Yay another kickstarter has actually arrived. I was totally swayed when this went up with the idea of getting the characters from the classic D&D cartoon in chibi form so had to pledge.
My friend Andrew wanted the ponies... kinda wish I'd gotten one for myself now
well that's all of them. I also got the set of dice with the cartoon artwork on them of the characters and some resin bases which were included with the big models.
So what are they like... hmm the quality varies greatly across the range. It's obvious the D&D characters were the 1st sculpted and the initial sculpter didn't have any anime figures to use as reference because the faces just aren't right. The thief is the worse with her eyes stuck on her face instead of set in. It's going to take some surgery with the dremel to fix her somehow. The acrobat also looks weird but I'll leave her be I think. The later models in the range were 3D sculpted and the improvement in sharpness is very noticeable. The red Sonja looking lady with the head seperate from her tiny body shows that improvement off well. The ponies and big monsters are all also 3D sculpted.
I'm pretty sure initially the range was going to be metal but it changed over to resin probably about the same time they decided to make the big monsters really big. The castings are sharp but have a lot of bubble issues. It looks like they were all vac cast but bubbles obviously got trapped on the edges. Also some of the models must have been ripping the molds a bit going by my castings.
Considering most of the bubbles are on the underside of the model you won't see most of them but I'll have a go at filling them anyway, I've seen far worse from GW.
I'll take some comparison photos later comparing these to Super Dungeon Explore characters as I clean them up.
