Listen, this is a FANTASY RPG accessory, right? Stop injecting reality into it. WizKids is not in the .stl business. Still, there are numerous Patreons that will have 'Feywild' themes in the next 6 months with their own spins on the Witchlight Carnival.
The smart third party vendors are spinning up STL files, PDFs, etc., right now. There's going to be a crazy amount of fey-themed choices this fall.
 


One case of 4 bricks should get you almost a complete set, with duplicates of many for ~$380. You can spend another $100 to get the last singles you need. You'll miss out on those 2 unique minis, but I can have them made on Hero Forge and professionally painted for less than the differential.
I don't think you've been guaranteed a complete set from a case for a few years now. That used to be the case, but even as far back as the Descent Into Avernus series you couldn't get everything from a case (this is from personal experience). The introduction of the A/B versions of minis really screwed things up.

This is more than a 2000 point warhammer army.
Yes, but you do have to assemble and paint the Warhammer army yourself.

I’m not saying it’s a good deal - I won’t buy it. But, individually, the minis cost about $9 each; I’ve spend more than that on a single X-Wing or Wizkids Star Trek game figure, not to mention Wizkid’s Attack Wing models…

I’ve been meaning to ask this: how do those brick things work? How many do I have to buy to get more or less all the minis on offer?

I think what will hold me back from buying this, in addition to the price, is the specificity of the pieces. I just don’t think I’d get much use out of many of them outside of playing through the official campaign.
 

The fugues are packed into randomised booster boxes which are then packaged together in packs of 8 wrapped in cellophane known as a brick. 4 bricks are sent to shops in a box known as a case. The way randomisation works means that you stand a good chance of getting a pretty much full set by buying a case. If you are buying several bricks, you want to ensure they come from the same case to limit duplication

One brick (8 boosters) should get you all the common figures, almost all uncommon figures, as well as 8 different rares or very rares. If you get a sealed case of 4 bricks, it should have all the figuress, except possibly for a few variants. Myself, I usually get a single brick or perhaps two if the set is very good, and then hunt and peck for the other singles I want on ebay. A lot of very rare figures are just meh unique named NPCs of some kind or transparent versions of characters, which aren't worth pursuing to me.

Side note: The Baldur's Gate Avernus set was Fantastic for demons and devils.

This site has a good breakdown.

Awesome. Thanks. Exactly what I’ve been trying to figure out.

That was in the before times. It's turning into pick one. :(
You’re absolutely right! The army builder sets for Frameworks, even with the single minis being $14, the average price of a miniature is more than Games Workshop prices and they are constantly grilled for the price of their miniatures. Especially considering you can easily modified Bones and even metal reapers for a fraction of that cost after buying weapons packs and/or using bits culled from other mini kits you may have. Where Deep Cuts is a deal, frameworks is expensive as all get out. And they haven’t announced any new Deep Cuts minis aside from the Critical Role minis in a while…

The sculpts for the framework miniatures are beautiful. I can see the beholder being out of stock very quickly, but the orcs are nothing special. I imagine there will be many packs that will occupy shelves in FLGS for years at this price point. They will look lovely next to the Warlock terrain boxes gathering dust.

Surprised this is coming from Wizkids. Normally it's Shaggy's game to offer low ROI D&D swag.
Not sure "ROI" even applies to luxuries like this, but if it does, the Eberron box I got this year has given my group easily 40+ hours of entertainment thus far, and I haven't even touched the stuff that is there for starting a new campaign, yet. If I value entertainment at around $5/hour, it is already about 10 hours away from ROI, for me.

$5/hour is about right for a movie at the theatre, averaging between cheap tuesday matinees and pricier nights. Also about right for what I spend when we go out to the bars.

Still kinda chuckling at "low ROI" luxury hobby accesories.

40 hours you couldn't get out of the normal book?

EDIT: I should also add that I think low ROI is absolutely reasonable. Half the stuff in the B&G Eberron box is just stuff broken out from the main book anyway. With some shards that serve no game function etc. Something like this can certainly be good, but it would have to be useful, and yeah, offer good value.

The Mask of Nyarlathotep prop set is $139 and contains 109 actual clues the players can actually use in a gameable sense, plus some other niceties. I'd take 2 of these over 1 Gold Eberron box (which, given the price difference, is almost doable.)
