  1. Bones 3 at Retail?

    Ugh, any non-packaged options?
  2. Bones 3 at Retail?

    I understand that, but there is a release date for nearly everything else out to July 2018 (including other large minis). I'm well versed in "SoonTM", but when we're already looking 9-10 months out I'm hoping for a little more.
  3. Bones 3 at Retail?

    If it's the one that is going to become 77514, info from one of my distributors says sometime in February 2018. Hmm, now for my own question... 77581 Froghemoth I have a customer who is waiting (im)patiently for this to be released, but I don't see it in my distributors listings.
  4. Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    They started to show up at distributor warehouses this week...
  5. Minis we would like to see

    I had a customer looking for a baby owlbear. Perhaps a familiar pack of baby monsters... Like 'Lil 'Hlu.
  6. Where has all the metal gone?

    Yeah, it's not just Reaper. I had to pick up copies of Eclipse Phase from Posthuman Studios at Gen Con because my distributor still didn't have it two months after it had been back in print. It took them over a month after that before they got it in. So that was over 3 months to get it in stock... Good thing it wasn't a special order or anything. Oh wait, it was.
  7. Department of Acquisitions

    No minis and no name drop...
  8. Where has all the metal gone?

    I asked about ordering the Bones Rack Deal for my store through my distributor and was basically told they would order it when they got around to it. Neither of my major distributors have updated their Rack Deal listings. Needless to say I ordered it direct from Reaper. I've noticed *some* outages (and some apparently got NIC'ed), but the majority of Bones are available from Reaper (and metal is cast on site, so I'm assuming it's readily available, I don't sell much of that). A store will give up a couple of points ordering direct (and it won't count towards volume with a distributor), but we can get it. If they're saying they can't get it direct from Reaper, well, I don't want to call them liars, but...I don't know how to finish that sentence.
  9. Where has all the metal gone?

    Thanks. The change was mostly groan inducing, since I spent time figuring out which Rack Deal worked better for me and then the rack deals went from A or B to All or Top 50, not something I ordered and showed up different... I needed to do inventory anyway.

    FUNDED! Thank you! There's still an hour and a half if you want to get in on it...
  11. Old Packaging discussion

    IIRC, someone gave me their paint rack because they weren't using it. I didn't get much use out of it either, but I did use it at my store for a while. I still have it, hidden up on the "top shelves" (where product goes to die)...

    Magic, Legend of the 5 Rings, and Star Wars artist Drew Baker not only has a playmat level, he has also offered to join anyone as part of their group if you choose the RPG session or private booster draft levels. Less than 2 days to go! If you're local or even semi-local, please help out. There's even a level for 4 pint glasses with shipping if you're not local! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/978735882/dragon-snack-games-buffalo-tabletop-hobby-game-sto/
  13. Where has all the metal gone?

    Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter... Are these the same Rack Deals you have on the website? As long as the distributor doesn't wait to combine it with their regular orders, I may be better off doing it through them... Side note, you changed the Bones Rack Deals recently, messing up my plans. *shakes fist* I can probably find a few that I should return...

    Just wanted to point out a newer pledge level that I added after the campaign started - the $60 "Miniature of the Month" level. Once a month, get a miniature (that we choose) with an MSRP of between $4.99 and $8.99. You can pick them up if you're local or semi-local and stop by our monthly Paint Day. We also have a $750 level that let's you display your poster or advertising for at least a year (subject to approval), if you run a gaming company and want to get your message out to gamers while they're in store looking to spend their money. Obviously I will carry at least some of the products of any company who backs at this level, if appropriate. Remember, this was only a 2 week campaign, so there's only about a week left. Thanks! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/978735882/dragon-snack-games-buffalo-tabletop-hobby-game-sto

    I suppose there may be a store I haven't heard about, but it's been a few years since I've heard of one. I love visiting gaming stores, even before it was my business. Some stores, especially Magic-centric (or Magic only) shops, do very little to promote themselves (and even with promotion, I know there are people near me who've never heard about me).
