I'm sure you'll have no problems moving a few copies if this ever delivers (and I do think it will, it appears to be closing in on the finish line). The minis alone should be worth the price, the finished samples look great and aren't like anything I've seen elsewhere. I have one mini I got with Folklore, here's a pic someone from Middara posted of it on BGG with the Middara version (Middara is the smaller one):

Surprisingly not

 

(people in Europe who've got Midarra reported receiving them, and I've also got a DHL account which would normally email me too for any delivery coming via them but nothing from that either)

 

So I was pleasantly surprised with the knock at the door

I received a very heavy box last night. Not even half the size of my bones box, but 10.3 kg nonetheless. Also, box 2870 of 4710, so I guess it's a limited edition. And only 3 years and 1 month late. I didn't even open the main box, drowning as I am in Bones. There was a promo box of stretch goals though, so here are some pics. 1299142958_2019-04-0407_22_31.jpg.cbb45b9f52cafa3eb79168ff1da2064b.jpg

As you can see, the minis are taller and a bit thinner than the Reaper guy. The big guy is a summons. I don't know who the plant-based character is supposed to be, but there are four in the box. The other figures have one or two at most (at least in the add on box).

They are interesting figures, definitely non-standard. The first one has a huge handbag. The second is attacking with a sword whilst smoking a cigarette and holding a tankard. The third one is Black Wolf, a crossover mini from Demigods Evolution, who will probably end up being the only thing I receive related to that project (Middara had a few crossovers, I received one from Folklore: The Affliction and Vampire Hunters). The last one isn't the best angle, but I had to show off her massive tail.

The first two are twin summons, oddly they are reversed from the neck down (even the fasteners on their clothes) but their heads are identical, with strands of hair over their left eyes. The pirate hat guy looks like Sabertooth from the X-Men thanks to his size and mutton chops. The fourth mini is quite nice, she has elf ears and reading glasses, the detail is quite good. The final one is a faceless Animate.

 

Overall the minis are quite nice. They are unique in my experience, influenced by fantasy, anime and thanks to the back story the real world as well. Several minis in this bunch are part of a pirate themed expansion. They seem quite sturdy, and not too much flash. Some of the factory assembly isn't perfect (note the shoulders on the second twin), but none I've seen look terrible. The kickstarter may have taken forever, but it delivered good value for the investment.
