Smaug is coming...

But will he really be $490? He's rumored to be 2-3 feet long...

Unplayable. I am excited but very disappointed by this. How are you even supposed to move him to a game and then
Move him around the game? I blame peter Jackson. He was made too big and his price is just way to fucking much for me to justify it. At a few hundred dollars maybe, but the rumored $500 is insane!

I think they're charging so much because his base has real 25mm scale gold coins. :) You know the price of gold has been going through the roof! Diggity Damn!

The model might be fucking amazing - but it will only be for serious collectors. Mostly because GW will create a price point that the regular person just can't deal with.

Can't wait to see some detail shots on the GW website though!

Not to mention that with this you need to put some serious thought into where you will store it. This doesn't just pop into foam or sit on a shelf.

I almost didn't recognize it as a dragon without a silly fantasy elf perched on its neck.

2-3 feet long? $500? Well, I guess every line has to have its Thunderhawk kit.

Word on the street says that Smaug solid out in their prerelease stage in under a day even at $490. Mind you I haven't heard what quantities he was made in and if he was a limited run or not.

They made 200.

200 x 490 = 98,000.

At some point I would expect another set of him to go out.

Yeah that's not bad. Man 200. I was hoping this would be around for a while. I can't drop that cash a few weeks before Christmas. Hopefully they will make more. You never know with GW. We haven't seen any more void shield generators out there...
