I knew someone would eventually make a fortune doing space pigs.

Even more so if they're Exhibitionist Nazi Space Pigs.

Tah!

3 mutated thumbs up for the pig fig. I hope they do a platoons worth of nazi space swine.

I'm sorry, but I cannot keep quiet any longer. The plethora of ridiculous figures coming onto the market is unbelievable.

Is there honestly a demand for "Pigs in Space" (echoes of the Muppets)?

Can we expect someone to come up with painting schemes for the 1st Foot & Mouth Pork Regiment?

When can we expect a figure representing SEALS? Will they be seals, or Kermit in a suit?

Your right Prince Pants. What we really need is a 16th company doing ww II inspired sci-fi troops. That would be just dandy. Or orcs. More orcs. There's a shortage of them.

Now that´s a freakin´ miniature... somehow it reminds me of the Nazi-Communist-Pigs from the old Disney show "Talespin"...

Weird.

And I loathe to think what horrible things it did to "Bakuretsu Hunter"´s Chocolate Misu to steal her costume...

That's the wonderful thing about capitalism. You have the right to produce anything you think will sell, and the marketplace will judge your judgement.

And remember, no one every went broke underestimating the taste of the American people.

Communist swine!

No, really, I mean it... :)

We already *do* Kermit in a suit...more or less...as part of the Critter Commandos line...:D

The idea of the American people having taste is definetly in the realms of fantasy

Cool fig, oddly disturbing. Do I have a need for one? Not really. Now those elephant warriors are really cool but these figs are kind of expensive aren't they? Those elephant figs would be over $10 CAD each for me and that's before shipping.

Let's put the proper blame wher it is due, these sculptors are all Frenchies.

NBFGH with Attitude Fezian27 Feb 2005 2:16 p.m. PST

I only wish they'll do a zombie version of that fig.

People will want to field whole armies of those in rogue trader tournaments.

Big Miller Bro27 Feb 2005 2:53 p.m. PST

wow- I have an urge to do a remake of the movie Animal Farm- very very nice sculpt!

RKE Dave27 Feb 2005 3:33 p.m. PST

woo, like the wizard and udnead on thier site, who sculpted those? some of the gobo types look slightly rackhamish' possibly some nihues sculpts of assassin fame?

nvdoyle27 Feb 2005 4:40 p.m. PST

How about some 28mm-scale minis of the Snouts/Fithip, from 'Footfall'?

"The idea of the American people having taste is definetly in the realms of fantasy."

So, what figures should they be producing? Muscle-bound Conan wanabes with surfboard size swords? Me, I just complain about a figure's looks. If it's ugly or dumb, I say it's ugly or dumb. I have never implied that someone should not produce them. Had the pigs been orangutans, would you have been happier?

What's your next complaint? Copplestone producing dinosaurs? Capitulation producing war of Austrian Succession figures? That's a boring war, nobody cares about it...

Personally, I think that it is more valid to complain that someone does NOT produce a cetain figure, than to complain that they do. (Much like the virtuous Roman Senator.) THAT part of your rant had a bit more validity. But to think that someone producing Nazi Space Pigs somehow keeps SEALS off the market is to assume a zero-sum game. That is as dumb as thinking that if we do not spend money on the Space Shuttle that it automatically gets spent on AIDS.

Prophet27 Feb 2005 11:35 p.m. PST

The space shuttle astronauts have AIDS!!? I knew aliens were behind it....

I think the gent who made critical comment is overlooking the obvious fact that four legs are bad and two legs are good. Poor old horse!

Interesting - a nicely sculpted. Not for me, but interesting. John do you have any of the Disckworld 25mm figures? There's a librarian...
