Larger-Than-Life Limited Edition Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures Loom For 2006!
September 27, 2005 (Renton, Wash.) - Bigger is bolder! Wizards of the Coast, Inc., a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS), has announced it will launch a new product line of massive DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Miniatures in 2006. Called DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ICONS, these non-randomized D&D Miniatures will be available in two size categories:
"Gargantuan" and the even bigger "Colossal," both of which will tower over figures from last year’s highly popular GIANTS OF LEGEND expansion. D&D ICONS will depict dragons and other legendary creatures drawn from D&D lore, and will be fully compatible with the ever-expanding universe of D&D Miniatures. These limited edition monsters are proportionally sized per D&D roleplaying rules to be either Gargantuan (4" x 4" base) or Colossal (6"x6" base). Wizards of the Coast plans to issue two D&D ICONS every year, which will be available for a limited time only following release.
Here Be Dragons!
D&D ICONS debuts next June with the menacing Black Dragon, a Gargantuan figure ideal for both the game player and collector. In August, Wizards will release the first Colossal product -- a strikingly painted Red Dragon. Each figure is sold with a full-color map, a playable game scenario and double-sided stat cards, as well an accompanying standard-sized miniature to help start the battle. Like all the figures in the D&D ICONS line, the Black and Red Dragons are playable in both the D&D Miniatures skirmish game and any roleplaying campaign, and will be indispensable for collectors of D&D products.
