Cost estimates of unreleased Bones

Recommended Posts

Hye everybody!

 

I'm curious if anybody has any thoughts on the market prices of the minis in Bones 3. In particular I've ben agonizing over the Stoneskull expansion. There's a lot of things I want out of it but also a lot of things I don't care about. I'm just not sure if it's going to be a better value to get it now or wait until general release to pick and choose what I want. If I knew how much each figure would cost after general release I might be able to figure it out. So I figured I might as well ask. How much do you think the various pieces in the sets will cost individually?

Scorpio's pretty much right. It boils down to "how bad do you want it, and how soon?" My sole complaint with Kickstarter Bones is that they take a bit between fulfillment and retail blisters. I understand this is because ReaperBryan takes them all home and spreads them on the floor and rolls around in them laughing, as opposed to distributing them to retail outlets...

 

I always suspected this was the case...

I thought he set them all up and then rampaged through them like BryanZilla.

I doubt if even Reaper has the answers yet, but you can do some comparisons with what's already been released.  Small Bones like the goblins are currently $1.99, human sized figures are $2.99, the larger dragons and such are in the $20-$30 and up range.  I think the stitch golems and the temple dragon are out in metal now, so you can gauge their size and compare to medium size things that have been released. 

 

If you pledged and can get the set at $50 it's going to be an incredible savings over retail.

So I guess it comes down to if I want at least half of the minis in the set….. Damn, I'm still conflicted. >.<

VERY rough estimates (Keep in mind I am in Canada so my thoughts may be off but I am trying to base on reaper website prices)

 

Behir: around $12-$20 (depends on how large he is)

Brain in a jar: around $3

Succubus: around $3

Large bear: around $5 (hard to tell how large it is)

tree thing: $3

Gremlins: pack for $3ish

armadillo thing: $5

stich golem: $5

mini stich golems: $3 each

large minotaur: $5

monster thing (315): $7

Temple dragon: $8

317 plant thing: $3

319 plant dragon: $6

318 plant thing: $3

Kobolds: $4 for the set

Bandits: $2.50 each

naga: $5

flesh golem: $5

veggie pygmies: $2.50 each

Robot: $5

swamp troll: $5

 

I may be overinflating these a bit since typically at retail here they are much more expensive than reaper website prices and then there is exchange rate etc if I buy them from website... or I may be undervaluing them as I overcompensate. Anyway that's my rough guess based on general released bones prices (which could very well change cause inflation is a thing!)

 

If you look at bones released today you see a general pricing trend:

 

Small figures: $2.99-$3.50

tiny figures: set for $3-$4 depending on number in set 

medium large figures: $5-$7

large figures: $7-$12

mid-large dragons and other huge items:$10-$20

large dragons: depends how big, varies wildly

Half of the MASS of the minis. You have to factor figure size in.

 

Also that's if you PAY retail + tax. If you pay less than that through online discounts, no tax and possibly free shipping, the set needs to be more than 50% worthwhile to you. 

 

I don't need any more cultists, I dislike Reaper's Gug, I make my own terrain and I'm in no way interested in oversized (heroic scale) 1920's investigators, so the Cthulhu Myyhos expansion just won't be worth it for me.

I figure if I buy them all, it will all work out in my favor in the end. (Especially if I spread the purchase out over each paycheck for months and months).

 

All the Bones are belong to me.

I prefer to put mine in piles and Scrooge McDuck through them.

The next-to-last Bones 2 New Release has been announced. One release remains!

And this is a fine freaking example of the sort of wait one will have for 'That One Model'. This time it's looking to be the Bones Goroloth, next time, I'm betting the Behir...

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      Hello forum family, I wanna share with ya all my most recent fatigue: Marthragul!
      I was in doubt if painting it into a realistical Earth dragon, or something more colourful... The Magenta won! :D 
      And I chose to don't cut corners, so no drybrush, no washes, no feathering... just dear, old layering, shading and glazing 
      ...cause I'm a fast painter, as you know 

      And, yeah! This took me almost a month of at least two hours per day... basically I hate this dragon now 

      Enough talking, time for pics :D




      I really hope you like it, if you have any question do not hesitate :)
      As always every C&C is more than welcome.
      Thank you :)

      I painted this guy up, despite having eyes on Gale Force 9's Behir for my personal use. Decided to go ahead and liquidate it in a certain auction site, but so far, no takers. Ah, well. It's still a nice looking mini, so it doesn't hurt to have one around until I manage to finish painting the GF9 Behir... Comments, recommendations, and suggestions are appreciated.

      So this is fun, because I can show you folks the Christmas presents I'm working on, so it's like I get to give them twice. Anyway, here's my take on her, really enjoyed going for a winter feel.
