I designed some larger figures for the Trailer Park Boys board game. They were sculpted in China and scale to 50mm which makes them reasonably compatible with 54mm scale figs. They come pre-painted and are quite McHappy Meal toy-like but I have to say I'm quite pleased with the result

High Roller Games is considering releasing the figs a separate collectables. Your opinions would be welcome here so I could pass them onto the boys at High Roller.

Rum and Coke is a little fancy for that crowd.

Julian's "schtick" was a glass of Rum and Coke! :)

I want them as bystanders. They will get a lot of "Hey wait isn't that" remarks around here :)

Now we need them in 28mm!!!!

'Now we need them in 28mm!!!!'

I suspect that the figs are in a digital file so 28/32mm versions might be possible. High Roller might consider it if the sales of the 50mm figures are healthy.

Definitely Seconded! Those would be AWESOME for "Trailer Park Zombie" games!!

Now you need to sculpt a Samsquanch. I hope the game includes as many Rickyisms as possible.

I have a hard time believing that 50mm figures will sell many copies at all due to the weird scale – - BUT THEY LOOK GREAT, Bob.

They are not being sold as 50mm figures. They are contents of a board game.

I'm not sure what use they would have in games. I bought a bunch of 50ish mm zombies from Walmart that I might be able to do something with. I'd be much more inclined to be a buyer if they were in some dynamic poses and armed with weapons of some kind.

Love them! Of course I would love them more in 28mm!

As for sales of the figures as collectibles, they are not selling to gamers and miniatures enthusiasts. They are selling to Trailer Park Boys fans.

To the target market Bob Murch is probably a "Who?" But Bubbles is a legend.

Now, where's my rum and coke?

I agree with Chick but what if there were a line of zombies to go with these. A whole new option for the figures. A zombie version game might be more family friendly.

These seem to come already painted or are they cast in color? Why cannot this be done with wargame figures, 28mm scale. What is the rough price of the figures?

Bob Murch Sponsoring Member of TMP26 Mar 2014 12:33 p.m. PST

They come pre-painted. The reason why this can't be done with most 28mm figs is the large expense of setting up injection moulding plastics. I don't know the total outlay that High Roller made to get these made but 30k would be in the ballpark I think. As they've sold 7k games to date and are just getting prepped to sell through major stores, the upfront cost is something they can swallow.

My average new 28mm figure release is under 100 units and that makes plastics pretty unaffordable in my current structure.

Every home in Canada will own one. It will go on the mantle next to the Best of Rush compilation tapes.

Bob Murch Sponsoring Member of TMP06 Jun 2014 9:29 p.m. PST

and the collected works of Pierre Burton.

I'd be interested if they were 28mm, but not at all in 50mm.

As an Old School Olde Pharte metal, not plastic.

Irregardless, splendid work on great, multi-use characters!
