Just add a piece of brass pole to the scenery behind her and viola!

... Pay no heed to proud thoughts, famous champion. Now the flowering of your strength is but for a while. After a while, the time will suddenly come that disease or the sword's edge will cut off your power. Either fire's grasp or flood's surge or blade's bite or spear's flight. Or vicious age, or the flash of your eyes will gutter and burn out! It will be all at once, great campaigner, that death will overpower you.
It's terrifying! Without enough caffeine your body undergoes these hours of partial paralysis and hallucinations! :shudder:

In short, Reaper doesn't do LE any more, Asylum does...

Well, that's an interesting development! Setting up a separate company insulates Reaper from any negative developments if the plastic mini business goes bad, which is a good thing for Reaper. And it should speed up the process of getting LE products on the shelves. I wonder if this will delay the four packs due out next month?

Hopefully not, I am desperately awaiting the opportunity to part with my cash!
I've also ordered some figs direct from here so I can see how long they take to the UK to compare that with Paizo's shipments. That's how desperate I am to have them!

When I spoke with the Reaper rep at the booth at Origins last year, they said that the biggest hindrance to dragons is making a cost effective blister to hold the fig, but that they were envisioning as many of their models making it to the Legendary Encounters line. As for Asylum, as they are owned entirely by Reaper (basically a restructure and redivision of resources) I should not think that there will be any delay in the upcoming August releases.
Will it be risky or difficult for Reaper to make LE version of dragons?
DDM line still has only few huge dragons,
Huge Red x2
Huge Black with a rider (widely disliked because of the rider)
Huge Blue Dracolich
Aspect of Bahamut
Aspect of Tiamat
The next huge set is not released until this August and will only has 8 huge minis. Even if 2 of them are Huge Chromatic Dragons, they still can't yet provide all the 5 Huge Chromatic Dragons without rider. Also, older DDM minis are hard to get. And/or outrageousely expensive on e-bay. Huge Red Dragon from Giants of Legend set costs about $60-80. The newer ones are much cheaper and somewhere around $20 or so, though.
Most of the Dragons in DHL line are Huge sized ones. And smaller box set dragons such as Ebonwrath or Stormwing can be usable as either Huge or Colossal dragons.
I like to assemble and paint metal dragon models of Reaper as they are really good in quality. But people will definitely buy plastic huge dragons if available in reasonable price and can be bought in retail-price instead of fighting betting-war on e-bay.
Also, Large Dragons will sell well, too. In 4e MM, you can find 2 age categories for large dragons of each colors. And the weakest one is L3 solo. So, we will see more large dragons in sessions now.

One thing I might like to see is some of those Chronoscope characters be made in LE format - mainly ones like NOVA Sgt. and NOVA guard - the cannonfodder ones.
I'll second the townsfolk packs. Tavern, street vendors and shopkeeps, vagabonds, angry mob, and the list goes on.
It's enough to paint my character models, NPC's, and the encounters. Re-usable set dressing townsfolk would be a luxury.
Sign me up too for this; just note that I'd also like a wider range of townsfolk such as farmers and merchants. Oh; some of these should be female - and NOT strumpets!
U could use the Moroccan merchant from chronoscope for a trader

2) townsfolk and regular people are a GREAT idea. one of the more challenging events I played at DDXP in Ft. Wayne last spring was an adventure where we had to protect a noble's family from the bad guys. then we had a skill challenge trying to save townsfolk from a zombie invasion. townsfolk have so many uses, even though they wouldn't necessarily be used for warfare.
3) spell effects are another great idea. our wizard is often casting a wall of flame or a tower of electricity or grabbing someone with his mage hand or bigby's icy grasp. it would be helpful to have prepainted minis for this task which so far we've been covering with markers and modeling clay.
4) I just can't seem to afford the $$$$ dwarven forge objects (tables, chairs, casks, crates, etc) but these items would be quite helpful for encounters in buildings and streets and dungeons -- either as obstacles that are in the way, improvised weapons during bar fights, or as in one encounter we had at Origins, packages that had to be retrieved and protected when a cart lost its wheel and bandits surrounded us.
5) how about tombstones and statues and stuff we'd find in a graveyard? again, such items would lend themselves to multiple purchases.
The party hasn't really started until the dragon arrives.

Are there still people who actually think Reaper/Asylum is going to ever make these.
