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...

      I just saw an announcement for an upcoming The Princess Bride boardgame, coming in October.  I'm so hoping the figures are in a usable 28mm-32mm gaming scale, as it would be so fun to use them outside of the game.   Apparently it will be priced at $25!
