Reaper Online Store Revision


Recommended Posts

I've been using the Amazon plug-in, and I've set up a separate Miniatures wish list specifically for those items. It takes a bit more curation than a real wish list, in part because it's not usually sure which image on a page goes with the item you're intending to add to your wishlist, but it's pretty easy to look through the images and choose the right one.

 

(It took a while for me to figure this out, so some of the items are rather lacking in specificity in my list.)

 

I also have a wishlist at Miniature Giant that works just as you'd expect. Their in-stock rate is lower than I'd prefer, though.

Bryan has mentioned before that there's some behind-the-scenes work going on to improve the store, and as I get boxes upon boxes of minis, it's getting harder and harder to avoid duplicates during impulse spending.

 

Is there any way 'Bones I', 'Bones II', 'Bones III', and 'CAV Bones' could get added as icons as part of that system, right along with 'requires assembly' and the other ones being worked on?

We have no plans to implement that granularity of iconography, although our Tagging system would support that kind of Tag, I think.

And as I think about it, determining which is which is pretty straightforward form a pure list-making standpoint. On the spot maybe not so much, but if you're talking inventories for list purposes, the below post is sufficient.

 

Bones I is everything 77017-77196, 80001-80025 and 89001-89016

Bones II is everything 77197+, 80025+, 89017+, and Numenera and Savage Worlds Bones, which I admit the number ranges escape my mind at the moment.

I think I've said this before, but it would be really helpful if you had a link between the Bones and metal versions of the same figure. This would facilitate finding pictures of painted versions of "the same" figure, allow people who want the metal version and already have the Bones version to find it more easily, and allow people who have the Bones version and don't want the metal version to notice more easily.

 

Which reminds me that I need to buy the metal Mason Thornwarden (one version, anyway). Painting the Bones version made me want the better detail on recessed areas that metal usually has.

If we're really looking pie in the sky desires, how about a "you already bought this" reminder if you're logged in?

 

Especially if I could upload a database of all the figures I bought at stores, too.

 

But Ub3r_n3rd might be right.  ^_^

 

I think the customer service advantage, always a Reaper focus, might be enough to allow it, though. I'll just pick the next item on the wishlist*, after all.

Why would they do that? They want us to buy buy buy! BWAHHAHAHA!

 

Because anyone who has few enough minis from Reaper to worry about it is going to spend their money regardless, and Reaper would rather happy customers with the minis they want. Those who don't worry about it (because they have all 20 of Reapers minis already), won't worry about it.
