Is there anyone else who thought the Shadowrun figures were cool, but were badly hampered by being a tiny line?  If they had been half the size, twice as many of them and 2/3s the price I think they would have done better.

And yet, that would be doubling the mold, production and stocking costs while reducing the value by 2/3rds :) I bet you dollars to donuts if there had been a stronger ability for RAFM or Ral Partha to sell Shadowrun minis, that line would have grown.

I was thinking about the ones that were six inches tall that, as I recall, WizKids did.  The figs were neat, and well done.  There was nothing I really wanted in what they did release, which was rather frustrating since there is plenty of stuff in the Shadowrun setting I do like.  It is quite similar to what is happening with the WoW figures.

It may be something that needs to be done online, but I know there are people like me who would pay @$50 for a semi-custom action figure, and if they're really good, higher is not out of the question.  (I don't know the costs of doing a positionable figure vs several different static poses, any ideas?)

Haha! My bad then. I thought you were talking about the range Ral Partha did back in the day of Shadowrun metal figures... NM!

I do recall those for being among the best/closest to real size of the weapons.  (Games Workshop being the key offender for those who think an axehead shouldn't be 2/3 the size of a man's torso.)

Did the link go away?  It appears to be broken now.

I think it was a limited offer, and it's been a while...
