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...

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 
       

       
      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
       
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      Another Bones figure. I don't paint many non-humanoids, but I liked the way this guy turned out.

      He's about a year old now, but hey, I have to start with something here! Happily accepting critique (especially on photographing the finished work!)

      Happy Painting, y'all!

      Looking for suggestion on which of the Bones dragons would be a decent match for the Pathfinder Cloud Dragon for use in the next book of the Giantslayer campaign that I'm currently running. I have maybe a month or two before they encounter this bad beast.  He is considered an Adult dragon, size: Huge.
