Is available for pre-order. I'm adding it to my Baldur's Gate for PC memorabilia collection.

Very cool. I would easily pay double or more if it would only come painted... I have absolutely no skill in that department.

The party come to a town befallen by hysteria

Rogue: So what's in the general store?
DM: What are you looking for?
Rogue: Whatevers in the store.
DM: Like what?
Rogue: Everything.
DM: There is a lot of stuff.
Rogue: Is there a cart outside?
DM: (rolls) Yes.
Rogue: We'll take it all, we may need it for the greater good.

I completely understand. It's not the same mini, not the same quality, but the Wizkids makes this one, if you're interested.

I have the pre-painted one from Wizkids. It's a "rare" random from the Tom of Annihilation set. Man I really hate the idea of randomized mini box sets. The paint job is reasonable, not great, but good enough that you can just make out Boo on his shoulder.


Although I will buy at least one "Brick of 8", which mostly guarantees at least several (around 3-5) coveted rares. And after I have the minis from the Brick, if I am still coveting 1 or 2 rares that I really must have, then I just look for the rare single on eBay, hoping to grab the lowest price should it arise.

Some of the rares that I got out of the box from the random blister packs (from my single Brick of 8 blister boxes):

Ras Nsi
Ultroloth
Valindra Shadowmantle
Dragonbait
Artus Cimber

Two rares that I purchased singly from eBay:
Minsc & Boo figure
Acererak

Yeah, I've never liked the random boosters, either. Minsc I bought because, well, Minsc. I'm a sucker for all things related to the Beloved Ranger.

The amount of money I sunk into CCGs, back in the day, has burned me on the idea of buying anything blind. Now all I'll buy blind are the collectible Lego minifigures, and even then, I only get a handful without trying to determine by feel what is in the package.

Aye. Considering the somewhat ridiculous prices WizKids charges for a booster pack, I just buy what I want online. Ten bucks for the exact rare I want versus 15 bucks for a booster that might not even have anything I want is a much better deal. I somehow extended that logic to buy the beholder mini that looks like the Xanathar from the cover of Waterdeep and the North. Still worth it, imo.

I also agree. Random packs at that price, I'd rather just buy what I want after market. The pre-painted D&D minis are very hit and miss in quality. I had bought a bunch during 3E that were very good quality including all the large Dragons, except for the Green one they never made .

Must say this Minsc one seems very muddy I'm going to pass. I don't mind paying an arm and a leg like I did for the dragons to get something super high quality.
