Pathfinder Battles—Shattered Star: Gargantuan Blue DragonWizKids/NECA
Our Price: $36.00Add to Cart
Excellent figure, poor materialsNamelessInfinity —
The first Blue Dragon I received as part of the Battles Subscription had nearly all of its horns broken off. I sent that one back to WizKids (had to call paizo support about it...). Got the replacement Blue Dragon direct from WizKids for the broken one I sent back. The replacement Blue Dragon only had one small horn broken off. It will be easier to super-glue or expoxy the dragon back on to its base, though, as it was only glued on to one peg and the one connected peg broke when I removed the dragon from the plastic. For the $16.50 this dragon cost me ($10 as Battles subscription and $6.50 shipping the first broken one to WizKids), it's almost not worth it. If you actually pay the $39.99 for it, shame on you.
Other than that, the figure is a very, very nice Blue Dragon.
Excellent figureNamelessInfinity —
Given the boggard is not a rare figure, the paint detail for this figure is excellent. I may have to work boggards into an adventure, just to use this one.
Ho-hum, another Iron Golem...NamelessInfinity —
A nice figure overall, but once again, a male iron golem in a "I'm going to smash you" pose. I think a female iron golem would have been more interesting. And different.
Different Fire GiantNamelessInfinity —
While I agree with Malith on the sword, which is why this gets a 4 instead of a 5, the translucent red-orange lends itself to a really different type of fire giant, as opposed to the pure black skin / red flaming hair of the days of old. I haven't measured the scale of the figure, but I think it's a bit small for a fire giant (compared to the Troll Champion...). Glad I got a couple of these in my case.
One of the Best Elementals EverNamelessInfinity —
The sculpt on this Large Water Elemental is just awesome, one of the best figures I've seen. The image does not do the figure justice.
I concur with the other reviewers. I've not opened all of my case yet, but I've had one broken figure, and, more importantly, the Blue Dragon arrived with all of its horns broken off. In the 10 years or so of ordering plastic minis online, or in stores, I've never had any arrive broken until now. Also, when I contacted paizo support about the dragon, including an image of it, I heard nothing from them for two full business days. Actually had to call them, and the support person's response was, if it came broken, you have to send it back to WizKids. So I've done that, with no guarantee I'll get the blue dragon back. Not the kind of service/quality I've come to expect from paizo.
Update 130209: Add Boggard Bits to the list of broken figures. A rogue Hill Giant in a box smashed both hand on the Boggard in the box. Nearly every large figure that was not twist-tied down was loose in this case.
Update 130311: Got the replacement Blue Dragon direct from WizKids for the broken one I sent back. The replacement Blue Dragon only had one small horn broken off. It will be easier to super-glue or expoxy the dragon back on to its base, though, as it was only glued on to one peg and the one connected peg broke when I removed the dragon from the plastic.
One of the best bird demonsNamelessInfinity —
I've got three of these, and all are well painted and formed. The figure is very stable, as opposed to other "bird" demons from other vendors.
Excellent elementalNamelessInfinity —
A finely done Earth Elemental, with one flaw -- the green crystals embedded in the figure (and the medium Earth Elemental as well) are just painted on. On my figure the paint was already chipping off, out of the box. Using green plastic would have made this a truly outstanding figure.
Pathfinder Battles—Shattered Star: Ravenous Ooze (Gray Ooze)WizKids/NECA
Our Price: $3.00
Someone actually sculpted this?NamelessInfinity —
I'd give this Zero stars if I could. Boring, plain, and not well done. Most people could make a better ooze out of green stuff.
A Hellish Hell HoundNamelessInfinity —
The is probably the best Hell Hound figure I've seen over the years. The figure is translucent, well painted, with flames coming off of the body. A pack of these would be awesome.
Great but not fantasticNamelessInfinity —
Another great fire elemental to add to the collection, but the brown "dirt" on it's shoulders just detracts from the overall figure. Blue fire I could see, but dirt? Nope.
