I wish they would do a pre-painted Demon Idol diorama from the 1st edition PHB.

It comes unpainted but this diorama set is really nice. Unfortunately I bought mine years ago before they had the full "accessory" option.

And obviously not miniature-scale, but the dice tower from GameStop is cool too. They have the "classic" orange and a faux bronze option.

I would buy a lot more of these miniatures if they weren’t in blind boxes. And that set of the alphabetical monsters is cool and all, but what am I going to do with 1 kobold? Pathfinder makes these pawn sets that match up with their modules. I buy them just so I have something to use for DnD. WoTC is just leaving money on the table at this point.
Great points. I have the first two sets of the alphabetical "OG" designs and plan to complete the set but more for the historical style. I'd love to use them for an old-school themed game but to your point, it's pretty hard to get a group of the same monster.

Otherworld Miniatures has some amazing old school designs but sadly their price point is often "otherwordly" as well.

I believe there's been some experiments with non-blind boxes, but the price just doesn't work out nicely. Basically pre-painted mini prices are subsidised by collectors, who buy tons of them hoping to get rare figures to sell on the miniature market to other collectors. They try and increase utility for people actually gaming with them by making all the most used and low-level monsters "common".

Hmmm I find Otherworld prices in line with other metal miniatures.

WizKids currently offers several miniature lines for D&D, Pathfinder, and Critical Role . . . variously sized boxed sets (usually pre-painted and non-blind), blind-box pre-painted minis, pre-painted single minis (non-blind), unpainted single minis, minis on sprues, flat acrylic minis . . . about the only formats they don't offer are flat tokens and pawns. Specific sculpts usually only exist in one format (pre-painted, unpainted, or on-sprue).

Minis are both a gaming table accessory and a collectible, and WizKids tries to corner both sides of the market.
