    $2000 to go! Will the MSP goal be revealed tonight?! Of course it would then be another $40K to actually get to it, BUT STILL EXCITING!

    Ah, you know I'm just giving you a hard time. It was a perfectly reasonable thing to say at the time. It actually serves as a great reminder that we, as the customers, really have no grounds to tell Reaper what to do with their business. We may often thing Idea X is a fantastic idea, but it's not our own livelihood that we're playing with. Reaper did the smart thing at the time, and now they are doing the smart thing again; telling us to put our money where our mouths are if we really want to see those unpainted plastics happen faster, I couldn't be more thrilled to see this project coming together the way it is, nor does it lessen my love for the little metal guys in my collection. ~v

    Well, your not alone on that one. I suggested they do just that in the BONES wish list thread when they first announced the line. I need cheap antagonists in large numbers!

    Oh, I know, Matt. And at the time, I'd have agreed with you. But it's pretty damn funny that we're now in the middle of what could easily become a 1/2 a million dollar kickstarter project for something that was basically a non-factor 5 years ago. This is also a great quote from that thread: Nah, no demand here. ~v

    That's exactly the appeal I see for Bones as well -- I'm willing to shell out more for pewter for those UNUSUAL characters, such as the heroes, or "star" NPCs, but for hordes of zombies, giant rats, evil pirates, ninjas, or whatever, I've often resorted to cheaper plastics (such as Mage Knight / HeroClix / HorrorClix) even if the quality is inferior, simply because it would be prohibitively expensive otherwise. (And for my BIG monsters, when I've run fantasy games in the past, I've often used action figures, such as McFarlane Dragons, re-based so they can stand on the table.) But with the new Bones line, it looks like I've got a nice, new viable option for cheap "hordes" and more affordable "very big bads." :D

    SPOILER ALERT - In the first one "THE HOBBIT", brave hobbit Bilbo meets some dwarves, fights trolls, meets Gollum, kills a dragon, does some other stuff. In the second one, "THE HOBBIT 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO", a developer tries to bulldoze the Shire's community recreation center. The dwarves and Bilbo become breakdancers and have a dance contest/concert to raise some money and try to stop it. In the third film "HOBBIT 3D" (oddly enough NOT in 3D), the tricksy hobbitses build a water park with underwater tunnels and lagoons. As it prepares for opening, a young great white shark infiltrates the park from the sea, seemingly attacking and killing water skiers and park employees. Once the baby shark is captured, it becomes apparent that it was the mother, a much larger shark who also entered the park, who was the real killer. Snape kills Gandalf and Bella becomes a vampire.

    It's a whole lot EASIER to cut the broccoli bases off the Bones figures, based on my experimentation so far. All you need is a hobby knife and fairly little pressure. The plastic cuts very easily. These figures are definitely plastic -- and definitely on the bendy side (though this is more noticeable with thin, spindly figures such as the skeletons than with thicker figures such as the werewolf, gnoll, or bugbear). Pinning drills work best if you are drilling into a THICK facing area. I had some trouble trying to do pinning holes in narrower limbs (say, for a hand swap), due to the flexibility of the plastic. I've been told that a better method in that case is to heat a needle over a candle, and then poke the needle into the plastic; the heat will melt the plastic enough to make a hole that you can use to insert wire for pinning. I have not tried this method myself, however (as I need to get more Bones to experiment with ;) ).

    That's not anywhere *near* the end of the trail! We haven't even opened the crypt at the bottom and shown you what's inside!
