Archfiends, Giants of Legend, Set 5 (Fell Menace) Minis Pics

Hello,

Discussion on this started over at the WotC Boards, but I thought that it would be good to bring it up here.

The WotC discussion is here:

http://boards1.wizards.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=182716

Actual photos of upcoming product can be found at:

http://www.figures.com/

Click on the "Toy Fair 2004" link at the top of the page and then look under "Hasbro" and "Games". Pages 4 & 5 contain the minis shots.

Basically, Hasbro has been showing off product at the major US Toy Fair (New York?).

The posted pcitures give us a whole bunch of things to speculate about and reveal the name of Set 5 "Fell Menace"

In addition, packaging for Archfiends, Giants of Legend, and Fell Menace are displayed. It looks like Fell Menace has an aqautic theme.

Cheers :)

Very nice! Looks like the Gith's (zerai and yanki) will be part of one of the upcoming sets, as well as another Minotaur and some other interesting critter types. (Hill giant? I'm guessing that's the big one featured).

Whoah... This is the biggest scoop I've seen in a long time. Look at all of 'em!
I see a unicorn in there for sure. What look like medium fire and earth elementals. A hill and stone giant (no big surprise there). Some sort of zombie dog (great... another freaking dog). Another minotaur?

The Fell Menace set looks interesting:
Sahuagin (sp?)
Yuan-ti
Green Dragon
 

I see a blurred Iconic Psion. :)

Damn those look nice. So Fell Menace is the name of the next set...and will also have the Entry Pack. The Basic Set looks REALLY nice too.

This is not good. You should not have posted this here. I was finally kicking the addiction, but noooo I just got sucked right back in. Can I just directly deposit my income into WoTC bank accaunt? :eek:

I must say the figures do keep getting better with each new set

Hello,

I am still analyzing the pictures for my speculation on what is what. I have to chime in that I don't believe the figure that everyone is calling a Stone Giant is really a giant. Yes, it is a large, but from my point of view it is the wrong style, pose, etc. for a Stone Giant. I think the picture that everyone is bsing the guess on is this one:

http://69.93.35.18/photo/1/showphoto.php?photo=11773&password=&sort=1&cat=1175&page=4

If the large grey guy in the bottom left of the picture is a Stone Giant, then I really don't like the pose.

What is the mini then? Well, at this point I am not sure. Various possibilities have been mentioned including stone golem, clay golem, and walking wall (living wall?). Any other speculation?

Cheers :)

I'd guess that it's a clay golem. If it's a stone giant, I really don't like it.

Nice scoop.
Boy some of those look nice.
So where do I sell plasma to get more of these :D

Arrrgh. I still need 8 Harbingers and a dozen Dragoneye first.

Any idea when the 5th set and or new Starter set will be available?

5th set will probably be late 2004...maybe...possibly...you get the picture. :)

Better get the Harbingers fast. WotC has stopped producing them.
The stock available in stores is going to run out pretty quickly,
and the stock available online will dry up after that.

Hello,

In regards to the question of when Set 5 (Fell Menace) will release. I think it is quite likely we will see the Starters and Boosters released in late October or early November, just in time for the Christmas rush.

The designers have stated numerous times over on the WotC Boards that the distribution schedule was off for the first year, but will stabilize at 3 sets per year, approximately every 4 months, after the first year.

Thus, February/March, June/July, and October/November would seem to be the periods we will likely see releases. The February/ March release falls after the January retail black hole (post-Christmas bill paying), the June/July hits the summer convention season, and the October/November is the run-up to Christmas, the biggest toy purchasing period of the year.

Cheers :)
