I was checking out the Alliance Distributors web site tonight. On a whim, looked up Asylum Miniatures and found these listed (not yet available):

 

NYA ASY 20036 Herrerasaurus (dinosaur) $7.49

NYA ASY 20037 Kentrosaurus (dinosaur) $7.49

NYA ASY 20038 Cerberus $17.49

NYA ASY 20039 Cyclops $17.49

 

I'm pretty sure the Cerebus and Cyclops are mispriced and will be $7.49, not $17.49.

 

Regards,

Hi

Just wondering if the Dinos are sized to scale with the rest of the minis?

Also, will I be able to order them here or will they be through the Asylum site?

Thanks in advance.

I'm only guessing, but I think, based on price, the dinos will probably be around the size of the LE Young Red Dragon. Once released, they will be in the Reaper store like the other LE ppms.

Actually I think those dinos are Procon Collect-A dinosaurs, that Reaper's parent company Hobby-Q distributes. It probably was a test image or one that got cross posted into Legendary Encounters. Aside from that they are around 1/48 scale, which is a bit large in scale for the minis, but close enough for eyeballing them. They are also the best darn vinyl dino models in existance outside of the now defunct Battat. I have many of them.

Hi, about this;

Sorry for being impatient, but

How long till they get to the Reaper store?

Thanks

It's very likely it will take 30-35 days, and only if they don't get stuck at customs.

Generally, when the new release hits its street date, the web goes live within a day or maybe two.

 

edit:

Sorry, the official release date is 05.09.2011

Um, they don't "get stuck in customs" when we ship them from our factory to our distributors. I think you confused my statement with "they're shipping to US from our overseas suppliers". Allow me to be clearer.

 

We got the product physically on our dock back in JANUARY when I posted that they were in, and we had to wait 90 days to release them because of the rules our distributors impose on us. When April came, we released the first 2 of the new 4 models - the Rats and the Gnoll. Last week, My employees shipped to our distributors the Kobolds and the Dwarf. These will go live in our online store in just a few calendar days (Monday, today being Saturday) - and at that time, they will also be available in your FLGS, or at least available for order if your particular FLGS did not pre-order them.

 

We have a standing order right now for another shipment from our overseas supplier, and I will announce here, again, when those come in, but they won't go online for 3-4 months after that. Saves us the embarrassment of saying "available in June" and then them not arriving until July.

Not that it's any of my business, but why do your distributors not want you to release product for 90 days?

They require 90 day advance notice of any new item, or they refuse to stock it.
