The line that's going to "replace" the Dragons line from McFarlane has been shown.

There are pics here:

Personally, I find it very "meh." These are neat enough figures for people who love fantasy, love action figures, and just want it all. But I don't really care enough to want generic fantasy action figures -- they won't work with my DF stuff, and they aren't quite "classic D&D" enough to warrant placing on a bookshelf near my core rule books. Even the dragons don't really excite me -- though perhaps I should admit that, after everything the Dragons line has done, I'm a little exhausted with all the dragons and at this point I'm pretty darn picky. I haven't picked up the Beowulf dragon yet, and that one seemed really nice. But at this point... meh.

Anyhoo, just a heads up for those who care.

I agree - on all fronts. I like the basalisk - but the other figures don't much do it for me...nor do I have a need to collect them...

Pass.
Waste of my money.
I'll go buy more DF, instead; it's MUCH more useful, and between games, can sit in the box and doesn't collect dust. All in all, a MUCH BETTER INVESTMENT! Better quality sculpture, better quality resin, better paint jobs, just plain better!
You said it best, L;
Meh.

Yeah, in retrospect I think I may be interested in the basilisk, if it isn't too large or too small and in general if it looks neat. The Eternal dragon from the line looks adequate, too, with more generous eyes. Not spectacular, but if the scale is right it could be a decent figure to have.

I think part of the problem is just general dragon fatigue -- if those two had come out in the very first few waves, back when getting dragons was actually a bit challenging, I'd be far more enthused.

L;

It's why they encourage new employees at Hershey to eat all the chocolate they want on the line; it only lasts a week or two.
OVERLOAD!!!!

I used to love Eggs Benedict; ate them every weekend for breakfast. Saturday AND Sunday.
I've gotten to the point where I can barely STAND Hollandaise Sauce!
Guess why?

Dragons seem to have hit you the same way; wanna take a SWAG at why?

Don't worry; you'll eventually get over it. Or not.

See ya - and Happy Holidays anyway!
