Drizzt came with several cards of monsters, I thought it was Hasbro giving us a hint of what was to come.

Part of me sees that LEGO news and is like "man I've been building my own maps and minis for my home games my whole life, I don't need LEGO D&D"
But the other part of me is like "my favorite LEGO were always the medieval stuff, just be quiet and enjoy a LEGO owlebear if they make one you fool"

As for this line, I now need to try to remember where I stashed the monster cards that came with Drizzt, because if that was a hint of what they have planned, that'd be cool. Give us a displacer beast and owlbear and articulated mimic... (I've got so many undead from Mythic Legions I'm not super anxious to get those, but I know it'd be nice to see a cheaper, less difficult to obtain collection of fantasy monsters available).

I really do not buy legos at all, but if we get a Drizzt minifig, I will go in. I love to grab all the Drizzt merch I can get.

I still have my Drizzt and Wulfgar Kre-Os from however long ago, so I'd at least take a look at the Lego stuff.

Minimates is doing a cartoon line too, they showed off all the kids at NYCC, as well as Venger, his Horse, Shadow Demon, Warduke and Dekkion (the one eyed skeleton warrior). This is a great selection of characters, and I really hope we might see characters like the three above in the Hasbro toy line.

On the Target website they have a video from the team behind the figures. My friend just told me about this.
It’s a slide from the product pictures.

Just finished watching the series on youtube, I have a list of figures I would like to see.

Warduke
Kelek
Strongheart
Dekkion
Shadow Demon
Karena
Generic Bullywog (I would army build these.)
The Nightwalker would be cool, but he is a large character.
Cloud Bears (the ewok guys from The Traitor episode)
The Darkling
Tiamat (maybe haslab? or just like a playset in stores, like the good old days?)

I'm just so in love with this show. Do I honestly think they will make every single side / one off character, including the Ewok rip offs? They obviously will do them all. /s But really, i'd love some of these. If nothing else though, please give us a third wave or some exclusives, with at least Warduke.

If wave 2 takes care of the rest of the kids, the only thing ends I would want from this line is a nightmare, a Venger that can ride it, and a Shadow Demon.

However, I could *easily* be talked into backing a Tiamat HasLab.

I think the smart way to do a Haslab Tiamat is to make it a realistic dragon to appeal broadly to all D&D/fantasy fans and then have a stretch tier for interchangeable cartoon style heads.

I'm not entirely certain about doing Nightmare. They're making Venger 8 inches tall. On horseback, he'd easily be 14 inches talk and his horse would be bigger than he is. You're probably looking at a $100 figure set if Venger and Game Master are $50.

I'd like to see Shadow Demon. And Kareena. And Warduke.

But my hunch is that with the Golden Archive line launching around March that the cartoon is two waves and done. At best, we'll get the other three kids and one deluxe figure.

That said, The Golden Archive is supposedly going to draw from the new movie and the games. That opens up the prospect of a game art Warduke.I figure that monsters and Companions of the Hall would factor large into non-movie figures.

Also: I wonder if Hasbro's reluctance to do Marvel Legends Mephisto at retail means that they wouldn't do Shadow DEMON.

I am sure Hasbro knows Warduke will sell, so it would be cool to get him cartoon nd realistic from Hasbro. Even one that looks like the old toy. Maybe the next cartoon line can be the three kids, and Warduke / Strongheart 2 pack exclusive? I'd buy 2 or 3 of those.

Man, I keep going back to these figures and being tempted. I loved the cartoon so much. The one, single thing keeping me from buying in to this line is Venger's teeny tiny pin-head. I can't abide it or support it. I know being packaged with Dungeon Master who's head is oversized isn't helping - but I feel like this is SO close but misses. No Venger means I'm less enthusiastic about having the squad... I may still crumble and cave and buy them when I see them at retail. But I sure wish Venger looked a little better.
