Each card has an "Owner" listed on it. If you are playing the character that is the listed owner, you can treat the card like it has the Basic trait. That means if you are the owner, you can use the cards in your starting deck when you first make your character. (As explained here.)
If you want to use the card, but for non-owners (or the owner doesn't want to start with it) you can just add them to the cards of the same type in your base set. Each rulebook so far has said not to add promos to the box until you start the first adventure. So if you weren't the owner, I'd assume that you would just add the others in when you started adventure 1.

Thanks for the explanation, Hawkmoon. What about adding the cards to an alreaddy ongoing game?
Shouldn't be an issue, since those of us who subscribe are consistently adding new promos to the game every month when we get them in our subscription packages. I'd say as long as you're at least playing adventure 1, you'd be fine to add them.
And as Vic points out here, if you swap a card in your character deck for a promo card with the Basic trait (i.e. one your character is the owner of) it won't be destructive to the game. So if you happen to get the card your character owns in the middle of an adventure path and don't want to wait on the luck of the draw to reward you with your cool new card, I think you'd be fine to swap it. Unless it was organized play. In organized play I'd wait for some instructions from Tanis before just swapping them out.
Today was WizKids' release date. They are no longer pre-order on the Paizo site, so I would assume that, as long as you haven't put them in your sidecart, they should expect to ship on the next 1 to 7 business days. They are listed in the March subscription thread as non-subscription product that can ship with March subscriptions.
Don't miniature subscribers get a discount on these? Shows I was charged $29. They are only $20 on miniature market, plus you can get free shipping. Why such a big price difference on Paizo and no subscriber discount?
If you are a subscriber and you've had a subscription item ship (which has to happen before you get a discount on other products) then yes, you should be getting a discount. If you meet the criteria and didn't get charged the correct amount, post in the customer service thread and they will be happy to fix it for you.

Thanks will try that.
If these had come out as scheduled, they would have been able to ship with either my subscription PFACG S&S deck 5 in January or deck 6 in February. Now deck 6 has shipped.
Does that mean that since the Iconic set #1 came out 2/26 that I have to wait all the way until May for these minis (which I preordered) to ship out with the WotR PFACG base set? That seems punitive.
You can set your order of Iconic Heroes Set 1 to ship as soon as possible, that way you won't have to wait for you May subscription. Given how my subscription, which is only the card game, usually comes when I have just an adventure deck, I'm not sure you'd save that much on shipping cost by shipping them together anyway, since there is no way the minis are fitting inside the box I usually get my cards in.
Keep in mind, this is a Paizo licensed product, they don't set the street day, WizKids does. And also keep in mind that the reason it didn't come out when scheduled is due to a labor strike in all the ports up and down the West Coast. I'm sure Paizo and WizKids both really wish they could have gotten through the ports sooner, but the labor strike made that unpredictable.
EDIT: I checked shipping for me, your of course might be much different. Shipping Iconic Heroes Set 1 to me (I'm in Delaware) by itself, was $4.65. Shipping just an adventure deck to me, by itself, was $4.35. Shipping for them combined in one order was $9.00. That was choosing the cheapest option each time. So combining the two into one order does not save you on shipping. Your rates, shipping preferences, location, and mileage may vary.
I just got my set from my FLGS. I never got any of the other Pathfinder Battles minis or any pre-painted RPG minis for that matter, but these really do look great! I'm glad that the card game promos gave me just enough of a push to start buying these now. I'll probably get all of the sets as the come out, budget willing, and hopefully also get some other Battles minis as well.

Without mentioning specific numbers, are orders proceeding as well as/better than expected? I am hoping for the announcement of additional sets and it was pretty clear from the outset that the number and variety of future iconic sets are strongly contingent on the early sets doing well...
The first six sets, which will cover all pre-Occult iconics, are already committed to. Though I'm also curious if they are doing well.
Also peg me as curious to the sales so far. My set came from Amazon, having almost thirty in stock when I ordered about two weeks ago. Their stock is down to five right now. I imagine most people ordered through Paizo or other hobby etailer. My hope is set 2 comes out by the 28th so I can add it to an order of other miniatures from Paizo. I am definitely in for the full six sets slated so far. I wanted better tokens for the PACG and the owner boons are a huge bonus that tipped me over. If the line does well I would like to see it morph into also having Iconic NPCs and Villians mixed in with the Heroes. Something like every three months would put me in for a subscription, if made available. The current pace is good for getting the main Heroic Iconics released.

That would break it off from being a crossover product with the card game. I'm not saying it wouldn't sell, I don't have any idea what will sell, just that at least a good portion of people are buying because it adds to the card game. I know that is why I'm buying. These are the only minis I own or plan to own. If they did the card game characters from the class decks, I'd buy those too. I'd buy the Occult iconics on the assumption they'd eventually appear in the card game. But if it starts to be something I can't use in the card game, I wouldn't buy.
Again, not saying your idea wouldn't be a good one or wouldn't sell, just that the sales of the current line wouldn't be a good predictor of how well something like that would sell.
I bought the first set, and will likely buy the second, simply because they're really handy to have for folks playing PFS pregens. Beyond the core iconic characters, though, $5 a mini is just too high (for me).
Edit: I also don't play the card game. I appreciate that these sets may offer additional value to those who do.
Understood. I suppose with the Class Deck characters and the Occult Iconics we could easily fill out another six sets already. 23 Class deck characters so far (including Paladin), 6 Occult heroes, plus presumably another load from future class decks. That would be more than plenty and I assume more character options would present themselves down the line. With this focused on PC type characters only I could see it maintaining for a couple years at least. I was thinking mixed sets with other types of characters could come with promo banes/scenarios that had strange options.

So got my box today and was very pleased with the paint jobs, especially in relation to the other packs I have. The one big problem I had was that Seoni did not have an arm and valeros and sajan where loose in the box.
If someone could tell me how to get a replacement of Seoni?
I'm sorry to hear that! Please email customer service a picture that we can pass along to quality control. We are still determining what the replacement procedures for these may be, but will follow up with you as soon as we know more.
