Love the update... especially since I am getting everything showcased.... One disappointment is the dire lion. Seems a departure from the concept.

 I have to agree, I do like the concept a lot more. It’s a shame, but it is what it is I guess.

The thing that caught my eye was this: "This model's discoloration is a result of the recycled material used in the molding process.  This is not considered a defect." 

 

Can you tell us more about using recycled material? I think it is awesome to reuse and recycle. How much Bones material is recycled plastic as opposed to new? Because if Bones is yanking plastic out of the system to make us fun stuff, I like it even more. Are the blisters also recycled (are they recycleable for that matter)? 

 

I used to work in plastic molding in the automotive industry. The recycled portion of the plastic raw material is usually limited to 10% of the mix, and it has to come from a trustworthy source. You don't want to mix types of plastic (PVC, polystyrene, poly-carbonate, etc), and you want to avoid contamination from other materials, such as oil or metal. Most of the time (where I worked) the "recycled" material was from prototype runs,  incomplete fills of molds or other defects from the same plant that were then reground and re-introduced to the supply stream, or from another plant owned by the same supplier.

 

Now there are some products that can contain more recycled material; disposable plastic packaging is one such product.

Understandable issues. Figured I'd ask though!

I, for one, am very happy that the caribou is still strapped to her back.


I hadn't even noticed it was back until you pointed it out!  I am glad it is, though...random baggage like that always makes Giants seem...giant!

The caribou antlers are slightly larger on the figure than in the concept sketch *GASP!*.

 

Changes between concept art and physical figures are understandable and actually necessary at times, I'm still quite pleased with them and I'll be very happy when when they get into my hands come February-ish.

I'm just hoping we see a Bones caribou in the future. I need a noble steed for my wood elf lord! 

 

February seems to close, and yet so far... I should probably start making some space for the massive box that'll be coming my way... :unsure:

      I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Didn't see a post about this yet:

      BattleFX is a bundle comprising of several 3D designs of dynamic effects and destructible terrain for wargames. ready for you to print.
      Every item of the bundle has been carefully designed and tested to be 3D printed. this kickstarter includes a STL pack of each pledge, ready to be printed using your own 3D printer - or alternatively, using online 3D printing services.
      After working extensively on the movie FX sector, we realized we could apply that experience to our wargamme hobby - and taking things to the next level.
      We have been working very hard and have already finished designing and testing every one of the items on our basic pledge, therefore guaranteeing that YOU will get it. However, we want to continue creating and offering you new, epic effects for your wargames - hence the advance stretchgoals!
        /*Included in Kaboom Pledge and above*\ 
       It has the widest range from trusters to muzzles flashes and smoky Fx!
      S - Muzzles Flashes S - Trusters S - Smoky things!  We are getting more serius here big booms and more complex Fx:
      M - Big weapongs, explosion and Sci-fi Fx M - Smoke Shell, lateral atack, Sci-fi barrier and barrels Fx  The Big Boys. It takes some time to print, but it also turns your war gaming table into a real battlefield.
      L - Smoke grenade, Orbital atack L - Fire, water and ground explosions  The Kickstarter Star Product, the Epic Fx! Destructible, reassemblable scenography and cool lighting.
