StarFinder Miniatures


Third-Party Starfinder Products


Hello all,

I don't wanna start again the discussion about the Miniatures Kickstarter of Ninja Division I think everything has been said we will all wait to see what will happen. But the result is that we have a nice idea of game pushed out by Paizo named Starfinder and we can't find miniature right now to play with it. I'm really not a fan of the pawns and don't want to invest in other close but not official miniature that can fit.. I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking like that (especially if I check the backers number into the Ninja Division kickstarter). This kickstarter mess is creating a shadow over a great potential Starfinder game and definately don't help on his popularity.

So my question is, considering we have multiple person interested to invest in starfinder miniatures, do it's possible for Paizo to start his own line of starfinder miniatures or start a new partnership with an other miniature company to finally be able to offer something strong and official for the Starfinder players and masters ?

You'd have to get the license from Paizo. Maybe first incorporate a corporation or LLC (I would recommend incorporating out of Delaware), pitch said model line to Paizo, which would require you to already have a relationship with someone who would make the minis and create a distribution model, find a way to wholesale the model line to LGS owners, hire sculptors, hire artists and graphic designers, design packaging, mitigate losses and plan for contingencies.

Then you'd need to fund all of this...which would require you to maybe find investors because it's highly unlikely that a Kickstarter is something people have the stomach for.

Assuming you could do all of that, the answer is yes.

Putting more money into Starfinder miniatures is on the last-things-I'd-want-to-do list.

The only information actually give to customers by a Paizo Exec in the Kickstarter thread was that Ninja Division did not have an exclusive license. They could start a new line with a new complaint tomorrow. My concern is what the reaction will be as there is still a ton of questions outstanding to Paizo about that Kickstarter and the Executives of Paizo seem to think it is ok to leave customer service high and dry without information and to take actions that they were told would be disrespectful to their customers.
