"Over the course of several sets, it's our intention to provide all sorts of "menial" NPCs, from barkeepers to bouncers to barmaids, from watch captains to politicians. When I first saw the art for Ambrose Kroop come through during the course of publishing the Skull & Shackles Adventure Path campaign, I just knew I had to include him in a set. Ambrose Kroop is an uncommon figure."
This part makes me really happy. I love townfolk npc's so much so I snagged all the reaper ones.
It's wonderful to be able to have a city scene without having to pack the streets with minis in action stances with weapons.
Though I guess he could use the chicken in a fight!
These sales are great, it's really helped me fill in the gaps in my collection
Just need these 5 and I'm all caught up with the hardcovers, adventure paths, player companions, pathfinder chronicles and the pathfinder campaign setting stuff! :)

That is a pretty big challenge. There have been some big wins as well. I love the Treachery demons scale, it feels like a big threat when you drop it, but fits nicely on it's base.
Others you've noted yourself were a bit small (H&M Troll) or really big (H&M Dire rats).
The Dire rats make great Donkey rats though! :D
Some things are just going to be different in scale between companies.
I felt the stone giants in runelords were a tiny bit small, though I do like the idea of having one of the races of giants a bit more slender. Variety is good! :)

I think part of that is a stylizing thing.
Icons dragons are more stocky too, and the models pathfinder favors are slender, more lithe dragons.
^ I see what you did there ^_^

Has the format for future releases been nailed down yet? As in, can we expect most releases to be a set of 55 with boosters of 1 large + 3 others? Or are they still likely to switch around on a set by set basis?
I get the impression this is the distribution that's working best for them. I personally love it, just hoping we can get the two plastic "shells" in the boxes to have openings facing out rather than towards each other, that should help a ton.

Any chance we can get more details on the release date beyond "expected approximately May 2013"? I'm scheduled to Run We Be Goblins at CanGames, May 17-19, and I would love it if I could run with the goblin PC miniatures. If everything goes according to plans, are we talking maybe early May?
Mogmurch and Reta are playable characters in We Be Goblins Too!, this year's Paizo offering for Free RPG Day! That promotion takes place at game stores all around the world on June 15th. The We Be Goblins Builder Series set is scheduled for a May 29 release.

Hah, called it!
Glad to hear you're enjoying them :)
I had very little trouble with the early sets. No breaks in heroes and monsters, likely due to solo packaging.
2 Breaks in runelords, a warchanter and I forgot the other one, but both only took a tiny dab of superglue so I was not so worried about it.
This set I had 3 breaks, a spiderxyz or whatever that one is named, a Xulgath that had a foot pop off and the blue dragons right foot.
The Spider only had a broken mandible so I didn't bother fixing it because you wouldn't notice it unless you were looking for it.
I thought there was generally one rare per booster usually. What was in those boosters?
edit: nevermind, I'm bad at math.
Well if you got a case, you're likely fine, I've yet to read a report of a sealed base not having a full set. :)
