I'm not sure if the game is considered dead these days, but Monsterpocalypse boosters are currently available at 73% off at wayland games. Since that equates to £2.70 GBP for a booster, and free shipping if you spend over £50.00 GBP, it might be worth looking at.

It'll go lower. I've cleaned out several US store inventories at $1 USD a box. Not just dead, but rotting – which makes it a good opportunity to pick up some figs for kaiju gaming in Monster Island or Giant Monster Rampage.

It would be nice to round out my sets of the first monsters/units.

Not just dead, but rotting

Which is a shame, since MonPoc is a good game from a good company.

I won't argue, but Privateer's pretty clearly abandoned the game. The lack of long-term organized play support is what killed it more than anything, and not giving it any real coverage in No Quarter didn't help either. Why Privateer wasn't willing to provide that kind of support is a mystery – were sales too low to justify the effort? Did they just not have the resources to back MonPoc and their Iron Kingdoms stuff? Was always intended to be a quick-in-quick-out cash cow for them?

Still, it was fun while it lasted and getting the figs for pennies on the dollar is a nice parting gift.

I think the core issue is that MonPoc was a collectible miniatures game that hit the market right as the collectible miniatures genre was dying out. I suspect it didn't do nearly as well as projected, and Privateer wasn't able to change the distribution model in time to save the game. I have some hope that they'll revisit it, but I'm also not holding my breath.

Perhaps the new movie Pacific Rim might give them pause to consider a relaunch effort?
