due to lighter weight.
