So who else is dumping Sophie for more Bones?

It was with some regret that I traded in my Biker Sophie. I mean, when the Kickstarter first started, I was mostly looking at some of the fantasy figures and trying to sort out how I could modify a few to work with non-traditional fantasy settings (modern horror, Weird West/Deadlands, steampunk-fantasy, etc.), and at the very least I could just leave the wings off Sophie and have a biker. (Granted, a biker who can't leave her bike, which rather limits the utility for roleplay, but perhaps I could find another model similarly attired for "Standing Biker Sophie" with luck.)

 

But ... $25 worth of trade-in? At that point, I had to consider: Would I pay $25 for this figure? Honestly? Not really. Especially not when that $25 of options goes a LONG WAY in this Kickstarter.

 

Some day, the Kickstarter Sophie might be a rare collector's item, etc., etc., but I've never had the skill to cash in on "collectors' items" anyway -- and I doubt it would still have that status after I'd inevitably painted it at some point. "Kickstarter Sophie" is the sort of figure that, if I could get it on the cheap, I would find a use for in my games, no matter how weird the model, just for the sheer novelty of it -- but compared to options such as Nethyrmaul or a figure case complete with foam liners, I just couldn't justify it.

I traded her in for both sets. No real gaming use, and so many other, fun minis... I ended up getting at least one of every optional mini except for the Jabberwock, Nethyrmaul, and the deep dwellers. Multiples of some of the others.

 

So... many.. minis...

The only thing I'm getting are the metal Sophies. Some of us don't want plastic in our collections. And, yes, they will go on the self and into my games. Fair warning "Twighlight Demons" (You know who you are). Also, those Sophies are already past the "Martin paint examples" stage.

 

PS., Sounds like there will be extras lying around. So here's hoping I see a couple in the melt bin at next years Reapercon.

Unlikely; the people that kept theirs in their pledge probably won't dump them. But, I've seen stranger things show up at the melt table in the past, so you never know.
