Games Workshop is taking orders for more new models from their Hobbit line.

NZ$40 (US$33.10) for one figure folks. That’s value for your gaming dollar!
Is this what has become of the “firsters”?
Yes, Aussie and NZ prices suck. They’re not $33 in the US, however.
No.. they’re $20.. which is still ridiculous. Compare that Gandalf to the $12.25 ones and you’ll quickly see that not only is this one more.. but he’s also an inferior sculpt..
If I were to drop $20 on a single regular man-sized model, it damn-well better look identical to the character it is meant to represent.
That’s a good example of what I’m talking about.. but even GW has way better sculpts of Gandalf (just do a search on their online store) and they are cheaper.
25 CAD$ (23.4 US $) …
Most PP Warmachine or Hordes casters are at 14-18$ MSRP (and you can buy them online for another 20-30% off) – and that’s still a bit expensive (though we have an expensive hobby anyway…)…
Wake up GW!
