Doom miniatures are back.

Guess I'd better auction off the ones I bought on ebay before people notice...

Ditto, there goes my pension fund! :D

Nice to know they're to be re-released, but a pain in the ass if you've been paying top dollar for them.

I wish they'd make jewelery rings with game symbols even if they were made of normal steel because I so badly want a ring with the Quake symbol.

Holy fuck, a bunch of merchandise that I actually want. Especially those figurines. They're going to be purchasable online right? Cool.

Wait, are those the same designs as the original Reaper minis? That's kind of a slap in the face to collectors.

Maybe collectors need to reevaluate their lives if this is upsetting to them.

Finally, a chance to get back the Manc I foolishly gave away years ago.

I assume these are like those minifigs with massive heads and tiny bodies you got when you pre-order games but Doom?

The photo suggests they're the same pewter miniatures that Reaper produced in the 90s. Don't suppose they'll accidentally re-release one of the cyber prototypes.

No.

Couldn't the older ones made still account for being older and still be worth something because of it?

Of course. If they change markings in the bottom of the figure to inform what year these were made to part them from older ones. I think these new are going to be sold in some kind of plastic container as whole sets in comparison to older miniatures sold separately in blister cardboard packages. Only time will tell.

That is to be my engagement ring if I can find someone who likes games as much as I do. Actually fuck it, even if they don't like games it's Quake ring or nothing,

A new date or some other change to the copyright info on the base would help. Then again, if the re-release miniatures are only produced in small quantities, they might become the more collectable ones. ;-)

Here's to hoping that they're going to hold true and put the stuff on the online store.

Sarcasm: Ah yes, perfect for my future/space exploration/cyber punk table top RPG campaign.

Seriously though, besides that old Doom 2 board game do people do this? Is there any published Doom RPG modules/campaigns? I know there is one for Diablo, and as expected, the crossover works great, but for Doom?? I've never heard of one.

WHat is that Icon of Sin thing? Looks kinda like a mousepad.

it says that there will be a limited Doom print made, but it just says that "a", not "two" or "a few" or anything like that. my guess is that it's a poster, the Icon of Sin one.

There's a baron of hell figure going for about $100 on eBay. FYI.

Just picked up a set myself. Might pay to be quick if you're interested...

Just ordered a set, postage to Australia wasn't as high as I'd feared.

It was considerate of them to alter the stamp on the base.

Yep, ordered mine - sweet.

It would be cool if we could get a rough guestimation as to how long they'll be out.

Being a limited edition - it'll be for however long (or briefly) it takes for them to sell out.

Glad I got my ones. It appears they are now sold out. Do you think that's it or that they will make another lot?
