I hope it is miniature less. Chibi and Marvel will be my downfall. Trying to swear off CMON due to their other projects and the stupidly expensive shipping.

Your hopes are in vain, sir.

 

I found a preview vid that had some renders in it for the announced characters.  I'm not sure if it will be enough to get me to pull the trigger on a CMON project or not, but they've certainly got my attention.

The shipping really has gotten out of hand with CMON. We'll have to see how this turns out...

Shipping has been subsidized for so long that the real costs have been hidden (particularly for Americans).

 

I was so excited for this until I saw chibi which makes it a hard pass.

yes people are now seeing what shipping actually costs (which keeps rising fast too)

 

 I do like chibis but i'm not interested as the proportions on these are just not to my taste (thankfully)



Yeah- I shipped something in the latest box I got from CMON.  The stuff I was shipping was lighter, and I was shipping domestic, but it still cost $60.

I get the impression that CMON are the only ones charging actual shipping costs right now.

This is now live.

 

They've unlocked the first few models, and CMON are definitely taking some direction from the MCU: Blade, Shang-Chi, Ms. Marvel, Taskmaster, etc.

 

The base pledge is $60, the Infinity Stone expansion is $30.

 

want to, but I'm sensing a lot of add-ons.  That, and what's left of my common sense/restraint, may keep me out.  I still think it will be fun to watch, though.

=====================================================================================================================

For some reason, I can't add a new post, but I can edit this one...

 

Lots of KS Exclusive items.  That seals the deal for me...I loathe exclusives.  I don't mind promotional materials, special packaging, etc. but game play exclusives really rub me the wrong way.

Good thing they have minis because the gameplay looks fairly uninteresting.

So many KS exclusives it hurts.  It is clear how they want to drag you in on this.  Seven heroes (so far) you can only get if you pledge? Lordy, CMON.

Yeah, not big on the chibi's, either. Random guess is that WizKids has the rights for the 28mm sculpts.

 

Also, with the short-term economic impact of the coronavirus on China, most small and medium companies having cash reserves for up to two months, factories only being opened for essential items (definitely not plastic miniatures), and CMON itself located in Shanghai, one of the countries hit hard by the virus, I'm jumping off the fence. Maybe by the time the PM opens, everything will be fine, at least until it's not. Also not helping is that some miniatures I like are in the expansion sets, so I'd pay $25 for five miniatures, of which only one I want.

 

Well, at least today you have more choice in your Marvel game of choice. Back in ye olden days, a company would have exclusive rights for a boardgame, and, more often than not, the game wasn't worth playing. Now, you have, what five Marvel games to choose from? FFG's Marvel card game, SJG's Munchkin Marvel, HeroClix, that nonstandard scale miniatures game, and now Marvel Chibi.

Oh, man. I really wasn't sure what to expect with later add-ons, but now there's an Into the Spider-Verse add-on with Spider-Gwen in it. I'm going to have to buy that, for sure. Dang it...

      The Project

      This is our 12th Chibi miniatures project. Over the last 5 years at conventions, our Pony Chibi from our previous KickStarters are always the most popular figures and we love hearing the happy sounds of people seeing them for the first time in the display cases. Now as technology has greatly changed we wanted to add new ponies and accessories to the model line and now offer them to everyone as digital models to print at home for yourself!

      The Miniatures
      The digital models will be sent as STL one piece models within a month of the project ending. Models will be sent without supports (we will have a stretch goal to buy software and add supports to all the files).

      Due to Stretch Goal #1, the ponies will also be provided with STLs for the different components of the models, so you can use a free product like Meshmixer to mix and match parts from the different models to create your own ponies.

      In addition, if you want the models will be available as physical one piece 3-D prints as well in super high quality resin prints. Prints will be grey and will come with bases (as most are not free standing models)

      The miniatures will come in two sizes. The base pony figures will normally be 30mm tall to the top of the figurine's head and a couple large pony figures will normally be 50mm tall to the top of the figurine's head (the Nightmare and Kirin are large ponies)

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.
