The 'learn about d&d' flash demo & the upcoming Basic Set

I was wandering around www.wizards.com/dnd and decided to check out the "Learn About D&D" section since I hadn't looked at it in a while, in case they had updated it. They've totally redesigned it, though this may be old news by now. It couldn't have been too long ago since it makes references to The Warforged in at least one place. Anyway, I clicked on the "Explore The D&D Game" link it had and went to the "Where To Next?" section and it has a picture of the upcoming D&D basic set and 3 of the minis. A Black Dragon, a skeleton and a lizardfolk.

So I looked at the product page for the Basic set here and it says it will come with 16 non-random minis. Wow! Does anyone know if any of these will be unique, or are they pulled from the existing minis?

I myself do not own any of the new plastic pre-painted minis but this would be a nice way to get started. I'm always having to introduce new players so having a Basic Set lying around is often helpful.

You're welcome! :D

In fact, my interest in the Basic set is more due to a love that in more important than what I've done with the D&D Miniatures: My love of introducing new people to the game.

I'm just setting up a page on my site which will gather together information about the Basic Set - I've been meaning to do so for months!

Cheers!

I wish I could love the minis. They are just to expensive and to hard to get a hold of. I am sticking with pewter ones, even though my painting skills suck.
